What is one cloth diapering tip you wish you had gotten at the very start?
To base your child’s diaper size on more than just weight. If I had paid more attention to the rise, waist and thigh measurements of the diapers I am sure I would have gotten a stash that fit my son much better!
What is the one cloth diapering tip you would tell a new mom?
My advice is, like with anything, there is a learning curve (especially with prefolds), and you have to find the styles and brands that work best for your baby and family. Give it time and don’t give up!
What do you do to relax?
Blogging is one of my favorite activities, whether I do it for relaxing, regaining my identity or giving myself a little self-therapy! I also LOVE to knit and read (I review books for several publishing companies on my blog too!).
Describe your baby's last meltdown?
Well, we have VERY fussy babies so you could pretty much pick any random moment of the day and either my baby or my three-year-old (or the combination) is probably melting down over something (or nothing)!
Describe your last meltdown?
Well, considering that we are still in that first six-month stage with our youngest, it spells fussiness for everyone in our family and meltdowns for any and all of us are rather frequent! So frequent that I can’t pin down an actual reason or cause for my last meltdown, but I assure you it was something trivial!
What is one thing you wish you could do more of?
I wish I could hang out with my mom more! She is my best friend and always such a help to me without adding extra stress- priceless!
Last movie you saw in the theatre?
Gran Torino- I usually only recommend movies if I am familiar with the crowd, so I am not going to tell anyone to run out and rent it. However, I will say that Clint Eastwood does a fantastic job!
One thing you can't leave home without?
My iPhone! I’ve had it for two years and don’t know what I would do without it! It is my life-line to the rest of society!
