Do all Breastfeeding moms cloth diaper?
January 12, 2013 at 1:35 AM

I went to the store with a friend and she asked me arent you going to get diapers? I said no I use cloth, she replied oh yeah you breastfeed, I should have known you use cloth. Huh?? So is it just a hand in hand thing to Bfeed & cloth diaper? 

Do you use cloth diapers?

    No, I didn't use cloth diapers.  lol

    Are you "crunchy" in a lot of ways?  Maybe she's just getting that impression?

    Haha! I used to use cloth, but can't right now. It has absolutely nothing to do with breastfeeding though. I also know moms who formula feed and use cloth.

    Its funny I dont even know what "crunchy" means, I EBF because its a no brainer, but I use cloth because I dont see myself throwing $$$ away. Not that I dont care about the enviroment, I just dont see how that would make that much of a diff.

    I do both. I use a lot of cloth because paper towels and other throw away items get to be quite wasteful and expensive.

    Yeah, I couldn't imagine doing all that laundry.  And with all the laundry I'd be doing, not sure it would help the environment.  I get environmentally friendly ones, and I flush the turds I can flush.  I'd also babysat a few babies who used cloth diapers, and I just hated the experience.  Their clothing ALWAYS got wet.  So I'd have to wash their diapers, their clothing, and whatever they happened to be siting on.  3 different brands, 3 different messy wet babies.  Though, none of them ever got a diaper rash.

    Crunchy just means "natural."  Like EBF, cloth diapers, baby wearing, only ever using homeopathic things, only feeding the baby organic foods when they start solids, etc.  It can mean different things to different people, but those are ones I see often.

    I am thinking about cloth diapering, but up to this point, I haven't.

    I think people associate breastfeeding with women who are more natural minded. And many natural minded women cloth diaper. I'm not saying it's a good assumption, but I get it.
