The Cloth Dilemma

So I am online at 12:32 a.m. and don't know if my mommy brain is working quite right, so I'm counting on all you women out there to give me your opinion straight. I am seriously considering switching to cloth diapers {for the following reasons, lest you think this is a whim}

* From the research I have done, cleaning them is really not that bad, and they smell less.
* Come on, it really is better for the environment, though I'm no tree hugger.
* I'm thinking fleece has to feel better on those little sweet cheeks, more so than cotton plastic crap - also around their legs.
* Cloth diapers have better airflow, which means less diaper rash.
* It may be a lot of money upfront, but it will save me at least $230 this year alone, not to mention the years and additional babies to come.
* I can buy them wholesale using my business license, giving me an even greater savings.
* Cloth diapers have been known to help potty train sooner.

Let's hear it ladies - have at me!

I LOVE my cloth diapers, I had two kids in disposable and on the third I though "there has to be something to those cloths" Anyhow I bought bum genius and I absolutley LOVE THEM!!! I cant afford a lot so we do both cloth and disposable for now. SOON to have more cloths!
