Support For Cloth Diapering

If you're thinking about using cloth diapers, or have decided to already; you have probably started telling others about your decision. Finding support for cloth diapering, can be more difficult than you might think. Many people will try talking you out of it or try to discourage using them with negative comments towards them. It's important to remember that most people speaking negatively about them have never actually used them before, so take what they say with a grain a salt.

Don't get discouraged

If you're having a difficult time finding support from others, do not let it discourage your decision! Remember, this is your baby and your decision; just because others 'disapprove' doesn't mean you have to change your mind about it. If they choose not to use them, that’s their decision and will not effect you, so you using cloth will not effect them either. When, and if someone starts speaking negatively about using cloth diapers, simply tell them that you have made your decision and that you would like some respect and support, if possible, for that decision. Most people will understand and lay off with their comments. If not than I would try to avoid discussing anything to do with cloth diapering to them.

Why others might think negatively

When you first thought about cloth diapers, maybe before you even decided to use them, what first came to your mind? I'll bet you thought of the old fashion diapers with the safety pins. Am I right?

When you mention to others about your choice to use cloth diapers, it's more than likely that is the very first thought that comes to mind for them! They probably link this thought with dreaded stories they heard from their parents or grandparents, about how much more work they had to put in because of using cloth diapers, back in their day. For many, little to no knowledge is known about the more modern, easier to use cloth diapers.

Educate them

For those that don't know about the more modern cloth diapers, this could be your chance to educate them about them. Let them know how times have changed, and how much easier they are to use now! If they have a baby or are planning to, it might help them make their own decision about what they would like to use. Of course, don't try pushing cloth diapers on them; you don't want people pushing disposables on you, but let them know what’s out there and that they have choices!

Where can you get support if you need it

If you have little luck getting the support you want from family or friends, see if maybe your community has groups for parents that use cloth diapers, if not maybe you could start your own group. Another solution could be to go on online parenting forums. Almost always, they will have a section for the parents that use them to have discussions about whatever!

Why support is important

To some, it might seem silly that you would want or need support for something like using cloth diapers. Like anything else we do in life, it is nice to have support.

Using cloth diapers, you are continuously learning as time goes on. You will learn what diapers you like more over others, what washing routine works best for you etc…These things might change a few times the longer your baby uses them. Support from others can help encourage you to keep going until you find what works for you best.
