Did you use it til toilet training or was there an age where you found toddler poop too hard to deal with and switched to disposables?
For us I have never been able to use it til toilet training, Ds is 3 and still in disposables and has been from around 2 yrs and a few months when I just couldn't do cloth anymore.

DD1 stopped cloth at 2y8 month when she toilet trained.
DD2 is still in cloth now and will be until toilet training.
I've been using the exact same nappies since DD1 was born, they are the one size fits newborn-toddler type. DD1 was about 16.5kg when she toilet trained and they were still working fine.

Until toilet trained here. DS1 just stopped and is training, DS2 is 15months and still in cloth. Worked well for us as we just use OSFM.

I didn't use cloth with DS one, but have my stash ready to go for baby 2. I would have thought toddler poop would be easier than baby poop as you can use a liner and just drop it into the loo?

Until DS was about 2. We didn't toilet train until 2.5, but he began weeing large amounts that the cloth nappies didn't hold it anymore and they were leaking all the time.
Perhaps it was also his size? They appeared to fit well, but he has always been quite tall for his age.
We now use the same nappies with DD (14 months) with no issues - so it wasn't the nappies, it was the amount of wee he was making at that age.
Will continue using with her until we toilet train unless the same thing happens again.
And yes, agree with the previos PP - Toddler poo much easier to clean out of nappies than baby poo!

Toddler poo in a disposable is just plain feral. Much easier to deal with in a cloth nappy!
The worst part is the just starting solids poo where it is slimy, semi lumpy and sticky. DS1 was in full time cloth until the age of 26 months when we started toilet training, he got the hang of wees straight away but getting every poo in the toilet didn't happen for a couple of months.
DD is a heavy night wetter and we did night time disposables with her until the other night when we'd 'run out' (translation, I got sick of the suckers and decided I'd rather deal with changing bed linen)
She had her first full night back in cloth last night and actually came and woke me in the middle of the night because she didn't want to sleep in a wet nappy. A trip to the toilet later (first ever!) and she was happy to go back to bed. Woke up dry this morning so tomorrow we're off to buy big girl undies for her so she can start toilet training.

DS is 2yrs3months and I stopped about 2 weeks ago. The BBH fitters were a bit tight on his legs so I decided to start TT. He wears undies in the house and a pull up when we go out and a regular disposable for sleep/nap time or the pull up as its usually dry.
I could use cloth for sleep time but I think it's gross to leave nappies for a week and can't really be bothered doing a wash for 2/3 nappies (2/3 days worth).

Until TT. Only started disposables at night once my cloth got too small. I didn't think it was economical to invest in bigger.

Unfortunately 18 months. DD TT'd at 2.5 but there was not a cloth nappy on the market that could last one pee, let alone overnight.
