One thing I love about entering giveaways is connecting with blogs (and parents!) that are naturally oriented.
J and his mother over at Happily Southern have wanted to use cloth diapers, but J is 40 pounds and has Down syndrome, so they figured there was nothing out there that would fit him and other special-needs kids. One Southern Girl was complaining about the lack on Twitter, which is always the way to do things, trust me!1
Less than a week later, a package arived. On the back it read, "you got fluffy mail! ♥ fancygrlnancy". Inside was a FuzziBunz Perfect Size Large in Baby Blue! I immediately put it on J after recovering my breath! His sigh as I stood him up made up our minds to cloth diaper him full time. As soon as we got the diapers!
So Happily Southern is launching an event to give away cloth diapers but more than that. The Fluffdom Express will be
geared to helping families of children with Special Needs find diapers for their child and helping families decide what diapers to use in a hospital setting!
Very cool, no?
Stay tuned for this August event. If you want to spread the news about the event as I've done, you'll get extra entries into the giveaway. If you tell Happily Southern I referred you, I get even more extra entries (pretty please and thank you!).
And if you're looking to build a fluff stash for bigger babies or children, this is good news!2

2Mikko wasn't special needs, but he was large. We cloth diapered him till he was 23 months and 35+ pounds (see below for a visual of the adora-bulk). We had custom covers made by a WAHM on eBay, and we had that peculiar heartbreak of seeing a string of too-small cloth-diapering options pass us by and go back into the closet. :)↩
