The mod of this board is stepping in to comment now. Thanks, Heather for carrying on in my absence.
My first reaction to the original post was that it was a CIO thread. There really isn't much to discuss about a diaper pin sticking your child while letting them CIO. It can go one of two ways -- it turns into a discussion of other types of cloth diapers that don't use pins, or it turns into a discussion of CIO.
I am perfectly okay with this thread continuing on as a CIO thread as long as the OP is okay with that. It seemed to be the natural direction it was going to take. If you are not, let me know and I can lock the thread and members will be free to start another thread.
For those who are really interested in debating the whole CIO issue remember that you really are preaching to the choir here at MDC when it comes to CIO. There are some members who have tried it, and some members who feel that it is fine, but they are in the clear minority. This discussion seems to arise often on various boards and I encourage members to do a search. You will find many interesting threads from days gone by.
If the discussion continues as a CIO discussion, please keep it respectful. I have my mom and stepdad staying with me and that puts me in a bad mood.
I'm not a fun moderator when I'm crabby.
