Were you cloth diapered? (Share pictures if you've got 'em!)

I came across a picture of me in a cloth diaper from sometime around 1985.

It appears to be a Gerber-type pull-up cover that may or may not be ripped.

Let's all take a moment and say a word of thanks for the long way we've come in the cloth diapering world!

So I want to know...

Were you cloth diapered? Do you have pictures to share? I wanna see!

You look exactly the same. I am like that too (look exactly like my baby pictures).

I wasn't cloth diapered... and was born in December 1978.

My grandma cloth diapered all 5 of her kids (uncle, three aunts and my dad) and my aunt cloth diapered all 5 of her kids though.

I know that I was CDed but don't have pics. My parents are floored that I have chosen to CD and also by how completely different it is now

I'm a bicentennial baby and was cloth diapered. I don't have any pics, they are "lost" in my parents' pack-rat house

My mom said I was CD my dad said no. I can't find pictures to prove one or the other. Considering my super sensitive skin, I'm inclined to believe my mother.

I was definitely a sposie baby, but my DH was a cloth baby and as were his two brothers (he was actually the one who instigated my cloth obsession). He does remember the youngest being diapered and it cracks me up because all he remembers is his brother taking off the gerber pull up pants and playing with poo. Ewww.

I was cloth diapered with prefolds and plastic pants. That also what I used on my oldest 2 kiddos.

I sure was, in fact my parents still have some VERY old DSQ prefolds that are now used as household rags. Only the first 3 of us were CD'd, by the time babies 4-7 showed up my parents could afford sposies, haha.

No pics, but you have prompted me to ask my parents for some childhood pics so I can scan them into my computer
