Heirloom diaper?

I'm always making fun of my Pack-rat Mom, but not this time! I told her I was switching to cloth diapers, and she says, "Oh, I think I have a bunch of diapers I used on you and your sister and brother up in the attic. Let me go look and I'll call you back." So yesterday we talk and sure 'nuff, she's got "a lot, a whole lot" of dipes, all prefolds, from 20-30 years ago in "excellent" condition, some even brand new. I'm actually excited to see them, she's shipping them this week! Imagine, wrapping my baby's little butt in the same one's I used. I can see them in my mind, and remember how fluffy and soft they were on my younger siblings...seem to remember burying my face in the clean clothes basket frequently.

My mom was grossed out when I told her I switched to cloth.

Very cool! "Vintage" diapers seem to go for a fortune on ebay...
