Hi! My name is LeAnn, and I am the owner of Giggle Britches, an online cloth diapering store. I run Giggle Britches from my home located in the St. Louis Metro-East area. My husband and I have been married for almost 6 years now and have two beautiful daughters. We are expecting our third child in November 2010.
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and find that I am always looking for more efficient and cost effective approaches to life's everyday situations. Therefore, shortly after we found out we were expecting our second child, I began researching cloth diapers. My oldest constantly "blew-out" of disposables as a young infant, had horrible diaper rashes, and the amount of money I had spent on diapers that were thrown away made me cringe. Cloth diapers seemed like the logical solution. I started with prefolds, covers, and a few pockets and have never looked back. I even converted a couple friends into cloth diaper users!
My little family has moved a couple times in the past few years. Each time, we were fortunate to live in a town with a local cloth diaper shop. Our last move landed us in Troy, IL and it didn't take long for me to realize a need for a cloth diapering and natural parenting store in the St. Louis Metro-East area. I started Giggle Britches this past summer in the hopes to bring products, education, and support for parents in the Metro-East area seeking a more natural way of parenting. The main focus is selling a variety of cloth diapers and to provide customers with the opportunity to see, touch, and compare cloth diapers in person before they purchase. I host bi-monthly workshops and provide one-on-one consultations to further this goal.
My shop carries bumGenius, FuzziBunz, Happy Heinys, Bottombumpers, SoftBums, GroVia, Thirsties, Tiny Tush, and more!
