The Green Diaper Store

Well my friends, I took the plunge. With the help of The Green Diaper Store, I have been trying my hand at...

CLOTH DIAPERING.

Oh yes, its true. And guess what. I LIKE IT! Thanks to Lisa, the owner of The Green Diaper Store, I am off to a GREAT start with it. She is probably THE MOST helpful person I have ever worked with. She even called me and spent 20 minutes explaining the different options for cloth diapering and how they all work. I think she should travel the world teaching Cloth Diapering 101.

I have started my journey with the All in One Sampler pack. This includes one BumGenius, one BumGenius Organic, and one Swaddlebees. I thought this would be the easiest way to get started so I didn't have to keep track of any inserts, pre-folds, etc. I really like all 3 of these diapers. They each fit my little one, (ok so he's not so little at 20 lbs.) perfectly, and I have so far had no leaks. However since I only have 3 diapers, I am still using disposables too. I have yet to use one of these at night. The only downside to these all in one diapers is that they take FOREVER to dry! That's the benefit of a pocket diaper. The insert comes out for faster drying. I will definitely be getting some of those to add to my collection.

And let me just say that there is not a whole lot of other things out there cuter than a little baby in a puffy cloth diaper! It simply cracks me up...and I love knowing it is good for my baby and good for the environment.

So if you're in the market for cloth diapers, whether you're new to cloth-diapering or a seasoned pro, I HIGHLY recommend The Green Diaper Store. The customer service absolutely can't be beat...Lisa has made herself available via email and phone to answer any questions I have. AND...she is offering a discount to our SIMPLE readers! Plus there is free shipping on orders over $79.00.

GET YOUR OWN!! (with a coupon!) The Green Diaper Store is generously offering a 10% discount by entering the code SIMPLE at checkout. (this DOES NOT include BumGenius, as required by the manufacturer.)

Happy Cloth Diapering!!

  1. I just had my 3rd baby and decided to go the cloth diaper route this time. I definitely have to say that I wish I had done it with my first two babies. It is not as hard as you think it is.

  2. I am going to watch how things go for you and may take the plunge myself.

  3. Hey Kate! I love all-in-ones too. I found that the brand "sposo easy" dries faster because it has a flap, rather than an insert or being sewn together. I have six that I use mixed in with disposables.
