About the author.

Bailey Bouwman is the host of the Cloth Diaper Podcast – a somewhat regular Podcast dedicated to sharing stories of cloth diapering from parents around the world. She is a mom of two, content creator and copy writer, blogger living in Northern BC, Canada.

I believe that all of our stories are valid and we can’t gate keep what cloth diapering is or isn’t. Instead, we need to create supportive spaces to empower and encourage parents to thrive as themselves by trusting their intuition and doing what is simple.
