My Cloth Diapering Hero!

I was chatting with a lady from my church (Linda) who cloth diapered all three of her kids and help her DD cloth diaper her 3 kids and also cloth diapers MY kids when she babysits... Anyway we were talking about the diaper that Lily took off during a graduation party and she mentioned that she doesnt know how I diaper with so few diapers (um... 3 dozen?) because when she was diapering she HAD to have 5 dozen and still felt like she didnt have enough to make it! And she washed daily, in a laundry mat! For years! She said her husband would come home from work, pick up the diaper pail, and wash the diapers for her! Or she'd bring the baby and do it herself! She also told me that she couldnt help but buy every brand available at the time, Curity, Gerber and flats. She said her favorites were Gerbers because they were squishier! I just thought it was a neat story! OH! She also went coverless because she hated those plastic pants!

Re: My Cloth Diapering Hero!

That is great! My mom saved the diapers she used on me (gerbers-I think toilet paper is thicker!) and a little tiny yellow cover...so cute! I hope I have a girl next time so I can use it for her, not that a little boy couldn't rock out the yellow rose buds and lace but...

There is also a little blue diaper that looks like a prehistoric version of Thirsties AIOs. I'll have to get pics sometime, I love talking cloth IRL!
