I didn't expect this!

When I started using cloth nappies I was very proud! But when I tell people I am using cloth I get funny looks, comments like "yuck" "Oooer your brave, I couldn't do that" and "WHY?!? That sounds gross" Is it just me who has this reaction?! It's starting to do my head in! :x

NO, i think it is quite a usual reaction from people :x

Most people can't unsterstand why you would want to give yourself more washing when disposables are "so easy". They are not interested in the landfill or chemical nasty issues with sposies :shock:

I have had comments about how disgusting it is that I put dirty nappies in my washing machine.... I have replied in the past "Most of the poo is tipped down the toilet so in the end it's only like washing your poo skiddy knickers...." :wink:

:roll: yep, think most of us get that.
"ooh your brave" "I couldn't be bothered with all that" " doesn't your house smell" "yuck, all that poo" etc etc Fine just put chemical filled disposables next to you baby skin all day every day (I don think disposable have a time and a place on occasion)

Never mind that when the sposie leaks, you are gonna get more washing anyway. So nappies or clothes, all ends up pretty much the same anyway ;)
