It's such a relief to see there are loads of others suffering the same anti-cloth reaction from their mothers, or MIL! My mother, when she was alive, thought all the cute cloth was unique. But MIL is another story. Personally I've griped about it more than once
: in this forum, and every so aften again when something else crops up to pee me off.
Strange for MIL who CD'ed all her 4 kids (with flats, pins and plastic pants, no less), to hate my cloth... but she does. From accusing it of making DS fall over from the weight
to it being too hot, to wool being too uncomfortable, to outright skepticism about its ability to keep him dry, etc. etc. she's used all arguments and will grab the first sposie she sees in proximity, which is why there are NO sposies kept anywhere nearby now!! (the ones we use for vacations are carefully stashed away in a deep dark corner of our closet)
Now she's busy trying to PT him by letting him run around diaperless and trying to get him to sit on the potty every 10 minutes - just to get him out of dipes. At 19 months... yeah, whatever... it's fine by me so long as he doesn't pee my bed.
