I'll be Breaking a Record (Again) at The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2013!


The Great Cloth Diaper Change is almost here! Haven't heard of The Great Cloth Diaper Change before?  The Great Cloth What....? you ask. The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an event where moms (and dads) get together to set a Guinness World Record for the most cloth diapers changed at the same time. All attending parents will change their babies diapers at the same time. This will happen at each locations local time, meaning the change will be happening around the globe when the clock strikes 11:00 AM! 

This will be my second time attending the event and I'm super excited! I attended the first ever Great Cloth Diaper Change in 2011 with little Michael! It is such a fun time to get together with other cloth diapering parents and then we all scramble to change our little ones diapers at the same time! Not only is this a fun cloth diapering event to try to break the Guinness World Record for those of us who love cloth diapers, but it is also a wonderful opportunity to help spread some awareness about reusable diapers!

Here's a fun little "history in numbers" about The Great Cloth Diaper Change:
  • The first Great Cloth Diaper Change was in 2011:
    • There were 5026 simultaneous cloth diaper changes! 
    • I am proud to say that little Michael and I were counted in this world record! 

  • The second Great Cloth Diaper Change was in 2012:
    • There were 8,251 qualifying participants
    • 189 locations
    • Happened on 4 continents
    • Unfortunately, little Michael and I did not get the chance to participate in this one, since he was almost completely potty trained by then. 

  • This year, at The Great Cloth Diaper Change 2013:
    • There are 285 hosts that have registered!
    • Riley and I will be making history and be counted in this world record! 

I will be attending The Great Cloth Diaper Change at Babies in Bloom in Vista, CA with little Riley! I went to the GCDC at Babies in Bloom for the very first event in 2011 with little Michael! This year, I will be wearing a Cloth Diaper Advocacy Shirt from Kelly's Closet (affiliate link) and little Riley will be sporting a "Cloth Rocks"  tee from Dirty Diaper Laundry, paired with a bumGenius diaper!

I am so excited that I can attend the same event and (hopefully) break the world record with Riley! What a great way to spend Earth Day!
