If you are attending MommyCon Minneapolis on Saturday, April 18th, YOU can participate in the 5th annual Great Cloth Diaper Change with everyone at MommyCon. All Things Diapers is helping coordinate the details of this event.
The Great Cloth Diaper Change is when everyone gets together on the same date and time every year and changes a cloth diaper. Last year, there were participates on 6 different continents and the world record was broken. There were 188 events hosted all over and 8,459 babies were changed.
This year, they are hoping to break that record AGAIN!
The purpose of the Great Cloth Diaper Change is to spread the word about the many benefits of cloth diapering. There are financial, health, environmental, convenience and other benefits that make cloth diapering great!
Keep your eyes open for even more details for the MommyCon Minneapolis, Great Cloth Diaper Change. It is another reason for you to go!
This is a great place to visually see all types of diapers, ask questions, and learn what diaper system will work best for you. When I attended last year, I was pregnant with Amelia and had already been cloth diapering Monte for a little over two years. I thought I knew, what I needed to know about cloth diapering, but I learned so much more!
The Cloth Diapering Resource Center is presented by Dirty Diaper Laundry (bookmark their site, because it is awesome and full of information). You can learn how and what to use for cloth diapering from birth to toddlerhood. Kim Rosas will be traveling with MommyCon 2015 and will be available to answer questions and talk about everything cloth diaper.
There will be all sorts of diapers available to see and touch at at the Cloth Diapering Resource Center:
If you have not purchased your tickets for MommyCon 2015, I am offering $5 off your ticket!
Don’t forget there is a conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota; Saturday, April 18th.
Guess what?! I found out that my discount code Midwestmom15 is not only good for the MommyCon Minneapolis Conference, it is good for any conference, nation wide! I am so excited. That means I can offer this code to anyone, anywhere!
Did you know that there is a MommyCon Conference much sooner then April, in the midwest? Yes, there is one Saturday, February 21st in Chicago. If you are in the Des Moines area, that really isn’t too far. So, if you cannot wait until April, I highly recommend making the trip to Chicago.
I attended my first MommyCon conference last year in Chicago. My best friend and I were both pregnant and we made it a fun, long girls weekend! The hotel was great and there were lots of yummy places to eat for us pregnant girls 🙂
I just received the MommyCon Chicago schedule and it looks awesome! Some speakers, workshops to look forward to …

I have something fun and awesome to tell you about! Do you have a cloth diaper obsession?! There is a brand new business that will “help” you with that cloth diaper addiction 🙂 Cutie Booty Box! You have probably heard of StitchFix, Barkbox, Wine of the Month Club, Beer of the Month Club, etc. This is the same idea, but all about cloth diapering!
Bianca, is the owner and creator of Cutie Booty Box. The idea came to her last year and she has worked extremely hard making her idea a reality! She is very familiar with cloth diapering and products, since she has cloth diapered her daughter. She is also located in Altoona, Iowa! She is local! Yay, for supporting local businesses! She also strives to support local businesses also.
I was VERY lucky to receive a Cutie Booty Box, to test it out! I was so excited and happy to open my package to see what goodies I had received.
Inside of every box is one diaper. You can choose from a gender neutral box, girl or boy box. I chose the gender neutral. There are also full size sample goodies from other companies for you to try out! Along with all your goodies, is a form, with a list of your goodies and descriptions of what you have received.
This months Cutie Booty Box included …
Sweet Pea Bamboo AIO Diaper
Sweet Pea Liners
Baby Bits Try-Me Pack
Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm Samples
Rockin’ Green Water Tester
The diaper was super cute, owl print of course! I was also excited to receive the Baby Bits Try-Me pack, because I have been wanting to try cloth wipes. I had purchased some reusable “wipes” from a vendor at MommyCon last year, so this will be the perfect opportunity to test them out!
I also enjoyed using the Rockin’ Green Water Tester. Since we started cloth diapering, about three years ago, we have had on and off issues with washing our diapers. We have always been told our water was hard! Now, I got to see exactly the hardness of our water was!
Umm pretty hard water … :/
It only takes 3-easy steps to sign up for a monthly subscription of Cutie Booty Box.
