Review And Giveaway: Changing Diapers by Kelly Wels
If you or someone you know has been toying with the idea of cloth diapering, the new book by Kelly Wels called Changing Diapers The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering would be a great addition to your library. In fact it would be a lovely gift, along with a diaper or two, to any pregnant or new mom that has an interest in cloth diapering.
As much as I love all the cloth diapering websites, blogs, and message boards, they can be extremely overwhelming. Especially to someone new to cloth. When I was pregnant with Munchkin, I did hours of research on what I thought would be THE PERFECT system and I got overwhelmed and gave up. I managed to cloth diaper baby number 2 successfully after months of research.
This book would have saved me a lot of time and effort! Kelly Wels has compiled all of the basics of what you need to know to start and continue cloth diapering your little one. Another plus is that she's managed to do all this in a very non-judgmental, friendly, way!
Changing Diapers highlights:
-Just how easy it is to use Modern Cloth diapers. Dispelling common misbeliefs!
-Why someone would want to use cloth. (Think environmental and $$$ savings!)
-The different types of cloth diapers that are available
-How diapering changes as your baby gets older
-Broaching the subject with daycare
-Some basic trouble shooting
-Demystifies all of the cloth diaper acronyms and terms (AIO, AI2, pocket, etc)
