CBS Reporter Accepts Cloth Diaper Challenge
More than 360 people commented on the online segment, blasting the journalist for presenting such a one-sided piece in an inaptly titled segment, "The Diaper Wars." Not only did the comments come in, but both Ms. Del Conte-Morris said she was getting heated emails about the topic. That's when Ms. Del Conte-Morris realized she needed to do something about it.
Commendably, she is taking on what she is calling, "The Cloth Diaper Challenge," and will try modern cloth diapers on her baby. She blogged about her acceptance of the challenge here:
She has received hundreds of more comments, this time from supportive moms, along with manufacturers and retailers who all want in on the action (no matter what diaper(s) she tries, we need to support and recognize her efforts!!)
We'll see what Ms. Del Conte-Morris chooses to try and how her experience goes. For good or bad, all we can ask is that moms like Ms. Del Conte-Morris give cloth diapers a try. Trying before forming an opinion is the best way to be an "expert" and present a fair and balanced looked at "the diaper wars." We are thrilled that Ms. Del Conte-Morris is going to try cloth diapers - and become a true expert as "the diaper wars" rage on.
