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

I was in '83. My mom did for all 7, from '68 to '86. Prefold, plastic pants, and pins (she loves pins). I have a nice soft Curity handed down that I'll probably use on my new baby eventually.

My mom is pleased I've decided to CD. She's made me 4 dozen flannel wipes so far...
I have to have one more post before I can post a picture, so picture coming in a second!

I was! But I have no pics. My mom used prefolds and pins. She was amazed at all the new kinds of CDs available now.

Awesome thread! I was cloth diapered as a baby. I don't have any pictures handy on this computer, but I just came across one the other day in my baby albums. It was cool!

My husband's mom surprised us when she told us she CD'ed both her kids!
We will be living with her for a bit when the baby comes, so we figured we should discuss the future commandeering of the washing machine. She thinks its great, and economical...phew! She mentioned that sposies were just too expensive and not available in her area of Australia (early 80s!). I'm going to have to dig around his baby pics now!

My mother is opposed to it, and keeps telling me that I'm going to fail at cd'ing
She had a diaper service (she used it for a week) that she got as a shower gift and she had to swish the dirty diapers in the toilet or something, and she found it pretty disgusting. I grew up hearing that cloth diapering was crazy, and how women who go without meds "have something to prove."

I'm just not going to mention all my hippy plans!

Here are a couple photos of me:

Wow! 7 kids? Hearing that and then seeing pictures like this makes me happy

Yes, I was. Everyone was cloth diapered when I was!

I was born in '80 and cloth diapered. My mom used a service. I asked her if there are any pics of me in CDs and she said "Why on earth would I have taken a picture of you in your diaper" I guess she just saw them as practical and not cute.
