Kerri and Ashley have been fans of The Leaky Boob for quite a while now, having found the support and encouragement here that are the primary reason for TLB’s existence. They are now WAHM’s (Work At Home Mom) that love making hybrid fitted cloth diapers. They call their business Binky D Diapers, and are interested in sharing their love of cloth diapering with our Leaky community, because let’s face it: breastfeeding isn’t the only aspect of caring for a baby, and we all need to consider what option is best for our baby when it comes to the natural bi-product that breastfeeding (and any other feeding) inevitably brings. : ) Kerri and Ashley answer a few questions about cloth diapering and are offering a fun giveaway opportunity too!
TLB: What inspired you to start Binky D Diapers?
Ashley: I started cloth diapering my son and was looking for a overnight solution for my heavy wetter, I ended up realizing I was pretty decent at making them myself and found my niche. Since I loved making them and people were interested in buying them I just dove right in to making Binky D Diapers. It was meant to be.
TLB: What would you like TLB readers to know about your diapers?
Ashley: Binky D Diapers are made with quality supplies. We offer a few different styles of diapers so that you are able to find what works for your little one. We offer day fitteds, Nigh D Night diapers that feature a double layer of fleece and Wind Pro overnight diapers for really heavy wetters. We also will be introducing a Slim Fit line in the very near future.
TLB: What would you tell someone who was considering whether or not to use cloth diapers?
Ashley: Try to not overthink it. There is tons of info on the web for cloth diapering and it can all be really overwhelming for those trying to make the switch. I always suggest trying a couple of each style of diaper and just finding what works best for you and your little one. Its really easy and not as complicated as it seems.
TLB: Do you exclusively use cloth diapers on your own children?
Ashley: When my son is home from childcare we exclusively use cloth diapers. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a childcare facility in my area that would be supportive of our choice. Hopefully as more and more families make the switch to a more natural way of diapering these facilities will become more accepting of it.
TLB: What is your favorite breastfeeding tip?
Ashley: In the early days of breastfeeding as hard as it is don’t doubt yourself or your body. Just lay in bed and enjoy your newborn with as much skin to skin as possible. You can do this.
