Re: If I had never found diaper swappers......

I would not have branched out beyond prefolds and covers

I would not have started a business!

Re: If I had never found diaper swappers......

I would have never ever ever considered trying mama cloth!

I would not have tried being a WAHM.

I would probably get more done around the house

Exactly. I'd still be using prefolds and covers or wool.

I'd also probably still be having laundry problems because I was using Ecos.

I wouldn't have made many wonderful friends either

Re: If I had never found diaper swappers......

I would still be using gDiapers and hating them!

I would have never found mama cloth.

Moreso I would have never heard of ERF, BFing beyond a year, cosleeping being ok, babywearing with somethine besides a Baby Bjorn, intactivism...there are so many things that I am forever indebted to this site for.

Re: If I had never found diaper swappers......

I would probably have stuck with using a couple dozen BG pockets stuffed with flats and replaced them as necessary. I would never have gone through the rabbit hole into fancy diapers, woolies and developed an insane yarn hoarding habit. I never would have started a WAHM diaper sewing business (this was back in 2008). I would have missed a lot of really great fun and missed a lot of learning experiences, but saved myself a bunch of money probably LOL.

I am no longer a diaper seamstress, a longies knitter, a yarn/fabric hoarder and own only 2 dozen diapers for my youngest (Flips this time, but yes a BG product)...but that crazy ride was part of my learning experience. I am at a place of being happy with my choices that led me to simplicity and while I took a long break from DS for awhile I do really enjoy the community

Re: If I had never found diaper swappers......

If I had never found diaperswappers I would never have tried knit woolies, fitteds, or family cloth. I would likely have limited our woolies and diapers to only soakers and flats and prefolds. I forgot I would likely have foward faced my son at 12 months. He is now 19 almost 20 months.

We would have had an all os aio stash and been happy with it, my sons wardrobe wouldn't have cost 6 bazillion times more than mine...
But I would have never learned to knit and I wouldn't get to beam with pride when someone asks my son who made his pants and says "Mommy!"

Re: If I had never found diaper swappers......

I would have never made it cloth diapering for the last 5 years

Would have never known the awesomeness of longies

And would not feel the way I do about handmade.
