Cloth Diapering Celebrities
Hey everyone! Ariel here this week to bring you all you ever wanted to know about your favourite celebrity families and their poop-catching decisions for their little ones.
Did you know that a surprising number of celebrity parents have chosen to cloth diaper in recent years?
Cloth Diapering Celebrities
Let’s dig in to just a few of the famous faces who have put a voice to the cloth diapering initiative, and are going reusable for their little ones!
Influencer and Interior Designer Jillian Harris
You may know Jillian as a former Bachelorette, or as the Interior Designer for the hit T.V. Show Love it or List it, but first and foremost she is Mama to her littles Leo and Annie.
While pregnant with little Annie, Jillian expressed her desire to try cloth diapering on Instagram, and we reached out to make sure that she started her journey with the best (and easiest) system possible!

Annie’s first time in a cloth diaper featured the BEAUTIFUL Light Pink Charcoal Cloth Diaper and she rocked it! Some slight fit adjustments, and this mama-daughter duo was good to go. Jillian mentioned in her stories that what she loves most about her Lil Helper Cloth Diapers is that they are eco-friendly and really easy to use.
Actress Alyssa Milano
Shortly before her son, Milo, was born, Alyssa shouted her decision to use cloth diapers from the rooftops (J.K. It was Twitter, which is basically the same thing) by tweeting out the following;
This was monumental as it brought the idea of cloth diapering to the forefront of her followers minds. If Alyssa Milano is doing it, it must be cool. And spoiler alert… it’s super cool!
Not only are you going to be able to make it rain money because of all your savings, you’re drastically reducing the waste that your family sends to the landfills. Everyone wins!
Artist Kat Von D
She is known for her unique look and insanely talented tattooing, but she is also about to take on one of the biggest roles of her life; mommy, with her husband Rafael Reyes.
Kat Von D definitely does not shy away from speaking her mind and being open about her life decisions, so I was SUPER excited when I saw that her and her husband decided to exclusively use cloth diapers for their little bundle!
“Today we took the best cloth diaper class from @earthbabyboutique! Loved learning everything about cloth diapering and by the looks of it, @prayers is gonna be the cloth diaper wiz in this household! #clothdiapers”
Let’s face it, we have ALL thought about trying our cloth diapers on our animals! (No? Just me then? Awkward.) As she is still currently pregnant with their first born, they need to practice somehow, and their cat seems totally cool with their decision to go with cloth diapering.
I can’t wait to see photos of their baby with that adorable fluff butt.
Singer Dave Matthews
Perhaps one of the most outspoken celebrities on the matter, Dave Matthews exclusively used cloth diapers for his son August.
At a Live Earth press conference in the summer of 2007, he was quoted as saying; “We use cloth diapers for our new baby because I think diapers might be the number three piece of garbage [in terms of environmental damage].”
His passion for the environment when making the decision to use cloth diapers leads us directly into the following question…
Why Cloth Diaper?
You might be wondering why so many celebrities are choosing to cloth diaper.
A huge incentive for the average parent to going with reusable is that it drastically reduces the cost of diapering your children from birth until they are potty trained. On average, you spend about 800$ PER YEAR on disposable diapers. However, a one-time 500$ investment in cloth diapering will carry you through to potty training, and carry over if you have multiple children.
But celebrities must be able to afford diapers, right?
The biggest advantage being considered when making the decision to go the cloth diapering route are the enormous environmental benefits.
When I think about the fact that a disposable diaper will sit in the landfill for up to 500 years before it begins to breakdown, I feel a little sick inside. It makes me even happier that my family chose to check out cloth diapering! (And that much happier that it’s becoming more mainstream!)
