  1. cool pic of the frat boys, including my granddad’s first cousin (Mosely)..neat

  2. And you ran the pin through your hair to make it go through the diaper easier. Idk why, but it worked though lol.

  3. My child wore cloth diapers until he went to daycare when he was 1. Cloth was cheaper and easy in the skin.

  4. Thank goodness it isn’t that difficult to cloth diaper these days! We love our cloth. 🙂

  5. Our kids were born in 1963 and 1966 and I never used plastic on them.

  6. Brittany Young this was cloth diapers back in the day. and sticking yourself was just gonna happen when trying NOT to stick the baby. 🙂

  7. I remember , used cloth with my 3 .

  8. Takes two Auburn fans.

  9. Oh yeah! Stuck myself several times…thanks little brother’s. .

  10. That was a swuirming baby and a cloth diaper…one we had to wash, dry and reuse. The safety pins were tricky. DO NOT hold the pin in your mouth while changing a diaper. Stick them in soap, the pillow or your dress front, but never the mouth. Babies mimic what they see the mother do.

  11. I remember that some of the diaper pins had ducks or other characters/animals on the head of the pin. And who could forget those awful plastic pants that went over the cloth diapers?

    1. There’s no forgetting those old rubber pants! The way they used to turn hard and crunchy after many washings and use, and the pink stains that happened around the elastic leg holes and on the seat of the pants! Pee-ew, boy, did they ever stink!

  12. I never did it but new people who did

  13. Stuck myself more times then the diaper lol

  14. Bet that was a hard job.

  15. More stabbed fingers using the pins. Better we got stick than baby.

  16. diapered all three of mine this way

    1. Diapered my two this way. Once, after my own were grown with children of their own, I got called into the church nursery, because one baby had cloth diapers, and I looked to be someone who might know what to do with them. 🙂

  17. Used diaper pins on all 4 of mine

  18. Diaper pins were nothing compared to what was inside the diaper.

  19. that wasn’t that long ago. my oldest is 34 and I put cloth diapers on him.

  20. They are teaching how to diaper a baby at Auburn??

  21. I remember! Cloth diapers and rubber pants! Babysat growing up, changed many a baby that wore them, then raised my own kids in the same (1980’s through to the mid 90’s)!

    Had two in diapers the whole time, two diaper pails on the go at all times… one for wet-wets, the other for dirties, and diapers and rubber pants hung from my clothesline 2-3 days out of every week!

    Also remember when my kids toilet trained but still had to wear diapers at night. Double diapers and rubber pants!

    Yuppers… swiping those diaper pins through my hair before pinning the diapers, and pulling rubber pants off and on at every diaper change!
