Grateful Naturals and Summer Skincare {Giveaway}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Summertime is here and that can often mean there’s a combination of bothersome bugs, sweat, and sun.  Luckily Grateful Naturals has offered up several items from their skincare line that can help!

gracefulnaturalssm

“First time mother, Monica Mayer, has always had a passion for natural products and remedies for herself, and now her son. After researching natural skin care products she realized there was a need for more wholesome ingredients that are non-toxic and pure in essence. We are a local company that is actively engaged in the development of natural skin care products you can safely use on your entire family.

We believe that healthy bodies have beautiful skin, which is your body’s largest organ. Skin is a vital functioning system that protects your body from injury, keeps fluid in and bacteria out. It is your first line of defense against life threatening disease. Sickness in your body can be seen on the skin. That is why healthful living contributes to the condition of the skin.

Grateful Natural’s goal is to promote natural health & well-being through creating a nourishing natural botanical skin care line. Our products are good for the entire family and our planet. Our main purpose is for everyone to replace their toxic skin care products with all natural alternatives. You can feel good about using Grateful Natural’s knowing that the products work well and are made locally in the USA.”

Monica sent a sampler pack my way.  I’m a lip balm junkie so that’s been my new go-to for my chapped lips and the fact that it comes in a tube versus a tin is a bonus.  I enjoy natural lip balms but they do often come in hard to open, sometimes messy tins.  I also appreciate a user friendly natural deodorant.  I have used natural deodorant pastes in the past with great success but one that comes in a stick can be a good introduction for people wanting to switch to a natural deo but not sure about applying with their fingers.  It’s the little steps.

Grateful Naturals does sell a cloth safe  natural diaper balm, of particular interest to readers here, and it comes in the same user friendly stick.

You can enter to win a Summer Skincare Kit with All natural sunscreen, deodorant, and bug repellent from Grateful Naturals! (products in graphic not identical to prizes winner will receive) This contest is open to US only. Enter using the Rafflecopter below. Thanks to Grateful Naturals for sponsoring this prize for DDL readers!

A Binky D Giveaway for Two!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Already the feedback on our Binky D Hybrid Fitted review has been outstanding!  It’s so great to know there are brands with such loyal fans and that the products are making so many people happy to be using cloth diapers.

binkyDgiveaway

It’s time to reward TWO people for their patronage of DDL and Binky D!  Binky D Diapers is providing two prizes, one in stock item of the winner’s choice and one custom embroidered diaper with their choice of 1 design on the bum!  This giveaway is for two winners, first pulled gets the in-stock choice and the second pulled gets the custom!  If you’re already a fan of Binky D Diapers you know how hard it can be to get a diaper sometimes so this is even better than a golden ticket!

If you didn’t get a chance to see the review Lara did on their Hybrid Fitted here is a bit more about what that is: “A hybrid is a fitted cloth diaper that is designed to be worn coverless made with a hidden layer of poly fleece, to push moisture back into the soaker system and keep the outer shell dry.”

Since Binky D Diapers are often so gorgeous it can be hard to want to cover them up.  That’s why the hidden fleece layer is so fabulous!  You can have them on longer without needing a cover before wetness makes it to the front of the diaper!  They’re also good for daytime diapers when you need a rash to air out since they will be more breathable than a diaper with a PUL cover.

Since you know you want to win one enter using the Rafflecopter below. Open worldwide!

Win it! A O.N.E. by GroVia in Dandelion!

This post may contain affiliate links.

So you regret not backing the O.N.E. when you had the chance, or maybe you did back it but you only ordered one and you wish you had more!  I happen to have a O.N.E. diaper laying around that I can’t do anything with (no babies to wear it, cue sad face) but my loss is your gain!

A photo posted by Kim Rosas (@kim_rosas) on

I was the very first backer for the project and I picked Dandelion as my print.  I even picked my O.N.E. up in person at MommyCon in Atlanta!  Now I am parting with it but on one condition- you enter my giveaway.  Simple enough!

Good luck!

Charlie Banana has a pretty incredible giveaway for DDL readers that I think you are going to be anxious to enter!  Their newest product is an organic version of their popular One Size diapers!

organic_cotton_tango_mango

“Looking for organic, natural fibers next to your baby’s bottom? We have designed a diaper shell which features luxuriously soft, 100% organic cotton lining inside. The soft cotton lining lets fast the liquid to pass through to the absorbent washable insert. Please note, that our organic cotton lining diaper dries a bit longer than our standard fleece diaper.

Charlie Banana diapers are a “2-in-1” reusable diaper system. It’s a cloth diaper but with a smart front panel that gives you the option of tucking in a disposable pad for those special occasions.
With Charlie Banana diapers, you get the best of both diaper worlds!”

There are a lot of parents who prefer organic options so this opens up the Charlie Banana brand for those families!  Their 6 Packs are attractively packaged and gift giving ready for the mom-to-be in your life too.

6 Years of Dirty Diaper Laundry! Celebrate with Me and WIN!

This post may contain affiliate links.
dsc_1816

The very first image uploaded to Dirty Diaper Laundry- 6 year old diaper laundry

This day crept up on me like WOAH so I’m scrambling to make a to-do of it because I do love a reason to celebrate! Today marks the 6th year blogiversary (blogging birthday) for Dirty Diaper Laundry.  6 years ago I published my first blog post titled “Welcome to Dirty Diaper Laundry” and declared my intentions for this website.

