77: Reminding you that you can be a Cloth Diaper advocate

77: Reminding you that you can be a Cloth Diaper advocate

September 20, 2021

I wanted to take a break from back to back stories of cloth diaper brands and retailers and just chat about what's going on in my head. This summer, I have consulted with many different brands, businesses and creators to share ideas, think about how we can do things.

 

And one of the biggest things we need is you. 

This is a short episode of just my thoughts on a Saturday afternoon after editing multiple episodes. I wanted to remind you that we need you to be an advocate, and that you know more than you think you know, and that you can do all those things you want to do.

 

Don't wait to be an admin.

Just go do it with kindness and love.

Celebrating 3 Years - A Cloth Diaper Conversation with Anna from Nerdy Mommas

July 26, 2021

It's been three years of bringing you over 70 episodes of cloth diapering stories from brands, retailers and parents around the world.

*Anna's audio quality has a low buzz that I was unable to correct, warning that this may not be comfortable listening experience for everyone* 

Today we circle back to chat with Anna from Nerdy Momma's Cloth Diapers. Anna was one of my first guests on the show. So we catch up and chat about where she is today, some of our goals in the cloth diaper community, and some of the challenges about growing cloth diaper businesses in 2021.

This is a conversation between cloth diaper friends, and I look forward to bringing you another year of cloth diapering content.

Cloth Diapering in the Philippines with Pam (@PamanaMama)

Cloth Diapering in the Philippines with Pam (@PamanaMama)

May 31, 2021

Pam reached out to share her story about using flat diapers on the Cloth Diaper Podcast, but this episode is more about the important work she does as a cloth diaper influencer and community leader in the Philippines. Pam's experience and background in social work really shapes her passion and we talk about how to support parents, how to support businesses, and some of the bigger government work that needs to be done.

The international cloth diaper community is a fantastic space to support and we have so many of the same goals. I hope that we all learn and feel inspired this year about how we can create inclusive content and maybe dream bigger and think about the social policies we need to better support cloth diapering, families, and the reusable industry.
