#ChangingDiapers Twitter Party with Kelly Wels (10/18)

It's officially released!  The Mom's Choice Awards winning book; Changing Diapers, The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering by Kelly Wels.  Changing Diapers is now available in print and e-reader and it's already landed itself on a few Amazon Top 10 lists.  Cloth diaper retailers around the globe are now stocking Kelly's book.  Amazon offers her book in both print and e-reader versions.  You can read my full review on The Eco Chic blog about why I think this is the essential guide book for any parent trying to decide if cloth diapers are right for their family.  When I showed this book to my son I had him look on page 191 (the page where Kelly lists me as a popular blog dedicated for fluff) he thought I was famous!  It was really cute actually. Anyways...join us on Tuesday, October 18th as we celebrate the official launch of Changing Diapers, The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering.  We have a ton of awesome sponsors who have donated amazing prizes just for you.  Oh, and ...

Changing Diapers – A Hip Mom’s Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering

Changing Diapers book review

I am so honored to be a part of our growing cloth diapering community in which we all share one mission - to spread the word that modern cloth diapering can be hip, fun, and easy. Modern cloth diapering is no longer limited to pre-folds, rubber pants, and pins.  But how do you share this information with your friends, family and loved ones?  For me I share it online here on my blog.  I share it with friends who are pregnant or have children in diapers. It's a shame that there isn't a guide book that I can hand out and share with those friends because I can't teach them everything that I know in one conversation. Oh wait, there is a guide book to cloth diapers! My good friend, Kelly Wels, has been working on this guide book for several years now and I almost cried when I received my advanced copy a few months ago.  Changing Diapers - The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering is the essential guide to cloth diapering today.  I wish I had this little treasure 3 years ago when I ...

#changingdiapers Twitter Party Recap

I think I'm still on my "Twitter High" - you know that feeling you get after a fun filled @EcoChicParties Twitter Party!  We had over 675 people on the RSVP list and I hear that my website crashed for a few minutes and wouldn't let everyone register.  I seriously need to get more techie (or hire someone techie) to help me speed my poor blogs up a bit.  I'm savvy with many things but not with that! If you were able to make it you know that we had a ton of fun with @KellyWels talking about her new book; Changing Diapers, The Hip Mom's Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering. With over 20 sponsors and over 75 prizes to be awarded there was not a moment to spare. It was fabulous seeing all our sponsors present and tweeting with you all - I can't thank them enough but I'm sure you can think of some ways to help with that.  Every time you "Like" or "Follow" or comment on their pages please be sure to say thank you for their role in the party.  Without them there would be no prizes and without ...

Changing Diapers – A Twitter Party with Kelly Wels


I am so excited to be hosting the #ChangingDiapers Twitter Party that is taking place Tuesday, June 7th at 9:00pm ET on Twitter.  Cloth diaper expert (and a personal friend of mine) Kelly Wels is launching her new book, Changing Diapers, The Hip Mom’s Guide to Modern Cloth Diapering (available for pre-order now) with a big party and lots of baby prizes including cloth diapers, baby related products, and breastfeeding resources. The book promotes the convenience of cloth diapering while discussing every aspect of modern cloth diapering.  Topics discussed in the book include; Why Choose Cloth Diapers?, How to Wash Your Cloth Diapers and even a chapter that discusses Daddies and Diapers. “As the depressed state of the economy butts up against the ecological green movement, more eco-friendly and cost-conscious moms tend to be looking at cloth diapers as a way to save money and the environment.” Says Wels.  “Modern cloth diapers are really him, functional, and work just as well as, if ...

Cloth Diaper Interview with Natali Morris


DAY 8 - Interview with Natali Morris about her 30 Day Cloth Diapering Challenge.  I've marked this as one of the 30 reasons I love cloth diapers because I have had the opportunity to 'meet' some amazing people since we started using cloth diapers.  Not only have I been talking with Natali this month; in the past year I've worked with many of the popular cloth diaper brands here on the blog (and at Eco Chic Parties).  I've also had the opportunity to actually meet and have lunch with Jennifer Labit - owner of bumGenius, I shared an entire weekend with Kelly Wels from during BlogHer, and have an amazing friendship with Julie Elkstrom - owner of name just a few!  Here is my interview with Natali: The Eco Chic:  Did your parents use cloth diapers on you? Natali:  No! When my mom learned I was doing this she was a little indignant. She said, “Your sister and you were just fine with disposables!” But then she helped me cloth diaper ... [ Read More ]

Meet Kelly Wels – Owner of


During my long weekend in NYC for BlogHer I had the opportunity to bond with one very awesome lady - Mrs. Kelly Wels- the owner of, Kelly's Closet and The Cloth Diaper Whisperer (stop laughing Mel and Cindy - my besties IRL who giggle at me and my online life).  I made plans ahead of time to meet up with Kelly for multiple reasons - primarily because I didn't really know a lot of other blogger's and neither did she.  Kelly has always been willing to work with me on both of my blogs and with multiple projects related to cloth diapering and I was super excited to finally meet her in real life.  What I didn't expect was to come home with such a wonderful new friend. Kelly is married and has three adorable little kids ages 12, 10, and 2.  Her oldest (Olivia - 12) helps out in the warehouse and is learning the business quite well.  When asked if she was done having kids the response was "I don't know!"  She purely loves being a mother and raising her kids - in cloth ...
