TN and tiny tooshie

Well, due to the weather we have to stay in today. It has been pouring rain since 6am. He loves it when his daddy comes home for lunch. Thank you for letting us be a part of the WW Fluff Adventure. Zachary got to wear his rocket ship legg'ns with his diaper. How appropriate! I was hoping he would be walking by now so hecould really show off his diaper, but I will take pulling up anytime.

Rachel and Zachary in TN

Thanks for participating in the Fluffy Love!

The Sniff Test

When Jen in GA got the diaper she thought it smelled fantastic and asked for the previous wearer's laundry secrets. Here they are for one and all!
I use bac-out in the pre-rinse and Crunchy Clean in the wash cycle. I gotCrunchy Clean from a mama I met on diaperswappers. Here are two links whereyou can purchase it. I usually just contact her and order via email.

Hope that helps. You can get different fragrances...although I am surprised that she could smell anything b/c the smell is usually gone after the wash.My laundry room smells GREAT though. I like a nice smelling laundry room.Maybe the smell came through b/c it was in a package or it could be leftover from the mama before me b/c I used the same bag the diaper came in.You might ask the mama before me what she uses too. :-) Let me know. Iwould be interested in knowing.
As always if you have tips to share, please let me know and I'll post accordingly!


Time in TN

Hi all,
The diaper was visiting TN, but the mama is having problems downloading her pics. :(

I'll try and get a little journal from her, but the diaper is already en route to the next mama.

She does cloth diapers for all of her TRIPLETS!!!

Stay Tuned!

Please check out Super Mommy and Spit Up Boy's website for great giveaways this holiday.

and most of all....

Merry Christmas!

Living it up in Louisiana

Cayden and I had lots of fun while the diaper was with us! We went to The Naval Air Station in Belle Chasse, LA, where daddy works on helicopters. Cayden wore the diaper the whole time, but we weren't allowed to take any pictures :( On the way home though, I decided to take the ferry back across the Mississippi River. We had to stay in the truck, but I got a few photos of the river in the background. This was really an awesome experience and we are SO happy we got a chance with the diaper!
The Morrison Family

Glad you had fun with the diaper. It's on it's way to TN, next!
Love & Holiday wishes,

From TX to LA

Morning All,
The diaper left TX (no post from the mom though) and is now in LA. I'm hoping the more the diaper travels the East Coast, the more moms will post and follow along.

I'm considering setting up a second diaper to see if we can get it to move quickly for the international connections?

Happy Holidays to one and all,


Monday, November 24, 2008


The diaper is visiting in Wylie, TX but the family caught a cold.

So she'll be posting as soon as she can get the family feeling better.
I'll let you know when the diaper moves on to LA.


Sunday, November 16, 2008

Have Spam?

Well. Hmm.
The diaper is in Texas. It arrived to New Braunfels, and visited, but the mom didn't document anything. Bummer.
The diaper shows delivery in Wylie, TX but I'm waiting on an actual confirmation from the next mama.


I think that many of my emails may be headed to your spam folder. So if you're in TX, AR, TN, or LA and don't have an email from me please check there! Or add the email address for Global Fluffy Bum to your contacts. :) I will email you the week before it's set to arrive, if you don't respond in a couple of days, I'll just skip you and push on.

Let's start collecting some pics of your Little Ones in their holiday fluff and I'll add a little photo display to the sidebar of the blog.

Thanks for keep the Fluff alive,

Monday, November 10, 2008


Morning All,
I just wanted to send out a question for you participants.

* How can we keep the diaper moving quicker? It seems to get stuck in for more than a week. The participants aren't replying to emails to either confirm or deny they even got it.

I'm going to be emailing you the week before it is set to arrive to confirm that you would still like to participate. If you don't reply I'm going to skip you and move on?

So until we get a reply from New Braunfels, TX please send any of your cloth questions and we'll get some answers.

Favorite wipe solutions?

Even the Green Grow Quick

Good Morning All,

The diaper arrived safe and sound in San Antonio only to find that the child has outgrown it! All the more evidence to help the diaper move quickly. Please help us spread the love sooner!

It's headed to New Braunfels, TX next.

Stay Tuned!


