We had the awesome opportunity to participate in this years Great Cloth Diaper Change!
The Great Cloth Diaper Change is a non-profit organization that first started as a goal to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records, for the most diapers changed simultaneously. It has since become a great resource for families to gather and learn about the benefits of cloth diapering their babies!
We were lucky enough to have a change event close to us this year, and we excitedly made our way to it this past month. Bruce is a naturally sociable baby, and he made friends with the events photographer quickly 🙂
The GCDC was sponsored by some great cloth diaper companies, including Grovia, Spraypal, Rumparounds, GlowBug, and a variety of local sponsors.
The event starts with a photo op for the diaper to be changed, a shot of the clean diaper, and then a photo after the change of the new diaper on the baby.
The group contributed 15 babies to this years overall total of babies changed, towards the new goal for the year.
Lots of great vendors had info and products set up, and they even did a raffle, which was great of us mommies to have a chance to win something diaper related, or non-diaper related, but totally for mommy.
I didn’t win anything diaper-wise, but got away with winning three bath sets just for myself!(Ryan didn’t get my excitement however, because who has time for a bath? Showers yes, but he’s right, this mama doesn’t get much soak time. One day…)
It was a really great opportunity to connect with other moms and learn more about different products out there! I am even happier that my whole family was able to attend and go with me. I think even Ryan had fun, although he was a little lost on some of the diaper stuff. He is 100% behind cloth, so I was really happy he shows an interest and wants to learn as well.
Some of these pictures are mine, some are the wonderful work of photographer Mark Durant (they are marked accordingly), which I have to thank for his work and collaboration with this blog-and apologize for my ham of a son for taking up so much of his time with the camera!
And I’d also like to thank the GCDC Organization for everything they do! Check out their site where you can find more info on what they do, as well as info on next year’s change.
