Re: Expatriate Mama check in

After 9 years in the Eastern part of Germany near Poland, I'm off to Hamburg in July. Any other moms in Hamburg?

Re: Expatriate Mama check in

Were down in the south by the Swiss and french borders. Moved down here 2 years ago or so. DH has unbefristet in offenlicherdienst here, so I think we are pretty much fixed here, much as I would love to move back to East Germany.

I do know one mom in Hamburg, a German who worked in the US, she cloth diapers but is not on diaperswappers.

Hi, I'm finishing up a year in southern China, and we'll be here at least another year. We're expecting our first baby in September, and I'm looking forward to using cloth diapers!

Re: Expatriate Mama check in

Hi Ladies! I'm in the southern Netherlands, right on the German border. Been here since March, 2010 (DH is a Dutchie), lived in Wolfsburg, Germany for 11 years before that and am originally from Michigan.

Due for our first baby July 9, will be delivering in Moenchengladbach, Germany and will be happily using CDs. I'm back in MI a lot throughout the year and just had 2 baby showers the end of April, so all of my CDs are from the States (GMD prefolds & a few workhorse fitteds, Blueberry capri, Assunta & Thirsties covers), with the exception of my Assunta covers. Very excited for baby to come and my stash is all set for the first stage (I hope)! Going back to MI in Aug. through October, so I'll see then what more I might need.

Best wishes to everyone!
