CowPattiesClothDiaper Review & Giveaway

I found Megs a few months ago when she was looking for testers for her new minkee diapers, I got to try one and fell in LOVE! This Mama is AWESOME. So I contacted her to see if she would like to do a review for one of her other diapers, She agreed and sent me a FPF (Famous Pocket Fitted) It was so adorable! 
After it was prepped, we tried it out!
 Prepping for her inserts can take up to 10 full washes to get to max absorbency.
We love this diaper for overnight, We use it with out White Elephants wool cover. 
Normally we use a goodmama fitted for overnight and Bug is soaked by morning, He has also learned how to take off snap diapers BTW! I found that out this morning when i woke up to a naked baby! LOL
When Bug wakes up with the FPF he is not wet at all on the outside.
This diaper is pretty much bullet proof! This is one of my favorite diapers and I will continue to buy from Megs! When we have another baby I guarantee that we will be buying diapers from her and using the diapers we already have from her. This diaper has gone thru alot already so far with toddler poo, Im sure it will hold up to a few more kiddos! ;)
I cant wait to try other products from her line.There is just so much to choose from that its just so hard on what to try next! Thanks so much Megs I have fallen in LOVE with this diaper! :)
This diaper is probably the best I have in my stash right now.
Did I mention how CUTE this diaper is? 
I love the Zoo theme on this diaper! 
The fit of this diaper on Bug is superb! There are so many great features of this diaper its hard to list them all! 
Lets try!
  • Soft fabric
  • Awesome prints
  • Perfect Elastic tightness
  • Great Selection of fabric Choices for inner and outers
  • Great sizing for all babies
My Rating? 10 out of 10
Dislikes? I would love to have the side straps just a tad bit longer on both sides, Bug has big hips that he gets from his daddy! :) Other than that, this diaper is perfect for us! 

Bug wearing his new diaper while brushing a bouncing ball! How cute right? 
Look at that cute butt! :) None other that the awesome
Cow Patties Cloth Diapers!
Heres the Front on him! 
You can see the side straps are a tad short, 
Snappi's still work though so its all good!

BOOGIE WIPES! Review & Giveaway!

Do you have a Baby or Toddler that is sick, runny nose, sneezing or just a boogie kid? 
This company here is for you! Boogie wipes are amazing! I know my little Bug gets a yucky nose when he cries and he thinks is funny to try to blow snot all over the place! These things have helped a ton in the past week and a half! Bug knows that if he does something wrong he goes to the corner for 1 minute each time. Yes he cries but only for that minute. By that time he has Boogies everywhere. He stays in the corner until I tell him to come out and at that time he comes and gives me hugs and kisses to say sorry mama!
I use the Boogie wipes to clean his face and nose, He even likes to do it himself! 
Go figure thats a toddler for you right?
I never hit Bug. My corner method works amazing. He is getting so good at listening!

Anyways These Boogie wipes come in several different scents, We were sent Great Grape. 
It is very mild but smells so sweet. 
The other scents the have are:
Simply Unscented,Fresh Scent & Magic Menthol.

They also have these great things called Boogies on the Go which are individually wrapped boogie wipes. You can see the Boogies on the go in the pic above.
They have them in all scents. They sent me 3 of each of the Magic Menthol, Fresh Scent and Great Grape. They all smell devine! 
I have never found anything that works so well on messy noses, Theses things are top notch nose wipes.
 Baby wipes? Tissues? 
They are a think of the past! Seriously I will never buy another type of nose wipes again!
These wipes do more than wipe away boogies, When used reguralrly they help prevent dry chapped noses. Even my peditrician recommended using them on Bug.

Boogie wipes are made from a formula that dissolves mucus, Moisturizes with chamomile, Vitamin E and Aloe. 
They are hypoallergenic, Gentle and safe for all ages! 

A little about the company from the site:
Often referred to as The Boogie Moms®, friends Mindee Doney and Julie Pickens developed the first ever saline nose wipe called Boogie Wipes® as a solution for their kids’ sore, red, runny noses.  Using the idea, their business backgrounds and mompreneurial spirit they formed Little Busy Bodies, Inc in May, 2007.  After an intensive research and development process, hiring a chemist, surveying consumers and interviewing manufacturers, in December, 2007 they sold their first pack of Boogie Wipes.  Sales went on to reach $1 Million their first year of business.  Little Busy Bodies now operates out of Beaverton, OR and employs 12 full-time employees (9 moms) including Julie as CEO and Mindee as CMO. The company tripled their revenue in 2009 at $3.4 Million. They now offer 11 saline nose wipe products to 50,000 retail stores across the US and Canada including; Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens & Toys”R”Us. Their adult line of nose wipes, Achooz, will launch this spring.

My rating? 10 out of 20!
Likes: Everything, they smell great, They are natural, soft and chemical free!
Dislikes? They are disposable. You know me I love everything reusable! If they made just a solution that i can add to my cloth wipes I would buy just the solution! 

They have a special going on right now also! Buy any 3 packs of Boogie wipes and you get this guy free! Just print out THIS form and glue the UPCs to it and send it in!

Want a coupon off your purchase?

White Elephants Wool Soaker Review!

 I contacted Lynn from White Elephants and asked to review one of her Wool soakers, She agreed and I sent her Logans measurments and I paid $3 to have her ship it to me! I fell in LOVE with this cover from the time the package got opened. I couldnt wait to put it on Logan's bottom! :) It was so soft and wasn't like anything I had ever tried. We used it that night over our Goodmama fitted. We woke up that morning with NO leaks! I was sold. We have been using very old and worn thirsties and blueberry plastic covers. They leave red marks on Logan so i really wanted to find something that would stop the red marks. This did just that. No red marks. Its not too tight and not too loose. 
If you have ever wanted to venture into wool covers but was too scared because you thought it was complicated, Think again! With White Elephants It is super easy! You need to Lanolize them yes BUT its not as hard as you would think! I promise! It only needs to be done once a month depending upon how often you use the cover! I have had my 1 for 2 weeks and have used it every other day so its needing the lanolin now. LOL. 
Its not hard from what i have heard you just take a dab of the lanolin cream that they sell at walmart or target, YES the breastfeeding nipple cream stuff, you take it and melt it in hot water and put it in a bowl and let it soak for an hour and then hang outside to dry!
You do NOT want to squeeze, Twist or ring your wool as it can loose its shape and not fit right anymore. You can also wash with baby wash in between each Lanolin that you do. Yes it will take longer to dry because you can not throw it in the dryer but it is worth the wait and expense of wool. 
Now onto expenses you can spend anywhere from $15 to $50plus for wool! Luckily another added bonus to the amazing White Elephants is her wool soakers only cost $18 per soaker! Now thats a steal! 

Rating: 10 out of 10! Seriously this product is my Favorite item in our stash. I plan to buy more as soon as my Swagbucks comes in LOL. 

Buy it! White Elephants! 
These are the best prices you will find around! Plus remember you are supporting a MOM! Not just another Big booming chain store!

Lyn also makes other amazing products too! 
Heres a few other amazing products she makes that i cant wait to try! 
Fleece soaker
These are just a few! She makes some great products. 

Now go check her out and buy something! :) The stuff is to cute to resist!

Look at the cute wool bum! 
And the cute feet! :)
I love that its not too bulky 
AND it can be used in place of shorts! :) 
He loves our new wool! 
Cant ya tell!? He said More more! 

Fine Print. 
I was given a item at no cost, just shipping. All opinions are my own and I was not paid to say anything good or bad about this company.
