Monday Mommies: Robyn L.

Todays Monday Mommy is Robyn L. Thank you for sharing!

1. Tell us a little about yourself, where you are located, how many kids you have, little ones in cloth, etc.-
I am a SAHM/WAHM in Oregon. My husband and I have 5 children, two together, and three from previous relationships. I have one sweet daughter in cloth right now, but have cloth diapered two of my other children for very short periods of time. My youngest is my first baby to be cloth diapered exclusively!

2. What made you decide to give cloth diapers a try?
I decided to give cloth diapers a try because of our budget primarily, then I fell in love! I also love the environmental impact, and hate the thought of chemicals and paper on my babies bottom.

3. What did your family and friends think when you told them you were going to use cloth? What did they think when they seen the new modern diapers available?
They thought I was old fashioned and a little bit crazy. Well, not all of them. But they all thought it would be so much work and be messy and gross.

4. What was your very first cloth diaper? Do you still use it?
My very first cloth diaper was a Coolababy from Ebay. I do not still use it. Once I figured out that there were so many types and styles of cloth diapers out there, I branched out. Plus, I did not like the diapers.

5. What type of diapers does your stash primarily consist of; pockets, aio, one size, pre-folds, flats, hybrids, etc.? Which ones do you prefer to use? The first one you grab?
My stash mainly consists of Fuzzibunz pockets that were hand-me-downs, prefolds with homemade covers, and AIO's I made myself. I love pockets, and the one I grab first is a cute little Tinkerbell pocket I made.

6. Do you have a favorite place to hang out and talk or learn about cloth ; a blog, message board, facebook page, etc.?
I love all the Facebook cloth diaper pages, Cloth Diaper Addiction blog, The Cloth Diaper Whisperer blog, and I love blogging about cloth diapers and other mama stuff on my own blog "Quest for the Perfect Cloth Diaper". I also belong to a Yahoo CD group.

7. What cloth diapering item, besides diapers, do you consider to be a must-have accessory?
I would say wool, but I haven't had too much experience with it, so I will say my cloth wipes and wet bag!

8. Do you have any special ways to wash or strip your diapers?
I do a cold rinse, then a hot wash with either Rockin Green or Tide Free, then two more rinses. I strip my cloth diapers as needed with a blue Dawn, or I rock a soak.

9. If you could share just one tip with someone who is just starting out with cloth or considering using cloth, what would be your best piece of advice to them?
Don't buy all of one kind of diaper when you start. You will probably end up liking lots of different diapers and styles for different situations!
Come see me at Quest for the Perfect Cloth Diaper!
