Cloth Diaper Geek blog celebrates 20K fans with an impressive month long giveaway!

Cloth Diaper Geek blog celebrates 20K fans with an impressive month long giveaway!

The Cloth Diaper Geek blog was started in January of 2011.  After selling my online cloth diaper store I knew I had to find a way to continue to stay immersed in the industry and community that had become such a big part of my life. From Fan #1 in January 2011 to Fan #20,000 in April 2014 it’s been a fun journey.  Cloth diaper brands, styles and stores have come and gone and families have cloth diapered, potty trained and moved on while others continue to cloth diaper multiple children over multiple years and may have been around to witness my start. Though I no longer have babies small enough to cloth diaper, I still feel I have a relevant perspective to share and at this point, advocacy is as easy as remembering to take another breath, the words just come out! Celebrating 20K fans is an amazing honor and if I don’t acquire even one more fan I’d be happy just where I am today. Hopefully you’ll recognize and appreciate the 30+ sponsors for this great giveaway.  Each has been a cloth diaper brand, store or distributor that … Continue reading

Cloth Diapers at the D.C. Birth and Babies Fair

Cloth Diapers at the D.C. Birth and Babies Fair

Saturday, May 3rd I was honored to host a cloth diapering drop in session at The D.C. Birth & Babies Fair. My husband chauffeured me to The Hill Center in South East D.C. and dragged my giant suitcase of fluff up the stairs for me. I was really excited about this and surprisingly, not nervous. My only fear was that I’d be left standing there alone with no one interested. Boy was I surprised! I had a plan to set up the diapers & accessories by type, and I printed Dirty Diaper Laundry’s info cards to place by each group. Families started coming by with questions as I was taking items out, and I ended up doing the entire session from a big pile of fluff. The hour flew by with the room packed nearly the entire time. My husband snapped the photo above and he wanted to take a better one, but didn’t want to be the creepy guy taking pictures of people. There were lots of Dads excited about cloth, and they were full of questions. There were first time moms, a nanny now having her own child, … Continue reading

I’m Co-Hosting the Great Cloth Diaper Change 2014, Shepherdstown

I was so thrilled to co-host the Great Cloth Diaper Change, Shepherdstown, WV (GCDC) last year with Up On the Hill (that’s me in the hip moms shirt above!), and I am psyched to announce that we will be co-hosting again this year! The 2014 GCDC in Shepherdstown is going to be a community event to welcome all families. We’ve taken over the Shepherd University ballroom to invite businesses from the tri-state area to exhibit. We’ll have activities, demos and seminars for the whole family on Saturday April 26th from 9-1, with the highlight being the Great Cloth Diaper Change at 11:00 AM. We’ll be featuring goodie bags and raffles from both local businesses and “green” companies nationwide. We’ll also have loaner diapers for people who don’t cloth diaper currently, but want to participate in the change. Raffle & goodie bag inclusion is free, and fees collected from vendors (above the event costs) will be donated to the Real Diaper Association to advocate for cloth diapers. Get in touch to inquire about sponsoring the Shepherdstown location, register if you’re in the MD/WV/VA area, or find a location near you. Happy … Continue reading

Why you should host the Great Cloth Diaper Change in your area!

January is one of my favorite times of the year.  The madness of the Thanksgiving and Christmas rush are over, and New Years Resolutions have been made (and broken… twice), and registration opens to host a location for my favorite Guinness World Record Event – The Great Cloth Diaper Change! April 26, 2014 – 11am your time This year, I will be hosting my fifth Great Cloth Diaper Change in the Houston area, and I’m so excited!  I love having rooms filled with families that don’t judge me or question my parenting.  It’s a fun time where we can share poop stories without anyone looking at us like we’ve lost our minds! Is there usually a GCDC in your area?   Do you attend?  If there is a location in your area already registered, get with the host and find out if there’s anything that you can do to help with the event.  Volunteers to help things run smoothly on that day are in high demand! If there’s not a GCDC registered in your area, I have a few reasons why I highly suggest registering to host a location! Cloth Diaper … Continue reading
