Thirsties Duo Wrap & Duo Hemp Prefold Giveaway (CLOSED 10/20) US/Canada

thirsties duo wrap

Earlier this year, I did a photo review of a Thirsties Duo Wrap and Prefold. (Check out that post for all the details and photos!) I had won a cover & sized fitted in a giveaway, and chose the newborn sizes, even though I wasn’t expecting at that point! You may call it crazy, I call it planning ahead! Anyway, I wanted to compare the XS cover to the duo wrap, and I had a gift certificate, so I went for it!

Since my newborn isn’t here yet, I haven’t actually gotten to use this, but I have yet to meet a Thirsties product I don’t like!

The Thirsties Duo Wrap is essentially the same design as the duo diaper, only it’s a cover!


The duo wrap has a trimmer fit than the sized covers, so it’s perfect to use over prefolds or trim diapers. It comes in size 1 (6-18 pounds) and size 2 (18-40 pounds) to get you from birth to potty training with just 2 sizes!


The wraps come in 9 colors ($12.75 each) and 5 prints ($13.75 each.) They’re available with snaps as well as Velcro closures!


They pair perfectly with the duo hemp prefold, which also comes in size 1 and 2. The prefolds are super soft (and I mean soft) cotton hemp jersey, which is more durable and more absorbent than 100% cotton, and is naturally anti-microbial. They are sewn so that each portion is only 2 layers thick, so they are easier to get clean and dry (view my review for all the pics!) Each prefold retails for $7.00.

Be sure to request a Thirsties print catalog, “like” Thirsties on Facebook and follow Thirsties on Twitter!

Giveaway: Thirsties is offering one of my readers a Duo Wrap and Duo Hemp Prefold in his/her choice of size, color and closure! Entries go in the Rafflecopter form.

Carole’s Cozy Comforts Newborn Hats (Keep Me off Etsy Please!)

newborn hat

It may sound silly, but since all three of my kids have been/will be “surprise” genders, it’s really fun to put them in their first pink or blue outfit. My first two were born in the hospital, so they received a cute little pink or blue hat to wear, which I saved in their memory boxes. This baby will be born at home, but I still really wanted a cute pink or blue hat! Oh and uhh…have I mentioned how much I love Etsy?

After sifting through 8 jillion baby hats (which OMG, be still my wallet, you could spend a fortune on hats alone!) I found Carole’s Cozy Comforts. Oh dear, you have to look at some of her baby hats. Acorn hats, pumpkin hats, apples, tomatoes and blueberries? So cute!!

A few days after my hat hunt, I had a dream that a friend and I were at the craft store trying to learn how to knit baby hats, ha ha!!

As cute as all the pom pom hats and elf hats and everything else are, I just wanted a basic, plain old hat in pink and blue. I found it in the Basic Baby Hat in Light Blue and the Basic Baby Hat in Light Pink. You can get a hat in pretty much any size you want, I of course chose the newborn!

They are machine washable and dryable, though it’s recommended that you hand wash them and lay them flat to dry. They are made from 100% acrylic yarn and are stretchy to fit nicely and comfortably. They were $10 each, which I think is fair considering how well made they are!

It’s a little big for my model, but hopefully it will fit a baby better, tee-hee!

Aden & Anais Slumber Muslin Sleeping Bag Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 10/19)


October is SIDS awareness month, and Aden & Anais (you may know them for their popular muslin swaddling blankets!) are proud sponsors of the CJ foundation for SIDS. They have a great PDF flyer with 10 safety tips and one of those tips is to remove loose bedding, and consider a wearable blanket instead.

I received an Aden & Anais slumber, classic muslin sleeping bag. It is a light weight, single layer of muslin, and is available in 8 prints/colors. I received the Jungle Jam elephant print! The sleeping bags are also available in a cozy version, which is 4 layers of muslin.


I chose the size small, which fits up to 6 months, 23-28″ and 10-18 lbs. I love that they are available in sizes up to XL, which fits 18-24 months, 35-40″ and 26-36 lbs. So you can keep your baby safe and cuddly warm, no matter what his age or size.


Muslin’s light, open weave allows your baby’s body to regulate it’s temperature, without getting overheated. They’re breathable and soft, and get softer with every wash.


There’s an extra strip of muslin over the zipper, so you don’t have to worry about it scratching your little one!


The sleeping bags are designed to be worn over pajamas, and zip from the bottom to make diaper changes easier!

My son caught me trying to take some pictures and insisted that his bear model for you (he is used to me snatching his Manni for newborn diaper photos!)


I can’t wait to have a new baby to put in this sleeping bag, and the elephant print will be adorable whether it’s a boy or a girl!!

Giveaway: One winner will receive an Aden & Anais classic sleeping bag in his/her choice of size and print (ARV $32.00) Entries go in the Rafflecopter form.

Cloth Diapers Giveaway Inserts Made in the USA Natural Fiber Natural Fiber Diapers Newborn Diapers One Size Diapers Pocket Diapers Side Snapping Snap Closure Virtual Baby Shower Event

Babykicks 3G Pocket Cloth Diaper Giveaway (CLOSED 10/18)


I reviewed my Babykicks Bumboo pocket diaper about 16 months ago, then compared the Bumboo pocket to the new 3G pocket about 7 months ago. I love the Babykicks Joey Bunz one size inserts, especially with the improved tapered end and sizing guidelines. Please view my full Babykicks 3G Pocket Diaper review for all the details and photos!

I also made a video demonstrating how to use the newborn snap. This is one of only a handful of one-size diapers that I think would really work on a newborn!

The 3G pocket is available in 4 great colors, plus the white with multicolored snaps. It’s a trim one-size pocket with a front pocket opening and side snaps, and the snap down rise allows it to fit babies from 7-40 pounds. The waterproof PUL outer has fleece gussets that allow air flow, but not leaks. The lining of the diaper is 30% Certified Organic Cotton and 70% Rayon made from Bamboo, a great choice if you prefer natural materials over microfleece or suedecloth.

The Babykicks 3G pocket diaper retails for $20.50 and is available at lots of online and “brick and mortar” retailers! Be sure to follow Babykicks on Twitter and “like” Babykicks on Facebook.

Giveaway: Babykicks is offering one of my readers a 3G pocket diaper in his/her choice of color (ARV $20.50.) Entries go in the Rafflecopter form.
