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.
Brian and Elsa are soon-to-be first-time parents who hail from the Instagram-worthy state of Maine. As the days tick up to their due date, waiting has taken a front row seat by the woodstove in their 800-square foot cabin. “While we may be mediocre at preparation, at least we’ve got anticipation down.” The anticipation has looked a bit like this:
Carrie, Cooper and big sister, Hattie, have recently welcomed a brand new adventurer to the family! Baby Hobbes arrived fashionably early, a week ahead of schedule. Just as Cooper was readying to set out with a friend for the inaugural day of hunting season, Carrie’s water broke. It was game on, (just not the game that Cooper had intended for the day!).
Hobbes’ brand new bum has been comfortably covered with the newborn gPants since day one. And though it’s too cold now to compost, the disposable inserts are flushable, which means with 6-8 changes a day (or a package a week), the garbage can isn’t overflowing.
You know that video that makes you go “aww…” and “cool!” and makes your heart swell just a little and compels you to hit share? We hope this one gets you that way. Cause it sure got us that way. Which is why we’re hitting share right here. Because with so many changes a day, diapering should be a beautiful ritual.
What kinds of videos would you like to see from gDiapers? Leave a comment. We’re always open to suggestion. Plus, making videos is pretty dang fun.
There’s not a whole lot that you can predict with babies. At least not with complete accuracy. At some point baby will crawl. At some point baby will smile. And at some point a first little white tooth will come blazing through. You just don’t know exactly when. So even though the timing of things are most certainly uncertain, there’s one thing on which you can rely: baby will poop. And we’re here to ready you for that very specific thing that babies do so often.
Just like you, gDiapers are ready for anything. So here’s the scoop on poop.
