Hi! I just joined this forum and thought I would introduce myself. I am a WAHM to two kiddos, Emily who is 9 months and Christopher, who is 10 years.<br><br>
I used to cloth diaper my little sisters back 20 years ago, then cloth diapered my 10 year old part time (day cares would not do cloth diapers here). Now I, of course, cloth diaper my daughter.<br><br>
When Emily was born, the nurses grabbed out a disposable diaper to put on her... I said, "Wait! We don't use those!" and pointed to my diaper bag. Yes, I had a hospital birth... my dream was a home birth, but minor complications didn't permit. So, even her very first diaper was cloth.<br><br>
Anyway, Emily has been in cloth from day one and I am very proud to say that! Friends and family think I am crazy. Oh well. I made her very first cloth diaper! The one that was put on her less than an hour after her birth... and most others that she has worn.<br><br>
I am in business making diapers and other products. I am not sure that it is okay to mention my site name, so I will wait and see if I am given the okay on that.<br><br>
This looks like a great board, and such a nice group of mamas!<br><br>
Teri

Welcome to the diapering board! Congrats on cd-ing your dd since birth - thats great! I didn't start cd-ing my DS until he was 4 mos, but he's been in cds for 3 months now, and I plan on cd-ing all my future babies from birth.<br><br>
I'm not sure if you're allowed to mention your website (I think that is considered spamming) but you can pay to advertise your WAHM business in your signiture. I'm not really sure how it works but there are plenty of other great WAH mamas that can help you. There is even a WAHM section on this site where you can chat with them.<br><br>
Anyway, we're always happy to have another cd-making mama around <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Thank you guys! I am enjoying reading the threads here. You guys are cracking me up with all of the little smilies and pregnant women, tests, etc. This is really cute!<br><br>
I am a banner ad addict.... have started clicking on the ads and checking things out... will need to see about the Diaper Hyena... looks really good. Very artistic site.<br><br>
I see that many people here are in love with pre-folds... I hated them when I had to use the plain, white, birdseye ones 20 years ago, but just started using some organic ones on my daughter and do like them again! I have some snappis coming in to try..... I just may go back to pre-folds!<br><br>

I don't use prefolds, either :LOL Dh would never be able to understand that folding and snappi-ing, so we just use fitteds and wool covers mostly.<br><br>
I have seen your site before Teri. I actually stumbled onto it by clicking on a link in your signiture in a coop I belong to. I was impressed so I immediately came to MDC and posted a link to check out your site :LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hyena.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hyena"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/run.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="run"> I like the gussetts! I'm intimidated by them to actually try sewing dipes with gussetts.. looks tough, although I do have the poo pockets pattern, perhaps I will give it a shot sometime.<br><br>
I am considering turning my daper making into a biz. Making dipes is just so much fun!<br><br>
We have a sewing ands craft forum, too, here at MDC. It doesn't see too much traffic, though. It would be nice if the forum was more active.<br><br>
Anyhoo, welcome! Nice to meet you.

Making cloth diapers is fun! You should turn it into a business.... it is very fulfilling.<br><br>
I love designing... I think of different stuff all the time. Fall is my favorit... I am thinking of leaves and gourds! My little daughter will be wearing dipes all fall that resemble different ornamental gourds. I am addicted to dying now too!<br><br>
Gussets are a pita to do at first, but once you get used to them, they aren't hard. The thing with gussets is that once you use them, you fall in love with them. My daughter nurses every hour, so her poos are HUGE! Anything but gussets leaks. So, I can't make my diapers without them. Do try the poo-pockets pattern... I have heard only good things about it. If you want to attach aplix or snaps to it, though, I would extend the tabs.<br><br>
I have a friend who is expecting, so I am enjoying designing fun diapers for her little monkey! I can't wait!!!!!!<br><br>
NAK - if I'm here, I'm NAK.<br><br>

WELCOME Teri!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Ok I gather you make dipes with gussets? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I SWEAR by gussets and agree they are easy once you figure them out. I started out (not counting on the few bought dipes) with poopockets that I sewed up and if it weren't for those diapers I'd probably given up cding because I was sick of the poo leaks from the other cloth diapers I had.<br><br><br><span>HEATHER or PAM, is it against rules if I ask someone else besides Teri to post a link so I can peek at her site?</span><br><br>
If it is, Teri, just PM me the link <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> I love window shopping <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> wished I could splurge and spend, but xmas IS coming up lol.
