July Spotlight Mom
Hometown: Lewiston, Maine
Mom to: Grace (2 years old)
Occupation: Stay at home mom
Loves: Impromptu beach visits; weekend hiking trips
Favourite Cloth Diaper: Blueberry
What is one cloth diapering tip you wish you had gotten at the very start?
Your stash and diapering/washing system doesn't have to be perfect at first. It will take a little while to figure out what you like/don't like and how you do things.
What is the one cloth diapering tip you would tell a new mom?
Don't assume you will or won't like a certain type of diaper without trying it. I was sure I'd hate fitteds and prefolds with covers, but they are my favorites.
What is one thing you wish you could do more of?
Cook without interruption or “help” from a two-year old.
I would be in big trouble if I lost my baby's...
Bottle. It's the only “thing” she's attached to.
One thing you can't leave home without?
My GPS – I'm hopeless with directions. If Grace falls asleep while we're out, I usually drive around until she's sound asleep. I'd never find my way back without it.
What's something unique about you?
I love making food from scratch – it has become an obsession. A few years ago my husband asked me jokingly if I could make mayonnaise. Three trips to the store and a huge mess later, we had a jar of homemade mayonnaise. I was determined to prove I could do it. I love the challenge of figuring out how to make something I've never made before. My current favorite homemade item is yogurt. I want to try to make cheese next.
