Here is our daughter photographed in each of the options. There's no question which she prefers in the comfort realm. And there also no question which she or I prefer in the fashion department.
First, the disposable diaper:
She tried successfully to take it off. As T Rex said, "Mama, she doesn't like paper pants. They're disgusting". Two things about this comment. One, anything that T Rex doesn't like is disgusting so I don't think he really thinks they are that bad. Secondly, Bebe Sister has not worn disposable diapers in over a year so it's no wonder she does not like the way they feel. How would you feel if you strapped on paper and plastic pants?
Ironically, the five minutes that Bebe Sister wore the disposable diaper she actually did pee in it. Thus, I actually had a disposable diaper in the trash this week. A first in a very long time. In fact, with not having any diapers to throw away, we really don't make much trash.
There you have it - cloth wins out - comfortable AND fashionable with the bonus of no stinky trash.
When choosing clothes for yourself or your children, what is important to you - comfort, fashion, or something else?
