How can I afford to buy cloth diapers?

The Diaper Bank of the Ozarks will provide a cloth diaper loan to qualified families.  We will teach you how to add more inexpensive cloth diapers to your supply and how to convert used T-shirts into additional cloth diapers at no cost at all.

Will cloth diapers save me money?

Start using cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers and you will save over $2,500 (over $1,000 a year), while your baby is wearing diapers.

How do I use and take care of cloth diapers?

Contact the Diaper Bank of the Ozarks for times and locations of classes.  Current locations include the Dream Center (829 W. Atlantic), Pregnancy Care Center in Springfield and Republic Pregnancy Resource Center.  Individual classes can be scheduled also. More locations will be added soon. A monthly cloth diaper moms group is available where you can meet cloth diaper experts and other moms using cloth. Find out if this option could work for your family. Eliminate purchasing diapers every month. Those extra dollars will help with groceries, rent, and medical expenses.

Contact Amanda at or call Jill at (417) 848-5049 for more information.
