Cloth Parent Q&A - Alexa Barnard

Welcome back to our Cloth Parent Q&A series. We will be featuring "regular" (for lack of better word!) cloth moms & dads to share their cloth journeys with us and tell us a little bit about themselves.

Alexa Barnard has been using cloth for quite some time and believes that measuring your child's output is key to having a leak free experience with cloth.

Q: Why did you decide to use cloth nappies?

A: It is cost effective and so much less waste

Q: What was the most surprising thing about using cloth nappies?

A: That I would love it so much

Q: What is the most challenging thing about cloth nappies for you? And how did/do you overcome it?

A: Getting absorbency right. By trial and error

Q: Your advice to anyone just starting out or considering cloth nappies:
