“My name is Donna Smith and I’m a proud cloth diapering mama. I founded Black Women Do Cloth Diaper was because I was disheartened by the lack of Black babies (and other babies of color) and mamas used in cloth diaper marketing.”
This was the quote that started it all.. the humble beginning that is BLACK WOMEN DO CLOTH DIAPER .
Donna Wallace-Smith is the Founder of Black Women Do Cloth Diaper, an advocacy group focused on representation of Black parents and children in the cloth diapering world .
This mother of 4 is a veteran of the U.S. NAVY and military spouse . Cloth diapering her youngest child opened her eyes to the fact that representation was lacking in the natural parenting world . She realized something had to change, and she decided to take action.
Nearly 3 years ago Black Women Do Cloth Diaper (also known as BWDCD) came into being . Donna has worked with businesses, retailers, and cloth diaper brand owners to diversify their advertisement and has helped hundreds of parents to start their cloth diaper journey.
