Camille had her 2 wk check today and the nurses had me get her undressed to her diaper to measure her and then take that off to weigh her.<br><br>
I almost peed myself--the nurse says "If that's wet, you can just throw it in here" (pointing to a trash can!! ) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>
I said, "No it's cloth, I don't think I'll be throwing it away" ---of course thinking to self--why on earth would I toss her cute little Tootsweet dogwood cover!! ??<br><br>
Just guessing the nurse doesn't see many adorable wool covers! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/ROTFLMAO.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rotflmao">

:LOL It's funny how people don't even notice cloth. It's so ingrained in people's mind that cloth is a thing of the past that they assume your baby is in a sposie. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

yeah, the nurse at my ds's ped. made the comment "oh, these are such cute wraps". (ds was wearing a FB) I think she thought it was some sort of cover over a sposie <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

the nurse at our ped. did the same thing. She commented about how cute the cover was, but dd needed to be stripped "down to her pamper" When I told her that was a diaper not a cover, she of course started in with "people still use cloth?"

That's why I usually put DS in his brightest dipe. Like our orange FuzziBunz. There is no way to mistake that for a sposie! :LOL

I had an interesting conversation once with a nurse....<br><br>
Nurse: Oh those are cute shorts she has on!<br><br>
Me: Nope, that's a diaper.<br><br>
Nurse: Oh so that goes over her Pampers?<br><br>
Me: Nope she doesn't wear Pampers, this is her diaper.<br><br>
Nurse: Oh my, fabric diapers?????<br><br>
Me: Yep...<br><br>
Nurse: Oh so what do you do? Do you wash them and use them again?<br><br>
Me: Yep....<br><br>
Nurse: What a cool invention!!! They didn't have diapers like that when MY kids where little!!!<br><br>
I had someone tell me the same thing about a sling once.... a sales lady at a furniture store said "Oh my look at that, that must be something new! They didn't have those when my kids were born!" Of course, I said, "No, these have been around for centuries, in some cultures women have always worn their babies using fabric wraps such as this one"

:LOL That is funny about the slings and cd's being a new invention<br><br>
The nurse who saw Aislyn at her 1 week check up, actually had the nerve to say that they couldnt weigh her in her diaper because the machine was set up for sposies! So she had to put a sposie on her, but feel free to change it back afterward. Oh and she was irritated because she had to use a new diaper and there was no pee in it. She said they are used to weighing them wet. Sorry my baby came clean and in a cloth!

I love how she just assumed.<br><br>
When I first started CD'ing and took Hunter to the ped, these were his words...<br><br>
"GOOD, keep it up!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

When we take Paige for her check-ups the nurses all gather 'round to see what sort of cute dipe she is wearing...she is like a little celebrity at the ped's office! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Not one single person in our doctor's office said anything. It's like they didn't even notice. Oh, well!!

LOL!<br><br>
Same thing at my doctor's - they always think it's a cover for a disposable. My neighbor saw DS in a Toot Sweet print fitted a few days agao and said "Oh, is that a Pull-Up?" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

I get that all the time. People are always telling me what a cute "cover" Holden is wearing. I always make sure to point out that we cloth diaper, that there's no yucky sposie underneath!

The one cool thing about our Dr. is that she cloth diapered her kids. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> She always notices them and coments. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

The first time my ped saw our cloth, he simply said that his wife cded their children with a service years ago. That is it and he has never said a thing since.<br><br>
The nurse said, "I remember you. You are the only one who comes in with the cute, weird diapers."<br><br>
I often get, "So.....you throw this away?" or "You wash these yourself?"

The other comment I get from my dd's ped when he takes off her diaper is "I don't know how to put this fandangled thing back on". I just smile <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

One of the best comments came from our ped. He looked at Ds and said "oh, so you get to wear the good stuff" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
