Anyone else read this lately? Some people recommended it to me and I read the section on diapering and they clearly haven't updated that section since the book first came out! She's talking about having to use pins and covers if you cloth diaper and it's very biased towards using disposables. She's completely discounting the health benefits for the baby and is talking about how washing them is just as bad for the environment as using sposies.

That is lame and the claim about resource intensiveness of cloth is an old fabrication from some BS old Pampers "study". Unless you live in a highly water restricted area there is no contest. And with potty training happening later and later on average it is even more extreme.
I have never bought or read a "what to expect..." book. They are unscientific, promote fearfulness and anxiety, and simply are not good books from everything I've heard and read about them. I have seen their misinformation called out on science mom blogs before. I don't know why they are so popular.
