Cloth on Ellen!

I am loving all the buzz that my fellow cloth diaper moms are creating about getting the "Modern Cloth Diaper" featured on Ellen! I wanted to put in my two cents!

I use cloth for all the same reasons as everyone else; the environment, the savings, the cuteness, etc..., but, I also use them because I love the feeling of knowing that I am supporting WAHMs and small businesses.
I get great satisfaction when I buy a diaper from Etsy or Hyena Cart, knowing that I am helping make a difference for a family. I love knowing that when I buy a Bum Genius Organic AIO from Nell's Natural Baby that I am supporting Nell and in a less direct way, Jen. I really love that I KNOW who it is that I am supporting!! There is a sense of community that I cannot get by buying a pack of Earth's Best diapers from Babies R Us.

And you know what else is fun?? The lingo! The abbreviations and such that confused me when I first started are now like an elite language! Pockets, AIOs, fitteds, longies, PUL... I could go on and on!

Venturing into the world of cloth has introduced me to more natural ways to live, more eco-friendly products, and ways to live a much greener lifestyle. It is one of the best things that I have done for my baby, our family and the planet.
