I am so excited to announce this challenge/giveaway. After the last Thirsties giveaway, I had so many of you write me and say, “I want to try to cloth diaper, I just don’t know where to begin.” I know I was so overwhelmed by choices, the unknown of cloth, and the “What about travel, overnights, cleaning, costs?” that I almost didn’t do it. I’m so glad I did. Most of my readers know I adore cloth diapers. I want everyone to understand how much fun they can be, how great they are for everyday use, and how much better they are for the environment than disposables.
I contacted Thirsties to tell them I wanted to do a whole segment on cloth diapering, and could they offer any advice? Not only did they – here’s where my head explodes in excitement – they offered to provide an amazing prize to one of you!
Wanna know what it is? Of course you do.
A Thirsties Gift Bundle, which consists of :
– FIVE Duo Diapers in your choice of size (which offer the same ease of use as disposables. Dads love them; great for everyday, overnights and travel)
– two packs of Fab Wipes in your choice of colors (to wipe away the mess)
This entire bundle retails for around $170! It’s the perfect way to add to your stash, or to get a great start at cloth diapering.
Yes. I just heard heads around the world exploding as well. The Duo Diaper alone is worth entering for, as this little number is a hot commodity with Dads and daycares. Five of them and a host of other Thirsties goodies is almost unreal. I’m actually a little jealous of who ever wins this. 🙂
