Who agrees with me. Welfare related.

IF a woman on welfare gets pregnant, I think she should have to try breastfeeding before being offered formula
I also think that she should be given a 150.00 voulcher to buy a cloth diaper supply so she doesnt have to endlessly spend her welfare money on diapers.

just like they have to wash their clothes daily?
and you can wash cloth diapers with Tide Original powder
the small five dollar box could probably last you six months because you have to use so little detergent to wash them

Quoting armywife-aly:

You still have to wash them daily, and use certian laundry detergents. As i said, not a lot of people would take the time to do it. They would spend the $150 on cloth diapers, use them as burp cloths and still buy disposable diapers. 


Quoting Anonymous:

breastfed poop is completely water soluble. as long as the infant in ebf there is no need to even touch the poop



Quoting armywife-aly:

I think everyone should try to breastfeed, but that is just my opinion. I am not pushy about it at all. Cleaning cloth diapers is a lot of work, and a lot of people will not mess with it.

No. Because no one should be forced to even try something they don't want to do.

i just feel we should get rid of all pa and welfare all together.

And cloth diapering entails more then just the diapers. Special laundry detergent, more wash cycles, special diaper rash cream.

If they have to go to the laundry mat then cloth diapering is feasible.

they dont but I figure if they have more diapers- it will be a bigger rotation so they wont get worn out so easy

Quoting Anonymous:

Well if they're on welfare, why do they deserve variety?




Quoting Anonymous:

it would buy a very nice supply. a supply with variety too.





Quoting Anonymous:

I think a $150.00 voucher is a lot of money for cloth diapers, I cloth diapered all 3 of my kids and probably on spent $30.00 at the most.

I guess if a woman is on welfare & gets pregnant to me she'd get her wages cut.

What if she doesn't have a washer and dryer at home? Having lived in an apartment in the past, laundry is REALLY expensive when you have to pay for it by the load.

they have to pay to wash their clothes dont they?
paying for a few more loads of laundry a month is cheaper than diapers

It is when it's 5+ dollars to wash and dry clothes. Not everyone has a washer and dryer at the ready. Is welfare going to provide money to pay to use the washer and dryers, too?


Quoting Liyoness:

Yeah, starting a washing machine is really difficult and time consuming.

What about people who use it while they are getting an education so that they don't have to work two jobs for the rest of their lives?

 Exactly because the cost of formula provided by WIC is really what's ruining this economy.
