Merry Christmas from The Cloth Diaper Whisperer

Read the full story here...

For Christmas Eve I thought it would be nice to have my 8 year old son write for the blog and to also let you know why Christmas Eve is extra special at our house :

"My name is Hanz and I am 8 years old and I was born February 25th, 2000. My Mom (Kelly Wels) works in the basement of our old house selling cloth diapers.

I help her fold and put together by brother Riley's diapers and wipes at our house.

My Mom started her job 8 years ago. I'm guessing she started her job because she loves babies. I have a sister Olivia, and a brother Riley."

My son Hanz is a great help to me. On Monday of this week I had to go into the shop for a bit and he helped me with lots of little things. What a special boy he his!

11 years ago I gave birth to my first child Olivia on Christmas Eve. What a wonderful Christmas gift she was. I had her at 2:32 pm. I didn't want to stay in the hospital for Christmas so I left with Olivia at 6:30pm!

This year Riley is having his first Christmas.
Today my family is coming over in the morning to celebrate Olivia's birthday. We are usually joined by my in-laws but my father in law was sick earlier this year and they were unable to make it this year.
In the afternoon, my very best friend Jenn of almost 30 years is coming over with her Mom and Grandpa. Grandpa is an avid musician and has his own band. We hope he brings his harmonica!
Christmas time is extra special for so many reasons.

Christmas Eve At Our House

Read the full story here...

PhotobucketWhile I read the very detailed product focus post about Linda and Happy Heiney’s here on Kelly’s blog, I never realized she was a local San Diego mom.

A couple weeks ago I received an email newsletter from Linda Byerline, creator of Happy Heiny’s, calling for newborns and toddlers to participate in a local diaper fashion show for 2 days of local news station interviews. It wasn’t a “paying” gig – but we would be allowed to keep the diapers our little one(s) would wear (and potentially be seen on television). For a cloth diapering mom – a free diaper or two is better than monetary compensation!

Needless to say I was thrilled to be accepted when I received Linda’s email response with the specifics for the event(s). I prepared everything the night before to ensure a seamless morning and even woke up extra early. However, as all mamas know, when you have to be somewhere at a very specific time, something always comes up to make you late. Although I planned to arrive at least 15 minutes early – thankfully, we were exactly on time!

I entered Linda’s local boutique, Baby Frenzy, and was amazed at the turnout! Babies of all shapes and sizes (and their happy mamas and a daddy too) were all gathered throughout the store. Linda was busy sizing babies and determining which diaper would fit best. My little guy, Ilyas, is only 2 months old and already 15+ pounds. We discussed putting him into a small Happy Heiny’s Pocket Diaper but settled on the Happy Heiny’s One Size Diaper in kelly green. My youngest daughter, Halimah, would also be modeling a Happy Heiny’s One Size Diaper in lavender.

WhenPhotobucket the news reporter and camera man finally arrived they were overwhelmed by the turnout. The reporter almost didn’t know where and how to begin because there wereso many of us. He met with Linda while we all prepared our little ones for the fashion show (the camera man shot footage of the process).

As I assembled the diapers, my first reaction was “WOW.” The fleece lining is lusciously soft. If I were a baby I would definitely want that against my bum! Stuffing the diaper was effortless. The velcro (aplix) tabs are also generously sized, very sturdy, yet incredibly easy to adjust to ensure the best possible fit and a speedy diaper change to boot! The Happy Heiny’s One Size Diaper truly is just that; it fit my 2 month old just as good as it fit my almost 3 year old.

Afterwards the reporter asked, “Who just swears by the one-size diapers?” Everyone raised their hands! From newborns to toddlers there were bums of all shapes and sizes sporting these awesome diapers in a large variety of colors and gorgeous prints.

We were also requested to participate in a live broadcast for an alternate news station the following morning. After I arrived a few minutes late, Linda was able to get me the diapers to put on my kids for the interview. This time they would be modeling the Happy Heiny’sPhotobucket One Size Diaper with SNAPS. Halimah in the cowhide print and Ilyas in a solid aqua. This was my first time using a diaper with snaps. Linda did an excellent job designingthe snaps version becauseI had no difficulties at all getting these on my kids. All in all – the snaps were just as easy and fit as good as the aplix version.

The producer asked that only the babies/kids be in the actual footage during the interview – so my daughter sat and held her brother on the blanket amidst the other little ones. Needless to say the anchorwoman conductinPhotobucketg the interview was very distracted by all the babies! However the message itself was loud and clear; today’s cloth diapers are NOT the cloth diapers of old – they are just as easy as disposables, better for the environment and gentler on your pocketbook!

I’m grateful for this wonderful opportunity to participate in promoting cloth diapers while also being able to try this product. Having now used and laundered them a couple times I can honestly say they’rereally great diapers!

A short description of PlanetWise products, when it was invented, and the types of materials it is made of:

After years of research we developed a truly great wet bag and diaper pail liner that will not leak or wick at the seams. What makes Planet Wise Products different? They are the first and only wet bag and diaper pail liner on the market that are not only sewn but also SEALED!!! PATENT PENDING!! You can put your wet wipes, super wet diapers, swimwear, or anything really wet in our products and they won't leak or wick. We offer many great prints and colors too!

Our technique of seam sealing was invented in 2007 and currently has a patent pending status.

We choose the very best materials to go into our products: high quality designer cotton fabric, PVC-free waterproof polyurethane (PUL), durable, lead-free, made in the USA zippers.

Why choose PlanetWise?

Not only is our product unique in that there is finally a truly waterproof wet bag and diaper pail liner available (go ahead and put water in it and squeeze - no leaks!) but in every step we have considered the environment and our impact. During development we carefully researched raw materials and chose as many USA-made materials as possible. While abiding by this high standard of quality, we also continually strive to keep the price affordable for all families. All products are manufactured in a locally women-owned facility; helping to support the local economy and reduce our environmental impact. All business decisions, either big or small, are evaluated with our planet’s health and social harmony in mind.

A brief intro about PlanetWise and about the inventor

Planet Wise Inc.™ is a privately owned family corporation; founded by Nicki Maynard and later joined by husband Jesse. As a husband and wife team, we are working together to ensure the highest quality products while following responsible environmental and social business practices. Nicki is a busy mother of two small children (soon to be three!) juggling family and work on a daily basis.
