As Thanksgiving approached last year, I decided it was time to seek out some Black Friday specials to buy gifts for Ezra’s birthday and Christmas. I love online shopping, but hate paying shipping, so I am always seeking online codes, sites with multiple items I need, and reasonable shipping rates. I started searching for specials and I came across a code for RG Natural Babies.
When I started browsing RG Natural Babies, I was immediately impressed by the variety of items available. I expected to find cloth diapers, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover adorable shoes, high quality toys, and feeding items. I had a difficult time choosing from the broad selection, but decided to buy some cloth diapers and a Melissa and Doug toy – they were already sale priced, plus I had a discount code!
Before purchasing online, I’d chatted with Michelle, one of the owners, through twitter. I enjoyed our conversations and loved the idea of supporting another WAHM mom. This is, frankly, one of my favorite “side effects” of cloth diapering – it connects you with other moms and you are often able to get to know them and support them in their small business endeavors.
Michelle and her husband, Bradley, were inspired to to open an online store after they started cloth diapering their daughter. They’d been using natural bath and body products, as well as organic food for quite some time, so ditching disposables felt like the next natural step for their family. Using cloth inspired them to start an online store that features quality, natural products for babies and moms.
In addition to reasonable prices and a great selection, RG Natural Babies also boasts excellent customer service After I made my purchase, Michelle kindly let me fix a mistake I’d made. She then followed up with me via twitter to see if I’d received my package and if I liked the products I’d selected. I am a huge fan of this type of personal service!
I love my cloth diaper purchases from RG Natural Babies, as well as the Melissa and Doug toy, baby leather soft soled shoes, and the simply adorable leather bowling Squeaky shoes! For purchasing on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, I also received samples of Rockin’ Green Soap (you know I love it!), Soap Nuts (these are fantastic too!), and a Thirsties hanging wet bag. This little $5 bag is fantastic for hanging on the bathroom door to transfer soiled, soggy diapers to the large laundry room wet bag.
