As a cloth diaper company, we strive to reduce waste at our office and limit our environmental impact. After a Costco run, it seemed ridiculous how many paper towels we bought. Did we really need them? Our founder, Jenn, mentioned that they rarely use paper towels at home. There’s a drawer in her family’s kitchen with cut up t-shirts that are used in place of paper napkins and paper towels. So, we asked our staff if they had any t-shirts they wanted to Marie Kondo. Rather than taking them to a thrift store, we asked them to bring them to
The Multi-Tool of Parenting If I were to choose one must-have baby item, I think I would choose a swaddle blanket. I’m still loving swaddle blankets. They are like the swiss army knife of parenting tools- and my youngest child just turned 11. There is something about that beautiful woven fabric. Stella, my youngest, loved to be swaddled – constantly. I used to jest that it was because of the egg rolls and burritos I craved while I was pregnant. My current obsession is our Genius series Swaddle Blankets. These are MY colors. I can never quite decide which one

One of the unique benefits of working at Cotton Babies is that we welcome babies at work. You’ve all seen the blog from the lovely Julia about bringing her son, Tommy, to work with her at the corporate offices for Cotton Babies.

I was lucky enough to be able to quit my full-time job to work part-time, and, added bonus, bring my little one to work with me!
We have exciting news! As many of you know we released Elemental Joy in the Fall of 2017. We know that diapers are expensive. Many families struggle to feed their family and buy diapers. If a family wants to use cloth diapers, cost shouldn’t be an obstacle. Our heart is to make cloth diapers accessible to as many people as possible. We know little changes make a big difference. Walmart Open Call This week Jenn attended some meetings at Walmart’s 5th Annual Open Call at their headquarters in Bentonville, AR. Earlier today, we were informed that we are one step closer
