When was the diaper invented and can you explain its evolution?

The best place on the Internet to get this information is my personal “History of the diaper” section.  You can get there by following this link: History of the Diaper  If you want to see a Time-Line of events for the disposable diaper industry, follow this link: Time-Line US  I have been asked a few times permission to use my text; please feel free to reproduce any text on my web Site, as long as you identify the source with a small reference or preferable a link to my Site.
