I know, I know. I have been on a cloth diaper posting streak! I promise the next post will not be about diapers!
I recently heard about a cloth diapering awareness project called “Global Fluffy Bum” and had to post about it. The premise is simple: One diaper traveling the world, gracing the bums of babies everywhere!
Hally Hotta started the project after being inspired by buying a used diaper that had a few different owners. To date the diaper has seen 30 bums, with more to come. In fact, Fletcher and I signed up today and we heard back that we won’t have to wait long. The diaper is on the east coast now!
Besides promoting awareness, this idea really drives the point home that cloth is durable and economical. I have bought many used diapers and they work just as well as a new diaper, if not better in some cases. Buying used can save you the trouble of prepping diapers to increase their absorbency. In fact today I bought a Piddle Poddles AI2 from diaperswappers.com that I can’t wait to get my hands on.
