Today I am excited to introduce you all to a new Knickernappies Retailer...Megan of Dexter's Diapers!
A little about yourself and your family, if you have little ones in cloth diapers or have used cloth diapers, your location, etc.- My name is Megan Nichols I am the mother of an amazing little boy who is now 8 months old! I am the wife to a great husband, I won’t say his age! Family is the most important thing in the world to me and they come before anything else that is why I decided to open Dexter’s Diapers. I have always used cloth on my little man and I hope to influence more moms to start using cloth diapers as well. We live in a small navy town in South Georgia, I love it here!
How'd you get started and what made you decide to open your own business? I realized I was missing to much time with my son working and I knew I needed to stay home. I decided to go into the cloth diaper business when I found myself talking to many local mothers and on chat boards about the diapers and how much they have changed over the past ten years, how great they are for baby, and how great they are for the environment! I decided I needed to open a cloth diaper store so that more moms would be able to find cloth and have their questions answered about the diapers!
When and/or how did you find out about cloth diapers and what made you decide to start selling them? I found out about cloth diapers many years ago baby sitting but I had brushed it off then when I found out I was pregnant my boss at the time, a chiropractor, gave me a magazine all about natural parenting. When I saw cloth diapers in there and read an article I immediately knew that I must use cloth diapers! I haven’t looked back since! I decided to start selling them when I left my job because I wanted more moms to know about cloth and make a difference in the community.
What do you like best about being a part of the cloth diaper industry? I like knowing that I am helping mother make a more natural decision for their babies that will help them save money and save our planet.
What are your favorite Knickernappies products and why? I love love love the Amber beads! I love them because when my son started teething he was having such a difficult time and would pull on his ears constantly! Bite his tongue and chew on anything he could get his hands on. He was always fussy and nothing I did was making him happy. I had tried the baby teething gel in my own mouth and hated it! My mantra is don’t do anything to your children you wouldn’t do to yourself! I would not want that gel in my mouth so how could I put it in his? I knew I needed something else. When I signed up to be a retailer for Knicernappies I saw they had Amber beads and immediately ordered them. Talk about excitement when I got my order in! As soon as I saw the package on my doorstep I opened it and put the beads on him! They have made such a difference! He is so calm and happy now even though he is cutting more teeth.
What's your one must-have cloth diapering accessory?
A diaper sprayer and a wet bag!
What makes your business unique and what might some of your goals be for the future? I have a very personal touch with my business and I answer all of my customer’s questions myself. I always have time for anything and when ever any one asks me a question I always give the most thorough answer I can. I love what I do and I think it truly shows in the way I treat my customers and the products I sell. I only sell products that I would personally use. My goals for the future are to one day have a brick and mortar store and start a program for the battered women’s shelter to be able to donate diapers to the soon to be mothers or mothers with little ones there!
