FREE Cloth Diapering Class

All-in-ones, pockets, pre-folds, fitteds - these aren't your old school cloth diapers. Paul and Kristin, the owners of Little Willow - simply natural baby, invite you to a free cloth diapering demonstration on Sunday, March 30th at 2pm. Come see (and touch!) cloth diapers from BumGenius, Bummis, Kissaluvs, Thirsties, Happy Heiny and others.

Old-fashioned cloth diapering systems consisted of a plain flat diaper pinned at the corners with a scratchy plastic cover. Today's cloth diapers come in a variety of more convenient styles and include adorable prints and colors, soft and cuddly fabrics, and simple and easy diapering solutions. In fact, cloth diapers come in so many varieties that parents who are new to cloth diapering often feel overwhelmed when trying to purchase their initial stash.

In addition to the aesthetic benefits, cloth diapers are environmentally friendly, chemical-free, and are less expensive than disposable diapers in the long run. Although many people are reluctant to use cloth diapers due to a fear of additional laundry duties, with the proper cloth diapering set-up, you only have to do 2-3 extra loads of laundry a week.

Little Willow would like to give you the opportunity to take the mystery out of cloth diapering and to come check out the cloth diapers in person. We have learned from personal experience that a few minutes playing with cloth diapers in real life beats hours of internet research.

If you are unable to attend the event at the scheduled time, please feel free to stop by or give us a call to set up another time for a free consultation.

Please RSVP by phone - 732-889-4808 or email - as space is limited.

pretty as a picture

Some more new items came in yesterday. These wonderful prints from The Seesaw Gallery are based on classic children's tales. The stretched canvas prints are 8" by 10" and can be hung alone or grouped together. The canvases also have the artist's information on the back of each print, making them a unique and creative gift. We have five different styles at Little Willow, here are two of our favorites:
