7th Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge - Day 5: Open Topic #flatschallenge




It's Day 5 of the 7th Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge! If you're new to the Challenge, please read more about what's going on this week as families all over the world will be diapering their babies with flat diapers and handwashing for a whole week. Today's topic is open! You are free to share anything you want about the Flats and Handwashing Challenge. A few years ago, my husband wrote a post about his perspective. Have a great DIY? Share that! It's totally up to you! I can't wait to see what everyone shares today!

On a side note, Samuel graduated from his cranial remolding helmet this week! It was a stinky, sweaty three months, but we're so glad to say goodbye to his helmet! How adorable does he look in a flat and no helmet? I love being able to kiss on his sweet head now!

Flats Challenge Cloth Diaper Revival


There are almost 200 families all over the world taking part in the Flats Challenge, some of them have been doing this all 7 years! I love to hear the discussions about how these mamas are changing things up year to year to really challenge themselves. From not using a diaper sprayer, to only using a stash that costs less than $25. Ya'll inspire me! I love your passion! 

So today, I'm going to share some of the posts that have been shared on social media. There's so many great posts out there that there's no way I could highlight them all. You can see more on Instagram.

Day 2 of the #flatschallenge is what's in your stash? Our full time stash is flats anyways so I'll name our stash. We have 18 GMD muslin flats, 24 GMD birdseye flats and 6 bamboo flats. We als9 have about a dozen flannel receiving blankets we've collected and used as flats over tge years. For wipes we use 48 osocozy cloth wipes and spray with kisslauvs diaper lotion potion. Covers include 9 thirties duo wrap, 5 flips, 2 Bummis pull ons, and a Disana wool cover. This may sound like a lot but, we use flats for all kinds of other things (especially the muslins) like for a baby towel, underpaid in changing table, Nursing cover, blankie, and the list goes on. We are to put the cost in this post. This stash was right around 300 dollars but I have way more than I need. Plus, this was purchased over a long period of time and half of the items are currently being used in the 2nd baby! #mygmdbaby #flatsforthewin #bringflatsback
