Cara Ramirez loves cloth diapers because they saved her daughter’s bum from horrible diaper rash. Let’s get to know this cloth diapering mom a bit more:
Q. How have cloth diapers changed your life?
A. My daughter was allergic to the chemicals in the disposables diapers and she had a diaper rash so bad her doctor prescribed burn cream that they usually only give to burn patients! When she was three months old my husband finally got a great job out of college and we had the money to buy her FuzziBunz. We bought all One Size so we could get the most use out of them (and because she has very chunky legs). Within a week of using our new diapers her rash was GONE! We LOVE these diapers and will never go back. They are super easy to use and clean and we have never had a problem with odor or stains. I never thought diapers would be so fun! I am not afraid to show people my diapers and how they work when changing her in public.
Q. What is your funniest diapering changing, poop or pee story?
A. When we were about to give our little one a bath, my husband picked up the naked baby and patted her butt and she pooped all over him, the changer, her crib and the floor. He has never patted her butt while she was naked again.
Q. What do you find most rewarding about motherhood?
A. Watching my daughter grow up and learn new things is so rewarding to me. The sleepless nights and rough days don’t matter when you see that little smile and her new abilities each day. In the next year we are hoping to have another baby and watching them grow up together will be amazing. I am an only child and want a big family (but not too big).
Q. What was the last movie you watched / or last book you read? Tell us about it.
A. The last movie we watched was “The Lion King.” We got to watch it with our seven month old and she loved the colors and the music. She is in that stage where she will start moving to music and she tried “dancing” to it while on our laps.
Q. If you had 24 hours of freedom to do anything you wanted (and money wasn’t an object), what would you do?
A. I would pay off our school loans. I try and be practical with everything I do. I know not interesting to most, but very important to me, and then we can talk about something super fun to do.
