Nothing like trying to clean up a blow out beside the road or in an aiplane bathroom to totally make you give up sposies.
Oh i know, my middle child is like this. She used to have poop explosions in sposies. On vacation I used covers over her sposies for this very reason. I still loved being able to toss the poo! I've tried using the flushable liners but it seems like she never poops when I use one. And i'm SO cheap that spending money on liners just to be pee'd in kills me. lol

Re: Why do people hate cloth?!

She also hates his amber necklace because she says that I can't control the amount if amber being absorbed into his skin?!

As noted above, this is actually true... and is kinda why (this might be an unpopular opinion), most likely, any "success" seen with amber necklaces is a placebo or coincidental effect. If there were enough succinic acid in amber to have a real effect, the fact that the dosage is completely uncontrolled would/should be a concern. However, there likely is not enough to have a real effect, so it's probably "safe" because it's ineffective.

I'm pretty "crunchy," but almost exclusively because the "crunch" I'm into (homebirth, breastfeeding, EC, etc.) is evidence-based. I don't feel amber teething necklaces are.

I pretty much agree with this post:

I'm always open to new research, but just my 2 cents.

Also just typical mommy wars. Oh you think your cloth diapers are better for your baby than my disposables? Allow me to loudly voice my opinion about how they're not

Re: Why do people hate cloth?!

that is a good question!!! My father insists that he will never EVER change a cloth diaper, he says he's going to buy sposies to use at his house. I don't want my baby in sposies if I can avoid it because DH and I both have eczema.

Yes, but the research won't be done because there is more money to be made in other areas. But yes, I've read that blog post before and do agree with it in principle.

However, as someone who has lived with chronic pain and continues to manage it (without narcotics) by alternative means, I do have to say that pain is still not very well understood by the medical community and that there are things that do work that haven't been verified scientifically. You have to weight the risks, as with anything, for amber beads....They are a choking risk.

Re: Why do people hate cloth?!

I love this thread. We plan to CD when baby is born in April and are so excited to try it. Everyone we tell laughs at us and tells us "just wait til you have to change a poopy diaper." The few people that will actually listen to us explain what cloth is like nowadays are shocked to find out how much easier it has gotten. My mom, though, still is counting on us to quit, which is so disappointing, but also motivating. Now, part of me wants to make sure we are able to do it just to shut others up!

Because it's different and people don't want to be unique and different but are okay with "going with the crowd" or what is "normal" without doing their own research as to what is best for baby, the planet, etc. Plus they are misinformed about modern cloth diapering and assume it is the same as 20 years ago.

People used to think acupuncture and trigger point injections were bunk, but I know first-hand that they are not and they have saved my life.

Ps. some insects use succinic acid and formic acid (very close) to freeze their prey, and we have receptors for, too.
