Holli! I still think about you often. I'm so glad to hear you're doing well, but so sad that she's already considering potty learning. Poor mama.

Just popping in here!
I'm not an "old time-old timer" but I have been CDing for almost 6 years!
I started in the midst of the Honeyboy craze-I remember when the first one broke a $100, and then $150. and then $200!!! It was so exciting to see!
I also remember the first diapers that I "splurged" on for DD #1-they were the sweetest little fitteds ever-Darla Peekabears...They were sort of like a Kissaluv. And does anyone remember BoDinks? They were so awesome! I loved the gussetted sides.
I like to think that I was partially responsible for making the Cuddlebuns hot-I HAD to have everyone that showed up on auction and had over 60 of them at one time! I'll have to dig out a picture.
And the Fuz...
Sigh...
I also started out with some MEOS and some ME Sandies and would you believe that I am still using them and they are still functional!

I only joined MDC about a year ago, but the main reason was for the diapering talk. I'd never even heard of hyenas or WAHM diapers before I joined--I thought I'd died and gone to heaven after discovering FBs and MEOS, so you can imagine how I felt after finding out about SOSs and FCBs.

Pretty much all of my stash is WAHM diapers, thanks to the hyenas who used to frequent the board, and made cloth diapering so exciting and addictive for me. Since the split, I never bother going to the main diapering forum--it's just not that interesting to me. And plus, I don't really like "supporting" the people who complained about all the hyena threads. I never really understood why they were so offended. Don't like reading threads about stockings or expensive diapers? You can pretty much tell by the thread title, so don't click on them!

I've been hoping that since the six-month trial period is up, or close to being up, that MDC would reconsider and change it back. The split was a huge blow to the WAHMs who buy their advertising space here, IMO. MDC used to be an important venue for developing new customers for WAHMs, but not anymore.

But I suppose ending the split is just a pipe dream--and anyway, the hyenas have all gone elsewhere, or perhaps are off of online boards altogether.

I've only been on MDC for a couple of years...not long enough it seems to remember a lot of these "old school" dipes. I do remember that HUGE FM stocking about a year or so back...where I actually managed to score something. The only time EVER that I've managed to score at FM! Even if it was only nightlights & a couple of (fairly plain) wool covers!

My thoughts exactly. I miss the old I-can-hardly-keep-up-because-it's-so-active board I joined.

Man, even this thread is days old now. I used to check in here multiple times a day and I can't even remember when I last posted in diapering. This board is what convinced me I could CD...I used a service before it. I recently lent a friend all my outgrown ElBees...love those.

I remember when this place was the fun, warm, happening place to be. I remember when I could post a question and have ten answers in five minutes. I remember when there were always at least 20 people stalking the TP.

I know. This board is truly, probably irretrievably dead. They've utterly killed it. There are posts at the bottom of this page from ten days ago. Ten. Unbelievable.: It's so dead the mods can't even be bothered to police our critical posts anymore. They know hardly anyone is here to read them.

they were my absolute favorites! sigh, how i loved them!

that kiwi with the clothesline was the end-all for me! apparently, i started cd at the height of hyena-ness. it was quite intoxicating! dh could never understand how i went from sposies to obsessed with stalking cloth seemingly overnight!

so true. this was my big leap into MDC and without the fun craziness of the diapering crew, i wouldn't have ventured out into the rest of MDC!

Ok, i probably wouldn't have spent nearly as much money, but ...... :

Holli! How is it possible Mari has been home a year??? good to hear you're all doing so well! your stash was always quite the sight to behold.

i bought a used tootsweet dipe from butterflymom ages & ages ago & it's still my favorite fitted. (nostalgically speaking since dd went & potty learned on her own last august ) i loved the action of the TP. now i've got 2 bags of dipes in my closet i should sell (since we're completely on the fence about ttc #2) & just don't have the patience in me.

who knows, maybe a wave of babylust will come over me & i'll see you all at the hc forums...

