Post contains affiliate links. 6 years ago I sat down and pecked out the first few posts on Change-Diapers (then hosted on Blogspot). I had switched my middle child to cloth diapers and was having a hard time finding all of the information. Bits here, pieces there and lots of contradictions. I was far from an expert but hoped that sharing my journey would help others in the same position. I jokingly say that you can find a “cloth diaper blogger” on every street corner now days but that wasn’t the case in 2009!
Here I am 6 years later, still blogging and having cloth diapered two children during that time. Earlier this year I bid on a package Cottonbabies contributed to a charity auction and won. I tucked away the solid colors to use as prizes and saved the Jules print for this! I’m not sure if Jules is still anyone’s unicorn but one of you will win a Bumgenuis 4.0 in Jules print from me and lots of great sponsors are offering prizes as well!
I was not asked to write nor was I compensated for this post. If you click an affiliate link and make a purchase I may receive a small commission – thank you! Phew! My laundry is done, I’m all unpacked, photos uploaded and notes (almost) sorted through. I have several posts for you but there are so many new things from Cottonbabies, it needed its own!
My son is 3 1/2 now and I think I can call him weaned. It was an incredibly gradual, gentle process and was rather different than what I expected. The other day he pointed to my shirt hanging down as I leaned over and said “that’s so I can nurse!”
He hasn’t nursed for nearly a month but I am so happy I truly allowed him to self-wean. I’ve talked about my experience breastfeeding my older children, and how I felt they weren’t able to really self-wean. When my oldest was a newborn, even the idea of nursing a 1 year old was foreign to me.
