Imagine Bamboo AIO Diaper Review and Giveaway!

I was sent a product for review for my personal opinion.

We are still using cloth diapers for little girl for naptime and night time.  In saying that I am trying to re-build our stash and get more AIO (All in One) options for us.  I was searching and had never tried Nicki's Diapers and found the Imagine Bamboo AIO and wanted to try it!  They sent me a Raspberry color in snaps.  

You can read about how Nicki's Diapers got started on their website.  What I found interesting is that for the Nicki's Diapers Brand if you Buy one they gift one to someone in need.  That is a great concept.

What I like about the Imagine Bamboo AIO:

-The price!  Right now as I am doing my review they are on sale for 14.95 but even not on sale they are 17.95 which is a good price for a bamboo diaper.

-The absorbancy:  True story here goes...Hubby was in charge of bedtime and I had not left diapers stuffed for night time so he grabbed the diaper I had placed on the table to do my review after prepping it.  So in short little girl still wets very heavy at night and surprisingly the diaper did not leak at all.  

-The fit.  The diaper in my opinion is trim fitting compared to a pocket diaper.

-The soaker pad.  It is made from 4 layers of bamboo.  The soaker can be folded to go where you need more absorbency in our case little girl sleeps mostly on her tummy as she always has so I fold it in the front to get more there.

-No Stuffing!  Recently hubby has been on a strike against taking out inserts (very frustrating) so this is why I am wanting more AIO's!  Also, after two years of diapering I am less excited to match up all of my diapers after the wash (gasp! :).  

On little girl we didn't snap down any for the fit because she is older but the diaper does feature two snap down rises so the fit according to the website is 8-35 pounds.  I will be excited to see this diaper on our newborn come July!

Overall, I am very pleased with the absorbency, fit, and overall cuteness of the Imagine Bamboo AIO from Nicki's Diapers!

You can buy from Nicki's Diapers on their website, and connect with them on Facebook, and Twitter.  

For my readers US and Canada Nicki's Diapers is giving away one Imagine Bamboo diaper in the color and closure of your choice!

Ruby Moon Cloth Diaper Detergent Review {and Giveaway}

I received a product for review and this is my personal opinion.

I don't know about you fellow cloth diaper followers but I am always trying different detergents!  When I had the chance to review and do a giveaway for you all for Ruby Moon Cloth Diaper Detergent I said yes!

When I got it in the mail I couldn't wait to wash diapers!  I was sent the Cranberry-Pomegranate scent and it smells amazing!

Once I went on the Ruby Moon site I quickly realized that they have monthly scents and so they are always introducing new scents!  They also have Unscented and a few other choices.  The prices are very reasonable and vary from 12.95-15.90 and more options for month club subscriptions.

Just a little about the Cloth Diaper Detergent from their website:

Our cloth diaper safe detergent was crafted especially for delicate skin and keeping your diapers tremendously clean. Our zero build up formula never leaves a residue on your diapers and can eliminate your need to strip your diapers and hassle with a complicated wash routine! Ruby Moon Cloth Diaper Detergent is • All Natural • Vegan/Cruelty Free • Biodegradable and Good for the Environment • Works in all water types • Phosphate, Enzyme, Optical Brightener, Fabric Softener and Soap free Each bag contains enough cloth diaper detergent for 45 loads of diapers in a top loader and 90 loads in a HE washer. No other cloth diaper safe detergent will leave your diapers this fresh and odor free so easily!

The ingredients in the Cloth Diaper Detergent:
 Sodium Carbonate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Sodium Percarbonate, Fragrance ( if scented)

Ruby Moon is a family company that started out by a mom just loving her cloth diapers and wanting a detergent that she could get without spending a lot of money and knowing what goes into her detergent!  I love the idea and how the company started.  They also offer Laundry Detergent which has two more ingredients that include soap and sodium borate.

My Review:

I have used it a few washes now and since it has been nice and sunny I have sunned my diapers!  So far they are smelling great (as I normally don't use scented) and seem to really get the diapers clean.  

I have been putting oxy powder (not oxy-clean) in my diaper wash for a while now but not putting it with this detergent seems to be working just fine.  Little girl is just using diapers for nap and night so our wash has been at least three days.  

You can connect and purchase Ruby Moon Cloth Diaper Detergent on their website, Facebook, and Twitter.

As I mentioned earlier Ruby Moon is giving a bag of their Cloth Diaper Detergent away to one reader!

To enter simply fill out the Giveaway Tools form below and the only mandatory option is liking their Facebook Page after that enter as many items as you would like.  This is open to US readers 18 and older.  The winner will be chosen and emailed and will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be drawn.

Thank you for entering and again, I received a product for review and this is my opinion.

Swaddle Designs Review and Giveaway {Showered With Love Giveaway Hop}

Welcome to the [2nd Annual] Showered With Love Event hosted by the Blogging Mamas Network!
We all know that April Showers bring May Flowers, but did you know that some of your favorite bloggers have come together throw a huge Shower of our own – a virtual Baby Shower! The Showered with Love Event will run from April 1-15, giving you plenty of time to enter all of the great giveaways, in the linky below, including the Grand Prize of a Combi Catalyst Travel System!

SwaddleDesigns was created by "Lynette Damir, RN, CEO and Creative Director, founded SwaddleDesigns in 2002. The inspiration for SwaddleDesigns was sparked when Lynette visited families with new babies in their homes and she noticed they struggled with swaddling for two reasons. First, the blanket they were using was too small or too thick, and second, they could not remember how to make a good secure swaddle. The parents consistently asked her to share the secret of the hospital nurses - how to swaddle."

SwaddleDesigns sent me a four pack of the 100% Cotton Muslin Swaddle Blankets ($50 Value) to share with you and one winner will receive a set of the same blankets as well!

My Review
When little girl was born I had practiced swaddling in the birth class we attended but when she was born at 9.6lbs I quickly learned that the normal receiving blankets just weren't big enough to work for us!  My mom had to go out and purchase two muslin swaddling blankets for us to be able to swaddle her!  

This is why I wanted to share the Muslin Swaddle Blankets from SwaddleDesigns!  They are big enough to wrap around baby and breathable for your little ones.

SwaddleDesigns now offers SwaddleClub you can connect on your phone or on the computer.  It is free to log in and get great advice on how to soothe and calm baby.  I think we all can relate to needed that kind of advice!  I encourage new and experienced moms and dads to join here and you can learn and watch videos on how to correctly swaddle!  

I took pictures on little girls baby doll because I don't have a little squishy to get my hands on for review purposes but you can see the idea :)!  I can't wait to try these out in July when our new little girl gets here (Lord Willing).

Overall, I am really excited to try these on the new baby and I think these are a great must have on any baby registry!  These are great for nursing especially on a hot beach (I have experience) and also good for strollers for a lite blanket!

You can connect with SwaddleDesigns on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram and you can purchase these and many other great essentials on their website.

My Giveaway is open to the US and Canada readers only 18 or older.  To enter simply fill out the giveaway tools form below.  The winner will have 48 hours to claim their prize by responding to an email after that another winner will be drawn.  Thank you for entering and be sure to enter the other awesome giveaways below!
