RATTLEDFLYER1-2

Have you ever imagined sharing the first year of your life with a newborn with the world?  Here is your chance!  TLC (The Learning Channel) asked us to share their casting call for couples expecting a child in the next few months. There is no exact deadline, as babies have their own timeline but they are looking for families due after mid-May. Please see the information below if you are interested in finding out more and check out the show at tlc.com/rattled.

  TLC is now casting a docu-series that tells the stories of new parents as they navigate diapers, 4 AM feedings and everything in between. We are looking for heartfelt and compelling stories about the unforgettable journey of becoming parents and would like to share the experiences of unique families as they plan to welcome their first born into the world.  If you and your partner are currently expecting and want to share your story, please contact us at castingdirector@magilla.tv along with your names, ages, location, occupations, phone number, due date and a few sentences about your story.

Just in time for Earth Day, come and help celebrate and spread awareness of cloth diapering in our community! Join us, April 23, 10am-1pm, at Smith Memorial Playground, Philadelphia, for our 6th annual Great Cloth Diaper Change.

Free food and coffee, provided by such local businesses as Weaver’s Way and High Point Cafe, are just one of the bonuses of the event. The day includes activities for kids such as mini music and yoga classes.

For the first time, we will have tables by local vendors, including Backyard Boutique Photography, Philly Kids T-shirts, Infinity Bibs, Potty Schmotty, Give a Gnome a Home (needle felted friends), and more!

One of the highlights of the day is the always popular raffle items, with prizes ranging from cloth diapers, baby carriers, to class passes or photography sessions.  Profits from these raffles help fund the education and outreach of The Real Diaper Association.  Register here ahead of time and receive one FREE raffle ticket!

At 11 am sharp, we will change our babies’ cloth diapers in an attempt to break last year’s record of 7,441 world-wide participants. Bring all your little ones for this fun, free family event.

The Franklin Institute will be hosting The Philadelphia Science Fair next to us, making this an event for everyone!

(Diaper) Bag of a Lifetime

Comments Off on (Diaper) Bag of a Lifetime

IMG_6112 (1)

So, a guy walked into a bar… Or in this case, a baby store. About a year ago, a man walked into the store with a prototype of a diaper bag. Jesse told us his story of being a stay at home dad and that he had created the bag design and sewn the sample himself. He wanted our thoughts on the design and if we would change anything. We loved the look of it, gave him our feedback, said we would love to sell it, and off he went.  

To our surprise (because you never know how life goes and we see a lot of samples!) we received in the mail about a month ago, a finished, ready to sell bag. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product and are really calling this the (Diaper) Bag of a Lifetime. 

Not only does this bag have a removable changing pad in the back, under a fold out flap for floor protection, there are so many compartments, you can keep everything organized. It is big enough to use as a weekend bag or carry your tech, once the kids are our of diapers. Made of waxed canvas, brass and leather, this bag will hold up until your kids are old enough to want it for themselves!

For more information or to order the bag, please visit our website.
