Cloth Diaper giveaways

Not sure if you're aware but I've recently fallen in love with all things fluff. I'm talking about cloth diapers here. This may sound weird coming from me knowing that my son is 4 but I am hoping one day to have another child. Hopefully. Whether it's Michael getting his vasectomy reversed or adopting/fostering a child.

Some people think it's weird to cloth diaper. I know I did. Well, I'm not sure if I thought it was weird as much as not very practical. I had visions of pins and flat sheets of cloth, and I didn't understand how they didn't leak. It's just fabric after all! When I went to Korea I met several ladies that cloth diapered and found out they were actually pretty cute and definitely not what I thought they were. I still didn't know too much about them until recently when I started researching about them for a friend. There is so much information out there! One of these days I'll write a post with links to different sites that I've found a lot of information, but today I'm just going to share with you giveaways.

Cloth diapers can be expensive at first. Overall, it's way cheaper then disposables, but disposables you buy a little at a time. Cloth you have to purchase at the beginning so it is a little bit of an investment at first. There's cheaper ways and more expensive ways to do it, depending on what kind you're interested in, but they all cost money. My solution? Hitting up giveaways! You would not believe how many cloth diaper giveaways there are online! I've found a couple of sites that post a lot of them with their ending dates and that's normally how I find them.

The majority of the giveaways are on blogs and use a program called a rafflecopter. Sometimes you can have one entry or even 20-30. It all depends on how it's set up and how many entries you're willing to participate in. There's usually always 1 entry just because (not always) then multiple ways to add extras. If you have twitter, Facebook, Google +, or GFC, you can add in more entries by liking or following the sponsor's pages. You can also share the giveaway with your friends using those same methods and sometimes receive extras as well. Yes, this can make your Facebook or twitter wall fill up with businesses but I think if you win things for free, it's worth it? It's all up to how much is it worth to you? I signed up for twitter just to do the giveaways so that really doesn't bother me much. Sometimes it's a bit much on Facebook, but it's worth it to me.

My first win! 2 pack of rumparooz NB AIO
The following are some of the sites that have giveaways, I will be adding more as I come across them:

Change posts a list every Friday
Baby Giveaways Galore usually has a few going on a regular basis
A year with mom and dad usually have a few going on as well. Not all cloth diapers
Mommy of One and Counting  has misc giveaways

There are of course a ton more sites out there and a lot of times I'll see them posted in my news feed now that I *like* all of these pages. You just have to be diligent on watching, but here is a good place to start!

Please let me know if you've won anything, I would love to celebrate with you! :0)
