It was only a few short months ago that we checked in with our friends in Maine, Brian and Elsa, for the first time. They were preparing to become parents for the first time! And then there he was. Otis emerged a bit earlier than expected, but he was healthy and oh-so-welcome to the world. Otis’ dad, Brian, took the time to kindly catch us up on life with a new baby.

And if you use our cloth inserts, your baby has benefited from the breathability, absorbency and the antibacterial properties of one of the earth’s most sustainable fibers. Next week, we’ll be joining the Hemp History Week campaign, the national grassroots education campaign designed to amplify support for hemp farming in the U.S.
