You really would think that we were all a generation of immobile children who have hardly and skin on our bums as the ammonia has burnt it all away! I was born (1976 for the record) with clicky hips and the Dr told my Mum to put me in 2 nappies for extra hip support. If she hadnt perhaps I would have had a problem walking! As for washing...very time consuming. All the time it takes me to drag the nappies down to the stream and beat them clean with a stone :roll: Oh hang on, I just bung them in the machine, silly me.

You mean you DON'T have to beat nappies with a stone to get them clean? Man I feel stoopid now!

I can't believe the extract from her book - surely anyone with half a brain would see how outdated and ridiculous it is!

LMAO
you can only laugh, otherwise that little bit of maddening anger starts to seep in. I know that the midwives I worked with all hated her, i made the mistake of picking up her book off the shelf in front of them when i had no idea who she was ( it should have stayed that way), they all started complaining bitterly, its scary that people would take her seriously
