Cloth Diapers make National News on Earth Day!

If you’re a cloth diapering family and advocate for cloth, you know that Earth Day is OUR day!  Cloth Diapers make sense year round of course, but for Earth Day when people seek ways to green their lifestyles a little more-cloth diapers make loads of sense! Cloth Diapers in the News! On the TodayMoms website today Kelly Wels, Author of Changing Diapers:  The Hip Mom’s Guide to Cloth Diapering, was interviewed and asked to share her thoughts on modern cloth diapering, the recent craze for cloth diaper prints and cloth diapering tips. We’re thrilled to see Kelly and cloth diapering getting much deserved media coverage on such an important day. With The Great Cloth Diaper Change happening this weekend we think this is a fabulous way to kick off  Earth Day, Real Diaper Week and The Great Cloth Diaper Change!

Kelly Wels Giveway – Diaper Dawgs – Enter to WIN!

Kelly Wels Giveway – Diaper Dawgs – Enter to WIN!

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
