WAHM Day 8 – Nifty Nappy

Welcome to day 8 of our 10 day long spotlight on all our great WAHM’s. Here at Top to Bottom Baby Boutique we pride ourselves on working with WAHM’s and helping them to spread the love for their products. What better way to spread the love than to give something away! We’re also going to have a 5% discount on each of our WAHM products through October 10th. (no code necessary)
Meet our Eighth WAHM run business:
image_thumb[7]  
The Mom behind it all: Vilate Thacker
Tell us about yourself: “I got my first introduction to cloth diapers when I was like 7 or 8 and had to change my little brothers diapers.  They were prefolds with pins and plastic covers.  When we got disposables I was so excited and swore to NEVER use cloth diapers!  But when we were first married and in college.  With one baby and another on the way we needed to save some money.  I found a pattern for a fitted diaper so I made it up with diaper flannel and velcro.... and yes nasty plastic pants! 
When I found pocket diapers I thought they were the best thing in the world, and I knew I could make them.  I bought some fabrics and an industrial snap press and when tophotoofme_thumb work.  I used these for a couple more of my kids.  I learned a lot from those first diapers.  In my desire to find more information I discovered wool covers, and fell in love.  Then with the freedom of Wool covers I found Hemp and Bamboo.  I started on a new design of cloth diaper.  I took the time to learn the qualities of these new natural fabrics so I could know how best to use them.  Now I could have an amazing absorbent fitted cloth diaper and a natural breathable cover.  I was overjoyed!  My new cloth diapers I made worked great! I couldn’t believe how good they were.
After all this work and effort I decided to make up some cloth diapers and try to sell them. They worked great for my last four kids maybe other people would want a nice diaper too. I started selling my cloth diapers on etsy and eventually I was getting enough business I felt I could justify a website.  I played around with a name and decided on Nifty Nappy Cloth Diapers, because these diapers are just so “nifty”.  It has just grown from there.  I now have active Nifty Nappy retailers and I am adding more all the time.
So you ask, “What do I like most about what I do?”.  I love the interaction I have with other mothers.  I love that I can help them determine what is best for their families and live a greener lifestyle.  "Why do I do it?"  I LOVE it!  I love my job!  It is so fun to be able to love what you do.  It has been so fun watching my business grow.  I love working with my retailers.  The cloth diapering community is amazing and they are all so supportive of one another.  In the end though, I think I want to sell my diapers because I think they are:  Absorbent, Breathable, very CUTE!  The ABC’s of Cloth Diapering.
Other Products you make:

Peachy Keen Pocket Diapers, Bitty Bums Newborn Diapers

I have not actually tried wool with my diapers yet! I got a couple of Imse Vimse wraps a few months back and then chickened out and resold them!

So I guess right now my favorite wool products are my dryer balls hahaha

My favorite is definitely the woolie wrap by Nifty Nappy. My MonkeySnuugles purple ooga booga longies are a close second though.

I haven't tried anything wool, but I love the cute longies pictured here and the other ones I've seen at TTBBB.
