At The Changing Table we are more than a baby store! We are a community resource for natural parenting. We provide beautiful, functional alternatives to mainstream parenting practices that save money and lessen your child’s impact on the environment.
This is our story…
In the fall of 2008, Kristina and I sat in the office of a local accounting firm and dreamed of the day when we could make simple, natural, healthy choices for our two babies that were to be born the following summer. Like all moms, we wanted the best for our children and one of the easiest decisions was to cloth diaper. My oldest child experienced a reaction to the chemicals found in disposable diapers, so I knew reusable cloth diapers were the best option to protect the next baby’s little skin and immune system. Kristina wanted to make a smaller footprint and leave this earth a little better for her son. Since disposable diapers are the third largest consumer item in landfills, using reusable diapers was also an easy choice for her. As we planned together, each accumulating “diaper stashes”, we quickly realized how overwhelming the choices can be.
- As our research expanded, and our frustration with the lack of local resources grew, our passion for educating about cloth diapers also increased day by day. The research into personal diapering choices planted a seed that quickly grew into the birth of a new cloth diaper store, The Changing Table.
