Real Simple, Real Happy *Great Cloth Diaper Change Day*

Wooohooo! The Great Cloth Diaper Change happened today at 11:30 CST and we participated virtually with Rana from Dearest Diapers on Google+. I tried out G+ "Hangout" for the first time and it was pretty easy, once you knew what you were doing. I definitely recommend it if you want to video chat with a few friends!

So, while we were "Hanging Out" a little after 11:30 we changed our babies into a cloth diaper! All the other ladies had cute little boys, Eli was the only girl. Didn't film that, but I did film the 2nd change of the day into a Thirsties with a prefold. She doesn't need that much absorbancy because she's doing a pretty good job of going potty! I think I may just be prolonging the transition (shhhh).

Check out the video of us making a difference and changing into a Cloth Diaper! If you have any questions or would like more information, just click the Real Simple, Real Diapers logo to the top right of my blog to see all the posts from this week as well as The Eco Chic blog that hosted the week long event.


Like I said in the video if you attended or have any photos that you'd like to share, please post them on my facebook page to raise awareness, or on your facebook page. I also found a link to a local (in Texas) that had some video of this years event and had over 50 babies participate, they all look so cute! CLICK HERE to watch the clip.

Feel free to head on over to my YouTube Channel to get a sneak peek of what's to come for next months Cloth Diaper Challenge.... Flats! Kim from Dirty Diaper Laundry is having her 2nd annual Handwashing Challenge where we use only flats and a cover or pins to diaper our babies and HANDWASH them! It is just a fun thing to do, learn how to appreciate our modern cloth diapers and just how easy and inexpensive it can be to use cloth diapers.


One more thing... don't forget to enter the Real Diaper Week Giveaway!! It ends tomorrow at midnight.


  1. Too bad you didn't have an event near you, but it's awesome that we can do things like cyber diaper changes now! Thanks for checking out my blog :)

  2. I love that you did a virtual GCDC! Awesome!
