**Edited with more opportunities to win!**
Two things that I really really love: Consignment Shopping, and Goodmama Cloth Diapers!
I've been using Goodmamas for a year now, and absolutely LOVE them! They are the majority of my large cloth diaper stash, and I can never get enough of them! They're not only luxurious, adorable, ridiculously absorbent diapers, but they're also collector's items! Suzanne Atwood, the owner of Goodmama Diapers, usually releases her diaper prints and types one stocking at a time. This creates a very limited number of certain types and prints of Goodmamas, so if you have your heart set on a certain print, it can be like a scanvenger hunt to track it down and purchase it. I've been an active member of buying, selling and trading Goodmama diapers since I found out about GMs a year ago, and it is very exciting!
That is why, a few days ago, when I spotted a Goodmama Skully One in amazing condition at a local consignment shop, I leapt at the opportunity to buy it (and for half the price that one would pay for a GM in such condition!). The employee at the consignment shop informed me that the GM was new, but judging from the slightly fluffy, amazingly soft bamboo fleece on the underside of the cotton velour soaker, it appears as though it's been washed maybe once (as resell shops tend to do). This Goodmama wasn't exactly "my style", but I figured it would make a pretty good trade, since people often seek out the all-in-one version of Goodmama known as "One's". The only fault with the diaper was that the tag appeared as though it had intentionally been slashed.
It wasn't until I mentioned the diaper on the Goodmama fan page that I was informed that a Goodmama diaper with a cut/slashed tag means that it was one of the brand new GMs that the lovely owner, Suzanne Atwood, donated for free to the Cloth Diaper Foundation before they were shut down shortly thereafter. I felt upset that a diaper that was meant to be given away for free was out there being sold, and I no longer felt right offering the diaper up for trade or sell, even though I had paid for it myself, and even though I had gotten a lot of interest in the diaper. I decided that I was going to give it away for free, as it was meant to be.
(By the way, the above picture of the Goodmama Skully One was taken by me, this is the exact diaper that I will be giving away!)
So here I am, giving away this awesome Goodmama diaper on my blog. Admittedly, a Goodmama collection is a costly endeavor. Brand new Goodmama's can run anywhere from $35-$55+. Highly sought-after GMs can get into the $100's. Now thats one fancy booty! But in my experience and opinion, Goodmama's are well worth their retail price due to their excellent quality, adorableness, and absorbency! (95% of the time, my son wears his Goodmama fitteds without a cover, and the Ones have never been a problem!) I think that every cloth-diapering parent should be able to have the chance to try a Goodmama, so it is my hopes that even those who are not yet "Goodmama Llamas" will also enter this giveaway!
I would like to NOTE that my blog is NOT sponsored in any way, I do not run ads, and I am in NO WAY benefitting monetarily from this giveaway or the attention that it may bring to my blog. My only hope is to give away a Goodmama diaper that was meant to be given for free, and I also admit to hoping that the word of my blog may be spread and shared. My blog is still a baby. I do not have many fans or followers, and I've only recently resurrected it, after many requests from my friends to start blogging again. Many of my friends come to me with questions about cloth diapering and natural parenting, and I participate actively on forums and groups on these subjects. I have much knowledge and experience to share with others, and my only hope through my blog is to get the word out about Natural parenting. I have 3 children, all in which I have extended breastfed, 2 of which I have cloth diapered (and am still cloth diapering my youngest), and all in which I have attachment parented (as in, co-sleeping/bedsharing, babywearing, never CIO, etc) and which I have raised naturally, organically and am continuing to grow to be as pure and simple as possible. We are a growing family, as my husband and I plan to TTC within the next few months, and intend to have a homebirth with our next child.
Now, back to the issue at hand.
