My (baby's) Bum is Soft, is Yours?

I have found a new cloth diaper that I simply adore.


Enter Softbums PerfectFit All in 2! Sara, over at Softbums, was gracious enough to send me a pack to try out & I'm beyond impressed.


First of all, who doesn't dig the name Nuclear Pumpkin? I mean, really? Coolest. name. ever.  I received the Softbums Basic Pack, obviously in Nuclear Pumpkin- perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, & of course, those previously mentioned Chicago Bears cheering Sundays!  The Basic Pack comes with the Softbums waterproof cover (that's the orange part)t & 3 microfiber snap in inserts.  The inserts fold over & have a top layer of super soft fleece (this is the part that touches baby's bum).  

My favorite part of these diapers?  Well, I can't pick just one.  You can reuse the cover, 2-6 times! 6 possible times! Amazing! (What, do less laundry? I'm all for that!) You snap in the insert, place on baby, then remove insert & let the cover dry.  Next diaper change, snap in new insert and bam! New diaper, less laundry.  What's my other favorite part?  It's a one size diaper that's actually perfect sized.  It has 'tiny snuggers' (as the company calls them) that adjust to make the diaper literally fit babies from 6 pounds up to 35 pounds.


What would I change about the diaper?  That's easy... it's current closure is velcro.  I don't adore velcro on diapers, but Softbums has already taken care of that for me.  Very soon (as in, next week kind of soon!), snap closures will be available. How great is that? Best of both worlds! Everyone can get exactly what they prefer.

If I haven't convinced you that Softbums are a fabulous new diaper, then maybe this video will convince you.  Check it out here.

Now are you ready to try some out for yourself? Here's how...

Head over to Softbums website & purchase some for yourself!

Win one right here! (yes, here!)

Sara has generously offered up some Softbums for my winner, so sign up... Here's how (leave me a comment for each of these possible entries):

1.  Go to Softbums.com & tell me what your favorite color of diaper is.  Leave me your email address in the comment.  This entry is mandatory, all following comments will be null & void.  Thank you!!

2.  Follow Big City! Baby (this will be verified).

3.  Follow Sara's blog, I Love Cloth Diapers (this will be verified as well).

4.  Become a fan of Softbums on Facebook.

5. Follow both @mandyw526 & @Softbums on twitter.  Tweet once daily, including both @mandyw526 & @Softbums.  Also include #clothdiapers & this blog post link.  Leave me the link please!

6. Play along!  Comment on any other blog post- leave me the link!

7.  Blog about this- leave me the link where I can find it!

...Be ready for an extra entry or two... I already have them in mind!

Blog Giveaway ends Sunday, November 29th at 8pm CST. Winner will be drawn via random generator & then contacted via email.  Winner has 24 hours to respond to me, before another winner is drawn.
