Enter Our Spring Giveaway: Win a Free Assortment of CJ's Natural BUTTer, a Cloth-Friendly Diaper Rash Ointment

We're excited to sponsor another free Spring Giveaway this month! You can even earn extra entries (see How to Enter for full details).

1 lucky winner will receive a free assortment of CJ's BUTTer, a homemade amazing, natural, cloth-friendly diaper rash ointment: a 4 oz jar and 6 additional sampler scents.

CJ's BUTTer can be used to treat:

  • ezema
  • rashes
  • windburn
  • dry/chapped skin
  • rug burns
  • for postpartum relief (dissolve some in the bath for a soothing soak)
  • hang nails
  • and even as a treatment for smoothing ethnic hair

I cannot recommend this product highly enough!~ My newborn hates (let me reiterate - HATES) diaper changes, but his crying immediately stops when I put on his BUTTer. It is also available in a wide variety of scents - some smell good enough to eat.  It's also available in unscented if your child has super-sensitive skin.

It's a BOY~

I'm thrilled to announce the arrival of our first son, Oryn Oliver, via unassisted homebirth, on 3-9-10 at 8:23am after about an hour and a half labor.

He weighed in at a whopping 9lbs 3oz (at 38 weeks exactly!) and was 20 inches long. Daddy, big sisters and I are completely in love - he's very, very precious.

Check back for more pictures and the full birth story. I'd have to put him down to type it all out and I'm not willing to do that just yet ;-)
