One of the unexpected bonuses of my so-far five month journey of public blogging has been the other bloggers I've "met" online. Everyone has been so nice and helpful, be it with blogging advice, praise--you name it.
Still--despite the fact that all my interactions with other bloggers have been positive, I was surprised when Melissa, another mom-blogger, commented on my discussion for the One Small Change project with an extremely generous offer. I had written about how I wanted to stop using disposable sleeping diapers for my girls (and the cloth ones we had weren't cutting it for long periods of sleep) but felt conflicted about buying more cloth diapers when my youngest is already a toddler. Melissa said she could spare some diapers because she didn't need as many as she had for her daughter.
A couple of weeks later, a package arrived at our door containing a huge stack of Fuzzibunz and other pocket diapers, along with a huge stack of various types of liners (stuffers? not even sure what they're called). We were thrilled! I'm happy to say that I haven't bought Bojey a single disposable sleeping diaper since the last package ran out (literally the day the box arrived at our door.) Here are some of the darling diapers hanging on the line:And here's the darling Bojey wearing one of them:This is my first experience with pocket diapers, and I LOVE them. I've always used cotton prefolds with covers because I used a diaper service in California when I was teaching, and that's what they used. When we moved, I still had all my covers, so I just bought (and inherited) cotton prefolds. If I were to recommend diapers to a new mom, I now think I might recommend pocket diapers, or perhaps a combination of pockets and prefolds. They are so soft, and they keep Bojey so dry and comfy for sleeping. I have to admit that the cuteness factor comes into play as well...
So thank you, Melissa! Melissa blogs at Until Wednesday Calls, where she shares sewing projects, crafting, recipes, and more. She's also blogging from Canada, like me. Go over there and visit for some creative inspiration!
