I am 23... I saw that a few other mamas here are younger too... which got me wondering, is cloth getting to be big among younger mothers? My friend who I converted to cloth is 22. How many young mamas do we have here?

What's considered young? You're only as old as you think you are: I'm 27, but feel much younger and much older. :LOL

I was 21 when I started CDing, now on baby #3 I'm lookin old at 29! LOL!

I think the younger mom's are younger at heart, willing to try new paths, new things, not scared to do an extra load or 2 of laundry each week.

As i get older I get more set in my ways, and lazzzzzyyyyyyy!

i am 23, have been cloth diapering my 18 month old boy since birth & expecting dd in June.

whats all this about being "immature"? im in my babymaking prime

cding is more common here in this part of california i think than in many other parts of the US. but i do find more of the younger mothers i meet tend to cloth diaper, among other great decisions

Yarnia,

Don't feel bad... I'm right here with ya! I'm 38... and lately, feel every MINUTE of it LOLOL!!!

I *LOVE* being "older"... I'm a much better mom now than I could have been in my 20's... I was rather messed up... I wish in some ways I could have had my kids earlier (so I could be younger with them), but... Life is what it is

Lo

me too!
or at least the younger mamas i've talked to about it seem to be more receptive to it, and other "alternative" parenting practices.
not to generalize, though....

I'm 25 (almost 26!) and I've been cd'ing for almost a year. I am the minority with all my friends. They all their disposables...whatever. I do take every opportunity to change ds in front of them and tell them all about cd's. :LOL

I'll be 24 this summer and I CD my baby. Don't have a washer/dryer though but it's worth the inconvienence knowing that the trash I throw away won't be in the landfill in hundreds of years.:LOL

I'll be 33 in precisely 1 month, and I'm expecting lots of nice wool covers from y'all for my birthday party. And I want a cake with a pretty ballerina on it.
