I am a not-yet-mommie, looking for more CD'ing information from you experienced mamas... Now that I am dead-set on CD'ing I am paying a lot more attention to diapering of other's kids than I ever have before (even though I have been around kids my whole life and babysat a lot....just didn't give diapers much thought....LOL)
So... I got to spend last weekend with my nephews (yippee!!!) and though the 2.5 yo is potty trained, the younger one (10 months) is still in diapers....so I got to see some diapering in action... My sil uses sposies. Not having a baby yet, and reading so much on the diapering forum about how often you have to change your baby, I was surprised at how long the sposies would last without needing to be changed (yes, I know that they sposies should be changed every two hours or so just like cloth, and sitting in a pee-filled diaper is nasty...but I think that it is pretty universal for people to leave them on longer than two hours sometimes...).
They are a very active family...always out and about, in and out of the car, visiting family, going to the park, going to the restaurant my sil and my brother own, etc. With all of that activity going on, I was trying to pay attention to when two hours would pass...it comes fast. It seems like it would be a big PITA to have to stop everything you are doing and change a diaper that often when you are out. I can imagine it at home, no problem, but when you are running around everywhere it seems like it would be tough.
Do you find that you don't go out as often using cloth? Do you use different diapers, like FB or HH when you go out? Especially for those of you who used to use sposies, do you feel more tied down to your house with them?
I am just trying to figure out what to expect when I start doing this.
