Planning My Cloth Diaper Party

A while back, my cloth diaper mentor sent me a link to information about hosting a cloth diaper party. It looked interesting, but I didn't think too much about it. Suddenly, in the last week, I've had three friends writing to me asking for advice about cloth diapers, and recalled the diaper party idea again. So, I've decided to do it! In about a month (date yet to be determined) I will be unpacking a big box of a wide assortment of modern cloth diapers, and talking about them to my friends and anyone else who shows up. If anyone buys anything at the party, or through my affiliate link, I get a commission! If no one buys anything, oh well, I get to spend an afternoon playing with diapers with other mamas. I can just send the whole box back, and I'm only out shipping costs. Seems like a win-win. There will be at least one prize for a lucky attendee, and I'm thinking about making cloth wipes to give away, and possibly playing a game too.
There are a couple of companies that do the cloth diaper party thing, but I like the diaper options best in the "booty in a box" from Cloth Diaper Superstore. I have never done anything like this before, so please share any advice or ideas you have for making this the most fun it can be. Thanks!


  1. I have never heard of this! Sounds like fun, and I'm gonna check your links out :)

  2. Sound like fun! I wish I lived near you so I could come:)
    You could tie your cloth wipes with a ribbon and use a diper pin on top. I love the old looking diaper pins even though I don't use them.

  3. My interest is in adult sized cloth diapers. Any of those in the box?

  4. Melissa- thanks for the idea about the diaper pin on the wipes! I have two packs, and I only occasionally use one. I'm thinking I'll have cloth wipes sets for the first five people to RSVP or something like that... otherwise it could be too many to make, or I might not have the right amount. And a wet bag as a random prize! This is really fun to plan!
