Why on earth do some women seem so obsessed with stains on cloth nappies? It's a nappy for goodness' sake. It's whole purpose in life is to catch poo. Nobody even sees the colour of my baby's mink, never mind the inside.
I recent had a friend who seemed to be suggesting that she was going to give up using cloth because her nappies were getting stained. Like she was somehow doing it wrong, because there were stains. She almost seemed to be suggesting that child had defective poo or something!! What?! I'm bemused.
So tell me, women, why care if your cloth nappy is not pristine gleaming white? Is it some sort of badge of honour? Admittedly I say this as a woman with no particularly stained nappies, (I suspect because they live on the washing line for loooon periods of time before I am bothered to fetch them in). Where is the shame in having nappies that appear to have been used?
