Ahhh nostalgia and a RAVE!

It is amazing how going through old cloth diapers can make you all

My older kids have been out of diapers since late 2003. We have moved several times and I had a bag of diapers sitting in storage since then. Mind you, this was not a climate controlled storage facility, nor were they packed well, just in a garbage bag, actually.

Several diapers are in great shape! I have 5 ME AIOs that the elastic is still very stretchy! These diapers have seen better days as I purchased a lot of 5 of them for $25 back in 2001. Yes, I remember because these in particular were sold as "well loved" and I only bought them to try them out. Some don't even have the top layer of terry cloth. They have been washed and dried and are still great!

I found various custom WAHM diapers I had made and some of them are actually still going good too. I have Snapdragons, Bunny Patch, Sugarplumbaby, Granny's Ark, Cloud 9 Softie.

I was just going through all the old diapers, remembering ordering them, the excitement of getting them and using them.

Aw, I'm glad to hear that! I have some girly diapers in storage (in our basement) and I'd be sad if they got messed up. They've been there about two years so I hope I'm as lucky as you are. I'd love to see some pics!!

Aww, that's great that you still have those. I miss the Cloud 9 Softies! I think it's fun to look over the older ones.

I have a bunch of WAHM fitteds from 1999-2003 that I saved from my girls that still look amazing (Luke's Drawers Cotton Kisses & One Size Wonders, Many Ducks, Ivy Rose, Full Moon Baby Gear, Little Lounging Lizards, Knickernappies from when she was a WAHM making customs with prints in sizes and ME Airflows). My girls are 9 & 12 now and think its fun to see what they used to wear & see their brother wearing the diapers now.
