Friday's Featured Fluff Addict is....Michelle!

Meet Michelle!  She's today's Featured Fluff Addict!

Tell us a little about yourself, where you are located, how many kids you have,little ones in cloth, etc Hi My name is Michelle. I am located in Northeast, GA. I am a stay at home mom and full time student. I have one son, Noah who is 17 months old today! He is our first cloth diaper baby and we started cloth diapering him when he was 7 months old.  (Michelle also sells Avon.  If you're interested you can visit her site here http://mferguson8294.avonrepresentative.com/)


What made you decide to give cloth diapers a try? I was always interested in cloth. My mom cloth diapered me and my sisters so I knew it was something I wanted to look into when I had one of my own. But when I did some research all I saw were the expensive $20 diapers and thought there's no way we can afford those! Well then one day a mom friend of mine and I were talking and she was telling me she used cloth and she got them from a local store. She told me they had a trial program where you paid $10 to try all different kinds of diapers for 3 weeks. I was so excited! So I talked to my husband and convinced him it would save us money and he let me try them! I fell in love right away!!

What were your friends and family's reaction when seeing the "new" cloth diapers and have they been supportive or skeptical of your choice to use cloth diapers? My husband was on board as long as it saved us money and he didn't have to change poopy diapers! (which he now does and even cleans them!) My parents thought it was cool, since they did it themselves when we were babies. My in laws seemed open minded about it and now they think its really awesome!

What was your very first cloth diaper? A Thirsties Fab Fitted with a Thirties cover! And then a Bumgenius 3.0.

What type of diapers does your stash primarily consist of; pockets, aio, onesize, prefolds, flats, hybrids, etc.? I have a lot of pockets, fuzzibunz to be exact. I love my fuzzibunz! The rest of my stash is some BumGenius All-in-Ones and a few Doodle Dypes AI2s. (cuz they are just so cute!)

What is your favorite Knickernappies product or which Knickernappies product are you dying to try and why? I have honestly never tried any Knickernappies products but I just recently found out about ya'll! I would love to try a one size diaper!

Do you have a favorite place to hang out and talk or learn about cloth ; a blog, message board, facebook page, etc.? There's the babycenter cloth diapering board that has TONS of awesome information and a lot of my friends use cloth so I talk to them about it and get advice and give it too!

What cloth diapering item, besides diapers, do you consider to be a must-have accessory? A wet bag and pail liner! When I first started I didn't have either and lets just say it was a stinky mess!

If you could share just one tip with someone who is just starting out with cloth or considering using cloth, what would be your best piece of advice to them? Try different kinds of diapers before you make a decision on what you want to use. Most likely you'll change your mind! And you will save money! It takes a little time but it will happen and it will be great!
