A Life Sustained Sponsor: Rumpkinz by Jeanette

Please welcome A Life Sustained sponsor: Rumpkinz by Jeanette

Jeanette is a work-at-home mama who makes minky diapers with hidden PUL, organic bamboo cotton fleece inner linings and organic hemp or organic bamboo inserts as well as hand-sewn wool diaper covers, which she sells in her Etsy Shop.



Tell us how about the beginning of your business...

I started cloth diapering my son in March. I bought way too many diapers, so I swapped some on Facebook and met a lot of mommas there. I then decided to make and sell hemp inserts because I found it very absorbent for nap and night time diapering. I got a lot of encouragement from family and friends to start making and selling cloth diapers. I fell in love with minky fabrics and I love organic fabrics as well, so that's what I decided to use in my diapers.




My business is new, barely two weeks old, and I am happy with the way things are going. I'm taking one day at a time and love being able to spend quality time with my 3-year-old daughter Clarice Lynette and my 3-month-old son Jakob Sean.


We live in the countryside and love spending time outdoors. I regret using 'sposies with my firstborn (living in Chicago in an apartment will not work for cloth diapering!). We moved to Wisconsin a couple of years ago and I am still adjusting to country living, since I grew up in the city.






What inspires you?

My family inspires me--my parents and siblings. I miss them a lot since they are thousands of miles away in the Philippines, but we regularly communicate on Skype. We plan to visit them next year.

My husband and kids inspire me. They are my number one priority in life, next to my spiritual life. Put God first and He will tremendously bless you. My 3-year-old daughter and 3-month-old son are the loves of my life. They inspire me to be a better mom. Some days are chaotic, some days are not. I love the way they give unconditional love to their dad and me.

 Other moms that I meet on FB inspire me. They touch my heart like no other can. Their stories, trials, and blessings inspire me to be a better mom, wife, daughter and friend.


 Jeanette is generously giving-away  one minky diaper with 2 inserts! She is excited for other moms to have the opportunity to try this great diaper for their little ones. Check out the different patterns she has available in her Etsy shop.

  23. I actually just bought a diaper from her!! BUT, it's not for my daughter. It's for a friend at church who is planning on cloth diapering. I'd love to get one for my daughter though!! She does have CUTE diapers (and affordable).
