In 2005, I entered the world of cloth diapering. I’d love to say it was an easy transition but oh my goodness was I overwhelmed. I know for a fact that I would have not started cloth diapering at that time if it wasn’t for my wonderful friend Melisa. She literally took me by the hand and got me started.
My simple, small stash was all I needed to feel the pride of doing something good for the environment, my budget and my son’s health. But, after a while my son’s needs changed and the system I was using wasn’t cutting it.
I searched the internet for answers but was left more confused than I started. I didn’t give up though. I eventually found a system that would work (Happy Heinys) and from there my obsession knowledge grew.
By the time our 3rd child arrived I had actually figured out why in the world someone would use a fitted when you have to cover the darn thing. But wouldn’t you know the new baby would have sensitivities meaning I had to learn a whole new world of information.
In 2007, my husband had had enough. He forced me to put all this education to some good. Okay, not true but it was his encouragement (and idea) for me to save other moms the time and money I had spent digging for answers.
The first step was to write a book. It’s called Ultimate Guide to Cloth Diapers. After the months of writing was completed I realized I didn’t want to stop there. I wanted a way to constantly update moms on new products, helpful tips and introduce them to great WAHMs. That is where All About Cloth Diapers comes in.
I can tell you that the first thing I do with my morning computer time is check for emails and blog comments. I LOVE helping my thousands of readers. Of course 8 months ago I had no idea it would grow this large! I have definitely been blessed.
This enormous growth is what prompted the upgrade to All About Cloth Diapers. It is still a work in progress as I await the completion of my custom logo. I hope you enjoy the changes and the warm inviting feel. As always if you have any questions please leave me a comment and I will provide an answer promptly.
Thank you for this awesome opportunity to provide cloth diaper information to your families.
