Wow, so Pampers is really feeling threatened by the tiny proportion of parents who are choosing cloth diapers, huh. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

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 <i>never</i> had a rash.<br><br>
How can you group a regular cloth diaper with using nothing?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/nono02.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Nono02">

I laughed so hard at this:<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">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.</td>

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.<br><br>
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.

I think only someone very uneducated or in serious denial would believe those "facts and myths" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> Way to insult the intelligence of your consumers, P&G!

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.<br><br>
Anyone want to start an uproar? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

China might also have parents doing EC...so a thin cloth diaper would be appropriate for that.<br><br>
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!!!!<br><br>
Expecting number #2 this summer, and I relish the thought that I don't have to buy ANY diapers this time around... hahahahahaha!
