But, if it had been a cloth nappy

... he'd never have hit the ground at all!

(I just had to post this as a poke at folks who get all rabid over the cloth -vs- sposies thing.)

SAO PAULO, Brazil – A disposable diaper has saved the life of an 18-month-old boy, breaking his fall from a third-floor apartment window, officials said Thursday.

Caua Felipe Massaneiro survived a 30-foot (10-meter) fall because his diaper snagged on a security spike embedded in the concrete wall around his apartment building in the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife.

The boy dangled from the spike for a moment, then "the diaper opened and the baby fell to the ground, but at a much slower speed," a police officer said. "The diaper obviously lessened the impact of the fall and saved the baby's life."

"It was a miracle," said the officer who declined to be identified because she was not authorized to speak to the press.

I'm really glad the baby is alright!  And while I'm commenting, I hope they crack that dad upside the head with a board.  What idiot leaves an 18 month old in a room with a sofa up against a window?!

He'd "never done that before"?

My 17 month old can climb on top of his sisters's bunk bed and it has no ladder!
