A Cloth Diaper Story: Sarah M.


SARAH M.

Children
I only have one child, Charis, who just turned two August 18.

About Sarah
I am a RN and am currently taking a class to complete my BSN.  I have worked in telemetry and ICU/CCU, but currently I stay at home with my daughter.

I enjoy blogging and am a co-host for the weekly Breastfeeding Blog Hop.  I love knitting and sewing.  I'd love to open an Etsy store, but will most likely wait until I complete my BSN.



How long have you been cloth diapering?
Over 18 months.  I planned to cloth diaper when our daughter came home from the hospital, but had no idea what to expect, plus with all the disposables friends gave us, I felt like we needed to use them.

Why did you choose to cloth diaper?
I choose to cloth diaper to save money, especially since we only have one child now and hope to have more down the road.  Now, I love the cuteness factor.

What diapers are in your stash?
A little bit of everything, but I lean towards bumGenius pockets and Freetimes, Thirsties wraps, and Fuzzibunz perfect size.

Here's a peek at Sarah's stash!

Favorite diaper in your stash?
Fuzzibunz Medium Perfect Size {in a daisy print}

Biggest cloth diapering challenge?
My biggest challenge was choosing/finding a diaper that would be cheap, but hold up, because we have to pay for washing our clothes.  It's $1/load.  I ended up choosing prefolds because flats scared me when I was pregnant.

Favorite thing about cloth diapering?
1. Saving money.
2. Using diapers to coordinate with what my daughter's wearing.

Least favorite thing about cloth diapering?
The poop, especially once my daughter started eating solid foods.

Favorite piece of parenting or cloth diaper advice?
When looking for cloth diapers, try a few out before making a final decision.  What works for one baby, may not work well for your baby.

Anything extra you'd like to share?
If you have a friend who is expecting, ask if they plan to cloth diaper and if so, give a cloth diaper as a gift.