Monday, November 3, 2008

Soon to arrive in San Antonio

Diaper is currently in San Antonio, TX. They just got it and plan to use it or forward it along ASAP. Please keep checking in and I'll post accordingly.

Bum on Boston

Yes, the bum was on Boston while he and his mama, Aubrea, spent some time with the World Wide Fluff.

When the diaper arrived in Pampa, TX we had some unexpected events going on so we didn't get to have as much fun as originally planned. We finally got to enjoy the fluff and get some shots in while Boston, 18 1/2 months, was playing around in the living room before bath and bed time. Here he is with his favorite toy...his lawn mower.

Thanks, Aubrea! The diaper will now travel to a few more moms in Texas. Pop in and check them out often.


Monday, October 27, 2008

Welcome to the Lone Star State

The diaper has arrived safely in Texas. It will make the rounds between 6 moms before heading east.

As there are more participants living closer to each other in the next few states, I'm hoping it moves quickly!

Thanks for checking in.

The Diaper goes to Derby, KS

Shannon & Reagan got the Diaper. Here's their Halloween Adventures.

Reagan, 13 months, loves playing outside in her bare feet. I think she likes how the cool grass feels on her tiny toes! It always makes her happy. On Saturday night, I thought it would be fun to let her play with her little witch hat and broom while running around outdoors. We have our pumpkins and Mr. Bones displayed, and Reagan has been so excited about the pumpkins ever since we picked them at the pumpkin patch! I bet she'll have a ball on Halloween night!

Glad you enjoyed the time with the World Wide Fluff.
The diaper will spend the next couple weeks visiting 6 moms in Texas! Check in often.

Sitting Pretty in Kansas

Here's the latest from Tanner & Sloan in Kansas.

The weather was cold and rainy the week that we received the diaper, but the sun finally came out on Day 3! We celebrated the beautiful sunshine with Sloane's first trip to a pumpkin patch, and then a visit to our favorite local health food store, Food for Thought, for some yummy, all-natural goodness.

Glad you guys enjoyed your time with the diaper.

From CO to KS

Hi Everyone,
The diaper has traveled from San Jose & Concord, CA through WA, AZ, CO and now it's in Kansas.

Stay tuned for the latest updates!

Fluff goes to Colorado!

The World Wide Fluffy Bum travelled to Colorado Springs, CO to visit with Aekley and Stephanie. Here's tidbit and pictures from their adventures.
We were so happy to receive the World Wide Fluffy Bum cover on Thursday, October 9th! (1st photo)

Aekley loves the outdoors, so we decided to take him to the park today to model the cover. It was a wonderful fall day. To show off the cover and our beautiful state, we took these photos of Aekley with Pikes Peak in the background. (2nd and 3rd photos)
Colorado Springs, CO

Thanks for the great pics! Glad you guys enjoyed your time with the Fluff.
The diaper is headed to Kansas and then Texas. Keep checking in!

Why did you choose cloth?

Hi Everyone,
The World Wide Fluff is currently on a mail truck making its way through Colorado. While we wait for the delivery, I thought I'd ask another cloth question.

Besides saving the world, one landfill at a time, what made you choose cloth? Why did you choose the style of diaper that you did?

We chose cloth because of the cost savings. Big difference in our small budget. Plus, we got a great stash for $100 and thought it couldn't hurt to try out pockets & prefolds!


Wednesday, October 8, 2008

Wishing...and hoping...

Thanks for your continued patience. The diaper had a small (week long) hold up but looks to be back on track soon. I will keep you posted as soon as it arrives at its next destination in Colorado.

Please remember that the quicker the turnaround, the more mamas that get to use it.

Crawling in Cloth

Hi Mamas,
This is a somewhat selfish post. I'm looking for a new AIO/Fitted/Pocket in large sizes for Baby B. (I'm spoiled as the stash I bought before he was born had us set from newborn through medium.) He's getting close to crawling and I'm looking to invest in some additions for our stash. We've got some bG's and prefolds that I use but I'd like another 1/2 dozen of something that will let him wiggle without leaking.

What's your best diaper for crawling?


ps. We are still waiting for the WWFluff to arrive from AZ to CO. I'll keep you posted as I know more.

Saturday, October 4, 2008

Waiting and the wash...

While we wait for the diaper to arrive at the next destination, let's talk cloth.

