Another Nicki's blogger introduces herself!

Two years ago I never would have guessed I would be cloth diapering my children, let alone writing on a blog about it. When I first considered cloth, my oldest daughter was only a few months old. I remember hearing someone say they were having a second child and the cost associated with the baby would be very low since they would be reusing the diapers from their first child, I was intrigued. I started looking into cloth due to the cost savings but I soon decided that it was too difficult and looked very overwhelming. I kept it in the back of my mind but I was not ready to begin yet.

When my daughter, Gabby turned 15 months we had some exciting news, we were expecting another child! This seemed like the perfect time to start cloth since I knew I would want to try it with my second child I felt like it would be ideal to test drive it on my toddler. I went online and started researching what I wanted to buy. It all still seemed overwhelming for me so I decided to start off with a little of a few different kinds of diapers instead of buying a large lot of one kind of diaper. Boy was I glad I did that. I thought I would love fitteds but they ended up not working as well for my toddler but I was in love with pockets and prefolds. I never thought I would like a prefold, it seemed like the most complicated when it actuality it is not complicated at all. Even my reluctant husband, Mark has become a prefold pro. I started out my stash with BumGenius 3.0, Knickernappies, Prefolds and Thirsties covers. I was hooked the moment the diapers arrived! Since then my stash has grown and changed many times. I love trying new diapers and I find that different diapers work for different situations so it is nice to have some variety.

My oldest daughter Gabby is 2 years old now and I prefer mostly pockets and prefolds for her, my youngest daughter Gretchen is 5 months and I prefer fitteds for her. I have been married to my husband Mark for five years and I have a home childcare business.

I ventured into cloth diapering for the cost factor alone but after a year of cloth diapering I have taken on other areas of green living and feel like it has so many benefits besides the cost savings (which is HUGE!). I look forward to contributing to this blog and sharing my personal stories as well as some of the knowledge I have gained on my journey! Please send me feedback and comments as you see fit!
