Thursday Love - "Going Green Dipey"

I'm so very impressed with Dave's daughter, Jolene, for being a stay at home mom of three boys and yet still finding time to help save the planet. She does many things to help the environment but making her own cloth diapers is one step I had not heard of.


They are made with a flannel material that is colorful on the outside with a white flannel on the inside. It has an absorbent inside liner that is like a washcloth folded into 3rds and it is fastened with a Velcro strip. Baby Warrrick is now 3 mos old and wears these during the day. He has very sensitive skin at the legs with the plastic diapers but she still uses them a night and for outings due to leakage. They are washed and hung out to dry in the breeze.

Here is Warrick wearing mommy's love diapers. ;

Here is a cute tush that is doing his part to go green! Great job Jolene!


Love for a child and the environment makes the perfect "Love Thursday" find!

It is nice that she has the time...maybe she can get a patent on this and have other parents that have to work full time purchase such diapers.

I really admire Jolene's willingness to go the extra mile when disposables are so convenient. It will surely make a big "green" difference.

Trevor used to "go green" in his diapers when he was sick as a kid :)

As a mom from one of the first disposable diaper generations, this is beyond me. However, I have to really admire Jolene for what she is doing and they sure are CUTE.

That is so cool - I never would have thought of that - but that sure is much better for the environment - and probably a lot better for that little cutie, too! Kudos to your daughter-in-law!
