Hello! I am new here. I'm not great with introductions as I am fairly shy so bare with me please.

I've been lurking for a few days and already learned a few things so figured I'd join and 'talk' to you guys. I have two children-a 2 year old daughter and a 5 month old son. I just started cloth diapering. I had wanted to with my daughter but she was so long, lean and a heavy wetter that nothing seemed to work and I got discouraged. My son has been the opposite! The same thing with breast feeding but there were other obstacles to that which I did not know about when I had my daughter. I'm hoping to learn and meet other moms who are interested in similar things. When I talk at work about my children/parenting I get a lot of negative/odd feedback and I'm not even that 'crunchy'. Oh well, here's to a new meeting, fresh perspectives and new friends.




Mama of Lilly (3yo), Jack (12mths) and ? due 9/20

We're trying our hand at homesteading in the woods of Central MA with our kids, corgis and a menagerie.

I can't spell and I love to craft.

Hi Cat!  Welcome to MDC.  I'm a MA mom as well.  You might really enjoy the Breastfeeding forums.

This is a great place to talk about cloth diaper and breastfeeding and all kinds of other "crunchy" things.  :-)  I lived in central MA for awhile, too, just outside Worcester.

It's nice to meet you also!  We'll be traveling up to MA (Hubbardston) in August.


ETA: I forgot to mention that your younger LO is almost the same age as mine! Our daughter is seven months.
