It’s funny how the ordinary and sometimes icky task of changing diapers is something us mothers moan and groan about. Let’s face it, it’s not the most exciting thing we do and no one likes to do things when poop and pee are involved.
But as a mom with diaper-less children (my youngest is now 9), I honesty can admit that I miss diaper changing duty. Here’s why:
Diaper changing time used to be so exciting for me. I used to use my children’s bottoms as experimental havens for trialing new cloth diapering products. Now I depend on my network of moms to help trial the new products; however, nothing can replace the day-to-day personal experiences I used to have. I miss that.
Further, I really miss diaper changing time. While the poop and pee left much to be desired (stinky!), I miss those intimate moments with my kids where I cleaned them up, nuzzled with them and soaked in all the smiles they had to offer. Diaper changing duty was fun indeed!
Kids grow up fast and what seems like mundane, day-to-day chores soon become the pinnacle of your fond memories. Enjoy diaper changes and everything it has to offer – it goes by fast!
Known as the “Mother of the Modern Cloth Diaper,” Tereson Dupuy invented the cloth diaper that started the entire modern cloth diapering movement more than a decade ago. She later turned her invention into what is known today as FuzziBunz cloth diapers, a popular brand of cloth diapers since 2000. As an inventor, business owner and mom to three, Tereson has many years of personal and professional experience in the cloth diaper industry, and she’s excited to work with The Cloth Diaper Whisperer to offer her perspective on cloth diapering trends and insights.
