Punkernoodle Baby is hosting a cloth diapering/Cloth 101 class! We hope to do this quarterly in Seattle, so please help spread the word. Here’s the info:
Hey Mamas and Papas!
Besides feeding, one of the most important (and frequent!) rituals you will experience with your baby is diaper changing. And the way you decide to diaper your baby can have a huge impact on your wallet, your baby’s health and our planet.
And these ain’t your grandma’s diapers! Unlike the sharp pins and plastic pants of yesteryear, today’s cloth diapers are super modern, unbelievably easy and come in dozens of varieties – from organic, hemp and bamboo to fuzzy leopard prints and simple prefolds. Using cloth can make it easier for babies to potty-train and for parents to try the “diaper-free” method that cultures around the globe use successfully.
In Diaper Choices you will:
— Learn the 4 main types of cloth diapers, see several dozen examples and get help identifying the right style for your baby.
— Learn how using cloth diapers can save you thousands of dollars over the course of raising your babies.
— Find out why reusable diapers are better for the environment, and about their impact on water, energy and land resources.
— Learn what Elimination Communication/Diaper-Free method is (no you don’t need a Sixth Sense and tropical climate to do it!), how and when to begin implementing it, and how this wonderful parent-child communication can build confidence and help get babies out of diapers sooner.
When and Where: Saturday, Jan. 31 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Seattle Holistic Center, Wallingford, inside the Good Shepherd Center, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N.
Cost is $20 ($10 of this is redeemable at Punkernoodle Baby, your local Ballard cloth diapering shop, for any products including diapers, clothing and skin care). Payment by cash or check, prepayment by credit card ok.
