Re: Religious Symbols on Diapers...right or wrong?

What symbols are on the diaper? Chanukah symbols are usually dreidels, menorot, etc. I don't think I'd like to see Torah scripture on anyone's bottom, but I would think dreidels were adorable.

It has little gold menorahs and star of david...I wouldn't buy something with scripture on it either.

Although we don't use religious symbols and I wouldn't say anything I don't think it would be appropriate. It just seems disrespectful somehow.

Re: Religious Symbols on Diapers...right or wrong?

It's kind of like American flag designs...... but you see those diapers around too. So I think it is a personal comfort level.

It has more to do with your intent I wouldn't worry about it offending other people. If they act offended ask why they're staring at your baby's butt lol!

I got a Rudolph diaper instead

I wouldn't have my baby wear it to the religious ceremony, but wouldn't hesitate to buy it for myself - for home, friends, and other outings.

I think it is important to respect the people at your church (synagogue? sorry I don't know the term) knowing full well there will be people there who are very serious about being proper or orthodox. Of course, as humans living in America, we have the RIGHT to do whatever we want, but that doesn't mean we should. In this case, at the church, I would err on the side of respectful.....

I think you are overthinking this.

I have seen dipes with a team on the outside and a rival on the inside ...as an example LOL
Haha! I've seen this too! Those are really funny!

OP if YOU like it then do it. I would if I wanted a religious diaper. People get all weird about everything anyway.
