Ummmm, I think "adult babies" buy them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'm not sure why (maybe because only the flat folds will fit them?). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grossedout.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="gross"> I'm almost 100% sure, though, that it's not diapering mamas buying them!!

EWWW.... Both the thought of "adult babies" AND the thought of someone paying $76 for 6 pre-folds is just bizarre to me!<br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">But hey - who am I to judge!</span>

I was going to ask the same thing! I saw some with prints one time that went for a lot of $$ I thought about "adult" babies, but I'm not sure. That is soooo gross:puke

Even so, isn't there anywhere cheaper to get flatfolds? Sheesh, buy some towels or something at that price! Silly adult babies!<br><br>

Doesn't she say in the auction that she used them on her sons 20 years ago? The thought of "adult babies" is just revolting :puke and I needed to go and check :LOL<br>
Still, I can't believe someone is going to pay 76 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> or more for these ancient flatfold!!

No, it wasn't diapering Mamas bidding on them.<br>
I looked at the bid history and then at the history of the bidders, and they all mainly buying the Curity diapers and several of their winning auctions were listed as "private". :puke

Hi<br><br>
Curity stretch guaze diapers are acutally flats (not prefolds) and as far as flats go they are really cool! They are also very hard to find. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I got a bunch from my MIL and she used them more than 20 years ago.<br><br>
I would never pay that much for them but I would buy more if I could find them at a reasonable price.<br><br>
I kinda think this is legit and not a weird fetish thing.
