“You want ME to do it?”

Every once in a while my husband and I will want to go out for the night or our schedules conflict to where we need a babysitter.  Most of the time either my sister (who cloth diapers as well) or my Mom will watch our kids.  We don’t use disposables (other than the time I had to strip due to hard water mineral build up, but that’s another story), so they have to use cloth with our baby.  I remember the first time my mom watched the baby without me or my husband there, it was our wedding day and both of the grandmothers were there.  I thought, “Oh, they can handle it”.  They did great, but there are a few things that I think all cloth diaper Moms and Dads could do to make it a little bit easier on their sitters that we didn’t think of until after talking to them.

In this week’s #MyClothStory, we meet one of our fans Tina Schallhorn. The Cloth Diaper Whisperer: Tell us about your family Tina: We are a unique family here I would say.  Daddy is an all American barbecue lover soccer player and mommy is from Brazil.  We have a 14 month old little energetic boy named Landon, a 9 year old Schnauzer dog named The Dude, and we are expecting a new baby boy in the next 3 weeks or so!  We live in central Illinois, where the cloth diaper community is amazing! The Cloth Diaper Whisperer: How long have you been using cloth diapers? Tina: We are fairly new to CD.  We started when Landon was a year old (4 months ago).  He was the only grandchild in the family not be use cloth, but I was working full time and the daycare was not keen on it, so I was scared of taking the plunge – how silly of me! The Cloth Diaper Whisperer: Share one tip that you think all cloth diaper families could use. Tina: Keep. it. simple.  I think one of the reasons I was scared to use cloth was that I felt I would be overwhelmed with re-learning to do laundry, and with all the different options and logistics around cloth.  By deciding to start part time and slowly, I realized it is actually as complicated as one wants it …
