This week the Real Diaper Association celebrates Real Diaper Week. This is a week of cloth diaper advocacy fun leading up to The Great Cloth Diaper Change! Blogs across the land will be talking about the following topcis in any related way possible. You can bet that I’m joining in! Although I usually only post every three-ish days, I will be posting daily with several new posts and linking up to some recycled posts that are relevant to the topics for the week! Maintaining the family and home keep me from daily posts – maybe someday I will have enough advertisers to merit help from a mother’s helper so I can write more. Ahem. Space available.
There is A LOT going on this week. Here is the line up of what topics will be discussed on each day of this week:
Day 1 (April 16th): Real Simple Real Diapers Outreach – Cloth Diapering 101
Day 2 (April 17th): Real Simple Real Diapers Waste Reduction – Waste Reduction, Environmental benefits, Elimination Communication (diaper-free baby)
Day 3 (April 18th): Real Simple Real Diapers Savings – Cost savings, diapering on a budget, cloth diaper banks or support organizations
Day 4 (April 19th): Real Simple Real Diapers for Babies – Health benefits, cloth diapers in hospitals, or cloth diapers in day cares
Day 5 (April 20th): Real Simple Real Diapers Reuse – Reuse, traveling with cloth, cloth diapering at night
Day 6 (April 21st): Great Cloth Diaper Change 2012 – Attend and invite a friend to a local GCDC event!

Bloggers will be posting on these topics and many will be joining to share their posts at the Real Diaper Week Blog Hop over at The Eco Chic. What does that mean? You can head over to The Eco Chic and see a list of all the blogs that have joined the blog hop. This is a great way to find new cloth diapering resources and blogs that you might love! I’ll be linking my posts to the Blog Hop daily. If you are a blogger writing about any of the Real Diaper Week topics, please link your post up!

Click HERE to join Heather McNamara’s pledge to donate $5 for every 1,000 cloth diapers changed at this years Great Cloth Diaper Change. Last year’s record was set at 5,025 diapers changed and this year we expect to double that at close to 10,000 diapers changed! You can donate more or less depending on your situation and love of cloth.
I’m getting excited!!!!!