“The objective of this blog at this moment is to share my personal experience- raising my adorable 4.5 month old son with the intention of being “green”- and in doing so, reviewing the many products and ways I am able to do so.  I knew very early in my pregnancy that I would cloth diaper.  Even before I dove into the vast literature available and the never-ending choices, I knew.  I knew that I could not live with myself if my child produced thousands of diapers, dirty diapers, that would sit in a landfill for 500 years!!!  Yes, it takes that long for a typical disposable diaper to decompose.  The more I researched I was confident that I could make it work.  Now I have been cloth diapering for over 4 months, doing dirty diaper laundry every 2-3 days.  It can get tedious.  It can be exhausting… (note- my washer/dryer are down 2 flights of stairs.  This equals 5 trips up and down for each load of diaper laundry, not to mention my household laundry)  But every time I throw away a cotton ball into my son’s teeny tiny trash can and I see that cotton balls are the only thing in there, I feel amazing.”

DSC_0857

This is the original DDL tester, Fletcher, age 6.5

 

That 4.5 month old child is now 6.5 years old and I am more than 1,200 miles away from the apartment we lived in that was the inspiration for the blog’s name.  Dirty Diaper Laundry seemed to be a good phrase to describe my life- with 2 flights of stairs to climb for each and every load of laundry and factoring in the extra rinses when needed I felt that personified the time period.

SO much has changed since this website began 6 years ago and yet so much is the same.  DDL is still filming and publishing video cloth diaper reviews each month and our 200th video will publish this month!  My babies no longer wear diapers at all so I’ve been working with Lara and her daughters on reviews and she has been such an amazing addition to the blog.

This website began as a way to share my love of cloth diapering with the world.  At the time I felt pretty original and didn’t know other cloth diaper blogs existed!  Today there are dozens of blogs on the subject and even more websites and stores carrying cloth diapers.  More parents are choosing to use cloth diapers and my web traffic certainly seems to reflect that choice.  I’m honored to be considered a leading source of information and I’m so thankful that DDL readers have made this journey with me.  Some of you reading have been here since the very first month and have stuck around as you added to your families.  Some of you are completely new here and I invite you to stick around because there is always more to read!

6 years ago I was a SAHM living in Central New York and just a year out of college.  Today I manage DDL as a business from my home in Florida, run a cloth diapering non-profit called Giving Diapers, Giving Hope, travel with MommyCon with the cloth diaper resource center, and teach workshops on reusable menstrual cups.

A car full of “diaper” friends

 

As cliche as it is, when you love your job you never work a day in your life.  I have to say that most days this rings true for me and I LOVE what I do.  My boys ask me when they meet a new friend of mine “Does she do cloth diapers too?”  All packages addressed to me are assumed to be diapers, and my kids think it is totally normal that their mom spends her work time on the couch with a cup of coffee or in her office filming diapers in a giant white box.  I know stranger jobs exist but boy are my kids screwed for career day!  “Mom talks about diapers and little cups on YouTube!”

Win it! Milovia One Size Pocket in Cute Feathers!

This post may contain affiliate links.

OMG OMG OMG.  Time to get excited because this giveaway may not be HUGE but it is for one of the prettiest cloth diapers around!  This Milovia traveled to me all the way from Poland and I will be sending it to the winner!

miloviawin

Earlier today Lara posted her review of the Milovia One Size Pocket diaper.  Other than it having fantastic prints the diaper fared very well in the review and got high marks for quality of construction.  As we mentioned, this diaper is currently only available at one US retailer so you definitely want to try and win it here.  I was so excited that we had the opportunity to review it here and that they shipped one for review and one for a giveaway.

“The Milovia cloth diapers is a very practical, comfortable and charming way of natural diapering for every child. Neatly designed cut of ONE SIZE pocket nappy (regulated 3.5-16 kg / 8-35 lbs – for the entire nappy change period), carefully chosen fabrics and the outstanding design, make it a nappy that brings joy both to the parents and the children.

Made entirely of Polish fabrics, which are produced from the very start of their making, with children in mind. The outer fabric is the waterproof, vapour-permeable PUL fabric. Thanks to this layer, that clothes stay dry and baby’s skin is less likely to suffer from a nappy rash. The inner fabric is either microfleece, or Coolmax – highest quality fabrics. Microfleece provides the maximum of dryness, dries quickly and is resistant to stains, while Coolmax gently “informs” the child about wetting, providing maximum air circullation and serving well throughout the entire nappy change period with its durability.”

Now that you’ve fallen in love you can enter below! Since I’m shipping it myself this is open to US only.   Ends March 30th.

Last week my review of the Lily Cup and the video featuring Virginia were posted her on the blog.  Now it is time for a lucky DDL reader to win one!  For experienced or new cup users who’ve wanted to try a Lily Cup this could be your chance!

lilycup 1

The benefits of using a Lily Cup as stated on their website are…

Up to 12 hours protection • Made from 100% body-safe medical grade silicone • Doesn’t absorb moisture, free from fibers and bleaches • No dryness, no irritation, protects intimate balance • Can be worn all night worry free • $39.95, lasts for years • Reusable and environmentally friendly • No link to TSS

… and I couldn’t agree more.

As stated in my review, the Lily Cup got high marks for the spine and reinforced tail that makes insertion easy plus the super soft silicone and smooth cup shape make it extremely comfortable to wear.  It’s so comfortable you forget you are wearing a cup at all (as it should be!).
