( we use pockets with snaps) and i said no pins, never used one on here and he was impressed and examined the diaper for a few minutes. It kinda made me laugh.
Another Burlington CD mom here! Our ped is down in Ft. Madison and he's baffled by the CDs--but thinks they're cool.

I live northwest of Des Moines but I'm originally from the QC, both DH and I grew up there.
There's a WAHM CD store in Des Moines, here is her site: thestorkwearhouse.com

Lisbon mama here, originally from Mediapolis. Hi to all the other mama's! There is a growing group of CDing mamas in this area, and we are always trying to recruit more! I havent gotten any strange comments about the CD, but some curious questions. We will see what the Dr has to say about it Monday when we go in for a check up!

Re: Anyone from IA?

Hi Iowa Moms!!

I am in North Liberty- smack dab between you Iowa City gals and the ones from Cedar Rapids. Is anybody else surprised that there aren't more resources for cloth diapers in the Iowa City area? Or maybe there are- and I just havn't found them yet!

I am planning to head up to the re-named Baby Matters in CR- but are there any other local places to look at CD's before purchasing?

I also have a Quad Cities connection- I attended Augie and grew up in Geneseo on the Illinois side. I would say its our second home, I could live at Whitey's

Would love to also hear about your favorite cloth diaper patterns. I am hoping to get some sewed up before the little guy gets here.
