The Buttons Family
Buttons cloth diapers were born at home. As a husband and wife team, we designed our diapers to be easy to use and affordable for everyone - the way it should be. We believe in keeping our lives simple, even when it comes to diapering. Our company began in Northwest Washington, but has moved to northern Idaho, where our family enjoys hiking, biking, and playing in the sunshine and snow! We run our business out of our barn that we renovated into our offices - we call it the "Buttons Barn"! Our diapers are CPSIA certified, which means they are safe for your baby and good for the environment. Our products are responsibly made in China. When you purchase Buttons Diapers, you are supporting a family business. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Thank you! ~Scott & Amy
Meet the Team
Amy (Favorite Buttons print: Flourish)
In chronological order, Buttons was my second "baby". We started designing and manufacturing "fluff" after our oldest turned a year old, in 2012. I love creating new products and planning all of the seasonal prints, but most of all I enjoy the blessing of the positive and supportive global Buttons community. As much as I love Buttons, my real passion is for my faith and family: my amazing husband and 4 incredible kids. I have a degree in teaching and have discovered that I love home schooling my kids. Some things I enjoy with my family are board games, bike rides, hikes, and candle-light dinners at home.
Scott (Favorite Buttons print: Adventure)
I like to tell people that I left my aerospace engineering career to be a diaper salesman. Either that, or I tell them that I work in a barn and talk with women about diapers all day. It's true and it makes people smile or laugh, which is something I love doing. I love my job. I get to make spreadsheets and keep track of data - basically I'm the numbers/manufacturing/inventory management guy. I love adventure, and my current favorite hobby is paramotoring.
Kaela, Social Media Manager (Favorite Buttons Print: Wildwood)
I knew when I found out I was first pregnant that I wanted to cloth diaper. What I didn’t know then is just how passionate I’d become about them in a short 3 year time span. I married my husband after we fell in love over conversations of baseball and football and now have two children. In addition to my cloth diaper passion, I love photography, crafting and cooking, and just watching my family grow. I have a BS in business but a heart for teaching. Picking one favorite Buttons print is so hard but if I had to just choose one it’d be wildwood (but afternoon tea and maverick are close seconds!).
Beck, Brand Rep Coordinator (Favorite Buttons Prints: Sherwood, Maverick, Swell)
Cloth diapering has been an amazing journey that really added to our love for keeping our environment healthy. Living on a farm with my husband and 4 children, being eco friendly is very important to us. Making small changes can really make large impacts. I love to craft just about anything, enjoy photography, being outdoors and camping. I also have a cosmetology degree which comes in handy for my family but being mom is my number one job.
Kristen, Social Media Manager (Favorite Print: It's a tie between Maverick & Wildwood)
Before finding Buttons and the cloth community, I never knew it was possible to love diapers so much. Thankfully, my wonderful husband also supports my obsession and our dear son has benefitted from a comfy bum since he was 5 days old. Though there are many reasons to choose cloth, I'll admit it was the adorable prints that first drew me to cloth and Buttons. I'm a Graphic Designer by trade so these colorful diapers make my heart happy! I also enjoy baking, reading novels, researching all things baby, and doing anything at all with my family.
Lauren, Social Media Video Manager (Favorite Print: Kaleidoscope)
Cloth diapering... I came for budget purposes & stayed for the community and adorable prints. My degree is in Interior Design so naturally, the concept of diapers coordinating to holidays/special occasions or outfits makes me happy. I love educating families on cloth diapering, and the creativity that comes with photographing new releases. I married my high school sweetheart and we have one kiddo. I love spending time with family and friends, puzzles, and cookies. It is hard to narrow down just one favorite print, which changes a lot, but for now it is Kaleidoscope.
Sarah, Photographer (Favorite Print: Kaleidoscope or Daydream)
Our cloth diapering journey began in 2015 when my husband and I were looking for an eco friendly diapering option. Thankfully we stumbled upon Buttons and the rest is history. I am an ER nurse, and enjoy doing photography on my days off. One of my favorite things to photograph is my 2 girls. It is something that we all enjoy doing together. I also love photographing Buttons and using social media to connect with other cloth families. In my spare time I enjoy running, baking and playing outside with my family.
