Hello folks and welcome to the second collaboration between EcoBuns and Jabber Log. It’s been some time since the first but we’re back with another giveaway! So what’s up for grabs this time? Well as you can see from the image here, it’s a brand new GroVia print and the best part is that it’s not even in stores yet. Yep, that’s right, you will have a chance to win this superb looking print and be the envy of the cloth world before it hits stores in mid April. So, you’re probably asking yourself,
“Well what do I have to do?”
Well folks, the contest is titled, “The Share A Story Giveaway”. Why share a story? Well, recently I wrote a post on Diaper Wars that followed my cloth adventure to the state of Florida. After writing this post I decided to share it with EcoBuns. From there it was shared with fans and then I was amazed and honored when I found out that GroVia had also shared my post. This caused a frenzy of views on my blog and none of it would have been possible without a “share” from everyone. So sticking with the same formula, we have decided to base this contest around sharing stories. Ok, so now that I have explained the concept let’s get to the specifics.
— How to enter The Share A Story Giveaway —
1. Like Jabber Log on Facebook and post “complete” on the wall or something to that effect.
2. Like EcoBuns on Facebook and post “complete” on the wall or something to that effect, however, if you are already a fan then please subscribe to Jabber Log on WordPress. (There is a sign up button on the left side of the main page.)
3. Last but not least, you will comment to this post and share a funny story.
Now, you’re probably wondering if the funny story can be about anything but what we’re looking for is a funny story that involves a unique diaper change. For example, the story about my wife and I changing our daughters diaper at Legoland, in public, and while she was feeding. The contest will begin at the time of this posting and will go until midnight of 03/28/12. As for a limit, there is no limit to how many stories you can post as long as they are in by the deadline. On Wednesday the 28th we will go through all the stories and narrow them down to four finalists. After those have been chosen we will post them on Jabber Log where everyone can vote on the best one. This will hopefully be done by the end of Wednesday so that everyone can get in on the voting. On Saturday the 31st the polls will be closed and a winner will be chosen by the highest number of votes it received. This is meant to be fun so dig deep into your memory banks and bust out some funny diaper change stories. We look forward to reading them and may the cloth be with you.
Disclaimer: In no way, shape, or form is Facebook or GroVia directly affiliated with this contest. Also, if your story is chosen as winner and you live in Canada you will be required to pay shipping costs.Post Views: 209

Good morning to all! I hope you had a happy and safe St. Patricks Day last night. It’s been a while since my last post on Diaper Wars but it’s back and today’s episode is a Florida Edition. My family and I recently returned from vacation but while I was there and on break a few things that involved our cloth adventure occurred. It was interesting enough that I had to write about it.
Before we headed out to Florida I began to worry that it was going to be rather hard to use cloth diapers while traveling by car. To be honest the cloth diapers should have been the least of my worries since my 6 month old daughter Lola hates being in her carseat for X amount of time. I should have been wondering about how my wife and I were going to deal with Lola getting uncomfortable in her seat and possibly screaming over an 18 hour road trip. In the end I did what I always do; think too much about the situation and worry for nothing. The cloth diapers were a snap! It was no problem at all so if you’re worried about cloth on a long road trip and think you might use disposables, DON’T DO IT!. Stick with cloth, it’s simple and better for your child.
The entire time we’ve used cloth diapers we have heard that sun drying takes out the stains better than anything else. Every time I’ve heard this I thought,
“Does it really make that much of a difference?”
I figured it would fade it a little and not much else but man was I wrong! While in Florida, my wife bought some rope and set up a line in her parents yard. Once they were completely dry I was shocked to see that they looked as though we had just bought them! That alone made me want to move back. I couldn’t believe how good they looked and on that note I apologize to my wife Rebecca and my friend Candis of EcoBuns. I stand corrected and from now on, and when we can, the sun will be drying all of our cloth diapers.
Using cloth has been awesome and while on our vacation I got the chance to change Lola’s diaper at Legoland. Yep! You read that right, I changed her diaper at Legoland. Now, it might not seem like much because people change diapers all the time but this was in public. Oh yeah! In public and around a lot of people. What makes this even more awesome was that my wife was feeding her at the time. After all this you’re probably wondering why we didn’t take her to the bathroom to change her right? Well I have an answer for that! The changing tables within the bathroom were set next to the sinks and out in the open. They looked rather dirty to begin with so we did it out in the open. Here, let me set the scene for you. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and my wife and I are sitting on a bench waiting for the rest of our family to come off a roller coaster. There are tons of people walking around us and others taking pictures with a dinosaur made out of Lego’s to the right of us. My wife has a cover over her while feeding Lola and she leans in to ask me a question.
“Hey can you change Lola’s diaper?”
“WHAT!? RIGHT HERE IN FRONT OF EVERYONE?”
“Why not? I’m covered right now and you can use it to cover her.”
Believe me when I say that I was completely freaked out and uncomfortable. My wife looked at me like I was being a fool and she had every reason to because I was being a fool. So there we are, on the bench, my wife is feeding Lola, and I’m waiting for my moment to change her diaper. As I’m getting the pre-fold and cover ready, my wife slips off the diaper.
“What are you doing? I’m not ready!”
We began to laugh and I was trying to hurry. In my mind it took forever and everyone was staring at us and giving us dirty looks but in reality we were ninja’s because we actually changed her diaper with a quickness without anyone knowing what was going on. I think at the end of it I belted out,
“Yeah! That’s how we do it!”
And my wife responded with,
“You’re a dork.”
I am a dork and all in all the trip was a success and I was worried for nothing. The Diaper Wars Saga continues and going strong. GroVia seems to be leading the pack but we always go back to Pre-folds. My wife has developed a few folding techniques for our Pre-folds and I swear I have to watch her do it several times before I can get it right. It’s been pretty interesting. I’m glad we got the opportunity to use cloth diapers with Lola and stay tuned for more adventures. Cheers and may the cloth be with you!Post Views: 45
