As you can probably see, we’re in a new place! We’re now located at http://www.freckleberryfinds.com. Wahoo! 
However, with that awesome move comes a bit of work. I know the blog looks a little wonky, but I’m working hard to get it back to normal. Giveaways will still be held and all will operate normally—it just wont look normal for a bit! However, make sure any new comments are made on freckleberryfinds.com! Thanks so much for your patience, guys!

Thirsties Cloth Diapers Review + Giveaway


It's raining fluff at my house! Now that we have two kiddos in cloth, I'm finding cloth diapers all over the place! The variety of diapers is refreshing, and I'm finding tons of different styles of diapers that I love. Pretty much the moment I found out I was pregnant with Maisy, I started thinking about what kind of diapers I'd use for her. Pockets? Prefolds and covers? What would work best for a newborn's frequent changes and runny breastfeeding poop? After loads of research, I decided that a system utilizing wipeable covers would be the best option for me.


That's when I discovered Thirsties. Launched in 2004, they make quality diapers at affordable prices. Thirsties is somewhat of a rarity these days, in fact. They are based right here in the USA, with a group of women making the products in their own homes. Don't be phased, though---these diapers are top notch quality! They are sure to use the best materials in their products, and it really shows!

Thirsties Duo Fab Fitted. I love that you can add extra inserts for customized absorption!
From pocket diapers to prefolds, Thirsties has you covered! I received the Duo Fab Fitted and Duo Wrap to try out on my newest little one. First, let me just say how cute the colors are! I love the girly look of the orchid cover. It gives a feminine look without being loud and PINK. I love that the Duo Wrap cover is available in snaps, too! With double gussets, this sucker is sure to keep in any explosive poops. They didn't leave any red marks on my baby, which is a major plus in my book! What's neat about Thirsties products is that they have two sizes, with each size having three individual rise settings. Make sense? That means you really get SIX sizes if you were to buy both size one and two for your kiddo! Talk about customized sizing!

The Duo Fab Fitted and Duo Wrap were a little big on my teeny tiny newborn who currently weighs in at 6 pounds 8 ounces. It would work, but it definitely is big! Once she bulks up a bit, this will be the perfect diaper for her!

Want to win a set of your own? Thirsties has generously offered one lucky Freckleberry Finds reader a Duo Fab Fitted AND a Duo Wrap!

Skin MD Review + Giveaway


If you'll travel back in time with me, you'll recall that I reviewed a fantastic product in April! Skin MD Natural is an incredibly effective lotion that truly restores your skin! I've been using it for quite a while now, and I can honestly say that this is better than any other lotion that I've used in the past. Here's a little bit of what I had to say about Skin MD back in April:


"This stuff is phenomenal! It's light, but it feels like a protective layer is covering my hands throughout the day.  It's fantastic! From the Skin MD Natural website: "Most moisturizers do not seal in the body's own moisture, they artificially lubricate the outer layers of skin. When they wear off, the lubrication is gone and the original dryness remains. Sometimes this process will draw out the body's natural moisture and contribute to the dehydration process.
Skin MD Natural has an added benefit of forming a natural barrier, sealant on the skin, keeping its own natural moisture inside. This eliminates the need for having to put an artificial moisturizer on several times during the day, as Skin MD Natural lasts a good portion of 8 hours with one application."
I feel 100% confident using this product on my entire family, including my kids. Skin MD Natural is free of parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, and other ingredients known to irritate skin. Not only that, but they're vegan, cruelty free, and eco-friendly. Did you know that they use 100% solar power to manufacture their product? That's amazing in and of itself!
Skin MD Natural healed my hands, truly. I even had slight cracking, and with a few days of regular (as in, once a day!) use, they were healed. I would absolutely recommend Skin MD Natural to anyone, dry skin or not!"
You know what's really awesome? Now you get a chance to win a full size bottle of Skin MD Natural!

Mudpuppy Review + Giveaway


My kids absolutely love puzzles. Love 'em! It's so fun to watch them figure out what piece comes next in order to see "the big picture". But they always tend to lose pieces, or the edges get frayed due to hours and hours of play. I know we have puzzles that have seen better days!

Mudpuppy has a fantastic puzzle that I knew my kids (and yours!) would love! It's a block puzzle--don't worry, I'd never seen one, either! But this is such a neat idea, you have to learn more about it! Instead of just one puzzle image, you get SIX! Each side of the nine cubes has a portion of a different puzzle picture on it. Just spin it around to find the right image! My kids loved this concept, and I loved that I only had to store one box instead of multiple boxes. Here's some more information about the block puzzles:

Parent and baby animals are the Forest Friends of Mudpuppy's sweet block puzzle. Lorena Siminovich of Petit Collage has illustrated owls, raccoons, deer, foxes, brown bears, and squirrels. Turn the blocks to put together six different views of nature at its gentlest moments!
  • 9 2-inch cubes to use as building blocks or
  • Form 6 different puzzle pictures
  • Sturdy box with sliding drawer
  • For ages 3+
  • Printed with nontoxic, soy-based inks
  • Puzzle cube greyboard contains 90% recycled paper
  • CE and ASTM tested for safety
I love that the puzzle fits neatly inside the little sliding drawer. Pieces aren't lost, and it's a great place for the kids to assemble the puzzle. Learning made fun--that's what I'm talkin' about!

You can purchase a block puzzle from Mudpuppy for $15.00.

OR you can WIN one! One lucky Freckleberry Finds reader will win a Forest Friends Block Puzzle from Mudpuppy!
