Have a Knickernappies diaper? Enter their 2nd Annual Photo Contest and you could win 6 KN diapers!

Have you seen this post over at the Knickernappies Blog?
We're are so excited to announce the launch of our 2nd Annual Knickernappies Photo Contest and this year it's bigger and better than ever! The Grand Prize is huge and what's the best part? You're in control of your own destiny. There's no mystery panel of judges who randomly announce a winner, this time you promote your photo and get as many votes as you can.

Here are the details:

When: Contest runs from April 15-May 15, 2010

Where: Knickernappies FaceBook Page

How to enter: To enter the contest you must be a Fan of Knickernappies on FaceBook. After you've become a Fan you need to upload a photo of your little wearing a Knickernappies Diaper. One entry per person please. In the comments for your photo please add the URL to the store where you purchased the diaper. Make sure to include a clickable link to the store, not just the name.

Eligible photos must be uploaded to the Fan Photos between April 15 through May 15. If you already have a Fan Photo uploaded that you'd like to use as your entry then you need to upload it again so that it will have the proper date and also a link to the retailer.

If your photo does not include a link to a Knickernappies Retailer in the comments it will be deleted and you will have to resubmit . If you don't know the store name or didn't get the diaper new just say so.

How do you get votes? Every time someone "LIKES" your photo it is a vote. When the contest ends the photo with the most "LIKES" is the winner. Comments are encouraged as well but do not count as votes.

How do I promote my photo? We've provided a handy "Vote for Me" button on the left hand column of the Blog. You simply grab the code and replace the code/url that says with the url to your Fan Photo. You can then place the button on your Blog or Website, on Message Boards, Your FaceBook page, etc. and encourage friends and family to vote for your photo by "LIKING" it.

Another GREAT and EASY way to promote your photo is to "SHARE" it via FaceBook. When you are on your photo in our FB Fan Photos you will see a link to "SHARE" it with your friends and family via your FaceBook Page. When you share it you need to make sure to let your friends and family know that they need to click through the link to the Knickernappies FB Page to "LIKE" it. Liking it on your page when you share it is not the same as liking it on the KN FB Page.

What are the prizes?

Grand Prize-(1 Winner) 6 Knickernappies 2G Sized Pocket Diapers with your choice of inserts (Just Hemp, Microfiber, Loopy-Do's), color, and size!
Runner Up's- (5 Winners) 1 Knickernappies 2G Sized Pocket Diapers with your choice of inserts (Just Hemp, Microfiber, Loopy-Do's), color, and size!

But what about the retailers?
Knickernappies will match each winners prize as a donation to The Cloth Diaper Foundation (formerly Miracle Diapers) on the each of the retailers behalf!

Have questions? Post your questions here or visit our FaceBook Page where we'll have a discussion in our discussion forums started to answer your needs and help you with any issues you may have.

*This contest is open to participants worldwide!

Just Julie: Ever sent a diaper or diapers to their grave?

I bet you we've all done it, sent a diaper into the beyond, ended it's career of covering little bums. I'd have to say my first experience in sending diapers to their grave could be considered a mass murder.

I was new at cloth diapering, very new, and hadn't yet got my washing routine down. In fact, I don't think I had any clue how long I could let them sit in the dry pail or what to do. I think I may have even washed some with my regular laundry at first, that was how clueless I was.

Well I distinctly remember going into the laundry room, which was basically part of our garage and not inside the house, and realizing I had a load of diapers in the pail that needed washing and I couldn't remember how long they'd been there. I swore it had only been a couple days but heck, I had twin infants and every day was a blur so I really couldn't be sure.

I dumped them in the washer and did my routine as usual. Fill, Soak, Rinse, Wash, Dry...When it came time to fold and stuff the diapers I realized the black mold of death had set in on them and I was super bummed. They weren't unusable I suppose but looked ugly and I couldn't stand seeing my babies in diapers that had mold stains. In all I think only about three were sent to their retirement and the others survived.

It was honestly the last time I did that. I decided that the whole "outta sight, outta mind" thing was not a good idea with the diaper pail. I needed it somewhere that I wasn't going to forget about it. From then on I pretty much washed diapers every day.

Have you ever sent any diapers to their death? If so, share your story with us I'd love to read them!
