About

  • 2015: We gained more international events! 7,441 participants joined together at 280 events in 19 countries-Australia, Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Iceland, Ireland, Malaysia, Mexico, the Philippines, Peru, Puerto Rico, Spain, South Africa, and the USA.
  • 2014: This year marked the first time we had qualifying events on 6 different continents while breaking the world record yet again. This time, 18 countries qualified with 188 events and 8,459 babies changed. 3 more countries and 82 other cities participated with non-qualifying events.  ALL succeeded with raising awareness about cloth diapers in their communities!

  • 2013: GCDC participants from 15 countries, spread across 5 continents, successfully set the current Guinness World Record of 8,301 babies changed at one time. Our overall total of 10,029 participants marked our highest number yet of individuals joining together to raise cloth diaper awareness in their local communities and around the world.
  • 2012:  We successfully broke the record we set in 2011 on Saturday, April 21, 2012 with 8,251 qualifying participants at 189 locations on 4 continents!
  • 2011: A Guinness World Record was set for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously with 5,026 participants at 127 locations in 5 countries. The total number of participating hosts (not all qualified for the GWR) reporting were 203 with 6,363 participants from 10 countries!  $5,167 was donated to the Real Diaper Association.
  • History:  Judy Aagard’s desire to celebrate Earth Day by hosting a family event for the Tiny Tots community quickly morphed into a dream to set a Guinness World Record for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously.  Shortly thereafter, The Great Cloth Diaper ChangeSM 2011 was conceived and organized by a small group of cloth diaper enthusiasts that were eager to demonstrate that cloth diapers are a real option for today’s families.
The initial plan was to develop an infrastructure for any cloth diapering fan in North America to be able to get involved in, either as a participant or an organizer. Word quickly traveled across the oceans and it was soon evident that cloth diapering has a formidable following not just in North America but around the world. Several countries hosted GCDC 2011 locations even though for some it meant getting up in the middle of the night to do so.

Cloth diapering is alive and well!  More to come as our story unfolds!
