Remembering the good dipes - Page 5

post #81 of 140
Hmmm...I remember:

Sullybunz
Sweet Pickles
MommyHearts
Luke's Drawers
The Original Poochies
Elkebellas
Darla's Dipes
Kissaluvs-the first ones
Fuzzi Bunz-The first ones
When covers were made with Ultrex
When flannel dipes were the norm
and tons more, but that just makes me feel my diapering age-lol

Oh my goodness . . .this thread brings back so many memories, even though I wasn't a hyena.

I remember when I found Elbee baby and I thought the 2 month wait list was long . .

I remember when you couldn't get Sugar Peas easily!

I miss Darling Diapers (I know they are still around sort of) and Buckeye Bottoms. No more Celestial Diapers.

I loved looking at the fuz, RB, and Tuesday Morning.

I remember when it was easy to get a Kiwi Pie (I actually got some).

What I LOVED was all the diaper science stuff. I left when hemp was the wonder fabric, but read something about bamboo??? I am so out of the loop now!

When I first discovered "hyena" diapers was in the midst of the Sugar Peas craziness - when she would send out an email that she had stocked and there was a mad rush. Getting print outer fitteds (especially hand dyed knits) was impossible they sold for a fortune on ebay.

Also when the El Bee "number list" started and when you got on the list your wait actually was *only* six months.

RB FLAGs and Wolly Pullys were impossible to get - what else?.... SOS was crazy for a loooong time.

I havent been on a diaper site in so long I dont even know what is hard to get anymore - if there even still is hard to get stuff.

Let's do this... let's all go try out HC's forums. http://hyenacart.com/phpbb/ I'll make a commitment to check in there at least once a day, ok? How about you take that challenge too. (unless someone has a better idea?)
I have been gone for a while - just crazy life stuff and came back wondering WHAT IN TH WORLD happened - where is everyone! Now I see... I am heading to find you guys now! I miss everyone - I hardly recognize any names in diapering anymore.

Phishmama, those were the days...i have not been around here in a super long time! I remember when "hyena" was coined, and that was definatly around the time those Honeyboys were going for hundreds. Am i the only one who remberes a Hoeyboy selling for $500? I swear they did.

Some of my favorites, were definatly the Ivy Rose, Heavenly Hineys, Benjamuffins (when Laura owned it) and the original Firefly's, way before Laurie from Fuzbaby bought itthe original "quick dry" diaper, along with Peik-a-boos!. I loved Poochies,and Valor Kids, Luke's Drawer's rocked, and Suzie's first organic interlock SOS diapers were my absolute favorites, paired with a Fuzbom, when you could just go over and order a fuzbom.

I in fact own each Fuzbaby garden set, with the exception of the Kiwi. I bought them when my son was already out of diapers, and i still love them. Call me crazy, but i someday hope to have another child :

My first diapers were from a service, and then i found Motherease and then from the back of Mothering Magazine, i saw a small ad for WAHMall....the cloth diaper auction site. From there there was Amity's World and all the diaper buzz. My first WAHM diaper was a FMBG, and I too fell in love.....hemp diapers? 10 layers? Wow, they took forever to dry, but hey, it was hemp, and i was doing good things for my child.

I remember when the wool craze took off, before that there really were just Aristocrats, and wool Bumpy's. I had my share of flannel diapers and Nikky covers, and i think i had every WAHM made diaper out there, in my hands at one time or another. I was crazed and addicted, and absoultly amused.

I have saved my favorites, the ones that i just could not part with, the original SOS's, with all the holes, my original Fuzbom's and the Ivy Rose's i had made out of old tee shirts.

Those were the days, and how i just loved the show and tells, and all the other fun diapering stuff that went on. DS and I still talk about it, funny how he remembers his diapers. That is going to last him a lifetime, not to mention all the HUGE diaper butt pictures we have of him.

sooooo your all on the HC forums now??
post #88 of 140
I think a lot of people are, yes
post #89 of 140
I am in the same camp as several of you who posted - I was never hyena but bought a lot of nice dipes on the TP, and used to check in here daily to see what was going on and just drool over the beautiful wool. My DS was already in larges at that time.

The disappointing thing for me is that I had new baby girl and originally planned to get her cute dipes, but without this forum I just haven't been as into it. A few AIO's and that's it. And we have so far been doing 50-50 cloth and sposies this time around.

I think I will also look into the other group at HC and see if I can't get motivated again. Tho it's kinda hard to find time to check in at multiple sites - was nice when everything I was interested in was at MDC.

Same here!

Can someone please tell me (maybe via PM if it breaks the rules somehow) how/why things changed so much here?
post #91 of 140
I can't seem to get motivated either. I lurk and post occasionally at HC but I was in a groove here and it is tough to get that groove back!

Mizelenius, I don't think it is against the rules to tell you.

Here is the original thread that started the split:

http://www.mothering.com/discussions...ight=diapering

Most people for the split wanted it because they felt the diapering board was unwelcoming to simple diaperers. None of them posted here then, said they wouldn't post more if there was a split and haven't posted again.

Thanks, Kate. When I was here, I wasn't a hyena-- I love (and continue to love) prefolds and wool or nylon covers. But, I enjoyed looking at other people's things.

No one ever made fun of me for loving prefolds . . .it was even cool back then. How sad that people were ridiculed for it. Things sure have changed.

post #93 of 140
I know when I joined MDC--right around the time of the first post in that thread, as a matter of fact, though I didn't see it till now--I was struck by how tight the hyenas seemed to be with one another. They obviously were good friends who enjoyed sharing photos and stocking news. It wasn't intimidating, exactly, but it did make me feel like a bit of an outsider.

I wonder if that's what the anti-hyena posters were really responding to--that sense of closeness that the hyenas had, and the flip side, which might have made some people feel excluded. I never felt unwelcome, just not part of the close-knit circle.

Anyway, it does irk me that it wasn't okay that some "simple stash" people felt excluded, but it *was* okay to segregate the hyenas and make them feel excluded instead. :
post #94 of 140
I remember the thread that started it all....the lone prefold and snappi pic thread. That was a mess. :
post #95 of 140
Really there is an entire history about it not even touched on or just alluded to in that thread and it got really ugly on both sides. Really there was just one comment in that prefold/snappi thread by ONE person who doesn't even post here anymore... but it was made to seem like every single hyena thought like that (and I assure everyone, we don't!) TAO can be just as intimidating... heck I have been here for years and I still don't feel comfortable there!
post #96 of 140
Whoa! I didn't even know about that thread. I thought the only thread was the one asking if the diapering board should be split. Now it all makes sense....how sad....<sigh>

Yes. And too bad the original prefold and snappi thread vanished (I am assuming it did) because I remember it and . . . well, I think it'd be good to have around is all.

It was locked.... lemme search for it. I am curious if it was deleted BTPTB.
post #99 of 140
Ok, I searched because I was curious. It has completely disappeared. I remember the poster, the person who called the TAO gals a trol and the TAO girls who were offended... searched all of them and nothing.

Original OP was titled "Look What I Scored!!!" posted in TAO and pictured a prefold and snappi. People commented how cool and rare it was, joking around... it got moved to diapering, and then it went a little crazy.

I've been gone since before the split, but now that I'm pg w/ #2, I came back to a very different diapering board. I wasn't a hyena, but I loved learning about all the WAHMs and trying new stuff. I remember you Maxi's Mama!
