I mentioned in my first post that my cloth diapering addiction actually started nearly four years ago…when Melissa started cloth diapering her younger daughter and then her son. What really got me hooked, though, was when Melissa introduced me to The Great Cloth Diaper Hunt.
I searched high and low for that cute little diaper (that really reminds me of an owl) in hopes that I could start my cloth diaper stash early. Of course, that didn’t happen. Any of the 3 times that I participated. But I did find many, many diapers and fell in love with some of the brands.
A few of the brands that I was introduced to through The Great Cloth Diaper Hunt (though I’m sure that many had already been around) are Blueberry/Swaddlebees, Crunchy Clean, AppleCheeks, and Sloomb/Sustainablebabyish. (In fact, I remember Sloomb VERY well because they were one of the Extreme Sites that I couldn’t find!)
For those of you who haven’t heard of the hunt before, the icon is hidden on each of the sponsor pages within 4 clicks of the main page. The Extreme Hunt sometimes requires figuring out clues, looking for hidden links, and even clicking through a whole page full of icons for the “right” one! Now, there is a forum specifically for the hunt, and sponsors will often post clues or help out hunters. They are required to help when asked, but how much they help depends on the sponsor. It’s definitely time-consuming, but it’s always fun to see the different stores and products.
You can sign up for the hunt at Diaper Decisions. If you’re interested but want more information, check out their FAQ page! And be sure to like their page on Facebook to see when new sponsors are added!
