    My son and daughter in law used them for their first child who is now 17 months. They used them for most of the first year and now are using throw aways. There is a trend to go back to cloth diapers with the snaps and they are very expensive in the stores to buy so making them would be a great idea. There is also a trend to use soakers over the diapers so I made several of them for my young grandson while they were using cloth.

    Let us hope more young people will become more concerned about the environment their children will have to live in. These new ones are terrific.

    I used cloth diapers when we were at home and disposable diapers when we were out and about. I remember three clotheslines of diapers swaying in the breeze. Romanticising it for sure, but it worked for us as we did not have much extra money those days.

    I used cloth on my kids and covered with the "plastic pants". I found them very convenient - running low on diapers? - do a load of wash! Much easier than constantly dragging home huge boxes of product and then carrying the same quantity (plus a little more!) to the garbage. As a bonus, I have all of these cotton diapers to use as nice soft cloths yet today.

    My kids are fully grown now and I don't have any grandchildren yet. My daughter will use eco-friendly products so would be thrilled with a gift like yours. My son - hmmm - what will my future daughter-in-law do?

    I agree with all that folks said above. The parents will know if that is the way they want to go. And, if it is what they want they will be thrilled that you are offering to make them for them!

    Please let us know what happens!

    When I had my kids 27 yrs. ago, I started out w/ disposable and quickly switched to cloth to save money. I was a stay at home Mom, so one more load of wash/week wasn't a big deal. I used Rubber Duckie brand outer covers, both the velcro closure and the full panty, at night. I'm not sure if this company is still in existence. It worked real slick, just fold the diaper in thirds, lay in the outer layer and velcro closed. They were all washable and came in fun bright colors. I still have many of those cloth diapers to this day, they are wonderful for cleaning: windows, cleaning in the bathroom, etc.

    The diaper covers are a bit of work. The liners need to be made thick so they do not soak through. My neice uses over plastic ones as decorative panties. Good luck. Pegeth
    Each project adds to my stash of knowledge. Love sharing the results with anyone who'll look.

    Thats what I did. My daughter used them and really liked them on her first and intends to use them again on the next little one. Grandma (me) sewed with love and daughter liked saving both money and our environment.

    One of my favorite subjects. I would make some and every young mother you can... I am so happy to have convinced a young mom recently. I live in a low income rural area and the attitude about washing diaper is ridiculous. I will be helping this new mom make diapers this spring, as soon as their septic system is fixed. She wants the fancy ones of course. I prefer the folded rectangle with PUL diaper covers. BUT, at least I got one more mom to try it... Good luck.
