Do You Know Where I Can Purchase Cloth Diapers and Glass Baby Bottles?

Do you know where I can purchase cloth diapers and glass baby bottles?

New parents are becoming more concerned about the products that come into contact with their babies and also about the effect on the environment of disposable baby products. Glass baby bottles and cotton diapers are both free of plastics and don’t add to the overfilling of landfills.

By searching online and making a few phone calls, we found that Target carries cotton gauze-weave diapers and the plastic pants to cover them. Both Target and Wal-Mart sell glass baby bottles. The glass bottles and diapers are available in-store as well as from the company Web sites. We were surprised to discover that Sears and Kmart sell neither.
