Cloth Diaper Carnival VIII- Cloth Diaper Awareness

Now, take a look at that cute baby. Isn't he the cutest? And what makes him cute, besides mommy and daddy? His adorable cloth diaper!

For as long as I can remember, even when I was younger I use to.... get shivers down my spine when I would see those disposable diapers on toddlers running around in the playground or at the grocery store. And the texture and feeling just gives me chills down my spine.

Now there are so many positives to using cloth diapers, I see no reason for families now-a-days to not use cloth diapers. But some ways that I've been interesting in getting the word out more. I've made calls and emails to our local WIC office and mom groups and playgroups. Response? No. I have never seen anyone in my area use cloth diapers. When I started out about a year ago now I got some help from one mom that I found on freecycle. She gave me some homemade fitted diapers she used for her baby a few years back. They were a bit stiff but I washed them in Rockin' Green and they looked like new after sunning them and fluffin in the dryer for a few minutes. Anywho, so I suggest that we try to get our cloth diaper moms and dads to go out and spread the word about cloth diapers by word of mouth. I mean, I tell lots of people that I use cloth diapers. By the end of the year we can have a whole lot of information out there that moms still use cloth diapers.

I've also been wanting to get in touch with planned parenthood to do informative classes about cloth diapers and let young mothers and families know that there is another alternative when it comes to diapering your little ones.

Another way would to reach out to all the preggo mamas and their families and get cloth diaper companies to send out information to you so that you can share with those families. I did do one baby shower where I did a little demo and then play a game with cloth diapers and did some trivia. That was tons of fun, and I hope to do it again, but I need additional resources. Yes, we can find and print out that information on our own, but company business cards and brochures are more fancy than mine.

Those are my ideas and thoughts on how we can get the information out there about the use of cloth diapers. Oh and I hope Ellen does do a segment on cloth diapers this coming season. I will be watching Ellen!

  1. Great ideas! I love the idea of doing baby showers...I definitely plan to offer myself as a demonstrator at any showers I'm invited to! Even if they don't bite, maybe someone else there will!

    Yay for CD on Ellen!!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
