Tell me a little about your family.

My partner, Nathan, is my rock and favorite cuddle bunny. I’m pretty sure my kids are the coolest ever, and I love spending time with them. They’re smart and interesting and funny and genuinely kind.

What advice do you wish someone had given you as a new mom? What advice would you give to a new mom?

You don’t need to be a perfect mom. Relax.

All those people telling you how to raise your child don’t actually have a say. That’s why it’s called mother’s instinct and not nosy in-law’s instinct or bossy neighbor’s instinct.

What have been your favorite moments of motherhood?

I love watching my kids together. I love watching them play with and nurture each other. The way they love one another helps me remember I did some things right as a mom.

What has been your most challenging moments of motherhood?

This business of 2 under 2 is pretty wild. It’s really hard to get a moment of peace to think or clean or spend time with my man. I’m looking forward to being bored again someday.

This is one of the things that’s awesome about the diaper service. I feel like it makes it a little easier for moms to use cloth, and that benefits them, their babies, and all the rest of us by keeping disposables out of the landfill.

What inspired you to start your business?

I was living in Asheville and pregnant with my 3rd child. I had already decided to use a diaper service this time. I cloth diapered my older 2 kids and just wanted it to be a little easier.

When I moved back to Spartanburg, I was horrified to find out there was no service for me! So I started a Spartanburg SC cloth diaper service, which is a little crazy since I now wash for a lot more than just my two.

What services & products do your provide for new moms?

Spartanburg SC Cloth Diaper Service

We provide old fashioned diaper service with modern cloth diapers. We use 100% organic, Unbleached cotton prefolds.

I also sell Thirsties and Sweet Peas covers, diaper liners, pail liners, and a cool pail deodorizer called Fairy Dust.

What are some things that you offer that make the transition to cloth diapering a little easier?

I sit with each of my clients before their due date for at least an hour explaining how cloth works. I try to provide helpful info, as well. Most importantly, I pick up and drop off at their door. They only have to put the dirties on the porch. It’s one less thing to do!

Special Discount for Quiet Graces Fans!

I cloth diapered all three of my kids (including my twins!) and let me tell you, wash day can sneak up on you and have your reaching for the disposables!  A cloth diaper service would have made this a bit easier.  And I love that Kristin’s pre-folds are organic!
