The First GentlyMade Giveaway!!!

I am so happy to announce the first GentlyMade Giveaway, just in time for the holidays! After receiving a very generous donation of some gorgeous sweaters, I decided to pass along my good fortune and stitch up a cozy and luxurious sleep sack for some lucky baby to enjoy. This holly-adorned cashmere wearable blanket is sure to keep your little one warm and festive. This will fit through most of the first year. Pull it up over your baby’s tummy to keep their whole body warm when they are small, and move it down to the waist as they grow.

The rules are simple. “Like” us on Facebook, respond to the post announcing the giveaway, and tell as many people as you can! We are working on the honor system here, so please help us spread the word about GentlyMade as best you can. Oh and I also want to mention that you need not be a mama to enter. This is open to all. So if you know anyone who would enjoy this sweet blanket, please enter on their behalf!

The winner will be chosen by a random number generator on December 4th and announced on Facebook. Happy Holidays from GentlyMade!

The Summertime Challenge

The warm weather is finally making it’s way to frosty Ithaca, NY. The sun is shining, and babies all over town are stretching out their legs, finally free of snow pants. It is time to put forth my summertime challenge.

Most cloth diapering parents can get on board with wool covers. Natural fibers, breathable, recycled… what’s not to love? But when the warm weather comes rolling in, most bail on their woolies. Those sweet little sweater butts lose their appeal when it is 75 and sunny.

I understand, really I do. I mean who would want to wear a wool sweater on a sunny day? Not me. But I’d choose that wool sweater over a trash bag in a heartbeat.

That is the part that is so easy to forget. It is not wool versus cotton. It is wool versus vinyl. So give your woollies a shot. Your baby will thank you. Since wool is so breathable, your baby will not overheat. And look how cute they are!
