I purchased our one way tickets anticipating that she would have her baby late or on time... but a few days after I bought the tickets, little Ezra was born!
We arrived in Oregon and stayed a night with my mom (my sister lives 4 hours driving time from my mom's house, and my mom lives closest to the Portland airport)! Then we made the trip. I was so excited. I had packed some Fuzzi Bunz diapers that I had bought for her (from money donated by friends and family) during the buy 6 get 2 free Fuzzi Bunz deal! I also had several newborn cloth diapers to give her and try on Ezra for the purpose of reviews on the blog! Along with diapers I had been sent a few non-cloth diapering items for review for the upcoming "Newborns and Cloth" event which will be co-hosted by Rebecca over at "One More Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"
Here is a list of what I received:
1 Bitty Bee cloth diaper from The Little Bee Company
1 Bumgenius xs AIO diaper from Wee Willie Winks
1 Fuzzi Bunz xs diaper from The Green Jelly Bean
1 EcoBubs wool pocket diaper size small (from EcoBubs)
1 Organic fitted crib sheet from Mighty Nest
1 bag of Lulu's in the Fluff laundry powder from My Precious Kid LLC
1 Bitty Bum newborn diaper from Red Barn Cloth Diapers (Nifty Nappy)
1 container of Powdered Laundry detergent from Tropical/Household Traditions
1 Jar of Sheep in a Jar Potion #9, and 1 jar of Liquid Nifty Soap Nuts from Nifty Nappy
1 Pair of xs longies and 1 organic bamboo fitted (OBF) diaper from Sloomb
2 packs of Bamboobies nursing pads (1 pack regular, and 1 pack overnight) from Bamboobies
1 AMP small AI2 diaper from AMP
1 Lil Joey "Lil Monster" diaper from Madison Organics
1 Swaddlebees Mini Nappi from Cloth Diapers Inc.
1 Tiny Tush Elite mini pocket diaper from Better Cloth Diapers
1 bag of Redemption Soap (new, soap-free formula) laundry detergent from Redemption Soap

Adriane from Mommy's Own donated a bunch of items for my sister and her son! We received 1 Grovia newborn AIO diaper, a few packages of Earth Mama Angel Baby Monthly Comfort Tea, an Aden and Anais swaddle blanket, and a jar of Earth Mama Angel Baby nipple butter!!
Kim from Petite Bottoms also donated a bunch of items! She sent us a Rumparooz newborn diaper cover, a set of cloth wipes and a contoured cloth diaper (both made by Kim herself)!
I had such fun trying all these wonderful products with my sister and her gorgeous baby!
