Expecting a baby and dread using so many disposables? Is the expected cost of disposable diapers overwhelming? Go green, save money, and learn more about cloth diapers at our workshop!
In this information-packed workshop, you will learn about all of the modern cloth diaper options as well as laundering, accessories, and general care of your diapers. You will have the opportunity to touch and feel the diapers and practice diapering, along with asking questions, registering for our Newborn Cloth Diaper Rental program, or making a purchase.
Because this workshop focuses primarily on cloth diapering newborns, it is perfect for expectant parents, families, and caretakers or those with infants less than two months old. While we do cover the full range of cloth diapering options and what to expect as your baby grows, parents of older children may prefer to try our Experiment to Own program, which is geared towards families with babies over twelve pounds (about three months old). (In that case, simply come in to our store during regular business hours for help by one of our staff - no appointment necessary!)
Come to our most popular workshop and check out the largest selection of cloth diapers in greater Boston to choose a green and modern diapering solution for your baby and your family! We look forward to seeing you, and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
Workshops will be held at our retail location at 200 Elm Street North, Cambridge, MA (Davis Square).
