You do not look majorly crunchy! I am def. major crunch too, but I am not obviously so...unless you talk to me and how could you miss it :LOL

You too are another perfect example that CDing makes you look young-- a new age fountain of youth perhaps?

Oh and you are right, Maxi is pretty freakin cute

Sweetpea, I don't even REMEMBER 27. It was before marriage, before children, before the back went awry... heck, it was 1990

Well, I'm 24 yet still a child of the 70s (barely). Sometimes I think I'm young for being a mom, because most of the women I know are in their late 20s or early 30s, but then I realize that they're on their 2nd or 3rd kid. If I'd met them when they were my age, they'd have had a kid too. I just don't know anyone my age right now with kids here. I do back in Washington though. Anyway, my OB back in Seattle said about 24 or 25 was the national average for having a kid (or was that having a 1st kid)... I don't remember.. Sorry I'm not more help!

I'm 24 (and 1/2) and DS is just 6 mo. BUT my mom is pg with DC #5 and she plans on CDing (she's 47, but don't tell her I told you that ). She only CDed me full time for about a year and my siblings their first month of life, then moved to disposables. With this new babe, she's thinking of cding full time til pt b/c she sees how easy it is for me YEAH, my first convert (sorta )

I'm 25 and have a masters degree and a professional job. Alot of my friends think I'm nuts to CD, but then most of them think of gauze flats, pins, and rubber pants. Even I was content with proraps and CPFs untill I discovered MDC.
CD could so easily become mainstream -- Oprah could do a show, mainstream mags could give CDs away instead of sposies, and maybe there could be a mamma in a movie who's a total hyena! Wouldn't that be a riot!

Well I'm currently 29, so that's what I checked, but I won't officially be a CD mama until I have the baby and I turn 30 a couple of weeks after my due date so that would be a whole separate grouping. At least I'll always be able to say I was in my 20s when I started having kids! Pretty good way to avoid a 30th birthday party, too, if I do say so myself.

I feel old....nah..no I don't

I turned 32 in july, and had #1 kiddo at 29. i remember my early 20's (and really don't like the memories ).

We started CD about 6 months ago, with #2. She likes it, i like it, DH even likes it. I tried putting cloth on DS and got "nooooo" and he gave DD the diaper

I am a child of the 70's...I remember the 80's ...and want to buy those 80's compilation CD's they sell on late night infomercials :LOL

Oldster of 37 years old here! I feel every bit 37. I think I look it also. I also probably totally look the part of a cd mama. I am sort of crunchy (after all, I did go to college at UC Santa Cruz - the hippy capital of the world). I had my first child at 33 but didn't cd him. DH says he wanted to but I totally shut him down (don't remember that but oh well...) With dd I started researching cding when I was pregnant and dh was against it. I did it anyways because I can count the number of diapers dh has changed on one hand. I love cloth and if I am blessed with being able to have more babies they will be cd'd as well.

I turned 25 in June, but started cding when I was .. 24!

I didn't cd until dd#2 but wish I would have found it sooner!!

I'm the only one I know who has a sling (I have seen a Baby Bjorn or two though!) and uses cloth.. or thinks that bringing babies in bed WON'T spoil them!! I live in a five stoplight town too... and it's the biggest town for 90 miles around

I'm feeling old reading this thread. I'm 30, had my 1st baby at 30, so that's when I started CDing. I'm one of the first of my irl friends to have a baby, so I don't feel like an older 1st time mom irl. I don't know any CDing moms irl though.
