Postpartum Depression Almost Made Me Quit Cloth Diapering

Cloth Diapering with Postpartum Depression blog title - this blog is about how PPD almost made me quit cloth diapering

The Hardest Part

For me, the hardest part was the guilt.

There are so many feelings of guilt around Postpartum Depression.

Bringing a new baby into this world is supposed to be a blessed time full of happiness. So, when you feel anything but blessed and happy, guilt is often inevitable.

I didn’t deal with postpartum depression with my first, at all. With my second I only had a mild case of baby blues the first couple of weeks. So, when I was struggling with severe depression after the birth of my third baby, the guilt over feeling less joy for him ate at me.

Was Lil Helper Scammed Again? Or is it a Mistake?

Was lil helper scammed again? Or is this a mistake on the customers part?

We think this was a mistake on the customer’s part, but what do you think? Was Lil Helper scammed again? Watch this video and decide for yourself:

Can’t watch? Here’s what happened:

Around Christmas time 2016, a customer contacted us requesting to return 2 Lil Helper day packs. We agreed to accept the return, refunded their money and asked the customer to send the product back to us. Some of you will be reading this saying “WHAT?! You gave them their money back BEFORE you got the product returned?” Well, yes, dear reader. In our experience, everyone who requests a return will send us the product back. If we are being honest, at the risk of sounding braggy, we don’t get that many returns. However, customers always send the product back.

In this case, we received a package from this customer… containing 2 brand new stroller blankets. Not the $300 worth of Lil Helper diapers we were expecting.

So… was Lil Helper scammed?

Naaaah…. at least, we hope not! We are choosing to believe that this was a mistake on the customers part. Maybe they were returning these stroller blankets to another retailer and got the shipping labels mixed up. Who knows. It doesn’t matter, anyways. What do you do when life gives you lemons? Thank them because lemons are really expensive when they’re out of season. Or… you could make lemonade.
