    I was told by my aunt that it is bad for my baby and if I cared about her health I would use disposables… i actually didnt know whether to laugh at her or get angry

  17. Angela H replied:

    That I would not want to clean the diapers and it would be easy to use disposable ones instead

  24. Nicole replied:

  25. Jessica replied:

    It’s old-fashioned… (which to me is a compliment!)

  26. Madeline replied:

    My friends have been pretty supportive (although I’m the only one doing it) but most make comments about dealing with poop. I tell them they are supposed to dump the poop from their disposables, too, and they are shocked!

    That all my clothes will smell like poop if we put dirty dipes in our washer!

  34. Melissa Phinney replied:

    I was called an inconsiderate good for nothing mom and a dirty hippie for cloth diapering my daughter…I feel sorry for that person’s kids and her ignorance.

  35. Mariah replied:

    I am tired of hearing about how much work it will be and how I won’t be able to handle it. And this is usually from people who have never CDed in their lives! Just so frustrating!

  36. Krystine replied:

    That we are really cheap.

  37. Crystal replied:

    yeah, we’ll see how long that lasts…hehum..9 months later and never have I thought of quitting!

  38. Val replied:

  39. Tracy replied:

    My MIL said “We’ll see how long that lasts.”

  49. jennifer p replied:


  50. Lisa B replied:

    While still pregnant, I was told, “Trust me, it’s nasty, you don’t want to do it.” I don’t think I’ve had much unfriendly since I’ve actually been diapering! =)

  51. PN replied:

    why would ANYONE want to use cloth, especially on 3 kids at a time?

  52. Meredith Miller replied:

    I have heard a bunch, the most off-putting was that they would make my whole house smell bad.

  53. MalinaDock replied:

    Someone told me I must smell like poo since I wash my dipes in with everything else. They were online. How would they know???

  54. Sarah G. replied:

    “I don’t know of anybody who started CDing to save money and actually stuck with it.”

  55. Lisa A replied:

    “That will never work! There are disposables now, why go back in time?” Gosh, I was angry at that one!!

    “I bought you some disposables so you don’t have to deal with it.”

  61. Therese replied:

    “you put poop in your washer?”

  62. Heather Moore replied:

    I had a day care tell me that I should reconsider because it wasn’t safe/sanitary for my baby. Needless to say we didn’t go with them — and now I’m staying at home anyway πŸ™‚

  63. Janessa Solem replied:

    That’s unsanitary!

  64. SharpieB replied:

    that cleaning up the newborn poop will be horrible

  65. Katherine replied:

    “What is wrong with you?! Why would you want to do that?!” Well, since you asked, pull up a chair and I’ll educate you about it!

  66. kristen replied:

    Those thick diapers most be so uncomfortable!!! Made me laugh really hard.

  67. Donna replied:

    How can you make your poor baby suffer in those big, smelly diapers?

  68. Laura B. replied:

    My cousin (who has a daughter 7 months younger than mine) asked if I was going to haul our CD’s to the laundromat every time I needed to wash them. She found it disgusting that we would wash our baby’s diapers in our own washer and dryer. Needless to say this upset me, especially at 9 months pregnant!

  69. Tammy replied:

    It’s gross, and you wont have time to clean them. I don’t like touching poop ( roll eyes)

  70. Jen replied:

    I mostly just get surprise and then plenty of questions about what “the new cloth diapers” are like.

  71. Chelsey replied:

    “If you want to wear poop on your clothes, go ahead.” C’mon!! Do a little research people.

  72. Hillary Westbrook replied:


  73. Phillip replied:

    That is is gross

  74. Sally Clark replied:

    You can afford disposables, why would you do that???

  75. Jess replied:

    “That is so disgusting.”

  76. Natalie replied:

    That they were taking bets on how long I would do it.

  78. Sascha Wagner replied:

    Isn’t that gross?

  79. Jamie replied:

    “That will never work.” *sneer sneer* HAHAHA, I showed you, now didn’t I!!! (Okay, so I’m a little bitter about it) πŸ˜‰

  80. Ellie replied:

    In regards to using a diaper sprayer, “That is just gross!”

