Product Focus: Gro Baby

The Natural Baby Company’s mission has always been to create the ultimate in cloth diapering and natural baby products. Gro Baby™ a revolution in the cloth diapering has taken the market by storm.

The Natural Baby Company’s product lines include: Gro Baby, Dream Eze, Pocket Change, Wonder Wraps, Kiwi Pie and Magic Stick. Each product was designed out of necessity and innovation.

Buying from The Natural Baby Company means you are purchasing well made, often organic, products that have been tested and proven in the marketplace. Since its inception NBC has practiced supporting small businesses that help sustain healthy lifestyle choices, such as cloth diapering.

HISTORY
Kim and Duane Ormsby, owners of the Natural Baby Company (NBC), started in 2003, originally as Montana's Diaper Store. Since then, NBC has grown into both an online retail store and a local brick & mortar store. The focus of the company is design and manufacturing of natural baby products worldwide.

Kim's experience as a mother of four has helped shape a conscientious business of fair market practices and well designed, ethically manufactured products at affordable prices.

THE TEAM
The Natural Baby Co. is a fantastic group of hardworking men and women both in the U.S. and China that love cloth diapering and natural parenting and have chosen to make a career of it!

OUR PRODUCTION
The Natural Baby Company (NBC) and its manufacturing facilities adhere to strict compliance agreements that allow for Fair Labor/Fair Wages. The Natural Baby Company provides great jobs both in the U.S. and abroad. Working hand in hand with the production family in Northern China, means everyone shares in the successes of the company.

Believing that they are only as good as the people they work with, NBC created standards of conduct. For NBC, "it all comes down to being an ethical and morally responsible company and holding vendors to those same standards!" says Kim Ormsby owner and CEO.

The Natural Baby Co. still holds U.S. production for their Kiwi Pie diaper line and Magic Stick locally crafted in Bozeman, Montana.

Our Products & General Certificate of Conformity
The Natural Baby Company certifies that all of our products are compliant with the lead content in accessible substrate materials in selected parts as defined by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.

GRO BABY

Designed by a mother of four, Gro Baby™ combines an eco friendly product that is easy to use, stylish and economical.

Gro Baby™ features a one-size waterproof shell made of soft, yet durable materials and a snap-in Certified Organic Cotton Soaker Pad. This unique system allows users to simply remove a wet soaker pad and replace with a fresh one.

Gro Baby’s simple to use one-size design saves parents money and uses much less water and detergent than its cloth diaper counterparts. Its unique design is the fruit of many hours working with a team who have designed for Patagonia, Arc’teryx and Keen.

Using Gro Baby™ means less non-biodegradable waste in our landfills, less money spent on disposable products, and a dioxin free option in diapering, all in one smartly designed diaper.

I bought some of these and absolutely love them! They work really well, are nice and trim, and the velcro closure is awesome! I was about to give up on velcro because some of my other dipes are showing wear with the velcro, but these truly rock!

Sarah said...

A Psych Mommy said...

I so want to try these diapers out! I'm on a strict budget until I know for sure that I have a job next year, but it looks like these would make economical sense though since they use less water, etc. when washing!

Katie said...

I bought a GroBaby to try and I really like it too. I was disappointed to find out they were made in China. I would be willing to pay a bit more if they were made in the US.

Lacy said...

I am going to order some of these.. I think they are super cute and love the hot colors.. I like the fact you can use the shell more than once if need be and that the insert snaps in.. I can't wait to get my baby in these.. :)
