The second annual Great Cloth Diaper Change℠ happens in just 9 short days and I want you to be there! With over 305 locations registered spanning across 16 countries there are many opportunities to participate in a Guiness World Record™ breaking event for most cloth diapers changed simultaneously.
The Great Cloth Diaper Change℠ takes place at 12 PM EST on April 21, 2012. Participants will be expected to bring a baby to the event (in a cloth or disposable diaper) to change into a cloth diaper. Babies must be under 39″ in height to be counted. As a tip from last year anyone hoping to attend should also bring a blanket or changing mat and a cloth wipe (to cover the private area of your baby between diapers). This event is not just a diaper change! All locations will be working hard to make it a family friendly event. Many will have entertainment, goodie bags, vendors, and opportunities to win cloth diapers and other great gear.
