Sharni of Nappy Shoppe

Hi, My name is Sharni. I am the owner of Nappy Shoppe. I started Nappy Shoppe in 2008 after I started cloth diapering my youngest. I started with making G-Flappers, which I made for gDiapers when I couldn't find an insert that worked for me. I soon found others were looking for inserts, so as a web designer it didn't take much for me to set up a web site and get started.

Then I started trying out other kinds of cloth diapers, and decided to try my hand at selling the ones I liked the best. What I expected to be something that would occupy me just a few hours a week turned into a full time job that I love. I now employ my daughter and a couple of my friends part time. It feels good to contribute to the local economy and better the environment at the same time.

I am an Australian who lives in Texas. I met my Texan husband on line back in 1995. I have a daughter who is 22, and three sons, 13, 7 and 2. Yes that is 20 years between first and last! I cloth diapered my first child, and back then it was flats and pins and plastic pants. I had a huge wet pail in my laundry room, and line dried my diapers as I didn't own a dryer. Sad to say I used disposables on my second and third. My third was always sporting a nasty diaper rash and if I had known about dry pails back then, I would have changed to cloth!

I am so glad I discovered cloth this time around. I always hated the way I contributed to the environmental mess with my older two boys. I feel like I am doing better by the world my kids are growing up in this time around by using cloth diapers.

I love my job as I get to meet other mums! I have met quite a few local mums and enjoyed making new friends. And I have a great online community of cloth diapering mums too.

I am happy to answer any cloth diapering questions anyone might have. Just contact me through the website :)
