In the Beginning We Were Two

We wanted to make a positive difference in the world

We’re a typical family from America’s Midwest who loves to cloth diaper. After my son was born, my husband Steve and I discovered that there was a growing community called Attachment Parenting who was made up of families just like ours. This loose grouping of people believes in community, family and eco-consciousness and going back to a less invasive way of life. These families question and gravitate to going back to what is natural and good for babies, moms and families as well as what is good for communities and for the planet. It was a natural fit for us.

Cloth diapering is very special to me and my husband. We experienced what many cloth diapering parents feel--a new kind of joy and the pride in using cloth diapers with their child. We realized there was something unique and special about these diapers that went beyond caring for their son. They felt more connected to the planet. They felt empowered and felt that they, as just one family unit, was making a significant impact on the landfills. It became very real to them. The Joy we experienced from cloth diapers became a catalyst for the Coquí Baby vision:

To provide an affordable, high-quality diaper that will empower more people to choose cloth diapering as the preferred option for care.

We hope that with this company we can support not only a product we love but also the individual families who could share in this joy as well. Cloth diapering a small but growing movement that will only get bigger. Eco-consciousness is not a fad and is not going away.

We’re all connected. Coquí Baby was born in the corn and soybean fields of Central Illinois where the local economy is dependent on its farmers (and we are proud of them!) exporting their products globally. Likewise, we source the best products from all over the globe. We believe global trade grows the pie for everyone and can globally empower women and children by creating opportunities for a better life.

There is much that can be done, or un-done, in the world, and we think that our growing impact will change the cloth diaper industry. Come join our movement!
