I have to say i am v economical and enviromentally freindly when it comes to ironing :oops: :oops: :giggle: I can't even remember where it is!


I know exactly where mine is - in the cupboard :hohoho: I usually hope the creases will drop out as I wear them! So I'm certainly not going to start ironing nappies anytime soon!!

:hohoho: We iron as little as possible here, only those things that actually need it!! Great response too Frances :thumbsup:

This country is full of idiots and that article is like a have your say discussion on the bbc website. The only time I have had negative comments about cloth nappies is by somebody who said she didn't have time for all the washing. Then she would tell us tales of having to change her son's clothes several times a day due to nappy leakage, he could even poo out his nappy, sleepsuit and sleeping bag to mess up his cot sheet and mattress. Not much extra washing because of that then. :roll:

I love this comment

And I suppose an environment agency report would lead us to believe that we should all be wearing throw-away clothes, as, what with all that dreadful washing and drying, it's has just the same impact - and it's so much easier. Plus, think of all the shopping you could do - buying new clothes every week with no additional environmental impact (presuming we all walk to the shops). And on this basis we should all be using paper plates and plastic cutlery too. Once you wash and dry that glass for the umpteenth time, why you may as well use one you can throw away. It makes perfect sense doesn't it?
One never ceases to be amazed at how stupid people can be. I guess it's 'easier'.

Why do people have to get so defensive and personal?

First we had the breast-is-best mafia and now a breed of reusable nappy hitlers have emerged. Yeah yeah yeah, we all have our opinion but at the end of the day we all have a choice and to be honest I was to busy enjoying my baby to concern myself with issues like this. And I didn't fancy being elbow deep in smelly nappies and wasting time over them.

Is there any need for that really?? we are not a breed or 'reusable nappy hitlers' :shock: And whats worse is that people seem to assume that we would rather be 'ellbow deep' in dirty nappies than spending time with our own children :roll:

Would have commented earlier but have been up to my eyeballs in washing pooey nappies in the sink..... :hohoho:

Seriously, who believes we hand wash cloth nappies in this day-n-age? Even my parents didn't need to handwash and look at how much cloth has changed since then :shock:

All I can say is I don't know where they got the idea that 'cloth nappy nazis' are ramming the idea down peoples' throats. When I chose to change to cloth it was my own decision as I don't know anyone else who uses them and have never seen anyone else using them in changing rooms when out-n-about.

As for ironing them. I with everyone else. I can't be bothered to iron my own stuff unless its in dire need so why would I want to iron my nappies :shock: :shock: :shock:
