Hushamok Dream Package Giveaway {ARV $499}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Ya’ll, I’m still so in love with the Hushamok baby hammock…. a product I used with my own infant son 4 years ago (that I purchased myself… I might add… and posted a review of back then).  When Julie, the creator of Hushamok, asked if DDL could review their new version I was thrilled.  Not only would I get to share about the product here again but Lara would also get the chance to try one of the best baby products I’ve used as a parent.  It’s not bad on the eyes either!  I have a giveaway for you to enter at the end of this post so learn more about the Hushamok and if you think it might be for your family, try and win!

Win a Hushamok

Hushamok began in 2007.  The creators, a husband and wife team, wanted to improve upon the 1,000 year old baby hammock concept they loved.  They wanted to incorporate organic and sustainable materials with a modern and functional baby hammock.  Their dream came to life and has been serving parents for 7 years!

laraquote

Lara explained in her Hushamok review how it has become a lifesaver in her home.  The leaf spring gives motion from a gentle touch by a parent and the slight incline can aid babies with reflux.  As with any baby product, especially one intended as a sleeping space, parents need to follow the manual (the Hushamok suggest babies no longer use the hammock when they can roll over or when the hit 22 pounds) and follow common sense.   Baby hammocks have been used for centuries by cultures all over the world.  If you as a parent don’t feel comfortable with the idea of a hammock then it isn’t for you.  I slept directly next to my son when he used his hammock and having him so close and being able to reach over to bounce the hammock and soothe him from bed was a definite bonus.  The set weighs in at around 11 pounds and can move from place to place around the house or can be disassembled for travel.

hushamokinroom

In the past 2 years I have been obsessed with furnishing my home.   The Hushamok can blend in with a modern aesthetic such as mine, a home full of mid century modern furniture, but it blends just as well in a traditional home.  The Okoa stand has an organic feel while the Dream aluminum stand is more utilitarian but has a modern feel.   It looks lovely in Lara’s newly made-over master bedroom!  As Autumn gets older Lara can add the My Seat and either girl can use it in a reading nook.   Even I can fit in the My Seat and have sat in it many times… it’s quite comfortable!

WIN IT!

One lucky DDL reader will win a Dream Hammock and Aluminum Stand of their own, a $499 value.   The giveaway is open to residents of US and Canada and ends January 3, 2015.  Please enter using the Rafflecopter form.  Good luck!

Kissing Blake Hybrid Fitted Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Like a lot of you, Lara has a heavy wetter so hybrid fitteds like the Kissing Blake we just posted a review for are a great option!  The hidden fleece hold in more wetness and the super heavy bamboo fleece soakers will hold it all!

Screen Shot 2014-11-12 at 4.19.11 PM

If you’re dying to try one you definitely want to try your luck on winning!  Kissing Blake posts often on their  Facebook page about stockings, new fabric choices, embroidery options, and more so you’ll WANT to follow their Facebook page to keep track.  When entering the giveaway please visit the page and hit the like button!  I was perusing their photos section (something I really love doing on WAHM pages because I get a great idea for their style and options since so many post their diapers as they come off the sewing machine) and above you can find many examples- my favorite print would have to be the one on the bottom left.  Several have a Lisa Frank feel to them- it’s bringing me back!

Enter to win below- the winner will get to choose the fabric used for their diaper from in-stock fabric and they’ll also get 2 free wipes.  This one is open Worldwide (but if you win outside of the US or Canada you may be responsible for shipping fee).

Thirsties *NEW* All-in-One is here! {Giveaway too!}

This post may contain affiliate links.

In usual DDL style lately I’m not ready to publish the video for the new Thirsties AIO (quality takes time dahlings) but I do have a few photographs to share and a giveaway for you until that review/video is up and running.  My whole life is one big long to-do list lately so I’m really sorry for not being on the ball with these new releases already!

I got to see the new Thirsties One Size All-in-One at ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas a few months ago and was so excited about the simplicity of it all and how it fit so nicely with the Thirsties product line.  I love Thirsties products already, their covers are of course some of the best in the industry, and they have com a long way in bringing more innovation and styles to their customers like this AIO.

thirstiesAIO

  • 40% more absorbent and dries 3 times faster than the Duo All In One
  • Convenient, trim fitting, and absorbent
  • Goes on in one simple step – cloth diapering doesn’t get easier
  • One size diaper provides a customizable fit for most babies from birth to potty
  • 4 total layers of absorbent microfiber terry, a microfleece liner and a reliable waterproof exterior
  • Available with hook & loop or NEW snap configuration with two rows of snaps
  • Gentle elastic around legs and waist provide protection against leaks
  • Stay-dry microfleece liner provides wetness protection

thirstiesaio2

While this AIO doesn’t have bells and whistles and a ton of additional absorbency options like some, you can easily lay microfiber or natural fiber inserts beneath the tongue if you need them for overnights, naps, or heavy wetters.  I like that it is a trim fitting AIO for those of us who don’t need a ton of absorbency though it is actually more absorbent than it appears!

Enter below! US only. Ends October 29th. Good luck!

HUGE Wool Dryer Balls Giveaway from Smart Sheep- 4 winners!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Even if you don’t cloth diaper anymore or haven’t started just yet you will want to enter this giveaway from Smart Sheep!  Why?  Because you can use wool dryer balls on all your clothing and linens to expedite their drying time and soften your clothes naturally without dryer sheets or fabric softeners.  Smart Sheep sells extra large 100% Premium New Zealand Wool Dryer Balls with no fillers.  The jury is still out on whether bigger is better but IMO from using several brands I do like the larger dryer balls best and grab those bigger balls first.

Screen Shot 2014-10-21 at 9.18.00 AM

Benefits of using wool dryer balls include shortening dryer time (use 3 balls for small/med load, 5-6 for large) and Smart Sheep dryer balls last a thousand-plus loads so even though it may seem like a large investment you won’t need to re-buy them anytime soon.  Well, you might if you keep losing them or the kids get ahold of them to play… that happens.  Smart Sheep sell their dryer balls on Amazon and so many of us do our shopping there that it’s easy to add them to your cart next time you’re placing an order if you haven’t taken the dryer ball plunge yet.

Last year I did a video experimenting with wool dryer balls and even recorded the sound they make in the dryer since that is one of the most asked questions.  You can watch that video on YouTube to find out!

smartsheepgiveaway

Feeling lucky?  You should be because the odds are pretty good!  4 winners will each win a set of 6 dryer balls which is plenty to cover all sizes of laundry.  If you’re like me you tend to overfill your washer/dryer so I use quite a few. Enter using the Rafflecopter below. Winners have 48 hours to claim their prize after being emailed.

MommyCon Schedule Newport Beach

MommyCon Newport Beach CA- Halloween Party and Admission Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links.

I’m a tad bit jealous that some of you mamas in California will get to party at MommyCon’s Halloween Bash on October 31 then have a full day at the actual conference.  Until MommyCon comes to Orlando in May (I’ll be attending that one, it’s super close this time) I’m going to live vicariously through you!  Lara attended the Memphis location and wrote about her experience for DDL not long ago!

This year the Newport Beach MommyCon is throwing a family friendly Halloween Bash October 31, the night before the main event.  If you plan on attending you’ll need to hit up Pinterest for fun babywearing costume ideas!

The following day on Saturday will start at 9:30 with what else but a Cloth Diapering 101 with Jenn Labit of Cotton Babies.  The Leaky Boob is at 10:30, I can’t say enough nice things about Jessica and her balanced approach to breastfeeding advocacy.  And of course Jamie Grayson, TheBabyGuyNYC, will be presenting his “Don’t Buy Things That Suck” session at 11:15.   All three of those sessions are hosting by baby industry super stars and you’d be crazy to miss them if you can attend.  There will also be babywearing sessions, a Sex After Baby talk, baby food making, Car Seat Safety session with Clek, and sleep consultations all day.  You can view the full schedule below to get an idea of what is in store.

PLUS I heard the Cloth Diaper Resource Center is pretty awesome and there will be several brands represented who can help answer your questions in person- that is awesome because most of us never get the chance to chat with experts like that.

MommyCon Schedule Newport Beach

If you are within a few hours of this event definitely enter to win General Admission and a pass to the Halloween Party!  If you aren’t local to this MommyCon you can stay in the know about future locations by liking their Facebook page.    If you don’t win you can find information on ordering tickets at their website.

This is a super quick and easy giveaway and ends October 20.  Goooood luck!

Bummis Duo-Brite Package Giveaway! {9/29}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Since we recently reviewed the Bummis Duo-Brite system we thought it would be a great idea to run a giveaway with it!  Lara gave the Duo-Brite very high marks and it scored well all around.  Make surey ou view her review and the video demonstration of the Bummis Duo-Brite.

Bummis Duo-Brite

Bummis is known for their high quality covers and prefolds but have recently decided to expand their line into new categories, something that makes this Bummis fan very very happy!  The Duo-Brite brings Bummis into the All-in-Two category and the cover still works with prefolds or covers as well!  The fact that this cover is wipeable is also a huge bonus since it is easier to reuse more times when changing out the inserts.

The Duo-Brite is also a dual sized system and comes in Size 1 or Size 2.  What is unique is how they have tailored the cover design to best work for each size- size 1 has a single row of snaps and size 2 has two rows to best fit older babies and toddlers.

The snap-in inserts have been carefully and expertly designed to make the most of the materials and to work using either side!  One side is a stay-dry topped insert covering a proprietary ZORB, and the other is organic cotton.  No male snaps will touch baby’s skin and the insert fully covers the belly panel for the most absorbtion.  The center line of stitching has a few functions- it allows both layers to get cleaner and dry faster, and pull moisture towards the center to distribute which is aided by the wicking jersey in the middle.

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to meet with the brands at various expos or events.  I’ve gotten to know the two women behind Bummis and have heard first-hand information about their new products.  I know the lengths Bummis goes through to keep their products made in Canada, their commitment to domestically milled fabrics, and their passion for cloth diapers and keeping babies healthy.  The Duo-Brite is a new product I can’t wait for others to try so make sure you enter this giveaway and hopefully you can see how amazing it is!  And as much as this sounds like a paid endorsement, it isn’t, I just can’t hide my true love!
