It all started with a sleepness night and an idea…
Hi, I’m Kim Rosas and I’m the voice, writer, photographer, and videographer behind Dirty Diaper Laundry. I have two boys who inspire my website; even though they are both out of diapers now I’m as passionate about helping families on their journey now as I was when they were. My husband, two boys, and I all live in Florida.
I decided to start Dirty Diaper Laundry after my first son, Fletcher, was 3 months old (2009). We began using cloth diapers from the get-go. I did a lot of research while I was pregnant but the fact that I couldn’t see and touch the diapers in person was frustrating. There are only so many reviews you can read! When Gro Baby (now GroVia) was coming out with their new All-in-Two I wanted to see it! And I knew a ton of others would too. That is when I came up with the idea to film a video on it. That night I laid in bed thinking of all of the possibilities of starting my own cloth diaper blog. The next day I bought my domain, chose a host and blogging platform, and began my adventure. To date I have filmed over 200 reviews!
So why the name “Dirty Diaper Laundry” anyways?
When I was trying to think of something catchy I wanted the name to fit my life, not just diapers. At that time I felt that my life was an endless cycle of dirty diaper laundry. These days there is still a lot of laundry but it’s the sweaty, smelly kind from my growing boys and not the smelly cute kind from dirty diapers.
Babies aren’t babies forever and as my kids have grown my focus has shifted but my passion and advocacy for cloth diapering hasn’t. I’m still heavily involved in the cloth diaper industry with this website. I’ve also taken on added roles through my work as the Executive Director of Giving Diapers, Giving Hope and the educator at MommyCon locations in the Dirty Diaper Laundry Cloth Diaper Resource Center. I’ve added freelance work in the industry and consult on product designs and marketing matters for brands/stores.
Doing it again
My passion for all things reusable has translated into a new website similar to Dirty Diaper Laundry in it’s goal but in a whole new category. Put A Cup In It is doing for reusable menstrual products what DDL has done for cloth diapers. I’d love to see you over there.
I am very honored to be considered a leading cloth diaper blogger and respected advocate.
