When I first got into using diapers I was 12 and could kind of fit into the Goodnights that existed at that time. But I really wanted the plastic backed diaper feel, so I kept looking for alternatives. When I got a little bigger, I couldn't really fit into the Goodnights any more and I needed a new system. My solution was to get 2 of the Pampers size 6 and tape them together end to end to make a diaper that would be big enough. Oh yeah, this was in 1995 or so. I used white duct tape so that they looked kind of legitimate. I'd also have to use duct tape in place of the regular tapes to make it fit. Eventually though, I wasn't satisfied with that either, so I made a larger one made from 4 Pampers size 6. I had to use scissors to modify the center, but it basically worked and could actually deal with a full wetting.
All of this is obsolete now that I've found things like the Molicare, Bambinos, etc. But that was my system for like 4-5 years. Even if I did go back to my old system, the baby diapers of today all seem to be cloth backed which sucks. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else did something like this. I didn't really find any sort of online community until later, so this was my plan in a vacuum of information. Did anyone else ever try this?
