Red diaper baby describes a child of parents who were members of the United States Communist Party (CPUSA) or were close to the party or sympathetic to its aims.
蘇絲．羅托洛（Suze Rotolo）在20008年出版的回憶錄《隨心所欲的時代：六○年代格林威治村回想集》中，自承是個典型麥卡錫時代的「紅色尿布嬰兒」（red diaper baby），意指在共產黨家庭長大的小孩。七○年代初挖掘水門案與尼克森關係而享大名的〈華盛頓郵報〉記者卡爾.伯恩斯坦（Carl Bernstein）也是一個「紅色尿布嬰兒」。
HistoryIn their book Red Diapers: Growing Up in the Communist Left, Judy Kaplan and Linn Shapiro define red diaper babies as "children of CPUSA members, children of former CPUSA members, and children whose parents never became members of the CPUSA but were involved in political, cultural, or educational activities led or supported by the Party".
More generally, the phrase is sometimes used to refer to a child of any radical parent, regardless of that parent's past partisan affiliation (or the affiliation of the child). Red Diaper Baby is also the title of an autobiographical one man show and book by monologist Josh Kornbluth, and a 2004 documentary film by Doug Pray.
