My kids started daycare when they turned 2 and everything that went to daycare (and them) came home smelling like disposable diapers. It was so gross. I think it must be one of those things that you don't know is happening if you're using them. Like how you can't smell something bad in your own house.

On that note we also bought two Bumbo seats from someone on Craigslist when my twins were infants and they smelled like disposable wipes. OMG the smell was so horrible. So glad we never used those either.

I've traveled with and without cloth. My oldest never had a disposable on him, and my youngest was CD'd until a month ago when he had to have surgery and we just figured we'd stop for the last few months until he starts to use the toilet. They were too darn convenient!

If people are on a long trip, I recommend prefolds and covers. They can go the longest between washes and can have rougher detergents on them. I did pockets once and would never do it again--had to strip after.

You'll want to run a load of bleach as the first no matter what. You wouldn't believe what grows in a washing machine, cloth diapers or no.

We CD at home, but I always just buy the 7th generation or Huggies natural sposies for our trips.

BUT, If I were going to CD it wouldn't be too bad since we are DVC and stay in 1 bdrm villas (BTW, the washers and dryers do not get gross just because you cd, do you really think we'd wash our clothes in a washer full of poop?!).

I would use flips or the grovia hybrids probably. i would probably bring a combinations of the biodegradable/disposable inserts for when we are out, and the regular cloth inserts for use at the resort or night time.

one of the big reasons i don't CD on vacation is simply the packing space that my pockets or AIOs take up if i need several per day. So i think prefolds/covers or the hybrids (Flips, gDiapers, GroVia) with more inserts than covers would work well.

too much effort for me on vacation though. lol

I agree we cloth at home but at Disney we didnt.

1. Didnt want to carry used ones around
2. Washers are not stripped of soaps that can harm the cloths ones
3. Washers may not be able to soak and rinse enough
4. Cost of having to wash and dry could get crazy

I would not wash my diapers out in the sink at the park, not where people are washing hands and where there is no way to really clean it. I would simply put the "solids" in the toilet, and then put the diaper into my wetbag (a sealed, waterproof, zippered bag) and back into my diaper bag until i get back to the resort.

I also used disposables when we traveled. It was just easier all around. I brought some special non gel diapers but ran out of them and ended up with Huggies (she was allergic to others). I had a diaper service so doing diapers in public washing machines does squig me out. Sorry CD'ers!

Even the "unscented" wipes have a slight chemical smell to me.

There are laundry facilities at all the Disney resorts (for a cost). Unless you're in a one or two bedroom DVC villa, which have in-room laundry facilities, it's going to be laundromat-type setup. Although I'd imagine a lot of parents would prefer not to put in the time or money (for the washer, dryer and detergent) to do laundry at a resort. It's also somewhat beyond me how dirty diapers are going to be carried through the parks.

But those who are very committed to cloth diapering can find a way, I'm sure. But would they really get washed in the sinks in public restrooms?

We use cloth diapers at home, but for our trip in June I will be bringing Earth's Best Disposables. My DS gets diaper rash from Huggies and Pampers so I can't use those.

Washing diapers in a washing machine isn't any different than washing underwear, or clothes that baby was wearing when his disposable diaper leaked. But I would not recommend washing diapers in the hotel sink
