I am a stay at home Mom myself, but I know that for many working parents, the decision to cloth diaper at daycare is one fraught with worry and stress.

What will your care-provider think?

Will they even allow it?

Will they be willing or able to keep up with your diapering routine?

What supplies will you need to send every day?
