I believed the pad would come in white color which I wanted so I was disappointed to see it's backed with pinkish layer. I love Mamabear Lady Wear series as they are the most efficient cloth pads not only as inexpensive as others. So I'm sure this one would work the same though.

This is my first sling and I love it, the colors go well together. Amy includes instructions on how to use as well as contact information should you have questions or concerns. Amy was able to make it very quick and I received it a day earlier than scheduled. Amy responded to my questions in a short time frame as well. I have had the chance to wear it once and my baby fell asleep shortly after being in it!

Updates

A brand new creation! One size wool longies, reversible AND with an adorable Fox appliqué!
The last of the flannels from storage: all that I have left, it must last until late November when I place my annual order. I buy all of my flannel at once to keep prices low for my customers! Last year I bought over 3500 yards, this year will be 5,000!
A unique design twist on regular fitted diapers - my hybrids fold out like a flat to wash and dry quickly and completely while going on as easily as a regular fitted. In the best news? They are one-size-fits-all.:)

About

From the humblest of beginnings...

I just KNEW that I wanted to cloth diaper and wear my children, way back in 2004 when my children were just a gleam in my (and my husband's) newly-returned-from-Iraq eyes.

My mom bought me my first cloth diapers as a shower gift, their high cost though meant that I would be doing laundry twice a day just to avoid disposables. My grandmother had taught me how to sew in grade school and I thought "I can totally make these".

My first diapers were made from tea towels bought at the local dollar store. As I gained confidence as a mother, a cloth-diaperer, and a seamstress my diapers improved, and I started buying up better materials. I got involved with donating cloth diapers, and making them for friends, than friends of friends, and finally someone said "Hey, you should sell these on eBay!" Suddenly I was officially "in business", all while completing my graduate work in counseling and raising my daughter.

Then a fellow diaper-seamstress introduced me to Etsy in late 2008. I lurked.... and lurked... I was about to finish my graduate program and start my "real" job as a counselor, did I really want to take on another online storefront??

The simple structure and ease of getting started finally lured me in; I'd give it a try. I spent forever getting my shop set up ("I'm not tech-savvy" is an understatement), finally put up my first listing, and then couldn't find it, ANYWHERE. Frustrated, tired, holding a sleeping toddler, I was about to surrender when I realized that my item had sold - in approximately 10 SECONDS! The hook was set!

As my shop has continued to grow on Etsy I have fallen in love with the community, the structure, the chance for a creative outlet, and most importantly the opportunity to stay home with my children.

In spring 2011 this became more important than ever when my husband was killed in a car accident. Suddenly I was doing it all alone, and my Etsy shop provided me with an opportunity to remain home with my children and still make ends meet.

I scaled my private practice down and have supplemented my income with my Etsy shop sales. Though I sometimes find myself wondering, in the wee hours of the morning as I sit hunched over my sewing table listening to the soft hiss of the baby monitor between the now-so-familiar clacking of my sewing machine, if I'm crazy. Yet I LOVE what I do - and the opportunities it provides for my children and I - and I hope you do to.
