I'll admit I used to think plastic pants were optional with cloth diapers. Obviously, being on this site, I know better now, but this does bring to mind something I've noticed: when have you ever seen, in a movie, TV show, etc. - particularly in cartoons - cloth diapers being worn with plastic pants? Just tonight I was watching the Christmas movie Elf, and the main character is shown as a baby in an orphanage being put to bed in a cloth diaper, but no plastic pants. Maybe perhaps the tag on the diaper is a plot point, but still. Seeing they're so essential, why are plastic pants never shown?
