I can't believe it's been almost 8 months! I started when DS was about a week old ( I had a really bad delivery!) But his cord didn't fall off til he was 5 weeks so I only had a few (about 4) diapers that went under his stump. At 5 weeks we jumped in with both feet! I have tried sooo many different diapers, but have come back to a very simple stash of mainly MEOS and a couple WAHM diapers, and a dozen prefolds to use on wash day. I have been fortunate enough to be fairied some cute diapers (thank you fairies!!)but most of my dipes are pretty plain. I discovered wool about 2 months into CDing and I LOVE using it, exp. because it's super hot here. I have spent more than I would have liked to, but it's not too bad! LOL!

A year and 8 months! I started when DD was a few weeks old. I've tried so many different dipes. My current stash is a nice combination of WAHM AIOs and fitteds.

I started in Dec 2000, when my first dd was 7 mos old and began with Wahm dipes. Now my second dd is almost 16 mos and we're still going strong. Things sure have changed in Wahm-dom since then!

Well I CD'd DS every once in a while after he was born, but he spent most of his time naked or in a pamper. I wasn't allowed to CD him until our room was finished. We were living in a tiny room packed with stuff and CDs would just add mroe to it, so that was a no. Our room finaly got done in late feb-early march and that is when i started. He was 8 months old when I started CDing all day and 9 months old when we started full time(adding night time diapers). So I guess we have been CDing full time for almost 2 months.

I remember wanting to CD from birth because my mom had CD'd me and my 2 siblings, so I just felt like I should.

Hi, my name is Claire and I'm addicted to cloth.

I first started CDing my son at the end of 2001 with simple whisper wraps and gerber prefolds. I liked them ok, but then around age one he started pulling them off. I gave up cleaning pee and poo from the floor and went to sposie land.

This time around I'm discovering the much bigger world of cloth diapers. I started with the same G prefolds and whisper wraps. Then was given some used Little Lambs AIOs and then I began to explore the world of AIOs. I like many other AIOs. Now... I was fairied with my FIRST EVER fitted. It's for night time. What a grand idea! i love it! I wonder what else I need to discover!

If you're just talking about my own kids, 3.5 years. BUT, I CD'd other people's kids (namely, my younger brothers and sisters ) from 1978 until I moved out in 1987 with good ol' curity prefolds, pins and gerber plastic pants. I think I can count that time, too, since I even washed diapers then - toilet dunking, wet pail and all.

We started when Liam was about 7ish weeks old, so just a few weeks shy of a full year. We had to take a break when we moved, though, so in reality it's more like about ten months.

mostly WAHM, sometimes WOHM to my : two boys.

Am I the only one here who hasn't yet had the pleasure of cloth diapering a child? I just had no idea that cloth was so sophisticated back when DS was born and he was completely diapered in disposables ( I feel so guilty now.) Now I am totally obsessed and I can't wait for my baby to be born so that I can get some of this cloth on her bottom.

I've been CDing since Jan 2002 when DS was about 15 months old. With potty training for DD looming in the near future, I am trying to talk DH into baby #3. The thought of not CDing a baby makes me sad!

This is the the obsession that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friends

4.5 months for me and Raidan - and we are loving it. A little rebellious toss of the hair to all those women who told me I wouldn't make it more than two weeks washing my own dipes!