My favorite fuz set was the Winter Star one... her very first one. I tried to get one for my last child, but I got maxed out at 75 bucks. Lol.

Oh, well.

We still have the unicorn cover, and many others. But Mari is showing signs of being interested in the potty. I bought my first new diapers in nearly a year the other day from Tiff, and they were probably my last ever.

I admit that I moved on to other obsessions like cool wooden toys, back to scrapbooking, etc.

But, Mari does love talking about her diapers like I had hoped, and we have never used a sposie even on our vacations since she came home.

Hi Holli! I think of you guys often! I was so sad when you disappeared. lol

I haven't been hanging on the diaper board for a while now, it just feels weird...

My favs were sos's and the ice star and suna nd moon sets...

Tuesday Bear .... : I remember WAY before TB!! It was a NEW wahm for me.....
post #75 of 140
I read this whole thread, and it made me a little sad. I'm really not an oldtimer, but I do remember a lot of what has been mentioned. When I came here, I distinctly remember honeyboys going thru the roof (b/c I thought people had lost their marbles or it was an inside drug ring b/c surely no one was paying over a hundy for a single diaper ), everybody *had* to have fb's, there was talk of something that everyone was mourning-mollytogs, and the hyena name (nasty threads and all ) was just coming into being. It started over SOS diapers if I recall correctly, lol.

Beyond the cattiness, these boards were a wonderful resource before the split: Heather Sanders' dissertations on cleaning, repelling fb tests w/mama subjects (ahem ), scientific absorbency tests, water info, fuz gardens, some of us deciding to try this "knitted wool" soaker idea out (thank you LTK!!!!) since our crats had performed so well but we wanted less bulk, me trying to get the whole world to wrap their kids' behinds in hemp. My first expensive diaper purchase was a motherease sandy's, and if it didn't hold Ian's pee, I was about to give up, b/c it gave me serious sticker shock at $10, lol. Then I was introduced to world of wahms and fmbg, I think, was my first wahm diaper. I was searching high and low for hemp, but couldn't find it except for hempers prefolds that are about as stiff and scratchy as sandpaper, yikes, and she had hemp. Oooooh, and the beautiful fabrics she used to choose, or have us choose from if we got on her customs lists-pages and pages of gorgeous fabrics. Then I had to try every wahm that was out there, and BBB fast became my favorite for soakers (this was when she only sold on ebay and you could get one for around $20, no bidding wars at all, and we were all scared to try them but they looked so freaking pretty w/all the cool colorways). I was into fuz diapers, and also very much enjoyed sugarpeas, liz's cloth, lukes, and a couple others. I remember when a lot who are hyena now didn't even make diapers or covers, and I remember when they all started. I sadly remember several finding the wahm graveyard.

Then the list became exhaustive to me (a real wahm explosion btwn my 2nd and 3rd sons), people were always making me feel like shit for how much I spent or how many I had (not personally attacked, but the shame on ALL of you thrashing reserved only for the diapering moms here ), the board split, and it wasn't fun anymore. I'm glad I'm done diapering now. It isn't at all like it was, as is the case w/everything in life-enjoy it in the moment b/c the moment will end.......anyway, it was fun to remember. I used to really love my diapers, and when diapering really sucked, mamas were here to help keep me going.

My personal favorites were the blue skies/burning sun fuz garden and my custom phish covers. I kept the phish covers.

Felt good to get all that out. Thanks for reading me if you made it through. I was feeling nostalgic since today is Zach's birthday!

Happy Birthday to Zach. I am so sad...I remember you clearly from the diapering board, and I didn't even know you had another babe.

And where is the wahm graveyard? I might be there someday.

Lisa .... thanks for doing such a great recap.. it is sad and I have been slightly nostaligic about it myself lately.

You know, I've felt that way, too! I was just talking with dh that I can't even remember the last time I tried something new...I used to be constantly buying and selling dipes. My stuff just didn't move on the TP and w/o the paypal I just don't have the funds anymore. Quite honestly, checking this board helped me get through PPD with DD1...
