I can't believe the SMELL! OMG! I haven't put a sposie on Joe in over 7 months now, and after sitting for my nephews yesterday I know I will NEVER EVER put another one on him again! I don't care if I am wrapping him in our old t-shirts. Or letting him PEE on the FLOOR! LOL<br><br>
I have gotten SO used to the cloth diapers, the smell about knocked me over when my DH changed my nephew. This kid's poop didn't smell any worse than a normal kids poop, it was the DIAPER that made it SO much worse! UGH My DH actually gagged and almost threw up while changing him. After he dumped the poop (with tears in eyes) and double zip locked it and placed it WAY outside in the garbage, he said "OMG I am so glad we use cloth!" LOL Why is it that people that use disposables that haven't ever used cloth, don't smell it? I never noticed it being SO bad with my first two (all sposied <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">) but I hated changing poops then too, now it doesn't even phase me, NOW I know why! UGH She uses the cheapo sposies too, not the heavy perfumed ones but still yuck!<br><br>
My Dh was so cute, he was putting the clean sposie on the baby and said "I feel so bad putting this on his butt, I wouldn't that nasty scratchy thing on me!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I told him, put him in cloth we will change him when his mom comes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> He thought he better not, he was worried we would forget and lose a good diaper! (maybe his mom would have noticed the difference and switched, it would be worth losing a good diaper!)<br><br>
I have talked myself blue about cloth, and babywearing, and breastfeeding to her, she just says "no not for me" which is fine, but she still thinks there is no benifit to these things (including breastfeeding, she sent me the Real simple story...) she also lets people smoke around her kids "big deal it isn't like the kids are smoking...." UGH so it won't change anything I am sure, but I do feel I have totally made the right choice, when I see my happy, secure, polite, non-violent, very verbal, securely attached kids play with hers (my three are about the same age as her three) it is very sad to see how parenting can really effect kids SO much....not just the diapers, but man how does she change that every day and not throw up? LOL

I switched to all cloth on trips, which was our Final Frontier, about 3 months ago. We visit my mother once a month and had been using sposies when we were down there. Since then I have had the opportunity to change my friend's dd in sposies and EWWWWW! Stinky! I am lucky though, whenever she changes at my house, she puts cloth on the babe! I have some old Kooshies hanging around just for them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">.

'Sposies really are stinky, aren't they?! We could always tell when ds was wet just by the smell. We switched to cloth when he was 8 months old.<br><br>
Have you ever noticed that 'sposie users give you that LOOK when you use the "finger in the leghole" method to check for a wet diaper? How else are you going to tell? Cloth doesn't stink!

My nice who is a year older than DD was poopie and her dad said "I think Rainey is poopie" I said "no she isn't- is it Aubrey. Rainey's poops dont stink" and I ment it! I hate the way sposies smell and unless you have ever used cloth you would never know the differance. Those poor poor baby- I am also with you on never will my baby use sposies. I was lucky I CD from birth so she has never had a sposie but that is because I have seen sposies on my niece and nephew and said no way would that crap be on my baby. I try to chage people- but with family they think I am just a <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hippie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hippie"> nut- but I am so I guess that is okay! At least I have a very secure baby with a very healthy butt and body not chemicals leaking in her skin from all those sposies. Can you imagine all that leaking into their bodies over 2-4 years---- YUCK :puke
