I'm looking into the possibility of cloth diapering our Littlest. Sooo...for the cloth diapering mamas...

1-Why do you cloth?
2-Is it sanitary or does it get messy?
3-What brand do you use?
4-Do you agree that it's saved a lot of $$?
5-How often do you do laundry?

Any mamas try cloth diapering and switch back to disposables?

1-Why did you switch to disposables?
2-What brand(s) did you try?

I'm sorry if my questions are dumb. I have never even considered cloth diapering because honestly it seems so unsanitary and messy. I know I am totally wrong, please don't fry me over that statement, it's just I really don't know. Help me!
