Record Setting Diaper Change

On Saturday April 23rd, during The Great Cloth Diaper Change, I will be helping to set a Guinness World Record by having my diaper changed.  (Yup, you read that right.)   I, along with over 10,000 babies across the world, will have our bums changed into a cloth diaper in celebration of Earth Day.

Mama and I are excited to join our friends at Waddle n Swaddle for this cool event.  We have only been cloth diapering part-time, but hope to use this Earth Day message of GOING GREEN to motivated us to cloth diaper all the time!!!

Interested in joining this cloth diaper celebration and setting a world record in the process? Check out for more information.

Not using cloth?  NO PROBLEM!  There will be a cloth diaper available for you to use for the change (and then you can put back on your disposable).

Location: Waddle n Swaddle Poughkeepsie and Rhinebeck
Date: Saturday April 23rd, 2011
Time: Party starts at 10:30am EST and the change will happen at exactly 12pm EST!
Registration: Pre-registration is recommended,  but not necessary.
Cost: $1 registration fee is a donation to the Real Diaper Association, a non-profit who is spreading the word about re-usable diapers

So if you, or someone who belongs to you, is under 39 inches, sign up TODAY!

…. Did I mention the swag bags?  First 50 registrants at either location will get one!!!!  SUPER COOL!!!!


Cribsie Awards 2011

The votes are in…. Congrats to all the finalists and WINNERS of this year’s Cribsie Awards.  I look forward to using this site to check out new brands and products from this wonderful list!!

The 2011 Cribsie Awards are the brainchild of two of my favorite blogs: Stroller Traffic and A-List Mom.  The concept is simple, yet genius!  The public nominated, the editors chose the finalists, and then the public voted for their favorites!   These winners  create a MUST-HAVE list with links to all of the brands websites.   (Make sure you check out your favorite local store for some of these fabulous products!) Although not all of my favorite brands won (I LOVE YOU EMAB!), I am  happy with the results!

So take a look for yourself … How did your favorites do?

National Nap Day 2011

Did you know that yesterday was National Nap Day?  Neither did I!

National Napping Day was founded by a B.U. professor and his wife to encourage Americans to take a daily siesta. (They chose the date because after losing an hour for Daylight Savings Time, everyone is sleepy!)  Taking a nap everyday is said to have positive effects on your heart and your brain.  These studies show that it is not only good for Baby and Great-Grandma, but for Mama and Dada too!

So do yourself a favor and take a little snooze ……  zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
