Has anyone ever wondered which celebrities use cloth diapers? Do any use Mama pads? It'd be perfectly easy for them with their nannies and housekeepers! Do they post here under a cryptic pseudonym? Wouldn't it be great if we had a famous advocate drumming up support for cloth diapering? I mean, all those tree-hugging actresses who support The Sierra Club, ANWR, PETA and the like must use cloth, right??

Ok Mamas, come clean! Is Catherine Zeta Jones posting here about her new baby girl?? :LOL

I wonder- I know Michael J Fox and John Travolta (can't remember their wives names...hmmm...) are co-sleeping, natural-parenting families... I saw this on the back of the Good Nights Book about family bed. I hope they are cd-ing, too.

I remember watching MTV and Brandi ( a singer) was showing her baby's bedroom off on the special about her pregnancy ( It was soooo bad cuz she had a baby nurse there beforehand and she gave her bad advice about bfing--said that there was no way a baby could get nipple confusion from taking a bottle!!: ) But her babe had a round crib too. WOnder what that is all about?

Yeah, I watched that whole Brandy baby series. That nurse lady pissed me off with that nipple confusion comment because my ds had nipple confusion when the nurses gave him a bottle in the hospital and he refused to BF. Anyways! The round cribs are called "Miss Liberty" cribs or something. I think they were named after Casey Cassum's daughter.

Back to diapers...It doesn't seem like celebs would even change diapers. Wouldn't the nannies do that?

I happen to know that some celebrities do use cloth diapers. I can specifically say that a few (3 that I know of) celebrity Mamas have a decent stash of Luke's Drawers diapers...oh, and one loves Heavenly Hiney diapers with lay-in soaker pockets....all embroidered with babe's name.

Wish I could tell you who I sold diapers too, but for privacy and confidentiality reasons it would be VERY wrong of me to do so.

I will say, though, that there are a few Mamas left in celebrity circles who are VERY attached to their children and have no trouble changing their own diapers.

It's not like it's personal gossip - I'm sure lots of people in LA and NYC know which celebs run out to the store to buy Pampers and what not! (They can't ALL have personal shoppers!)

Sorry!

I would feel very uncomfortable giving out personal information on ANYONE I did business with, celebrity or not, without their personal approval. I am hopeful that most Mamas in business feel the same way, and keep my information personal as well.

The closest I'll come to naming names is to say that one of my more "famous" customers has already been mentioned in this thread.


And I'll leave you to speculate which one.

Casey Kasem's wife is part owner of a round crib company, which is why she was promoting them. I remember reading that in my baby bargains book. I don't get it either. :

I think I read something somewhere about round cribs being less "limiting" to a baby's mind or something like that. It didn't make sense to me.

"cause it looks cool in a vast expanse of a bedroom (wouldn't fit in our house anywhere I think...) and you can only use their super expensive sheets and quilts, and can't use something you got on sale at kmart or land's end.

I just recently had my first celebrity order, and I was shocked. The biz # on my site is actually my cell phone, and I was driving in my car, when lo and behold the phone rings and I answer it to hear "Please hold for Ms.________" and then she gets on the phone! It's weird, though, this celeb is known as a knitter, so I thought it was strange that she was ordering knitted soakers from me instead of the pattern and doing it herself, LOL. But we had a nice chat about yarn and dyeing, and she told me that she absolutely loved my yarn

I know Kenny Loggins and his wife do the family bed (they have custom bed that's a king and queen together, I think), so I'll bet they CDed.

I think it would be so cool if one of these famous cloth mamas would pose with her stash. Hyena pictorial in People magazine! Or even in Mothering!

Vanna White just got divorced and doesn't have a teeny one anymore....unless she slipped one past everyone.

Julia Roberts is known as a knitter. Minnie Driver is known as a knitter, and so is Courtney Cox. Gwyneth Paltrow, and Angelina Jolie are, too. Oh, and Sandra Bullock....

I watch too much Entertainment Tonight.

I want to know really bad who these celebs are.

If I were a celebrity and used cloth, I'd promote it!
