Win a Newborn Starter Set from Bubbalooch!

You know what one of the draw backs are when it comes to starting to cloth diaper? Finding the diapers that work best for you, or that you even like!

I know when I started years ago, I tried one kind of diaper and only bought a hand full of them. We were right back in disposables shortly after and didn't look back till my middle son was over a year old.

It is hard to get started without spending a ton of money. But, the new company Bubbalooch has a genius idea which I think all parents who are interested in cloth diapering should know about. Cloth diaper parties! A way to showcase different kinds of modern cloth diapers without the he said - she said of blogs, cloth diapering boards, and all the different resources that can make you want to pull your hair out.

Bubbalooch is an authorized cloth diaper retailer for all kinds of cloth diaper retailers, as well as different cloth diaper detergent retailers.

Break Time!

When I set out on the Project Convert 2 Cloth project at the start of the summer, I had decided I wasn't going to be going to the BlogHer conference in New York City.

Well, like all things in life plans change, and I was able to secure an opportunity to go, so my being a little behind for PC2C turned into me being a lot of behind.

It happens. Right?

So what I am going to do is push last week's giveaway, and this week's giveaway back, and next week once I am back from the conference, I will get back in the saddle.

WAHM Diaper Giveaway

This week I have a lot of different WAHM (Work-at-Home-Mom) diaper makers to include in posts. A while back I had asked my readers and a lot of different cloth diapering moms to email me their favorite WAHM diaper makers.

Out of all the different submissions collected, two different diaper makers submitted a diaper each for a giveaway!

Unlike the other giveaways thus far, there will be two winners for this giveaway. One will win a diaper. This mainly because I would love for more and more people to be winners rather than a select few winning a ton of stuff.

Fair right?

Guest Post: Pre-Folds by Amanda from The Eco Friendly Family!

This is a guest post submitted by Amanda Hearn of The Eco-Friendly Family

While diapers have come a long way and the options couldn't be easier to use, one tried and true diaper is sometimes overlooked - the prefold.

Many families use and love these diapers, but their versatility, affordability and dependability are qualities that anyone can love!

What's a prefold?
A prefold diaper is most commonly made from cotton, but can also be found in bamboo and hemp varieties. They are often a combination of 4 layers of fabric overlapping at the center to create a thicker 8 layer pad that is idea for the "wet zone".

Types of Cloth Diapers

When it comes to looking into cloth diapering it can become extremely overwhelming. I know the first time I took the task on, I failed miserably and ended up selling the hand full of diapers I bought and going back to disposable till my middle son was about 18 months old.

There are four main types of diapers. Pre-folds, Pockets, All-in-Ones/All-in-Twos, and fitted diapers. If you want to get fancy you can branch off into hybrid diapers like g-diapers, but I am not going to focus on those types today. Just the basics.
