To celebrate Real Nappy Week 2014, Changeworks’ Real Nappy Project is taking part in the Guinness World Record Nappy Changing Challenge, the Great Cloth Diaper Change. The Real Nappy Project is looking to help smash last year’s Guinness World Record of 8,301 babies simultaneously changed into reusable cloth nappies in 15 countries worldwide!

This is the third time that the Real Nappy Project has taken part in this challenge and last year it was the only event in Scotland where the record breaking attempt took place.

Changeworks’ Real Nappy Project would like to invite parents with babies or toddlers who use real nappies, to take part in this fantastic event.

The event will start at 10.30am on Saturday 26 April in the church hall of St John’s Episcopal Church on the corner of Princess Street and Lothian Road, Edinburgh. The record breaking attempt will take place at 11am sharp. St John’s is centrally located on several major bus routes, and there is parking available on nearby Castle Terrace.

To take part you please bring along the following:

  • Your baby or toddler that is up to 39 inches (99 cms) tall (each baby requires one adult nappy changer so, for example, if you have twins you will need two adults)
  • A reusable nappy that is commercially available that you would be happy to change your baby into on the day


After the challenge, parents and babies are invited to stay on for a tea or coffee and a chat. There will be also be good quality second hand nappies on sale at bargain prices and plenty of free tips and advice from the Changeworks stall.

To make this event a big success and help encourage more and more families to use real nappies we need your support!
