PureBebe Super Stars ~Giveaway Closed~

These stars are wipe solution and they are awesome! It is very simple. Just put a star in at least 8 oz. of water (I use a little about 12 oz.) and heat to dissolve.

I fill up a cup of water and put a star in. I heat it up for a minute in the microwave (stirring half way through). They dissolve very quickly and smell amazing! I fold my wipes so they pop up like disposable baby wipes (in an old container of baby wipes) and just pour the water mixture on top. Very easy!
I am planning on giving two of you lucky ladies a sample of PureBebe's super stars! Make sure you "like" Ramblings of a Cloth Diaper Addict on Facebook and tell me which scent you would pick if you bought them. (If you win you get Strawberry Fields) There will be 2 winners for this giveaway! After you've done this, come back and comment here! (Only ONE comment PER PERSON on the blog) VERY simple to enter : )
For every person you refer to my Facebook page, you get an EXTRA entry into the giveaway! Just make sure they post on the wall who sent them. (Example: Sara Smith wrote on the wall "Michelle Smith sent me". Michelle gets an extra entry.)
If you have questions you can write them on the wall of our facebook page and I will answer as soon as possible.
Winners will be contacted by email so make sure you put your email address in the comments. If the winners don't respond in 48 hours, I will draw new winners.
You can also buy them here!

Cotton Cheeks Mama Pads

Since I am giving one away, I figured I might as well do a review on them right : ) So what are mama pads? Well to be straight forward, reusable pads. I know what you are thinking. Eww! Gross. Why would you do that?! I thought the same thing when I first heard about them. But (I'm sorry but I am going to be VERY blunt for this review) there are sometimes (like when I first start my period but don't know it) when I bleed a little in my undies. It's true and I know it happens to everyone. What do you do? Throw the undies away? I'm cheap so heck NO! I wash them. I know it's not exactly the same kind of thing but that's how I got use to the idea.
Disposable pads are full of chemicals and tampons are even worse. I've always been a tampon kind of girl and TSS has always scared me even when I was younger. These are chemical free and save you tons of money! Plus these are COMFY and breathable! No more feeling like you are wearing a diaper. (Wasn't there a commercial that said that forever ago? Do you remember it?) I wish I would have discovered these sooner!

I am in LOVE with these pads! I have about 5 different brands and these are by far my favorite!! They are perfect in all ways. They are the right length (mine are 9 inch), they fit perfectly in my undies (to be blunt), and they are COMFY!!! The minky make them SO SO SO nice! It's like you are sitting on a cloud (okay maybe that's a little over exaggerated but they are very nice!) They don't leak (mine don't have PUL but you can add them to the pads for $1 more). I know some people are worried about that but I've never had leaks with Cotton Cheeks pads. I love the fabric choices she has too. Aren't they so cute?
They are $3 each (9 in. liner) and you can buy them here when she does her stocking on February 18th. Seriously, you will love them!

*EDITED* I also wanted to add that a lot of moms claim that their cramps are lighter and flow not as heavy when using mama pads. When I first heard this I thought "What a load of crap!" I've been using mama pads for about 4 months now and my periods and cramps have gotten better! Before using mama cloth, I had BAD cramps for the first 2 days. So bad that they would wake me up at night! Now, I only have bad cramps for about a half a day. I'm not miserable for the first few days anymore. Crazy I know! I don't understand it but I love it!

Another really cool thing about these pads is the star. One star is a light pad/panty liner. Two stars are is medium flow. And of course three stars is heavy flow. Makes it REALLY nice and convenient when you are unsure which is which.
