Margarita began sewing cloth diapers for her newborn baby in 2004. By 2005, she had a business in her basement,  Swaddlebees.

Today, Swaddlebees and Blueberry Diapers, McClure’s designer line of premier cloth diapers are favorites of style conscious moms around the world.

On the show we talk about what kinds of women are using cloth diapers, why they choose them, and the benefits of cloth diapering.

Margarita also shares which diapers are her most popular among moms in different parts of the world and secrets to making cloth diapers work for your situation and your baby.

Swaddlebees and Blueberry Diapers…

· Contain no bleach, no chlorine and no pesticides on the cotton fibers.

· Use only organic cotton to insure 100% good health and safety for America’s babies.

· Prints use water-based ink, instead of oil-based. The water used is recycled, treated and cleaned before pumping it back into the sewer system.

· Lamination is a non-solvent based laminate, which does not produce toxic fumes instead of solvent-based urethane laminate, which is what 95% of what most cloth diaper manufacturers use.

· All fabrics (except for the Minky diaper’s outer shell), is made in the US. This ensures us that the fabric meets minimum standards for safety and is free from contaminants.

· Is the only company that integrates hemp & organic cotton in the absorbent pads for our diapers, which makes them one of the most absorbent diapers in our industry.

· Uses all biodegradable packaging on our products.
