Thursday Giveaway: A Change Would Do You Good
September 12, 2013 3:54 am | by
BLOG_giveaways

I’m sure you know the Sheryl Crow Song “A Change Will Do You Good.” Now that I brought it up, you’re probably singing the chorus in your head.
EleClementine_Detail325x325

Like the song states, a change would do you good. Now, we don’t know exactly what it is you need to change, other than a dirty bumGenius, but we want you to try and switch up your daily cloth diaper routine.

Don’t worry, we’re not going haywire and asking you to do something drastic. Instead, we want you to change it up and try a cloth diaper system that you haven’t used  as frequently as others.

For this week’s giveaway, two people will win two bumGenius, Flip or Econobum cloth diapers and a pack of inserts (Flip, Econobum or Hemp Babies). You get to choose! To enter, comment below and tell us one thing you’d like to change. It could be in relation to anything. 

Bonus entries are available below to improve your chances of winning.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Eligible entries must be posted no later than midnight Eastern time, Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013. U.S. residents only. Void where prohibited by law. No purchase necessary to win. Winners will be drawn after the close of the contest and notified via email. This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. We hereby release Facebook of any liability.

    Well, I would love to change the overwhelming feeling you get when switching from disposable to cloth ! It can be very frustrating learning all the lingo and all the different brands and types .

  • Casey K said...

    I would like to change our culture’s perception of breastfeeding and breastfeeding in public specifically. As a mom to be, nothing frustrates me more than seeing people look disapprovingly of a mother feeding her child (usually covered with a scarf or blanket no less!) in public.

    I’m hoping to change my baby’s bedtime. Right now he has to start his bedtime routine at 6:45 and be nursing by 7:15 or he’s a mess. I don’t know what we are going to do when daylight savings ends!

    Just in the last couple of days I started using Flip and Econobum covers with the reusable inserts. (I also have a pack of disposable inserts which I haven’t tried yet.) My goal is to be able to use cloth diapers when traveling.

  • Kristine said...

    I would like to change my family’s eating habits by making our meals more regular. My boys snack throughout the day and I need to hold more designated meal times with scheduled snacks. Also, I haven’t been very consistent about making dinner! I want to plan meals weekly so that I’m not finding myself at 5:00 thinking, “What should I make for dinner?!”

  • Katrina said...
    September 12, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I would love to try different diaper inserts as my little girl already has an insert and the newborn insert and she is only 6 months. I am afraid of what the future might bring……

    I’d love to change the brand of diapers I use. I’m currently using china cheepies and they are horrible. My LO leaks through every diaper and they leave red marks on her cause they are too small and are suppose to be OS. Id love to try something new :-)

  • ashley schroeder said...

  • Hannah Solbach said...
    September 12, 2013 at 10:09 am

    I currently use BumGenius and Charlie Bananas as well as prefolds and a few other random pocket diapers that were purchased for a baby shower gift. I would Love to try out Econobum or Hemp Babies. (Probably Hemp Babies more than anything else right now because my daughter’s starting to become a heavy wetter.

  • Kelley H. said...
    September 12, 2013 at 10:03 am

  • Jodi Howell said...
    September 12, 2013 at 8:53 am

    I would like to be less stressed and more relaxed about life. I would like to be more secure in my faith despite all my trials. SO the thing I am going to change is to read my bible more and trust God more and enjoy my kids more and do my best to let worries go to the way side.

  • Jeanette E. said...
    September 12, 2013 at 8:36 am

    I’m hoping to change my babies over from disposables 100% to cloth diapers! I started cloth diapering my 15 m/o a few months ago and am working on building my stash. We love BG diapers!! I am due in a few months with our 3rd baby and am working on building a collection to keep 2 babies in cloth diapers. We have some econobums and some BG 4.0s, they’re so fantastic I wish I started with my 1st baby!

  • Daniella Rinehart said...
    September 12, 2013 at 8:34 am

    September 12, 2013 at 8:07 am

    I am hoping to completely cease using/buying disposables. My husband still feels more comfortable with me, but I’m hoping he will learn to love our cloth diapers as much as I do!

  • Beth De said...
    September 12, 2013 at 8:05 am

    I wish I would have bought less of the freetime and more of the 4.0. I find the all in ones are a lot bulkier and my little guy moves a bit easier with the 4.0s. However, both work great and I am not dissatisfied. Also, I wish I would use cloth wipes instead of disposable.

  • Melody Mondragon said...
    September 12, 2013 at 8:03 am

    I started out my cloth diapering journey with Bum Genius, but have mostly been using flats and prefolds lately – I would LOVE to try out more BG!!!

  • Erin Ritter said...
    September 12, 2013 at 8:03 am

    I want to change the love of disposable diapers! I want to get more information out about cloth diapers. I think if people knew more information on cloth diapering more people would choose cloth!

  • Sarah said...

  • Stephanie Huhn said...
    September 12, 2013 at 7:28 am

    If I could change one thing about Bumgenius 4.0’s, it would be to offer it with a natural fiber insert such as hemp, charcoal or organic cotton. I always just buy the “seconds” and purchase a baby kick hemp insert separately. I would be nice though if the original diaper offered this option. Otherwise, the 4.0’s are perfect in my opinion.

  • Heather Fuller said...
    September 12, 2013 at 7:04 am

    I have no idea what to change because we’re still waiting on the arrival of our first little one! She could make her appearance any day. I can’t wait to try a variety of CDing systems with her!

  • Abigail said...

    I would love to change the way people perceive breast feeding in public and also it should be a requirement for ANY business who has a public restroom to have a baby changing table or station. Nothing more annoying than not being able to change your baby in a designated area!
