- The Cloth Diaper Report, Kam Snas! Ends 10/14
Whether you want to make diapers in bulk, a few for fun or make baby accessories like pacifier clips, poly resin snaps are a must have. I have used snap pliers before, about a year ago, and found that although they did the job the snap press was easier to use and created a more stable snap. I really wanted to give the KAM snap pliers a shot, however, and found that they did a better job than the pliers I had tried before. These also come with an awl which I hadn't tried before and it makes it SO much easier. There is a little learning curve with snap pliers, however, but I'd say if you practice about a dozen studs and a dozen sockets on some scrap fabric you will get the hang of it in no time.
Note: Snaps are the most secure between at least 2 layers of PUL or thinner fabric. Cloth diapers, for example will work best if you use scraps of the fabric after cutting out your pattern as an extra layer in the inner/back side of the fabric. For more details and instructions visit KAM snaps.
Win it!2. My Wee View Bored Inc. It's too cute to be bored.

This giveaway will end on October 14, 2009 at midnight CST and is open to the U.S. The winner will be drawn via random.org and will have 48 hours to respond or another winner will be drawn.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^5. Diry Diaper Laundry: EC Wear ECA Pants Review and Giveaway
If you are an ECing parent, these aren’t a must have, but they do make your life so much easier! Sometimes I find myself being lazy about EC (especially for a few weeks where we took a “break” with life being so hectic) and when I think about having to take off pants, undo diaper, potty, then chase the baby while I try to put a diaper and pants back on, I get exhausted by the thought. Having an easy way to EC can certainly keep me focused on my son and his needs, even when the day is jam packed.
About EC Wear:
EC Wear LLC, based in New York City, is owned and operated by Marija, a work-at-home-mom (WAHM). Marija and her husband Chuck have been practicing Elimiination Communication with their son since his birth. Initially, their interest came out of concern for the environment and dislike of disposable diapers. Eventually, they realized the best benefit of EC was for their son’s health. At EC Wear you will find clothes in sizes newborn to 24 months that are made in USA, Canada, Europe, or Australia, fair trade, or made by women in their homes or in workers’ cooperatives. It is our priority to disclose the origins of every item we sell. Of course, nearly all of the clothing is suitable for any parents who are looking for convenience in clothing and diaper changes, whether practicing EC or not.
For the first entry, visit ECwear.com and browse the items, then come back and leave a comment telling me what else you like that she sells. In this comment please leave your email in blank at hotmail dot com format. This entry is mandatory!Ends October 15th

Help Avon support breast cancer awareness by shopping for breast cancer awareness products.
Enter the Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway! There will be four giveaways this month. Each giveaway include a piece of jewelry supporting breast cancer awareness and a Breast Health Resource Guide.
This week’s giveaway is a Breast Cancer Awareness Charm Bracelet.
The fabric is that it is really soft and will not scratch your childs hands as they retreive the snacks and you can turn the mug upside down and the food stays inside. The Munchie Mug is ideal for travel, it allows you to take snacks on the road, keep them fresh but still allows for easy access without the worry of all the mess. Any parent knows that part of their daily routine is cleaning up the mess; Munchie Mug eliminates the need to vacuum up those little bits of crackers from the floor every single day. According to the website, recommended age is 10 months.
Rather than use lots of little baggies, the Munchie Mug is the perfect snack container for the enviro-friendly family. It is made from 100% percent recycled materials, it is BPA and phthalate free and the inks used exceed FDA food standards.
Last but not least, if you have more than one little person who has a Munchie Mug, there is a small writable band on the lower portion of the special lid where names may be placed with a permanent marking pen. How very clever. The munchie Mug goes in the top rack of the dishwasher (another bonus) and is really easy to dry the fabric, just squish between a dish cloth and or air dry.
