How long have you been carrying Tiny Tush Products? 2 years
What is your best selling Tiny Tush product? That is a toss up between the bio liners and the pocket diaper
What is your personal favorite Tiny Tush product? I love the Tiny Tush pocket diaper!! It is a great diaper for a great price!
Why did you decide to open your business? When my daughter was young, I had two pediatricians tell me she had eczema in the diaper area. I was supposed to give her benadryl when she was itchy (which is basically all day long) and put steroid cream on her. It was sad when I found out it was not eczema but due to the chemicals in the disposable diapers! As soon as I switched to cloth, it went away in a matter of days! It was sad that the pediatricians did not suggest cloth diapering! When I decided to start cloth diapering my daughter, I had to do a lot of research ONLINE! It was so difficult to see how the diapers were made and how they would fit. I decided I had to open Sugar Dipes to help the local community with cloth diapering. There was not one cloth diaper store remotely close to me!
Why do you love cloth diapers? I love how it is so much better for baby and the environment! Not to mention they are adorable!
Do you have a cloth diapering routine you can share? When my daughter was in cloth, I would wash every other day.
Do you have a cloth diaper story you want to share – perhaps you or someone you know who has found that cloth diapering has improved their life in some way? My mom was very skeptical about me using cloth diapers. She did the “old-fashioned” way with my sister and hated it. When I showed her what modern cloth diapers were like she was amazed. She couldn’t believe why more people do not use cloth! They are just as easy as disposables plus you aren’t throwing anything away!
What would you like the world to know about you? I am very passionate about cloth diapers. If you would have asked me 5 years ago anything about cloth diapers, I would have said not me! I never would have imagined my love for cloth diapering has led me to opening my own store! I am married to my best friend for over 6 years and we have a 4 year old daughter and a son on the way! I am super excited to cloth diaper my son!
