More than merely declaring National Diaper Need Awareness Week, we are acknowledging that diapers are a basic need for infants, toddlers, and those who suffer from incontinence, and that more people are willing to do something about it.
I'm not talking about the normal diaper stuff. I'm talking about bodily discharge in motion, vaguely cannibalistic activities, and microscopic familiarity with our kiddies' anatomies. I'm talking about things that should probably not be memorialized in writing.
Diaper explosions. Spit up stains. Cradle cap. No parent goes into this job without expecting some icky moments but there a few chores that are so frustrating, gross or bizarre that you want to look around for the hidden camera.
My cats or my future baby?: Barf on the floor; Pee on the floor; Has a brain larger than a handful of grapes; Not freak out when I want to dress it in a cute outfit; Not be covered in hair; Love me back.
From our vantage point the choice between cloth and disposable diapers doesn't feel like much of a choice at all. But the facts on disposables will turn your stomach faster than the scent of a freshly filled Huggie.
