In fact, over 18 billion disposable diapers end up in landfills every year. 18 billion!!!

I’d love to tell you more about what makes Little Bee Creations a wonderful company to support, and if you’re curious, keep on reading!

Products and Services
Regardless of the product you order from Little Bee Creations, it will be handmade just for you once your order is received.
Cloth diapers are an incredibly environmentally-friendly and sustainable choice to make with a baby at home. While disposable diapers may seem more convenient at first glance, they can be exponentially more expensive than cloth diapers. A family who potty trains a child by the age of three can spend between $2400 – $3000 on diapers alone! Cloth diapers require a larger investment upfront but ultimately cost $750 per child, taking into consideration the multiple sizes you’ll need as they grow. Little Bee cloth diaper covers are 100% flannel on the outside and wipe-off PUL on the inside for easy cleanup. Snaps make diaper changes quick and easy, and elastic legs and waist make sure they fit comfortably and snugly. With proper care, they can last you years.
More Than Just Diapers!
Little Bee Creations also makes menstrual pads for women who are looking for a chemical-free alternative to disposable pads and tampons. Their pads snap under the panty to stay in place, and the fabric that comes in contact with your skin is 100% cotton flannel. They come in a variety of sizes and with different center panel materials to accommodate lighter and heavier flows.
The care and cleaning of reusable diapers and pads can seem daunting, but they are actually incredibly easy to care for! Little Bee products should be soaked in cold water with ½ cup of white vinegar. Then, wash them in hot water on the largest load size, with half the normal amount of soap, and use an extra rinse cycle. Hang them dry for best results, and they can last you for years to come!
In addition to diapers and pads, Little Bee Creations also makes flannel diaper liners for an extra layer of absorbency, flannel washcloths and wipes, flannel burp cloths, and nursing pads.
Who said reusable diapers and pads have to be boring? Little Bee Creations makes their products with a variety of colorful, charismatic flannels. When you order your products, you’ll also get to choose the flannel design for them, making them totally customizable.
Another awesome thing about Little Bee Creations? They’re partnered with Worldwide Allies for Menstrual Supplies, and they provide cloth menstrual supplies for refugees across the world, making sure all women have access to quality products.
