    I'd say it's subjective. They're bulky but all things being equal, I prefer disposables the vast majority of the time. So I think you find them so comfy for the same reason I like disposables and the reason most people would look at both of us as if we had a screw loose.

    I grew up with disposable diapers and I prefer disposable diapers. I've used cloth diapers as well and I love them as well. The one thing about cloth diapers that I love is that the padding doesn't fall apart or shift.

    i grew up with cloth diapers, but was out of them WAY too soon for my own liking. - Back in those days, laundering diapers was quite a "labor of Love" and most parents wanted their kids out of them as soon as possible, for obvious reasons. - But as a caretaker, this is a great way to really "spoil" a partner by showing that You really enjoy this "labor of Love" for them, or to "spoil" Yourself with this luxurious comfort. - Cloth diapers wick and hold moisture very well, and they feel immensely comfortable against the skin. - i Love babykins, Angelfluff, and "Loving Comfort" cloth diapers -

    Gauze cloth diapers are very soft and feel good against "things". I did order some birdseye cloth diapers that turned out to be a little scratchy. I've washed them many times, but they haven't softened up very much. I only wear them during the day when I know I'll be changing out of them into the night weight gauze.

    You must be doing it wrong , what type washing powder do you use and how do you dry them ?.
    I use a non bio (fairy in uk ) and tumble dry them

    There seem to be a few birdseye diaper fabrics out there, but the birdseye diapers I got from Baby Pants were rather un-soft. Like dogboy, I washed and washed them, hoping the texture would become more pleasing, but it never did. In defense of Baby Pants, though, I have some of their twill diapers as well as some of their training pants, and those things are awesome. I'm not a birdseye fan, though. Or not a fan of the Baby Pants kind, anyway.

    For a long time, you used to be able to buy Gerber-brand birdseye prefolds in Babies 'R' Us and department stores. They're less common now. Years ago, I bought a bag of these and found them to be quite soft and squishy, so I don't know. I think the weave as well as the yarns themselves were more open and airy.

    Back on topic: I love the feel of cloth diapers -- of pinned-on prefolds, especially. I don't know if I'd call the feeling "comfy" so much as I would call it "diapery." I always know when I'm wearing a diaper -- which I like. My underwear is very comfy, but rather boring.

    I love the feel of my twill prefolds. I'm in a soaked one now and it still feels nice an comfy and warm.
    I'm glad also to see some sunshiny weather so I can hang my diapers out side to dry.

    For a bit of context here, I grew up in cloth diapers.

    That aside, my fantasies always involved disposables--because I liked their appearance more, and to this day I still think of baby disposables when I think of "diapers".

    However, I have yet to really find a disposable that has met those expectations--so I've resorted to making my own cloth diapers, such that they appear/feel like disposables but are sized to fit/appear correctly. Plus, I can make them thicker if I want to. Are they comfy? Yes, but it's not because they are made of cloth--it's because they meet my expectations of what a diaper is supposed to feel like.

    So, I suppose for me the style of the diaper matters more than what material it is made out of. Cloth diapers just-so-happen to offer more flexibility in terms of style and thickness.
