Five years ago, my daycare in TN used cloth diapers, but with my second who went to daycare starting 1 1/2 years ago we had to send sposies. Same state different daycare. I do think it probably is a law, but some day cares a willing to allow it, while others aren't.

My dc uses cloth for us but they insist that we use disposable liners so they can throw out the poop and the poop they throw out goes in bags that we supply....

We also use pockets there so I don't know about the cover. But my understanding when they explained it to me was they can't have poop just sitting in wetbag. Disposable liners solved it.

Do you mean they cant just put the poop in the diaper pail with all the sposies filled with poop? that is a new one!
I would check bc when i was interviewing daycares i got every answer from "yes, little susie is in cloth" to "no it is illegal." Lol. From centers five minutes apart.

I know, strange right. But I was just so glad they did cloth that we brought in the bags which they then put in with the disposable...

Really? Which one? I haven't looked into other options extensively because DH insists DD goes to the daycare associated with our work, but they straight up told me no cloth when I registered DD and said it was a state daycare regulation. I know a few of the other babies at the dc are in cloth at home as well. I'd be happy to buy more AIOs and supply any sorts of bags they wanted, just so DD could wear cloth at school too!

We tried a work-associated daycare in nashville. I think it is "top-rated" but it didn't work for us. We found them to be more institutional and not very flexible/accommodating. It really depends on the center and what is important for your family. I highly recommend the JCC and Goddard if you ever wanted to consider alternatives.

I was looking into this while trying to figure out the best way to approach my day care about cloth. I had found a website that had every state listed and there are no states that have laws against cloth just rules regulating their storage after they are soiled. I just cannot remember the link. Might want to google it.

It seems to weird to me that it's ok to roll up a disposable with pee and poop and put it in a bag but not cloth? What's the difference in health concerns I wonder?

Is there a reason they can't just flush the poop (using the disposable liners)? 'Cause wouldn't that be better than putting it in a bag and then in the garbage?
