The Evolution of Cloth Diapers

The Evolution of Cloth Diapers

When my son was small our cloth diaper kit consisted of cloth diapers, safety pins, and the plastic pants that actually slipped on like a pair of pants. I cannot tell you how many times I stuck my fingers with those ‘safety’ pins! Pulling those plastic pants on and off was no treat either, just not as painful…

Now that my son has a son of his own this cloth diaper kit has changed, and in a good and much safer way.

First you have the fasteners. No more worries about sticking the baby or yourself with a safety pin.

Next we have the plastic pants. I love the snaps that allow you to adjust the size as the baby grows! These are much easier on and off compared to the pant style above.

Finally we have the cloth inserts. My son & L have taken this one step further and placed cut paper towels as a top layer for ease of disposing of the solids. No more rinsing in the toilet. Nice…

So glad that using cloth diapers has been made so much easier and safer to use! 🙂

What experiences do you have with cloth diapers?

    Yep, the older diapers were in need of updating. It’s nice to see the changes. 🙂

    My childless sister-in-law, left to baby-sit our infant boy for a few hours, confessed, years later, that she had nearly scraped his male parts with the safety pin. Dangerous, to be sure. A few months later, ensconced in our first apartment together, a salesman called on us to show off the new disposable diapers. He was so excited. I was less impressed. The safety pins tore the disposable paper. Now, of course, they've long since solved that problem but I'm glad parents are rediscovering cloth!
