History of diapers

First, let’s flashback to the days before disposables. Did you know that babies in Elizabethan times, for instance, were wrapped in cloths that were changed so infrequently days of waste could accumulate? Ugh. Meanwhile, in some tropical environments, babies are not covered at all and just run about naked.

The diapers we know of evolved in the early 1800s. They weren’t typically washed often, but at least dried before reapplying. In the early 20th century, parents did start boiling diapers before using them again. In the 1940s parents could turn to a diaper service. Around this time too the first disposable diapers were introduced. In 1946 a US housewife named Marion Donovan presented a model of a disposable diaper with a cloth inserted into a shower curtain plastic. In the 1950s pre-folded diapers were invented, and the first snap-on diaper came to be nationally distributed.

There have been many improvements since then. Today, large distributors of cloth diapers are also around offering an alternative to plastic disposables.
