Here at Pinstripes and Polkadots we pride ourselves on being your best resource and premier store for cloth diapering, laundry care, and baby accessories. I know how important and overwhelming it can be to choose the right diaper, detergent or carrier for your needs and that’s why we created and maintain these online resources for you so you get the same level of service I provide my customers in my local store.

This is real expert advice from me - a real mom. While these resources are pretty comprehensive I know sometimes you just need to talk to someone or have a specific question, so feel free to post questions to my Facebook page or send me an email at info@pinstripesandpolkadots.com.

At the capstone of my store is my commitment to educating every caregiver here in Central Illinois and beyond to make babywearing and cloth diapering a wonderful, loving experience. I hope that love exudes in every package that I ship, class that I teach and product that I offer.
