Why did you start cloth diapering?
Naturally drawn to be a more natural parent and did some research about fragrances and parabens. This awareness has grown over the time about the environment.
Were you expecting to move overseas when you thought about cloth diapering?
Yes, a little bit. It was a little intimidating to think about it and moving and all the things.
She knew she’d have a home over. She brought flats and covers because she wasn’t sure what the washing situation was going to be there. She did bring some pockets and AIO for ease-of-life in other moments.
Google was really helpful for learning about the model of the machine, and translating things and learning about different products.
What was your biggest challenge over the past 15 months of cloth diapering?
Just figuring out that wash routine – and what to do and not to do.
What ever you believe, you’ll find a thousand arguments to agree with you.
It’s so conflicting, it’s a lot of trial and error. You need to find what works for you. And that’s just motherhood.
Is cloth diapering too much extra work if your partner is never home?
It’s only extra work if you make it extra work – in Kelsey’s opinion.
What did you bring overseas?
She knew the washers would be smaller and brought maybe 2-3 days worth of diapers – dozen flats or so, and a few others. She was washing daily with everything.
Now at home she’s transitioned into her stash of AIO and a little bit of everything.
Kelsey has a book – Help, My husband is barely home
She talks about her story of navigating through her journey in womanhood, motherhood, and self when she lost herself in her husbands career. She didn’t know who she was besides her husband and her kids. The book talks about how you can reclaim yourself.
It’s impossible to sustain a life where your only role is to be a wife and mother, but how do we find you.
what is something you could do today to get started on finding you?
It’s a journey, an 8 step process, and the first step is to acknowledge your situation and take note of where you are at. How are you feeling and what is it thats really going on in your life.
