All About Cloth Diapers began in March 2008. That is a decade of cloth diaper experience and knowledge that we can’t wait to share with you! My real life experience and common sense advice will make cloth diapers easier to understand, use and wash. It’s only as complicated as we let it be!
Meet Jenn Reinhardt!
Hi everyone! I am not a professional writer. My life is not one you will find in a glossy magazine. I am just a mom who wants to share what I know and love about cloth diapers. I want you to know that I am here to learn from you as well. I always like to say you never know where the next great piece of advice will come from. Once you’ve stuck around long enough you know I am always preaching about common sense. Anyone can give you advice and recommendations until the cows come home. I want you to do your own thorough research, use that common sense and think about how it all applies to you and your family before making a decision. I’m here to help you with that as much as I can.
I went to college for business management. The University at Albany in New York actually. But unlike Autumn I did not meet my sweetheart there. It would be many more years before that would happen! In 2008 my dream of owning my own business came true. When I was 27 years old (after a year of blood, sweat and tears) I purchased my very own business; Curves. I truly loved being able to go in every day and help people feel better about themselves. I loved to teach and share my knowledge. It made me feel good to know that I was making a difference in people’s lives.
At the encouragement (or should I say unrelenting insistence) of one of my sweet Curves members I joined eHarmony. That is how my husband Mike and I met. I suppose it was meant to be. We were married two years later, and a year after that had our beautiful little girl, Sophia.
While I was pregnant with Sophia, an acquaintance of mine mentioned that I should try cloth diapers. At first I was totally overwhelmed. I was so confused by all the information I had found that I almost gave up before I even started! The first time I googled cloth diapers, I was so confused I remember thinking “Oh, Hell NO! But once I was able to see a cloth diaper in person, I knew that I could do it. I have been in love with fluff ever since!
After a few years of trying for another baby, we welcomed our sweet, adorable and oh so good-natured (but not a good sleeper) daughter Norah to our family. She is now happily wearing some of her sister’s cloth diapers and a few new ones of her own.
It hasn’t always been easy. We have had our share of laundry problems and skin sensitivity issues. But I sincerely believe that cloth diapers are the best thing for my baby and I want to help spread my love of cloth diapers one fluffy tush at a time!

Meet Autumn Beck!
In 1998, at the ripe age of 20 Autumn married her college sweetheart. They both became Christians in 2000 and were baptized together on July 5th. Michael graduated from chiropractic school in 2002 and immediately opened a practice in Autumn’s hometown. After 3 children and 4 years of traffic they decided city life was not what they wanted for our family. They sold the practice and moved to a small town just north of San Antonio. Two children later life was feeling very cozy. And then the Lord called Michael into full time ministry. In August 2012, they moved to California and Michael began attending The Master’s Seminary. Their 6th child was born in January 2013, in the most perfect way! Well, having Michael there would have made it more perfect but Autumn’s not complaining! (read Finley’s birth story)
Having two homes, 6 children, homeschooling and supporting her husband as he endures the pressures of seminary and running a business left Autumn little time to devote to All About Cloth Diapers! After nine months of helping Autumn run the blog…Jenn became the new owner!
