I’ve been settling in as a new mommy for a few months now and if there’s one thing I’ve noticed, it’s that we go through a LOT of diapers. All you ladies out there weren’t kidding!
We’re still going strong with pocket cloth diapers (hoping to save some big money) but occasionally our little one gets a gnarly case of diaper rash that requires a slathering of cream and disposables. The last time that happened, we raced through a full pack of diapers in about two days! Talk about expensive.
Sadly, not every mom is in a position to use cloth diapers and many are struggling to keep up with the massive expense of disposables. That’s why I’m so excited to announce that WHNT News 19 is partnering up with RocketCityMom.com this September to collect diapers for local families in need!
“The Great Diaper Drive” will be happening all month long and you’ll see me on-air and on-location… putting the call out for people to join us in this wonderful effort.
You can also donate disposable diapers and wipes at these businesses all month long:
- Manna House – 2110 South Memorial Parkway in Huntsville from 2:00-7:00 p.m. (Monday, Wednesday or Thursday)
- A Nurturing Moment – 7540 Memorial Pkwy SW in Huntsville
- Itty Bitty – 5732 U.S. 431, Brownsboro, AL 35741
- Kidventure – 500 Lanier Road, Ste. D in Madison
- The Little Gym locations – 2124 Cecil Ashburn Dr. SE and 470 Providence Main St NW
- Posh Mommy and Baby, Too! – 7755 Hwy 72 W. in Madison
- WAY-FM – 9582 Madison Blvd. #8 in Madison
Kidventure will also host a Diaper Shower on Sunday, September 8th from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Every child that brings a package of disposable diapers gets in free! There will be refreshments, live entertainment and door prizes.
