We had the good fortune of connecting with Jamie Frank and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jamie, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?

Sweet cuddly babies lovingly expand our hearts and families. With their grand entrance, many moms never consider the problems with using disposable diapers. Disposable diapers are one of the biggest drivers of environmental and household waste. Inflation has done us no favors; the cost of essential infant items continues to rise. Expensive disposables are a drag on a family’s budget, contribute to diaper rashes, and are the reason for one of mom’s biggest headaches – blowouts!

I am a mom who cloth diapered my two children over the course of four years. So, I know, firsthand that there is a better way! The solution lies in cloth diapering. I created Cloth Cuties to help moms – especially black and brown moms – learn about cloth diapering and the simplicity of this method. Cloth Cuties is a cloth diapering brand and education platform that helps moms simplify cloth diapering.

When I began cloth diapering, I was the only one of my friends to do it. It was lonely. In 2022, moms don’t have to cloth diaper alone. Through our social media channels and YouTube videos, Cloth Cuties is building a community that helps moms become aware of cloth diapering, and move from anxiety to a smooth diapering experience that saves them thousands of dollars through their diapering years!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am building a purpose-driven business that I truly love through Cloth Cuties!

Cloth Cuties is focused on helping moms learn about and build the confidence to try cloth diapering. Whether you’re an expecting mother or have a 9-month-old and you’re tired of diaper rashes and blowouts, we help moms wrap their minds around life in cloth! Cloth diapering has been around for generations, but like most things, it’s come back around with a fresh, modern take. Through our YouTube channel (@clothcutiesdiapers) and social media, we offer moms upbeat, funny videos that help them tackle cloth diapering like a pro. We talk about everything from how to build a cloth diaper stash, and the fear of handling poop, to tips for overcoming diapering challenges as your baby grows.

Cloth Cuties is a budding community that holds mom’s hand through the diapering process. Many moms consider cloth because they want to live and diaper more naturally. They might be eco-conscious, striving to do their part to help the environment. Other moms are frustrated with the insanely high prices of disposable diapers. Cloth diapers are a way to save families time and more than $2,000 through the diapering years.

When I’m not thinking of creative video and content ideas, I’m knee-deep in producing our own cloth diapering line! Cloth Cuties is manufacturing representative cloth diapers; moms will be able to see themselves and their baby on our diaper prints. I’m excited about what we’re doing and how it’s empowering our local community to learn about and embrace cloth diapers.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I am here for going anywhere black-owned! I love to support black-owned businesses and we have so many great ones in tha H! One of my favorite places is Taste Bar! I enjoy catching up over a tasty cocktail and great food.

I’m not much of a clubber anymore, but I am always up for brunch with the girls. I really enjoy the Sunday brunch vibes at Thirteen.

In the summer, I like to watch a movie in the park at Emancipation Park. I have to be sure to take sweet treats from Crumbville. Yummmm. Give me the Cookie Minaj, please!

Lastly, I haven’t done it yet, but I’m really looking forward to catching a comedy show at Phil & Derek’s.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to dedicate this shout-out to my inspiration – my two beautiful children and my biggest cheerleader – my husband, DeJuan.
