So, a group of cloth diapering Mamas have made it their mission to get Ellen to feature cloth diapering on her show! I think it's a great idea!
I am a recent convert to cloth diapers, as most of you know, and I can tell you I already love it! It is so much easier than I thought it would be! I mean yeah, it's still a pain when you have a poopy diaper, but it's worth the money we are saving on regular diapers!
Now, I am not really "green" though I try and do small things. But on Dirty Diaper Laundry, she says:
"Without mass media exposure, something the mom run diaper businesses simply cannot afford, we can’t really let the moms of the world know that there is a better way. Mention cloth diapers to a room with 100 new moms, and maybe 10 would have heard of the Modern Cloth Diaper. The rest would think of pins, rubber pants, and stinky wet pails. The internet is full of niche cloth diaper communities, but we are preaching to the choir! They already know the benefits of cloth. The mom who watches your show every day doesn’t. She might recylce, buy organic food, compost, and drive a hybrid, and still use disposables. Why? Because she has no idea how easy they are. I have actually met people who are very green, and still use disposables for that reason!"
That is so true! I think if more people knew about how cloth diapering is now, more people would do it! Heck, if I would have known before Jack was born, I would have probably started then! =)
Anyways, I will leave you with a couple pictures of Jack in his new diapers!
