Tuesday Giveaway: Just the basics!
July 10, 2012 10:15 am | by

I don’t know about you, but the heat of summer makes me drop back to just the basics of life. Simplifying chores, spending evenings on the porch with a tall glass of water, letting the kids play in the sprinkler in the yard and more.

Maybe the heat even affects your cloth diapering routine? Many customers tell us that when the hot days of summer arrive, they like to let their little ones run around in a classic prefold cloth diaper without a cover whenever possible.

For today’s giveaway, our prize package includes some of our favorite Cotton Babies basics: an Econobum trial kit, a set of bumGenius Flannel Baby Wipes and a bottle of bumGenius Bottom Cleaner. To enter, all you have to do is tell us what your favorite cloth diapering basics are. If you would like bonus entries, check out the widget below for more ways to enter.

    Well, whaddyaknow! I actually like the econobum and prefold better than any other combination for my two littles. Throw the pre-fold in a fleece sock insert, and it’s pretty much our go-to-day-or-night solution!

    I love my Grovia shells with simple chinese prefolds! I find the Grovias super easy to snap. I always lay a thin layer of fleece on my prefold to wick away the moisture.

    I love prefolds and PUL covers. I like small Proraps and am loving some WAHM mediums I have these days. If I didn’t already have so many prefolds, I would go for flats.

    We have a big stash of BG 4.0 and at 21 months, they are still going strong, and they are still the best!

    I use the econobum covers on my 1 month old. The inserts from the econobums are just a little too bulky for my liking.

    Prefolds with a Flip cover. Day in, day out, they work without any hassle.

    we tend to fall back on our prefolds with an econobum cover and they are almost leak proof!

    When our little one is playing in his baby pool, I like to use a swim diaper with a flip diaper cover to avoid any leaks that may occur. He’s super comfy and isn’t held back by any bulkiness of a bigger diaper!

    I love how easy cloth diapers how and how they help us save money so we can “live” more freely.
