Re: How many people have you converted?

Lots and lots of people in the past 18 years and it feels great! I used make diapers for shelters and I'd go in and talk to teen Mom's about how to use them. Every one of them that I knew of stuck with it after I showed them how easy CDing really is. If I could only convert my new SIL that is having her first baby in October, I'd be really happy. But, I know that will NEVER happen.

Re: How many people have you converted?

I know there have to be more that have done it...
After being here for a while, I think it would be great to even convert someone to part time. Maybe if their dc gets "regular" they could cd part time so they didnt have to deal with poo. I assume that is why most people dont cd? Well, that and daycare providers not allowing it.
*500 years* is what I say to get the wheels turning.

Re: How many people have you converted?

I have converted some people that really don't make much of a difference directly.

My SIL who already has two kids and done. She wished these CD were around when her children were babies. Hopefully she will spread the word to her younger friends.

My Mother, MIL, Step-MIL, FIL, and their friends. At first they thought I was nuts but now they think it is neat.

BIL has a 1 month old that I am watching. I went and started a stash for his kid. At first he was against it until Step-MIL, FIL, and DH raved about the CDs. Not like it will matter because the mother is not interested in doing it on her own yet. Too much work. But while her child is in my house he will not have a disposable on him!

Currently working on my friend who is due in September.

Re: How many people have you converted?

None for me, yet. I was close to two, and one decided not to after using sposies (the poop scared her) and the other, I'm not sure, b/c she's not had another yet, but likely not. I haven't given up yet! You don't know how much fun it is until you do it! the scary part is the unknown, so let's educate.

Zero. One friend used cloth for a bit a few years ago but I think she was using flats from her oldest ds and stopped when her dd outgrew the covers she was using.
