At gDiapers we’ve always believed that small acts can add up to big change. Over the past four years, the Big Latch On has shown how a grassroots, community-based event can get global fast. A Big Latch On event is simple—a group of women come together at a registered location to ‘latch on’ (breastfeed) their babies at a set time and raise their hands to be counted. Friends are made, fun is had, and every year breastfeeding records are broken. It’s fun and simple, but powerful.

Introducing the Love Me Collection.
With a bold stamp of Loved, the new Love Me gPants and tees artfully declare the critical desire of our hearts. From the moment we are born we all want, and need, to be loved. But for families battling hunger, poverty and disease, it can be a struggle to provide that need, which hinders babies’ ability to thrive. A portion of each sale of the specially-designed Love Me gPants and tee will benefit Hands to Hearts International, an organization recognized by the Fetzer Institute as an “an exemplar of love”. Hands to Hearts International is improving the health and development of vulnerable children by training caregivers in early childhood development and nurturing parenting skills. It is through their efforts that love is flourishing in the world’s most volatile regions, and babies who once were at risk, are now thriving.

The gDiapers gMum/gDad program: A brief history.
There was a time before facebook. We scarcely remember it, but evidence is strong that it did exist. A time when “social media” meant getting together with friends over coffee, sharing the news with our mouths and not our smartphones. It was in this time that early gDiapers customers reached out to our tiny team and said “I love gDiapers. How can I help?” And so we printed brochures and had t-shirts made, we boxed them up and walked them to the post office, we shipped them out, and said with sincere gratitude and wonder “Thanks so much! Tell your friends!”
The gMum/gDad program was born.

It started in Portland. A playdate for local parents and babies at gHQ. Then you jumped in and said “We want that, too!” And we replied with “Totally. Let’s do this.” And so you worked together to create meet-ups in your neck of the woods, all of them under the simple name of “gTea”. You took the initiative to get to know your community off of facebook and into a park. You gathered your friends, your family, and people you had never even met and you put together gTeas in places like Illinois, Alaska, London, Texas, Michigan, Virginia, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Ohio, California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Iowa, Idaho, North Dakota and Alberta, Canada.
