I would stand my ground but also wouldn't give them a choice and would hit the roof if they tried to go over my head and put a disposable on my child if there was cloth available, i think a few people have had problems with hospitals and nursery's saying they don't use cloth because its unhygenic which is rubbish! The dirty nappies are sealed in a wetbag out of everyones way whereas the nappy bins are on the ground where little hands can get to them. If they insist on having nappy sacks then you can even get those which are washable (available from Babykind). Pocket nappies are really simple so they shouldn't have a problem with them because surely you'd have them set up and ready to put on just as a disposable would be.
I'd also be inclined to use cloth wipes just to prove a point but then i use those at home and if annoyed do become extremely stubborn.
Thanks, problem is yesterday when I was all emotional about leaving him for the first time i said, nappies in the bag, flush the liner and whack it in nappy bag. and she said they wouldnt use them i didnt question it but now thinking back on it then maybe i should force the issue. As I said I have only been using them for a couple of days so am not quite fully equipped. Use a bucket at home and put them in nappy sack went I went out. I have a wet bag on order though.
TBH i didnt even know if i provided nappies or if that was norm but to say that they wont use cloth so i will have to pay for sposies is dead cheeky i think. I am still using sposie wipes. Trying to do it all as cheaply as possible atm so phasing things in.
Rhead: It will be mondays wed and thursday so that should be ok. I will look into getting the pockets. I am selling my jumperoo on ebay and should get about £50 for that so that should be enough to get me set up with secondhand pockets or aio?
