Anytime I've search for ďadult babyĒ online and I come across articles (which usually bashes us in some form), the most common thing I read is about how we are heartless towards the environment with our disposable diapers.
Iíve never really given it a real thought up until now and in a way, I guess it could be a valid argument. My only issue with this is, yes, I understand Iím contributing (no matter how small) to the problem, but I wear less than five disposable diapers a year, if at all sometimes.
To me, even though itís plastic waste in the landfill ether way you cut it, I just canít see how that would come anywhere close to a real baby who is stuck in them 24/7. I couldnít say for sure, but I believe the statistics between how many disposable diapers the modern baby uses vs. an adult baby, would be staggering.
While knowing itís just a B.S. excuse to bash what we do, I canít help but to wonder about it.
In my case, disposable are convenient because A. I donít own my own washer and dryer. B. Iím WAY too chicken to take a laundry bag full of adult cloth diapers to my local laundry mat.
