I asked my sister-in-law more than once if they were planning to use disposable or cloth and she hadn’t decided when I bought a giant box of diapers to make a diaper cake for them. 🙂 I’m sure once my niece is big enough to fit in them (she was teeny and they’re 1-2’s) they’ll get used when they travel or don’t have clean diapers.
I did check her registry and ask though, so it seems registering for diapers and covers or just putting the word out should be enough.

@MrsB1015: Ummm it was a Jagermeister gift set…it came with a bottle of Jager in an ice bucket, some shot glasses and other things. It was suitable for our crowd….we kept it under a box so it would be a surprise. We got hundreds of diapers… she actually outgrew the newborn size and still have a ton of those left…
I am sure if the crowd is mostly made of people that are close to you and know you want to cloth diaper…then they will bring only cloth…

I think it depends on what you register for. If you register for cloth diapers people will notice and not get you disposibles. That said, I registered for disposibles and only got 2 small bags of diapers– but at least they were the pampers swaddlers I wanted!

@MrsB1015: I think that’s a good idea!
Out of the last five baby showers I’ve gone to, I’ve seen maybe two packages of disposable diapers as gifts. If you reigster for CDs, maybe people will get the hint. Otherwise, just have a few people spread the word. If all else fails, at least you can take them back.
