About the Instructor

Madelaine Martin has been in the cloth diaper industry for 6 years, ever since she was given a pre-loved stash after her son was born. After a lot of trial, error, and listening to others, Madelaine paved the path for other families to utilize cloth diapers without the feeling of overwhelm. Madelaine has run a diaper service, Cheeky Things, and a non-profit, Permanent Diaper Relief, which have both required her to do extensive research on using & caring for cloth diapers.
