The Great Cloth Diaper Change in Simcoe County

We're celebrating reusable diapers! On Saturday April 18th, 2015 parents across the country will be attempting to break the world record for the most cloth diapers changed at one time.

This world record attempt is a great way to show the world that many people are already choosing and using reusable cloth diapers successfully. This will be a fun event to help spread the cloth diapering love and show the world how easy and FUN cloth diapering can be!

WHEN

Saturday, April 18th at 10:30 AM for registration and set up. Diaper change is at 11:00 AM sharp!

WHERE

5 Ontario Street, in Orillia, Ontario at Parenting By Nature (upper level, Wellness Lounge).

REGISTRATION

Registration will open March 1st for this year's event. Please contact us to be put on our wait list.

Why Cloth Diapers?

Reusable cloth diapers have many benefits, including:

  • Environmental: Cloth diapers reduce waste for families with children in diapers by more than 50%.
  • Financial: Cloth diapers allow families to save as much as or more than $2000 per child.
  • Health: Cloth diapers help parents reduce exposure of their babies’ skin and lungs to the chemicals in disposable diapers.
  • Easy and effective: Cloth diapering parents report less leaking and less mess when using cloth diapers.
  • Cute and comfortable: Parents love putting soft, cozy cloth diapers, available in a variety of styles and patterns, on their babies.
  • Convenient: Once you’ve purchased your stash, no more weekly trips to the store to purchase more – simply put a load in the laundry!
