****LOOK! New to Cloth? START HERE!! FAQ list***
Welcome to the Cloth Diapering Board!!
Just a note upfront, some of the words are clickable to other links. :) Scroll your mouse over the blue words and click to be directed to another link.
If you are considering cloth diapering or just want to know more about it, this is the place to look! We know all the information overload can be overwhelming at first, but if you give cloth a shot we think you'll find it easy and fun! If your question isn't answered here, please feel free to post to our board. Actually, post an introduction anyway so that we can get to know you! We are so glad you are here!!
Our board is a little bit different since we have a lot to do with buying and selling. So, before posting, please take a few moments to become familiar with our Community Guidelines. Outside of that, we also have two topics that we'd like to highlight:
* Anything concerning buying/selling or trading your own cloth diapers: A bi-weekly thread will be started by the mods where you can add your diapers for sell or trade , all info & updates will go here or in the actual FSOT (for sale or trade) sticky, nowhere else. We do this to keep the clutter down on the main board.
*WAHMs (work at home moms) can advertise by putting links to their store and/or products in their signatures. Links & info can also be added to the Huge cloth diaper list and the FSOT Sticky. No other spamming by WAHMs is allowed.
* All other fluffy pictures are allowed so long as there is no spamming (ie - no trying to sell a product in a regular thread on the board).
1) Sharing Links from Other Websites:
* If you are sharing a link from another website, please keep the topic of conversation within guidelines. Ie: "look how cute this is" or "help me stalk this". These links should not relate to something you yourself are selling (because that would be spamming). Questions about a store or products feedback are welcome (for example, "do y'all like XYZ diaper?"). Please do not bring outside drama from other message boards to this one.
Now, on to the fun stuff!!
