Diapers and Dads

This line of copy is from the bumGenius diapers web site:

bumGenius cloth diapers are designed to make cloth diapering easy for every-day people - like your babysitter, grandparents and even dad!

What the heck is that supposed to mean? I read that sentence thusly: THESE DIAPERS ARE SO EASY TO USE THAT EVEN YOUR STUPID HUSBAND CAN'T FUCK THEM UP!

Anyone else find this pretty offensive? We were leaning toward bumGenius diapers as an alternative to pre-fold diapers while on the road, but now I'm not so sure I want to support that company.

  1. I'd like to say yes. And as a generalization, yes it is offensive. But since Chris isn't able to put a diaper on without Everett peeing all over himself before, during or afterward...umm..uh...I think that ad was meant for me. *grin*

  2. The best way to clean cloth diapers is to pre-rinse them off in the toilet using a Bathroom Bidet Sprayer. So convenient and if you are trying to help the environment (and your pocket book) you can give it a double whammy by virtually eliminating toilet paper use at the same time by using it to clean your tush! Available at www.bathroomsprayers.com they come in an inexpensive kit and can be installed without a plumber. And after using one of these you won't know how you lasted all those years with wadded up handfuls of toilet paper. Now we're talking green and helping the environment without any pain.

  3. Ahahaha, Audrey, that's too funny. My brother Dean was a pee-er. You got his diaper off and it was firehose time, no matter what.
