Join In: Real Diaper Week April 16th-21st

Did you know that on April 21st, Cloth Diaper Crazies like myself will be participating in the Great Cloth Diaper Change. This event will attempt to set the world record for the number of babies undergoing a cloth diaper change simultaneously! Venues all over the United States will be set up! Go HERE to find a location nearest you!

In our little state of Connecticut, the event will be hosted in Groton! We need your help though. If you are a Cloth Diaper fanatic and would like to participate, please RSVP on the Connecticut Facebook Event Page! All you need is a baby, a diaper, and some blanket or changing pad to change your baby...and of course yourself!

It is really important that you pre-register for a few reasons:

  • The first 25 people get Goodie Bags (this alone should make you sign up)!
  • If we do not have 25 people, our "changes" will not count towards the world record:(
  • Preparations need to be made to accommodate for the group
I look forward to seeing you there!!
