Many of you may have seen the TODAY show segment about the new "designer" diapers from Pampers. Check out Amanda's post below for more information!
In an attempt to make disposables more appealing, Pampers is teaming up with designer Cynthia Rowley to feature limited edition prints. My feeling is that if you want a diaper to be cute AND functional AND save money, then go with cloth! My hope is that many parents, in wanting their babies' bottoms to be cute and comfortable, will actually take a closer look at cloth.
Jenn from Cottonbabies is thinking along those lines as well. She's organized cloth diapering families to stand outside the TODAY show tomorrow, July 8th to promote cloth. Parents will be outside, showing off their babies in cloth diapers. The hope is that it will help to bring awareness about cloth diapers even without a scheduled segment in the show.
I'm excited about venturing there this morning to help promote cloth diapers. I'll update after my trip with more details!
It was a good time! My daughter was extremely well-behaved, considering she woke up much earlier than usual and is not used to the hustle and bustle of the city. We met Jenn from Cottonbabies and her daughter. Everyone was very nice and it was great seeing other babies in cloth diapers. Since I didn't get there at 6, it was hard to tell how many moms and babies showed up. Everyone was scattered through the crowd so that the signs and babies could be more visible. I'm positive that one mom spoke about cloth diapers on camera, but I haven't seen the tape to know how visible the diapers were.
