Diaper Service vs Wash at Home


Hello, I am currently 25 weeks pregnant and my husband and I were working on our baby registry when he brought up cloth diapers. Honestly, it had never crossed my mind to use them. But after reading about them on various websites, I am open to it and I do want to do what's best for the environment and our baby. He recommends using a diaper cleaning service while I say, why can't we just wash them at home? Do you have any thoughts on this issue?


Of course I would say to wash them at home!  But here are few, quick facts behind my opinion (vs Diaper Service):

Prefold and Cover


Cool.  Easy.  Snaps and Velcro!

Ease of use - A Diaper Service uses prefolds and covers (love them, do not get me wrong - but there are easier methods)

You can buy your own prefolds and covers to wash yourself AND KEEP for rags later.  (I just sold 3 dozen newborn prefolds to an auto-detail shop!) 
Get Started in Cloth Kit $163.99

Money - Service costs as much as disposables!  Or more.  Wash-At-Home modern cloth diapers will SAVE YOU $2000!

Carbon footprint - Service uses bleach to thoroughly sanitize diapers from many babies.  And lots of gas to deliver!
A MUST for cloth diaper users!

Poo - you still have to deal with it no matter which way you choose: Disposable, Service, Wash at Home (FLUSH down toilet, please!)

One last thing.  We are NOT opposed to disposable diapers.  They are useful in our super-hectic World.  But PLEASE use only good, non-chlorine, eco-friendly disposables: for your baby's Skin, for our Earth.  (Check out this system, the best of both Worlds:
