Our Mission

The Real Diaper Association is a collective non-profit organization in which parents and small businesses take the lead in creating a cultural shift to increase the use of simple, reusable cloth diapers. We connect current cloth diapering parents to the long history of cloth diapering. Cloth diapers are real diapers. The Association organizes local advocates and activists for cloth diapers through a member-supported resource center which plans campaigns, trains organizers, distributes educational information, supports local groups, and connects users to the Cloth Diaper industry. Local Real Diaper Circles reach users face-to-face with knowledge and tools to make cloth diapering accessible and acceptable to parents, who have the power to change the world one baby at a time.


Why Give Help

RDA Cloth Diaper User Guide

Thanks to all of you experienced parents who helped us put together this Cloth Diaper User Guide to help parents use reusable cloth diapers in any situation! We have compiled printable tipsheets and background information on topics such as

In the last half century, parents have looked for support from experts, from books, from the internet. Sources closer to home have been neglected. Parents, grandparents, friends, and neighbors have been bypassed. Knowledge of how to use cloth diapers has been lost to many people.

In the last two decades, there has been a slow revival of cloth diapering, particularly since the advent of the internet. At the Real Diaper Association, we think those sources closer to home still have the best support to offer. We want to see people face-to-face, talking about what works for them and why. We want to revive cloth diapers by encouraging experienced parents to be the local diapering experts.
