Great Cloth Diaper Change 2012: Real Simple. Real Diapers.

The Great Cloth Diaper Change will take place on April 21, 2012 in various locations across the globe. This year we will be attempting to break the record set last year.

The Great Cloth Diaper Change is the finale of what is being called “Real Diaper Week.”  Participating areas will be hosting cloth diaper focused events all week long.

This year I was asked to make a video to promote The Great Cloth Diaper Change once again.  I had a lot of fun making the video for last year which involved my own baby and multiple changes in front of a green screen.  Watch last year’s video.

Because the theme for this year was “Real Simple.  Real Diapers.” I had the idea of showing how simple and easy modern cloth diapers can be.  I asked the owners of Basic Baby if I could film willing babies and parents after their first Real Diaper Circle meeting in Syracuse, NY.  I had quite a few participants.  Most of the diapers you see belong to the babies and only 2 diapers belonged to myself.  I asked people to use those to make sure we showed a variety representative of the cloth diapers available.

I have been toying with the idea of filming a video showing flats, pins, and rubber pants in comparison to modern cloth diapers.  I always envisioned the scene of pinning to be in the style of an old film movie.  I finally got the opportunity to do it for this video.  Fun Fact: I actually pricked my finger when pinning that diaper.

Thank you again to all of the mothers, fathers, and babies who came out to be filmed!

Please share this video and spread the word!  This year’s Great Cloth Diaper Change is going to be amazing!
