My sister just had a little girl a week ago and everything is going well, except her butt, LOL. I am kinda hoping she is allergic to disposables(or the perfume, whatever) so she will convert, LOL. I asked her if I bought the baby some really cute baby diapers would she use them and she said she doesnt know, which meant NO, LOL. My mom doesnt think it would be a good idea for them, but I think if *I* can do it they can too.<br><br>
Both her husbands mom and our mom cloth diapered us, but both sets of parents are anti-cloth now. WEIRD.<br><br>
How can I convert her without being overbearing?

Buy her a couple and show them how to use them. If she refuses you can sell them. Also, if she refuses and the baby is sensitive to the disposables maybe she'd be okay with using a fleece insert or something?

well she said if the baby is allergic then she would use cloth, but she is hoping the baby isnt allergic.<br><br>
I was thinking about buying her some cute newborn diapers to wear with a matching shirt kinda as a diaper outfit and maybe she would use them then.<br><br>
I was hoping if I could get her to use at least 1 diaper a day she may see how easy it is and switch.

Show off your stash;o) That is, if you have a really great stash! Lean towards the AIOs and try to get the dh involved too. You could tell the dh he could get his favorite sports logos on his childs bum;o) If that doesn't work, tell her about the health risks and how much cheaper it can be! Okay....maybe not cheaper.LOL If all fells tell here: Jesus was cloth diapered! LOL

I think you really should start by finding out what she is opposed to, it is easier to win this fight if you know your enemy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

ok the truth, YES I have LOTS of money sitting in my paypal(I mean enough for a few of MM soakers or even a couple of custom soaker pants!). But I really would like to convert her too.
