Have you ever used or are you simply interested in using cloth diapers?
For years I was curious but intimidated by them.
My children all have sensitive skin but after my second child began having terrible rashes and blisters from his diapers, I sought out a solution. Regardless of how often I changed him, switched brands or even after applying three full size tubes of diaper rash cream every single week, I was desperate. During a changing, I discovered a blister about the size of the tip of my thumb. That was enough!
So I delved into cloth diapering. A friend told me not to use creams on my son’s rash and to only put him in a cloth diaper before bed. I figured she didn’t understand the extent of his rash, but would trust her advice.
The next morning the rash was completely gone! And the blister was significantly smaller.
It was so cool to see that his skin could heal itself so quickly, especially when his delicate skin wasn’t being bombarded with the chemicals used in typical paper diapers.
For the record, I haven’t bought a tube of diaper rash ointment in 8 years!
While attending an Above Rubies family camp a few years ago, I met Christina and her family. They immediately caught my eye and I was so impressed with the interpersonal relationships within her family! Her daughters were some of the nicest girls I’ve met and both Christina and her husband were courteous and friendly.

I visited with them again this year and learned that she owns a wonderful online store called Fruit of the Womb, (Isn’t that the cutest name ever?!) where you can find cloth diapers, covers, inserts and pre-folds, woolies, burp clothes, diaper bags, and more.
Christina sent along a fantastic One Size diaper that has plenty of stretch and flexibility, and it’s fantastic. My little guy will be able to wear this for at least another year (until we start to potty train). And the quality is absolutely superb! This mama knows her stuff! I snapped a picture of him modeling his cute cloth-covered bum, but my computer isn’t accepting outside images right now. 🙁
But that’s OK because you can visit her site and see the plethora of choices that she offers!
