pcg-diaperHave you ever been to a landfill site? I know this isn’t the prettiest thing to be talking about during Baby Days but the number of disposable diapers in any given landfill site isn’t pretty either (don’t get me started on the number of plastic grocery bags blowing around—that’s another story).

When our son was born, we tried to do the responsible thing by using washable diapers. We even used a service that would drop off clean ones and pick up the not-so-clean ones. To get right to the point, it didn’t work out. There were issues with storing the not-so-clean ones until pick-up day. Yuckie!

Thankfully, disposable diapers have come a long way so parents can feel a little better about using them. The PC Green diaper is fragrance- and dye-free. They are made from wood pulp harvested from sustainably managed forests.  There’s no chlorine bleach used in the process. All good things. Plus they have a good fit and excellent absorbency.About $16 for the pack at Superstore and Loblaws. A pack is included in our prize giveaway.

WIN! Baby Days: Indigo April 7, 2009

3sprouts-organic-chico-cream-foldWhen you’re thinking about gifts for baby (either your own or someone else’s), Indigo might not be the first place that comes to mind. But it should be. First, the soothing atmosphere makes it a great place to hang out if you’re eight months pregnant or up to your eyeballs in alligators at the office. Second, if you have children, they stay occupied in the play area while you saunter through the aisles checking out all the games, books, toys, decor items and clothing for babies.

You’ll find Yummy Bear Banks in vibrant colours, a Farmyard Fun book that helps little ones learn their ABCs and frames to showcase the World’s Best Looking kid.

Our prize from Indigo includes:

  • 3 Sprouts Organic Chico Towel, $34. Generously sized bath towel perfect for your new baby or toddler. Made out of 100% organic cotton.
  • Peachtree Baby ID Bracelet Frame, $45.99. Now the little hospital I.D. bracelet which your child once wore can now be uniquely displayed and cherished forever. The hand finished white shadowbox frame and spaced glass are designed to give a simple and elegant presentation.
