The Real Diaper Association (RDA) recently conducted a survey on the use of cloth diapers in the daycare setting. There were many parents that participated in the survey and the results varied greatly.
Many of you have heard of or experienced the difficulty in finding a daycare that would take a child in cloth. I have a local customer who's daycare does not allow cloth and another local customer that has found one that will use cloth. The daycare facility (that accepts cloth) only has a few requirements. One of the requirements are that they can only bring pocket diapers, already prepped with an insert and a pail liner that closes (she has a drawstring pail liner). Easy peasy for both parties involved.
I really don't understand the reservations that many daycare providers have concerning cloth....if they only knew what a blessing it is for the parents and the child-using cloth diapers are important to many families. I hope that through the education of daycare providers and advocates like the RDA, we will see more acceptance of cloth diapering families in daycare's and people in general!
Here is the link to the RDA's survey results.
I posted a survey of my own on the sidebar and would love to hear your experiences and comments as well.
