tjkdlhb:There's no CD police. Do what works for your family.
Oh, there isn't? *Takes off shiny badge and puts it in dresser drawer*
Seriously though, we're all pretty relaxed around here, but we like to poke fun at each other every once in a while.
I do, because I'm new at it. All I use is prefolds with covers which after trying last night is not good for my toddler ON. He'll be in disposables until I get my daytime stash built up then I'll worry about trying to find cloth ON solutions.... or not. I haven't decided yet. My newest LO is due Apr 1 and I plan to exclusively cloth diaper him but I'm thinking by the time he's soaking through his ON, DS1 will be potty trined (hopefully).
I'm a SAHM but when I expressed my desire to start CDing w my friends, it was the DC workers and even director that were the first and only ones that tried to discourage me from it! I think I would've just used sposies for DC rather than argue with them about it if he were in DC.
We only CD on evenings, nights and weekends. Disposibles are included in the cost of our DC so we just have him use theirs while there, no biggie!
I used to think it needed to be an all or nothing thing too when I first started researching because that's the vibe I got but I have come to realize any CD'ing is good so I don't care anymore.
I use CDs whenever we are at home, but when we run errands, I put DD in sposies, since I don't feel like dealing with a bag of dirty CDs. She is not in DC, so it really isnt too often. I might change my mind as she gets older and I figure it out more...
But, CDs are a start up investment, and buying sposies all the time might lessen the financial reasons to CD.....

Get a wetbag to put in your diaper bag to hold the dirties. It's really NBD.
If LO is on solids, you can use a disposable liner and flush it after changing so that you aren't carrying poop. I didn't find that her poop smelled bad until she started solids.
