As part of the Real Diaper Association’s School of Cloth 2014, they’ve asked participants to perform a cloth diaper absorbency experiment. Whether or not you’re a blogger, pull out those inserts, prefolds, flats and fitteds and add your data!
Cloth diaper co-ops. Like cloth diaper detergents, this discussion can really divide the cloth diaper community. Throughout my journey, I’ve had the pleasure of working with cloth diaper manufacturers, retailers, and cloth diapering families. I’ve become friends with many, and stood beside an old friend of mine as she started her own store. I’ve also been in the position of wanting to cloth diaper, but having limited (that is, essentially none at all) funds to do so. The Real Diaper Association (RDA) is not an industry organization, but an organization to advocate for cloth diapering (I’m a member.) They released a report on how co-ops affect cloth diapering as a whole, not just how it affects one aspect or part of the industry. I want to share my thoughts, as well as some parts of the report that struck a chord for me.
