The Great Cloth Diaper Hunt (GCDH)


I stumbled upon the semi-annual Great Cloth Diaper Hunt this past May and had a ball. Ok, I got obsessed with finding the hidden icons on hundreds of sites, but I discovered many new sites. It was also right after I started writing diaper reviews on this blog and decided to make my blog what it is today. I have come a long way and decided to become a sponsor this time around. Yet another reason for my hubby to call blogging my hobby and not a job, because I always find new ways to spend money. Haha.

What is the GCDH? You will want to know so you have the full month to find the icons instead of only two weeks like I had in May since I was late in discovering the hunt. I am trying to make sure that isn’t you, because there are still almost 2 weeks until the event starts. There are 174 sponsors this round (the max allowed is 175), and they are not just cloth diaper businesses. You’ll find a refreshing sprinkle of different items, but will also find great new CD sites and products.

Basically the way it works is that you register, and starting on November 1st you follow the clues on each of the websites to find the diaper icon (like the one pictured below). Some websites are harder to find than others, and you will go crazy trying to find the extreme sponsor icons! There will also be a hint forum open to ask questions about the location of icons, but they will not flat out tell you where the icon is and revealing the location of the icon if you have already found it is forbidden. That would just spoil all the fun.

Win prizes (donated by sponsors) based on the number of icons you find. There is a daily prize, grand prize worth over $600 and second/third prizes. I donated Indian Cotton prefolds, which are my favorite prefolds. Registration has just opened, so get your email address registered and sit tight until the hunt starts November 1st. The hunt will last for the entire month. Happy hunting!

I almost forgot to mention the Sponsor Packs! Many of the sponsor donate samples to be compiled into Sponsor Packs that are for sale in VERY limited quantities. These usually sell before the hunt even begins, but they will not be shipped until November 1st. Click here to see the details and see what companies participated in the packages.

  1. Yay! I am anxiously awaiting for the GCDH to start too! The last one was my first too and I loved it. I was excited that I was able to get a sponser pack this year!

  2. I almost forgot they were already up for sale. I added a note in my article to remind readers, too. I snagged some before they're all sold out. I hope I luck out and get some full sized samples :-)

  3. Sounds like a lot of fun:)
