The Great Cloth Diaper Change

It's later this month on the 21st! Anyone participating this year?
http://greatclothdiaperchange.com/

I'm excited because there's one an hour from me and I convinced my husband that as long as work doesn't interfere we'll make a family day out of it! Although even if his work does interfere, I'll probably go anyways. Wink I can't WAIT to finally check out Sweetbottoms in person! (Don't faint Kayla! :lol:) Should be a great crunchy mama day. I lived way too far from one last year, so very excited that I can participate this year!

The closest one to me is a good hour away. I'm sorta surprised. Maybe I can make something happen! I'll drop a hint to my BC's Mom & Baby group that they should sponsor an event.

I really hope you enjoy your visit to Sweetbottoms. I didn't mean that sarcastically. Biggrin I really wish we had a store like that around here!

I don't know if I'm participating. I hadn't planned on it but another CD mama asked me if I was and so I started looking into it. Why doesn't the website list the time? All I see is the countdown and if I figured it out correctly, it's at noon. That means it's very close to nap time and if you dealt with what we dealt with the other day, you don't want Jordan to get any less sleep than possible.

There is nothing nearby here the only place I know that might sponser an event is an hour and a half away. Also I have heard it is all being done at the same time making events here at like two am, so totally not happening

I think it's a 12:30pm eastern time.

I totally wouldn't do a 2am event either!

Isn't it usually local time? Wasn't the BFing challenge like that?

I think they are trying to set a record for most cloth nappies changed at the same time or something

Yes, that is my understanding.

Well, I can't participate because my baby won't be here until August, but the cloth diaper store by my house is sponsoring it at a church really near my house, and turning it into a baby expo! Biggrin I'm excited to go!

I had a great time at mine today! I'll post pictures once I eventually get them off of my camera (they're on a real camera, not my phone for once lol).

I dont think I'll be going again, atleast not here in Tampa. The place was extremely packed so i felt very claustrophobic and I dont have that phobia. They packed 110 moms+ babies into a room the size of a large living room. It was really ridiculous.

The thing that ticked me off the most was they had raffles going on, some really nice prizes, and they advertised and laughed that some woman entered 110 times. It was a FREE raffle, IMO you should only get ONE entry... but yeah, she got 100 entries and seemed super proud about it. Someone posted on the facebook page and said she won 4 things.

Poorly run, poor venue space, just not worth the 60 minute drive for me.

Oh wow! That's not cool at all. Sad I would actually send a message to the business/group that coordinated the event saying that you hope they find a bigger space next time because otherwise you (and probably others I bet!) won't go.
They supposedly had a raffle at my location only no body knew anything about it. I never saw a raffle, but I had free raffle tickets in my goodies bag. It was really strange. I did like the bag I got though. It was full of samples - CD detergents, wipes, lotions, CJs, coupons, etc. I'll try to remember to upload pictures later today. Smile
