any modern cloth diapering mama will be quick to tell you how far reusable diapers have come throughout the years. stay-dry inners, diapers that grow along with baby, fabrics such as PUL that have replaced the need for plastic pants. and, since the birth of the snappi fastener, the need for pins is now non-existent.
unless, of course, a mama such as myself heads out of the house for the day with a stack of prefolds, a pull-on wool cover, and a snappi left behind, stuck to the living room couch. cloth diapering rule #236: if you're going to be careless with your snappi, you'd better be hanging out with a friend who keeps pins on hand. thanks for the loan, molly.
i do think this is a very good look though, don't you? there's something so... sweetly vintage about a prefold and pins. it's charming. it's authentic. and once i got past my phobia about poking my wee little baby, i really started appreciating this simple diapering method. so much so that i might just pick up a few pins of my own.
yeah, he digs it. you know what they say in the world of fashion--everything comes back around.
