Giveaway Question.



Would my readers prefer a google doc entry?
It's real easy, all questions are there already, you just need to type in your info and hit submit. I think I would do extra entries to enter more than once. Like hit enter for your first entry, then fill in all info again and do another entry and hit enter. It would be easiest on me so I didn't have to add them all up.

I'm curious though if you like commenting or the form easier.

La-Moo Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Cute clothes are found right here at La-Moo. Avery was sent the LuLu La- Moo Long sleeve top in Black.


I got one of the whole shirt, but can't find it.

It's Long Sleeve, Black, Size 4T and it gits just great! 

Avery loves that she has a cow on her shirt. I need to get her at least one shirt with one of every animal on it. She loves her animal clothes and I wish she had more. This added just one more animal to her collection. It's a Cow of course and it's adorable. I love the snaps at the top as they allow the shirt some extra stretch to go over heads. Avery only needs one of them unsnapped to get it on. Her head isn't too big though. 

It's been washed, it hasn't faded, shrunk or peeled off in any way. The stitching is still in perfect shape as well. 

La-Moo has lots of cute clothes on their site. 
Cute stuff all around. 

Price: The Tee I received is on sale for $12.73 from $15.73. They have cheap clothes. 

Overall: ***** Love the price, the quality and the logo is super adorable.

Smart Bottoms Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



Since Avery is out of diapers, this will be my last cloth diaper review until a second baby decides to join us! I'm a little sad, but she's no longer in diapers and obviously it's wrong to review an item without being able to fully review it. 
This diaper was agreed on being sent before Avery nap and Night Trained :( So unfortunately I wasn't able to fully give it a proper review. BUT I will review the materials and such. 

Smart Bottoms is a hybrid system. It's a cover and a prefold insert! 
Sorry for the Cruddy Shadow. The flash wanted to go off, but because it's white on white that didn't work well. 
This is the cover They have 2 adjustable sizes.
 Inside. It's REALLY hard to see, but it's a mesh material in there.
 Prefold Trifolded inside.
 Folded the other way for a smaller baby.
 Opened up.
You can put the prefold on traditionally or trifold it. 

I think Prefolds and covers are the perfect cloth diaper for any size child, they're cheap, easy and they're nothing fancy to figure out. You just fold it in thirds, lay it in a cover and you're good to go. 

They're covers come in 2 sizes. Between the 2 you can get your child diapered from 5-30+ pounds. I'm pretty sure I received the larger of the 2 sizes. 

The prefold inserts come in 3 sizes.They also have the Too Smart Inserts, which are more contoured and lay in, they are backed with a layer of PUL so they are waterproof.
They also carry an all in one diaper with the insert sewn right in.

The covers come in 4 colors, Brown, Blue, Pink and White. Very basic, less choices to make and cute. They're also very affordable as well. 
The cover I received is $18, the prefolds are $7. Too Smart Inserts are $10 and they're AIO diaper is $20.
Think about it like this. 30 Prefolds (would diaper a newborn for about 2-3 days and would last a toddler 5 days or so) and maybe 8 covers in each size, you're looking at $498. This will last you from Birth to Potty Training. Not a lot of money.
Let's say $25 for a box of diapers, every 2 weeks. $50 a month that's $600 a year. You've already saved money!!!! Yes it's more outright, but it's a major saver in the end. 

The material was great, the Prefold was SUPER soft. It hadn't been washed yet, but it got softer with each of it's 2 washes. The cover like I said has a mesh in it, which was pretty cool. It's just a PUL. The Snaps were kind of different with weird placements, but after a while I got it down, just took a minute. 

OH. Smart Bottoms has DIAPER PARTIES! Tell me that's not the coolest thing you've ever heard. You can sign up to host at your own home, but they also show them online for others to learn about. Pretty Neat.

Overall: ***** I really liked this diaper and I think it's a great Hybrid option!
