Glad you managed to survive the cloth diaper era.
I did the cloth diapers for a year. The soaking, the boiling, the washing, the freezing on the washing line, chasing off the sheep that tried to eat them when they were on the line, the black coal dust making them dirty again before the kid had a chance to wear them - sheesh. Nah I didn't use the plastic pants - those are horrible. The next 2 kids had pampers!