  81. Kara replied:

    Luckily, I haven’t had any negative comments towards cloth diapering, but I have heard some day cares say that they are not sanitary!

  82. eryn replied:

    i hope you don’t expect me to do that if I babysit…I will send your child back in a disposable.

    oh well one person who will not be minding my little girl!

  83. Robin replied:

    “Seriously, you touch poop?”

  84. Amy replied:

    Yes, many comments about disposing of poop and how gross that must be.

  85. Adelaida replied:

    “That’s so gross. What do you do with the poop?”

  86. Rebecca S. replied:

    “I give you two months tops!”

  87. Catharine Bushman replied:

    I received gift cards from my co-workers who tried to politely say they were for… when we changed our mind!

  88. Erika F-P replied:

    My sister got upset at the beach this summer when she realized I had been washing the cloth diapers in the washing machine. She didn’t want to wash her clothes in the same machine.

  89. Nicole replied:

    I was told my house must be dirty and stink b/c I use cloth (and put ‘poo’ in my washing machine)

  90. Tamara Sz replied:

    Referring to washing the poop of in the toilet–

    “It’s gross”

  91. Jennifer Repetto replied:

    I haven’t gotten any really bad comments. Most people are really supportive and think our diapers are adorable πŸ™‚

  92. kristen huss replied:

    My sister said yesterday…”Ugh, you have to draw the line SOMEwhere…” don’t even know what she meant, although it was when I was changing dd’s dipe!

  93. Kara C. replied:

    “It’s unsanitary – that’s why we dont allow cloth diapers” – military day care centers

  94. Tiffany replied:

    “My husband would never let poop go in our washing machine.”

  95. Sara replied:

    The typical “What do you do when she poops?’ and “Do YOU wash them?!”

  96. Sara replied:

    That using cloth is disgusting.

  97. Jessie H replied:

    “You don’t have kids do you? You won’t stick with it.” Random stranger at Target!! I wish I would run into her again πŸ˜‰

  98. Michele replied:

    I haven’t yet cloth diapered, but am planning to. I’m bracing myself for the comments. Hoping that they are not too harsh.

  99. Allison replied:

    “Yuck. I could never do it” and tons of odd looks. Silly people. If they TRIED it they’d be in love:)

  100. Julie replied:

    eww…how will you disinfect your washer?

  101. Amy ashlock replied:

    I’ve been told that it disgusting and no different than letting my daughter poop in her pants…

  102. Christy replied:

    My husband said it was disgusting and wanted no part of it. …the other day he was explaining to his friend how we use cloth diapers and its so much better for the baby. lol!

  103. Jennifer L replied:

    So complicated and messy

  104. Carrie replied:

    “…but you have to deal with all that poop!”

  105. Jamie replied:

    Why are you wasting your time with cloth diapering? Disposables are so much easier and it’s more comfortable for the baby.

  106. Betsy replied:

    “gross, you realize that you’ll have to touch poo, right? It will probably clog up you washing machine!”

  107. Tracy replied:

    That I would never stick with it, and “eewww”

  108. Jannell replied:

    “ew I don’t want poop in my washing machine.” I just kind of had to laugh at that. It’s a WASHING machine.

  109. Patricia replied:

    I’ve gotten quite a few::
    1) it’s nasty and smelly!
    2) it leaves poo in the washer
    3) they would never, in a million years, cloth diaper!!
    4) my mom calls CD’ing a poopy (i’m filling in a bad word there!) job!
    5) added laundry is a bummer!

  110. Adrian B replied:

    My mom told me it was disgusting that I don’t even rinse off the diapers before throwing them in the washer (my son is EBF).

  111. Beth replied:

    That it’s too much work.

  112. Christina replied:

    “What do you do with the poop?” That’s usually what I am asked.

  113. Michelle replied:

    eeewwwww… and then you wash your OTHER clothes in there??????????????

  114. Shaunna B. replied:

    How much work it is! Not really. One extra load every other day. And they look so cute hanging on the line in the sun!

