Knickernappies 2nd Annual Photo Contest has begun! Enter and you could win 6 Knickernappies diapers!

Have you seen this post over at the Knickernappies Blog?

We're are so excited to announce the launch of our 2nd Annual Knickernappies Photo Contest and this year it's bigger and better than ever! The Grand Prize is huge and what's the best part? You're in control of your own destiny. There's no mystery panel of judges who randomly announce a winner, this time you promote your photo and get as many votes as you can.

Here are the details:

When: Contest runs from April 15-May 15, 2010

Where: Knickernappies FaceBook Page

How to enter: To enter the contest you must be a Fan of Knickernappies on FaceBook. After you’ve become a Fan you need to upload a photo of your little wearing a Knickernappies Diaper. One entry per person please. In the comments for your photo please add the URL to the store where you purchased the diaper. Make sure to include a clickable link to the store, not just the name.

Eligible photos must be uploaded to the Fan Photos between April 15 through May 15. If you already have a Fan Photo uploaded that you’d like to use as your entry then you need to upload it again so that it will have the proper date and also a link to the retailer.

If your photo does not include a link to a Knickernappies Retailer in the comments it will be deleted and you will have to resubmit, so make sure you dont forget to name Moms and Bums as your retailer.

How do you get votes? Every time someone “LIKES” your photo it is a vote. When the contest ends the photo with the most “LIKES” is the winner. Comments are encouraged as well but do not count as votes.

How do I promote my photo? We’ve provided a handy “Vote for Me” button on the left hand column of the Blog. You simply grab the code and replace the code/url that says http://www.knickernappies.bogspot.com with the url to your Fan Photo. You can then place the button on your Blog or Website, on Message Boards, Your FaceBook page, etc. and encourage friends and family to vote for your photo by “LIKING” it.

Another GREAT and EASY way to promote your photo is to “SHARE” it via FaceBook. When you are on your photo in our FB Fan Photos you will see a link to “SHARE” it with your friends and family via your FaceBook Page. When you share it you need to make sure to let your friends and family know that they need to click through the link to the Knickernappies FB Page to “LIKE” it. Liking it on your page when you share it is not the same as liking it on the KN FB Page.

What are the prizes?

Grand Prize-(1 Winner) 6 Knickernappies 2G Sized Pocket Diapers with your choice of inserts (Just Hemp, Microfiber, Loopy-Do’s), color, and size!
Runner Up’s- (5 Winners) 1 Knickernappies 2G Sized Pocket Diapers with your choice of inserts (Just Hemp, Microfiber, Loopy-Do’s), color, and size!

*This contest is open to participants worldwide!

Gabriel's Picks- #1 Premmie Prefolds and Super Brite Covers by Bummis

We are always asked which cloth diapers we use and what we prefer, so we decided it was time to share:) Over the next few weeks we are going to highlight some great cloth diapers that we found worked the best for Gabriel. First you may need a bit of background. Gabriel was born January 24th at 5lbs 3oz and 34 weeks gestation. He is our 3rd child, our second to use cloth diapers (the nurses in the NICU were not open to cloth, so he was 2 weeks old before we started, and had just passed his birth weight).We used a variety of diapers on him, some fitting much better than others. My favorite was Bummis preemie prefolds with a preemie/newborn super brite cover. He has since outgrown the Preemie/newborn cover (at just over 10lbs and nearly 3 months old) so we have moved up to small Bummis Super Brites and xs Thirsties covers. The prefolds are however still fitting great, and seem to get softer with each wash! We will have to update when they become too small for him.
A note on Thirsties xs covers and AIO's- Although the design for Thirsties and Bummis are quite similar, (with Bummis being made right here in Canada) we found that the leg holes with Thirsties were much larger than the Bummis ones- allowing for our preemie with the common preemie "chicken legs" to pee right out of them. Gabriel was about 8lbs before he was able to wear them without leaks.
We definitely would recommend Bummis Newborn Super Brite Covers and Premmie Prefolds for small newborns and preemies.
Why did we chose the Super Brite over the Super Whisper? The leg gussets of course! If you havent had a newborn, then you may not know about the liquid poops that come along with them. You see until a baby begins solid foods poops are generally liquid, and sometimes seedy liquid- gross right! Without those legs gussets you run the risk of that liquid poop leaking right out the sides of the diaper... ask a mom who used disposables how many outfits they ruined with blowouts. Here at Moms and Bums we are all about the leg gussets!
Check out the great video below made by Bummis on how to use their prefolds and stay tuned for the next edition of Gabriels Picks coming soon...

Sugar Peas Single Layer Windpro Fleece Covers

Sugar Peas Windpro Fleece Diaper Covers are made of 1 layer of heavyweight Malden Mills Windpro Fleece for lots of protection yet a TRIM fit! These covers work so much better than the typical 2 layer polar fleece covers and yet they are much trimmer!

They work great for daytime and night for most, except the heaviest wetters. Side snaps give a great fit with good coverage over any diaper.

Two snaps at the back allow this cover to be turned into a Fleece-in-One by purchasing a Sugar Peas snap-in diaper!

Small fits 8-18lbs
Medium fits 16-28lbs
Large fits 26lbs+

Sugar Peas Snap-In Pea 'n the Pod Diaper
This Snap in Diaper turns any of your Sugar Peas covers into a Pea in the Pod All in One Diaper!
All of our covers are made with a set of snaps to pop this little semi-fitted diaper into so they can be put on your wiggly baby in one simple step. This diaper also works well in many other diaper covers as a lay in contour diaper.

Made entirely of 55% hemp / 45% organic cotton fleece. They now feature a built in fold out soaker (like the Sugar Peas 2-size fitted diaper) for ease of use and faster washing and drying! Elastic at the legs and back for a snug fit and to help keep messes in.

Add a Sugar Peas Windpro Fleece Cover to make a Pea in the Pod All in One Diaper!!

We have recently upgraded our shopping cart and we are just putting up the finishing touches. Unfortunately some of the files were not able to be transfered to the upgraded cart and we are slowly manually adding them. Amoung these was the "Users" files, so if you have tried to log on in the past couple of days you will have noticed that you were no longer a member. We are working to correct this and are re-adding all of the memberships by hand- with 350+ members it is taking us a while! As your membership fiole is redone you should receive an email with a new password- you will need to change this password on your first login.

We are also slowly working at repairing some broken links, and redoing logos, banners and info pages. Should you find any broken links or missing pages during your shopping please let us know.

Earth Week is quickly approaching! As a special bonus for earth week we will be featuring a new product each day that will be drastically reduced in price. You will need to tune into our facebook group and blog for the inside scoop!

We will also be doing a few giveaways over the next few weeks leading up to the upcoming Mom to Mom sale on May 15th. Please note that in order to avoid any oversales in products we will be closing the online store on May 15th while we are away at the Mom to Mom sale- it should be back up and running by 3pm.
