Cloth Diapers: the ultimate guide to textiles, washing, and more was originally published as an eBook in May 2020, and as a paperback in October 2020 after spending over a year writing, drawing and photographing content for the book.

Thank you to everyone who purchased the first draft even though it was riddled in errors. Your support of me and this book inspired me to ensure that a better version was available for wholesale and in 2021. 

Additional updates include removing brands that are out of business, adding new products, and changing opinions. This is the only cloth diaper book undergoing regular updates as needed.

About Bailey Bouwman

Author of Cloth Diapers: the ultimate guide to textiles, washing & more

Professional Cloth Diaper Educator

Bailey brings 5+ years of cloth diapering experience and conversation to the cloth diaper space. She’s not just your every day mom blogger sharing her experience – Bailey is immersed in the cloth diaper community learning from other parents and growing as an individual. She wants to find the cloth diaper solution that truly works for you.

Bailey believes we need to stop and listen to cloth diapering parents. We need to recognize our own bias and preferences and focus on solutions that work for you, not us. The Cloth Diaper community needs to recognize the privilege of being able to cloth diaper, and provide spaces for more conversations and stories.

Cloth diapering is not about rules but about our own strength as parents to do the best we can for our children with the resources available.

Anyone can Cloth Diaper

Because cloth diapering is a diverse array of experiences that includes disposables and hybrid models.

You can cloth diaper in apartments, camping, traveling, and across the globe.

You can start today with a newborn or a toddler/adult.

 

This book is focused on cloth diaper basics

Skip the mile long blog post and buy this book. I never wrote a Cloth 101 blog post because I couldn’t ever condense it into something easy to read. Instead, this book – originally intended to be a 20 page guide to getting started, offers you 264 pages of terms, definitions, graphics and more so that you know the right questions to get the right diaper.

Frequently Asked Questions

About the Cloth Diaper Book

I already know how to cloth diaper, is this book for me?

No. This book is for beginners and written for those who have no idea where to even start. 

Do you have a Facebook Group?

No. I don’t. You can find me on Instagram

I still don't know where to start....

I need help.

You can reach out to me on Instagram and Romi or myself will help you answer the question, but what I love most is the power of the community. And recommend that you visit All About Cloth Diapers Chat on Facebook to ask. If you email me, I might also ask on my feeds for community input.

However, because I do work a full time job along with managing the podcast shows, and more, I find myself with less time and less knowledge. I really want to connect you with the right person who knows that answer. 

How is this different than your blog?

Yes, you could learn everything you need about cloth diapering by following me on Instagram, YouTube or my blogs. But this book offers everything in one easy to reach resource. This is a guide that you can keep on the table, give to friends, and it’s physical. It’s not anything new, it’s just a physical way to learn about cloth diapers. 

There's a spelling mistake...

It happens.

I’m a copywriter by day, but I’m not perfect. Even with the assitance of the community, friends and family mistakes happen. Thank you for recognizing the mistake, but it will be the way it is until the next revision. Enjoy.

I want my brand featured

 I showcase brands based on what I had in my stash or because the brand has a unique feature (copyright) that the community needed to learn about and why it works. I will not edit the book to add in new brands. A better way is to work with me on social media.

If you want to work with me, I reviews and promotions. 

Will you be writing more books?

Yes. I’m working on a project with a friend, and have plans for a confessional style book. 

I bought a hard copy and love it!

I love how you provide clear information from which people can make their own choices. Great job! This is a valuable resource, and I even learnt a few things.

Green Mountain Diapers

Thank you so much for creating your book! I haven’t finished it yet, but I jumped straight to the laundry section and it made me feel so much better…. I feel reassured that I can experiment and create my own routine that works for me.

Sarah

It’s truly incredible and all answered all my questions. I am purchasing a few diapers today to get started! Can you believe it? I feel confident.
