Real Dad Talk: Every Good Parent
May 19, 2016 7:38 pm | by

Editor’s Note: This post was shared by Travis Fleming, a Cotton Babies dad. Travis shared this on the Cotton Babies Cloth Diaper Flash Mob Facebook group and we thought it was a good reminder to share with everyone. I kept getting this overwhelming feeling at the gym that I should encourage parents today. I feel in today’s society social media influences us greatly. It’s such a cool tool to use however, we take picture frame shots of our life and hardly anyone sees the struggle between those shots. My little girl Harper Rae is coming up on 8 months old

Share the Love: Helping More Families in Need
December 30, 2014 7:20 pm | by

Editor’s Note: This content was kindly (and voluntarily) shared with us by a Share the Love recipient. When I applied for a cloth diaper loan through Share the Love, I was 43 years old and 30 weeks pregnant with my fourth child, who had just been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. I am a housewife/stay-at-home mother who also cares for my husband’s 86-year-old grandmother that lives with us. My husband had been unemployed for four months, having worked part-time before then, and just received a 4-month trucking job. Needless to say, we have truly been struggling financially since fall 2013, but by scaling

Sharing Love in All 50 States
November 15, 2014 11:53 am | by

2014 has flown by, and people are already beginning to plan and set goals for the new year. As we wrap up the last few months of 2014, Share the Love is also creating new goals, but there’s one we really want to accomplish before 2015: expand our program to all 50 states! Doing so would allow this program to start a new year on the right foot while also helping more families in need. Since it was launched in 2012, Share the Love has grown tremendously, but there are still opportunities to open a host site in many communities.We need your

Sharing More Love
November 2, 2014 9:49 am | by

Share the Love has hosts throughout the U.S. that are working hard and volunteering to help families who are struggling to diaper their babies.  For years, many families have wondered how they are going to afford disposables and resorted to reusing dirty diapers when their options ran out. With no government-sponsored programs that assist with diapers, something as simple as covering their baby’s bottom has become a huge stress and burden. Currently there are 112 Share the Love host sites in 43 states and Puerto Rico and this program is always expanding to help more families in need. If you have extra

Cloth Diapers: A Dad’s Perspective
January 24, 2014 4:55 pm | by

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story is a guest post, written by Zachary Leibel, a cloth supporter,  teacher of reusable diapers, and dad to two boys. When my wife and I found out we were pregnant with our first child, we were naturally very excited, but also knew we’d have to make some decisions.  One of the decisions we made was that we were determined to go from a two person income down to just my income so that my wife could stay at home with the baby.  Some people thought we were crazy for even considering this in today’s world and said things

Moms Helping Other Moms
January 24, 2014 4:26 pm | by

A few days ago several of my friends posted a slideshow of moms supporting other moms on Facebook. The point of the slideshow, at least what I got out of it, was that we should all support each other regardless of the differences in our parenting choices and experiences. What really struck me is that, in my role as Share the Love Program Coordinator, I see this every day. We have an amazing network of moms who, without judgement, just want to help other moms. Out of kindness and love, Share the Love hosts from all over the country with a

Help Us Share the Love
September 12, 2013 5:19 pm | by

When I switched to cloth diapers from disposables there was a lot I didn’t know.  One thing that didn’t even cross my mind was that cloth diapers not only have a life beyond one diaper change, they may even have a life beyond one child.  A friend of mine mentioned using the same set of diapers on both her first and second children.  Even more awesome is that the next go-around for your cloth diapers could be sharing the love with who may not have otherwise been able to afford diapers at all. As a Mom, especially in those early days,
