Cloth Diapering - Part II

After looking around at some cloth diapering resources here in Western Massachusetts - specifically in the Pioneer Valley - I found A Child's Garden in Northampton.

I haven't been there yet, but my understanding of A Child's Garden is that it is a toy store as well as a wonderful resource for parents in the area, as they offer workshops on a variety of parenting topics such as Breastfeeding, Babywearing and - yep, you guessed it! - Cloth Diapering!

They are also one of the few retailers in this area of bumGenius diapers and products, a company of which I am just hearing more and more wonderful things as I continue to research this whole thing.


  1. Hi! I just saw your link to the new site from Wandering Allen. Congrats again on your pregnancy - so exciting!!
    This isn't really in Western MA - but it's pretty close - my cousin owns a resale/consignment store in Brattleboro, VT (just about 45 min up I-91). it's called Whippersnappers (
    She just posted on Facebook that they got a big selection of gently used cloth diapers in stock (don't worry - no stains, no smells, good condition). Might be worth checking out! She also has slings, wraps and tons of children's clothing.

  2. I just love your blog and I think your article is so awesome!! I love antiques and what a way to go green!! I think the towels would just be so adorable also. Thanks for sharing the story about how it was made. Makes it that more special! Take care, Fran.
