Changing Diapers Book Review!

Changing Diapers

I was so excited when I received my copy of Changing Diapers by Kelly Wels!! This book is absolutely amazing, I wish I would have been able to read it before I started cloth diapering. There are so many helpful tips, information, etc. I LOVE that the book is 6.5 X 6.5 and paperback, fits PERFECTLY in all three of my different sized diaper bags, for an easy read on the go. Changing Diapers is 248 pages of full color.

A bit about the author herself!
Changing Diapers was written by Kelly Wels, a cloth diaper expert and advocate! In November, 2010  Kelly founded, which she calls her "passion project". Kelly was previously known by her peers as the founder and owner of and, which are two popular online cloth diapering stores. In the summer of 2010, Kelly decided to turn her business over to new owners and pursue her advocacy passion full-time, with out the constant pressure of running a multi-million dollar business.

My review!!
EVERYONE should read this book... whether you are interested in cloth diapering, unsure about it or already doing so! I am still fairly new to cloth diapering, I started in February 2012. I thought I knew quite a bit about cloth diapering until reading this book and realized... I really didn't know much!! I have learned so much about the different types and styles of diapers, different terminology in the cloth diapering world, how to use other diapers that I have been wondering about, etc! We are going on vacation towards the end of June and I have been so nervous about traveling with two boys in diapers and how I was going to handle being somewhere out of the norm. How many diapers do I take with? Do I take them all? There is a chapter in the book that covers Traveling with Cloth Diapers, what a HUGE help this has been and it answered all of my questions about traveling while cloth diapering!!

Did you know there are actually LAWS about cloth diapering in a child care facility?! I had NO CLUE until I read Changing Diapers!! I was always wondering why on mommy boards there were moms discussing how their child's daycare refused to use cloth diapers. Does your state have a law against the use of cloth diapers in the day cares? 

This book informs you on how to wash your cloth diapers and even wool! It helps you know what you will all need to start cloth diapering, how many diapers per child, etc, etc.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to ANY and ALL parents who are interested in and/or already cloth diapering.  Yes, parents! Not just mommy, but daddy can also read this book and maybe if daddy reads the book as well, he will feel more confident on partaking in the physical changing of the diapers. 

Please take a moment to check out If you are interested in purchasing this book, which is on sale for $11.98 OR a 2pk (would be a great gift for a new expecting mother) for $21.96, you may click on the button in the upper left hand corner of Mami's 3 Little Monkeys blog under "Affiliates"!
