|Nicki with her two son's, Luke and Daniel|
I am also married to one of the most wonderful people in the world, Corey. He is a truck driver, so he is barely ever home...which gives us less time to fight haha. But really, it is a joy being married to him and I wouldn't have it any other way!
I used to work at Disney World for 2 years, hence my playing attitude. If you are a follow of my facebook, you know that it is a bunch of fun and games over there.
I started CDing when my son was diagnosed as being allergic to disposables at 8 months. As a first time mommy, I had no idea that could even happen! I was so scared to start CDing and I ordered the first cloth diapers I saw and put it out of my head until they arrived. I purchased 12 bumGenius' that day and when they came in the mail 4 days later...I found my new addiction. I went and prepped them and started putting them on my son. He seemed to love them and then I started looking for more. They were too cute. I ended up purchasing around 95 diapers. But I wanted to tell the rest of the world about CDing and how amazing it was. So I started converting everyone around me. I got 3 of my neighbors converted to CDing, and I loved it.....and was not satisfied yet. So I started this blog. I never thought I would get this big this fast (I only opened it up in the end of August) but thanks to mostly Dibs! and Sew Crafty Baby Diapers, here I am!
I hope you enjoy the blog and let me know if you ever have any questions about CDing or anything like that. I am here to help.

Hi, my name is Donna. I am actually Nicki's mother. I also have two other children ages 22 and 6. I obviously do not cloth diaper, but trust me, I know more about cloth diapering then I am sure a lot of people know. I may not live right next door to Nicki, but even though we are 500 miles away, she still has to show me all her new cloth diapers over Skype. I think I have had to sit through her showing me every single cloth diaper that she has at least 3 or 4 times! I have recently switched over from disposable pads to cloth ones and I am very interested in this whole life style. My daughter has opened my eyes to the possibilities of things being better then disposable all the time. I can't wait to start reviewing cloth pads for everyone and hopefully some other eco-friendly products!
I am a stay-at-home father of 3, and have been married to my beautiful wife for 10 years now. Our children are 11, 9, and 2 years old. JoJo, our 2 year old, is the only girl, so I spend most of my days spoiling her. Everything about our family is far from normal. We have a lot of fun around our house because 4 of the 5 of us have dwarfism. My wife if the odd ball at 6' tall and we keep her around to change the light bulbs. :) As you can probably imagine, it can be quite comical. The ability to take a joke, and understand sarcasm is a must around here. I love sharing opinions and knowledge, but most of all, I love saving money as much as my wonderful wife loves spending it.
|Pip and his son Finn|
So I'm Rob, but feel free to call me Pip, everyone does. I'm a 34 year old career firefighter/emt, who happens to be a complete workout freak, crossfit, marathons, triathlons and adventure racing are really my thing. So you're probably already asking yourself, how did this guy, end up here. Well I'm also a dad, by far my best life accomplishment. Finn was born on June 6, 2010 and has been in cloth diapers since he returned home from the hospital on June 10th. When my wife brought up the idea of cloth diapering to me before his birth, I reluctantly agreed, under one condition. That when it failed, I would be able to tell her how right I was and how wrong she was. Insert foot in mouth now. I honestly think this was the best decision we have ever made, so much so that Pip 2, who will be arriving in Feb 2013, will be exclusively cloth diapered as well. My wife returned to work full time , so we work our schedules around each others, so Finn and I have loads of daddy day care time. I'm proud to say I haven't broke him yet . However a trip to the ER would just be a visit to see mommy, considering she works there. I'm hoping to bring some fresh ideas to the site, from a workout freak stay at home dad point of view.
