    To VKimo: I realise that adults sometimes wear diapers too, but it is far more common for infants to wear diapers, so I think my point still stands.
    An infant/toddler in diapers now would be born no later than this year (2012), so they would be 2010s kids. Yes they would also be early 2010s babies/toddlers, but mainly 2010s kids. You can't really call someone born in 2008-2012 a 2020s kid, thats ridiculous.

            Again, I feel obligated to correct your misrepresentations. After WW2 there was a huge population increase. (Often referred to as Baby Boomers) This surge in population growth was the greatest increase in US History (According to the 2012 US Census Data) If you do the math, you'll notice that 74.3% of Baby Boomers are over 65. This means the use of diapers used by elderly are far more numerous than you think.

              And further more,

              A child born between 2008-12 would in fact be a 2020's kid. As they would have grown up during those years. Classifying them as such before those years have happened is besides the point. I was born in 1986, if a certified nostalgia expert predicted I would be a 90s kid, he would have been perfectly correct in doing so.

                By your logic, someone born in 1988 would be a 00s kid.

                The interesting thing is that according to your definition, an 88er would have been 21 by the end of their childhood decade(an adult) whereas you were only 13 (barely a teenager) by the end of your childhood decade!! Makes no sense!!
                I don't see how 2 years makes such a massive difference that you ended up growing up in completely different decades!!

                  Au contraire, mon frère!

                  To really delve into the true source of this debate, we must take a loot at the etymology. We're defining a decades...kid. Not adult, not baby, etc. A kid (According to the Ageus Institute) age span is from 5 to 11. Once puberty hits, you become an adolescent. Therefor, I am still correct.

                    But someone born in 88 was 5-11 in the 90s so they are 90s kids not 00s kids. An 89er spent the vast majority of the ages 5-11 in the 90s too. Here's some etymology for you. Try teenager. 88 and 89 are 00s teenagers not 00s kids.

                      Kind sir,

                      Please enlighten me as to when and where I made the statement that human beings born in the 80s were 00 kids.

                              When you said that 2008-2012 are 2020s kids.
                              That would mean 88 and 89 are 00s kids, since they were born at the same point in the decade as someone born in 08 and/or 09 i.e the last 2 years. You may not have said them exact words, but obviously if 2008 and 2009 are 20s kids then 88 and 89 would have to be 00s kids, since they were exactly the same ages when both decades respectively happened.

                                I was born in 90 I consider myself both a 90s and 00's child where I have lots of memories from both.

                                  I uhhh, meant the teen-numbered years before 2020 (2013-2019) All this darn fangled millennial jargon makes it hard to classify time segments. My apologies.

                                  00s years are from 2000-2010. What do you call 2011-2020 kids...0teens?
