This a fun thread! In "real life" most moms I know are 5-15 years older than I am, so it is nice to see such a mix here! I started CD with my first son when he was six months old, I was 23. Now, I'm 25 and he is getting to graduate to training pants (26 mo). I am still getting plenty of diaper changes for his 13 mo old little bro, though.

Wow, almost 1/2 of the people who voted are 26-30. That is impressive! I did not think the numbers would fall like that!!!

All CDers and CDers-to-be are so wise and intelligent though I guess I assumed we would all be older...there I go stereotyping myself.

Interesting really!!

I'm 32 for another month and a half. Wow, so many of you are so young! I always feel like a young mom, but I guess it's all just state of mind! I forget I'm in the 'over 30 conspiracy'.

Ah, this is where the similarities end... I'm nearly a decade older - 34 heck if I would have started having children, even at the age you are now, Steve could have his 6, no problem. :LOL But as it is, he may only get 4 or if he's really lucky 5. Had my first dd at 28 considered cding but didn't have access to information on cding today (and thought it was like mom did it, YUCK!), made the switch when dc #3 was 2 mo old and I was 32 1/2.

ETA: for those of you who are in your 20s and feel 40 - never fear! I felt 40 since I was 22, so I haven't aged in 12 yrs. :LOL

I am 37.
I had my first baby at 18yo...yes, I AM old enough to be your mother! :LOL That BABY of mine just turned 19 years old thie past Tuesday, the 26th.

My second baby was the first one I cd'ed. She is going to be 17 years old on November 27th. I have been cloth diapering for just about 17 years, non-stop.

I use diaper service, then bought my own pre-folds and covers. I have pre-folds that have been used on all of my last 7 babies. Talk about getting your money's worth!

Do I feel old? Nope. Do I look old? No idea. My family pic is in my sig line.

Donna -- I think you look SUPER! Holy cow... for all the children you've been through.. you're totally my idol. Seriously. I would a beautiful, big family like yours!! (and I would hope that I could look even *half* as good as you do when I'm your age I'd be SOOOO happy)!

we will believe you :LOL

And 37 is not old. 50 is middle aged so 37 is still in the young years
I had to google Daisy Fuentes (I guess that proves both my age and my pop culture challenged crunchiness) :LOL

All you young momas are so mature. It truly does amaze me. So much wisdom for such young age. I have changed so much since 19. I can hardly remember who I was.

I'm 23 and have been CD'ing since I was 21

I'm 27 (will be 28 on the 13th on Nov ). I've been cd'ing since I was 25.
post #131 of 134
Scratch that! I've been cd'ing since I was 6. My little brother was cd'd (as were all of us) and I changed him quite often! :

And here is a picture of me (looking as old as I am ) http://pic3.picturetrail.com/VOL19/1...9/69051853.jpg

I am 39, started cd'ing at 38, about 3 days before my bday. I didn't cd my older children. I knew about it though and wanted to with the twins, but dh flat out refused and I didn't need the whole burden with twins and a 2 yo. My oldest is 8 1/2, so I was 30 when I first became a mom. That was after 3 years of TTC though.

And I don't feel "old" at all. I feel pretty much the same except for wanting to lose weight.

I was pleasantly surprised that half of the mamas here are around my age (turning 27 next month). To our friends and families, we started a family "early". We are the only ones with a baby, let alone CD'ing!

I don't think there's a stereotypical looking CD'ing or AP mama. Here's us

You are beautiful! You and your dh (I assume?) are so cute together!
