This makes me
too. I had no acsess to the internet with my oldest 2 so never knew anything about cloth
I wish I had, but hey, better late than never! I think we should be told more about our options by HVs and stuff.
I was going to say the same. When I was pregnant no one discussed cloth nappies with me at ante natal or hv sessions. I did not recieve any literature on cloth, only pampers and huggies
. I had 1 friend who had used cloth and many more who laughed at the thought, with comments such as 'you will never keep up with it'. I even contacted my local council who sent me a very poor leaflet through on cloth, with no actual info, tips or advice on it.
I am very pleased that I never use disposables and it really upsets me when I think of how many people actually do.
And then I found the tree
For women who dont know anyone who uses cloth, I can completly see why they use disposables. There is not enough publicity and what publicity there is, alot is inaccurate.
Maybe if the nhs/hv/midwives got on board that may be a good start.
