So we had friends over for dinner Sat night. This was dh's old roomate from College and 5 years after college. He was in our wedding. He and his wife are expecting their 1st baby in Feb after 2 rounds of IVF. We like them both a lot, though we haven't seen much of them in the last 4 years (kids, distance between our homes, etc)<br><br>
So we're talking about baby stuff blah blah blah.... and I mentioned that we are CDing this baby. The wife grossed out (how do you wash them, what about diaper rash, what about leaks, eewww). dh starts in about how nice they are, how the don;t take that much time, how much better for baby they are, how bf babies poops aren't a problem, etc..... then he goes into the laundry room and chooses the cutest fitted that was clean, and explains about the snaps, the lay in soaker, the velour, etc. he also goes on spouting the benefits of wool<br><br>
Oh, the husband was totally into it.. but he's a borderline crunchy, outdoorsy, health food eating, recycling save the planet type of guy. I'm thinking about sending him some CD links.... even though his wife repeated to him 3 times, "no, i am NOT doing CD's"!<br><br>
i did also show him 1 fuzzi bunz since those seem the easiest to understand if you think cding means pf's and rubber pants from 30 years ago. i don't want to bombard him with info... but i would like to send him one link. what would you recommend?

Karen's CD page is at <a href="http://www.diaperpages.com" target="_blank">http://www.diaperpages.com</a> and my only less-than-rave about it is that she doesn't say much about pockets, and pockets are often the easiest way for non-cd people to approach CD.<br><br>
And it is perfectly OK for one parent to use cloth and the other sposies.

Diaper Pin has a calculator that is effective for converting people. Once they figure out what the cost of disposibles is for a year, they freak! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> When I tell people that I am using the same 24 diapers(FB) that I bought 15mo ago, and will use them with my next 2, it blows their mind.<br><br><a href="http://www.diaperpin.com/calculator/calculator.asp" target="_blank">http://www.diaperpin.com/calculator/calculator.asp</a>
