So you’re thinking of taking the step towards welcoming cloth diapering into your life? Such a step may seem overwhelming, but with the right resources, you can totally do it. I myself am slowly but surely venturing back into it, and for my refresher information, I consulted my local cloth diaper guru, Happy Baby Company And lucky for you, they ship nation-wide. They’re a great source for decently-priced goods, and their website is chalk-full of information regarding the science of cloth diapering. They’ve also got some other great baby toys, baby wellness products and gifts.
The biggest key to getting comfortable with cloth diapering is choosing the right kind. There are so many different options, Happy Baby Company will be the first to tell you to try each one a bit until you find the perfect fit. If you commit to one type right away and are uncomfortable with it, you may be ruining cloth diapering for yourself for good. Well the Happy Baby Company website has a great program that allows you to rent and try out cloth diapers for a $1 a day.
Once you find the right fit, you can purchase your own cloth diapers through Happy Baby Company‘s very wide selection. And if you do end up purchasing diapers and are unhappy with a brand and have multiples that you haven’t used, Happy Baby Company keeps a history of your purchases, and as long as your item hasn’t been used or washed, you can exchange it with something you are happier with. And since their website offers free shipping for orders over $35, there’s no risk in buying a few of the same type of diaper and returning what doesn’t work out.
And if you live locally and find the initial cost of building your cloth diaper collection a bit more than you can handle, you can take advantage of their used cloth diaper program. Local patrons can also schedule for Happy Baby Company’s cloth diaper orientation classes.
The website also features more information on cloth diapers such as how to wash them, how much you’ll be saving throughout the lifetime of your cloth diaper usage, and how you are improving the health of your baby and the environment.
So if you were teetering back and forth between cloth and disposable and needed the extra kick, here it is. And if you are a cloth diaper guru yourself, then support a small business with your art of cloth diapering. Not to mention this fun fact: you’ll be buying from a husband-wife duo who run their business while taking their kids to work with them!
