Cloth Re-vert?

So as I indicted in the introductory post, I first started using cloth diapers when toilet-training my eldest daughter.  I then used cloth dipes more-or-less exclusively when my second daughter was born (for her, as well as for eldest daughter at night).  Then they were both toilet trained, third daughter came along …..and well, I pretty much gave up the cloth dream for the ease of tossing something in the trash when I had a 4 year old, 2 year old, and an infant.

Well.  Let’s just say that Stephanie has always been wonderful – she would tease with wonderfully girlie prints, but she never gave me a hard time for switching back to disposable diapers.  However! She also failed to mention that once I would start working with her I would fall in love with cloth again.  Between all the easy and adorable options that are now available that weren’t around almost three years ago, and the charming blog posts from all our great fans, I think I am ready to re-join the cloth diapering band wagon.

My two and a half year old *really* needs to be toilet trained.  But there’s no reason why she shouldn’t wear a flippin cute pink diaper whilst doing so, am I right?  And as for my baby boy – well, he is leaking out of his diaper every night RIGHT NOW, so perhaps he needs an upgrade as well.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some shopping to do.

Maybe everyone has already seen this video, but I think it’s too adorable, witty, and well done not to share on this Friday afternoon.  TGIF!

Welcome!!

Welcome to our new blog for fans and friends of Abby’s Lane!  To kick this off, I’d like to share my story of how I became involved with Abby’s Lane.

I first became a customer back in 2005 when I purchased my first cloth diapers.  I was actually in the process of toilet training my first baby, and thought cloth diapers would help (which they totally did!).  I then purchased a ring sling from Stephanie – just the very basic sling.  I absolutely LOVED it and everywhere I went people were inquiring as to where I purchased it.   So I finally e-mailed Stephanie and asked her if she had some business cards which she could send to me so I could pass them out to people.

Now I am thrilled to be a member of Stephanie’s team to help her with her fabulous store.  And I look forward to working with all of you!

And now that I remember how well cloth diapers worked for toilet training my eldest daughter — think it’s time to *really* get started on training my youngest daughter!
