    I have found that the poop once they started drinking cows milk has been WAY worse than the initial stages. Before that I didn't think we needed a sprayer. Now understand their purpose!

    @zaelia and @flick....speaking of the messes, especially the really bad ones, what do you use to clean? I can't imagine using bleach only because I have quite a sensitivity to it. Does normal washing in a delicate, chemical-free detergent do the trick?

    We're cloth diapering our newborn. We use a diaper service. The great thing about using a service is that it's up to them to worry about the messes. It may seem pricey when compared to buying and washing your own, but in our case it's still cheaper than disposables (and obviously better for the environment).

    In the case of our service, they offer something like 6 different sizes of diapers, so the fit is really good even on our little 6lbs newborn.

    Oh noes! I'm probably going to invest in one once we move. Right now we have an awesome shower sprayer that happens to reach where I need it for the toilet, but I can see myself needing one.

    Good question - no, do not bleach your diapers. In order to get out stains, you hang them in the sun and the sun will basically bleach the stains out. As for washing detergent, there are a few different philosophies. Some people put together their own, homemade, detergents, some people use good old Tide, other's buy diaper specific detergent like Rockin Green - it really just depends on what you find works best.
