Our Company

       Kashmir Baby was started in 2012 by founder Melissa Gerke-Wojtanowski. She is a mother of three and also a nurse. When her first child was born, she was disappointed using disposable diapers. Her sons delicate newborn skin had frequent diaper rashes, constant trips to the store were hard with a newborn for diapers, she became increasingly concerned about the harmful chemicals they contained, and their environmental harm. She stated "It was very expensive using disposables and they never seemed to fit right". "I was scared cloth would be so much more work; but that simply wasn't true! "The truth is cloth diapers eliminated all of my problems and more~ like living with the smell of dirty diapers and the nasty diaper pail along with constantly dumping the trash." "And, best of all my baby was adorable, safe, and comfy in them!"

  With sewing as a hobby from childhood, she started sewing diapers for her son and embroidering cute designs on them for fun~ cars, trucks, and airplanes. As time went on, she created an easy closure system for soiled diapers along with the first pocket insert that could be used for both cloth diapering and potty training. Her newest innovative product Cooling Therapy Breastpads came this past May ~a natural way to provide cold soothing relief for sore, cracked nipples.

When asked how Melissa hopes her business will impact the lives of others she stated "to make people's lives easier, provide eco-friendly options that are chemical free, and to make products that are safe so families can feel good about using them! " "We absolutely love what we do! We commit to only using eco-friendly materials to make our products!"

Kashmir Baby started as a small business online in 2012 with great success and has been growing ever since!
