Re: What my SIL said to me...

umm EWW. My 1yo wore some disposables recently and his morning one was literally
SOAKING wet. We had tons of leaks even with changing him every 2-3 hours, I cannot imagine going that long. That is just plain gross. I would be afraid my kid would smell!

Re: What my SIL said to me...

My mom used to babysit a little girl who was a few months younger than me, and for the entire day the mom would send only 2 diapers for her. I think it is a not-so-uncommon attitude to not change disposables until they are completely saturated.

Re: What my SIL said to me...

I had a friend who did the same thing.....she says "well they're good for 12hrs and I change him every 8, how great is that.. only 3 diapers a day"
Me: "real great...." slowly backing away , wondering if they're doing long term studies on children who sit in urine soaked chemicals for the first 2yrs of their lives. I really don't know what to say to people... it's so mainstream. I don't think there is anything wrong with using disposables, to each their own... however I think that sometimes adults forget to put themselves in their LO's shoes KWIM... I wouldn't use the same feminine hygiene product for 8hrs of awake time... Anyhow, that was my rant for the evening

DISGUSTING. That poor child. every time i see a baby with a sposie so full of pee that it's sagging between their poor little legs, i want to cry. I change my 3 year old (special needs and late to PT) every single time he wets, even twice an hour if need be.

Re: What my SIL said to me...

I don't know who would be in their right mind to think that it's ok to only use a few diapers a day. Cloth or sposies. I change my son every time he is wet or soiled, so i go through a lot of diaps. Especially since my son drinks a lot. We can easily go through ten to fifteen diaps a day!! I don't care I just can't deal with him being wet. I know I wouldn't want to sit in my own pee even if it is absorbed into materail? I babysit and the mom only uses about five a day. I just ccan't do it I change way more than she does but I try not to get carried away.

Re: What my SIL said to me...

That's gross. My sister works in daycare and she has parents tell her that they only change when the diaper explodes......ugh. I've had someone else say that they don't see the cost savings to using cloth because they only use three or so diapers a day. That just makes me so sad. I agree with the previous poster who said that parents sometimes forget to put themselves in thier child's position. I certainly wouldn't keep the same pad on for 8+ hours, so why I would do that to my child. So so gross. Those poor babies....

Sadly I could not. My husbands family has done so much criticizing of me to my DH that he has had to tell them to stop (mil told my DH to make me use sposies because she used cloth and it is just to hard)

I promised to keep my opinions to myself and not criticize her parenting choices. (however bad they may be)

Re: What my SIL said to me...

I guess she likes to see saggy pampers hanging low between her babies knees...?
UGH
