100% Reusable Cloth Diapers Every Time


As an organization, Real Diaper Association supports the use of 100% reusable cloth diapers.

We are concerned about the waste created by disposable products, no matter whether that waste is sent to a landfill for 1000 years, flushed and disposed of through wastewater treatment, or composted and disposed of as yard waste. Reusable products do not create waste.

We know a lot of our donors and volunteers work hard to find ways to keep babies in 100% reusable cloth diapers all of the time, and we want to recognize you. We also want to use your expertise to create support materials to help you in continuing your advocacy and support work.
Announcing the 100% Reusable Cloth Diapers Campaign

The Real Diaper Association announces the 100% Reusable Cloth Diapers Campaign to help parents choose reusable cloth diapers every time, all the time. For the next year we will ask the experts for advice on overcoming any difficulties cloth diapering parents may face. Then we will compile that advice and provide it to parents and caregivers who need support.

Who are the experts? They are experienced cloth diapering parents willing to share what they know with new parents, health care providers, and others.

You are the experts! Parents who find 100% reusable solutions in every cloth diapering situation have valuable tips and techniques to share with those who are struggling to succeed.

I would join RDA but the $25 yearly fee is just too much for me. Sad.

I left my nighttime diapering tips and downloaded my badge. One of our hardest difficulties in using CD was figuring out the night time issue. So glad for this resource!

Heather said...

what do you do what cloth diapers once all your children are out of diapers?

Jenney said...

Nighttime diapering was a nightmare for us for awhile, but we have it down now. I think it is one of the hardest things to do when you start to CD. Left my comments and downloaded my badge! Thanks for the info.

In response to Heather, you can sell them! It's an inexpensive way for people that want to CD to build their supply. A good resource for selling is Craigs list, as it's free.

@The Beck Bunch: You can become a fan of the Real Diaper Association on Facebook! This promotes it to your friends to raise awareness (no membership fee!).

I think nighttime cloth diapering is a good topic for them to start with. I know that was quite a struggle for several months until I figured out the right solution for my daughter.

Thanks for sharing this!

Heather- you can sell your used diapers, give them away to charities OR you can use them as cleaning cloths.
