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!

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!

Pink Lemonade Luxury Mama Cloth {Giveaway!}

This post may contain affiliate links.

One of the unintentional side effects of cloth diapering your baby is that you are suddenly aware of the yucky chemicals inside of all disposable hygiene.  Tampons and pads are not immune to those ingredients and now you are wondering how to avoid the same things!  For some a menstrual cup is a good plan but not everyone is comfortable with using them.  For those moms reusable mama cloth (reusable menstrual pads, you don’t HAVE to be a mom to use them!) can be the answer.

pads

You may be wondering how all this works… like cloth diapers, you will need to wash your mama cloth items.  Pink Lemonade conveniently sells reusable zippered wet bags from Planet Wise to store your dirties in between wash days and Femme Rock, a detergent designed for washing mama cloth. You can carry a small dual zippered bag to hold clean and dirty pads for traveling too.

Pink Lemonade specializes in luxury mama cloth.  The luxury comes from their soft fabrics and boutique designs.  They have created a large variety of menstrual pads with sizes that will work for teens all the way up to their larger and more absorbent post partum pads.    I am asked often about safe options for after childbirth since menstrual cups are not an option so I love that they have created post-partum mama cloth.   If you are traditionally a menstrual cup user but still have light leakage on heavy days or just like that protected feeling they offer liners too. Fabric choices like minky, bamboo velour, and fleece are very familiar to cloth diapering moms.

Eventually cloth diapering comes to an end, perhaps a mama cloth stash is your next addiction?  Like cloth diapers you can find them in designer prints and really amazing tie-dyes in vibrant hues. I can help get you started!

Enter to win a $50 Gift Code to shop on Pink Lemonade! This giveaway is open Worldwide (hurray) and ends at midnight August 28.

Plastic FREE July Challenge + Giveaway

Plastic FREE July Challenge + Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links.

Every one of us has the ability to make a small change that ultimately makes a huge impact.  This month is Plastic Free July and the chance to challenge yourself- make one small change in your lifestyle to cut the amount of plastic you bring in.  Call it “pre-cycling.”  I love the folks at BALM! Baby who are inspiring this challenge and that they understand how hard it is to change our daily habits and routines, so one small change is something!
Plastic Free July Challenge + Giveaway

Challenge Details:

  •  Challenge will start July 1& end July 31, 2014. Form must be filled out & filled out HERE (it’s short)
  • Switch one thing either within your household or your place of business within the month of July that helps to reduce plastic use. Then post a picture to our FB (facebook.com/balmbaby)
  • Make sure you ALSO enter the GIVEAWAY via Rafflecopter (SEE BELOW).  We added a giveaway to show our appreciation for the support of you taking the challenge.
  • Prizes include: $100 Gift Card to be used at our online shop (taylorspureandnatural.com) * Glass Dharma $25 Gift Card * Pura $50 Gift Pack * SmartBottoms AIO Cloth Diaper (One Size ORGANIC) * Irresistibly Green $25 Gift Card * Life Without Plastic Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold set * Brinware Plate Set * PLUS Stay tuned for MORE!
  • Baby Steps Peeps! Don’t stress or get all “perfectionist” like I do! I know it can be intimidating sometimes, so just focus on your one little baby step. (:::

WHY Take the Challenge?

Most people are unaware that plastic is a huge issue, not just to our planet, but our health.
Our Planet: Plastic will NEVER break down. 2oz. of plastic will ALWAYS be 2oz. of plastic & can only be down-cycled / up-cycled so many times.

Our Health: When plastic is used for food or skin care containers, there are health concerns because plastic can leech, especially when warmed up,making even natural products become full of toxic chemicals, and therfore, no longer natural.

Get Informed! Be Part of the solution!

 Switch Ideas:

* Switch items with plastic material to more sustainable materials (glass, stainless steel, wood, clay, fabric, aluminum, etc.)
* Buy some re-usable stainless steel or glass water bottles instead of plastic ones.
* Buy some re-usuable stainless steel or glass food containers.
* Buy in BULK, taking your re-usable containers in to fill up.

Feel free to switch as MANY things as you’d like (just don’t overwhelm yourselves!).

One of the things I’ve done in recent years has been to bring my reusable bags with me, and not just to the grocery store.  Target, one of my regular haunts, even gives a small discount per bag.  Am I perfect at remembering?  Of course not!  But by placing bags in places like my car, in the hallways I exit from each day, and a small one in my purse I’m more prepared than not.

As cloth diapering families you are already greatly impacting the planet by keeping disposables out of landfills.  Not only that, but consider the plastic packaging that wraps those disposables!  Many cloth diapering companies think carefully about the way they package, display, and ship their diapers too!  Being that disposables can take hundreds of years to break down this is a problem that isn’t going away- it is multiplying.

So consider joining the challenge and entering the giveaway.

Plastic Free July (the organization that started it all), has their Challenge that we highly recommend doing.  You can find more info. on it & sign up HERE:  http://www.plasticfreejuly.org/the-challenge.html