  115. Kate C replied:

    How much work cloth diapering is and how gross it is washing them.

  116. shannon fitzpatrick replied:

    I was told by a nurse in the nicu it was “unsanitary” as it didn’t wick away the poop. Because a sposie has a black hole that magically wisks away poo haha

  117. Jeremy Laurin replied:

    Time consuming

  118. Kendra replied:

    What about the poop in your washing machine?

  119. Kristina replied:

    After washing out “E’s” poopy diaper I know that I will never do cloth diapers!

  120. Jessica Foster replied:

    I’d say the worst would be everyone saying that I would quit as soon as I realized how much laundry was involved. Got a lot of “Good luck with that” sarcastic remarks as well. 😦

  121. Jen Scaggs replied:

    Hmm… haven’t really gotten any bad comments. A lot of people don’t really understand it, but it’s not too bad.

  122. Kelli replied:

    Your washing machine will be full of poop!

  123. Lori replied:

    Oh, that’s disgusting to handle poop like that. (Yeah, cause you throw yours away IN the diaper and it sits in your trash and then a landfill forevahhhhh).

  124. merritt replied:

    It’s not worth the time or hassle to do the laundry and clean out poop, according to those who are not informed, at least.

  125. Sarah replied:

    “Disgusting…who wants to clean that up!” (I do!)

  126. bECCA replied:

    WHY are you doing THAT?!

  127. Aubrey G replied:

    “I don’t want to hold him if he is wearing one of THOSE diapers”

    Rude! That was my sister too, rude!

  128. Lenore replied:

    Several people asked if it’s really ok to wash diapers and then wash clothes – like the poop just hangs around in the washer.

  129. Shoshana replied:

    “I am not about to dunk a poopy diaper in my toilet” to which I responded “and I never have either!”

  130. Jessica Rabbitt replied:

    What do you do with the poop? Gross!

  131. Cyndi replied:

    Screw the environment, why would you care?

  132. Kierra replied:

    Hahahaha! You’ll never last longer than a week…you know you have to TOUCH their poo, don’t you?

  133. Talitha replied:

    “Ewww! You wash them in your own washing machine? There’s going to be poop all over everything!”

  134. Amanda O. replied:

    Not so much a comment, but the looks from my mother-in-law before she knew how cloth diapers are now (she’s a convert now that she’s experienced them)

  135. Linnea replied:

    “That’s gross”

  136. Brooke P replied:

    No comments, but some people seem shocked that I cloth diaper!

  137. brian replied:

    How inconvenient!

  138. Cari C. replied:

    I was told by my sister “I wouldn’t recommend that. They don’t ever get really clean.” Good thing she doesn’t do my laundry – I get everything clean!!!

  139. Jessica replied:

    Why would you want to wash diapers when you can just throw them away???

    :eyeroll: Umm gee, cuz I’d like to NOT fill landfills and/or put chemicals on my baby’s gentlest parts, thanks.

  140. Yuri Y. replied:

    all the negative comments have been about how we handle the poop! *GASP* POOP!

  141. Lindsey Y replied:

    You are going to cloth diaper a newborn? They pee so much, just use disposables.

    From my dear mother, on my second baby. Ack/!

  142. Diaper Dad replied:

    Poop in the washing machine is the big one.

  143. Autum Lynn replied:

    It sucks to have to was poo diapers in my machine

  144. Brian replied:

    I hate when people look at you like you are dirt poor.

  145. Hallie replied:

    Someone once called cloth diapering “pretentious” though she wasn’t aware that my baby was wearing cloth diapers.

  146. Shane replied:

    They are unsanitary

  147. Katie - replied:

    I had someone fake a really dramatic “gag” hahahahaha! I literally just laughed at her!

  148. Jill Morris replied:

    No one cloth diapers anymore!

  149. Michelle S replied:

    With a wrinkled nose…Oh you do that?

  150. Terran replied:

    It’s worth the cost of disposables to not have to deal with poop!

  151. Kimberlie Tiegen replied:

    Your whole house is gonna stink!

