New Diapering System

Flushable inserts in a "little g" cover that don't cost much more than disposables. You can compost the urine soaked inserts and even save on water. Available in a few retail outlets (Oregon, yay!) and by mail-order. They offer automatic delivery, too. So you can have them bill your credit card, then delivered right to your door. Each purchase also helps support the Children's Health Environmental Coalition's Blue Butterfly campaign. Wow, I would have jumped on these if I'd known about them when DD arrived. Has anyone tried them?
