Cloth Diapering in My Family

This just in … my brother cloth diapered his baby girl, Bella, who is now 4 yrs old. Bella started wearing cloth diapers when she was about 6 months old allowing them to make one initial investment in some one-size diapers. I asked him if he could tell me what brands and styles he used [...]

Where can I buy cloth diapers?

This time I’d like to try cloth diapering for the following reasons: 1. To save money. 2. Help out the environment. [...]
