Re: Adopt a Newbie!!!!

500 posts and 3 mos member? that way we are sure that she is active in the forum and has enough "experience" with CD AND with diaperswappers. what do you think?

Re: Adopt a Newbie!!!!

Whoops... didn't read we were doing this a particular way.

Big Sister Available

My name's Erin, mum to James (3 years old ) and Julia (almost 10 months). I cloth diapered James for several months and then gave up due to an inadaquate stash and unsupportive significant other (Jonny). With Julia I started researching better cloth diapering options and convinced Jonny to get on board. We're tried just about every possible cloth diapering style and have settled on a nice mix of styles for different occasions. We started with mainly flats & covers, "graduated" to pockets, then eventually found a great love for fitteds and wool though I still love flats & covers and pockets for different reasons.

I was thinking about that but honestly I don't think anyone would volunteer to be a big sis unless they feel confident in giving advice and all that. Time cd'ing or posting isn't really an indicator KWIM?

Re: Adopt a Newbie!!!!

Big Sister available.

I am Ammie (35) and I have been CDing for 2 1/2 years. I am a SAHM (former and going to go back to be a teacher) to a 3 yo DS and a 16 mo (today ) DD. I have been married to a wonderful man for almost 6 years. I started CDing DS when DS was 10mo. I started with prefolds and then moved to pockets and AIOs. I started CDing DD when she came home from the hospital. We primarily use pockets, AIOs, and fitted/wool. I have used PUL covers but not in a long time and I do have one prefold I still use as well as one grae that I use. I have pretty much used everything and have tried many brands but know that different babies wear different diapers differently.

I can handle a few newbies. PM me if you are looking for a Big Sis!

ETA: I live in VA if a location is needed.

I am a Big sis to a few CDing mamas

I think that's a great idea. I'd want to make sure that anyone helping noobs isn't still lost on DS themselves.

yeah, but to protect a newbie from a scammer "here i'll adopt you, if you wanna buy some cds send me money and i'll help you" i mean you never know.

also there are members that are not active. that would ensure that a newbie has availability to her big sister. someone that's witty on knowing prices on fsot. it doesn't have to be 500/3mos, it can be tweaked, just saying there should be a system.

ETA: it would also be helpful if newbies and sisters were matched geographically. lol

i kinda agree that time is not always relative to your knowlegde. i CD'd my first baby with prefolds and scraps and dappi covers, for the first year of his diapering time, I had no idea about other options till i found amitys world and them diaper pin and then DS. so that was 2 years that i didnt really kow much. but nowadays most mamas find out about option early on. I dont thin its necessary to set a rule per se about who can be a big sister but it would be nice to see big sisters who have already been around a bit and only volunteer if they feel they can help somebody out.
