The cloth diaper community is unique. Oftentimes, cloth diaper mamas are passionate about cloth diapers and are interested in teaching others about their many benefits. And when they are finished diapering their own babies, they want to help others. We are thankful to be a part of this community. It was the generosity of one mom whose gift kicked off what would evolve into Cotton Babies. One friend saw that her friend, Jenn, was struggling. She offered her a stash of cloth diapers to get her started. That simple act of giving ignited a spark that grew into selling baby

As much as I love cloth diapers, I also love the satisfaction of completing the potty training process! First – it’s important to remember that kids learn to use the toilet at different times. There are tons of philosophies on potty training. I’m of the opinion that it’s best to wait until your child is ready. How do you know they’re ready? They show interest in the potty. They’re not scared. They want to try sitting on the potty. They tell you when they need a diaper change. They sometimes wake up dry from naps. They sometimes have a dry

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

Recently, Walmart announced published its goal of Zero Plastic Waste. In summation, the company plans to use less plastic, recycle more and find alternatives. The company goes on to detail how it will achieve these goals by 2025. As a company dedicated to making reusable alternatives available to the mass market, we applaud Walmart on its endeavor to take a greener approach in its strategy. Reusable Options When we pitched a new product to Walmart, we knew a reusable product made in the USA would be what set us apart from what Walmart was currently selling. Earlier this year, our
I am a mom to 2 kids, a boy and a girl. Thanks to some super generous cousins who have given us plenty of their gently used hand-me-down clothes, we’ve tried many types of baby shoes over the years. For babies who are just learning to walk, I definitely prefer a soft sole shoe. It helps the baby to feel the ground and prevents them from getting tripped up on some chunky, heavy soles. Baby Shoes to Avoid While we’ve worn some darling sandals and flip-flops, those are difficult to keep on. Shoes that constantly fall off baby’s feet are
