    6 out of 10… not too bad

  2. Not bad at all! But I encourage you to work towards 10/10!

  3. I’ve done 9 of them. 🙂 (I’ve never sunned my diapers because… well, I wrote a blog post about that.)

  4. oh my gosh! how cute!! <3 # 7 are diapers I made!!

    1. I was just thinking how awesome they are. 🙂

    Oh my gosh, I love those photos!!! (The crab outfit . . . I want that!) And who did the diapers on the twins? Those look like they fit great!

  6. These are all super cute ideas and I’m proud to say they’ve all been checked off at my house! I’ve even co-organized a GCDC Toronto event! I love cloth diapers!

  7. 6 out of 10. Someday, it will be at least 8, maybe 9.

  8. Norma L. Martinez

    I need to work on these!

    Love #8! Noah and Thomas love playing matchsies!

    1. Yes, when Noah is not crying and Thomas is not hitting!

  10. Haha! This is really cute. I have only done 5, 6 if you count donations to Giving Diapers Giving Hope instead since I’m in the states.

    1. That obviously counts! 🙂

  11. Is it bad that #4 made me cringe? All I can picture is the icing staining the outside of my diapers and them not being as pretty. Problems, I has them LOL.

    1. Siobhan, I was careful in my choice of diaper (not my most precious) in case of staining, and I chose a darker colour intentionally too! I understand!

  12. I would love to know where you got your clothes pins. I cannot stand the wood ones that fall apart and have been looking everywhere for something better. Those are great!!!

    1. I’ll have to ask my husband’s aunt as that’s her clothesline I borrowed!

    Our cloth diapers have:
    Set a record
    Seen the sun
    Been matched to outfits
    Been cake smashed in
    Are CURRENTLY displayed in a rainbow and are definitely collected like trading cards! LOVE this post!

    OR you can donated to The Rebecca Foundation or Share the Love, Cloth for Cause isnt the only program to donate too.. TRFCDC is the only non-profit and provides tax receipts the others cant.

      I second the TRFCDC as it helped my family for free when I couldn’t afford fees or shipping for any others.
