A Cloth Diaper Baby Shower Gift for Under $30

Cloth Diaper Baby Shower Gift for Under $30 @TheEcoChic

Do you know someone who is having a baby?  Would you love to introduce them to cloth diapering without being too pushy?  My "go-to" baby shower gift these days is very simple and costs less than $30 (unlike my elaborate cloth diaper baby gift basket that was almost $300). Contents:  One bumGenius 4.0 one-size cloth diaper PLUS one copy of Changing Diapers, the Hip Moms Guide to Modern Cloth Diapers. Price: $17.97 for the bumGenius diaper (less if it's on sale) and $7.98 for the book.  Grand total: $25.95 I keep a few of these books on hand to give as gifts to all my pregnant friends.  By adding one simple cloth diaper it allows them to touch and feel my favorite diaper before they decide if cloth diapering is for them. Would you have loved a simple gift like this?  Did you get any cloth diapers as gifts when you were pregnant?  Leave a comment below and tell me all about it. ... [ Read More ]

How to Make a Cloth Diaper Baby Gift Basket

How to Make a Cloth Diaper Baby Gift Basket

My husband was invited to a baby shower for a coworker and friend of his and asked if I would make him a baby gift basket...with cloth diapers!  Of course I jumped on the opportunity to create a beautiful gift for a new mom-to-be.  Her and her husband both got the "Are you doing cloth?" talk from my husband and decided they would give it a try. What to shop for?  We wanted the gift basket to be fun and have some other items besides cloth diapers so I raided my closet of all the eco-friendly goodies that I've accumulated from trade shows, conferences, and even my EcoCentric Mom subscription boxes.  I will say, one of the perks of being a blogger is that I can usually find a few things to give as gifts.  My husband went to Target and picked up a huge pink bucket (we have one we use in our daughters room just like this for stuffed animal storage) and a few small items from the mom's baby registry.  Then I ordered a few of my favorite cloth diapers from Kelly's Closet (and pulled a few ...

Why Softbums Are Really the Perfect Fit Cloth Diaper

Softbum1

Giveaway Alert! One reader will receive a Softbums Cloth Diaper of their choice.  For details keep reading.  Giveaway has ended and the winner is Khrys! @momof3dolls! ECO-ngratulations! Continue reading to learn more about SoftBums cloth diapers! As we enter our second year of cloth diapering I'm excited to try new brands.  We recently added a Blazing Orange Softbums to our stash and I wish I would have found this one early on.  I can honestly see why they claim to have the "Perfect Fit."  Softbums is an all-in-two cloth diaper with a snap in insert.  The inserts are available in dry touch (a micro-fleece/micro-terry combination) and also in bamboo.  Each diaper also comes with a doubler for those heavy wetters.  One great advantage to an all-in-two is that you can reuse the cover a few times just by snapping in a new insert.  There is no need to wash the cover each time unless it's soiled.  This will extend the life of your cover and save you time in the laundry ...

Giveaway Alert!  Bamboo Bums is giving away $25 Bum Bucks (e-gift certificate) to one lucky reader! All readers win with a coupon code good until Dec. 15th! Details at the end of post! I'm quickly learning that in the world of cloth diapers the possibilities are endless!  You can have your prefolds, flat folds, pockets, all in ones, all in twos, one size, sized, velcro, aplix, snaps, loopy doos, microsuede, bamboo, hemp, organic, cotton....well you get the picture!  It can be a little overwhelming for the newbies but it's actually quite exciting for the seasoned cloth diapering mamma (or pappa!).  I was just reading an article today about using receiving blankets and t-shirts as diapers!  I have also come to realize that cloth diapering parents can differ in what they prefer.  Some parents are really after the most economical cloth diapers that are out there while others are looking for the easiest options available.  If there is one thing I've learned it's that there is no ...
