The Great Cloth Diaper ChangeLast year, we booked a venue that we thought would hold everyone comfortably, but we were shocked when the room was full and babies just kept arriving! When it was all said and done, we changed 257 babies into a cloth diaper and had the largest Great Cloth Diaper Change event around the globe with about 1000 people in attendance! Were you there?

|30 minutes to go!|
|Not a square inch of floor space left!|
We have already started planning 2013's Great Cloth Diaper Change (Saturday, April 20th at 11am) and can't wait to tell you all about the amazing stuff we have in store for you! If you'd like to know when you can get registered, be sure to sign up for our newsletter!
We Launched a New Print and Two New Colors!
This past year, we also launched two new colors, Peacock (teal) and Phantom (black) and a new print, Preppy (plaid)! The Preppy was so incredibly popular that we actually sold out last week! Thankfully, our next shipment is on its way and we will have enough Preppy for everyone!
|This is literally the last Preppy snap in the building. Send your bid to Ann. ;)|
The new colors and print come in Rumparooz snap and Aplix, Lil Joeys, covers in both newborn and one size, wet bags and pail liners. View the entire collection! Stay tuned... even more new stuff is coming in 2013!
This past year also included some globe trotting adventures for us! We took a trip across the pond to Cologne, Germany for the Kind + Jugend Expo. We made a lot of new friends and had an extremely successful show!
|The Rhine River AKA: Where Julie launched her iPhone off the bridge. Long story.|
|The expo center - bigger than some cities.|
|It's all business in there, we promise.|
The biggest baby gear trade show in the US is the the ABC Kid's Expo and this year it was in Louisville KY. We took a road trip all the way from Colorado to Kentucky and had a fantastic time at the show. While other companies were breaking their booths down, we were still taking orders! We had so much fun seeing our retailers from all over the globe and made a lot of new friends!
|The ABC Crew: Ann, Nate, Julie and Chad|
|Again. Trade shows are ALL BUSINESS.|