I figure we'll start on some mellow and not controversial.

What's your wash method? We're using bG's and prefolds. (grew out of our HH and await the budget go ahead before we try some GAD's) We toss everything into the wash (hot/cold) with a Planet detergent. No pre-rinse...but Baby B is just now starting solids, so I think the pre-rinse is in order shortly. Then we line dry (as much as we can with the rainy season approaching) with a light tumble dry (10 minutes) to fluff if needed.

Anyone tried the liners?

Post your wash method and let's chat!

Arizona Update

Here's the adventures the World Wide Fluffy Bum had while in Arizona, courtesy of Stephanie.

We had lots of fun showing off the diaper. Too bad our camera decided not to work and can not retrieve the pictures of it. We had it on for brother's T-ball practice and took lots of pics crawling. We also took pics standing on our lil tykes slide and standing in all the diapers in the store. It was lots of fun. Now if we can get the camera to work, we'd love to share our smiles.

Thanks, Stephanie!

Saturday, September 27, 2008


The diaper had its most recent adventure in Arizona. But the mom has technical difficulties with her camera.
The Fluff will move on to the next mama in Colorado next week, with pics from AZ posted as soon as we get them.

Please remember that this diaper adventure will work best if we are diligent about keeping it to a quick turnaround. Otherwise half the kids will outgrow the diaper before it arrives. Thanks in advance for your continued support in keeping the fluff going!

Airing it in Arizona

The diaper is safe in AZ awaiting its next wearer.

We'll keep you posted with pics ASAP.

Limbo Land

Morning Readers,
Thanks for continuing to check in. I really do appreciate all the feedback and 'visits'. The diaper is in a PO Box waiting for a mom to pick it up, then be put to great use with journals and photos. I'm hoping that we can move the diaper faster in the future. If you're planning on being out of town/away from your mailbox in the week before it is set up to arrive to you, let me know and I'll arrange for it to double back to you.

Thanks again for your patience.

Sunday, September 7, 2008

WA to NM

The diaper should be on the road again....can't wait for it to get on the road again!

We got a mom in New Mexico then Arizona to Colorado. Then to two moms in Kansas and 6 in Texas. If you are in any of those's going to be there before you know it!

Thanks for checking in everyone!


Thursday, September 4, 2008


Apologies everyone! We're trying to get the fluff back on the road after a small snag. I promise to do my best to keep it moving smoothly and keep everyone updated.

Last Day in California

Bam bam and I had fun with the fluffy bum today! Here it is sitting with our stash (please excuse the stained instert below!!) He wore it over a tiny tush one size (which you can see didn't quite fit over completely).

But, first we played with trains! Yeah for GeoTrax!

Then after covering the fluffy bootie we went and fed the ducks but they got a little too close and had to be taught their manners!!

We then headed off to the park where Bam bam played on the stucture but refused to go down the slide...... even for Daddy!!!!

We finished off our 'wear' of the fluffy bum with a nap! Thanks for letting us share in the fun!!

Sarah & Bam Bam!

We're just waiting to post the latest pics & journal before the next rotation.

I'll make sure to update as soon as I get the information.

Day 2 of the World Wide Fluffy Bum

Today was a big day for the diaper. Not only did it have to hold up to a toddler, but it had to hold up to a park playdate. We went with a 'Under the Nile' fitted underneath the WWFluffy Bum.

We headed off to a park playdate, this time to a local park with a pint sized train and kid carousel, a real jet for them to climb all over and loads of playgrounds. I love the way my son likes to strut in the house in just his diapers but as soon as we are packing up to leave, he HAS to wear something over them. 'Butt, Mama....Don't look my butt.' Here are some of our pics, before, during and after the diaper. I just love the look of cloth diapers on a clothesline.
Allrighty, then! Our days with the diaper are done! I'm off to the laminators for the final step of the directions. Then to the post office to send it to the next mama! In the event that the popular chain copy store has laminating issues, I'll keep you guys posted.

Baby B's Day Out in the Diaper

Yesterday was Baby B's turn to wear the diaper to his 'playgroup'. Okay do 4month olds really play at the playground? No. But it was a great chance to take the diaper out and get some pics.

We are wearing a prefold under the World Wide Wrap and we had to wear pants over it because it was cool in the morning when we left. Here's the diaper all super cute before we got dressed.

