Oh yes, it’s as weird as you might imagine. I vlogged about a menstruation cup.
It’s a poorly lit video because the only time of day I can find to do this is when everyone else is sleeping. It’s also the only time of day I can be sure my 3 year old won’t ask me what it is, try to take it and turn it into a snack trap.
Sure, I could have just written about it, but then you wouldn’t get the full effect. I wanted you to feel what it’s like to be one of my girlfriends, face to face, as I talk about the cup I shove into my vagina in the middle of my period. Really, you should feel special.
Do not be afraid. I didn’t actually demonstrate anything.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who abuses the term, “I am serious.”
A lot of my friends and readers frequently ask me, “What’s the difference between the types of cloth diapers?” I do my best to explain it to them over the phone or over email, but it’s one of those things that’s a lot easier to understand when you have a good look at them. That’s why I love to invite friends over and actually show them, demonstrate for them the difference between the various kinds of diapers.
I can’t have you all over (pity! it would be one hell of a party), but I can invite you into my house via video. So that’s what I’ve done. I put together a Vlog yesterday (after many technical difficulties, I’m still learning this fancy new camera, so please excuse the shifting focus). I did my best to keep it as short as possible, but there is a lot to share! I’ll walk you through everything from a prefold all the way up to an all-in-one with just about everything in between. A big thanks again to Rhea from SunshineDiapers.com for hooking me up with one of her Test Drive Sets to show you some types I didn’t have in my stash.
I hope this helps demystify cloth diapers for some of you, and at least gets you thinking about what may be the best option(s) for your family.
Please, please feel free to hit me up in the comments section below with any questions you have, or chime in if you think I missed something. I’ll do my best to answer everyone or find someone who can.
Also, I’ve got a couple giveaways to go with this! FuzziBunz is giving away one one-size diaper and a wetbag to one lucky winner and Artsty Fartsy Foo Foo is giving away a set of 6 hemp doublers!
I’m going to leave the comment section here open for discussion about cloth diapers, so GO HERE to enter.
