Cotton Babies has long been frustrated by the lack of information available about how each baby wearing disposable diapers impacts landfills.We are working on a project to collect data about how much used disposable diapers weigh. The goal of this project is to estimate the approximate weight of the waste generated from a child wearing disposable diapers full time. To participate, please have your baby wear one disposable diaper for a normal length of time (as you define it). At the next diaper change, please weigh that disposable diaper. You can submit the information about that diaper using this form:http://survey.constantcontact.com/survey/a07e2vcyg3lg8kjrgtb/startAfter the

I've done quite a bit of traveling for business. Everywhere I go, I look for cloth diapers and how other cultures handle diaper care. Diaper care is an important issue in other parts of the world too, so I'm just as interested in what people put on their baby's bottom as I am in how they take care of it after it's dirty. In every bathroom, in every country, I notice the toilet design, what's on the wall, whether or not there is toilet paper, how many years it might have been since the toilet was cleaned... (you get the picture).
All moms deserve to be treated with respect. I'll say it again, maybe a little louder this time. All moms deserve to be treated with respect.We all know that there are really bad moms out there. I'm not writing about those moms. I'm writing about the moms we are all friends with - the ones who really, truly, want to do a good job taking care of their baby. I'm writing about you. You deserve to know that you are a good mom. Over the last seven years, I've found myself in an interesting position with the parents who shop in
Help a Mother Out partners with organizations throughout California to bring diapers to high need families. They essentially match up donators with donees (is that a word?) to provide diapers to families and young mothers in need. They also partner with diaper banks around the nation. Since May 2009, they have collected over 156,900 diapers for families in need! SO INCREDIBLE!Most of the families they help are not in a position to use cloth, but we recently saw a tweet from them mentioning one of their partnering organizations had a need for cloth diapers and we were so blessed to
