My husband rocks. No, really. He is a wonderful, attached, gentle, father. He doesn’t just “go along” with my parenting choices but fully embraces them. Our daughter is happy and attached. I couldn’t ask for more.
Well, except I really wish we were cloth diapering.
When I was pregnant and brought it up to him he had the normal “ewwwww” reaction. Since I knew, as a SAHD, he would be changing more diapers than I, I didn’t push. Now it weighs on me. I’m concerned about our environmental footprint. I’m concerned about the chemicals we’re putting against our daughter’s skin. And, honestly I feel that this one thing is very incongruous with our other lifestyle choices.
The problem is we don’t know anyone that cloth diapers. I’ve honestly not even seen a modern cloth diaper close up. Even I’m unsure about the ins and outs of cloth diapering (although I could learn quickly). It just seems so many families not only do it successfully but really prefer it.
Can you help me sway his mind toward cloth? Do you think the issue is worth pursuing now that our baby is over 1 year? Is it better late than never? Or, a moot point and I should just let it go?
