One of my personal goals lately has been to support more small-family owned businesses. Since I do a lot of our shopping online, I always love learning about new websites that carry brands I can get behind!

I was recently introduced to Thanks Mama, a family-owned cloth diapering and natural parenting store based in Boston, MA. They have values very similar to mine – they strive to raise their children in a natural and healthy environment. Their goal is to carry green and innovative products designed specifically for moms and their little ones. They even use a lot of what they carry on their website in their family – products like baby carriers, cloth diapers, toys, mom and baby care products, baby furniture and more.

Their website is easy to navigate and find what you’re looking for. Their categories are very self explanatory, and very comprehensive:

  • Cloth Diapers
  • Diaper Packages
  • Potty Training
  • Baby Care
  • Baby Gear
  • Mom & Maternity
  • Nursery
  • Toys
  • Organic

Not surprisingly, it took me a long time to decide what I wanted to review. I ended up selecting 3 items, and paying a little bit out of my pocket over my gift code since they had so much great stuff! And with free shipping on orders over $60, you can’t go wrong!

Here’s what I finally decided upon:

EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants

Since Kaylee is potty training, I had to get a pair of the EcoPosh Recycled Organic Training Pants in Love. These eco-friendly potty training pants are made from organic cotton, bamboo and recycled water bottles. They have two inner layers of absorbent bamboo and organic cotton. There is a hidden layer of waterproof TPU, which is biodegradable. While we haven’t received them yet, they looks super trim. And I like that they don’t have snaps since the only time we have problems with accidents now is at night time and when she’s too busy playing outside (and they’re always only pee accidents lately).

Imse Vimse Organic Cloth Menstrual Pads

 The Imse Vimse Organic Cloth Pads are made from 100% organic cotton. The night and regular pads are also reinforced with a thin layer of polyurethane laminated polyester to make them leak-proof. I selected the 3-pack of nighttime pads, which measure about 13.5” x 3.5” since that’s the part of my stash I needed to bulk up on a bit. I am really looking forward to trying these since I’m trying to switch to more organic fabrics!

Wahmies Fun Prints Wet Bags


I needed a new wet bag and wanted to try a new brand, so I went with the Wahmies Fun Prints wet bag since it had good reviews. I like the prints that are available and that there is an inner layer of coordinating PUL waterproof fabric. I chose the Regular size bag, which measures 13” x 15”. I mostly use wet bags for my mama cloth, but I also like using them for wet bathing suits and Kaylee’s little accidents. I’m hoping it does a better job and wicks less than my current wet bag!

Win a Moby Wrap!

I’m really looking forward to trying out all of these products! But another thing I’m excited about is that Thanks Mama is sponsoring a Moby Wrap ($44.95 value) in the Ultimate Babywearing Giveaway Event! I’ll be giving away several awesome baby carriers with a group of bloggers from the Green Moms Network, so be sure to come back between August 1-14 to enter!

In the meantime, be sure to connect with Thanks Mama on Facebook and Twitter.

Looks like a nice store, will have to add it to my list of online shops I like to check out. I would support small family run business any day over large corporations. I find they generally have the products I would prefer to use for my little one as well. I had a wrap similar to a moby wrap when my little one was first born and got so much use out of it. I have since passed it on to other family members and friends to use and gotten then turned on to baby wearing.

We have a moby and I loved it for our newborn. As my newborn got to be 6 months old though I preferred other carriers just because of the strechiness. But I loved my moby for small kiddos. Plus they have some super cute prints now that they didn’t have when I got mine

I love the moby for the newborn stage. As my daughter got older and heavier, it got uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time so I switched to the ergo. there is nothing like it for the tiny baby though.

I’ve ordered from thanksmama and have had wonderful customer service!

I do have a moby wrap and must say I love it for when my daughter was really small. I tried another (very cheap) carrier and felt like it didn’t support her very well at all. My moby is my go-to wrap for when I know I’ll need my hands free for doing other things. Unfortunately, though, I haven’t used it much this summer since it tends to be quite hot.

I’ve shopped at Thanks Mama before and you are right, they are a great store! I’m curious to learn more about this Moby Wrap — a friend of mine suggested them as a good carrier for little babes. My first child didn’t like our Ergo, so we never got into the baby wearing, but with #2 here (and little as well), we need to make some changes this time around ;)

I love the fact that is a USA business! And We have a Moby and loved it, but now we feel like our 18 lb baby just doesn’t fit right. Probably because I’m plus-sized (which I’m working on making that an invalid statement!), the wrap just isn’t comfy for us.

moby wraps are great for smaller babies I think, not so sure if I’d want to try it with a big baby.

I wish there were more brick and mortar stores like this where you could go see natural parenting products, talk with like-minded parents, and really get a good sense of community.

Moby Wrap not so much;-( I had one when my son was a newborn and it was way too much fabric for me. I am 4ft 11in and 98lbs so teeny tiny. This was just too long for me. It made it hard to wrap, Josh hated being in it. Just not for us.

Moby Wrap is the first one I laid on eyes on when I had my now 6yr old daughter, this was the first wrap I even heard of. I definitely did not like the Baby Bjorn which were the only things around. My mom is the one who told me about them.

I LOVE our Moby. It’s been the perfect carrier for our daughter while she’s been little. She’s starting to get close to 25 pounds though, so I think it’s time to move on to something else, and get it back out when baby #2 comes!

The Moby wrap was my first adventure into babywearing. My baby girl was a preemie and I loved being able to keep her close to me those first few months. She outgrew it around 4 months b/c she stopped wanting to face in, but it was still a great purchase. We’ve moved on to a Boba because she likes the back carry option.

Okay it’s about time I join in on the cloth pads thing. I HATE HATE HATE regular pads so I’ve always used tampons but now that I’ve had a child they just don’t fit properly and I still have major leakage. It’s so frustrating. I definiently need to suck it up and just get try them out. Also once we start potty training, in about a year, I’m definitely buying some Ecoposh trainers! I’ve heard nothing but greatness out of them.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Moby! It was my first wrap and still my favorite. Doesn’t get much better than being all snugly close to your newborn or to your older baby on a cold fall/winter day! So comfy…great for wrapping up before you hit the road and then easily popping baby in and out of the car. :)
