Padded Tush Stats 2011 Diaper Awards – Voting is NOW OPEN

I am excited to announce that voting is now open for the Padded Tush Stats 2011 Diaper Awards. Please fill out the form below to vote for your favorite diaper, retailer, cloth diaper resource, and cloth diaper accessory of the year.

There will be 8 winners:

(1) Diaper of the Year, (2) Diaper of the Year for Chunky Babies, (3) Diaper of the Year for Skinny Babies, (4) Diaper of the Year for Rash-Prone Babies, (5) Diaper of the Year for Heavy Wetters, (6) Diaper Accessory of the Year, (7) Cloth Diaper Resource of the Year, and (8) Cloth Diaper Retailer of the Year.

Rules (please read):

(a) Only ONE vote per person (b) You may only vote  if you have diapered your baby this last year (see rule “c” for one minor exception) (c) People who are expecting a baby may still vote for the Cloth Diaper Resource and Cloth Diaper Retailer of the year, but not the Diaper or Accessory (since they haven’t had a chance to try it) (d) Nominees are welcome to encourage followers to vote and may vote for categories other than those they are nominated in, but nominees or employees of a nominee’s company may not vote for their company (e) You must be 18 years or older to vote (f) You must provide a Email and a secondary form of online identification for verification purposes–votes without those two items will not be considered. You can Padded Tush Stats on Facebook as one method (this is the preferred method, as it is easier for me to verify). Feel free to “Unlike” after the voting closes and winners are selected (or stay!). Facebook is no way associated with this promotion. (g) Winners will be selected based on total number of votes (h) Ballot is based on nominations collected at Padded Tush Stats in the month of October–no additional nominations will be considered.

Voting closes December 15 at 11:59PST. Happy Voting!


Tara Porter

Tara Porter began using cloth diapers in 2011 when she felt that using disposable diapers was costing too much money. The problem was, a lot of the highly recommended diapers weren’t working for her baby. What she finally discovered was that her baby was skinny and a heavy wetter, and that diapers worked differently for those baby types. Because of her professional work with survey design and statistics, she designed Padded Tush Stats as a way to determine how different cloth diapers worked on different babies.

Tara moved on to other career endeavors in 2014 but can still be found online blogging about health and fitness at Fit Baby Steps.
