The Diva WHAT???
I first read about the Diva Cup on a mommy blog. The Diva what???? I didn’t know exactly what it was, but it sounded. ..um… weird. But then as I was browsing Kelly’s Closet I saw that they had them for sale. That was over a year ago. I was pregnant and looking for newborn diapers, not menstrual care. I was a little intrigued and read the description to my husband. Like most men his reaction was “I do NOT want to know”. But I did and it didn’t seem as “weird”.
Fast forward to a couple of months ago. Despite nursing exclusively I, once again, got my monthly fun visit back. I was totally not prepared. Emergency trip to the store. And then on the way home, the Diva Cup entered my mind. I began wondering if it really worked. Does it hurt? Is it gross?
I’m here to tell you that it is worth it! The instructions are very clear and with a couple of times I had the hang of using it. Not only will it pay for itself within about 3 months, it is comfortable, hygienic (I also use the Diva Wash), and I don’t have to make any emergency trips to the store! Cloth diapering has opened up a whole new world to me.
