We have had :
From mum 'you're machine will get clogged with poo and you will get poo on your clothes'
she has come round since though
From various people 'oh they look awfully hot, she is going to be all sweaty' - These comments are related to cloth nappies not wool -
Again, this time about wool 'babies cant wear wool in summer! Did your nana knit those?'
'you make life hard for yourself, all that extra washing and poo in your machine' - that seems to be of great concern - like machines dont wash away the dirty water or something??
And ditto with the baby legs - 'Love the socks!'
'Oh her bum looks so big, she will struggle to sit up and walk properly with that between her legs' - from various, and my dad - little was he aware - he was in cloth nappies as a baby and terries were far bigger than modern cloth and he walks fine
'dont they smell?' - oh i could go on and on and on about this one!
I do get inquisitive comments like, 'how do you find them?', 'how long do they last?' 'how much do they cost' etc etc which i dont mind
The worst one so far would have to be 'oh i was going to use them but X (usually partner) didnt want to use them, they prefer disps' - ARGH! My dp hated the idea of cloth with a passion but i went ahead anyway and he says he wouldnt put DD in a sposie if he could help it and the smell gross!
