Many people (mainly men) tell me disposable nappy waste is an inevitable consequence of feminism.  I tell them I went back to work when my second child was 8 months.  I took cotton prefolds into the nursery every day and took them home to be washed at the end of the day.  My husband (were we married then?) helped put them in the washing machine, hung them out and folded them when dry to be used again.  By the way we lived in a small London flat with no garden but with a balcony.

But how about you?  Was/is your child’s nursery happy to change your baby/toddler into a reusable?

Please tell us your experiences so we can share the crowd knowledge.

Thank you!
