Cloth ignorance?

Postby Lynni » Tue Aug 26, 2008 3:46 pm

I'm a member of another forum - Babyexpert and have just been reading a cloth v disposable topic with interest... There is so much negativity surrounding cloth :shock: Too much washing, costly, effort and time, no more environmentally friendly than disposables. Why won't people do the research and see how much better they are? Apparently were known as too posh for pampers :lol:

Not to mention the ones who go out and buy the Mothercare Smart system 'nooooooooo you silly mare, your missing out on so many better nappies!!!!' :evil:

God they wanna wake up and smell the coffee!

I think it is people using disposables trying to justify to themselves that what they are doing is better.
Also I think that until some people get into the routine of cloth, they don't realise how easy it is.

It annoys me to read so many people be so negative.... fair enough if they've tried them and not got on with the system, but how do you know it won't work unless you try?! :roll:

Didn't bother to repy as it's like trying to fit a square peg in a round hole :?

But is it? apparently from the reviews I've seen it works out just as expensive and isn't reliable

I thought it was pricey when i saw it in a store, and complicated, and boring.

we're too poor for p@mp£rs too - but it's nice to be thought of as being to posh for 'em

But you can use the cloth inserts not the disposable ones - why would you go to the bother of buying the outers only to put disposable pads in them, I don't get that?

I don't know anything about the smart nappy form Mothercare, but they now also sell bumgenius, modern baby and bambino mio nappies, although unfortunately they aren't in-store, just online. Shame they aren't actually on the shelves where they might catch a customer's attention...

From talking to friends it's the extra work that puts them off, and until you try you don't realise how little effort it takes in the great big scheme of things. But it's that vicious circle of not trying as you assume it's too much hassle.
