10 Reasons I Love Cloth Diapering With Prefolds
May 28, 2022 6:04 am | by
Real Mom Talk - Prefold Cloth Diapers

1. They are cheap. At $4 or less per diaper (depending on size and thickness) this is easily the cheapest way to cloth diaper. You can get enough diapers to get you through your baby’s entire diapering period for less than $200. 2. They are soft. After they quilt up in the first few washes, they are soft and fluffy and comfortable. I know I would be willing to wear them around my sensitive parts if I needed to, so I feel good about my baby wearing them. Simply Prefolds are so softer! 3. It is easy to care for prefolds.

Cloth 201: Recycle Cloth Diapers

Like most things in our closet, cloth diapers live beyond the last day that they go on your baby’s bottom. Now you can recycle or re-home your cloth diapers with Cotton Babies. Cotton Babies supports the circular economy through single stream recycling of cloth diapers. We find a home for your used cloth diapers in a cloth diaper bank or with a partners who re-process and re-purpose fabrics. Until now, most cloth diapers eventually reached landfills. Are you committed to reduce landfill waste? Do you believe in the circular economy? Don’t throw that cloth diaper in the trash. Recycle it.

Building Businesses

Not long ago, we were approached by Little House on the Prairie regarding licensing prints on our diapers. As I considered the opportunity, my daughter brought home the books and began reading the series. As she read, she was filtering those stories through the lens of current political and social events, reflecting wisdom and awareness beyond her years. In her own way, she was reminding her mama about the importance of learning from history through our modern experience and reflecting that learning experience into something purposeful for the future. As we engage with early pioneer history, we find stories to

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

Our Employees Bring Babies to Work… and We Make it Work
May 19, 2015 8:08 pm | by

Having started my business with a little person in my lap or crawling around my feet, I am an avid advocate for parents who want to bring a baby to work for a period of time after returning from maternity leave.  Making this allowance for employees enables them to further develop the parenting relationship after baby joins their family and, where applicable, also elongates the length of time a parent is able to exclusively breastfed a child.  Employers who want to have a family friendly environment can make some simple adjustments to their employee manual that allow this to be possible and productive for both the

Share the Love now shipping diapers to families in need. #sharethelove

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
