And have you lived and learned since then? I know I have! I sold DS's first stash and am building a new one thanks to all the here.

My first CD was a Didee Snug...I've lived and learned.

My first was Sweet Cheeks followed by Comply and Wee Washables. I am still amazed I managed to stick with CDing after using those.

My first were actully a sample package that I still use. It had a Bumkins AIO, fb w/ JB, prorap, prefold., etc etc.
The only thing I sold was the Bumkin cover b/c the vent on the back always leaked during naps (I guess my ds was too wiggly and made it slide up).

I made myself some contours (a copy of a "diaper" I had in my hope chest from age of 12) I made these out of flannel. Then I thought I was so smart to add elastic and wm brand velcro. THEN I got online and was like


my first purchased diaper was a bunch of prefolds/bummies and I bought them the next size up so she could grow into them. rolleyes: on a whim I wanted to try a fitted with snaps and purchased a pumkin patch from "from the heart" I think. I was so amazed.

I got myself a snap press and never looked back.

I got a bunch of different styles from www.orangestarfish.com before ds2 was born; it was my first time using cloth and I wanted to experiment. I also got one dozen infant cpfs. For the different styles, I think they were all unknown wahms.....

I learned that I loved fitteds and aio's best, and switched to that system

Stiff as a board organic cotton prefolds from Ecobaby. I think they've changed since then.

My first WAHM dipe? A Cowboy print SOS. Still have it, still in love.

Homemade flannel Better Baby Diapers (yellow), and soe made with the same BBD pattern, only using Gerber birdseye prefolds for the inner & red & white stripe flannel for the outer. K-mart cheapo vinyl pants.

I made more BBD's for the girls, using terrycloth for the soakers, and then someone gave me a stash of hideously-sewn homemade pinnable contours, and a bunch of those diaper service AIO's with the snap tape. I acquired a few Bumkins wraps somewhere along the line, too, and a stash of pull-on nylon pants (mostly with the polyurethane peeling off!)

Flats that we got from Sears. The surprising thing about it all is that we still use them. It seems like I'm the only one liking fitteds, everyone else looking after DD likes the flats. Folded up in a wrap, the flats are quite trim and easy to use.

Mine were some Country Comfort diapers off ebay. They were really not bad....held in poop great, just not quite as absorbant as I would like. I did not sell them until ds outgrew them.

I did tons of research, and my first purchase was an Angel Wrap quick dry AIO with alligators on it. I couldn't decide which size my DS needed, and Amy was so nice to send me an L and an XL to try on.

I am very attached to that diaper now, and quite a few Angel Wraps. I was/am very happy with my first purchase!

My first were some Darla Peekabears in Newborn size, and some small Bodinks.
Man I wish I could find some more of both

that was 21 years ago, and then came my first fitted in 1999 called the Cloud 9 Softie! Woah, what a difference. We love the Cloud 9 Softies still.

My first diaper (8 years ago) was a diaperap from the one step ahead catalog! Plus these flannel contours. I only used cloth during the day cause they were so unabsorbant that I'd never dare let them nap in them! LOL
My first WAHM dipe was a Cloud 9. Those continue to be my favorite other WAHM dipes.

I used a diaper service the first 6 months w/ ds, but at my shower before he was born I was given some dappi fitteds... they never seemed to fit him well so I never really used them.
Other than those, the first dipes I officially owned were some Kissaluvs all terry fitteds. They were so fantastic! I was a loyal Kissaluv owner since then, although I ended up trying and using many other styles and brands of dipes.

A dozen UBCPFs, and a few BSWW covers, all still in use. My first WAHM order were a few beautiful Angelwrap AIOs, I will cry the day she grows out of them.

flannel/terry contours from born to love with green earth wraps and snappis. I sold those almost immediately and bought kushies basics and a few different wraps and I ended up using those with bumkins for a long time - i loved them. then I switched to all in ones about a year ago. tried a bunch till I settled on what I use now - fmbg, bbh, kushies ultras, and bumkins

I'm Andrea - I have three boys - 12 year old twins & an 11 year old
