Its time again for the Great Cloth Diaper Change. Eleanor and I participated for the second time this year! Last year we went to Long Beach with Aunt Jackie. This year we diaper changed at Kissui In Redlands, CA and daddy came along. Kissui is a cute little shop with a lot to offer. They carry a variety of brands such as, BumGenius, Tula, Skip Hop, Ollie Jones and more.
Last year the diaper change broke a Guinness World Record with 8,459 babies changed into re-usable cloth diapers across 18 countries on 26 April 2014. This year the change was not affiliated with Guinness due to new regulations that required video (most were uncomfortable with this due to the nature of the event). So we tried to break last years record for fun. Our location had 65 babies changed into 100% Re-usable cloth diapers. We will get the total numbers soon once they are posted.
The change started at 11am so all the mommies & daddies and babies lined up in designated areas on the floor. We peeped with changing mats or blankets. We all held up the fresh diapers we planned on using and snapped a photo. Then we all held up our babies and in their dirty diapers and snapped another photo. Once it was 11am exactly they rang a bell and we all started changing. Once everyone was done we held up our babies in their fresh diapers and we were done!
In the group photo above you can see Jon, Eleanor and I walking in, we arrived pretty close to start so Eleanor wouldn’t get too overwhelmed with all the people. Of course she still did but we distracted her with snacks and things to do. As you can see in the before shot she looks a little grumpy. I changed her into the same diaper we used last year, I am a little nostalgic!
It was a great event and it was very organized. I was pretty impressed. Eleanor will most likely be potty trained by next years change but Little Anderson will be participating with me again Can’t wait!
