Time to meet a new Featured Fluff Addict! This week it's Stephanie, the mama behind HouseWifeMama!
Tell us a little about yourself, where you are located, how many kids you have,little ones in cloth, etc.-
www.HousewifeMama.com, where I host weekly reviews and giveaways. I live in North Carolina with my Husband Michael and daughters Adah (2.5) and Abigail (8 months). They are both currently in cloth but Adah is potty learning.
What made you decide to give cloth diapers a try?
Knowing I was about to have 2 in diapers and the costs that comes along with that was a big factor. Plus, I've always been curious about cloth so I decided to take the plunge.
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?
I have gotten mixed reviews but no one is blatantly against it. I think most just think, "thats cool, but its not for me."
What was your very first cloth diaper? I'm embarrassed to say that I first bought some chinese made diapers on ebay because they were so cheap. I just wanted to test the waters without spending much. Needless to say, those are all long gone now.
What type of diapers does your stash primarily consist of; pockets, aio, onesize, prefolds, flats, hybrids, etc.? I have a little bit of everything but mostly use pockets and prefold/covers.
What is your favorite Knickernappies product or which Knickernappies product are you dying to try and why? I would love to try a side snapping one size diaper. I dont have any that snap on the side.
Do you have a favorite place to hang out and talk or learn about cloth ; a blog, message board, facebook page, etc.? I love diaperswappers.com and belong to a couple of facebook groups for diaper bloggers.
What cloth diapering item, besides diapers, do you consider to be a must-have accessory? I love having a snappi for my fitteds that need a closure device and I really love CJ's BUTTer.
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 out many different styles and brands before you commit to buying in bulk.
BIG thanks to Stephanie for sharing her story and advice! Remember to follow Stephanie's blog at HouseWifeMama!