  152. Tori replied:

    I’ve gotten mostly positive comments, but I guess I have had a few people comment on how gross it is to put the diapers in the washing machine.

  153. Jennifer replied:

    That it would make my washing machine unsanitary and I should bleach the heck out of it after every load of diapers.

  154. Jessica A replied:

    I actually have a lot of support. The worst comment was from my SO that it was “stupid looking” but now he changes and has even folded/stuffed diapers πŸ™‚

  155. Abbie Neary replied:

    I just have gotten sone funny looks and Whys when I tell people how excited I am once baby is born to get some cute cloth diapers on Peanut. I try to explain how economical and more healthy for baby it will be.

  156. Tiffany Williams replied:

    Eww don’t people who use cloth diapers get poop on their clothes

  157. Aimee replied:

    Asking me to repeat myself about three times (Yes, I said we use cloth diapers!) while giving me a look of disbelief.

  158. BrassyDel replied:

    One friend thought it was disgusting to reuse something that had been pooped on.

  159. Peter replied:

    I haven’t had too many negative comments, mostly confusion about why one would use cloth when there are disposable diapers.

  160. Noelle replied:

    I don’t think I’ve had any, actually! Not to my face anyway πŸ™‚

  161. Kristen Hackney-Redman replied:

    It’s too much laundry./

  162. Julie replied:

    Someone commented to me that they wouldn’t consider cloth diapers because she wanted to be able to “medicate” her child, meaning “use ointment.” I tried to explain about using a simple barrier, but it went in one ear and out the other.

  163. Jenn S replied:

    That it must be a lot of extra work

  164. Jodi replied:

    Eww..what do you do with the poop?!!

  165. Jessica Lister replied:

    Oh, the rubber/plastic pants?? Um, No way better than that!

  166. Heather Hudson-Alouf replied:

    “I couldn’t deal with the poop!!”

    I have to say I rarely get aggressive comments…

  167. Jenny replied:

    I think most people who are negative about it are just grossed out that I put pooped-on diapers in my washing machine and then wash clothes in it the next day.

  168. Janae replied:

    definitely the “What do you do with the poop?”

  169. Carrie (DangerousCrayon) replied:

    “Yeah, I wanted to cloth diaper, too. You’ll give up.”

    and then others thinking it’s gross to wash diapers – hello, what do you do when the kid poops and pees and vomits and bleeds all over other things? throw them out? I think not…

  170. Kristin M. replied:

    I haven’t gotten any negative comments. Some people assume we can’t afford disposables though. As my son sits there in his $25 BGE, lol.

  171. Jodi replied:

    I haven’t heard any really negative comments – I think most people just don’t comment if they have negative opinions. My mother, however, thought I was crazy and told me that I’d never stick with it (and here I am 3 years later!)

  172. Sarah Hull replied:

    It wasn’t really a comment, it was more of someone just bursting into laughter when I said I cloth diapered.

  173. Amanda K replied:

    The worst comment was. Someone thought it was gross that I wash poop diapers with my clothes.

  174. Jen K. replied:

    No negative comments – just lots of questions re how to wash poopy diapers.

  175. Lauren replied:

    “There’s no way YOU will be able to keep up with all of that laundry!” Grrrrr…

  176. Cupcake & Baby replied:

    My hubby’s fire dept gives him lots of “Crap”….they’ve tried everything to convince us disposies are cheaper….We aren’t buying it…haha

  177. Jessica Roberson replied:

    “That’s gross and smelly!” Yeah, cuz poop in a paper diaper is not gross and smelly?!

  178. Leah replied:

    “Yuck. Why would you do that? It’s just plain dirty. You put other laundry in the same machine you know!”

  179. Lizz replied:

    You have to touch the poop….LMAO hilarious…

  180. Libby H replied:

    “you’ll change your mind in a few months.” nope!

    libby dot bloom dot hunt at gmail dot com

  181. Mark replied:

    to just wait til we get past the breast milk poo, that we wouldn’t be able to handle cloth diapering because of how icky it would be.

