Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Changing Diapers {#clothdiaperaccessories}

Changing Diapers {#clothdiaperaccessories}

I was thrilled when I found out Changing Diapers: The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering, written by Kelly Wels, agreed to be a sponsor for the Accessorize our stash in August giveaway.

Kelly Wels is a leading cloth diaper expert.  She has three children.  Kelly was the founder and owner of Kelly's Closet and Diaper Shops, but in 2010, she decided turn her business over to someone else and pursue cloth diaper advocacy full time.

Changing Diapers is a quick easy read.  The first chapter is on "Why Choose Cloth Diapers?"  My favorite is "Reason #2: You Can Save Big Bucks."  She then goes on to write cloth diaper talk, getting started with cloth diapers, diapering stages, cloth diaper accessories, fixing common cloth diaper problems, and washing cloth diapers.

What I liked about the book: I loved how concise it is.  Kelly explains everything clearly, but doesn't ramble on in her explanations.  I also like how everything is together.  When I was pregnant, I relied on many different websites to explain many of the things in this book, especially the different cloth diapers.  I enjoyed the illustrations, especially folding flat diapers.  I recommend any parent that is thinking about cloth diapering and wants an easy overview of cloth diapers to read this book.

  6. I'm sure I'd love reading this book - I bet it would help me better explain cloth diapering to skeptics. As of now I can only say, "you just have to try it and you'll see! It's not gross!"

  19. Saving money was the number one reason we switched to cloth! It's so nice not to have to run to the store to get diapers at 6pm on a Friday. Ugh. And they have so many cute colors and prints!

  21. Though I've been cloth diapering for over three years now, I would love to learn more from a resource like this book. There are several kinds of diapers that I know very little about - like wool, for instance.
