Meet Jenn Reinhardt!
My real life experience and common sense advice will hopefully help make the choice of using cloth diapers a simple one. It’s only as complicated as we let it be!
I am not a professional writer. My life is not one you will find in a glossy magazine. I am just a mom who wants to share what I know and love about cloth diapers. I want you to know that I am here to learn from you as well. I always like to say you never know where the next great piece of advice will come from. Once you’ve stuck around long enough you know I am always preaching about common sense. Anyone can give you advice and recommendations until the cows come home. I want you to do your own thorough research, use that common sense and think about how it all applies to you and your family before making a decision. I’m here to help you with that as much as I can.
I went to college for business management. The University at Albany in New York actually. In 2008 my dream of owning my own business came true. When I was 27 years old (after a year of blood, sweat and tears) I purchased my very own business; Curves. I truly loved being able to go in every day and help people feel better about themselves. I loved to teach and share my knowledge. It made me feel good to know that I was making a difference in people’s lives.
At the encouragement (or should I say unrelenting insistence) of one of my sweet Curves members I joined eHarmony. That is how my husband Mike and I met. I suppose it was meant to be. We were married two years later, and a year after that had our beautiful little girl, Sophia.
While I was pregnant with Sophia, an acquaintance of mine mentioned that I should try cloth diapers. At first I was totally overwhelmed. I was so confused by all the information I had found that I almost gave up before I even started! The first time I googled cloth diapers, I was so confused I remember thinking “Oh, Hell NO! But once I was able to see a cloth diaper in person, I knew that I could do it. I have been in love with fluff ever since!
After a few years of trying for another baby, we welcomed our sweet, adorable and oh so good-natured (but not a good sleeper) daughter Norah to our family. She is now happily wearing some of her sister’s cloth diapers and a few new ones of her own.
It hasn’t always been easy. We have had our share of laundry problems and skin sensitivity issues. But I sincerely believe that cloth diapers are the best thing for my baby and I want to help spread my love of cloth diapers one fluffy tush at a time!
