Fluffy Bottoms Cloth Diaper Event June 1-30th

If you follow me on Twitter then you know that I have been tweeting quite a bit about cloth diapers lately. I am trying to learn about all of the different types of modern cloth diapers that are available these days. When my kids were babies I used cloth diapers but that was 25 & 29 years ago so my idea of a cloth diaper was a large piece of white cloth that had to be folded in a particular fashion to fit snuggly on a baby to offer complete coverage and hold the messiest of messes. I used safety pins to hold this diaper in place. I remember the ritual of rubbing the safety pin through my hair so it would slide easily through the layers of cloth -it was no fun poking yourself with a pin that got stuck in the fabric and needed to be pushed too hard. Then to top this lovely diaper, and hold the moisture and solids, I snapped on or or pulled up a pair of plastic pants. Much different then what is available today.

When my grandchildren where born I encouraged my daughter to use cloth diapers. I had such fond memories (believe it or not) of washing and folding the freshly dried cloth diapers and I wanted her to experience that too. She tried using the pocket cloth diapers but didn't stick with it because the laundry was just too much for her since she also works full-time. This was the catalyst for me to find the perfect cloth diaper that wouldn't create as much laundry, in hopes that she would give it another try.
As the owner of a baby & maternity shop I want to stock cloth diapers that I think are the most favorite of moms, but I just don't know enough about all of the varieties that are available to make that decision. That's why I have been talking (tweeting) with moms on Twitter so much lately. I have discovered that Twitter has a huge following of cloth diaper users. There seems to be quite a cloth diaper movement going on there. Just go to Twitter and search #ClothDiapers if you want to see for yourself. These Twitter Mama's have been very helpful in educating this grandma and I so appreciate all of their help. I have so much to learn!
One of those Cloth Diapering Twitter Mama's is Stephanie. She has a great blog called "My New Life As a Mom". If you have been considering cloth diapers for your baby, but just didn't know where to begin, this might just be the best time to start thinking serious about it because Stephanie is hosting a month long Fluffy Bottoms Cloth Diaper Event from June 1st -30th.

During this Fluffy Bottoms Cloth Diaper Event she is going to shed some light on cloth diapers with styles of cloth, price comparisons, common misconceptions and more importantly, how to care for them. Not only will she shed a little light on the fluff, but she'll also be giving away some pretty great prizes! I am so looking forward to reading all of her blog posts and learning all there is to know about cloth diapers...and winning some cool prizes too. One thing I am doing to earn extra entries in her Fluffy Bottoms Cloth Diaper Event Giveaways is to blog about the event. She will give anyone who blogs about the event, up until May 31st, 20 extra entries in each giveaway. You can do it too. Just see the rules on her blog.
