Day and night for wetting, between 3 and 4. I suffered from encopresis till I was 11 but diapers were only used for pooping accidents till I was 6 or 7 and at the time I resented diapers because they were humiliating, which is what my parents were going for.

Dear AB (giggles),

Such a wonderfully told recounting of your family history of diapering. Thanks so much for sharing that with us. I'm a detail-oriented person and so I very much appreciate the level of detail you go into here. It really helps me form a fairly clear picture of your upbringing and your family's "diapering dynamic," which I think is quite adorable. Forgive me if I'm trodding on "intimate" ground here, but I'm wondering what it was like to be diapered as you were older, say on trips, etc., esp. by an adult. Was it a tender diapering session? Were you spoken to in even semi-intimate (child-like) terms? Or was it more or less "matter of fact," not necessarily cold but not tender, either? Was being diapered by someone you trusted an event you looked forward to?

In my imagination I can see both parties enjoying the experience, with perhaps some innocent fun, such as tickling, mild teasing, perhaps, or even infantile play, such as "Mommy's going to touch your nose!" kind of thing going on. I guess that's the gist of my question, was being diapered something you looked forward to? My interest in knowing about this comes from my interest in simply knowing, perhaps because of my lack of any memory of being diapered, and I'm interested in knowing as much as I can about how someone who wasn't necessarily considered to be "AB" experienced having another person put them in diapers, esp. as it relates to cloth diapers with the act of pinning, etc. Also, feel free to respond off-thread if you're not sure this content fits in with the current discussion. :D

I'm sorry that when this was posted I did not see your questions.

Having grown up wearing "just-in-case" diapers from before my memory starts I assumed everyone on trips and at special events was also diapered.

As I have shared for years, my first clear memory was of my mother changing my diaper on the meadow at Renaissance Faire during Memorial Day weekend 1968 shortly before I turned 4. While I was on a changing pad on my back the actress playing the Queen looked down at me and remarked "That child will avoid the privies". Later that day Mom changed the diaper of my older sister Penny who was 9. She was changed in front of our tent in the Faire Participants camping area away from the paying publiic. In that area I saw all the younger "Faire Brats" being diapered and older kids either being diapered or changing themselves.

Just before I turned 8 our family was on a long car trip. We stopped for lunch at the marvelous Harris Ranch restaurant on I-5 near Fresno, CA. Mom and all my sisters were in the ladies' room, which had 2 changing tables. Penny was changing our youngest sister Missy who was 3 and large for her age. Meanwhile Mom was changing Ruth who was 5 and toilet trained but with a tiny over-active bladder. I was standing there with a wet diaper waiting to be changed. I was shorter than average for my age. A girl who was my height but who looked younger came in by herself and entered a stall. I was on the changing table so Mom could remove my pinned gauze diaper as the girl came out of the stall to wash her hands. I was shocked that apparently she was not diapered. The girl smirked at me. After she left I asked Mom why the girl was not diapered. Mom answered some kids were not provided diapers. I felt sorry for that girl.

Neither Mom nor Penny ever used baby talk when diapering me, but did so with Missy because she still was a baby and she liked being spoken to that way. I would describe those diapering sessions for me as being tender yet business-like, which I liked. In our family diapers were simply another form of panties.

I never resisted being diapered, but I doubt I looked forward to it, except when I had been wet long enough my diaper was uncomfortable. Even then I believed that Mom made a game with Missy because she was an actual baby and enjoyed it. Later Missy preferred being treated like a big girl. Missy never gained night control. Eventually I was taught to change Missy for bed. We loved each other, so during changes I treated her as a big girl.

That was a time when Pampers were used on trips by many families while washable diapers were used at home. My family was anti disposable. I was used to pinned gauze diapers. Until I reached puberty and was taught to change my own diapers I assumed every kid had her diapers changed by someone else. I knew Penny started changing herself at puberty when she reverted to bedwetting. I hoped I would not revert to bedwetting, but was not worried if I did.

Honestly I think Mom was right to use just-in-case diapers so that when we eventually did lose bladder control we were not embarrassed.

Thanks ever so much for taking the time to write such a lucid account of your experiences for us, Angela. Better late than never!! NP, always glad to hear from you and wish we could stay in touch a bit better as I'm feeling rather estranged from this community, sadly. As the fall progresses and my workload increases I will not be able to spend much time here in any regard, so it's just as well. Hugggs!

Did they threaten to use diapers as a form of punishment? My parents only did this for daytime wetting accidents. My dad was opposed to diaper use past the age of 7 or 8 because he believed it encouraged bedwetting. I often longed to wear a diaper at night though.

I don't think it was meant as punishment outright, just a solution to their frustration. I could be wrong though, there was a lot of physical and emotional abuse in my childhood.

I answered the age of five.  My original "potty-training" started when I learned how to walk at the age of 13 months.

My mom had bought me a "big boy potty" chair when I started to toddle.  She assumed that if a baby could walk all by himself, then he could use a potty and not his pants.  She was wrong.  At that age, 13 months, I pooped my pants (diapers or training pants, it didn't matter) over and over again.  So, my mom put me back in diapers and rubber pants (this was 1959) and kept me in diapers until I was two.

Then, when I was two, she tried to potty train me again, but again, I just pooped my training pants over and over again. (peed and pooped actually)  So now she was angry and disgusted so my mom put me back in diapers and rubber pants at the age of two and kept me in diapers until I was five years old.

Believe it or not, I have clear memories of my mom diapering me at that age.  I remember her powdering my bottom while holding diaper pins in her mouth and I remember when she took me to a daycare at the age of four and had to explain to the daycare lady that I was "still in diapers" and still pooping my pants.  I remember the daycare lady said that I had to go to the two year old room, because that's where the diapering took place and all the other four year olds were already potty trained.   Yes, I remember that, and so does my mom who talks about it often.  She tells everybody, "He was still in diapers until he was five."

I pooped my pants until I was about four but gave it up (reluctantly) when my parents promised to buy me a set of toy gears. Now they have no control over it and I'm back in diapers and pooping as I please.

I did not really go to kindergarten due to still being in diapers.  I did start, and wore trainers and plastic pants, but after two week mom took me out of school and put me back in diapers for another year.  I wore trainers and plastic pants from first thru third grade, and was wet almost every day.  I still bedwet and wore diapers to bed until I was almost in high school.
