A quick post to share an exciting new offering at the Earth Day Festival this year (4/28, downtown Indy, 11-4pm).<br><br>
Our group, IndyAP, is developing & staffing a tent which will house a changing station & space for nursing mamas who want to chill out for a bit. (Last I heard we will be in a tent next to the children's tent.)<br><br>
This was made possible by our sponsor, Toasty Baby, <a href="http://www.toastybaby.com" target="_blank">http://www.toastybaby.com</a> . The owners of Toasty Baby have committed to paying for all fees and supplies associated with this wonderful service!<br><br>
We will be distributing information about our group, AP in general, and practices such as cloth diapering & babywearing.<br><br>
While supplies last we will also be sharing free samples of eco-friendly disposable diapers.<br><br>
So, if you're going to be at the ED festival, please come by our tent...change a diaper, nurse a wee one and/or just come and chat with some really wonderful AP-mamas!<br><br>
Need more info on the festival? <a href="http://earthdayindiana.org" target="_blank">http://earthdayindiana.org</a><br><br>
Want more info about IndyAP? PM me

Adding to what Mary wrote here...<br><br><b>Baby Wearing Demos:</b> Most of us mamas who are participating in staffing the tent will be doing baby wearing demos. We are bringing our own wraps and slings and you can get some hands-on practice if you are interested in trying something out!<br><br><b>WAHMs Coupons:</b> Also, we will have information about some of our WAHMs and several of them have included discount coupons for the goods and services on the WAHM flyer that we are distributing at Earth Day.<br><br>
We will be setting up an area for <b>Breastfeeding Moms</b> (a couple of chairs and blankets).<br><br>
We are planning to staff our <b>NEW Diaper Changing Station and Hand Washing Station</b> at other events throughout the year with Toasty Baby!<br><br>
Hope you can come check us out!<br><br>

and we will stop by and say HI! You should post on indymoms.com and tell about your booth because I know there are a lot of moms wondering about cloth and wanting to learn more. I know it was hard when I first got started because there is so much info on the net and to see the stuff in real life is so helpful! See ya'll there!

I walked past-lots of mamas-I planned on coming back we just had Quinn, my own mama had the girls but we ended up only being there about an hour....so I didnt make it back. We went to lunch essentially by ourselves...it was joyous!<br><br>
I didnt know YOU were going to be there or I would have tried harder to make it back! Bummer!

Okay, if anyone came by and I met you, remind me who you are <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I had on a skirt with the four elements (earth, air, fire, water) on it and a baby on my back almost the entire time in a watermelon sling.<br><br>
Namaste, Tara

'Twas a great experience! So many wonderful families stopping by. Hopefully it was just the 1st of many years offering this service.
