Country Kids Training Pants Review and Giveaway! CLOSED!!

Standard

Country Kids sent me a set of training pants to review, one night time pant and one day time pant. They are really adorable. They are VERY absorbent in case of accidents.

I have to be honest though, because I have always promised to be! I found them to be a little difficult for my 2 yr old to pull up and down, and she has reached that stage where she must do it herself, they are also somewhat bulky and they take awhile to dry. I do wish that both pairs came with side snaps to make the night time trainer easier to take off when there is an accident.

I have to add though that the small problems I have with them are WAY outweighed by the good!

Because… Putter’s LOVES them, and always asks for them to be put on. And I can’t blame her, because for all my thoughts on them, good or bad, she is the one wearing them, and they ARE super soft and comfy and “too toot.” In her words. And these reviews can’t always be about what I think, especially when I am not the one actually using the product! At times I wish she could type, then she could share what she feels about something!

Here they are…

Lisa at country kids has this to say about her life:

“I am a stay at home mom to three beautiful children. I love to craft and sew and garden. We live on a small farm in western Wisconsin. In addition to raising babies, we raise beef and lamb and have too many pets including chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, goats, horses, mules, rabbits, and a couple of crazy cats.

I learned to sew as a child and started sewing again why my first child was born. One day I stumbled across an article on cloth diapering and making cloth diapers and trainers became an obsession!”

Wow, and I thought having just a dog to care for took a lot of time! I don’t know where she finds the time to sew and craft and her blog is a treasure trove of laughter and cute stories as well as great crafting ideas and more for those of you who do those things! These trainers are superbly made, the seams are very strong, and I have not found any dropped stitches. The snaps on the day time trainer are very strong and don’t pop open like other snaps I have had do! These are great trainers for beginning potty trainers because they will hold as much as a diaper in the case of accidents, or oops I completely forgot to take my child potty times! I do wish I had ordered the next size up so they will fit longer! They are great for going out and about when you may not be able to get to a restroom in time because they really do hold as much as a cloth diaper!

Lisa has also wonderfully offered a reader the chance to win an adorable daytime trainer, and she is offering FREE shipping for the rest of July on any orders over $25 to anyone who let’s her know I referred them to her site!

Bambo Nature Eco Friendly Disposable Diaper WINNERS!

Standard

Wow that was really hard to choose! All your comments on diapers were GREAT! But I had to chose and so I did! The Grand Prize Winner were chosen by their comments and Runner Ups were chosen by Random.org!

Here are the 3 Runner Up Winners, You will each receive a package of Bambo Nature Disposable Diapers in your choice of size!!

First Runner Up Winner Is: Cali Number 11!!
“I follow via gfc and I use cloth diapers and I look for a good fit in a good diaper. after almost a year of using my cloth diapers, I think I should strip them, but I wasn’t sure what I was going to use during this process, so these diapers would be a great alternative during this time. I also use disposables with newborns…because frankly I am tired and not doing laundry during this time…and since I am now expecting my second child. I’ve been trying to find a diaper that I could use during the first couple weeks, without making me feel completely guilty about using a disposable.”

Second Runner Up Winner Is: Mama Chocolate Number 22!
“I’m a public GFC follower, and one of the things I look for in disposables (for those times when they come in handy!) is no stinky chemicals! I can’t believe how much more a disposable stinks than a cloth diaper, just because of the nasty chemicals.”

The first thing I noticed about the Bambo Nature Diapers, when I opened them, was that there was literally NO smell!! No chemical smell, nothing! I was amazed just by that! The last package of disposables I bought, the smell made my stomach turn it was so strong! :O)

Third Runner Up Winner Is: Jenilee Number 25!!
“I look for absorbency and safety in a diaper. After years of ignorance, I have learned that all diapers are NOT equal. I love Bambo Nature. :)”

Now for the GRAND PRIZE WINNERS!! You will both receive a CASE of Bamboo Nature Disposable Diapers in your choice of size.

First Grand Prize Winner Is: TubbyTelly Number 13!!
I look for diapers that have the least amount of chemicals because I have an allergy-laden/sensitive-skinned baby. I only use the “environmental” chlorine-free diapers. I think Bambo Nature would be a great allergy-free alternative to use.

Second Grand Prize Winner Is: Slang76 Number 42!!
My daughter has to wear disposables to daycare…and I would LOVE to find one that doesn’t give her a rash AND is better for the environment AND doesn’t send her poo into her socks 🙂

Because we all need diapers that don’t send poo into our babies socks!! That is one of the things every one of us looks for in a good diaper!! You will find what you are looking for in these diapers! I have not had a single leak or rash and they are much better for the environment then any other disposable you will find!

Congratulations to ALL the winners! Thank you everyone for your great comments! I wish you had all won! Thank you Bambo Nature for the great giveaway! I will be emailing the winners shortly, and you will have 48 hours to respond to claim your prize before I pick a new winner!

Be Blessed…
