Knickernappies Retailer of the Week! Loads of Joy Boutique & Diaper Service!

The week's Featured Retailer is not only a Knickernappies Retailer but also a Diaper Service! It's Loads of Joy in Newnan, Georgia!

Tell us a little about yourself, your family, if you have little ones in cloth diapers, etc.-I am a WAHM that started my own diaper service/online shop in April of 2009. I started this service because I lost my job. My daughter, Katrina, was in cloth because she was allergic to disposables and when I started the cloth adventure I searched for a diaper service in my area and couldn't find one. So I thought if I was washing diapers for my daughter, I could wash diapers for others. :)

I am married to my husband, Jonathan, for the last 5 1/2 years. I have a 12 year old son, Chad, from a previous marriage, and a 12 year old stepdaughter, Megan, that is from my husband's previous marriage (this is #2 marriage for both of us). We built a home together in Newnan, GA next to my grandfather and I help take care of him because he will be 90 in August. :)

Do you have a Brick & Mortar retail business or is it online only? I do rent space from a local knitting shop, Two Sisters Knitting Nook, with store space and have Knickernappies available for sale!

How'd you get started cloth diapering and what made you decide to open your own business? As I mentioned before, I started cloth diapering because Katrina developed a chemical burn type rash in disposables and so I tried the chlorine free disposables, but they were rough and expensive so I searched for cloth diapers. I found a lady who sold me some Knickernappies and I fell in love. I cloth diapered my daughter starting at about 4 months of age and if I had known how easy it was I would have done it from birth. I decided to open my diaper service after I lost my job and thought selling cloth diapers would be a natural extension of the service.

What do you like best about being involved in the Cloth Diaper Industry? That I am helping babies live in cotton underwear just like their mommies and daddies wear - I usually ask people if they would like to wear paper underwear!

What are your favorite Knickernappies products and why? My favorite KN products are the SuperDo's because they are a no fail system for overnight - if you have an extra heavy wetter, just add a layer of just hemp (2nd favorite) and I have never had a leak!
