My First Giveaway in Celebration of the New BumGenius 4.0 Release!


Have you heard?! BumGenius is discontinuing our beloved 3.0 one-sized diapers! Not only that, but they have announced their new additions! This includes snaps, new easy to replace elastic, 3 new colors, new velcro and refresher kits for velcro diapers, and it can now accommodate larger babies with a new size! Check out the product release video on their YouTube site HERE!

I am so excited that I have decided to hold a giveaway of BumGenius Odor Remover!

BumGenius Odor remover is a natural odor remover, you can use it to remove odors from your diapers directly, or in your diaper pail, laundry hamper, anything! It works by eliminating the odor causing bacteria. Best of all, it is free of all chemicals, oils, detergents, perfumes, and solvents, not to mention bio-degradable! So what does it contain? Just water and vegetative microbes!

I have not tested this product myself yet but since finding it am very tempted! I do not have stinky diapers but my laundry hampers and diaper bins sure could use a spritz of this!

You can learn more about the BumGenius Odor Remover on the Cotton Babies website HERE!


Win an 8 oz bottle of BumGenius Odor Remover!

My favorite natural product is made by Ivy Soapworks, they have an eBay store. I'm a huge fan of their dragons blood soap! The bars are 8 oz, so they're HUGE. They're cheap and have nothing toxic at all in them, which is why I adore their soaps. (They also have bath salts, foot soaks, and candles!)

I'm not a mom yet but I watched the video for BumGenius 4.0 diapers and I absolutely love the design! I think they look awesome and very easy to use for first time cloth diaperers as well as the experienced ones. They look very versatile.

I am curious about the new BG 4.0 Diapers. Glad to hear that they worked on the velcro issue lots of people were having. And I really can't wait to see some prints! hehe.

larson_a_0406@yahoo.com

crazyember6 said...

On your blog here, I would love to see more of daddys view on things (specially for my husband to see) and reviews on not just the cloth diapers, but on the best inserts to use, detergent(s), diaper sprayer, etc. I guess what I mean is all the stuff that makes modern cloth diapers convenient and more advanced these days. Oh and more giveaways when you have time! This is fun!

I like that the new BG4.0 will have snaps... very curious about them. Though, I have 3 of the 3.0s and like them just fine... however, my baby LOVES to take off the velcro and so snaps are my fav in the summer so that I can leave her in just a diaper!

As far as natural items, CD'ing has gotten me interested in mama cloth!

Stephanie @ Confessions of a Trophy Wife said...

My thoughts on the 4.0:

I'm actually really excited about the changes regarding higher rise, easy access to changing leg elastics, better velcro, and snaps as an option! However, I'm less than impressed with the 3 new colors, but I'm glad that they decided to keep producing the brights and I saw on their blog that there are new colors and *prints*(!) in the works! I'm really excited about that!

My favorite natural/non-toxic item is Earth Mama Angel Baby's - Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash. It smells so good and I love knowing that it is safe to use on my son!

Sarah Hull said...

I like the improvements made to the BG 4.0 diapers, I like that they have an option for snaps or velcro - because my hubby's preference is velcro and I like both for different reasons. I love the BG 3.0's that I have, so I am glad they didn't do any major changes to the product.

One natural/non-toxic product I'm interested in trying is Biokleen laundry and cleaning products. I've heard great things about the Bac-Out for getting stains out of cloth diapers.

I like that the new Bumgenius offers snaps and replaceable elastic, but I still wish there were more colors!! I'm not a fan of the new choices.

Bao said...

A few things I'd like to see on this blog (I work in webpage usability...please don't read these as criticisms, I just want you to get more traffic!):

1. Add an email subscription area and indicate to users where to find it (upper right corner is usually the best place).

2. Please indicate whether the giveaway ends at 11:59 AM or PM :)

3. Make your comment form into a pop-up. As someone entering into giveaways, I find that this is much friendlier for users!

4. Make your background brighter...or your text white. The lack of contrast is hard on readers' eyes.

5. Make the main text area (this middle portion) bigger. Or only do 2 columns. Research has shown that readers prefer the navigation & extraneous information on on the left (left-handed navigation) and the main content on the right.

6. Yes, it'd be great to hear from a male perspective on these reviews!

7. Finally, I'd love to see some cloth diaper giveaways :)

Thank you so much!!

my favorite non-toxic product... hard to decide! I think right now it would be goats milk soaps by indigo wild. They make the yummiest zum bar soaps!

about the new bumgenius diaper - I'm concerned about the larger cut - my kids are skinny, and I'm not sure how this will fit them.
