When I originally mentioned that I'd like to use cloth to DP I expected a kind of "meh :? " response and some discussion of how it was hard work and dirty, amazingly I got an immediate "Yep, fantastic idea" type of answer, I was thrilled! :lol:

I always ask 'I can't understand what you think is hard about filling the washing machine and turning it on?' Or 'So what on earth did you find difficult about washing nappies then?' - at which they say 'oh no I've never done it' so obviously one can then disple the myths of it being hard work :lol:

i also ask people whether they would like to wear paper knickers...i have yet to meet anyone who did!

and tell them that i switched to cloth cos i was fed up of all the leaks and extra laundry....

they just look confused.

I mostly get responses of 'YEUCH!' 'you're not still doing that are you?' I'm not really sure what is 'yeuch' about cloth? It's more yeuch having a bin full of sposies that stink because the bin men only come once a fortnight. It's even more yeuch when my neighbours put out their bin overloaded with waste because they have 2 in sposies! Really, I don't think people have got an excuse!

I've not really had any negative comments, my Grandmother loves them and I have to get them out to show her friends when they come round :roll: . My mother's not too keen on them though.

My baby isn't due for a few months yet, but i decided straight away i was going to use cloth, but soo many people think i'm mad!

My husband, parents and sister are all in favour of it, but the In-Laws are shocked and think its strange! I showed MIL a bumgenius nappy - and she said it was good - but didn't think i'd be able to keep up with it! :?: I hate the idea of dispo's so know i'll keep up with it, and people at work definitely think i'm mad! and they aren't interested in listening when you try to explain to them that its not just a terry square any more!

DP's Grandma was thrilled to bits too, she thought it was great. She's about 90, a farmer all her life and is disgusted by the waste in modern life that people think nothing of.
