The Woodland Mamas

This is the first blog post for our new venture Woodland Babies, and we wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves. We will post new blogs periodically on topics related to cloth diapering, babywearing, earth-friendly products for the whole family, and other topics that seem relevant to raising children with an understanding of the impact we all have on this earth and on each other.

Woodland Babies is the vision of three mothers who wanted to help others learn more about earth-friendly products for their families. With a combined nine years of cloth diapering and babywearing experience, we are your expert source for cloth diapers and baby carriers. Through personal experience, the experience of our friends, various associations and educational programs, we collectively possess a wealth of knowledge about the many options available for cloth diapering, baby carriers and related accessories.  While there are other online retailers for both cloth diapers and baby carriers, there are very few places where you can see and touch these products, and talk with families who use them on a daily basis. Our goal is to spread our love of cloth diapers and babywearing to families through our online store and by providing in-home demonstrations either in a one-on-one or in a “party” setting where groups can experience these products.

Mama Mary is mother to two girls, 4 year old Bug and Toddler Bee.  She saw her first baby carrier at her wedding and eleven months later got to try it out with her own baby. She has been leading the non-profit educational group North Houston Baby Wearers for over three years, and is a dedicated babywearing educator.  She cloth diapered both babies from birth to potty learning and is one of many mothers who touts cloth diapers as helping making the transition at an early age (20 months and 15 months).

Mama Emily is mother to a three year old boy, Mushroom and toddler girl, Magnolia and step-mom to Twins Acorn and Flower. When she was pregnant with Mushroom, an old friend introduced her to both cloth diapering and babywearing.  Her frustration with the lack of local stores to shop for these items led to an idea of starting a local business where people could touch, feel and try products before purchasing. Mama Emily met Mama Mary at a North Houston Baby Wearers meeting when Mushroom was an infant.

Mama Lauren is mother to Baby Bear.  She learned about babywearing from her Bradley instructor and Doula, who also loaned her her first carrier, a Moby,  that she used with Baby Bear. She met Mama Mary and Mama Emily at a North Houston Baby Wearers meeting, and it was through these and other mamas in the group that she learned about cloth diapers.

The mission of the Woodland Mamas is to bring cloth diapers and baby carriers to moms, dads, and caregivers in an approachable way. We realize that every family is different and has to find the diapering system that works best for them.  Whether you plan to exclusively cloth diaper, use a combination of cloth and disposable, or plan to use disposable but are simply curious about cloth, we want to provide you with the information you need to make the decision for what is best for your family.  The same holds true for baby carriers.  Each type of carrier has different features and benefits.  We will help guide you through the various options, from ring slings to buckle carriers, to find what works best for you and your family.  Check out all our great products at http://www.woodlandbabies.com or contact us at info@woodlandbabies.com to book your in-home demonstration today. We look forward to helping you find the earth-friendly products that are right for your family.
