Kyle Bevan is a mean, green, cloth diapering daddy. Let’s get to know this cloth diapering dude a bit more:
Q. Why did you decide to use cloth diapers. Did you need much convincing?
A. I had heard from many sources that cloth diapers were a greener and more cost-effective alternative to disposable diapers. It didn’t take much for me to agree, the information presented was more than enough to give it a shot.
Q. What reason is most important to you for using cloth diapers?
A. One of the most important reasons is to not expose my daughter to harmful
chemicals that may be present in disposables. A cloth diaper puts you in control of what is in contact with your child’s skin. Using a cloth diaper helps you learn about the right kind of detergents to use when cleaning them so that you can prevent things like rashes from developing.
Q. What is your funniest diapering changing, poop or pee story?
A. Well around the time I was first learning to use the diapers, I had put the buttons on the wrong setting for her size. We put her in her jolly jumper to play when she started to get a little agitated. I went to pick her up and noticed there was poop all up her back and around her jumper seat. Needless to say it was a horrific sight to see… and clean up.
Q. What do you find most rewarding about fatherhood?
A. There is nothing in this world that can compare to having and caring for a child. It is a unique experience to have. I find it most rewarding to know that there is a little person who depends on me to be there for her for anything she needs.
Q. What TV Dad do you most identify with?
A. Well, after much debate with my family, the best TV Dad I could probably relate to is Jim Belushi as James “Jim” Orenthal on “According to Jim”. His character and I share a lot of the same personality traits. He’s funny (at least tries to be), kind of a grump, and cares for his family very much.
Q. What’s your favorite cloth diapering accessory?
A. I’d have to say the diaper liners are one of my favorites. They make it incredibly easy to clean the exceptionally messy diapers.
Q. What advice would you give to a new dad skeptical about cloth diapering?
A. The only way to know for sure is to give it a try. Washing cloth diapers is very easy and more convenient than one might think. I honestly will never even think to try disposables after hearing many horrible stories and facts about them. If you are uncertain, I guarantee that if you were to go out and buy one or two, you will never go back to disposables.
