Cloth and Walking

My little guy is 9 months old and close to walking. Is he going to have a harder time walking in cloth? I only ask because there was a mention of this in my Parents Magazine. He wears Flips and BG 3.0 not sure if that makes a difference.

Cloth isn't going to delay his walking. My youngest started walking younger then her brother and sisters and she is the only one to be completely cloth diapered from minute 1

Thanks, I'd hate to delay him by doing something that is so good for him. Too bad the Parents magazine isn't a bit more informed.

It didn't seem to delay any of my 3 children. They all stood and cruised at nine months, and were walking unassisted by a year of age.

I think people often forget that cloth was the norm until 40-ish years ago. Our parents and grandparents managed to learn to walk without issues.

I also agree, both my girls were 100% CD'ed and they were both running by 10-11 months, it didn't slow them down one bit!

It didn't seem to bother my tiny DD when she was nearly 2 and in cloth. I don't think it will make a difference.

Re: Cloth and Walking

my son started walking at 9 months as well and he was clothed from birth. you can not stop a baby that doesnt know any different! his older sister who wasnt clothed until the end (as a pl incentive) didnt walk until she was 17 months old. i think they walk when they are ready regardless of the dipe

Re: Cloth and Walking

Me and my sisters were all cloth diapered. All of us learned to walk before 12 months...I was the latest at 12 months and my oldest sister learned to walk at just 9 months. Mom used low end bulky Gerber prefolds and those gigantic gerber plastic pants. When we were kids in the 60's she didn't know any mom's who used disposables and the manufacturers of disposables marketed them as a convenience product for working mom's. My mom and most of the mom's she knew were all stay at home mom's till the kids reached school age...that was the norm back then. None of us are bowlegged either.

It's so irritating that the parenting magazines don't realize that modern day mom's are becoming increasingly more interested in cloth. Disposables are not going to go out of style if they mention the words cd, but cloth is making a real comeback and magazines would do well to be informed about the latest and greatest cd's on the market.

Re: Cloth and Walking

I started CDing my daughter at 7 months, she cruised at 8.5 months and walked at 10 months. I used crappy Gerber prefolds, with another pad folded in, super bulky! She didn't have any problems. Just a little extra cushioning for the occasional fall.
