No, you don't have to be expecting or have a newborn baby to enter the Newborns AND Cloth event. Many prizes that will be given away are gift certificates, or cloth diapers in winner's choice of size!
Today is a special day because not only do you have a chance to win an AMP AI2 diaper here from me, but you can also head over to my two other friend's blogs and enter to win some great stuff from them too! Of course "Newborns AND Cloth" is a joint event between myself and Rebecca over at One More Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest! You can head over to her blog today and enter to win an Itti Bitti Minky Blanket!! Also, my other friend Katie over at Crunchy Katie's Rants and Raves wanted in on the fun and so for the first day of the event, she is going to be joining us and is giving away two white Fuzzi Bunz diapers size medium!! Yes, that's right, one person will win two Fuzzi Bunz diapers!!
Okay, let's get on to the review and giveaway!!
My first sponsor for this event is AMP! I really love AMP diapers! I have tried AMP diapers before and have been really impressed! Annie of AMP diapers generously sent me a size small AI2 with a bamboo insert to take with me to Oregon to try on my little nephew Ezra!!
This is what I received:
To use an AI2 I simply folded the insert (after prepping) into thirds:
Now for all you AMP users out there, it is important when using this diaper on a newborn that you make sure to stretch the front panel towards the back to ensure a good fit. This diaper fit my nephew perfectly on the smallest setting! The diaper is so soft and stretchy which ensures a great customized fit! The AMP AI2 size small diapers are designed to fit babies from 6-18 lbs. AMP also has a size large AI2 which is designed to fit a baby from 15-35 lbs. So if AI2's are your choice in diaper, you only need two sizes that will last from birth to potty! There is a great video HERE that details how to use the AMP AI2 diaper! Oh, and did I mention that they also come in an array of beautiful colors?? And, they are made in Canada! <3
I am overall impressed with this diaper. As many of you probably know, when cloth diapering a newborn, their diapers have to be changed quite frequently (every 3 hrs or so)! This is one reason that using an AI2 for newborns is so awesome. When using the AI2 system, only the insert needs to be changed out during diaper changes! There is no need to change the cover as long as it has not been soiled!! The cover usually last between 2-4 diaper changes (assuming you don't have a 'blow-out')!!
The AMP AI2 diaper retails for $15.50 and the hemp inserts cost $5.50 (sold separately). You can easily find an authorized retailer through the AMP website!
But wait, of course that's not all!
As a sponsor for the Newborns AND Cloth event, Annie has graciously offered one LWML follower a chance to win an AMP AI2 diaper in choice of color and size, with a Hemp insert!!
