Did anyone see Oprah interview Gwyneth on Friday I think? Gwyneth read a poem/rap that her hubby wrote for her. In it, he said that he would help get the diapers (nappies) ready for the washing machine. Gwyneth looked up after that part with a confused look on her face... obviously, her dh was talking about cds... and she didn't get it! AGGGHH. I would so love a dh that helped with cd laundry... what a waste. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry">

I caught that! I never watch Oprah but that day I caught it!<br><br>
Kudos to her for NOT hiring a nanny like most celebrities do!!

do you know if she ended up cloth diapering? It wouldn't surprise me, she admitted on Oprah that she is a "breastfeeding dork" (aren't we all? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">) and eats everything organic. She might not want chemicals around her baby's bum.

The look on her face, made me think she doesn't cloth diaper. But, I rarely watch Oprah, and I didn't watch all of this show, either, so if anyone knows?

I got the distinct impression that she didn't quite 'get' the nappies in the washing machine thing...my guess is she's a sposie user.<br>
At least she's breastfeeding.<br>
Her daughter is so cute!

I sometimes give my dh <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> looks when he makes statements like (before the baby is born) "I need to rest up so I can help during the night after the baby comes." Um, he doesn't do squiddly-doowop during the night w/ the baby. In his defense, he's a great dad, very hands-on, does diaper laundry <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> cooks all the meals, etc. So I'm in no-way-no-how criticizing my dh... but the idea that he's getting up with a baby is ridiculous.<br><br>
Maybe GP was just smirking b/c her dh's comment was silly b/c he doesn't do diaper laundry and she was grimmacing b/c on national (international) TV he was making himself out to be uber-husband. kwim?<br><br>
As much as GP is into her special diets, yoga, etc... I would actually be more shocked to find out they are using disposibles. It doesn't fit with her ethos.

Maybe it was the word NAPPIES that threw her off... Wouldnt it be AWESOME to have a celebrity make a purchase from your little WAHM shop?? I WOULD totally >FREAK OUT< if I did!! Wonder if all the celeb fans would start shopping at your store too?!?!?!<br><br>
Whoa!! What a thought!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I was just reading (in a women's mag I picked up at work to read on night about 3 AM <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: ) that Kevin Bacon and his wife cd'ed. I wouldn't be surprised at all if there were a number of cd'ers in the 'Hollywood enviro crowd'. In the past a few of the WAHM's have said they have had purchases from celebrities, though didn't specify who bought!

I can probably count on one hand....since dd was born that I did <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wash.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wash">:. Dh has been right there! Even every day since *some* one is growing so fast out of her diaper and her mama is shopping every day to keep up!<br><br>
sounds like another diaper down....the water guy better get us up and running...its about time again....

OT-- I watch part of the after the show on Oxygen yesterday. They showed GP cooking and talking up organics in context to bf and trashing trans fats. She sounds very knowledgible on nutrition and seems to eat a varied omnivore diet.

I wonder, can I send fan mail in the form of a diaper? I can embroider the message right onto the bum. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> :LOL It'd be great if these Hollywood types chose to support WAHMs instead of fancy French boutiques lol.

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Coldplay star Chris Martin has formed a group in honour of his new baby daughter - called the Nappies.<br><br>
The rock star, who said he was "900 miles over the moon" when wife Gwyneth Paltrow gave birth to daughter Apple, has recorded a song with the new 'band', in which he sings about cleaning up the baby's "pooh and sick".<br><br>
In a video posted on Coldplay's official website, Chris can be seen dancing around in a long-haired rock wig with his shirt off, singing the song, which he wrote for Gwyneth.<br><br>
He sings: "I'll be there for you, baby, through the thin and the thick/ I'm gonna clean up all the pooh and the sick."</td>

Please let me know of any other celebrities off the top of your head who use them (i don't need any lists -- if you can think of one other one that would be great).</td>

We've got to figure out some way to hook up WAHMs with the celebrity connection.<br><br>
C'mon .... someone here knows someone who knows someone who knows Gwyneth Paltrow - let's start with her!<br><br>
And we've gotta get that Oprah cloth diapering special going again, too.

Allright...but only if they promise to resell on the trading post. :LOL<br><br>
And that they promise *not* to just buy a WAHM for hire so none of the rest of us ever have hope of gettting one of her dipes again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Incidentally, a friend of mine has a friend from high school who is good friends with Gwyneth Paltrow - and they (my friend and GP) were bridesmaids in this friend's wedding together. Dave Matthews was the band at the wedding!
