Sweet Iris Designs Snug Bug Bamboo Flat Giveaway

This past Monday DDL was back with a video review.  I know, I know, we went way too long without one!  Sweet Iris Designs make a luxurious flat and Lara had a great write-up about her experience with it.  Even though flats are often thought of as cheap, there are some flats that are made with luxurious materials thus, costing more.


In case you would like to win one first before buying I have a giveaway for one Snug Bug bamboo viscose stretch flat.  Here is a little more about these diapers from Sweet Iris Designs:

Whether you’ve been disappointed by the absorbency of average diapers, you want something that feels soft and luxe on your baby, or you want something stretchy that gives you a gorgeous fit even when you’re flat fold and pin job are less than perfect, Snug Bugs are going to be right up your alley. Sweet Iris’ bamboo terry squares are winning raves from moms for their absorbency, durability, trimness and great fit. These have one smooth knit side and one terry side, and pin or Snappi beautifully.

These bamboo viscose diaper flats are available in a generous standard size (around 27.5 inches square, pre-shrunk) or in a small size of about 19 inches.

Don’t be intimidated by flats. Be one of the throngs of moms who tries them and converts! Flats are deceptively easy to master. Try Sweet Iris’ luxury flats and you’ll still pay less than you would with the top cloth diapering brands–and get far better quality components.

These trim-fitting, super-absorbent flats weigh about 8 oz. per *square* yard and are made of 70% viscose from bamboo, 25% organic cotton, and 5% spandex. We have chosen to offer a terry knit fabric, as it stays soft even after months of brutal cloth diaper laundering routines (fleece can get kind of crunchy over time). This is an Oeko Tex certified fabric, tested to ensure it is free from any chemicals or harmful residues. These diapers are register with the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and are labeled in accordance with government regulations for small batch manufacturers. Snug Bug stretch flats are legally protected by a pending patent.


Flats are definitely one of my favorite cloth diapers to use, and definitely my favorite to wash.  If you’ve always wanted to try one go on and enter, you never know if you will win! Use the Rafflecopter below.  Open to US only.  Quick and easy entries on this one!

Why you should plan a Family Bike Ride {Plus a Special Earth Day Giveaway!}

This post is part of a collaboration with Green Child Magazine and Onya Baby.

Our family spends time outdoors every single day, nearly year round.  We are fortunate to live in a climate where this is possible and believe me, we appreciate this change of scenery compared to the 5 years we spent in a winter wonderland.  One of the things I looked forward to most about the move was the opportunity to ride bikes with my children.  In our baby days, most of our outdoor time involved walks around the lake, usually with a baby in one of our carriers.  Today they’re not content to just walk or be carried, they need to speed through nature!

We love biking for so many reasons…


It is true that my job requires me to sit and work from a computer for long hours, and it sets the same example for my children.  Having our outside time is my way of counteracting this.  Children do as they see, and if mom is outside riding her bike, digging in the yard, or throwing the frisbee they will be just as excited to do so.  I know that by setting expectations of daily exercise it is a habit they will continue on with, hopefully for the rest of their lives.



At this age, Fletcher isn’t able to go on our adventures for long distances.  We can do, at most, about three miles round trip.  On our longer journeys we trek out past the communities where there is an old farm.  It is the closest to nature we can get on our bikes, The children love being on these adventures, and we find new things to point out and admire each trip, including an amazing old tree that stands alone in the middle of a pasture.  It is an amazing view that never gets old and I’m so glad these bits of nature are just a bike ride away even in our susburban environment.

Back to Nature

These trips are ways we can remove ourselves from the media that surrounds us.  We are enmeshed in this modern world, and enjoy our computers and iPads, but I believe in balancing that time out with the considerable amount of time we spend outdoors.  The farther we pedal the more removed we are from the communities and cars, and the louder the birds become.  As the children get older I plan to take our bikes out to other places in our town where we can enjoy the view even more than what is at our doorstep.  We have access to bike paths next to the gulf, and in areas with amazing wild life.  I know for me, it is therapeutic to enjoy the fresh breezes and the feeling of warm sunshine.  It is good for my soul, and I want my children to grow up with that same appreciation for the outside world.  It is easy to get caught up in the entertainment indoors, one can certainly never be truly bored with the Internet around, but nothing compares to actually living life and experiencing it right in front of you.  Some days I’m outside, watching the sun set past our tree line as it lights up the spanish moss with a golden glow, and I can’t believe we have this beauty right beyond our brick walls.

This is how I want my children to see, and fall in love, with nature.  Appreciating what we have means they are more likely to care for our resources and understand why protecting them is so incredibly important.  We see litter on our rides and I have to explain to my son that some people don’t appreciate the natural world, but that we should.  Our trips can become teaching moments too.

Enter to Win!

In collaboration with Green Child Magazine and Onya Baby this post also has a great giveaway in celebration of Earth Day!  You can enter to win one of these incredible packages.  I can tell you that I loved our Onya, especially for back carries, and the PITS from Taylor’s Pure and Natural is my go-to natural deodorant!

