Changing Diapers by Kelly Wels {#FluffyXmas Sponsor Spotlight}



I want to start out by saying how much I wished Changing Diapers existed when I first started cloth diapering. The only information I had was a very resourceful message board and a few internet sites. Nothing all in the same place and nothing as straight forward as this book. But after reading through it I've found a new love for cloth. Kelly Wels has really done an amazing job encompassing the world that is cloth diapering.

I'm so excited to be able to have this book available to give to friends who are interested in cloth diapering but need more information. I've had quite a few friends ask for cloth diapering resources and always have to email multiple links about different types of diapers and options. Now I just have to ship this book to them and I'm set! I still love having my friends over to show them exactly how cloth diapers work because I'm a visual learner but having this book as a resource for questions they may have at a later time is so great. This will be my staple baby shower gift from now on.

The best part about the book is it's simplicity and size. It's not overwhelming at all. And it's broken down quite nicely into different chapters that flow nicely. Plus you get extra tips and stories along the way to keep you entertained while you learn (don't you wish we had those in the text books in school?). And an added bonus? One of the diapering chapters is titled "Daddies and Diapers." How perfect is that? Cloth diapering is not just for mamas. Dads need to get involved too. My husband can wash cloth diapers and knows how to put on and use them too. He isn't as good at the folding and putting away part but I can do that. Getting dads involved in the process only makes it easier on both parents.

Kelly's research is extensive and she didn't just stop at one or two diapers or diaper shops. She reviewed and polled many, many cloth diapering mamas, stores and manufacturers. She not only went to the experts who make cloth diapers, she went to moms and dads who are using cloth diapers already. The information and research is put in a simple, easy to read form that even a sleep deprived mother or father can read and comprehend.

There are so many misconceptions when it comes to cloth diapering. When my in laws heard I was doing it they imagined dirty white cloths all over the place and diaper pins. Good to know there is a book that updates everyone to the new era of CDing!

This is a wonderful resource for new mothers. There are so many old ideas about cloth diapering out there - when we started my friends were shocked and told me I would be locked in my laundry room forever. So NOT the case! Love Kelly and this book!

This book would have been helpful when I first started CDing. I searched and searched internet site after site trying to find info. No one place had all the information I needed. It would have been nice to have it all in one concise location like this book. :)

Very cool. I'm so interested in seeing this book! It would also be a great book to just leave lying out when company comes, LOL. Make some cloth diapering converts that way!

I am a cd mama and have been since the birth of our son 3 hrs ago. I am always trying to guide friends I interested in trying cd. This book seems to be just the right tool to help even those with more experience.
