Get UnJunked!

Thanks to being a BzzAgent, I had the opportunity to try new UNREAL candy. This line of candy features no artificial flavors or dyes, no hydrogenated oil, and no corn syrup! With three little ones, we try to avoid these things as much as possible, and it's great to know we can splurge and have a yummy treat... without the junk!

We've tried both the candy-coated chocolate (like M&Ms), and the peanut butter cups (like Reeses). Both were absolutely delicious! Another huge bonus is that they can be purchased in your local grocery store or drugstore. (Living in a rural area, I don't have access to a health food store... but I found these at CVS). AND they are about the same price as your typical candy.

Win a bra makeover from Playtex!

Who loves bra-shopping? Not many, I'm sure, because it's just so darn hard to find a decent bra that actually FITS! In fact, 7 out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra- that's a lot of unhappy boobs out there (not to mention bruised shoulders and aching backs)!!

Fortunately, 10 lucky winners of Playtex's Bra Makeover contest will win a trip to NYC and receive a Bra Makeover with style expert Alison Deyette! You can nominate yourself, a friend or family member by going to www.PlaytexBraMakeover.com.

The 10 winners selected for a Bra Makeover will also star in their very own webisode wherein a makeover candidate will receive a fitting with Deyette and walk away with the perfect Playtex products. A new webisode will premier on www.PlaytexBraMakeover.com every two weeks.

So, get those entries in by Friday, May 21st... good luck!

By posting this information, I am entered into a contest to win a free bra from Playtex. I did not receive any compensation for this post and thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Guess who has a Snowman Butt?

2 years! Wow.. I used sposies on my little girl when she was first born because she was 5lb 5oz and quickly dropped to 5lb and took her a couple months just to get up to around 8lbs! We started as soon as we could though. I am addicted and I loooove it! It has become just as easy as disposables, in my opinion. People should just give it some time!

Lots of great cloth diaper tips were shared, so if you missed it, be sure to read through the comments. Thank you so much everyone for participating, and thanks for all the great soaker ideas! Look for them in my Etsy Shop over the next few weeks (and remember- if you just can't wait, custom orders are always welcomed!)

Snowman Butt (embellished fleece diaper cover) LIVE Giveaway!

Even though there is still a good six inches of snow on the ground from this past weekend, we're supposed to get 12-18 more inches tomorrow! Personally, I absolutely LOVE the snow, and am thoroughly enjoying this very snowy winter. It just makes me feel so peaceful and serene.

To celebrate all this white stuff, I thought I would give away a Snowman Butt embellished fleece diaper cover/soaker, handmade by me.

Fleece is super soft against baby's skin, and very breathable. It doesn't absorb moisture- it repels it, thus creating a barrier between baby's diaper and the outside world. Use it with your favorite prefolds and fitted cloth diapers, or even over disposable diapers for extra protection (and extra cuteness)!

The cover I'm giving away is a size MEDIUM, with the following measurements:
Rise = 17"
Waist = 15-17"
Thigh = 9-10"

You can find other embellished fleece soakers and longies, as well as many other handmade eco-friendly goodies in my Etsy shop, Enchanted Dandelions. You can see other soakers I've made under my Sold Items. Custom orders are always welcome!

On to the giveaway! I thought I would do this one a little bit different. Instead of having it end on a certain date, I will draw a random winner when we reach 200 comments. And instead of having a maximum number of entries per person, you can enter as much as you want. Sound cool? ^.^

Mandatory Entry: Become a public follower of this blog (see right column). Be sure to include your email address where I may contact you if you win.

Bonus Entries: (leave a separate comment for each one)
* Comment with a design you'd like to see embellished on future fleece soakers - unlimited entries!
* Comment with anything related to cloth diapers: about your personal stash, why you love cloth diapers, about their many benefits, tricks and tips, diapers you'd like to try, etc. Doesn't have to be anything significant or long, just little blurbs that stay somewhat on topic ^.^ - unlimited entries!
* Follow me on Twitter (leave username)
* Tweet about this giveaway, including a link to this post - unlimited entries! (just don't annoy your twitter friends too much, *wink*)

Good luck and just go nuts with the comments! Who knows... maybe if the person with the most comments doesn't win, I'll have to send them a little consolation prize. *wink* (In the meantime, I'll sit here and try my best not to join the conversation... it'll be hard- I'm such a cloth diaper fanatic. *grin*)

SproutBaby Review & Giveaway

When I first stumbled across SproutBaby.com, my interest was immediately piqued, and not just because I collectively call my children The Sprouts *grin*. It was because they carry SO many products for the eco- and health-conscious family. From yummy organic baby food to squishy cloth diapers, from gentle bath products to imagination-enriching toys, SproutBaby.com has it all!

I thought the SproutBaby website was very easy to navigate. Another great feature is that in each category, there are helpful articles relevant to the products you are browsing. For example, before shopping for baby care products, you can read their Guide to Personal Care Products for Babies and Kids.

Speaking of baby care products, SproutBaby.com sent me some samples of Episencial Playful Foaming Wash. The packaging is SO cute, featuring The Hungry Little Caterpillar. ^.^ The same day I received the samples, Oliver (my 18mo) decided he would give this wash the ultimate test by having a massive diaper blow out. I'll leave out the yucky details, but let's just say he was covered from knee to underarms. The Playful Foaming Wash certainly did the job, and it wasn't long before my littlest Sprout was clean again. The scent is very mild, and didn't leave any lingering scent on Oliver (although it smelled so pleasant, I wouldn't have minded if it did). It wasn't as "foaming" as I thought it would be, given the name, but still a great wash.

You can purchase Playful Foaming Wash at SproutBaby.com, along with tons of other products. AND Mountain Momma Musings readers (that's you!) can take 15% off their first order by using this coupon code: SBBL135. Valid until 2/28.
