Going out of town CD'ing Q

I am going to my sil's house this weekend for the holiday and really want to cd. Do you think it is tacky or rude to ask if I can cd at her house? I also want to know if this has ever happened to you, but the person you asked said no. I am kinda sensitive and I don't know what to say if she says I can't.

Re: Going out of town CD'ing Q

We're leaving to go to the MIL/FIL's home and my father's home. We asked MIL/FIL last night if it was ok. They were fine with it. We are going to be there for 7+ days so obviously we'll need to do wash & don't want them grossed out. They are fine with it (they cd'd their children so it's no new, kwim?).

If you are only going for 2-3 days and you have enough diapers to last just stick them in the wetbag and wash when you get home.

I don't think it's tacky. We're going on a long road trip this summer, if someone says no I'll just take my cute baby to another relatives house to wash

Re: Going out of town CD'ing Q

We're leaving this weekend to go to my parents' house for a week, and when I asked my mom she said, "Do you think we used disposables for you?" (they never did)
No, not tacky. People get grossed out, but they forget all kinds of nasty things that go into washing machines.

Re: Going out of town CD'ing Q

I go to my moms for a few days at a time & never thought to ask her...I mean, I didnt ask her if it was okay to use sposies....I took care of them the way she wanted (pee in kitchen can...poop outside can). I just toss the dipes in my wetbag & never hear a word about it. I even washed them there onces.

Re: Going out of town CD'ing Q

I think it might be wise to word the question the right way. It's not, "Do you mind if I CD my child?", but "I CD my child; would it be OK if I used your washing machine for a load or 2 of diapers while I'm there?"

It's really not her business how you cover your baby's rear, so why ask for trouble? Ask for what you really need, and then you won't feel as offended if the answer is no.

Re: Going out of town CD'ing Q

We never use sposies so I wouldn't even ask...maybe I am tacky. For me, cd are a parenting choice. I wouldn't ask my host if I could bf, ykwim?

Like pp, you will throw them in the wetbag and she won't know the difference. If it bothers her if you wash them there, I'd go to laundry mat.

To ask if you can use CDs in her house? No need to ask permission on that one IMO. If you want to wash there, ask if she minds if you wash your cloth diapers at her place and if not, where is the nearest laundry mat... no biggie

Re: Going out of town CD'ing Q

Thanks for all the advice. The question really was about the machine washing, but I think you all got that (sorry I wasn't more clear). Also, I don't know why I said weekend, I will be there 5 days and I don't want that much backed up laundry . I will go ahead and bring them, and ask to use her washer. If she has a problem, I can always go to the local laundry mat (like you all said). I forgot about those Anywho, thanks again ladies. Good points too about bf'ing and visits from af.
