I used mainly pocket diapers or prefolds with covers, but I was always curious about disposable inserts. Are they much easier? How do they compare as far as environmental impact goes?

I think if you're going to go cloth, just go full out. Remembering to put one thing in the trash/toilet and the other in the pail, etc. just seems like more work to me. I know they make "Eco-friendly" disposable inserts, but they are still waste product.
