A few months ago, I was dipe searching on Craigslist, and came across an ad for Bippy Diapers. The owner would be hosting a get-together so local mamas could come see, touch, and feel various cloth diapers in person. I immediately emailed her to RSVP. I was beyond excited--I now had the option to purchase my diapers locally!
So, the following weekend, I left the boys with Daddy and went to meet up with Lora from Bippy. Once I got there and we introduced ourselves, she began pulling out different cloth diapers and explaining the differences in the brands as well as what she likes/dislikes about them. Our conversation about diapers soon became dappled by conversations about our lives. Besides realizing the fact that Devin's diapers were way more bulky than necessary (gotta love K*W*iis lol), I learned something else... "Hey, I like this chick!" So, at the end of that day, not only had I found a local retailer, but I also found a friend (<3 ya Lora!).
A little about the Babe behind Bippy:
"I am a 29 year old mother of two originally from St. Louis, Mo and transplanted to Sarasota, FL in 2006. After my husband and I moved to Florida, we decided to try to get pregnant. Low and behold we now have a beautiful daughter Olivia. After many trials and tribulations of raising a newborn I became frustrated with the prices of diapers and baby things. I then saw an advertisement for gdiapers and wondered what they were all about. I ordered a few, tried them and fell in love with the initial cloth diaper experience but was afraid to go "all the way" with cloth.
After my daughter turned a year, my husband and I found out we were pregnant with number 2. My first thought was 2 in diapers, omg my poor wallet. I then took the plunge and started cloth diapering full time so I could save money when the second one came.
When Lucas came in March of 2010, I really started to enjoy the cloth experience and staying home with my children. With no local vendors, I saw an opportunity to spread my love of cloth and try to stay at home with my wonderful two children. Thus Bippy Diapers was born. While I am achieving my first goal, I am still working toward the second. I throughly enjoy cloth diapering my babies and providing for them a greener world. I hope that I can Save the World one Bum at a time, starting with my two little baby bums!! "
I now buy all my diapers from her! She is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. If there's something your looking for, and her store doesn't carry it, shoot her an email--maybe she can order it for you!
