you've gotta have friends

I just wanted to share the two new outfits we just got in to the shop. These are handmade by a wonderful WAHM that I met in an online forum (we both had babies in August). She sells through our shop now, but also sells through Etsy at Mountain Aven Baby.

These outfits are so cute!!

Holistic Moms Conference

The last couple weeks have been big conference weeks for us. A week ago Sunday we went up to North Jersey (Mahwah, the tippy top of NJ) and exhibited at the Holistic Moms Conference. We met a lot of wonderful mamas! This was our first conference, and we learned a lot (like, wear a winter coat, it was 40 degrees in the room when we first arrived!). There were a few other folks there who carried similar stuff to us, but none of them had bricks-and-mortar shops, they were all online vendors.

Here's a picture of our table:

We've already had a customer come in who saw us at the conference, and we hope more will follow!

The good news is that cloth diapering is becoming more and more popular. The bad news is that the cloth diaper companies are having trouble keeping up with demand. The best news is that we have received our shipment of bumGenius cloth diapers and so now have all colors in stock!

Some diapering statistics...

If you use disposable diapers on a child for three years, you will go through approximately 10,000 diapers (ten thousand!!).

The cost of disposable diapers is around $1,000 per year.

$500 will buy you 24 one-size pocket diapers that will last throughout a baby's diapering years...and you can use them for multiple babies!
