Today was The Great Cloth Diaper Change and even though it was raining all morning that didn’t stop Sugar and I from attending! My awesome sister came with us to snap a bunch of pictures and I was excited to see a good friend there as well – she’s actually making Baby Girl’s newborn diaper covers, yay! If you aren’t familiar with what The Great Cloth Diaper Change is all about it is an attempt to break the world record for the most cloth diapers changed at one time! This world record attempt is a great way to show the world how many people are already choosing and using reusable cloth diapers successfully. But there are still a lot of people who don’t know about cloth diapers and this is a great way to spread the word about how truly awesome cloth really is!
Here is a glimpse of how our day went at The Breastfeeding Center in Massillon, Ohio.
The rain put a little damper on the day, but all of us cloth diaper lovers still showed up and there were 42 participants at our location. After checking in Sugar, Courtney, and I hung out with Jessica and Corbin while waiting for 12:30PM EST to arrive….
Then it was time to head into the tent and get situated. Luckily I brought a big blanket with us that has a waterproof backing so Sugar and Corbin could be as comfy as possible in the rainy chilly Ohio weather. Once we were all ready a picture was snapped of everyone holding up the diapers they would be changing their little ones into…. we went with bumGenius this year.
Then it was time to get ready for 12:30PM EST. Jessica and I got Corbin and Sugar all ready and at the sound of a blow horn it was diaper changing time!
Then it was time to show off all the fresh fluffy butted babies.
Once all the babies were dressed and warm again it was time for door prizes! Betsy had an awesome assortment of door prizes to giveaway as well as goodie bags. I was super excited to hear my name called as a winner for a Breastfeeding with Bravado DVD, 6 pack of Bravado Washable Breast Pads, and a gift certificate for a Bravado Original Nursing Bra. The perfect prize to win with Baby Girl coming this summer. Yay!!!
So did you attend the Great Cloth Diaper Change this year? I wish our weather had been better like last year, but we still made the best of it! I can’t wait to hear how many babies were changed around the world and fill in Sugar’s certificate. And though I imagine Sugar will be potty trained by next year’s event I find comfort knowing that Baby Girl will be here then and I will have a few more years of fluffy butts in my house, hehe!
