Changing Diapers: Review and Giveaway

I've never been a big fan of change.  I get used to it.  I adapt.  I don't like it.  But I've learned to accept that change is inevitable: changing jobs, changing schools, changing houses, changing diapers...

Wait, changing diapers?

Yep.  Diapers.  I've done a LOT of diaper changing over the last 6 1/2 years.  A lot.  In fact, there's never been a time in 6 1/2 years that NO ONE in my house wore diapers at least part time!  I've changed all types of diapers: wet diaper, dry diapers, poopy diapers, disposable diapers, cloth diapers...

One of the biggest diaper changes I made occurred about a year ago, when I changed from disposable to cloth!  What a scary change that was!  I'd contemplated cloth before Little Lou was born, but was quite frankly afraid of the poop.  I didn't even think about it when Bugsy was born.  I didn't have time, when he was a baby, to think about washing diapers, stripping diapers, folding and sorting diapers.  I didn't even think about it, honestly, when Stinky was born!  It wasn't until about a year ago, when Stinky was about 8 months old and our budget needed to find a little wiggle room, that I decided to give cloth a go.

I didn't have any advice.  I didn't have a cloth diaper "mentor."  I didn't have a clue!

I wish Kelly Wels had written her book, Changing Diapers, back then!  

Back a year ago.  Back 4 years ago.  6 years ago, even!

"Kelly Wels is a leading cloth diaper expert and advocate who has a passion for helping parents make informed decisions when it comes to how they diaper their babies."  She's big in the cloth diaper community!  If you need an opinion on a certain diaper, ask Kelly.  She's probably tested it.  If you need advice on how to care for or even begin using cloth, Ask Kelly!  She's the go-to girl for anything cloth!

Kelly's taken a ton of her cloth diaper knowledge and fused it all together seamlessly in her beautiful new book, Changing Diapers!  If you are considering using cloth diapers, this book is a must-have.  If you know someone who is considering cloth, or who is pregnant, or who knows someone who is pregnant, this book is for you.  If you're a cloth diaper newbie with lots of questions, it's for you.  Even if you're a cloth diaper veteran, I bet you could glean some very useful knowledge from Changing Diapers!  Kelly shares a little bit about everything cloth, and a lot about a few things, in this very comprehensive cloth diapering "how-to!"  The beautiful pictures and quick wit make it a great fast and easy read.  You'll love it!

Changing diapers is just $17.95 when you visit Kelly's store!!  It's a great baby shower gift, especially paired with a newborn or one size cloth diaper!  For a limited time, Kelly is offering a "Buy Two, Get One Free with Free Shipping" deal when you buy through her site!  I know you're thinking you don't really NEED 3 books, but you do!  You might not need them for yourself, but you know one or two or three people that do need them!

Want to give cloth a try?  Are you already a cloth diapering mama?  Know someone else who needs a diaper?  Kelly Wels is going to GIVE one of you a Fuzzibunz One Size diaper!  Pick up a copy of Changing Diapers, and give them together as an awesome shower gift!  You know you want to!

I was given this book at no charge in order to facilitate a review.  I was not compensated in any other way.  All opinions are my own.
