Got a good chuckle at the idea in there that disposable diapers keep babies and parents from being awoken in the night. As if.

Wow, so Pampers is really feeling threatened by the tiny proportion of parents who are choosing cloth diapers, huh.

Sick to my stomach to think that someone researching what diapers to use would be unlucky enough to run across that load of lies....

DD's been in cloth diapers since birth, and she has never had a rash.

How can you group a regular cloth diaper with using nothing??

I laughed so hard at this:

Quote:
In China, for example, we've learned that babies and parents are frequently awakened during the night each time the baby soaks the bed, because the baby has no diaper or a very thin piece of cloth. As a result, studies have shown that a disposable diaper can help a baby there get a better night's sleep.
Really Pampers, you're comparing NOTHING or a THIN PIECE OF CLOTH vs a disposable? Try a bamboo or hemp fitted with well lanolized wool over the top vs a disposable and then we'll talk.

And the part about the study showing cloth is not more environmentally friendly is based on a UK study in which they assumed all CDers wash at 90 degrees, tumble dry 100% of the time, and IRON their CDs.

Did you all hear about the chemical burns being caused by the new pampers. I told my DH last night and he was like, "We are SOOOO not using the Pampers in the hospital!" Yeah I'm ever more unimpressed by Pampers!!

Sadly, there are so many people that will read that on their site and believe it.

Anyone want to start an uproar?

China might also have parents doing EC...so a thin cloth diaper would be appropriate for that.

I'm really surprised that Pampers is this defensive. There can't be that many people cloth-diapering and/or using EC. But, if there is, great!!

I like how they don't even cross the threshold of cost savings, LOL... Yes, CD requires a bit more up front cost (usually, unless you can get your friends to buy you diapers as your shower gifts...) But the long term costs, laundry included, are soooooooooooo much lower!!!!

Expecting number #2 this summer, and I relish the thought that I don't have to buy ANY diapers this time around... hahahahahaha!

RDA is hosting a blog carnival in response to the Pampers page. The idea is to get as much true information out there as possible. If you have a blog consider participating:

Yeah, I put dd in disposables for daycare, etc (7th generation), and that's what gives her a diaper rash! I put her back in cloth fulltime on the weekends, mainly to give her skin a break!
I am truly disgusted that they get away with spouting pure lies. I understand it's advertising, but shouldn't there be some truth??

Hey there, Just wanted to let you know,there is an organization that provides free cloth diapers to low income and qualifying families. Just google 'miracle diapers'. I think you just mail back the diapers when you need to size up, and they send you the next size. you should check it out

I think the Pampers Q&A is hilarious. I mean seriously, it didn't even remotely sound true. Complete and utter propaganda.
