Cotton Babies babies

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we thought it would be fun to talk about what our employees love about Cotton Babies. Cotton Babies isn’t just a store and we don’t simply make cloth diapers. We’re changing things. Preserving the World for the Future Most of our employees are parents. As parents, many of us are concerned about the planet our children and grandchildren will inherit. We’re certainly not perfect, but it’s nice to know that for every baby that uses cloth diapers, 1 ton of garbage is kept out of a landfill. And we get to be a part of

June 13, 2017 8:00 am | by

It’s the million dollar question: “What do I need to start using cloth diapers?” Well, do you know the answer? If not, that’s okay. We just can’t give you $1,000,000.

June 7, 2017 8:00 am | by

I’ve been using cloth diapers for nearly two years. In the beginning, I had mostly Flip, a few bumGenius 4.0’s, a couple Freetimes, and one Elemental.

Econobum offers a great set of prefolds, but it’s easy to switch out inserts to get the perfect level of absorbency. That goes both ways

 
Genius in the Wild
June 6, 2017 1:46 pm | by

When we started the Genius Series, we were excited about all the brilliant worlds to explore. We began with Albert and Lovelace which come from the academic world, and then we explored genius in the wild with Maathai and Irwin!