Funky Fluff Starter Kit Giveaway

A few weeks ago Lara was able to bring you a review of the Funky Fluff Bamboo 3-in-1.  She loved the versatility and the attractive design and thought it would make a great baby shower gift.


Funky Fluff Fusion 3 in 1 cloth diapers were created by a team of two moms from Toronto Canada. By creating our interchangeable design, we hope to show that modern cloth diapers are easy to use, convenient and can work for anyone, no matter which system they prefer to use. The same diaper can be used whether you are a dad who likes an AIO system, a mom who prefers the convenience of an AI2 or a daycare provider who feels comfortable with the Pocket System concept.

Our versatile design can be used as a Pocket, All in One (AIO) or All in Two (AI2) system. It is a one size system that will fit from approximately 7 to 35 pounds and is available in Stay Dry or Bamboo Blend fabrics. Our diapers come in an assortment of colors with a unique funky colored “belt” and include a heavy duty and light soaker.


Enter to win a Funky Fluff Starter Kit!  This includes:
  • 1 Funky Fluff 3 in 1 Bamboo Diaper
  • 1 Funky Fluff 3 in 1 Stay Dry Diaper
  • 1 Funky Fluff Double Pocket Wet Bag

Win a Chunky Cheeks Hybrid Fitted! {3/18}

Yesterday Lara, our fabulous diaper reviewer, wrote her review of the Chunky Cheeks Hybrid Fitted and loved it, especially for her heavy wetter!  Now we get to give one of them to a lucky DDL reader!  YES!  Hybrid fitteds are so hot right now (lol) and if you haven’t tried one this could be your chance!


Hybrid fitteds have a hidden layer of poly fleece between the decorative cotton knit outer and the inner layer (cotton velour in this case) so it helps to stop the moisture from going through to the outside.  It isn’t waterproof, but it does prevent all of the wetness from going through right to your furniture or lap.  This is nice for babies with sensitive skin who need breathability!  Chunky Cheeks hybrids are one size and fit babies 10-35 pounds using a fold over rise.  Their waist has a generous amount of room for babies to grow into.

Right now the best way to get your hands on  Chunky Cheeks, besides winning, is to order through the co-op on Facebook or get a custom.  Make sure you enter to win too while you are here!

Win a cloth diaper art poster from Sandhill Press

I love my Cloth Diaper Art by Sandhill Press {Giveaway}

cloth diaper art posters

I’m not a patron of the fine arts and most of the things on my walls are from thrift shops or estate sales.   I do, however, love to hang art on the walls that actually means something to me beyond just being pretty when I find it. When I was approached by Erin, the artist behind SandHill Press, about her screen-printed cloth diaper posters I fell in love! In case you didn’t already know, I collect vintage cloth diaper related ephemera (photos, advertisements, articles, even vintage cloth diapers and accessories) and I have some in my laundry room. I was already picturing these hanging in the same room, even though my diaper washing days are just about done for forever.  Erin sent me one of each for a review.

Image credit SandHill Press

Image credit SandHill Press

There are three different posters available, shown above.

Professionally screen-printed on 100% recycled paper with water-based inks. These prints are sized at 11×14 for easy framing!

My favorites were the two blue versions because I loved the message and also the coloring, very soothing. They all would look darling together over a changing station in a nursery framed and matted! Because these are screenprinted onto a nice, thick paper they look like quality pieces of art rather than something downloaded as a free printable. There is depth and richness to them that wouldn’t be possible from a printer.


I found tiny little hangers by Umbra from Target to hang mine from since I don’t have a lot of real estate for frames in the laundry room, plus I don’t want to add any more holes to my walls because they took forever to paint. The posters do come shipped in a roll so if you want to hang them up without framing you might have to let them sit under some books to flatten them out. I did that but was too impatient so I used a tiny bit of double sided tape on the bottom for now, and will release in a while to see if it is straight. I like it either way, even taped.


If you need these in your life (you do, you need them in your life) SandHill Press has an etsy shop and the posters are on sale for $10.00 each plus shipping!!! If I had a nursery I would do just as she did and hang a pretty cord and have all three pinned up over the changing table for an even cheaper way of displaying them without adding the cost of frames. Or if you have a retail cloth diaper store this is about as perfect as it gets for decorating your space!  You might want to decide soon because these are limited and she only has what has been printed.  After this she will do a new set of prints, yet to be determined.

There are car decals, fridge magnets, t-shirts, and buttons, but I’ve yet to see cloth diaper art. It makes me a little giddy to see that someone with this much talent used her powers for my favorite cause.
Win a cloth diaper art poster from Sandhill Press

Oh, did I forget to mention I have one to giveaway?! The winner can choose the print of their choice from the three! I would have a very hard time deciding but for a nursery I’d pick “Same Diaper, Different Day” or for a laundry room the “Wash, Dry, Fold.”  Enter using the Rafflecopter below, open to US only and ends 3/14.  Make sure you read the rules of entering and leave a comment.
