Going-Green-101

Switching over to reusable is a great way to start going green. Disposable products, including diapers, are piling up in landfills. It only makes sense to use cloth diapers. They are better for your baby, the environment and your wallet!

Not What Your Grandma Used

Cloth diapers don’t consist of pins and plastic pants like they did many years ago. The modern cloth diaper is easy to use, easy to wash and very cute. There are many different styles and sizes to choose from so you can get the best fit for your baby and your family.

Are cloth diapers hard to use?

I don’t think so. I see it as part of caring for a baby. You wouldn’t NOT feed your baby because it’s hard and messy, would you? Cloth diapers can take a bit to get the hang of but once you create a habit out of it, they become second nature. Many failed cloth diaper attempts are from bad wash routines and poor fitting diapers. You may need to try several different diapers and detergent before you find what works for you. Just remember that in the end your baby and the earth will be exposed to less toxins.

Are you a cloth diaper newbie?

There is a lot to know about cloth diapers and the information overload can be a bit much, especially if you’re dealing with pregnancy hormones. That’s why I created this series. It will cover all the basics for beginners. I consider myself a bit of a Cloth Diaper Guru… 🙂 Please email me if you have any questions!
