Ragababe diapers have established their place in the cloth community and chances are you have heard of them but may not have been able to buy them due to their small production numbers and HUGE demand. Ragababe launched in 2009 and quickly became a cult favorite thanks to their design and rock themed style. More about Ragababe from their website:
“I am a mother of three children, Isabelle, our seven year old, Asaiah, our four year old, and our latest arrival as of August 14th, Selah. My husband, Andy, and I are blessed with bright, healthy children, but both of the first two have extreme food intolerance and sensitivities. The first couple years of Isabelle’s life were spent researching and experimenting with foods that she could tolerate. Our second child proved no different. At least I knew his diet!
But what I didn’t know, was the solution to the sores on their bottoms. That led me to try cloth diapering.
I tried several leading brands of cloth diapers, which brought about some improvement to the sores. What bothered me the most was the performance of many of the diapers. Some had very limited absorbency and would leak after an hour or two. (Too many wet sheets and car seats.) Some would retain odor after washing and required repeated ‘stripping’. Others would look ‘ratty’ after only a few washings– and the drying time (up to two hours) was way too long. And their looks and fit left something to be desired. There had to be a better diaper.
That pursuit has changed my life. With the help of my husband, mother and father (Carol and Dave Ketelsen), the process began that would mean thousands of hours of research and development, design and testing. Over 300 prototypes were created and meticulously evaluated. Hundreds of design and fabric changes. A lot of tears shed. A lot of prayers answered. Travels around the country. New materials developed for RagaBabe never used in diapers. Problems… and problems solved.
Without leaning on faith in an incredible God, we all might have given up long ago. But with every roadblock, came a breakthrough — and a better diaper. We are so excited to offer three amazing diapers, our RagaBabe ‘Easy’ All-In-One, RagaBabe Organic ‘2-Step’ and Snapless Organic ‘2-Step (the later two — Cover with snap-in Insert).
All designed to make you “love cloth diapers!”
Today, thousands of diapers later from the first pro-type, and growing our new production facility, we still continue the quest for an even better diaper — learning day by day. A thank you to the thousands of users of RagaBabes that are now a part of our family. Many of you we’ve gotten to know personally and we appreciate your interaction with us on the web.” Read more…
