Got a dozen of these for my first kid, used them a ton, and then again with second kid. They are still in decent shape and ready for kid #3. People sell these on Craigslist when they are done with them, can't do that with disposables. You don't have to be 100% cloth diapering, we used these at home and disposables when out and about. Less trash, less money spent on trash, and less rashes on little bums. Win win win!