  182. Michelle replied:

    Mostly I’ve gotten positive comments, but a few say that dealing with the poop must be aweful and they could never do it.

  183. Kara W replied:

    I actually haven’t gotten any unfriendly comments about cloth diapering, Everyone I know has been super supportive of the decision, even if they wouldn’t try it themselves. I have gotten questions about washing the poop in the washing machine though.

  184. leasa replied:

    YOu do that in public?!?1

  185. Jessica replied:

    “who has time for that?”
    We use cloth so we have more time on this planet! πŸ˜‰

  186. Natalie Hetrick replied:

    I’ve gotten the “oh that wont last” comment too many times to count.

  187. Dallas Griswold replied:


  188. Andrea replied:

    A friend told me cloth diapering is disgusting and would ruin my washing machine.

  189. Cassandra replied:

    I’ve gotten comments about how it must be disgusting to touch poop all the time.

  190. TammyD replied:

    “That’s disgusting, touching someone else’s poop!! And to then put it in the washing machine, you are polluting our water systems”

  191. Aaron replied:

    I am sure it was something I uttered to my wife when she said we were going to do it.

  192. Patti replied:

    well no one inmy family will do it, my hubby put a swim diaper on the baby today

  193. Lisa H replied:

    “cloth diapers aren’t any better for the environment. The stuff they’re flushing down the toilets is toxic!” LOL- is it different than what you’re flushing?!?

  194. bambi bittner replied:

    i’d have to take 3hrs to wash my diapers

  195. Elisha replied:

    My husband’s coworkers said they’d give us 3 weeks before we gave up… still going strong!

  196. Alisha replied:

    Okay, I admit. I’ve gotten mostly positive comments. Either I’m lucky or they’re just talking behind my back!

  197. Ryan replied:

    My mom refuses to use them because she thinks the concept is gross

  198. Karen replied:

    That’s sooo gross, now way I could do that!

  199. Natalie replied:

    “That’s f-ing nasty.” I said ‘ditto.’

  200. Sammie replied:

    the OMG you actually touch the poop comment…

  201. Laura replied:

    “That must be messy.”

  202. LingerB replied:

    I always hear, its gross anddo i have 2 washing machines, its unsanitary, etc….. thelist goes on and on. We are holding strong at 18 months!

  203. Stephanie replied:

    I hear why would you do that when disposables are much easier. It has to be nasty to clean the poop out of those.

  204. Emilie replied:

    One person didn’t actually say anything, just rolled her eyes and gave me the “yuck face” when I told her that we were planning on switching.

  205. tasha davey replied:

    my sister in law said it was disgusting and that i am crazy for doing it. she said she can barely stand changing a disposable one let alone washing a poopy cloth diaper.

  206. Jennie replied:

    That its too much to deal with

  207. Ryan Benigno replied:

    I was told that our baby would walk late since her diapers are thicker than disposables.

  208. Elizabeth replied:

    My dad thinks we’re nuts for planning to spray down diapers in the toilet first–“What’s wrong with the regular diapers; you dump ’em and forget about ’em!”

  209. Dora B replied:

    “that’s just gross”

  210. Ashley T. replied:

    My mother and sister have both said to me, in a very unpleasant tone, ‘you’re STILL cloth diapering? That’s so gross.’

  211. Sarah replied:

    Probably like most people “that’s gross!” No way I’m touching poop is what I hear quite often!

  212. Isha Tan replied:

    Ewww, that’s so gross that you touch poop and it goes in your washing machine!

  213. Marla replied:

    “Don’t you know that you are putting poop into your washer!?”

  214. Tara replied:

    nothing too bad, just that it’s gross to put them in the washer

    I just couldn’t do that, it’s gross.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but when it comes to kids, there seems to be a whole lot of gross going on. Get over it people LOL

  216. Caitlin replied:

    that’s gross!!!

  217. Lisanne replied:

    I guess I have been pretty lucky. People are usually indifferent or approving.

  218. Nicole replied:

    you put those in your washing machine. ewww. then your other cloths. oh i just could never do that.

