This week, we are back to the basics. From our neighbors in Joplin, MO cleaning up after Sunday night’s storm to our cloth diapering community acquiring new skills with a Flats Challenge this week, we know there are times in life that just require a simple, tried and true method of cloth diapering. We appreciate the simplicity and accessibility of Econobum cloth diapers. They are designed to be affordable for any family. The inserts are made of cotton, an absorbent, natural fiber.

If you’ve been following the blog recently, you know we’ve been thinking a lot about how to spread the word about cloth diapers to families who may not know cloth diapers are a viable option. Last week, Jenn shared how to diaper your baby when you can’t afford disposable or cloth diapers.

Throughout my cloth diapering career our family has experienced circumstances and phases that have dictated our ability to use (or not to use) cloth diapers. There have been seasons of all cloth all the time, seasons of disposable dependence, and seasons of both (cloth at home and disposables on the go). I read Jenn’s recent post about families struggling to buy disposable diapers and sometimes choosing between buying diapers and food. Providing Econobum to needy families is really exciting. It got me thinking. I know that using cloth diapers saves money. I know that an Econobum Full Kit costs less
We’ve shared previously in Cloth Diapers 101 some of the different terms associated with cloth diapers and the types of cloth diapers. But how you do really know what style will work best for you? How do you choose a place to start that will help you be successful in your cloth diapering journey? First of all, why are you interested in cloth diapering? Many parents initially look at cloth diapering for environmental reasons — and with good cause! Disposable diapers are the third most common consumer product in landfills today. A disposable diaper may take up to 500 years

Give Cloth Diapers.” You can change a family’s life (and how well they are able to feed their children) by giving them cloth diapers. Kimberly Clark has been airing commercials recently about their “Every Little Bottom” campaign. They now know what we already knew… many families are choosing between diapers and groceries. While I’m
