This flashback goes way, way back, in my nappy-wearing days (yes, that is me in the picture, nevermind the year it was taken!).
The reason why I dug up my bare-beehind photo is this old safety pin I found at the bottom of my sewing box. It is around 5 cm long and has a plastic closure, shaped like a piggy's head. The pin has Chicco written in the back and is one of the safety pins my parents would use to secure a plain cloth nappy in the days Pampers wasn't a household name yet.
According to my mother the disposable nappies were introduced in our country when my brother and I no longer needed any. So at the end of each day our appartment was crowded with drying laundry, most of it cloth nappies...
