I cloth diaper my baby because of the non-chemical aspect. And plus, they are WAY cuter than any disposable diaper! Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader?

November Spotlight Family

Jamie York I have two children, 6yrs and 8 months. We’ve been using Cloth Diapers for about 2 months and plan to continue through potty training! What is the #1 reason you cloth diaper your baby? Because the cost of disposables is outrageous! Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader? Myself. What is your favorite diaper and why? BumGenius 4.0 because I’m always in a hurry and don’t have enough of a diaper stash. The covers air dry within just a couple of hours and are easy to grab and go. If you had one superhero power, what would it be and why? Turn all the laundry clean (and neatly put away) with the wave of my hand (or blink of the eyes Genie style). Describe your parenting style using three words. Loving, Balanced, Listen What is one product you absolutely can’t live without? Ummm.. the diapers. How do you think being a parent has changed you? Because of being a parent, I’m forced to be more patient and empathetic. Having discussions with my oldest child and helping her through questions and problems she goes through has helped me to understand myself and others better.

October Spotlight Family

Belinda Lamprecht My husband and I live in South Africa, and work for a mission agency. We have two amazing kiddos, a daughter who is nine, and a 16 month old stuntman. What is the #1 reason you cloth diaper your baby? I told my husband that it was to save money; but honestly, it was mostly it was because cloth diapers are just irresistibly cute. Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader? My husband, who knows we are saving money and now gets what I mean when I say cloth diapers are irresistibly cute. What is your favorite diaper and why? I am a big fan of bumGenius pocket diapers; they fit great, work well, are easy to use, daddy-friendly… and irresistibly cute.

Lead by example. What is one product you absolutely can’t live without? Wet bags. How do you think being a parent has changed you?

August Spotlight Family

Jill Shoemaker I’m a stay at home mom to 2 daughters, 3.5 year old Keeley and 1 year old Brennan, married to Matthew for 11 years. What is the #1 reason you cloth diaper your baby? At first, we thought we’d cloth diaper to save money, and then we realized all the possible benefits: health, ecological, and cuteness! I guess it’s a little bit of everything now. Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader? Definitely my husband, he was open to it from the very beginning and happily changes diapers (okay maybe happily is a stretch), from AIO to prefold with ease. What is your favorite diaper and why? After trying nearly every style, I’ve centered back on the AIO as my favorite style, because of the ease of use and friendliness for anyone doing the diaper change. Other types still have their uses, but daddy definitely reaches for AIOs and they are our diaper bag go-to for outings. We have all 3 styles of BG AIOs and like them all. If you had one superhero power, what would it be and why? Is super-napping a power? I’d love to get 5 minutes of rest and be fully refreshed. Describe your parenting style using three words. Without bubble wrap! What is one product you absolutely can’t live without? Cloth wipes How do you think being a parent has changed …

July Spotlight Family

Erin Anderson We are a growing family of five (when you include our lovable golden retriever) committed to leaving this world to our children in better shape than we found it! What is the #1 reason you cloth diaper your baby? We just could not imagine spending so much money to put chemicals we didn’t want on our babies in the first place, in the landfills. Who has been your biggest cloth diapering supporter/cheerleader? My mom, she is always supportive of my “not-so-mainstream” parenting decisions. What is your favorite diaper and why? The bumGenius 4.0, we have two babies in cloth and these make cloth diapering a snap (pun intended) even for Daddy! If you had one superhero power, what would it be and why? Carrying two babies, a diaper bag, & a golden retriever up three flights of stairs in a single bound! Wait, I already do that. Describe your parenting style using three words. Gentle, loving, strong. What is one product you absolutely can’t live without? Bummis biodegradable flushable liners for on the go. How do you think being a parent has changed you? In every way possible. I’m still me, but I’m a better, more conscious, ever-learning me. Everything I do is motivated by bettering myself, my life, and this Earth for my children.
