Hey, who wants some free crap?
In particular, who wants some free crap for your baby to crap in?
During the great nursery-to-big-kid-room move, I discovered a carefully packaged hoard of newborn cloth diapers. I only vaguely remember boxing it all up, possibly with the intention of giving it away...but more likely I was still hormonal and crazy and was like, NOOOO MY PRESHUS WITTLE TINY DIAPERS ALLLLL MIIIIIINE.
I'm better now. I would like someone else to have and use them.
I also went through the bigger/next-stage diapers and put together a second little diaper collection that should hopefully help someone get started with cloth (or continue with cloth).
So, here's what's what.
I have two diaper packages to give away, #1 and #2. I will describe them below. (In excruciating detail, because CLOTH DIAPERS MAKE ME SO TALKY.) Please leave a comment and specify which package you want. If you want both, please specify a FIRST CHOICE. I will use the random number widget thingie to select two winners.
The first commenter chosen will get their first choice. The second commenter will get either their first or second choice, depending on what's left for grabs. If the second commenter only wants the package the first person claimed, I will go back and select a third commenter and so on and so forth.
I will be happy to ship these anywhere, and can include laundry/care instructions if you need them. If you have a PayPal account and can kick some dollars towards the shipping cost, I would very much appreciate it — BUT if that's a hardship for you, please don't worry about it. If you're local, we can probably arrange for an in-person hand-off/pick-up.
(Disclaimer: This giveaway is sponsored by absolutely no one, other than My Own Ass.)
One dozen NEWBORN unbleached prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers (discontinued green edge; similar to the current yellow edge)
Two PREEMIE organic prefolds (I think they are Bummis but am not totally sure)
Two SMALL doublers from Green Mountain Diapers
Three NEWBORN fitted diapers, handmade by the much-missed Rebel Baby Co., cotton/velour with sewn-in insert
10 SMALL/SIZE ONE fitted diapers from Rebel Baby Co. Please note that these are missing the snap-in inserts. I continued to use the inserts after Ike outgrew these, and they were pretty shot by the time we were done with diapers. You could use just about any insert/doubler style with these, or find a similar diaper-maker on Etsy to make you replacements. (The "originals" were long enough to fold over three times, with one standard diapering snap.)
Three PREEMIE Prorap diaper covers
Three Thirsties covers, one X-SMALL and two SMALL
Four covers from Fluffy's Diapers, three X-SMALL and one SMALL
Four SMALL fleece covers, from a now-closed Etsy shop
One SMALL wool cover, also from a defunct Etsy shop
And for fun: A cute cloth diaper/wipes bag in a Day of the Dead pattern. Just cuz.
Despite a little blue here and there, most of these diapers are pretty gender neutral. There's that blue fleece cover and a couple cars/dinosuar patterns but I dunno. I'm a girl and I think cars and dinosaurs are pretty dope.
Everything in this box is in good to excellent condition. If you notice any discoloring (they've been packed away for awhile), wash the diapers with Charlie's Soap or Rockin Green and let them dry in the sun.
Six MEDIUM (mix of white and unbleached) prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers
Five LARGE Workhorse fitteds, no-snap style (you'll need Snappis or pins)
One ONE-SIZE fitted diaper from yet-another-closed-Etsy shop, with a snap-in insert
Six ONE-SIZE Flip diaper covers, hook-and-loop closure
Two ONE-SIZE bumGenius pocket diapers, hook-and-loop closure (no microfiber inserts; we used prefolds)
Two MEDIUM Bummis swim diapers
And for fun: I'll toss in four pairs of BabyLegs and the Columbia diaper bag/backpack w/ changing pad. Just cuz.
Again, there's a blue Flip cover but everything else is gender neutral. I only chose diapers and covers that were in SUPER excellent condition for this package. Blah blah please wash and sun anything that appears discolored blah blah I swear I'm not unloading anything disgusting but we are talking about diapers here.
Soooo...okay. That's all I've got. Comments will remain open for seven days and then I'll pick the winners. Plz to use a valid email address that u check. I can't really control if you comment a million times but I'd prefer if you only enter once, for fairness and shit. (But I know the comment section hiccups sometimes and posts duplicates. I won't like, disqualify you if that happens.)
