I don't think cloth diapers are a hassle at all. But what do you mean by hassle? Are they a little more work than throwing a disposable away and continuing to fill up the landfills, yes, you have to wash them rather than just throw them away. But they are just as easy to use as disposables, they are much better for the environment, chemical free and safer for baby, and the save $2,000-2,500 per child versus disposables. Plus they are ADORABLE! No hassle to me at all with all these benefits!
