Yes, you CAN cloth diaper your baby!

There is an unfortunate myth rolling around many parenting circles (and the all too common people-who-have-an-opinion-on-your-parenting circles) that cloth diapering is some crazy difficult thing to do that will somehow result in parents disappearing from society. (If you are about to be a first time parent, be prepared for that disappearance, but for entirely different reasons like, for example, the fact that you haven't had a chance to shower in five days.)

Sadly, people often are deterred from cloth diapering without really knowing anything about it.  The truth is, cloth diapering is easy. Like really easy.

The best way to get started is to learn the basics of cloth diapering, which will help you decide which diapers you might want to try. Then, once you've learned about the various types - and there really are not that many - it's time to jump in with both feet.

If you're nervous, then (A) don't be; and (B) feel free to start off cloth diapering part time and see how it goes. Lots of people start out with just using cloth diapers when they are at home until they have time to really get used to using their diapers.

In fact, when I first started cloth diapering, I used to ALWAYS use disposables when we were out and about...until that fateful day when my sweet little 2-month-old had a massive blowout while I was wearing him at the mall. I ended up covered in poop and had to beat a hasty retreat for home. After that, I insisted on cloth even when we traveled out of town.

The thing to remember with cloth diapering is that people have been doing this FOREVER. Disposable diapers are still a relatively new phenomenon. Most of our parents were cloth diapered simply because that was just what you did. Even if disposables were available, they were way too expensive and so wasteful. And, I respectfully submit, they still are!

Another thing about cloth diapering is that if you talk to people who use cloth on their babies, you almost always find that those people are really, really excited about it. ASK THEM FOR HELP.

I'm so serious. They may appear to be a little overzealous at first, but really, they just want to help you find the love for cloth diapering, too. And when they realize that you are a potential kindred spirit, they will be so excited to assist you with any issues, questions, or problems you may have on your cloth diapering journey.

If you don't know anyone who cloth diapers in real life, fear not! There are a ton of cloth diapering groups on Facebook and elsewhere on the web, where people will be all too happy to troubleshoot with you. And we at Stella's Baby Boutique would be absolutely THRILLED to hear from you with any questions, concerns, issues, or even just a note to say, "Hey! I love cloth diapers, how about you?" Email us any time at Charity@StellasBabyBoutique.com.

If you think you are ready to give cloth diapering a try, we hope you will come shop with Stella's Baby Boutique and help to support our very small business. We would be so honored to have your business, and even if you decide not to shop with us, we would love to help you get started!

Northern Virginia Cloth Diaper Store Makes Diaper Shopping Personal

Stella's Baby Boutique is excited to announce that we will now be offering in-person cloth diaper shopping. In order to keep prices low, we have decided not to open a brick and mortar store, but we do want to offer our local Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. metro area customers a chance to browse our inventory in person before buying.

Hands-on shopping

What is our solution? We bring the inventory to you!

Our owner and operator, Charity, will make an appointment to meet with you at a convenient-to-you location for a free consultation and shopping experience. If you are new to cloth diapers, Charity will provide you with an introductory overview and answer any questions you have. She will also give you an opportunity to look at our products and see what you might like to try.

Baby Showers

If you are having a baby shower, registering for cloth diapers is a great idea. However, people sometimes feel overwhelmed by the options, even with a cloth diaper registry, and they opt to buy other things instead.

A great way to help you get the cloth diapers you need for your baby is to have a table of diapers at your baby shower. Charity will bring the inventory that you select for your registry to the shower and set up a display so that your guests can opt to buy them right there.

Cloth Diaper Parties

Another fantastic way to learn more about our products and see them in person is to have a cloth diaper party.  This is a party where Charity comes and provides a brief introduction to cloth diapering, plays some games (with prizes!), and helps your guests to choose a cloth diaper solution that works for them.

Host a party, and get a free gift from Stella's Baby Boutique just for hosting!

And more!

Whatever your specific needs, Charity and Stella's Baby Boutique are here to help! We love cloth diapers and would be thrilled to introduce you to them or help you meet a specific need. Please feel free to browse our website and email us at Charity@StellasBabyBoutique.com with any questions or to set up a baby shower, cloth diaper party, or an in-person shopping adventure.

