Flashback Friday

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...

See more flashbacks at Christopher and Tia's blog.


  1. I couldn't imagine washing diapers. Baby doo smells so dang bad! Even when my Akita was a pup, if she made a mess on her blankie, we jst threw it away. God Bless our parents =)

  2. O, take fotke pa tudi pri nas obstajajo - celo dvorišče polno sušečih plenic :))
    Hja, saj pravijo, da je bilo bolj zdravo. In bolj ekološko.

    Sponkica je pa lep spomin! :)

  3. What a fun thing to find! I think I used to have pins like that laying around from my cloth diaper wearing days :) I love the piggy. My mom used cloth when I was really little because Pampers were so expensive, but by the time I was a young toddler, she switched because, with three kids, she didn't want the hassle of washing all of those diapers anymore! Great flashback!!!

  4. OH! I have one of my baby diaper safety pins too!!!! Mine is all rusted, and in pretty bad shape, but its a yellow duck, and I hold it so close to my heart.
