LeAnn of Giggle Britches


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!

    We love our Happy Heiny pocket diapers we purchased from LeAnn. We switched to cloth when our second child was about 7 months old. He is now a year and a half and our Happy Heinys are still working great. Thanks LeAnn for introducing us to cloth!

    BTW don't count this for an entry....but I love working with you on our new products!