  219. keenglund replied:

    Snide cousin: “Yea, you’ll try it until your kid gets big poops, then you’ll definitely quit.” How about supporting someone! Geez.

  220. Karli replied:

    Never got any rude remarks, just a lot of eye brow raising and “you’re crazy” looks.

  221. Heather S. replied:

    Good luck with that or I’ll give you a week!

  222. ryan replied:

    you have to touch pooo?

  223. carly replied:

    we will see how long this lasts

  224. Janelle replied:

    That’s so gross. Why would you put something that had poop in it n your baby.

    Silly people don’t they know we clean diapers?

  225. Elizabeth replied:

    Ew!! Doesn’t it make your washing machine all

  226. Christina Meyer replied:

    I haven’t had many really bad comments, more just funny looks with a question of “why would you do that?”

  227. ann replied:

    How do you wash out the washing machine after putting the diapers in there??

  228. Jessica replied:

    most are positive responses, some say it is a waste of money and want to debate whether it is actually enviro friendly…

  229. jennifer replied:

    That baby’s butt is gonna stay raw and irritated all the time!

  230. Stephanie P. replied:

    “You cloth diaper?” *wrinkles nose*

    I get worse responses when people *cough*my best friend*cough* realize or remember that I use a moon cup and mama cloth instead of tampons.

  231. Nicole Zurcher replied:

    “Why would you ever do that? It’s so disgusting!”

  232. Shane replied:

    You mean you wash your clothes in the same washing machine as all that poop?

  233. Miranda replied:

    I’ve been lucky, no negative comments just a few looks like I might be crazy. lol

  234. Heidi M. replied:

    Why would you want to do that? That’s what they invented disposables for.

  235. Amy replied:

    “ewww– isn’t that a lot of work?”

    (DH regrets not switching until baby #4!)

  236. erin replied:

    um, doesn’t your diaper bag stink like poo? (no, i have a great wetbag!).

  237. Rebecca M. replied:

    I havn’t had any yet, but we have only been doing it for four months.

  238. Maria replied:

    I’ve never received an un-friendly comment honestly, most people IRL don’t know that I CD!

  239. magslove replied:

    I remember how excited I was when disposables came out I can’t imagine someone voluntarily using cloth.

  240. Rachel W replied:

    Someone told me its not environmentally friendly to CD because I waste so much water. Whatever!

    People tell me that I care too much about being green!

  243. Teresa replied:

    “You’re going to cloth diaper? Ummm…yeah good luck with that (insert eye roll here)”. *** Imagine a tone of sarcasm***

    “Ewww…you have to touch those dirty diapers?”

  244. tiffanie replied:

    my grandpa told me “he feels sorry” for my daughter having to wear “those big bulky things” Makes me wanna say i feel sorry for her when you put those crappy chemical infested things on her

  245. Lisa replied:

    I haven’t had any negative comments but a lot of weird looks. The nurse at the pedi was confused when I handed her a BG to balance her scale.

  246. Amy replied:

    Does a bad argument with my BIL, who I normally really like, count? He was pissed that someone in his building washed diapers in the shared machines. Idiot.

  247. sarah replied:

    It was said to me: “You are going to cloth diaper, that’s gross.”

  248. Leah R replied:

    A lot of people get grossed out that I wash my clothes in the same machine as I wash poopy diapers!

  249. Hannah replied:

    “nobody who wants to do cloth because of saving money reasons ever sticks with it…”

  250. Colleen Maurina replied:

    The most ridiculous is someone who said it would hinder his walking – NOT!

  251. Betsy replied:

    It will make it difficult for the kid to walk (from my mom! Who also always asks won’t it smell while standing next to the diaper pail)

  252. April replied:

    From my husband: I don’t want my clothes washed right after you wash diapers. They’ll be covered in poo. 😑

  253. Carrie replied:

    You’re putting that in our washer? Seriously? (from DH!)

  254. Jen replied:

    i have honestly not had negative comments….just questions

  255. Suzie replied:

    Eww! There is poop in your washer?!

  256. jen replied:

    not so much rude, but get the “ohhhhhh” comment a lot. you know…the one where you can just feel the other person judging you.

  257. Krista replied:

    Someone called my husband a granola and he didn’t really like that too much. ha ha.

  258. Stephanie B. replied:

    My husband: I won’t change them because I didn’t want to use cloth, you wanted them you change them

  259. Carlee H replied:

    My mom, upon hearing that we were converting to cloth (as well as cloth wipes) said, “What, are you turning into a hippie now or something?”

  260. Cyndi replied:

    You’re crazy.

  261. Rose replied:

    gross, you put poop in your washing machine?

  262. tearah parker replied:

    “how do you get your clothes clean with all that poop floating around in your washer?”

  263. Kerrie E. replied:

    My Grandmother asked me why in the world I would want to put myself and my babies though all of that work in this day in age! She told me it would not last a week! This was of course before I showed her my dipes she was amazed and very supportive afterward.

  264. kforrest11 replied:

    mostly I just get “isn’t it gross?”

  265. Jamie replied:

    You’re crazy!

  266. Jillian replied:

    gross…that’s disgusting

  267. Pam Koop replied:

    Disgusting to wash clothes after your diapers in the washing machine!

  268. fancygrlnancy replied:

    mostly ok comments, but I have had the ewww what about the poop.. that is gross!

  269. Lauren P replied:

    Nothing too nasty. My mom was worried about poop being left behind in my washing machine and getting on our clothes lol. She implied that when I visit her, she wants me to use sposies. 😦

  270. Heather A. replied:

    “eww, gross!”

  271. Tammy Weiss replied:

    “I would had to see your washing machine.”

  272. Martine replied:

    “they are not better for the environment, they waste water”

  273. laurie replied:

    that its a selfish decesion….

  274. Emily replied:

    gross! you wash it yourself?

  275. Theresa Kauffman replied:

    mostly just people saying they wouldn’t do it because it’s too much work…they don’t really care what I do for my own kids! πŸ™‚

  276. Janet replied:

    My SIL told me that I was ‘very brave’ because cloth diapering is ‘very tough to do’

  277. Krista Myers replied:

    “You do? Really?”

    That’s about the worst! Pretty good, huh?

  278. VirtualM replied:

    the fact that i have to wash them scares most people – my sister in law thinks i’m insane for buying used cloth diapers because there’s nothing worse than sticking your kid in something that someone else has pooped in.

  279. Tiffany replied:

    People think it’s gross to wash poop in the washing machine.

  280. Sarah Sparks replied:

    I don’t get too many negative comments. My SIL so does not get it and is always telling me the best deals on sposies at Costco. I am catching heck for buying a portable hand crank washing machine to take hunting so I can wash my dipes and line dry them when we are up there for 10 days. So I have gotten numerous comments from her, just use sposies they are cheap you can throw them away. So yeah for DD 1st birthday we are asking for cute cloth diapers to add to our ever growing stash, so we will see if she gets us anything cute!

  281. Alissa replied:

    My best friend just said, “really?” with a disgusted look on her face and then told me she could never do that.

  282. Ashley N replied:

    Ewww, you put poop in your washer?

  283. Lisa replied:

    They think that dealing with the poop is really gross.

  284. Chris replied:


  285. Cara replied:

    I have had very few negative comments. The only bad ones were just things like ewwwwww, poop. lol

  286. Nancy D. replied:

    Do you know how digesting that is to wash your dirty diapers in the same machine as your clothes!

  287. Stephanie G replied:

    That’s so gross. I can’t believe you would put a diaper your child pooped in back on them again.

  288. manda2257 replied:

    I was called a hippie yankee. (This is Georgia for you.)

  289. Jessica Shewmake replied:

    “eww thats just gross”, with that stoody face.

  290. Rachel S. replied:

    “You couldn’t pay me to do that.”

  291. Amanda Carrigan replied:

    It’s gross!

  292. Helene replied:

    That I must have a ton of free time.

  293. Jenn L replied:

    “If you can’t afford disposables, you can just tell me and I’ll get you some.”

