Flats Challenge & Giveaway #ClothDiaperHop




Mother's Day is almost here and we are celebrating with our love for cloth diapers!

Welcome to the Mother's Day Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop hosted by Daily Mothering! Nearly 100 blogs have linked up to bring you dozens and dozens of exciting cloth diaper giveaways. Enter my giveaway below and then hop to the other blogs listed at the bottom of this post to enter their fluffy giveaways too! Each blog has a cloth diaper prize valued at $15 or more, and many blogs have prize packs worth over $100. And, don't forget to enter the GRAND PRIZE giveaway at Daily Mothering for your chance to win this amazing $1300 Cloth Diaper Prize Pack!



Mother's Day and cloth diapers? Sure, but Mother's Day and the Flats Challenge? The 2nd annual Flats & Handwashing Challenge is happening May 21-27 and is organized by Kim Rosas of Dirty Diaper Laundry. Besides the perfect timing of this giveaway hop & the challenge, you may be wondering what the Flats Challenge really has to do with Mother's Day. During the holidays I try to think of people who are struggling more than we are & Mother's Day is no exception. I can't believe there are moms who can't afford disposable diapers and therefore leaving dirty diapers on longer and/or rinsing & reusing disposable diapers to save money (and thinking it's the only option) like mentioned in the article that inspired the first Flats Challenge last year.

"The Second Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge is intended to raise awareness about the dangers of improper diapering techniques (reusing disposable diapers, not changing often enough for financial reasons, etc) and prove that there is a way to use cloth diapers without a washer/dryer if the situation calls for it."

Normally I encourage to use of "modern" cloth diapers rather than prefolds & flats, but no mother should think they have to endanger their baby's health in order to make their disposable diapers (aka money) stretch. Prefold and/or flat cloth diapers are an excellent option for low cost cloth diapering and are easily handwashed. For every person who signs up to do the Flats Challenge, Kim will donate $1 (up to $200) to Giving Diapers Giving Hope. For full rules regarding the Flats Challenge visit here.



  
WIN IT! In order to help someone participate in the Flats Challenge (or just to help with their diaper stash) we're giving away a 6 pack of OsoCozy birdseye unbleached flat diapers, a GroVia one-size snap shell in nature print, a 2 pack of neon Snappi cloth diaper fasteners and a 5 pack of Bummis fleece liners! Happy Mother's Day!

  173. I've never used flats nor handwashed. My son just potty trained so no participation this year. I'm due with a son in August, so maybe we'll participate next year!
    As for Mother's day, my hubby is deployed and we are away from family, so it will be a day of church and relaxation with my boys.

  176. I have used flats and handwashed. I love flats and would pick them over prefolds any day! But I do prefer the ease of a washing machine : P

  179. I have used flats, and even hand washed them! when we first bought our house, we didn't have a washing machine for a week. so i had to use the kitchen sink to hand wash everything. flats were definitely the easiest for hand washing ;)

  195. I have used my receiving blanket flats before, it doesn't happen a lot though. The one time I handwashed diapers was when we were on vacation and my son only needed a diaper at night, I took 2 covers and a couple flats and just washed every morning, but there was no poop... if there had been it might have been a little more difficult for me to do. :-) I wasn't buying a package of pull-ups for a week long trip though!
