Cloth Diaper Carnival VIII: Cloth Diaper Awareness- National Cloth Diapering Day

This post is part of Cloth Diapering Bloggers’ and Dirty Diaper Laundry’s Cloth Diaper Carnival VIII: Cloth Diaper Awareness. Please visit the other bloggers participating. Here’s my BIG IDEA on how we can increase Cloth Diaper Awareness- Let’s set a goal to meet a Guinness World Record for the number of Cloth Diapers Changed in a given period of time on a named day- “National Cloth Diapering Day”- tbd Picture this; we pick a day to claim as “National Cloth Diapering Day” – leading up to that day, we network, post, blog, tweet, and get the word out. We pick three key cities and coordinate a big 3 hour play date in the park. During this time we have Cloth Diapering Stations set up for easy changing and documentation. We keep track of the number of diapers changed and we also can then calculate the number of disposables we saved from the landfills. Our goal will be to set the number of cloth diapers changed in 3 hours world record (pending Guinness World Record Approval). What do think? I bet we could make this a go, hey – we may even be able to get a Guinness World Record rep to join us at one of the events, which would really increase our press exposure. Let’s invite non cloth diapering moms to attend the event and try cloth diapering and …

“Why does your baby look like a Who?”

This is what my brother asked me within minutes of meeting my then-2-month-old baby Oskar over the holidays. My husband and I, baby in tow, made the eight-hour trek by car (typically five hours, but baby adds three) specifically to introduce our new bundle to my family. The highlight of this visit was that Oskar would have the opportunity to meet my brother’s baby — Oskar’s cousin — for the first time, along with a host of tittering aunts and fawning uncles and fussing grandparents. We arrived and made the whirlwind of introductions, barely surviving the onslaught of camera flashbulbs that went off when the babies held hands upon meeting. Then, not long after, “Why does your baby look like a Who?” “What?” I asked. “A Who,” my brother replied. “A which?” “A Who. You know, from Dr. Seuss?” he clarified. “Oh,” I said. “As in, Horton Hears a…” “A Who.” My brother pointed at my baby’s butt. I looked at Oskar and realized what my brother was trying to say in his typically colorful way. Oskar did look somewhat like a Who, one of the tiny, cheerful, and vaguely pear-shaped inhabitants of Whoville, with his one-piece romper stretched over his little body and his especially rotund bottom. That’s because Oskar was sporting our pocket diaper of choice, a Smartipants, double-stuffed for the long car ride, and was looking extra-fluffy …
