Monday Mommies: Christi H.

Hi fellow addicts, This weeks Monday Mommy is Christi H! Check out her great story below!

Hi! My name is Christi, but these days I’m usually just referred to as “Adah’s Momma.” She’s my 7 month old darling that I fall more in love with each day. We live in
southern Minnesota where Daddy is Pastor at a small country church.
Adah’s tush resides only in cloth diapers. I have very sensitive skin and I figured my kid would likely have some of the same tendencies, so we decided to go cloth and haven’t looked back! Our family loves cloth for many reasons including the money saving aspect (although once you become addicted, it’s hard to stop buying them), it’s so much nicer on those adorable baby butts, and it’s just darn cute.
People’s reaction when they hear that we cloth diaper is usually admiration. “Oh, I could never do that” I often hear. And then I say, “Yes you can!” Cloth diapers these days sure are a lot different than even 10 years ago. The variety of options and ease of use make cloth diapering a lot more accessible than most people think.

When I first started diapering Adah in cloth, I made a bunch of contour diapers with an extra microfiber soaker. I planned to use these with Snappies and Thirsties or Bummis covers. After a while, I discovered all-in-ones (AIOs). Still loyal to Thirsties—gotta love the double leg gusset—I purchased a few of these.
While I liked the AIOs, the drying time was killing me, so I decided to try some pocket diapers, which offered the convenience of AIO with less drying time. A love affair was born. I experimented with several brands and styles, but these days I primarily use Nubunz and Bum Genius 3.0 for daytime and Fuzzibunz with an extra insert for overnight.

At first I thought I’d be a liberal cloth diaperer. You know, when it was convenient for me, when we were at home, we’d use them, but when we went out or on longer trips or overnight, we’d use disposable. Instead, I have become so convinced of the benefits of cloth diapering that we are hard-core full-timers. A disposable diaper hasn’t touched my Adah’s tush in months. We’ve gone so far as to have gotten rid of the disposable wipes too! Who needs all the extra ingredients and to spend the extra money and fill the landfill with that trash? I make my own and even sell them in my Etsy store (http://www.etsy.com/shop/christihagen)

I love converting my friends to cloth diapers. So far I have managed to convince no less than 4 people to make the switch! My biggest piece of advice to someone interested in cloth diapers is that
it isn’t as hard as you think; you can really do this! And, invest in a diaper sprayer. It’s worth every single penny.

--Christi H
