Getting your Partner on board - A Dad's perspective
Updated: Sep 19, 2020
Sometimes one partner can be a bit more "proactive" than another when it comes to cloth nappies, and in my experience, that person was my husband. Sure he loved the idea of cloth, but when it came to the actual logistics, it took a little bit of coaching (read: preaching) to really get him onboard. So to celebrate Father's day this week, I thought we'd interview a few of our favourite Cloth Dads. We've kept it warts and all because we have no doubt that you or your significant other have similar opinions.
1. What's the best thing about Cloth Nappies
Dad One: The best thing about cloth nappies is the cool designs that they come in. As a parent, you can choose a style that suits the day and as your kid gets older they can choose their own styles. Ohh and I guess they are also a lot better for the environment as disposable nappies just go to landfill.
Dad Two: The environmental benefits and the different patterns. Overall they just look better than disposables.
Dad Three: The environmental benefits for sure, plus the cost savings, and I'm not making as many trips out to the garbage, or Coles for that matter.
