4. When people go to your home and see your stash they say “Oh, I didn’t know you ran a cloth diapering business”.

5. You have holiday-themed cloth diapers

6. You can correctly identify various brands of  cloth diapers when a bit of fluff peeks out from other babies’ pants in public.

7. Your child’s name is embroidered on several diapers in your stash.

8. When people ask what to get your baby for a holiday or birthday you gift, you send them a link to your cloth diaper registry.

9. You can correctly decode the following: AIO, AI2, PUL, RLR, CD, CPF, H&L, BG, and FB.

10. You belong to and actively participate on multiple cloth diapering forums.


If you can answer “YES” to 3-5 of the above you have a mild case of cloth diaper addiction.

Successful treatment for cloth diapering addiction is limited. In fact the only known cure is for your child to be potty trained. In which case some addicts will have another baby just so they can continue to use cloth diapers.
