YEA - and maybe they can ban pampers too - have been tangled in them whilst swimming on an otherwise nice beach in the area. (Venezuela, not Belize!!)
Ew .....

Until you have been a mother that has to wash cloth diapers every day for a year you can't truly appreciate the value of pampers. But absolutely they shouldn't end up in the sea. I see them all wadded up and left on the beach after parties all the time. It's so gross. It takes 2 seconds to put a diaper in a plastic or paper bag so you can take it to a garbage receptacle.

I am a mother that washed cloth diapers for two babies. No big deal!
Also, I didn't use rubber pants over the diapers. My babies never had heat rash either. With cloth diapers you change them as soon as they are wet. Toddlers don't like being wet and toilet train early.

I took the babies camping while still in diapers and washed and dried them at camp. The women of La Leche League taught me how to fold them so they fit like panties and there was no leakage around the legs. When paper diapers came out they used that folded style.

I see babies walking around with soiled pamper type diapers way to much and the disposal problem is a big one.

Glad you managed to survive the cloth diaper era.

I did the cloth diapers for a year. The soaking, the boiling, the washing, the freezing on the washing line, chasing off the sheep that tried to eat them when they were on the line, the black coal dust making them dirty again before the kid had a chance to wear them - sheesh. Nah I didn't use the plastic pants - those are horrible. The next 2 kids had pampers!
