Name: Sue R.
Hometown: Wake Forest, North Carolina
Mom to: Brayden (2 yrs), Barrett (7 mos)
Occupation: Full time mama
Learned about CD: On Twitter!

Favorite brand: FuzziBunz What is one cloth diapering tip you wish you had gotten at the very start?
That you need to forget what cloth diapering in the past was like and embrace what time and technology has produced. I would have never even thought about doing this if I didn’t push all of my preconceived notions of what cloth diapering was like out of my head.

What is the one cloth diapering tip you would tell a new mom?
Educate yourself about all the different types [of cloth diapers] and how it would fit into your lifestyle. There is so much information out there that made me confused and overwhelmed. Ask for help and find support. It is sometimes hard for me because I am the only mom I know that uses cloth diapers.

Last movie you saw in the theatre (if any)?
I saw Inglorious Bastards while visiting family in California. It was a nice date night with my husband. I love Tarantino flicks!

What is one thing you wish you could do more of?
Work out and have time for myself. I RARELY get any time for myself and when I do, it is usually spent doing chores or household things. I also wish I had more time alone with my husband. We never have anytime for each other. When we do, it is so late that we just crash into bed and fall asleep.

What is the one thing you can’t leave home without?
My iPhone or my diaper bag. My diaper bag is one of those double Skip Hop bags that is bigger than any other bag you’ve ever seen. I am so lost without it because I don’t carry a purse.

Something fun that you want our readers to know about you?
Four things, actually: 1) I was a starving pastry chef once-upon-a-time, 2) I moved cross country while eight months pregnant to a place I had never even visited and lived to tell about it, 3) I have five really lame tattoos that I got when I was a teenager, and 4) I have a dream to see the Taj Ma Hal before I die.

October Spotlight Mom

I have three beautiful, wonderful children. An almost five year old son, a one year old daughter and a five month old daughter. I love them more than words can say. As I write this my one year old daughter is asleep on my bed next to me, my five year old son is attending his second day of kindergarten and my five month old daughter is being held and fed by someone I have never met. What?!?! How can that be?

My five-month old daughter is being cared for by someone else - someone I do not know - because she is waiting for us to come get her in Ethiopia. We are currently in the process of adopting her.

This process has been long and we’ve experienced many unexpected delays. Several twists and turns have left us unsure of what will happen at any moment. We cannot be certain when exactly our youngest daughter will ready to come home, to us. This leaves us in a difficult position when determining what size she’ll be when she finally arrives!

I suppose we could wait until we have travel dates to get any clothes or diapers for her - but the truth is having things for her helps. Since we do have a daughter who is not that much older than our youngest we have been able to fill her closet and drawers with clothes her sister has outgrown. I’m hopeful the general size difference between them will allow the seasons to work out well.

What about the diapers? Obviously I cannot buy smalls as she has already likely outgrown size small. However, what if the medium size is just too big, or even too small? What to do?

I’ve opted to go ahead and start building a nice stash of one size diapers for her. So far, her stash consists of 15 bumGenius One Size 3.0 Pocket diapers, 3 bumGenius Organic All-in-One One Size diapers and 3 Smartipants diapers. This way I have diapers I can use when she arrives, regardless of her size!

Her stash is not yet complete... I’d like to add 2 Gro Baby shells and 6 soakers (since I have time I am waiting for the new patterns to come out). Additionally, for overnight use I plan to add 4 Kiwi Pie fitted diapers to the mix too.

By opting for one size diapers and getting a little of everything I prefer - I will have a decent stash ready and waiting just for her. We can’t wait to go to Ethiopia and pick her up - and YES, we plan to use cloth diapers while we are there!

Expecting the Unexpected!

Like everything else in life, you have to start somewhere with cloth diapering and for most people that begins with as minimal an investment as possible. For me, personally, I was torn between wanting to give it a fair trial without spending a ton of money, just in case I didn’t like it. I started as simply as possible with a couple of different brands and styles of cloth diapers and little else. I definitely got enough of a feel for the diapers to know that it was something I could really get on board with, but it certainly wasn’t as convenient and easy of a process as it is now. Other than not having enough diapers and washing every night the hardest part was not having what I now call my “unnecessary necessities.” These are my luxuries, my add-ons, the things that a true minimalist cloth diaperer would say are completely superfluous, but they make my day-to-day diapering much easier and smoother.

My Top 5 “Unnecessary Necessities” for Happy Cloth Diapering:

  1. Diaper sprayer- In my first post on The Cloth Diaper Whisperer I promised some embarrassing stories once we got to know each other. So here is my first…I sprayed myself IN THE FACE with the sprayer, not once, not twice, but at least three times! I’m talking full-on-square-in-the-face doused myself and the mirror, walls, ceiling (yes, I said ceiling)! I promise you it was total user error, no fault, whatsoever, on behalf of the sprayer. Despite these early snafus I looooooove my sprayer. It worked beautifully on EBF diapers and now that she’s eating solids it’s even better. Not one of my diapers has ever stained because of this little magic wand.
  2. Wet bags- I loathe plastic bags.. If I get stuck with one in my house I prefer to recycle it rather than reuse it and have it end up in a landfill in the end anyway. So I carry the Planet Wise small size wet bags in my diaper bag and car for storing dirty/wet diapers on the go. These things contain the smell and moisture and they are just so pretty! I also have a large wet bag I take on vacation with me. I fill it with all of my cloth diapering supplies on the way out, use it as my hamper throughout the trip and pack it as my dirty diaper laundry bag coming home. Couldn’t live without them.
  3. bumGenius Odor Remover- I’m pretty diligent about rinsing my inserts after each diaper change, but I don’t rinse the actual pockets themselves. I do, however, give them a little spray with the bumGenius Odor Remover. I truly believe this has helped cut down the smell in my dirty diaper basket. I have been known, on occasion, to stick my nose right in the basket to check the smell (I think that qualifies as embarrassing incident sharing #2) and this spray really seems to keep the smell at bay even after 2 days.
  4. BabyLegs- If I can, I will always avoid putting pants on my little girl for 2 reasons: first, since her bum is a bit bulkier with her cloth diapers certain pants can look quite silly on her and second, I despise covering up her cute little cloth diapers! BabyLegs keep her legs warm, give her cloth diapers their proper exposure and they are adorable in and of themselves. Remember, I said unnecessary necessities!
  5. Clothesline- I love my clothesline for so many reasons. It helps me take advantage of the awesome power of the sun to “bleach” my diapers, it exposes them to the breezes that keep them smelling beautiful and is another step towards an environmentally friendlier home. I think we can all agree that there is just something about doing diaper laundry and the clothesline takes that a step further. It reminds me of a simpler time. When I bring my basket out and hang those beautiful cloth diapers on the line it allows me to slow down and just enjoy the simple task at hand…if only for a moment.
While the beauty of cloth diapering is its simplicity, the routine can be tweaked and enhanced a bit to make it your own. When you want to enjoy the experience rather than just get through it, your unnecessary necessities can make a world of difference. Whether they’re fun, helpful or just plain obvious I’d love to know what unnecessary necessities my fellow cloth diapering moms out there use.
