My son's is not long, but I just think that if it were to somehow break, there would be one bead that would be loose, and it only takes I just always take it off when he's sleeping or in carseat or away from me.

Re: Why do people hate cloth?!

Most of our friends laughed and joked about how long we would actually use cloth. They are still snarky about it sometimes. I just love how stoked DH is about cloth. He loves to brag about it

Re: Why do people hate cloth?!

People are quite lazy I think, they want the easiest option even if it isn't the best, they convince themselves that their choice is the best. I also think a lot of people worry a lot about what others think and they don't want to do something that's a bit 'different to the normal'.

eta I think in my family and friends there are also quite a few who would really like to see me fail too. They just can't imagine I could make cloth work.

Re: Why do people hate cloth?!

Funny how people these days are looking for ways to become more and more frugal. My cousin has twins, sahm, she looks for so many ways to save money... super into couponing, they garden, compost, don't eat out much, etc (so they do a lot of "green" stuff as well as find ways to be frugal)... the thought of cloth diapering or breastfeeding was never going to happen.

Same here! Then she started cloth diapering her foster son I gave her half my stash.. and bought more hehe! lol

Nothing like trying to clean up a blow out beside the road or in an aiplane bathroom to totally make you give up sposies.
lol. I CD because I don't want all those chemicals on my boy. AND side benefit- I can't stand poo, seriously- ended the blowouts!! I always held my breath the car ride to daycare because I KNEW DS would blow out before I could drop him off. hehe. They would change him (I'm supposed to at drop off) I think because they didn't want to see me freak out about how much I couldn't stand disposables (that and they're nice people). My friends don't get cloth diapers at all. at. all. People just don't seem to know (or care) about cloth. Or realize human waste isn't supposed to go in landfills. How many people do you know who scrape their sposies?!? I haven't looked recently... does it still say it on the sposie packaging?

And I old skool cloth diaper. I sold off all my systems. I do now venture to fitteds- but if I want dependable, I do prefolds. That's what my mom used on me. I was allergic to disposables as a baby.
a happy mama with
thanks DH
