This week's Featured Knickernappies Retailer is....SnuggleHugs located in Berea Ohio!

 It's Friday again!  Time to feature another fabulous Knickernappies retailer.  This week the spotlight is on Christine of SnuggleHugs!  Read our interview below and get to know the wahm behind SnuggleHugs a little better.

Tell us a little about yourself, your family, if you have little ones in cloth diapers, etc.-My name is Christine, and I am the lucky wife of David and mother to 6 of the most beautiful children around.  We have 4 girls ages 26, 10, 7 and 6 our boys are 18 and 9.  We live in Berea Ohio which is just west and south of Cleveland.  Our children have all outgrown diapers now unfortunately so we patiently await grandbabies to diaper and baby wear.   

Do you have a physical store or do you sell online only?   We do not have a B&M yet but are working towards that goal.  We do offer personal consultations for our local families for a nominal fee which is returned to them in the form of store credit.

How'd you get started cloth diapering and what made you decide to open your own business?   Our first introduction to today’s cloth diaper was a bit unorthodox although the method was effective. I introduced my girlfriend to baby wearing which she grew to love almost as much as I do. One afternoon she showed up at my house without calling with a HUGE bag of cloth diapers. She told me “I’m not leaving until you have tried every one of these diapers!” She had prefolds, covers, fitted diapers, pocket diapers and all-in-ones. She stayed for 6 hours letting my little one “test out” every one of the diapers she brought. Her tactic worked. I was sold. When my husband got home that night (yes she was still here) I said “Guess what we are going to start doing now Honey!?” Cloth diapers and baby wearing were my brand new passions. That afternoon was over 7 years ago and they both are still just as much a passion in my life.

What do you like best about being in the cloth diaper industry?  
The best part of the cloth diaper industry is the families I get to meet and help.  I have met some really great people both as customers or fellow retailers that I would never have had the chance to if I was not in this business.  I love getting to help new families make their first steps into a whole new world.

 What are your favorite Knickernappies products and why?  The side snapping feature of Knickernappies lends itself to reduced bulk around the middle making it easier to fit under clothes.  If you are using the sized pockets or the one size the side snapping feature is wonderful.  Personally we preferred the sized diapers.  Next I would have to say is the Super-Do insert although a bit on the think side compared to just a micro fiber insert it absorbs like no ones business perfect for nap and over nights or just heavy wetters.  We do wish that the Super-Do was available when our little ones were in cloth.
