In the beginning...


When my oldest son was about 5 months old, he developed a rash.  A really, really, bad rash.  I slathered all of the zinc-oxide creams I could find but nothing seemed to help.  As a first-time mom, I couldn't bear to see my son in pain, it was down-right intolerable.  I decided to do some research and found out that what we think is diaper rash is actually irritation caused by the chemicals found in disposable diapers, so I decided to give cloth a try.  Because of the lack of natural baby stores near my hometown, I didn’t have access to cloth diapers.   My son was in such pain, I didn’t want to order online and wait for delivery, I needed to find a solution immediately.  So we packed the baby and drove 60 miles to the nearest store that sold natural baby products.  Within two days of using cloth exclusively, his rash cleared up.  I invested in some more inserts and little covers.  His bum was so cute-and I was hooked!  Cloth diapering was so much fun and much easier than I had originally thought!  Not to mention, I saved a ton of money.  With my second baby, I knew right away that cloth was the way for us.  What I didn't anticipate was how much the cloth diaper industry had grown, and how many choices were out there for moms who love to cloth diaper.  Though I had experience with cloth, I didn't know where to start; there were just too many choices, and still no local store.  I founded GreenPath Baby as a way to simplify cloth diapering by bringing it closer to the Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens community.  We believe that every mom who is interested in cloth diapering should be able to stop by and personally interact with our products.  We are confident that cloth diapering is the best decision for your baby, the environment and your wallet!  We look forward to meeting you and helping to guide your path into the wonderful, fun, and eco-friendly world of cloth diapering.
