for those who used cloth diapers

I use a mix of disposable and cloth diapers.

I've noticed that the church nursery and our au pair are both resistant to using the cloth diapers and don't seem to approve of them for some reason. Then they proceed to use up lots of our disposables, changing them even when they are just slightly wet. I do not change diapers every 15 minutes because it uses up too many. (of course, if they've pooped the diaper gets changed right away). I am not sure if anyone else has ever been in the position of having to explain that you don't own a diaper factory.

As for the cloth diapers, one of my twins has a rash now so I am trying to keep her exclusively in a cloth diaper, but can't get much cooperation with this from anyone else who helps me with caretaking.

I am wondering what peoples issues are with not liking to change cloth diapers.

When our nanny, who had originally encouraged us in using cloth diapers, had surgery and I had to put the twins in a home-based day care, there was no question of her being able to use cloth diapers. Then, when she came back, the nanny started doing passive-aggressive things to get us to stop using them -- as if she hadn't encouraged it!

Child care providers are one reason more people don't use cloth diapers. If they have to take care of multiple kiddos, they don't like having to keep track of whose are whose, and they don't like having to store the wet diapers or rinse out the poopy ones. There's really not that much you can do about it unless you pick a provider who is als oa big proponent of cloth diapering.

Take care,

I have a special bag to put the wet diapers in.

Do many daycares have a diaper sprayer to rinse them out? At some point they may have to go in a drop-in daycare from time to time, so I am just curious if they use diaper sprayers.

I used to work as a nurse aide and changed many adult diapers and dealt with poop all the time. I got used to it. Believe me, its much more pleasant and easier to change a baby's diaper than an adult's diaper. With adult diapers, there is a lot more cleaning up to do.

I am pretty antagonistic toward them

but this is my memory of diapers, I haven't used the newer all in ones. Your hands got pee on them. You had to wash them out in the toilet when they had poo on them. You couldn't just throw them away and be done with them. I hope if I were caring for your children I would abide by your wishes but yeah, I hate them.

I don't wash them out in the toilet (I hate toilets). And I don't have a diaper sprayer. So what I do at home, is take them out to the backyard and hose them down. They get very clean right away.

I know some people dip the diaper in the toilet, but that was just too gross for me.

I wouldn't recommend that people leave human waste in their back yards. Not only is it unsanitary, it's also dangerous.
