Interview with Baby Babu: From Disposables to Cloth

Who Are They? Baby Babu was founded in Melbourne, Florida, by the parents of twin boys. Baby Babu’s goals are to provide high quality, sustainable and affordable diapering solutions and related products to parents worldwide. In addition to our core goals, Baby Babu will strive to provide the highest degree of customer service and the highest quality products available.

This is awesome, it's not too often that you see a husband and wife team up for a Cloth Diapering venture...especially when they did not cloth diaper their children...I know what you are thinking....OH MY....don't have a heart attack...Check out this interview I did with them...

Did you always know that you wanted to Cloth Diaper your Children? How did you first get involved in Cloth Diapering or Learn about it? Actually, our children are now out of diapers, but they were twins and at the time we used disposable diapers.  After they grew out of diapers, we felt really guilty for all the diapers we went through.  That and our past business experience led us to this business of selling cloth and biodegradable, earth friendly diapers.

What was the first diaper you ever purchased? Unfortunately we used disposables for our twins:(

How did you come up with the design of the diaper if you didn't have any experience in knowing what you liked in a cloth diaper? We researched multiple cloth diapers and gave them to friends with babies to try and then decided what we liked best and least...then put that all together for our line.

Your Favorite Cloth Diaper? Baby Babu diapers of course! Grovia has some nice diapers too.

Essential (Must-Have) Cloth Diaper Accessory? If you ask my wife, I think it would have to be a good diaper or wet bag.  For an active family, going anywhere without an extra diaper or place to put a used one, you're in trouble.

How did you come up with the name Baby Babu for your store/brand? We came up with the name Baby Babu after some brainstorming and help from our web designer.

What made you want to start your own store/business? We have run multiple businesses in the past, so this was just our next startup.

Future goals for Baby Babu? We hope to promote Baby Babu as a primary source for affordable and eco-friendly diapering products.  Watch out for some great and unique eco-friendly products coming soon too!

Most unique feature of Baby Babu? I think a unique feature of Baby Babu is our past business experience.  We are compulsive in regards to our product quality and providing exemplary customer service to our customers.

What do you like to do in your spare time (not cloth diaper related)?
We are parents to two twin boys that keep us smiling all day long.  They obviously keep us very busy, but in our spare time our family loves the beach and surfing.  Our boys are playing just about every sport right now too, so that takes up a lot of time too! 

Baby Babu will be helping to sponsor my Mother's Day Cloth Diaper Event in the beginning of May! Please bear with them as their site is being update daily! They have some super cute diaper prints, and names and lot of inexpensive options! For example the names of the diapers posted above are Can't Find Me, SLOW DOWN and This Guy's Bananna's! How Cute!

  4. I don't have any kids yet, but I had always wondered about using cloth diapers. It seems like it could be kind of messy, but I know only imagine how much money you would save this way.

    They definitely have some adorable prints. I absolutely love the cute turtle :)

  5. I wish they had these cool things when my kids were little :)

  6. Thanks for sharing a new CD company. I'll have to check them out. Although I do have some favorites in my stash, there's always room for more CD.

  7. I wished they had these when my babies were little.

  11. Thank you for sharing the interview -- I've just recently heard about this company in the last week and have been trying to learn a little more about them. With Baby #2 on the way, I'm always looking to learn about new diapers on the market.
