What was the longest stretch of buying/using diapers you had? (either cloth or disposables)

For example, my mom had 5 kids in 8 years...my littlest brother didn't toilet train till he was just over 3...so she bought diapers for 11 years straight

My oldest is almost 4. He's been potty trained since 16 months. We recently became overnight trained. Sooooo it was 16 months of diapers and then 16 months - a few weeks ago of overnight only.

Hmmm... DD was PT at 3, and DS was here by then, so, yep, 5.5 years so far between all 3 kids. Looks like it's going to be like 8-9 years or so!

My two older kids are 17 months apart so I was on diaper duty for about 4 yrs or close to it. My oldest was a tough sell on potty training so he was almost 4 before he was fully potty trained. My youngest was fully potty trained about a week after my oldest. He wanted to be just like his big brother. That was lucky for me. I suspect I'll be on diaper duty for about 4 years this time around, too. My daughter will be about 26.5 months old when this LO is born.

My oldest is 13 years, so we've been buying diapers or pull-ups continuously since then & most of the time it was for at least 2 (or more) children.

My oldest is almost 6 and we had our 2nd before she was trained, then we had our 3rd before he was trained, and that one probably won't be trained til after this one is born. Then figuring the average 2.5 years for this one will put us at 9 straight years of diapers.
