It's official, there is a new world record for the "most people changing diapers in 24 hours (multiple venues)" with 8,459 participants. There were 188 official locations in 18 countries this year. We broke last years record by 158 people!! The Great Cloth Diaper Change is an annual event hosted by the Real Diaper Association to help raise awareness of cloth diapers around the world. This is the 4th year and each year we've continued to break the previous years' record. The event was the brainchild of Judy Aagard and her desire to celebrate Earth Day by hosting a cloth diaper family event for the customers and fans of Tiny Tots. Other cloth diaper enthusiasts in the community were eager to join forces and the Great Cloth Diaper Change was born. I've been involved each year on some level and so proud to see the growth each year. My first year (2011) I was an official witness in Tampa, FL. In 2012 I was a co-host and helped organize the Tampa event. In 2013 I ... [ Read More ]

The Great Cloth Diaper Change (GCDC) 2013 is just a little over a week away! Join us on Thursday, April 18th as we kickoff this years event with a Twitter Party. This is the 3rd annual GCDC event to raise awareness about cloth diapers and help break a Guinness World Record for the most babies changed into a cloth diaper at the same time. In 2012, 256 locations in 15 countries held SIMULTANEOUS events to break the world record for the most reusable cloth diapers changes simultaneously. That meant that some events (like in Malaysia) happened at 2am! This years event will be a bit different with everyone changing their babies at 11am local time (wherever you are), so the change will roll around the world.

The day is finally here! It's time to set a new World Record with the Great Cloth Diaper Change!! I spent the entire day preparing for the event in a number of different capacities. The most exciting part of my preparations today was spending a few hours this evening with Jenn Labit (owner of bumGenius) as she arrived in Tampa and settled into her hotel. Curious about how many people are participating in the event? It's estimated that there are over 300 official locations in 17-18 countries! If all 300 locations had 25 people attend we would change 7,500 babies into cloth diapers - breaking last year's record! I know for sure there are a few events with over 100 attendees registered - some with 200 and 400! Can you imagine if we changed over 10,000 diapers?