    I had to laugh, and then show her how much ONE cloth diaper costs and say “it’s not
    because we are poor!” although… It is to save money!

  294. SaraB replied:

    You’re CRAZY

  295. Betty replied:

    That I should stop having kids if I can’t afford “real” diapers

  296. Nancy D. replied:

    That’s too much work especially since it’s not worth handling feces.

  297. Katy Lindhag replied:

    gross and it’s a lot of hard work! Lots of laundry

  298. Kaylene replied:

    “It must be nice to have time for that.”

  299. Victoria replied:

    My bf refuses to change our sons diaper if he is using a cloth because he thinks it is gross and unsanitary.

  300. craftymontanagirl replied:

    My MIL: Oh – you are going to HATE cloth diapers. I’m buying you some disposables.

  301. Kali replied:

    Just yucky & too much work.

  302. sarah replied:

    I haven’t had too much negative feedback. A few people have told me they think it’s gross that I carry poopy diapers around in my diaper bag, even though they can’t see or smell it. And my husband thought it wouldn’t last more than a few weeks. Well it’s been 3 months now and still going strong. He’s a little more optimistic about them now that he’s seen how they work, and that we don’t fork out $$ every month for sposies.

  303. Carli replied:

    “We’ll see how long that lasts.” It’s been 10 months and I wouldn’t do anything else!

  304. shaina replied:

    Just a lot of discouraging, “we tried the first few months then switched to disposables.” Kind of like breastfeeding comments

  305. Michaela T replied:

    I just get a dirty look and eww a lot!

  306. Becka replied:

    That I wouldn’t stick with it. 16 months later and still going strong.

  307. Carly replied:

    I was telling a close friend about how much money you can save by cloth diapering a baby,and she informed me that “If she could not afford disposiable diapers for her baby she should not be having kids”….hummm thats not what I ment..uggg

  308. Andrea M replied:

    MIL – “We went through that so you wouldn’t have to!”

  309. tyler replied:

    someone told me once that it was gross.

  310. Nicole replied:

    you get poop in your washing machine ?

  311. Melissa Bodzioch replied:

    a neighbors husband is just not supportive of it at all and really gives her guff about it including posting things on her FB wall.. it’s pretty tough to watch.. the worst was that he said he thought she would get sick of it and quit after the first week!! but the bottom line is he doesn’t like the poop in the washer! sighhh

  312. Heidi J replied:

    “Are you crazy?”

  313. Katie Stewart replied:

    My husband said it was “Stupid” 😦 Seriously. I’ve tried to ease him into the idea, but he’s still not a big fan…

  314. nesta jessup replied:

    a woman i met would works in a daycare told me they were gross and daycares hated people who just HAD to cloth diaper. i told her it’s a good thing my kids were never gonna go to daycare anyways. πŸ™‚

  315. Lisa V replied:

    A coworker told me it was nasty. And no, I did not ask his opinion.

  316. Jaime replied:

    how can you save money w/the water and electric bill?

  317. jessica browne replied:


  318. natasha replied:

    my stepmom just thought it was so gross…the whole idea….im going to prove her wrong next time i go stay with her haha im going to wash poo poo in HER laundry machine just to get her back haha

  319. Sarah S replied:

    “But… you hate doing laundry.” – My hubby. πŸ™‚
    Everyone (including DH) has been very supportive.

  320. Rachel S replied:

    I would say just that it must be gross dealing with washing the poop.

  321. Hannah Williams replied:

    gross – why would you do that?

  322. serena replied:

    I honestly don’t get too many negative cloth diaper comments. Probably part of living in the SF Bay Area. Thank goodness!

  323. Rachel D replied:

    You’ll never last- all that extra laundry will be too much. And it’ll stink.

  324. Jennie V replied:

    they stink really bad right? And how gross is that to wash in your washing machine!

  325. Kristy replied:

    Do you actually have to touch the poop? That’s so gross

  326. Liliana Montemayor replied:

    Is to much work, I don not think you will do it after a month of trying!!
