Kelly Wels Giveaway – WIN a pair of Diaper Dawgs!

Kelly Wels Giveaway – WIN a pair of Diaper Dawgs!

Diaper Dawgs were created by a mom who was just learning the ins and out of cloth diapering when she came across a problem she just couldn’t “handle” anymore. Diaper Dawgs’ composition is much like their oven mitt counterparts. The difference comes in Diaper Dawgs’ patent-pending unique sizing, which fits just around the fingers to simulate a mom reaching for a soiled cloth diaper insert to pull or snap it off. But separating inserts isn’t the only trick Diaper Dawgs can do. Their gripped muzzles bite down to hold a dirty cloth diaper in place while spraying and when mom is done, she can use that same grip power to help wring out excess water. This week, we’re giving one winner a pair of Diaper Dawgs. Open to the USA only. Winner has 7 days to respond and claim their prize. Enter to win using the Rafflecopter form below. a Rafflecopter giveaway

Cloth Diaper Geek blog celebrates 20K fans with an impressive month long giveaway!

Cloth Diaper Geek blog celebrates 20K fans with an impressive month long giveaway!

The Cloth Diaper Geek blog was started in January of 2011.  After selling my online cloth diaper store I knew I had to find a way to continue to stay immersed in the industry and community that had become such a big part of my life. From Fan #1 in January 2011 to Fan #20,000 in April 2014 it’s been a fun journey.  Cloth diaper brands, styles and stores have come and gone and families have cloth diapered, potty trained and moved on while others continue to cloth diaper multiple children over multiple years and may have been around to witness my start. Though I no longer have babies small enough to cloth diaper, I still feel I have a relevant perspective to share and at this point, advocacy is as easy as remembering to take another breath, the words just come out! Celebrating 20K fans is an amazing honor and if I don’t acquire even one more fan I’d be happy just where I am today. Hopefully you’ll recognize and appreciate the 30+ sponsors for this great giveaway.  Each has been a cloth diaper brand, store or distributor that … Continue reading