We didn't do a whole lot besides chat and eat snacks while the toddlers tore up the playground. But Baby B was in the swing at the park for the first time!

We came home and he played in the saucer while I made lunch. Then it was wash time so Big Brother could wear it today.


Stay Tuned...Tuesday Big Brother wears it to the toddler playdate!

Diaper is here!

Morning All,

This is just a quick picture of the diaper before the kids start wearing it. I got it yesterday in the mail and it is awesome. I'm taking it to my local CD get together today to try and get some moms to try it!

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Diaper is DONE!!!

Check out Jill's site (Smarty Pants) to see pics of the completed diaper!

It looks fantastic!

Diaper is on its Way!

Morning All~

The diaper (courtesy of A Baby Connection ) is done with embroidery (courtesy of Smarty Pants) and on its way to the West Coast! There's only 5 participants this side of Texas so it will be quickly headed back to you guys on the East Coast. Remember to check in for daily updates, pics and adventures.

Please spread the Fluffy Word!

30 Locations and counting

We've got 30 domestic listings and 3 in Canada.


It's going to be fun to see where this goes.

Stephanie from A Baby Connection and Jill from SmartyPants have donated the diaper and embroidery for our World Wide Fluffy Bum. Please recommend them to all your friends for your cloth diapering needs.

I'm working on formatting the directions so they will fit on a small enough card to travel with the diaper but still be user friendly.

Keep passing the work along and we'll watch this cloth adventure grow!


Monday, July 28, 2008

Update for late Monday Night

Alright guys, here's the latest updates.

  • The diaper and embroidery have been donated by our great WAHM's.
  • I've got 11 addresses in the USA & 1 international
  • If you're a Canada Mama and want to join, please still send me your info and after the diaper makes the rounds domestically we'll mail int'l next.
  • I've emailed all of the people that expressed interest last week and were clickable on the BBC. As always, please don't hesitate to let me know if you've already sent the info or if I forgot to request if from you.
  • If you are still intersested but got no email from me, CLICK ME!!! I'm happy to add loads of new addresses to the list.
  • I'll try and figure out the map feature on the blog so we can track it.
  • Let me know if you guys think of anything I'm forgetting....spread the word, the more people involved the more amazing this will be.


Instructions (so far...)

Serena~Awesome news about Jill @ SmartyPants. WAHOO! I also contacted Jennifer @ EmiBeans to see if she would be interested in donating a diaper. But let Jill know that we're open to whatever her WAHM friend is willing to do for our cause. I don't have any problems with the moms who donate product/service promoting their biz. I think it's fantastic.!

Okay, here's what I've got on directions so far:

"Congratulations! You're the next recipient of a cloth diaper on its adventure around the world. Although this is an All in One Bum Genius/EcoNappi diaper, for sanitary and longevity purposes please use as a cover only. The One Size diaper is designed to snap smaller or unsnap for larger babies as needed. We've got a great blog going about where the diaper has been so far so enjoy your three day visit!

Included in this package:
Diaper, Instruction Sheet, Atlas

Before use:
The mama before you should have prepped the diaper but if you feel the need to wash/dry again, please see the directions under "After use".

During use;
Please document what you're doing. Take pics, jot down some ideas, be creative. We'd love to see it.

After use:
Please wash and dry in a cloth diaper friendly solution. (Detergent should have no perfumes, dyes, brighteners. Then hang dry to prevent velcro chains and get in some sun brightening).
Contact Hally via email to receive the address for the next mama in The Adventure. You are responsible for mailing the diaper USPS to the next mama, along with the instruction card & atlas.'

Diaper donated by *****, Embroidery donated by Smarty Pants on Hyena Cart. Contact Hally with questions and to post your diaper journal via email : or the blog site

What do you think?

Sunday, July 27, 2008

A list of ideas?

Hi Mamas,
Here's the blog. It's pretty sparse, but not for long! We'll add tons of pics, links and fun stuff as we go. I'd like to start by asking you all for ideas on what to include with the diaper's package. I was thinking we can set up the map on Blogger to show where the diaper has been, but if you'd like to still include an atlas we can do that too? I'm going to format some basic instructions and laminate it on a small card. Leave a comment on anything you'd like to include!
