I sent Max to his grandparents with 5 flexi-tots and a wrap today and his gran coped fine. I actually felt sorry for her when I went to collect him as he had obviously just done a big smelly poo. The smell was pretty
and she was sat on the floor with a dirty nappy, writhing baby, wet wipes everywhere struggling to get him into a clean nappy. I could almost hear her shouting "why can't I use a sposie"
Bless her. She does seem to be trying so hard.
I was just going to say "but there's hardly any difference between a BG and a sposie" and then it occurred to me that of course the very big difference is that you can't just throw a dirty BG in the bin
. At least she is trying - maybe going through some of the pros of cloth (again, no doubt) would convince her a bit more? A big one for me is that untreated human waste doesn't belong in a landfill leaching into the subsoil, much better in a septic tank or the sewer system!
We don't have any velcro but OH always goes for our pockets (even if Lili's wearing wool
). He's always been behind cloth but I had to
today when I sent Lili out to him in her lovely new aqua sea WN with the big koi carp embroidery and he went "wow, great nappy Lili! it's almost a shame to cover that up!"
