Help set world record at ‘Great Cloth Diaper Change’

Around Western BaptistDo you want to set a world record? If you have a baby, you have a chance at the “Great Cloth Diaper Change” at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 21, at the Baptist Heart Center auditorium.

Our event is timed to coincide with similar events at 245 sites in 14 countries in an attempt to break last year’s Guinness World Record of 5,026 cloth diapers changed simultaneously. It is scheduled the day before Earth Day and during International Cloth Diaper Awareness Week.

A photo will be taken of all participating mothers and babies to help document the world record. Baby wipes and diaper changing pads will be provided, but parents should supply their own cloth diapers.

The Great Cloth Diaper Change Why cloth diapers?

Local organizer Serena Anderson of Pryorsburg, who has two young children, said she has learned cloth diapers benefit both the environment and her wallet. She said the average parent can save more than $1,000 in two years by using cloth diapers.

Western Baptist is the obvious choice to host this event. It is the region’s “baby hospital,” where more than 60 percent of western Kentucky babies are delivered.

Western Baptist offers innovative maternity services with a lactation consultant to support breastfeeding and KangarooCare allowing mom and baby to bond skin-to-skin immediately after birth. It also offers the area’s only Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, which served more than 180 families in its first year in 2011.

    I love my daughters Fuzzibunz. She is in size mmdeuis and due to her small size she is still in them at size three on smaller setting. We are trying to potty train so these will be our last but we LOVE them. Cloth diapered with our son and used velcro closures and covers, these are so much better. Also love our laundry bag for storing dirty ones and the diaper sprayer is wonderful!
