Birth board preconceptions

Postby Twinkletoes » Fri Mar 23, 2012 2:18 pm

I don't go on my bb very often, but am both surprised and frustrated by a thread about cloth.

So many people have mentioned they're going to use or try cloth that there's a thread in defense of sposies! There were less than a dozen cloth users on my last bb, so this is great progress!

But sadly, the (now vocal) majority are doing down cloth, with the same OLD :roll: arguments about it being hard work, not working, smelly, expensive, bad for the environment etc. :evil:

It makes me so MAD! I remember this feeling from last time, and I got to a point where I let it wash over me, but at the moment I'm enraged at the injustice of it! These people who have no experience or knowledge are busy persuading others to reject cloth for reasons that are rubbish!

...On the bright side, my first fluffy post in 2 years arrived today! :dancing:

How frustrating. I totally agree with you that people who've never tried it don't really have a right to persuade others that cloth is not worth it for whatever reason - they haven't tried it so how can they know?! Whereas pretty much all cloth users will have tried sposies, so can make a valid comparism.

People always think I'm weird for wanting to use cloth, so it's nice to come here & not feel like a weirdo. :giggle:

I've never used a birth board and from what I've read here, I'm glad LOL. I'm so glad I have this place for all my mad, hippy, treehugging ways. :lol:
