    Hmmm… well I always find it funny how people stare at me in public when I change my daughter. But there was one time that I was in a rest room, changing my daughter and the janitor came in. She tried to take the diaper to throw it away (she was emptying the garbage and I am guessing she figured this way she would not have the smelly diaper in her clean bathroom). So, I had to take it back from her and I was trying to explain that it was cloth but she was so confused I don’t think she was really listening. She just stood there shaking her head. I was hysterical after I left the bathroom. :)

    My husband is still figuring out prefolds and I noticed the other day as my toddler was running around that about six inches of the prefold was sticking out of the cover in the back….luckily she had not wet the diaper yet!

    My funny story is kind of related…it’s a potty training story. I have two little boys who are just over two years apart. Liam was starting potty training when Jack was still pretty small. We were having a pretty rough day, Liam had skipped his nap and was bouncing of the walls, and Jack was really fussy. I was busy trying to finish dinner and entertain Jack at the same time, when I noticed Liam was taking his time in the bathroom. I called to him, and he came out….with his soft potty seat around his neck! He had pulled it down over his head and gotten it stuck. I tried to pull it off, but couldn’t get it back up over his ears and he had started to really cry. I panicked for a minute and envisioned a rather embarrassing trip to the emergency room. I called my husband, and luckily he had the bright idea of rubbing lotion on his head so that the seat would slide off…and it worked. My sister was mad that I hadn’t gotten a picture.

    The first day we were using cloth, my husband didn’t realize the baby’s bum would be bigger and while trying to get her in her jeans, almost flipped her upside down! He was holding the top of the jeans and trying to “jiggle” her in…we moved up to the next size in jeans to accommodate the bulk of the diaper!

    Something funny while cloth diapering…when I took my youngest son to the Pediatrician for his 1 yr check up two weeks ago I had him in his Jaguar print blueberry minky diaper. The Dr commented on the diaper and said it made her think of that old Burt Reynolds centerfold where he was wearing a jaguar print loin cloth so to speak. I thought that was pretty funny.

  22. Melissa said...

    We use mostly BG 3.0’s. My daughter recently discovered how to undo velcro after practicing on her new shoes. Just last week, I went to get her up from naptime to find her in the crib with her diaper off. The diaper was a dirty diaper so the BM was everywhere! She had smeared it all over her crib and herself. Very gross. Luckily, my parents were visiting from out-of-state so my mom helped me clean up….it was definitely a 2-3 person job.

    I would love to try the Kiwie Pie fitteds and a thirsties cover. Our BG 3.0 aren’t absorbant enough sometimes and the velcro comes off easily. I also love the variety of prints!

    Well, it wasn’t funny at the time, but my hubby snapped on a diaper too loosely before bedtime and of course my dd woke in the middle of the night completely soaked and crying!

    Like mother like daughter I suppose!

    My funniest cloth diaper story happened yesterday! We are new users of wool soakers (on our 11 mo. old) and I had a prefold Snappi’d on my son inside the soaker. Somehow he undid the Snappi and then pooed but we didn’t notice until a big lump of you-know-what started sticking out of the leg opening of the soaker!!! Urgh! Who knew a year ago we’d be sitting in our living room on a Friday night laughing about poop!

    Something that I found funny (my husband didn’t) was the first time he had to deal with poop in a cloth diaper. We didn’t start out cloth diapering, but we started a few months ago. By then my son was a full fledged toddler with real poop, not tiny baby poop. My husband kind of freaked out when he had to deal with that. There was a lot of screaming and carrying on involved (he is a bit dramatic sometimes). My son (and I) thought it was VERY funny. He has since gotten used to flushing the contents of a diaper when necessary, but his initial reaction was pretty funny!

    The first time I tried a bum genius, I left the insert on the outside instead of stuffing it in. I knew so little then.

    When I read this week’s question I immediately thought of a post I did on my blog shortly after I started cloth diapering. http://prairiebirrdsnest.blogspot.com/2008/08/daddy-diapers.html
    Not only does it tell about my most humorous experience with cloth but it also tells about how I discovered Kelly’s Closet.

    Something funny, or rather embarassing that happened to me lately was when my 5 year old saw her little cousin wearing a disposable and asked me, loudly: “Mommy, are those the kind of diapers that should be illegal?” I try not to be preachy about cloth, but evidently I let something slip.

    My husband and I were changing the Imp on the back of our car (I was holding him while my husband did the changing – we’re safe, no worries) in a parking lot. B (my husband) was reaching for a clean diaper when the Imp decided to have a very watery bowel movement – off the end of the car all over B’s shirt. A woman was walking by at the time and she started cackling madly. It was truly hilarious. At least, it was to me. (:

    Funny…The first time my mother had to change my daughter's cloth diaper she couldn't figure out how to snap the cover….she was sure she was doing something wrong because it was soooo easy. When I changed her, she had a prefold pinned on, a kissaluv fitted snapped on & then a fuzzibunz shell snapped on over that….my Mom wanted to be sure she had covered all the bases.

    The funniest thing about this to me is that she cloth diapered 2 kids of her own & helped cloth diaper at least 4 of her siblings.

    Something funny… Having boys it pretty much goes without saying that you may get sprayed a few times if you are not careful. With that I can say that I never got sprayed with my little infants but not until they could reach down and “open” their prefold before I can get the wrap around them and proceed to “spray” me. But glad I use cloth so I can just use extras to clean up and not worry about wasting money.

    When I first started cloth diapering I really had no clue! I bought my pre-folds and my snappi’s but for some reason I only thought I needed ONE cover. This fact was only compounded by the fact that my daughters first cloth diaper was a blow out! lol. I will never forget my first day of cloth diapering I did not have one single success the whole day. I’m so glad I stuck with it though!

    I don’t really have any funny stories yet b/c I just started CDing last month. I will never forget the HUGE amount of time I have spent on the computer in the last 2 months researching everything I can to learn everything there is to know about CDing!

    Hmm, I don’t have anything too funny as we’ve only been at it for 4 months now. However, something I won’t ever forget when it comes to CDing is that people are super curious about cloth diaper so be prepared to give a demo anywhere!

    I don’t have any funny stories, because I’m still waiting for the bambino to get here in May, but I know I’ll never forget how overwhelmed I felt when I first investigated cloth diapering. I asked a friend for her recommendations and got back a tome! She had favorite diapers for each activity and hour of the day, lol. Now it doesn’t seem so complicated anymore, and I can’t wait to get started.

    I wanted to try my new diapers on a little baby to see if they would fit mine when it comes in May. I asked my friend if we could try them on her 5 week old. I guess our line of communication was crossed and she thought it was for the full meal deal. So her baby proceeded to poo and pee in my babies new diaper. I guess it was time to wash them anyways before my baby comes. They fit great!

    I have no funny stories…well, no funny HA HA stories. The funnniest thing that I have done with cloth diapers is over stuff them. At night time, the baby wears a fuzzi bun, with a prefold and insert stuffed into the back. The diaper, when folded around his body almost goes to his knees. It made a very funny picture :)

    I don’t really have a great, funny story about cloth diapers… the only thing I can think of is the first Sunday that I brought cloth diapers to church for my son (we started with cloth when he was 2.5 months old), I went to change his diaper in the mothers’ room. There was anothr mother in there and we had talked frequently before. I grabbed the diaper from my bag and laid my son on the changing table and the mother said, “Wow, that’s a big, serious diaper!” She’s right! It IS a serious diaper because it works so well!

    When my older son was about 18 months old, I woke him up one morning to find him quite a mess… apparently he had pooped during the night and had reached in his diaper and removed the "contents" that morning! There was poo smeared on the sheets, the wall, his clothes, and his hair! I was quite horrified & disgusted. I had to wash his hair in the sink since I was in a hurry & even pick it out from under his nails. Gross!!

  123. WiseChixMama said...

    Well, 1st I have to say those dipes look FANTASTIC & I have been wanting to try a Thirsties cover!!!

    2nd… well, I have 2 funniest cloth diapering moments… the 1st would be that I didn't tell my DH I was CDing. I started w/DD#2 when she was about 8 months old by buying some prefolds & wraps on the cheap from a mama that had a CD business but she was closing down to become a FT doula. I wanted to prove to DH that I COULD do it & that it wouldn't be too much extra work. I was so sick & tired of DD#2's constant rashes in sposies… they were SOOO terrible they would bleed & I had to use 1/2 a tube of generic Desitin on her every diaper change. Even the RX for it just made it worse! I kept crying my eyes out because I was so upset about it… after 2 DAYS in cloth, it was all gone :0)!!!

    So anyway, for 2 months he had no idea I was CDing.. I used them at home but not overnight because my DD would out-pee a PF in 30-45 mins during the day. I knew overnight was just not going to work w/a PF & we didn't have the means to buy the expensive fitteds, wool covers, etc. that everyone highly recommended for overnight. So it was not that I hid CDing by any means, DH just had no idea for 2 whole months! LOL Then one day we were driving down the road & Dd#2 started feeling feverish… so I told DH that we were going to have to go back home since she was not feeling well & had a fever. Know what he said?!?!? He said, "I wonder if it's those cloth diapers causing her fever!!!" He was SERIOUS too!!! ROFL!!!!! That was also his way of telling me he was on to the CDing.. & my reply to him was, "Gee, maybe… especially if she hadn't been wearing them for 2 MONTHS already!!!" LOL LOL Then I let him know that babies don't get fevers FROM cloth diapers!!!!! LOL

    Now story 2… w/DD#3 we started CDing from 2 weeks old. We stil use sposies at night because even she as a newborn is a super soaker. I thought for sure I would get to use CD's overnight because surely a tiny baby wouldn't pee like an older baby, but how wrong I was.

    Anyway, I put her in cloth 1st thing in the AM. One morning DH was changing her & I told him to just use a sposie because she had some generic Desitin on her (to protect her skin overnight in the sposie) and I didn't want that to get in our diapers (which DH did once before W#2, before I told him that cloth & diaper cream don't mix). Well, DH decided he was going to put her in a CD & not tell me. So we were eating breakfast & I patted the baby's bottom… my eyes bugged out of my head because I realized she had a fluffy behind. I raced upstairs to the bathroom where I usually change her… GULP, I noticed a diaper cream tube laying there & it was very sloppy messy w/cream on the outisde, which meant DH had used it!! So I held my breath when I opened up her diaper… what did I find?!?!? He had her in a BG OS pocket w/the insert laid in the inside of the diaper (NOT in the pocket!!) like a LINER!!!! The cream was all dried up on the insert, probably because MF can be very rough on the skin… I cringed because I thought DD would have some skin irritation or a blazing rash from it, but nope, her skin was fine & I managed to scrub the diaper cream off the insert, whew!!

    DD#1 (8 YO) walked into the bathroom & asked me why I was using Dawn & a toothbrush to scrub the insert… I told ehr what DY had done & she exclaimed, "You need a diaper LINER in the diaper when you use diaper cream… THAT is not a liner!!!" She cracked me up!! Dh was trying SOOOO hard to show how supportive he is of CDing, so I didn't tell him right away what he had done. I did mention later on that what he used goes INSIDE the diaper pocket & it wasn't a liner… I just wanted to make sure he didn't do it again because I was worried about DD's skin & I didn't want any CD's or inserts ruined.

    What a guy!! He went from blaming fevers on CD's to putting them on himself!! LOL

  124. Catherine said...

    I guess it’s not so funny as it is cute. I just remember being in playgroup with 5 other mothers (all with kids in cloth diapers). They would all run around the room with no pants on, and it was like seeing a sea of bight colors whizzing past.

  125. Michelle said...

    Am I on the right page?

    Well my 14 month old boy recently learned that it is HIlarious to take off his diaper and crawl around. It makes all his sisters start screaming and laughing.

    I velcro it back, he strips it off again. then crawls away as quickly as he can.

  126. The funniest story: hum really don’t have one–only been CD’ing for 10 months with #4, but people do think it’s pretty crazy that I do. I LOVE it, however and love the fact that his bum is rash free and love the sight of clean dipes on the line.

  133. One time after a changing a squirmy baby. My daughter Emma was walking around the house and my friend noticed her diaper seemed to be hanging awfully low, like around her knees. Turns out the Velcro on her bum Genius diaper had come undone on both sides and the only thing holding it on was her outfit. This was user error not product error. :)

    I may have already shared this. Its a little amusing and something I will never forget.
    One day, not too long after we started using cloth diapers, my 4 year old son noticed me holding a soiled pocket diaper that I had just taken off my daughter. “Did she go poo poo in her underwear like I sometimes do?” I stifled a laugh and said something about it being a diaper and she was allowed to do that but he wasn’t allowed to go in his underwear. He said, “Oh. Well it doesn’t really look like a diaper!”
    Now he knows better.

    Hmm… Funny??? I don’t know about funny, but I can comment about ironic! There are 6 Great-grandchildren in my husband’s family (soon to be 7- just waiting for our DD#3 to arrive- any day now!!!)under the age of 4 years old! Talk about a baby boom! We are the only CDing family… and our children (except the one we’re still waiting on) are both potty trained. CDing has definitely helped that process- they can feel the wetness, and they also don’t want to spoil their pretty pants! Our 3.5 yo and 2yo daughters even get up during naps and at night to use the potty. We were having a playdate with one of the cousins recently- aged between our 2 oldest- and she is still wearing disposable trainers all the time. Although she tried on our potty, she still soiled her pullup during their stay. My 2yo kept asking me “Why she pee in her pants, Momma? Why she not use the potty?” When I responded that she didn’t know how to, my older daughter said “We can teach her!”

    This isn't really funny made me pretty mad though. When we go to my moms I throw the diaps in her grocery bags to go home so I changed Rylen & Trayden (my almost 6 yr old) gets diaper duty lol (he takes said bag & hangs it on the door) well this time the lil booger took it outside to the TRASH! & of course the can was completely empty & I can't reach the bottom so I grabbed tray hung him upside down to grab the bag out & after doing so noticed the neighbors watching *blush* I don't think Tray will do that again

  141. I don’t have one memory in particular but I have to say but I have a basket that I keep about 20 diapers in in our living room and my boys love to play with them. They are always dumping them out and putting them back in. They love the bright colors. Lately we have been using this to practice our colors and counting.

    I don’t really have a funny cloth diapering story, but I do have something I”ll never forget, so I’ll share. My kids and I were riding with my Mom to visit my sister (7 hour drive) last Christmas. We were driving through Kansas City, downtown, where there are no exits and definitely no place to take a child to the bathroom, when my 4 year old announces that she needs to go pee. Bad. NOW. We tried top get her to say if she could wait, but soon she was crying. Desperate for a solution, I had Mom pull over on the shoulder, crawled into the back of the van, and got one of my 18 mo. son’s “nightime” diapers out of the bag. Then I got my daughter out of her seat and put the diaper on her. It took a minute or so of convincing her that this was the ONLY option, but she finally did go, and by the time she was done we were both laughing so hard we could hardly stop. Amazingly, the diaper held it all! (FuzziBunz stuffed with a double insert plus a Thirsties hemp doubler!) We got everything back to normal and went on. Thank goodness for cloth!

    A cloth diapering story I’ll never forget: In February when we flew home from Orlando my youngest had a very poopy diaper. Of course, I noticed about half way into the flight while the flight attendants where serving snacks and beverages. I had to wait a good 15 minutes before I was able to get around the drink cart to make my way to the back of the plane where the bathroom with the changing table was located. I finally got him cleaned up, the BG rolled and stuffed into my wet bag, and was headed back to my seat. I again had to wait for the drink cart to move far enough to the front of the plane so that I could get to my seat…I kind of felt like giggling because I was taking that very stinky, poopy diaper back to my seat with me and no one around me would know…

  151. Melissa said...

    Just last week, my daughter Olivia learned how to undo velcro by practicing on her new spring sandals. I put her down for naptime like usual. Around the time she normally wakes up I didn’t hear anything so I let her rest more….about 20 minutes after that I decide to check on her…she had unvelcroed her BG 3.0, taken off the diaper, had a BM, and rubbed it all over her crib, blanket, herself, wall, etc. It was a terrible mess!!

    It isn’t really a funny story, at least not funny ha-ha. More like funny to me that someone was having such a hard time wrapping their heads around the concept that the adorable pink thing my daughter was wearing was her diaper. We were at the pediatrician’s office for my daughters 9 month checkup (or maybe 6 months, but that isn’t really important). At their office, they have you strip the baby down to the diaper for weighing. I took all my daughters clothes off, picked her up, and started walking out to the scale. The nurse gave told me, rather rudely, that I needed to take off everything but the diaper, including the pink thingy she was wearing (her words). I explained that she wears cloth diapers and the pink thingy was indeed her diaper. She kept telling me how I needed to strip her down to her diaper, I kept explaining she was in her diaper, we use cloth. We went round and round for a couple minutes and finally I saw the light bulb go on. It was weird though because every other time I have been at the peds office, the nurses have always seen the cloth diapers and asked me how I like using them and commend me on it.

  164. Our funny CD story to share: We were in Target looking for cloth diapers i had seen online that were on clearance. I figured to check the store first to save on shipping charges. I asked an employee if they had any cloth diapers that I had seen them clearanced online. He says,” No. No one uses those things thats why they are clearanced online.” I had both boys with me. I was holding the baby and my 4 yr old was standing beside me. My 4 yr old proceeds to pull his brothers pants down and says “Yes we do, see my bubbas cloth tushy.” The guy was embarassed b/c he got really red in the face. My 4 yr old then says, “Lets go home mommy and buy the good diapers from a nice person.” Poor Target guy.

    Okay, so something sort of funny (at least to me) happened to me today pertaining to cloth diapers. I knit my son his first soaker this week and put it on him for the first time today. I wanted to gauge how well it was working, so I just put some babylegs on him with it. They did not match the soaker at all. I brought him downstairs and my husband was excited to see the baby and then picked him up. Then he held him under his arms, all the while the babe is kicking his legs and being happy, and my husband, in a very surprised and exaggerated voice said, “You look RIDICULOUS!”

    Apparently I dress my son ridiculously :)

    And I have to add this as well even though its not specific to cloth diapers. I only have two children so far, 4 yr. old boy and 7 month old girl. The other day we saw a commercial for a brand of disposable diapers and it had a baby boy wearing the diaper. My son said, “Why is the boy wearing a diaper? Only girls wear diapers and boys wear underwear!”
    I told him that babies don’t know how to go potty on the toilet and that he used to wear diapers too. He just shook his head and didn’t believe me!

    Before we started using cloth, there was a time when I picked DD#1 up from daycare, and went back to my classroom to finish up grades… she soiled her diaper, so I took it off of her and wrapped her little bottom in paper towels and a receiving blanket for the 45 minute trip home… and my little blessing was kind enough not to soil her makeshift diaper on the way home!

    My first attempt at fastening a prefold was quite hilarious (to me) – I could not, for the life of me, get my DS to stay still while I used the snappi – he was wandering around his room with half a diaper on.

  197. Funny stories…your stretching me on this one. One the rare occasion that I put disposables on my diaper she won’t let me put them in the trash because that isn’t where diapers go. They go in the diaper pail. So I have to throw them away when she’s not looking.

    Cute ooga print!

    Funny diaper story for ya. My son was learning how to put things away, and loves to help put away cloth diapers in the changing table. One day I went to put a clean Softbums diaper on him, and pulled out 2 socks, and the bread he had for snack in diaper basket! He got so carried away with “putting things away” he started putting just random things in the changing table baskets! Soo cute! So I just brushed off a few crumbs from the clean diaper and put it on him, lol.

    Another funny story is how my mom was visiting and decided to change Olivia. My mom (who used flats/prefolds & covers on all her kids) was in Olivia's room a long time. I went to check on her and she says she's just figuring out the diaper. I use mainly BG3.0's which seem so easy to me and she didn't want any help. Somehow, she put the diaper on w/o velcroeing it correctly. A little while later, the diaper was loose and flopping around inside her pants. Nothing leaked or anything but it was definitely funny!

    Another CD story that I will never forget…When I was potty training my oldest son, I walked into the bathroom to find him sitting on his little potty chair with his orange Fuzzi Bunz on his head. I guess he figured that since I wasn’t putting them on his bum, he should wear one on his head like a hat.

    At the doctors office we have to strip the baby down to diaper for weighing. I took all my daughters clothes off and was heading towards the scale when the nurse stopped me telling me I had to take that pink thingy off her. I spent a couple minutes going round and round with her before she finally understood that the pink thingy was indeed my daughters diaper.

  219. SarahMcD said...

    One of the things I will never forget about diapering baby boys is their “range” when peeing. My youngest managed to pee right down the front of my shirt.

  220. KayStarGoesRawr said...

    I just spent 20 minutes cracking up about some of these stories! I am definitely not buying anymore diapers that don’t SNAP. I don’t think I could handle a poop paint job.

    I don’t really have any FUNNY stories…but I do have one that makes me smile.

    Most people I talk to about using cloth are appalled and disgusted-I’ve even been ranted at and informed that disposable diapers are much BETTER for the environment and yada yada yada…But anyways..

    I’ve been using cloth diapers for six months now on my second baby. I was over at my MIL’s the other day and she was watching me change his diaper (which is a one size diaper) and she asked me how long I was going to use cloth diapers for.

    Huh? I was confused. I asked her why she thought I would quit using them if I love them so much?

    She proceeded to question me as to how big cloth diapers could go. Whaaat?!

    Seriously? I told her that the diaper I was holding could be worn by my 3 year old and she was shocked. I also told her that there is such a thing as special needs diapers for older and larger kids and adults, too! (She was a tad disturbed by this, actually)

    oh, and I will be telling all my friends about:

    My dh was left alone to change the baby one evening. I come home to the baby walking around the living room with a gigantic bubble butt. I asked dh what he put on him and he says “A drybees fleece night time diaper with the stuffers that was laying on top of it.” The funny part? There was 6 inserts laying with the stack of drybees and a prefold. Needless to say our son was leak free for a while. I still pick on DH about it too.

    this isn't nec related to cloth but he was wearing/being changed into cloth lol we all know to watch out when changing a boy so its the middle of the night & I start changing him when he starts peeing alllllll over his own face I grabbed a cloth wipe & cleaned him up while hes screaming & im laughing saying don't go peepees while im changing you

We don’t have issue with diaper rash ect. So I change my sons diaper and put on a prefold to show how easy it really is. Lo and behold I completely forget to put on a cover. So she was holding my little one and talking and he soaks her shirt. I couldn’t believe it! So much for winning her over huh?

    Oh, I took both kids to a new pediatrician. The nurse commented that she never sees cloth diapers these days.

    Then 2 minutes later, she made a big deal of pointing out that we can’t throw away dirty diapers in the bin in the examining room. If we need to throw out a dirty diaper, we should let the nurse know and she’ll give us a baggie for it and direct us to the proper waste bin.

    I started laughing, then she looked at the kids again and said “oh wait, you probably won’t throw away cloth, will you?”

    Yeah, not throwing away my cloth, thanks.

    I was in a diaper store a while ago with my then 16 month old. A pair or expectant parents were there, looking bewildered at all the options. The father said “Are you sure about this? I have no idea where to start.” Then my DD walked over to the shelf, announced “Bum!” and proceded to put a display model BG on a doll. “OK” said the soon to be dad, “I guess it’s not THAT complicated.”

    I was at a hockey game with my son’s team and one of the moms asked me if I had some wipes and I said no. She looked at me like I was crazy (after all I have a 7 month old and a diaper bag how can I not have wipes). So, I told her we use all cloth and she just looked at me for a second and said “Well, good for you I guess.” I had to try so hard not to laugh at her.

    I’m sure this has happened to everyone and has several times to me so far. After taking off a poopy diaper, I placed it at the end of the changing table and then my little baby girl starts kicking frantically and gets poop all over her feet and legs! Those are always fun!

    This is a little amusing and something I will never forget.
    One day, not too long after we started using cloth diapers, my 4 year old son noticed me holding a soiled pocket diaper that I had just taken off my daughter. “Did she go poo poo in her underwear like I sometimes do?” I stifled a laugh and said something about it being a diaper and she was allowed to do that but he wasn’t allowed to go in his underwear. He said, “Oh. Well it doesn’t really look like a diaper!”
    Now he knows better.

  313. I was out shopping with my 2nd child and my 1st was at one of his first days of preschool. It was like freedom! I decided to change my son’s diaper even though he didn’t have any bm…thinking I had two cloth diapers in my bag. Then we went out for lunch and there was a little package in the diaper…but no diaper to put on my newly 2 year old. I had to put paper towels from the bathroom on him for the 15 minute ride home. I just didn’t want him to wreck his carseat! We got home and out of the car and he went before we got into the house. I was so thankful that he waited. Now I try to keep one disposable in the car as a back up just in case it’s needed.

    Oh! I finally a remembered a sort of funny story. So, my son likes to grab at himself during diaper changes. This, of course, is gross when he’s poopy. Well, one day he had a huge poop and I was wiping him up. I was so focused on the bum that I didn’t notice he was playing with his poop like it was paint. It was so gross. He had it all over his hands and arms and legs. I don’t know how I managed to not notice he was doing this. I had to basically spray him off in the bath, he was so disgusting. Now I always give him a toy when I change him to keep his hands occupied!

But when I wanted to use wool… he drew the line! He told me that he wouldn’t even hold our son if he wasn’t using a “real cover.” So I just didn’t tell him when I put the wool on :)

    A cloth diapering moment I’ll never forget: When flying to Orlando in February, we arrived and were attempting to get off the plane. However, my son’s car seat was stuck in the airline seat and it was taking several flight attendants to help in get it out. I was holding my then 11 month old son and realized he was very wet. I proceeded to change his diaper (A BumGenius 3.0) right on the row of seats since we were the only ones still on the plane. The flight attendant then offered to hold him while I helped my older son. She noticed the cloth diaper and was impressed with it. I know it’s not really a funny story, but it is a cloth diapering moment I will never forget. Oh, and we finally did get the carseat out – and learned that on the return flight we should use a seat belt extender to avoid the same problem from happening again.

    This is a funny story pertaining to sposies instead of cloth diapers. I just recently started cloth diapering, so I don’t have many stories yet. Anyway… My twin sister was up visiting last spring, and I had just taken my son Liam out of the tub when my little guy, Jack, wanted to be nursed. I asked her to put Liam’s diaper and pajamas on for me while I nursed Jack. She got the diaper on him, and went to find his pajamas. I was watching Liam run around in the living room, and noticed something was different…my sister had managed to put his diaper on backwards! When I laughed at her, she claimed it was because she didn’t have her glasses on…yeah right.

    My funny story was actually repeated again this morning at my daughters one year checkup. We have to strip baby down to diapers for weighing. I did so, only to have the nurse tell me I needed to remover the blue pants. I explained those blue pants were actually her cloth diaper. Again, the nurse seemed confused. Finally she understood that it was a cloth diaper and they come in many colors. Again, I had the oppurtunity to explain cloth diapers. I know cloth diapers aren’t exactly mainstream (yet!) but I would expect at a pediatricians office that sees I don’t know how many babies, I wouldn’t be the only one using cloth.

    I don’t know how I forgot about this story. I decided to take my 9 month old baby to the mall with me. I went to a clothing store and picked out some clothes to try on in a dressing room. Well, while I was in there I noticed DD had started leaking out of her CD. I didn’t want to wait to change her until after I had tried things on and checked out. So, I decided to try and change her in her stroller. BAD IDEA! Getting the diaper off was the easy part, but then she started to squirm all over and up the back of the stroller. It was impossible! It was a small room without anywhere to sit or lay her, so I ended up throwing her over my shoulder and tried to put the diaper on her one handed, which is reeeally hard! She was screaming her head off, goodness knows what the people in the store were thinking. Diaper somewhat on and back in the stroller, I gave her a juice bottle and everything was fine. Never doing that again!

    Funny thing that happened with cloth diapers: My daughter is 22 months old & our granddaughter is 18 months old, when my son changes his daughter at our house, my daughter will bring him a cloth diaper & try to get him to put it on his baby. She wants her neice to have "REAL" diapers too.

  388. Amanda said...

    Well, two small funny things…

    1.) When DD was in the diapers w/ Velcro closures she figured out how to take them off pretty early on so I started keeping pants/shorts on her all the time…less than a week later she figured out how to un-do the Velcro tabs under the pants! We have since switched to snap closure diapers.

    2.) If I change DD on the floor instead of the changing table she pulls a fast one as soon as I have removed the diaper and takes off through the house. She loves to run around in her Nude-y Booty.

  392. I lent my small size of Fuzzi Bunz to my friend in Canada but then forgot. Several months later I received a good size package in the mail from her and being from Canada it had the customs form on the outside which detailed what was inside. I noticed that is said it included $200 worth of diapers. I was so excited, only to discover they were the ones I had lent to her earlier. Yet some how it was still fun to have them back.

    I do not have any funny stories to share of my own yet, as I’ll be a FTM come August. But my sister who might actually be having her baby today is a mom of now five and has used cloth on all of them. From her I have heard many interesting stories, including her oldest (now 7) who came in the room mid diaper change, decided the smelly diaper could not wait for Mama to finish attaching a new diaper and went and put it in the toilet himself. Did not dunk it, just left it there. But at least he tried. lol That was about two years ago. So I’m sure by now, he’s an expert.

    My daughter has a habit of sticking her hand down the back of her pants. With cloth diapers, it’s easier for her to get her hand down there. One evening, I went to change her and noticed she had poo on her hand and shirt, and realized she had stuck her hand down her diaper again. My husband had been holding her, and he had it all over the back of his shirt. As I was laughing at him, I noticed I had it on my shirt too. Ick!

    Hmm, I think the thing I will remember the most about cloth diapering is not really that funny, but it just confirmed to me why we do it! This was when my now almost 3 y/o son was about 24-26 months and still in diapers, but he has spoken really well ever since he started talking.

    Well, we had gone somewhere for two nights, and we were going to have a lot going on, so I decided to just use disposables. The kids did great, but as soon as we got home, my son ran to his room and said, “May I please have a COMFY diaper now?” and pointed up to where his cloth nappis were. :o)

    Let’s see…there is this one pair of pants that my daughter can only wear if she’s in a cloth diaper – they definitely fall off otherwise (she’s got a skinny butt). We were at a lacrosse game when I had to do an emergency diaper change and all I had in the car was some disposables (my emergency stash)…she spent the next hour running around holding her pants up – very amusing to watch!

    Whenever my baby had diarrhea I had to get a sample in a cup to send to the lab. Well, unfortunatly she didn’t poo at the doctors office, but on the way home I heard her poo grunting noises. I ended up pulling over and scraping what little of the diarrhea poo that was solid into the cup. These are things you never think of yourself doing before you have kids!

    My story isn’t funny, but I’ll never forget my first “extended” outing with Logan. When he was two weeks old, we were downtown and I made a pit-stop at the Nordstrom mama/baby lounge to change his diaper. The next mom to come in (and the first new-mom to new-mom interaction I had) also used cloth! It was a special moment :)

    Since I don’t really have many stories because we are so new at cloth diapering, I will spare posting the SAME story again.

    But I will never forget when I just had my baby girl last September and my brother and his wife came to visit from Florida. They brought some gifts for us and one of them was a package of the Gerber Birdseye Prefolds that I had put on my baby registry. My SIL told us that my brother had been grossed out by the thought that I was going cloth diaper. But she pointed out to him that I would probably use them as burp cloths.
    I said she was right, I was going to use them as burp cloths and before I could say anything further about thinking of actually cloth diapering, my Mom jumped right in with the explanation. She was all excited and ran to the baby’s closet to get the one Mommy’s Touch Pocket Diaper that I owned. My Mom was more excited about it than I was!
    The look on my brother’s and SIL’s faces were priceless. They couldn’t believe that I was actually going to use cloth!

