dh brought it to my attention that the <a href="http://www.drudgereport.com/" target="_blank">Drudge Report</a> has a picture with a link to the story under it. The link doesn't work for me, but the title is "China 'Open-Crotch Pants' Face Extinction... "<br><br>
When the link didn't come up, he googled the same phrase as the title and found an interesting article called <a href="http://oz.plymouth.edu/~megp/webct/culturalconflict.htm" target="_blank">The Cultural Conflict Over Toilet Training</a> . Then he asked if I had ever heard of this...lol.<br><br>
I just thought it was so cool to see something about EC in the mainstream media. (well, maybe not super mainstream, but this site is not really an alternative site, just a compilation of all the news from all over the place). We don't EC this one, but I have considered doing it for the next one, but hadn't brought it up to dh yet because it simply wasn't an issue.<br><br>
edited to add: This is a great artilce about the cultural differences in diapering...I really did learn stuff from it and it is a great read. Can't wait to hear responses.<br><br>
dh also pointed out the irony of "Chinese prefolds" being the top prefolds and that they don't wear them there.

Wow, that photo is so cute!<br><br><a href="http://www.drudgereport.com/" target="_blank">http://www.drudgereport.com/</a><br><br>
I'm trying the heraldtribune -- that's where the link points. I get "server too busy" message.<br><br>
I'll keep trying.<br><br>
Have you posted this in the EC forum?<br><br>

I think it's interesting that they are pushing pampers on new mothers 'no matter what the cost' without a thought towards cloth.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

Interesting, yes, but not at all surprising. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
Cloth is not really part of the capitalist thing, right?<br><br>
