Cloth Diapering

Fort Wayne Cloth Diapers is an online community for anyone wishing to cloth diaper, currently cloth diapering, wanting to learn more about cloth, or wanting to sell their stash locally. Questions, advice, and conversations about cloth diapers are all welcome here.


 

Share the Love

Share the Love is a national cloth diaper bank that works to achieve one goal: eliminate diaper need and poverty in our local communities.

Through education, resources and support, Share the Love does more than just distribute diapers. It teaches people about the underlying effects of poverty such as diaper need. It enables more parents to provide their babies with clean diapers. It allows a family to buy better meals, pay a bill and save for the future. But most importantly, Share the Love provides hope to those who need a caring, helping hand.
