Switching to cloth diapers seems like an easy way to do your part for the environment—until you start shopping to actually buy some. Spend a couple minutes researching online, and you’ll find yourself overwhelmed by options (and acronyms) like AIOs, OCV and DSQ—leaving you feeling like you need a PhD in P-O-O-P to decipher. If you’re thinking you better get the bottom of how these babies work in person before you dole out for Mother Earth, you’re in luck. Skip those ubiquitous, low-quality Gerber refolds that Grandma used and check out these local shops that stock the newest in naps for your babe.

Target
As of this spring, you can now find top-of-the-line modern cloth diapers at your local Target store. You’ll find Charlie Banana pocket diapers right next to the onesies. Pocket diapers have an insert that comes out for easy washing and drying, but once you put the insert back in, using them is as easy as snapping on, much like a disposable—no origami  folding required.

Baby Love Consignment and Gift Boutique
In addition to used diapers on consignment, Baby Love carries several brands of brand-new cloth diapers, including Baby Kicks pocket diapers, Thirsties fitteds and covers, and Charlie Banana. You can also find cloth diapering accessories here like wet bags, cloth wipes and diaper cream that won’t ruin your reusable stash.

New Baby Products
New Baby Products has one of the widest in-person selections of cloth diapers you’ll find in Atlanta. Brands include Bambino Mio, Sweet Pea, Blueberry, GroVia and Bum Genius. If you want to take a look at different types of diapers, from prefolds to all-in-ones, New Baby Products is the place to go. You can pick up accessories here as well and the friendly staff is always willing to share their expert advice and help you make a selection.

Whole Foods 
Like Target, Whole Foods changes its baby inventory regularly, but they sometimes carry top-quality cloth diapers like Fuzzi Bunz and GroVia. Call your local store first to see if they’ve got anything in stock.

Buy Buy Baby
Both Buy Buy Baby locations are about 30 minutes from Atlanta, but if you’re willing to make the trek to Alpharetta or Snellville, you’ll find several top brands of cloth diapers there, including Bumkins and Bum Genius.
