Losing a loved one can be devastating, grief is so much harder when you have to be the one to play the strong part. You have to keep denying what you feel simply because you have to. Bebeboo was a project born out of severely turbulent emotions. Emotions that were then unidentified, self-denied, and often swept under the rug. Bebeboo helped a mama cope with these emotions.
Out of all the possible projects why did I choose cloth diapers? My cloth diaper journey is weird. Our firstborn was cloth diapered because my wonderful mom used it. Back then I liked the idea of cloth diapers as a money-saving option, but I found it gross and inconvenient. Thus we only used it part-time. That was the young me who didn’t know better. When we were pregnant with our second child we were hit with tough financial times which lead me to research on money-saving options and stumbled on cloth diapers again. Our then situation and the lack of proper guidance pose several challenges to cloth diaper full time. As soon as we found out we were expecting our third child I knew right away we will use cloth diapers. We used cloth, not for financial reasons but because I know it is better for our baby and for our family overall, all other benefits are just icing on the cake. We have successfully cloth diapered our third baby full-time at home and at daycare.
I have learned so much from both journeys – starting Bebeboo and having our third child in cloth diapers full-time. I also met so many wonderful people in person and online, many of which I am privileged to call friends.
When I started the research for Bebeboo it was just to serve as a distraction from my emotions. This distraction eventually turned into a hobby. This hobby then turned into a passion. Bebeboo has allowed me to help others, educate people about cloth diapers, and most specially Bebeboo has given me a platform to share about other issues and topics I care for. This and more was enough reason for me to continue this endeavor despite challenges.
Thank you for supporting a small business.
Thank you for supporting a dream.
And thank you for considering cloth diapers.
