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

I was cloth diapered in 1981, as was the little boy my mom kept. My brother, however, born in 1972 was not cloth diapered. There are several pictures of me in a cloth diaper. My mom says it was prefolds and nylon pants that look alot like Dappi pants. She said it never leaked.

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

I was a sposie baby, my mom tried cloth but gave up when I kept getting rashes. (I'm allergic to all kinds of stuff as an adult including Tide laundry soap). DH was a cloth baby, his parents chose that for economic purposes at the time.
My mom actually told me when I said we were going to CD "It's cool you're going to try - but don't get your heart set on it if he takes after you". He's definitely rash prone if he sits wet, but does great otherwise. We use purex free & clear and pampers sensitive wipes. He got bleeding rashes with everything we tried for cloth wipes, even just water ;(

My brother and I were sposie babies ('83 and '86). My mom was CD ('53) and when we bought my grandparent's house I found the flats my grandmother used on her. My grandfather said they made the "best car towels."

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

I was born in '87 and my brother '93 and I can almost say for sure I was a sposie baby and I know my brother was. My mother kept telling me how brave I was when I said I was going to CD, but while she still thinks its gross, she doesn't mind the pee diapers as much.

Now, DF on the other hand was born in '80 and I plan on asking his mother today when i see her! If she did I know she'll have pics!

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

I know I was a sposie baby. The first time my Grandfather baby sat me (he was way ahead of his time changing his kids' cloth dipes back in the 50s) my mom came home and I was naked on the couch with him sitting next to me, sposie in hand, trying to figure out where to pin it. He'd never seen a sposie before!

I was CD'd with flats and rubber pants ('83), my little bro born in '86 - not so much. DH was disposables all the way. His mom was quite concerned when I said I was CDing out first.

My brother and I were cloth diapered. In fact, my mom still uses our cloth diapers as cleaning rags. DH and his 2 brothers were also cloth diapered.

Not a close up but you can see the roundness of the diaper under my sleeper.

The shocked look is because I was just caught braking into the cabinet behind me.
