Giveaway Winners

Thanks so much for all the great comments and interaction during our Cloth Diapering 101 series this week.  I had a great time chatting with you about this topic that’s become quite dear to me over the past year.  Ending the series with a giveaway from four great diaper brands was simply icing on the cake.

The five winners of one of the sets of cloth diapers are:

1. Stacey, who said:  “I have been wanting to move to cloth diapering forever — but have not been able to afford the large one time expense of buying the diapers– was hoping to find some second hand at a thrift store but have not found them yet. The things I always carry in the diaper bag besides diapers and wipes: binkies water bottle extra clothes bag of almonds and raisins (for me).”

2. Mary, who said, “I always keep a change of clothes in the bag!”

3. Courtney, who said:  “I always carried a book – because you never knew when you would get the moment where the little one falls asleep and you can maybe just sit and read a bit. Love the diapering series – thank you.”

4. Laurel, who said:  “At this stage (our youngest is almost 6 months), we mustn’t forget the burp cloth(s)!”

5. Katy Blankenhorn, who said:  “What would I do without a wet bag? A definite necessity for any outing.”

Congrats, ladies! Look in your inbox for an email from me.
