Have you ever hosted or attended a cloth diaper party?

I'm wondering if anyone here has ever hosted or attended a cloth diaper party? I just recently learned about them and I LOVE the idea... so much that I'm seriously thinking about becoming a rep for a company that does them.

The idea is that it's an at home party (like Tupperware, Pampered Chef, etc.). You get to see many different types of diapers and practice diapering with them on dolls. I think this would have been so helpful to me when I first switched to cloth!

So, what do you think? Have you been to one of these? If not, would you ever host one or go to one if you were invited? If I decide to do this, I do have to make a small financial committment, so I would greatly appreciate your feedback and opinions, both positive and negative! TIA

I would go, but probably only because I cloth diaper. I don't know anyone else who does it, or has any interest in it so I think it would be hard for me to schedule parties. But it sounds fun for baby showers and such, where other people could buy the mom to be cloth diapers.

Re: Have you ever hosted or attended a cloth diaper party?

I do them and it's lots of fun. I work through a local boutique. I bring lots of different styles and brands. I have a good representation of prefolds, covers, wool, AIO's,AI2's, fitteds, etc. I also have things like swim diapers, changing pads, other stuff that someone who doesn't cd might still be interested in. I love it. I usually have a good turnout to. One party I did had 9 moms who all cd. I've had parties with maybe 1-2 cding moms, but everyone else bought swim diapers and changing pads or other non-cd items. I think variety is the key to making it fun for everyone.

I think that would be a great idea! I would be interested in something like that as well and I have never heard of it before!! Around here I think that you could set up at craft fairs and let people see what you have available and that they could have parties as well. What a great idea. If you don't mind me asking, how do you go about doing that? You can pm me if you want.

Have fun and what a great way to get the info out there and let people actually feel and see what they are and how they work!!

Thank you for all of the feedback and opinions! I think I'm going to do it! Anyone know if there are any rules about advertising here on DS?
