This past Saturday was the much talked about event, The Great Cloth Diaper Change. I haven't spent a lot of time talking about it on my blog because it seemed like every natural parenting blog was "covering" it. But I do feel that I ought to at least mention our experience with it.
We made arrangements to stop at the East Cleveland location on our way to visit Daryl's family for the Easter holiday. It was hosted by Ecoroots and held at the Woodmere Whole Foods Market on Chagrin Blvd.
The event, for those who aren't up to date with the fluffy-butt scene, was an attempt to raise awareness about the ease and benefits of modern cloth diapering.Many communities, including the Whole Foods market, incorporated the event into their "earth week" celebrations. The goal was to have as many cloth diapers changed simultaneously around the globe, to claim a world breaking title. Most locations included information about cloth diapers and other natural parenting methods and products.
At our location, there were raffles for free cloth diapers, a photography session with a professional photographer, and free herbal supplements for nursing and expecting mothers. I won a bottle of Motherlove More Milk Plus!
There was also a folk singer to entertain the children as we waited, free samples of healthy and organic snacks, as well as coupons and samples of natural products. Evie really enjoyed the musician and dancing with the other children. She even tried to stand up and dance! When she lost her balance, she decided it was better to sit up on her knees.