Stella's is giving back with Giving Diapers, Giving Hope

Here at Stella's Baby Boutique, we have a lot of new and exciting things in store for 2015.  One new initiative that I am very excited to announce is our decision to pay it forward by contributing diapers to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope, a nonprofit organization that helps provide low-income families with cloth diapers.

Retroactive to the beginning of 2015, Stella's Baby Boutique will be donating one diaper for every 10 we sell to Giving Diapers, Giving Hope.  We are excited to know that these donations will help to make cloth diapering a reality for other families, and we are thrilled to have a fun way to make our customers a part of the giving process.

As a new and very small retailer, we are aware that our initial contributions will be small, but it is our hope that in time, we will be able to make larger and larger donations. In addition to this initiative, we also recently introduced a $99 complete cloth diapering package, which is designed to make cloth diapering available to everyone. 

Thank you for your support of Stella's Baby Boutique and of Giving Diapers, Giving Hope.

How to cloth diaper your baby for under $100

There are many reasons to use cloth diapers.  Some parents use them because cloth diapers are environmentally-friendly, while others love how much money cloth diapers save them.  Often, it is a combination of these and other cloth diaper benefits that lead parents to decide to cloth diaper their children.

As Stella's Baby Boutique's founder and owner, I was first attracted to cloth diapering because of the savings.  Sadly, many parents feel they are unable to switch to cloth diapers because the initial costs can be intimidating.  In fact, parents who are living in poverty are sometimes forced to resort to reusing disposable diapers.

When I heard about this, I decided to design a package that allows my customers to diaper their children from birth to potty-training for less than $100 total. That's right.  You can cloth diaper for under $100!

The package includes the following items:
  1. 6 Buttons diaper covers of the buyer's choice
  2. 15 Osocozy flat diapers
  3. 2-pack of Snappis diaper fasteners
  4. 1 Kawaii Goodnight Heavy Wetter
Purchased separately, these items would cost well over $100, but if you purchase the package, the entire lot is just $99.  And it ships for free!

In addition to the items listed above, this package also comes with an informational brochure to help those who are new to cloth diapering figure out how best to utilize this package in order to best meet your child's needs.  Stella's Baby Boutique is always available to help answer cloth diapering questions.  Email us anytime!

Benefits of cloth diapering

Cloth diapering is slowly but surely becoming a more popular choice for parents in the United States.  Although the majority of parents still use disposable diapers, concerns about the environment, as well as other factors, have spurred public interest in alternatives to disposable diapers.
 
The benefits of cloth diapering are numerous and significant. Many people are surprised to find that they prefer cloth over disposables.  Listed below are just a few of the reasons why people choose cloth diapers.
 
  1. Cloth diapers are far better for the environment than disposables.  The average child will use more than 6,000 diapers from birth to potty training. Imagine filling a truck with 6,000 diapers and then dumping them all into a landfill.  Now imagine that those diapers contain human waste, and you can really get a feel for how damaging disposable diapers are to our environment.
  2. Cloth diapers are very affordable.  While the upfront costs can be high, depending on what diapering options you select, you can potentially save thousands of dollars by using cloth diapers instead of disposables.
  3. Cloth diapers provide a safe alternative to chemical-ridden disposable diapers.  Disposable diapers contain many chemicals that are potentially harmful to your child, including dioxins, which have been linked to many long-term health issues.  In fact, according to the website Livestrong.com, research indicates that "disposable diapers should be considered to be a factor that may cause or worsen childhood asthma and respiratory problems."
  4. Cloth diapers make for much cuter baby pictures.  It may sound silly, but with all the bright colors and fun prints that cloth diapers come in, you may find that they make for better pictures.  Case in point, my own son, pictured below in his Grinch diaper.  You cannot tell me this picture would be quite the same with a disposable diaper.


If you think you can't afford the upfront cost of cloth diapering, consider this.  At Stella's Baby Boutique, we offer a package that is designed to allow you to cloth diaper your child from birth to potty training for less than $100. This is the cheapest way to cloth diaper your baby that we offer.  It includes daily use diapers, overnight diapers, and an informational packet that teaches users how to use the diapers in this package to full advantage.

Our mission is to make sure that anyone who wants to cloth diaper can do so.  Please contact
Stella's Baby Boutique with any questions on how to get started with cloth diapering or any other aspect of cloth diapering.
