didn't there used to be different diapers for boys and girls?

i was just curious, because i remember when my brother was a baby (he's 8 now), there were diapers for girls and diapers for boys. lol. were the different at all? like diff areas of absorption? i think it's so funny that they used to be separate...? i'm guessing it was just something that lasted a few years. anyone know?

  • yes. I babysit a little girl and she wears the same size diapers as my son, they go in the same diapers. My mom tried telling me I had to buy special girl diapers.. I told her no their all the same now.
