About Hineytales®

I am a working mother of two children. Four days a week I come home from one job and jump straight into another. To say that my life can get crazy is an understatement! Despite the everyday chaos of raising 2 kids under 3 years old and working 4 days a week, my husband and I are devoted to using the most natural products we can find. Does that mean we ONLY use cloth diapers? No. Does that mean we make all our food from scratch? Absolutely not. Like most families where both parents work, we have to cut corners here and there because, if we didn’t, we would never get any time to just play with our kids. However, my husband and I have found that cloth diapering doesn’t have to be reserved for the stay-at-home-mom who “has the time” to do more laundry. Modern cloth diapering is extremely easy to do and clean! We both have full-time jobs and have managed to save thousands of dollars cloth diapering. My inspiration for starting HineyTales is to teach parents who work outside of the home that you can do it too.

My husband and I decided to start cloth diapering primarily for the cost savings. They were also an attractive option because they are chemical-free, eco-friendly, and the designs are adorable! At first I was very intimidated by all the options, the new vocabulary, and the array of accessories to choose from. Many websites are available to buy cloth diapers, yet none of them did a good job at explaining how to use them! Eventually, I had to take a trip to a local store and spend several hours talking to a sales associate for me to feel like I understood how they worked. Many people I stalk to have so many misunderstandings about cloth diapering and how it works – HineyTales is here to teach you how easy it can be!

With HineyTales, my main goal is to help educate my customers because most moms and moms-to-be just don’t have the time to spend hours on the internet or in a store figuring out the world of cloth diapers. That is why I have made instructional videos to help display the key features of each diaper and what their pros/cons are. If you live in the St. Louis Area I am more than happy to come to your house for a personal Cloth Diaper Consultation as well. Once you understand how everything works it is so much easier to buy your chosen diaper(s) with confidence. I have purposefully narrowed the selection of diapers that I offer on my website to those brands that have the highest recommendations. I do not want my customers to feel daunted by a massive selection of brands! I’m only selling the merchandise I have used on my own children and know to be reliable and cost-effective.

If you feel that anything is unclear after viewing the Videos, please do not hesitate to contact me at hineytales@gmail.com and I would love to help. Thank you for choosing HineyTales!
