Im 27. I tried cloth with my ds when he was born 4 years ago but had too many problems. I didnt have the knowledge that I do now about diapers. I think not cloth diapering him helped encourage me to cloth diaper my dd when she was born.

I am 25... I started CDing among all the other earthy things when DD was born, I was 24. For us there was no questions, Cloth was just natural- even if I had been younger. I feel like I am 12 most days! I still cant belive I am old enough to be a mama

I'm 22, and I plan to be young for the rest of my life. So, if you are driving through GA 60 years from now and see a really old woman in a magnolia tree, it'll probably be me, just wave.

My youngest babe will be 18 when I'm only 40. I like to remind my childless friends of that when they talk about waiting until they are older.

I am 23! I was 22 when DD was born, but I started thinking (and dreaming about) cloth diapers before we even started trying for a baby, when I was around 20 :LOL

I'm 28. I've been cding since ds was born and I was 27. I've always felt like people look at me as a young mom. I guess I'm kind of leaning toward the old side of things here. I cerainly still feel young, though.

I'm 30. I cloth diapered my first 10 years ago. So... I was young when I started. :LOL Back then, I was excited because I found prefolds that had velcro attached to them! I had other prefolds and birdseye flatfolds, and although I had plenty of Dritz pins, I also had these little diaper clips that I used instead of pins oftentimes.

Here's a funny.... I still have a few of the prefolds with velcro! They are not in good shape, but I had to keep them.

No way! If it makes you feel better you don't look any older than 21, max. Seriously!!

I am 21, I started CD at age 20, but decided to CD when I was... hmmm well... 2 years old with my dolly? I was 19 when I was pregnant and made a commitment to CD a *real* baby.

FTR, I don't act a day older than 12.
