Day 3 – My Local Diaper Resource is…

Flats Challenge 2021

May 17 – 23, 2021

Day 3 Topic: My local diaper resource is…

If a family in your community struggled to afford diapers, where could they get diapers?

I want you to find out what agencies supply diapers for young families and where you can refer your friends who might be the 1 in 3 who can’t afford clean diapers. 

This could be a disposable diaper bank or it could be a cloth bank. It could be a local charity group or womens shelter. 

If you don’t have a local resource recognize that. You can also take the moment today to highlight other conversations like national support banks or how to start a diaper bank. I will more information on this coming in the next few months. 

Share a link in the comments to your content – blog, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, or other.

The Flats & Handwashing Challenge is an annual event dedicated to raising awareness about the accessibility of cloth diapering.

I decided to write about my local cloth diaper support superhero – Pearl. She provides cloth diapers to families in my region, and you can learn about it on my Northern BC Specific mom blog – http://www.northernbcmoms.ca/where-to-donate-cloth-diapers-in-northern-bc/

Professional Cloth Diaper Educator

Bailey brings 5+ years of cloth diapering experience and conversation to the cloth diaper space. She's not just your every day mom blogger sharing her experience - Bailey is immersed in the cloth diaper community learning from other parents and growing as an individual. She wants to find the cloth diaper solution that truly works for you.

Bailey believes we need to stop and listen to cloth diapering parents. We need to recognize our own bias and preferences and focus on solutions that work for you, not us. The Cloth Diaper community needs to recognize the privilege of being able to cloth diaper, and provide spaces for more conversations and stories.

Cloth diapering is not about rules but about our own strength as parents to do the best we can for our children with the resources available.
