Elkebellas and Daisy Diapers were (and still are) some of my faves. I'm still trying to recreate them, still haven't had much success though

I just found a stash of original Poochies made by Jennifer! I bought them, and put them away and totally forgot about them!

I still have and use my Tuesday Bear cover (not really old school, but a very short lived EXTREME hyena item). I also had a JaidensJubilee diaper-might still be around here somewhere if I didn't sell it.

BizzyBHive-havn't heard that name in a while, but I just may not have been looking.

I was visting Orange Starfish today, and she had some OLD SCHOOL diapers up for sale. She had Elkebellas, Sully Bunz, original Poochies, and so many more. Great deals too. I love the Elkebella style for sure. It looks like it would be perfect for my high waisted son. I think about how far cloth-diapering has come, and I am happy for us all as a whole. Cloth diapering has always been beautiful, whether in its simple form, or in it's new wearable art form. Thank you wahm's for providing us with a product that is both functional, and yet appealing to us all.

My mom used Indisposables on my baby brothers in the 80's...I used Kushies on #1 in 1992, Dr.Sweb & Cuddlers on #2 in 1995 (all sucked badly :LOL )

Anyone remember the original "cloud print" Poochies?

I always wondered what happened to Daisy Diapers, I remember she was working on "trim but absorbent" with those.

Or how about ABC stitches?

I have a fleece "AIO" I vaguely remember it being called a "Fuzzi Bunz", but I'm not sure if its just a similar name or if the pocket diapers Fuzzi Bunz started out as fleece AIO's... anyone know?

I had a Babykicks (maker of Joey Bunz) one size hemp fitted that I thought was pretty cool. She hasn't made those in years.

I tried Hempers prefolds and fitteds. Hated them! They never got soft for me like they were supposed to.

Candy was not the original ownder of BB's. It was a mama named Sacha I think? Anyway, I remember ABC stitches, and Hippobottomus. I couldn't afford them though-lol:LOL I had some of the original FB that were all fleece- and had a layer of Ultrex down the middle to help with leaks. The fleece reminded me of micro. I had a yellow and a purple one. We loved them so much, even if they were preloved. Not sure of the aio part, since mine definitely had the pockets. I remember that cloud print btw $18.00 was a lot for a diaper then!! I remember buying two Polar Babies covers when they first came out, and thinking "this better be worth it", and then how ds outgrew them soooo fast, but we loved them while he wore them. Those Tutti-Fruttis were gorgeous. I would stay away from MN's though, cuz I knew I couldn't afford anything. We did a lot of prefolds and Bummis SWW when they first popped out on the scene. We also had some Nikky's I got on clearance and some fitteds from Canada-Baby Loves that were so inexpensive.

some of these have been mentioned, but I found pics (I had to TAKE pics of the pics though! lol) sorry they aren't more clear. Don't know if it was worth the trouble!! :

June 2001 Angel Luv

We had an Angel Luv front aplix AIO that I paid about $10 for. It was pretty absorbant too.

July 01 Hunnybuns and Gabriel Baby

Spencer is wearing a Hunnybuns pul side snap cover and ******* has on a Gabriel Baby front aplix cover with gussetts (sorry you can't see it very well) Hunnybuns are still around, they remind me of an airflow with cute prints! We NEVER had a leak with ours. I should gets some for the baby! Gabriel Baby was one of the "IT" things in 2001. I think I paid about $6.00 for newborn covers.

July 01 Full Moon Baby Gear

Spencer had on a Full Moon Baby Gear AIO. One of the IT things when I started cding. She had a huge wait list that I patiently waited on for 4 months! And $14.00 was expensive for an AIO back then!

August 01 BunnyHugs dipe from Bunny Patch

This was a cute dipe.

July 01 Poochies & Gabriel Baby

First one is a Poochies fitted, I think I paid $8.00 for it. Second is a Gabriel Baby cover (pul) with gussets. These were trim!

August 01 Fiona's Favorites

This was ******* in a Fiona's Favorites diaper cover with fleece gussetts. These were really neat!! I wish I had a better pic to show. She also made pul zippered bags that I'm STILL using. It is awesome!

August 01
Gabriel Baby Fleece cover


Spencer in a Gabriel Baby fleece cover. I used this thing forever!

December 01
Lukes Drawers AIWs


These were the NEW thing for Lukes Drawers. I bought 18 of them thinking both kids could wear them, but they were not a onesize for my boys. I think this was one of the most expensive diapering items of the time at about $20?

March 02 Zootkitty!!

Who didn't love Zootkitty!! Her covers fit soo darn cute!

Feb 02 Bizzy B

I won this auction even though it was a little girlie! I *STILL* love anything that Candy makes!

I have a pic of Spencer in a Peaceful Moon prefold, but I can't find it.

So I'm adding

Peaceful Moon
Handmade for Baby
Fionas Favorites

Since October 1999 Valor Kids

My first diaper was a Cloud 9 Softie flannel diaper and some other diaper but I cannot even remember the name of it. I also liked Luke's Drawers for Zeke and a few others. There were alot of flannel diapers back then. :LOL and $8 for a large but they were all flannel. :LOL

These were cool, I liked the name too. I like the idea of a pocket diaper, these were one of the very first.

The first non- prefold diapers I had were BabyDuckHeads.


They were an early - and very bad - version of the pocket. This was in 1994.
