I voted "not on a regular basis" b/c YDD breaks out them. I do have some on hand for those JIC moments, but don't use them often at all. With the older two I used them at night and every now and then if I needed a break from laundry so a fairly regular basis.

Nary a sposie in site. sometimes I think they might be handy, but honestly we can't afford them.

I don't generally use them, but with this little guy, he generally sweets my bed through a sposie about once a week.  Can't find anything to hold him.  With me being sick, my kids are changing more dupes than usual and I mostly have pf's with just a few fitteds thrown in, so we're using them a lot lately.  (My kids can't do the pf's, only fitteds or aio's.)

I have a few from the various hospital visits when I think I am only going to be there for a few hours and it turns into many more.

i use them regularly because emily is sensitive to everything on the planet and i have to use rash cream all the time. we also use sposies at night. here lately, she has been naked, so that is helpful ;) i would say i use cloth MORE, but sposies have their place.
now, with tiffany, there was rarely a sposie in the house.

I didn't have any for about 2.5 years, but just bought 2 packs of sposie pull ups to use on our trip last week.

None in our home!   We used them for ODS for the first 3 days of life (in the hospital).  For YDS I flouted the hospital's sposie only rule and used cloth.  YDS has only worn one in his life - the one they put on him on the OR after my CS.  I wasn't going to argue with that.

I'm not anti-sposie though.  Cloth works very well for us and I simply haven't felt the need to use a sposie. We don't travel much.  If I had a problem that I thought a sposie would solve, I'd totally go there.

Absolutely! We are 100% sposie right now. I have taken breaks from CDs quite a few times over the years. Will I go back? That remains undecided for now. I have never had a problem with sposies, so its not a big thing to us.

I put not right now. 
 
DS1 was a completely sposie baby and DS1 wore them until he was 14 months when I switched to cloth and for the next year DH would only put on a CD if someone else was doing the next change.  So 1 day a week and 5 nights a week we used sposies.  The we ran out and DH forgot to buy more.
 
So we have been sposie free for awhile.
 
i am not opposed to them.   They have their place, IMO.  If we ever take a trip over 4 days i will use sposies.

We don't have them either.  I could probably scrape up enough in our budget for them...but I hate pulling money from things I think are more important that the convenience of sposies!

Since switching to cloth almost 4 years ago I have not purchased a sposie. I figure that if I have cloth, why would I buy something else.

I switched when DD was shy of 2 and ODS was 6 months, so I used sposies for a while; but can't imagine going back. I don't find them to be any "easier" either.

I night diaper in sposies and send them to grandma's.  I'd send him in cloth to grandmas (she doesn't mind), but she doesn't change him often enough Wink

Otherwise, I cloth during the day and on short trips.

I voted "not right now - we do cloth exclusively" although I think I have one in the house... we use them for really bad rashes (which happen rarely) and when we go on trips longer than two nights (maybe twice a year?), other than that it is just cloth here. I am grateful for them when I do use them as I do think they have their place and when I'm on vacation I like to make it easy on myself!
