Great Cloth Diaper Change
April 22, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.
Join Tiny Tots and Harmony Mama this Earth Day in celebrating the 7th Annual Great Cloth Diaper Change!
An estimated 18 billion diapers go into US landfills a year. Let's do our part this Earth Day to raise awareness of all of the various benefits to using cloth diapers, including the reduced environmental impact!
2017 is the year we focus on sharing the benefits of cloth diapering with families who have not tried them yet. Join us and help us change diapers one baby at a time!
Registration begins at 10:00 a.m. The Great Cloth Change (the change itself) will happen promptly at 11:00 a.m.
Join us before or after the change for refreshments, keepsake photographs, Earth Day activities for the kids, and a chance to meet representatives from local organizations supporting parents in the community.
What time should I arrive?
Registration starts at 10:00 a.m. The diaper change must happen at 11:00 a.m. around the globe to ensure all locations fall within a 24 hour period. If you arrive late, you may not be counted.
What type of diaper can be used?
Any 100% reusable cloth diaper can be used. Diapers purchased online or at a physical retail store, sewn at home, or provided through Tiny Tots Diaper Service are all acceptable. (This includes diapers made by WAHM’s or purchased through Etsy.)
Does baby need to arrive in a cloth diaper in order to be counted?
When a parent arrives for the event, their baby can be in a disposable or a cloth diaper. However, each baby must be changed into a 100% reusable cloth diaper at the time of the official change.
Can cloth trainers be used?
Yes! We now allow cloth trainers to be counted as well. The same general guidelines for diapers apply to trainers as well.
If I have twins, can one adult change two babies?
No, there must be exactly one participant paired with each child. Hosts can help find extra changers to handle this situation and include all possible babies in the change. Or, you can have an older sibling, family member, or friend help change your twins.
Can someone younger than 18 be the diaper changer?
Yes! We have relaxed the age requirements to be more inclusive.
Is there a time limit that the diaper change needs to happen in?
No, the change must start at 11:00 a.m. but the change is not a race. We encourage you to enjoy the change. When everyone has completed the change, we will proceed with the post event photography.

Judy Aagard’s desire to celebrate Earth Day by hosting a family event for the Tiny Tots community quickly morphed into a dream to set a Guinness World Record and further the reach of cloth diapering around the globe. Shortly thereafter, The Great Cloth Diaper Change was conceived and organized by a small group of cloth diaper enthusiasts that were eager to demonstrate that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s families. A Guinness World record was set with 5,026 qualifying changes happening simultaneously.
The record was broken with 8,251 qualifying changes.
The record was broken yet again with 8,301 qualifying changes and over 10,000 total changes happening around the globe.
The record was broken again with 8,459 qualifying changes.
