Charlie Banana, A Fun Competition and a Giveaway

The Great Cloth Diaper Change is in 3 days! Are you going? Find a location near you on the GCDC website.

It’s not just about changing a diaper for a world record.  There are booths, prizes, information and help and best of all—LOTS of other cloth diaper families!!

Diaper Wars! Definition:

Diaper Wars is a private competition created to afford diaper artists a place to “do battle” with other diaper artists to win acclaim for their creativity and presentation of a diaper project. The competition provides a level playing field for novice and accomplished diaper makers. It’s purpose is to celebrate the creativity of sewing diapers, while providing the participants to gain additional exposure for their skills, and where appropriate to promote an entrant’s work at home (WAH) business.


LOVE Diaper Wars! Maybe I’m easy to entertain but this is the best thing to happen in cloth diapers in a long time.  Best = good, non-drama competition!

For the month of April the theme is Spring Has Sprung.  Each month the entries are auctioned off after voting.  The April sponsor of Diaper Wars is Babyville Boutique.  They supplied all entrants with the same materials and each competitor had to design a diaper in a Spring theme.  Babyville Boutique has chosen to donate ALL auction proceeds to Giving Diapers Giving Hope.

Voting ends this weekend so head over to the Diaper Wars Facebook page and “like” your favorite entries.

Have you been to Super Target lately??  Guess what you can buy there?  Charlie Banana diapers!  Charlie Banana easily makes my top 5 favorite cloth diaper list.  They fit my babies well and I’ve used them on a variety of body shapes.

The availability of cloth diapers at a big box store is fantastic for spreading the ease and modernization of cloth diapers.  Another advantage is the ability for you to add them to a baby registry and not overwhelm the gift buyer.  Many people are intimidated by a cloth diaper boutique or online shopping in general.  I’d say most people buy baby gifts from Target!

Charlie Banana sent me a package of the Target Exclusive prints and I could have cried.  I’m always humbled, even after 5 years, of the generosity of brands big and small.  This package is a blessing to me and has already been put to heavy use.

Charlie Banana one-size diapers feature a bra-strap-like adjustable elastic.  The elastic is clearly marked with size settings so you get an even fit on both sides.

Both Finley and Camden have worn Charlie Banana at night with 2 microfiber inserts with no leaks.  And they wear the diapers on the same elastic settings!  I find that humorous.
