In the past, CBB readers have asked us to do a post on celebrities who cloth diaper their children. With a recent boom in popularity and concerns for the environment, more celebrities are taking notice. Instead of the fold-and-pin cloth diapers many often imagine, the ‘new’ cloth diapers are pocket diapers, which include snaps or Velcro and allow for absorbency customization and come in a plethora of colors and print choices.
The following celebrities cloth diaper their children —
- Singer Dave Matthews — son August Oliver, 3 weeks. Dave has also spoken out on the issue.
- Actors Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard — daughter Ramona, 9 months — uncle Jake Gyllenhaal has spoken about his niece’s diapers.
- CSI: NY actress Anna Belknap cloth diapers her daughter, 6 months.
- Singer and actress couple Brad and Kimberly Williams-Paisley cloth diaper their son William Huckleberry, 4 months.
- Numb3rs actress Diane Farr cloth diapers her sonBeckett Mancuso, 4 months.
- Actress Mariska Hargitay appeared in a Got Milk? ad with August Miklos Friedrich, now 1, when he was 6 months old — and he wore cloth (perhaps pinned over a ‘sposie).
- Actors Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger — Matilda Rose, 20 months. Matilda has been photographed with her diaper showing.
- Actor and jewelry designer couple Tobey Maguire, and Jennifer Meyer – Ruby Sweetheart, 8 months. Ruby has also been photographed in her Seventh Generation diaper.
- Actress Julie Bowen spoke while pregnant about her plans to use them on son Oliver, now 3 months.
- Musicians Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk — sons Rowan, 3, and Lucca Jon, 2. Chantal spoke in her interview with us about why she prefers Seventh Generation.
