About Ashley
I am a Stay at home Mommy and a full time student! I am majoring in Human Services, and I hope to be a therapist one day. I love staying home and taking care of my little ones! It is the most rewarding job that any parent will ever have!

How long have you been cloth diapering?
I started cloth diapering when Abel was about 1 month old. Abel is cloth diapered 100% of the time. I also cloth diaper my 2 1/2 year old and my 2 1/2 year old step-daughter part time. 

Why did you choose to cloth diaper?
When I was pregnant with Abel I did tons of research about cloth diapering. I was so overwhelmed with the countless options I was faced with! I chose cloth diapering because I wanted to do what I though was best for my baby. Abel's skin is very sensitive and after trying countless disposable brands and diaper rash creams, I knew what I had to do.  So I immediately took all the knowledge I had from researching cloth diapering when I was pregnant and began ordering fluff!

What diapers are in your stash?
The first major thing I have in my stash are prefolds and covers. I have Bummis (all pre-loved), Thirsties and a couple other brands. I also have pocket diapers that I like to use when my prefolds and covers run out!

Favorite diaper in your stash?
Fuzzibunz x-small Orange

Biggest cloth diapering challenge?
I would have to say that the biggest challenge I have faced in cloth diapering is trying to get on a good routine that works for me and my husband. Also, getting my husband to realize how great cloth diapering is and getting him to actually change the baby since he has been in cloth has been a challenge! I hope that that changes soon!

Favorite thing about cloth diapering?
My number 1 favorite thing about cloth diapering is the peace of mind in knowing that I am doing something great for my baby, doing something great for the Earth, and saving a lot of money!

I will also admit that I love picking out the cute little prints and putting them on my little man. Cloth diapers are so darn cute and they are even cuter on my sweet baby!

Least favorite thing about cloth diapering?
If cloth diapers didn't need to be washed, I would have nothing to complain about!

Favorite piece of parenting or cloth diaper advice?
Do what you feel is best for your little one! Don't do something different just because someone else says to. There will be people that will try to get you to not cloth diaper. Don't listen to them!
