Luckily, Jen from Orange Diaper Co. has decided to let me give one lucky DDL reader their own Custom Orange Diaper Co. Fitted!
About Orange Diaper Co:
After the birth of my second child in 2008 I started making cloth diapers for my new baby & for a few friends. My philosophy was simple: trim, well fitting, absorbent diapers made of plush organic materials. Would it be shallow to say that I only wanted adorable diapers on my adorable baby’s bottom? Maybe, but I made cute prints a priority too. I created a unique, one-size, closure-less fitted diaper intended to be used with a snappi or pins to provide a perfect, easy fit every time, from birth to toddler-hood. Word spread, and before long I was getting emails from mamas all over…Israel, Malaysia, Iceland…wondering how they could get their hands on some of these diapers. I decided then that I should probably come up with a name and my husband, ever the clever one in the family, suggested Scuttlebutts. For over two years, I created diapers under the name Scuttlebutts…often selling out within minutes of stocking. In 2010, the line expanded to include sized fitteds and bamboo terry squares, and I got a funny email from a Scuttlebutts loving mama. She told me that she’d moved to a new town, and they had a…umm, gentleman’s club named Scuttlebutts. Very soon after that, I got another email with a similar message! I started thinking that maybe I should change the name. One afternoon I sat down with my little guy, gave him a snack of orange slices, and tried to brainstorm new name ideas. I said to him, “Luke, what are we gonna call this thing?” He looked up at me, gave me a big dimpled grin, dumped his plate in his lap, and said “Ya’rnge!” Which is “orange,” in case you don’t speak toddler. So, Scuttlebutts became Orange Diaper Co. Although the name has changed, the commitment to quality materials, excellent craftsmanship, and adorable baby bottoms has not. When you buy an Orange diaper, you’re supporting a small family-owned business. Our diapers are made in Virginia, by our family, in our home workshop, using domestic and imported materials. We work with several suppliers, all family owned businesses operating out of the United States. We’ve been unbelievably lucky & we want to pay it forward, so a portion of the proceeds from every diaper we sell is donated to ForKids, a local charity working to break the cycle of homelessness & poverty for children.www.homesforkids.org
