Remember the old cloth diaper days?

  • The folding?
  • The pinning?
  • Double diapering?
  • Swiping the diaper pins through your hair to make them go through the diapers easier?
  • Holding the open diaper pins between your tightly pressed lips when refastening diapers?   
  • The rinsing?
  • The soaking?
  • The stinky diaper pail?
  • The washing?
  • The drying?
  • The rubber pants?
  • Trying to get the little piggies (baby’s sweaty little toes) into the elasticized leg-holes of rubber pants when pulling rubber pants back on again after a diaper change? 
  • Changing diapers in the middle of the night… danger of pin pricks, and getting rubber pants back on baby right-side out and not on backwards? 
  • Checking diapers for wet-wet or dirty… sticking a finger inside one of the elastic leg-holes of rubber pants, or stretching out the elastic waistband of rubber pants to do a check?
  • Washing diapers and rubber pants in a wringer washing machine?
  • Nighttime diapering, after your kids were daytime trained?      
  • Diaper liners? 
  • Hanging diapers and rubber pants on the outdoor clothesline to dry?
  • Remember the plasticy rustling sound the rubber pants made when changing a diaper? 

What are your memories of old-fashioned diapering, and where do your memories stem from?

  • Babysitting (teen years)?
  • Changing baby siblings growing up?
  • Diapering your own children the old-fashioned way?
  • Helping family/friends with their little ones?
  • Daycare?
  • Changing grandchildren? 

When was the last time you changed a cotton-fold diaper with pins and rubber pants?

  • 1960’s?
  • 1970’s?
  • 1980’s?
  • 1990’s?
