Area Business Spotlight: Nicki's Diapers

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Zwygart Real Estate

There is a strong entreprenurial spirit here in the Green County area.  Many small businesses call this area home.  Some are well known outside of the area, but little known here.

One of these businesses is Nicki's Diapers. Nicki's Diapers opened up a retail storefront in New Glarus last year under the name Planet Wise, but they have been operating online for considerably longer than that. Nicki's Diapers and Planet Wise show the half-hidden environmentalism that is surprisingly strong here in the Green County area.

As a cloth diaper user myself, the opening on Planet Wise made it even easier to keep my money local when shopping. They carry a large selection of cloth diapering necessities as well as the splurges that make cloth diapering more fun. Cloth diapering has been experiencing a quiet resurgence in recent years as people start to realize how easy it is.

However, Nicki believes in diversification, and she features so much more than just cloth diapers and diapering supplies. There is something for every baby and toddler here. The adorable Baby Legs line of leg warmers. Flexible soled shoes by Pediped, Jack and Lily, Shoo Shoos and Pedoodles. Baby carriers by Ergo, Hotslings, New Native, Ellaroo, ZoloWear and more. Lots of wooden toys. Swim diapers and sun hats. Train sets. Diaper bags. Even lollypops made with pure sugar and free from food coloring.

Nicki's and Planet Wise are here to be part of the community as well. The front of the store is devoted to a community area with sofas and toys for toddlers and preschoolers. They offer classes once a month to help people learn about babywearing and cloth diapering. If you are curious about either, the next class day is March 7. Cloth Diapering 101 is from 10 am until 11 am, and Babywearing 101 takes place from 11 am until noon. Both are free.

You can find Nicki's Diapers at 405 2nd St in New Glarus. Call the store at if you need directions. They are open Monday through Thursday from 9 am until 5 pm, Fridays from 9 am until 4:30 pm and Saturdays from 10 am until 3 pm.

Even if cloth diapering is not on your radar, stop in at Nicki's.  They have something for everyone and every budget.
