Thursday Giveaway: Look, ma! No stuffing!

Cloth diapering is like riding a bike. Freetime_mirror1

You ease into with training wheels and start a basic system like prefolds and covers, and later advance to something a bit more complex like pocket or All-in-One diapers.

When you began using cloth diapers, you probably needed a bit of direction, which is also similar to riding a bike for the first time. I did at least. Then, after you were able to stand on your own two feet, you hit the ground running and now you're able to cloth diaper without any help or training. You may even be able to set records with your cloth diapering abilities, hello GCDC!!

Now that you've become such a pro at using cloth diapers, it's equal to riding a bike without your hands on the handle bars! You don't even need to steer yourself at this point because using cloth diapers has become a natural, everyday ability. 

For this week's giveaway, we want to embrace your ability to use any type of cloth diapering system, including one that you don't have to stuff. Three people will win a bumGenius Freetime.

To enter, comment with the age in which you first learned how to ride a bike or use cloth diapers. Bonus entries are also available below.

    I think I was 7 when I finally learned to ride a bike without training wheels, super old! I learned to CD (pins and prefolds) when my niece was born so 16. I learned how to modern CD with my son, last year.

    10! I didn’t learn to ride a bike until I was 10, which felt terribly late to me at the time. I’m glad that I realized, “better late than never”–I’m so happy that I took the plunge and learned! Similarly, I’m beginning to try out cloth diapering for the first time, even though my baby is eight months old. I’m so glad that I tried it and discovered this blog, even though it’s a bit daunting to try something new!

    I remember learning to ride my bike without training wheels around the age of 5. It was a lot of fun!! With our second child, the cloth diapering is much easier and we don’t have a second thought about what we are doing. We just do it!

    I learned to use cloth diapers “one the fly” with my now 3.5 month old. We started with prefolds + covers. When he was 2 weeks old (and about 8 lbs.) we switched to BG pocket diapers. So much easier!

    I first learned to cloth diaper when I was 12. My sister was just born and I changed a lot of diapers. I was always so scared of getting her with the pins though! Now that I have my own little one (many years later to say the least) I’m so happy to put my baby in modern cloth diapers, and Freetimes are my favorite now that I’m back at work.

Now I’m 25 and expecting my first child so I’m learning all the ins and outs to cloth diapering before our little one is here in October! :)

    I think I was eight or nine when I learned how to ride a bike. I learned how to cloth diaper last year. My mom cloth diapered myself and all of my siblings. Of course, she used a diaper service and the diapers were prefolds/flats. So I’ve known how to cloth diaper for a long time, but only actually did it myself (with my firstborn) beginning this past year.

    I love my BumGenius. And luckily dad does too. He wasn’t on board with the cloth diapering idea, so I just bought 6 elementals. In no time he was asking how many more we would need. The answer is always more, I am cloth diapering twins at 20 months and due in January with another. So always more!

    I learned how to ride my bike when I was 8. My dad taught me. My bike was pink and purple and has a banana seat! Once I was on two wheels, I rode my bike everywhere. Growing up in a small town I was able to ride it to my friends house across town, to the store, and to school. I have amazing memories associated with riding my bike!

    As far as riding a bike I was a bit of a late learner. I taught myself when I was in first grade. I guess the same goes for cloth; I didn’t start until my son was just using diapers at night. Now with number two due in a couple of months, I’m glad I did.

I was the only one who still knew how to CD when I went to babysitting class in 7th grade. Now, in my 30’s with a little one of my own, I’m loving CD all over again!
