Q: How have cloth diapers changed your life?
Cloth diapers have changed my life by not making me feel guilty about diapering another baby. I have three kids under five and had been buying diapers for too long! When I found out I was pregnant with number 3 I vowed to never buy another pack of disposables. Aside from two small newborn packs of disposables that we received as a gift, we have only used cloth diapers on our daughter, who is now four months old. I think the diapers have paid for themselves already! We even went on a 1,800 mile road trip to see family and never once used disposables even on the road!
Q: This summer I am looking forward to….
CAMPING! With three little kids camping is always fun and adventures. We are hoping to go on a two week long camp trip this year and of course cloth diapering the whole time!
Q: The most unusual thing in my diaper bag or purse is…..
I am pretty crazy about keeping my diaper bag cleaned out and organized but I would say the most unusual thing would be coconut oil. I’m not sure if its unusual or not but I use it for EVERYTHING! I use it as moisturizer, diaper rash treatment and prevention, in my hair to make it shiny, as makeup remover – anything!
Q: If I could live in one outfit for the rest of my life, it would be….
A jersey knit maxi skirt and nursing tank top. This is pretty much my daily uniform – it’s so comfy and easy but at least it looks like I “tried” to get dressed.
Q: If you could offer one piece of advice to a new mom/dad, what would it be?
Enjoy your first baby and pregnancy. Having multiple children is wonderful but there is nothing like being able to devote all your attention to one chid. Once you have more, there will be no more afternoon naps with your new baby. Also, co-sleeping and breastfeeding have been a life saver. I have hardly had any sleep deprived days with this baby and I really think it has a lot to do with the fact that I am not getting up to make bottles all night.