    I started cloth diapering with 3 KCKOnes I made and a dozen prefolds. My mom saw that I was not going to give up, so she purchased some supplies to make me and my sister some more KCKOnes. I was EVER SO Excited! A few days after she started sewing, she sent 3 diapers home with me. After laundering them, I was so excited to try the new dipes on my bambino. I couldn’t wait for her to need a change. Finally the moment arrived, and I grabbed the first diaper. It was chocolate suede cloth inner with pastel yellow pul–made me think of a sunflower. Something was not right! I needed to stuff this diaper through the welt pocket opening, but the pocket was sewn shut! I grabbed the 2nd diaper she sent home with me, and tried to open it to stuff it when I realized the velcro had been sewn on after the diaper was made instead of before, so the welt pocket itself was able to open, but the velcro was sewn through both layers of pul and inner, so I could not stuff it. And the 3rd diaper she sent home was made the same way. I had a good laugh while the babums rolled over and crawled away until I could compose myself and get her another diaper on. I gave my mom a hard time about it and asked her not to make any more from her own improvised pattern.

    We had a cloth diaper workshop for our Le Leche League group and I found it kind of funny how the non-cloth diapering moms just could not get past the idea of touching dirty diapers and yet there have been several conversations on laundry due to blowouts with their sposies!

    We were at my SIL’s house for my nephew’s birthday. My BIL was talking about how difficult changing diapers (disposables) is. Now even after four months of using cloth Hubby still found cloth diapers (prefolds) difficult to change. So I asked BIL if he wanted to change my daughter informing him that she wears cloth. He looked at us, incredulously and said, “Why?!?!”

    Funny diaper story. Yesterday, we received a package in the mail containing our most recent purchase from Kelly's Closet. I bought the Blueberry onesize cover in cow print. As soon as my 22 month old saw it she grabbed it & wouldn't let go. I changed her into it immediately. At every change for the rest of the day she insisted I put it back on her. She LOVES it!!!

    My daughter just learned to undo the velcro on her BG 3.0….so I definitely have a funny story about her “playing” during naptime with BM. It was ALL over and by far extremely gross to clean up.

    My funniest story happens when I go to the peds office. We have to strip baby down to dipes for weight checks. The nurses always insist I take of the (insert color) thingy – baby must be in diaper. I always seem to end up going round and round with the nurses that we use cloth diapers and that whatever color she has on her bum is indeed her diaper.

    I’ve been trying to think up a new story for each day…this is getting tough! Last year when I started considering cloth diapering I did a lot of research before mentioning anything to my husband. Once I had made up my mind that I was going to take the plunge and do it, I finally told him. The look on his face was priceless. He was surprised, a bit grossed out and not fully trusting that I would stick to it. He kept asking “what do you do with the poop?” Obviously, I did keep up with it, in fact, it’s an addiction now…He loves to tease me about my funny collection of diapers. He seems to get weekly shipments of Legos he’s purchased off e-bay to feed his hobby/addiction, so he really doesn’t have a leg to stand on when talking to me about my cloth diapers.

  485. Aisha said...

    I don’t have a funny story per se. other than it’s been funny watching my husband learn the different diaper systems (including fitteds, AIO, and pockets)and how to stuff DD’s nighttime diapers. After several misssteps, I think he has the hang of it now.

    My 2-year old is very opinionated and loves to choose her own diaper…which is great, usually. This morning she apparently did not approve of my diaper selection and I turned around to find that she had taken off her pants and diaper and was waiting for the RED diaper.

    My nephews have tried to throw away our diapers – and they look pretty grossed out when I tell them that we keep them!

    And everyone always asks (almost in a whisper) “What do you do about the POO??”

    I’m not sure what they think, but it makes me chuckle!!

  499. MeghanT said...

    I thought of another story that I will never forget
    .
    I have been trying to find supplies to sew some of my own fitted diapers. I was talking to a (single) friend (with no children yet) on the phone one day and telling her about how I was going to make my own cloth diapers. I told her about some fabric that I found online that I thought was really cute and I couldn’t wait to make some diapers out of it.
    She laughed and said, “I can’t get over the fact that you are spending so much time trying to find cute and nice fabric for your baby to poop in!”

    That is when I realized how obsessed I am over cloth diapers and how ridiculous it sounds to other people. But I don’t care!

    So I find it amazing how baby poops can define how well my day will go. When my baby poops, there is no mistaking it. She gets that strained, grunty look that is usually followed by high pitched and distressed squealing. Then there is the mad rush to the changing table to get that poop OFF her bottom! The harder the poop, the louder and longer she squeals. This morning she had three poops, very evenly spaced throughout the morning, each bigger than the last. By the time I got her calmed down from one poop, she would poop again and the process would start all over. It wasn’t until after her 2pm nap that everything kind of settled down. Phew!
