New Faces around Fluff Envy

Sara and Baby A
Welcome to the newly revived Fluff Envy blog! You’re used to hearing from Justine, our fearless leader, but with help from my adorable sidekick, Baby A, I’m co-opting this space to talk about our adventures with cloth diapering, breastfeeding, baby wearing, and all things natural parenting. And, along the way we’ll be sharing some of our favorite products from Fluff Envy.
I’m a new mom to my eight-month-old baby boy. We started cloth diapering because I’m allergic to aloe (weird, I know!) and almost all disposable diapers on the marketing have aloe added to them in an attempt to cancel out all the irritating chemicals. I’m grateful for my bizzaro allergy because I love cloth diapering! I’m also an enthusiastic babywearer and breastfeeder. My little guy is the result of a long journey with infertility and extensive medical intervention. I feel like natural parenting helps me regain some of the sense of self-determination and peace I lost to infertility.

In addition to me (I’m Sara, by the way) there are some other new faces around the store. I’m pleased to introduce Amanda and Tiffany—loyal customers, now officially part of Team Fluff Envy!

Amanda and kids
Amanda is mom to two little boys and a toddler girl. She started baby wearing with her youngest son and cloth diapering with her baby girl. She enjoys an extended breastfeeding relationship with her youngest. Amanda loves spending time with her kids and getting to know their evolving 

Tiffany and family
Tiffany is also mom to three little ones, a little girl, a toddler boy and a baby boy. She embraces co-sleeping, baby-led weaning, baby wearing, breast feeding and cloth diapering. Tiffany’s interest in natural parenting extends to an overall interest in alternative medicine and work with a local chiropractic office. Her kids are her world and everything she does is to improve their lives.

Justine and Sara's Baby A
And, as always, Justine is leading the way. She is mom to three busy little girls and natural parenting mentor to all of her customers. Justine has built Fluff Envy into something that’s about so much more than just cloth diapers (though we’ll always love the fluff!). The store offers a wide variety of natural parenting products beginning with all kinds of gear for expecting mothers and extending all the way through toys and accessories for bigger kids. Fluff Envy has become a gathering place for those interested in natural parenting, hosting cloth diapering classes, Babywearing International and Attachment Parenting International meetings, breastfeeding support groups and more.

If you’re in the Chicagoland area, please stop by and say hello! If you’re further away, I hope you’ll consider this virtual space an extension of our brick and mortar store. Our commitment to natural parenting and community remains the same. So, ask questions, share your experiences, send us fluffy OTB pictures and just generally make yourself at home. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, so jump right in!
