This year, our focus has been on moving the #makeclothmainstream mission off of social media and out into the real world. We've teamed up with amazing brands in the cloth community (HUGE thanks to: Allen's Naturally, AppleCheeks, Bambino Mio, Bummis, Lalabye Baby, Molly's Suds, Osocozy, Project Pomona, Rumparooz, and Thirsties!) to bring cloth diapers to mainstream baby shows across the US and educate families on the benefits of choosing cloth. As a result, I've met tons of families who went from zero knowledge to cloth curious, and I've gained a lot of insight into what the average expecting family doesn't realize about modern cloth diapers based on the most frequently asked questions at our booth.
After some reflection, I realized that this would make a fantastic blog series to help families get started with cloth. I'll be tackling the most commonly asked questions I hear on our #makeclothmainstream IRL tour, and I'll cover the ins and outs of getting going with cloth from the "where to begin" all the way to potty learning to help guide you to cloth diapering success.
Next week we'll be posting about Step 1 in the process, which to me is doing the research. I'm a huge planner, so this is right up my alley! Stay tuned to find out the best ways to research to get the most up-to-date and useful information on cloth diapers and how to use them.
Be sure to leave any of your questions below and I'll try to address them as well. We hope you'll join us in this series and let any of your cloth curious friends know that we hope to answer their biggest questions about cloth. Hopefully this will make the decision to use cloth diapers even easier!
