Re: Just wondering - Were you CDed as a baby?

BOTH DH and I were CD'd. I was born in the UK and CD'ing was fairly common. Plus, I was terribly allergic to the 'sposies. My sis was also allergic, so my mom CD'd both of us. It sounds like she used prefolds and vinyl pants. We still have some of the old prefolds and use them for furniture polishing (seriosuly...over three decades and still going strong). DH was also a CD baby, but he doesn't know why. His dad told us once that he once stuck him with a pin when he was a few weeks old and never really forgave himself. My mom is shocked that I want to CD (she says the house will smell like pee). I keep telling her times have changed... My sis flat out refused. Oh well...

Yes, I was. Mom used flannel flats and rubber pants and she washed everything by hand...

Re: Just wondering - Were you CDed as a baby?

I don't think that I was. I have seen pictures of me when I was little, and it looks like I was wearing sposies. It would have been around the time that sposies were just coming out, so I am pretty sure that I was wearing them.

My mom isn't around anymore to ask though, and my dad doesn't remember.

I think that I was formula fed as well, but I never thought to ask my mom if she tried to BF me.

Re: Just wondering - Were you CDed as a baby?

Yep me and my sis both were. Sposies were coming out but they didnt' work well and were very pricy. Mom tells stories of running out of the plastic pants and using plastic wrap tied around us with a towel as the diaper on wash days. Mostly she used flats and prefolds.
