Smile He's doing it!

When I first started buying CDs DH was on-board to save money, then when they were actually washed and stuffed and I was leaving for work, he said, "I won't be using those. I'll be using the disposables on the shelf." When I started using cloth wipes he said they were, "Disgusting," and demanded that I keep disposable wipes. Not a problem, but I was frustrated with his attitude.
Well, since that first night when he used 'sposies, he actually has used CDs. Then, when I came home from work late Saturday night I was in the nursery unstuffing the pockets, when I realized the wipes with the diapers were cloth! I casually asked him about it when we were getting in bed, and he told me that the box of 'sposie wipes was empty (although there was a full case on the bottom shelf), so he just grabbed a cloth wipe (I keep them wet and in solution) and used it. He even said that they did a great job, and he was impressed that he'd only had to use one instead of 2-3 for 'sposies! I just might win him completely to cloth yet!

Re: He's doing it!

So smart to set him up for success like that! I favor prefolds and wool, but DH is all thumbs with them. I keep a couple of stuffed pockets on hand for him for when I'm away. I stopped buying the disposable wipes, so the temptation isn't there for him to use them. I just keep lots of cloth wipes everywhere in the house.

Re: He's doing it!

That's great! I can't get my DH to change a diaper, disposable or cloth. He just installed a diaper sprayer, so he did earn points that way. Oh well, at least I enjoy changing the cloth diapers. I don't think he knows what he's missing.
