    Month of May showing record breaking sales of modern sustainable cotton diapers

    KENNESAW, GEORGIA – June 3, 2010 – What’s up with 21st century cloth diapers? They are definitely not your “Grandmother’s cloth diapers”. Enthusiasm and interest in the entire category of modern cloth diapers, not only in Bambino Mio, has been on an exceptional rise this spring, with record sales in May. As members of The Real Diaper Industry Association (RDIA), a nonprofit organization for manufacturers, retailers and diaper services, we have recently received reports indicating a clear increase in interest for cloth diapers, as well as in retailers’ actual sales. Diaper services have also seen a significant upswing in interest for their services and are working hard to adjust to the increased demand. Stores across the country have more parents and expecting parents than ever coming in to research cloth diaper options. Some are considering a switch from disposable diapers while others have already decided on cloth diapers as a cost saving and environmentally healthier alternative. Some wish to do their part to help protect the environment for future generations. Others say they no longer want to expose their babies’ sensitive skin to any of the chemicals used in disposable diapers.

    “Just like cloth diapers became a thing of the past eventually, disposable diapers are now becoming a thing of the past. They always say that trends come back around but I would say this is one that needs to stay. Everyone is starting to realize that not only is it much better for the Earth but it is also much better for the child's skin and it is much more cost effective. Being in a down economy has really encouraged our customers to consider cloth diapers. Plus they are so easy to use now it is almost foolish not to give them a try.”

    Lindsay Nelson of the New Baby Products store in Atlanta, Georgia

    As parents reflect on the 27 billion disposable diapers sent to landfills each year in the United States alone, the choice seems easy and logical. The more families use cloth diapers, switching to disposable diapers only when out and about, the more money they save. There are many ways to increase their savings, e.g. by washing in phosphate free detergents specifically designed for cold water and hanging diapers to dry instead of using the dryer. Parents can easily save $1,500 <www.babycenter.com/babyCostCalculator.htm> with the first child and substantially more with subsequent children, as the cloth diapers last through multiple children. This takes into account the initial investment and washing/energy use.

    Today’s consumer is more environmentally aware than ever. The more parents start to look into sensible cotton diapers and see the advantages, the more the category is growing. The 2-piece system from Bambino Mio www.bambinomio.com is the leading cloth diaper in Europe and now is often chosen by parents as the best diaper solution in the United States.

    What are you doing for diapers?

    After 5 years in business, Wildflower Diapers is gearing up for some big changes!

    On June 1, we will be moving to a new shopping cart and new web host AND a new domain name! This has been a huge decision to make, but we've decided that we are ready to grow and change beyond diapers. We've always been much more than just diapers- but many people don't realize it. We want to be able to spread the message of cloth diapering and natural family living to a wider audience- and think a less restrictive name will help us do that. (Our biggest problem right now is that every.single.domain is already taken- it is very difficult to find a suitable, meaningful name with an available domain)

    We are also so pleased that we will now be operating the Bumkins Retail Outlet Store alongside our retail store, both on-line and in person. We have always worked closely with Bumkins (our warehouses and offices are less than a mile apart!), and we are looking forward to our continued collaboration! This joint venture has necessitated a need for more retail space, so our brick and mortar store will be moving in mid-June.

    With the transition to a new shopping cart, there may be glitches. We apologize in advance for this. We will be transferring over all active gift registries, store credits, and gift certificates- if yours gets missed, please let us know. We will fix it right away. We do expect some down time June 1-2- don't hesitate to give us a call during that time at 888-677-3228 to place orders or to get customer service.

    In preparation for this move, we have let our inventory get a bit low and will be clearing out even more leading up to our move. We should be fully re-stocked by July 1 at the very latest, likely sooner. Over the next few months, we are looking forward to adding more products and beefing up stock on our best-sellers. In the current cart, during the period of the sale, we are de-activating products as they go out of stock, just to make things a bit easier for shoppers. If you can't find something we normally have, it just means it's out of stock- we will be restocking.

    PLEASE make sure you are on our mailing list to get more announcements about the moves!

    I will be in touch with the mailing list and through our Facebook page- in the mean time, please take advantage of our sale and help us clear out some inventory so we don't have to move it all!

    Best wishes, Shannon and the Wildflower Diapers family
