We've gotten mixed reactions. Some people wonder why we do it because it's "so much harder then sposies." I dont agree with that. We get the people that think it's gross and we get the people who are interested in it.

My mom is wierd about it and I havent even had my baby yet. She is constantly making sure I know that "she won't use cloth when he's at her house".

Im hoping that this will change once she sees that it isnt that big a deal. Its not like she will be washing the diapers!

No, people don't treat me differently, and if they did, I really wouldn't care!!

I find that people are just uneducated about CD'ing...people aren't afraid to ask me about it, and I welcome the opportunity to talk about and maybe change their opinions about cloth!

I don't understand how people think that it's gross - it's not as if you never get your hands dirty if you use a sposie, there is just no way around it. Unless you wear gloves all the time, your hands are going to get dirty whether or not you use cloth or sposies, that is for sure!

I used to feel weird when ds was small because I was so on the fence, not super crunchy but not super mainstream either. Now, the momsclub I'm in has really branched out. I think there are several moms who cd, babywear, make their own babyfood, etc. I don't think anybody is judging one way or the other.

Our families on the other hand, they think I'm whacked.

Sad I know...But so far i have hidden it from everyone I know. the only one who knows is my sil because she came over to watch the baby so dh could take me to the ER. We came back 7 hours later and he was still in the dirty diaper (there were sposies on the changing table for her!) her reasoning: I didn't know what to do with one made out of fabric. So ya, that's kind of why I haven't told anyone....

Re: Do people treat you differently because you use cloth diapers?

I haven't gotten any odd comments from people seeing them, but I got a lot of discouragement from people before I started.

I get a lot of questions about it from people who are honestly interested, though. Then again, I live in a city that has been described as 10sq miles of Eutopia in the center of a conservative reality. We're the capitol and a college town and very crunchy.
