stupid misinformed old bag :evil:


I have a few books by her & they are actually quite good ... really disappointed to read that she has published something along these lines as she is one of the best known and trusted authors on the subject of birth, babies etc .. I think we should all write to her formally & complain about the negative slant her book gives & how it is outdated and incorrect.

Does anyone have an address?

Doesn't anyone check her facts for her if she can't do it herself??
Surely her publishers would be a bit gutted to find she just makes stuff up!
And I agree with pp... she MUST have shares in pampers.

I feel quite offended that she's insinuating I am poor :shock:

I'm sick of hearing how cloth nappies make it hard for them to walk. My children were all very very quick walkers and cloth never held any of them back. Kerr was walking at 8 months.

Neither did any of them die from all the bacteria that I wrapped their bums in every day :roll:


Er - neither did any of us!!!!!!! And I was walking at 13 months - in terry squares and plastic pants........my Mum "splashed out" on disposables for a holiday in Cornwall and ended up using the hotel laundry for nappies because they leaked so badly (1968 for anyone who's interested in Modern History!)

:giggle: I was before that - I'm ancient :hohoho:

My eldest is 27 so I used the old fashioned terries and plastic pants back then. I remember taking her out one day and my mum gave me such a row! She had on her nappy and plastic pants, then her vest on top of that and another pair of frilly plastic pants on top. Poor wee sweaty sausage :giggle:

I used a packet of disposable nappies for her first few days but couldn't afford them full time, so I kind of get where MS is coming from there. They cost the same back then for a packet as they do now, around £5. And for comparison, you could buy a whole decent outfit for that price then (from Boots or Next or similar), now you can hardly get a pair of socks for a fiver!!

She's just so out f date it's ridiculous :roll:

Can't believe someone would write, and publish that, as if people aren't narrow minded enough when it comes to cloth as it is!!


I've left mine, so now there are 2 positive & 2 negative ... think more are needed!

On the poor note, my DF's aunt thought we used cloth cos we couldnt afford disposables so bought us 200 huggies size 2 :roll: I gave most of them away as my neighbour was expecting twins and had no interest in using fluff whatsoever. Such a waste of money. I could have had a nice embroidered WN for the price of them!

Also in hospital they asked if I wanted some disposables recently as if we were too poor to afford them :x
