Share your story with words

If you don’t want to join me for a podcast, I also accept written guest posts for consideration. I love sharing your story, even if it’s been shared before. Your experience is valid and worthy.

2020 was a year of continued growth and learning.

2020 reinforced conversations that I knew needed to change and were changing. I started the year off conversing with parents who had difficult or different wash routines, and ended the year chatting with amazing brands and content creators.

I believe the cloth diaper space is changing, but it’s n0t without resistance. We are learning to listen and observe. We are learning to ask questions and not dismiss. The biggest challenge going into 2021, will be to not let this get to our heads, and continue to recognize the voices missing, and the voices dismissed.

Leave the spaces you do not feel safe in. Leave the spaces you recognize crushing and hurting others. Create safe spaces. Champion for more inclusivity in this space.

Most Downloaded

Show 42 of the Cloth Diaper Podcast with Elisha remains one of the most downloaded podcasts of 2020 with over 900 downloads this year.

This conversation is a great insight into the life of a Cloth Diaper Parent and the challenges that may or may not arise including how she dealt with Haters, Ammonia and buying used. I love talking with guests like this because I know it helps other parents feel a little less alone.

Always a Favourite

Show 01 of the Cloth Diaper Podcast about the different types of Cloth Diapers remains to be one of the most downloaded shows of all times.

Truthfully, this show embarrasses me because its the first show I recorded and edited. I feel that I have come a long way in the past few years and that I should re record this show to better serve you.

Most Popular Release

Show 40 with Heather Seguin, the owner of Lilly & Frank Cloth Diapers, was the most popular show of the year with the most downloads within the first month – a 390.

Heather shares her story of designing, learning and growing her business. This is a must-have Canadian Fitted Diaper company.

 

Personal Recommendations & Favorite Shows

I recorded a lot of great conversations and so many of you had me in laughter or tears. The Podcast is one of my favourite ways to connect with other adults and its’ been a doozy of a year, so seeing your face for the first time when we Zoom often fills my heart with so much joy. I absolutely love sharing and listening to your stories and adventures. I hate editing the shows – so I have dreams of monetizing to be able to record out but hey, that’s for another year.

PS. Many of my guests respond to me with the following “can’t believe you want to talk to me” and I want you to know that you are a superstar and your story is important. I am just a mom with a microphone and I am as humbled and in awe of your presence as you are of mine. If you’re wondering, oh man, I wish I could be on the podcast but she hasn’t reached out – reach out to me. I want to know that you want to be on the show.

Most Fun to Record

The most fun show was Show 43 with Kate because I had the pleasure of having Kate come to my house and record with me in my little office. Nothing beats that, and it’s a pandemic now so that can’t happen again.

Show That Made Me Fall in Love with a Product

Getting the chance to chat with Aisha of Diaper Dawgs in shows 54 of the Cloth Diaper Podcast gave me a second look and understanding at a product that I misjudged. This was a great conversation and I think you should consider this awesome product.

Story I Never Shared

In the Spring of 2020, I had a phone call with Sharona of Geffen Baby and I was supposed to write an article about her story. I never did. 

I learnt so much from her in that hour long phone call – so much that I share in my DM’s and my stories, but I need to still write this story and share it with you. 

2021 Cloth Diaper Podcast Shows

I have already recorded some amazing shows to share in 2021, including:

  • Esembly Diaper
  • Krunchy Kulture
  • Blythe Life
  • Little Fanny Pants

And I have some amazing emails with potential guests including big and small brands alike. 

Professional Cloth Diaper Educator

Bailey brings 5+ years of cloth diapering experience and conversation to the cloth diaper space. She's not just your every day mom blogger sharing her experience - Bailey is immersed in the cloth diaper community learning from other parents and growing as an individual. She wants to find the cloth diaper solution that truly works for you.

Bailey believes we need to stop and listen to cloth diapering parents. We need to recognize our own bias and preferences and focus on solutions that work for you, not us. The Cloth Diaper community needs to recognize the privilege of being able to cloth diaper, and provide spaces for more conversations and stories.

Cloth diapering is not about rules but about our own strength as parents to do the best we can for our children with the resources available.
