We went with cloth for both our sons, I didn't think anything of it. I actually preferred cloth to disposables. To be fair, my wife did the laundry but I would say the changes were 50/50 so I had plenty of experience with doing snaps/clasps/prefolds, and all that.

at home, cloth is ok... i highly recommend disposable when you are out, makes life a lot easier!

Also, maybe it's the cloth diapers that we got, i find cloth diapers leak easier than disposable.

Number 1 certainly leaks faster with cloth especially overnight or when a bit older. Blow outs are much more common with disposables though and frankly one of those is worse than 20 leaks.

in many countries of the world they only can afford cloth diapers......disposables are expensive and these companies charge a lot for them here knowing thta most prefer these.

washing is an issue here too. In other countries they have floors and special area to wash clothes in each home. Here its all tiled floors with no wash area. Only sink, toilet or bathtubs available so its limited

Every one is telling us that this is a bad idea.
I would just use regular diapers. Let her try for a couple weeks and she'll probably switch.
