This is interesting. I have often wondered how women from those early eras dealt with keeping babies and themselves clean without rubber pants to cover the diapers.
Our library has a free trade area where you leave magazines, books, etc. pertaining to crafts of all sorts. I found a vintage booklet of baby knitting patterns a few days ago, printed in the 30's and there is a pattern in it for the longies and soakers.
I have been reading the "Dakato Territory" series by L. Snelling, a christian fiction series from the mid 1880's.
