Parents make a change for the better

Posted: Friday, Apr 29th, 2011


Hayley Thomas/Paso Robles Press Parents and their children from around the North County, as well as some from out of the area, change their children, all under 39 inches tall, into 100-percent reusable diapers at Kahuna Kids in Paso Robles.


North County moms reached for greatness — and cloth baby diapers — during the Great Cloth Diaper Change Guinness World Records challenge at Kahuna Kids last Saturday.

Official witnesses Mayor Duane Picanco and Cindy Konrad of San Luis Obispo Le Leche League were on hand to witness the momentous event.

About 30 participants pre-registered for the event and several other moms and dads signed up during the day.

“We are proud to host this amazing event to promote the use and acceptance of cloth diapers in today’s world,” said Kahuna Kids owner Kambria Doherty.

“As a cloth mom of two, I have personally experienced the benefit of cloth: We have saved money, waste, resources and have experienced few diaper rashes. It is not the choice for all parents, but should be an option for anyone, which is why we try to educate parents on today’s cloth diapers and how they fit into their families. This event raises that awareness, and we are pleased to be a part of it.”



Beginnings

The Great Diaper Change 2011 was started as a way to show the country and the world that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s families. Initial contacts with Guiness World Records developed the potential to further enhance the cloth diapering movement, while setting a world record. The response has been above and beyond expectations, according to organizers.
