This is true in general, but some patents can be for longer. FB owns the patent and I believe the term is 20 years, so we all have a while longer to wait.

I've head that baby duckhead diapers were around before FBs too. I've even heard that Gerber had a version much earlier than that! But for whatever reason the patent has stood despite the massive amount of money spent challenging it.
