It's time once again for our Baby of the Week!! Let's welcome our Week 2 Baby, Parker, and his mama, Shauna! Parker is 6 months old and still fairly new to cloth, but Shauna tells us about their experience so far. FB: What is Parker's favorite food? Shauna: We have only recently introduced solids, but so far homemade green beans are in the lead! FB: How long have you been cloth diapering? Shauna: Parker is our third child, and the first we have cloth diapered, so 6 months. FB: Why did you make the cloth diaper switch? Shauna: We originally decided to cloth for cost savings and a reduction of trash in the environment, both of which have been wonderful, but our little guy has sensitive skin which is not irritated at all by cloth diapers and wipes so we knew we made the right decision for him! FB: What is your favorite component/aspect of cloth diapering? Shauna: For my husband it is not having to rush to the store when our diaper supply is low. For me, I cannot resist our little guy's adorable fluffy butt! FB: Do you have any tips for moms making the switch? Shauna: Do not commit to one brand straight away. There may be good deals on certain brands if you buy more at one time, but if they do not work for your little one you are stuck with an inadequate stash until you can invest in those that work well. FB: Do you have a "Funniest Cloth Diaper Moment?" Shauna: Well, we haven't had many as we are still newbies, but watching my husband put on a CD for the first time was rather amusing to me!

Today, we'd like to welcome our very first baby of the week, Lillian! Adria, Lillian's Mom shared her cloth diapering journey in our Q & A below. We hope you enjoy! FB: How long have you been cloth diapering? Adria: We started when Lillian was 7 weeks old. We were going to start sooner, but she had some belly button woes, so we held off until it was healed up. We've never looked back! FB: Why did you make the cloth diaper switch? Adria: We decided before she was born that we were going to cloth diaper. I have a few friends who use cloth and it just seemed like a smart idea. I ordered all of her diapers before she was born they were the first baby purchase I made! FB: What is your favorite component/aspect of cloth diapering? Adria: We never run out of diapers, and it's so much less expensive than using disposable. Also, she always smells fresh and clean, and we've had zero blowouts! FB: Do you have any tips for parents making the switch? Adria: I feel like some of the biggest questions we get are about laundering...I don't find it to be difficult at all, just a few extra loads of laundry each week. But be sure to find a reliable source for information on the best way to wash your diapers it will save a lot of headaches. FB: Do you have a "Funniest Cloth Diaper Moment?" Adria: It was probably her reaction when we put a cloth diaper on her for the first time. She had just found her smile the week before, and as soon as we put on that first FuzziBunz diaper, she smiled so big...her father and I were laughing and smiling right there with her :) Lillian knows what's good for her! ;) Thank you, Adria for giving us a peek into your experiences with cloth diapering!
