    Kicking? I want to do some kicking!
    Do you use cloth diapers and have a septic tank. Do you do anything special? how many diapers do you use in rotation?

    I have had a septic tank for 8 years. Washed dipes the whole time. I have 1-2 babies in dipes at a time w/ about 4 dozen, I am guessing, in rotation. I do not do anything special.

    We had 3 in diapers at one point and had a septic system. All we did was shake off the solids into the toilet and flushed. I did find some septic safe liners that I used for a while, too. That helped get the solids off. ;)
    But it wasn't anything different than we did when we moved and had city water.

    We shake off solids just so the pail doesn't stink, we use about 24 dipes in rotation and we don't use or do anything special.
