January's Spotlight Mom

Name: Shannon
Hometown: Richmond, VA
Children: Jess (8), Emmy (2), Bri (10 weeks – pictured)
Occupation: HR Specialist

Why do you use cloth? I had never cloth diapered before and I really didn’t think we would have… until circumstances changed. I looked into it many times but never did anything to make the move until we had our third daughter, Bri, who had diaper rash and was allergic to the disposables. So we tried cloth diapers and within 24 hours her bum looked so much better. We have been using them ever since!

What is the one thing you could watch your baby do forever? Sleep! I have so many pictures of my kids sleeping.

What is the best parenting advice you ever received?Just be the best mom you can be!

What is your absolute favorite cloth diaper brand and why?We really don’t have a favorite brand yet because we are still searching for that perfect one (Ed. note: Shannon has been using cloth diapers for just three weeks – way to go mama!). It may take us a little while to find that right diaper.

What is the strangest comment you’ve received from someone who found out you cloth diapered your baby? I haven’t received any yet because we just started. However my husband is on board and that is all that matters.

What is your favorite guilty pleasure? Playing on the computer and working on my blog.

just 3 weeks?? Rock on, Mama! So glad it solved the rash issues and that DH is on board! So much easier that way! Keep up the good work!

i think Rumparooz is a great cloth diaper product.

Only 3 weeks? Way to go! My advice is to try several different styles of diapers before settling on "the one." This is what I did, and actually some of the first I tried turned out to be one of my favorites as well as one of the last options we tried. And all the dipes you buy in the meantime won't go to waste! I think it's fun to have a diverse collection.

I love watching my baby sleep too! There's just something so sweet about their little peaceful faces.

Thank you everyone for your well wishes. It has now been about 12 weeks now and we are still loving it. Still haven't found the PERFECT ONE yet, but I am starting to think that we just like many different ones.
