Treasures : A nappy giveaway CLOSED

When I was contacted about hosting a nappy giveaway on my blog, I was very interested in how competitive this company was going to be. I don't know about you, but our grocery bill goes up exponentially the moment a box of nappies enter the shopping trolley. Even with our attempts to use a combination of modern cloth nappies and disposable, we are still finding a huge cost to us!

Treasures is a New Zealand brand and are made in NZ. They have been around since 1975. They sent us over a packet of nappies to trial Mason on and I have to say that with a very attractive price tag, I was slightly dubious at how good they would be. Mason momentarily has decided he is off solids and has been having a lot of breastfeeds lately. This has resulted in runnier poos! I am proud to report that Treasures do not disappoint in terms of absorbency. And how cute are they with the Hairy Maclary pictures on them!

The lovely people over at Treasures are kindly giving away $75 worth of nappies to one of you fabulous readers (within Australia).

To enter the giveaway, please share a funny poo story! The funniest entry will win! Entries close 11.59pm AEDST on Tuesday 22nd April 2014. The winner will be announced on Monday the 28th of April 2014.

Good luck!


This giveaway is closed. Thank you all for participating. I had to get Luke to help me pick the winning entry.

The winner is Katrina!  I'll be in contact soon, Katrina.


  1. Okay so I have a story, funny and quite disgusting (which I'm assuming is bound to happen when sharing poo stories). One evening when Ronan was just over two and Finn had begun crawling - I was solo parenting and trying to get them both ready for the bath. I'd gotten them both nudie and began to run the bath. I came out of the bathroom and found Finn sitting in the hallway - he had something all over his mouth - I was so confused, was it vegemite? Was it chocolate? Where did he find food?!?! I looked around for Ronan and found him standing in front of the tv and down on the floor between his legs was a poo. Ronan had poo'd... Finn had found it, and tasted it!!! I almost vomited I was so horrified. Needless to say Finn got sick with Hand, Foot and Mouth and the rest is history and a funny story!!

  2. The funniest (and yuckiest) poo story I have would be when my daughter was having her bath. It was quite a bubbly bath and she was splashing about and having a grand old time!
    When it was time to take her out, I reached in to pull the plug out and instead, I felt what turned out to be poo, but I thought it was one of the bath toys, and pulled it out of the water. When I realised what it was, I screamed and dry-retched and it took me a few minutes to calm down and gain my composure! My daughter was oblivious and still giggling away.
    Aaah, the things we do for love!!

  3. I can laugh at this story now... my husband, Jude and I left the hospital when J was first born, high fiving the staff on the way out - our first outing as a new family. 2 things had to be done before heading home, grab some milk and a script needed to be filled from the chemist. Easy, right? So, we pulled up in the Woolies car park - my husband asked me where the script is - I don't have it? you don't have it? A phone call to the hospital confirmed that the script was still there, they would fill it at the hospital chemist....husband goes into supermarket to buy milk....Jude starts crying, ok - I'll feed him in the car, super mum! Feed done, husband returns with milk. Then a poo eruption, all up the back of Jude's onesie....so we had to completely strip J in the back of the station wagon and re dress with our fumbly still slow at doing at nappies and snaps fingers with a screaming baby....J goes back into the car seat (didn't love that!) and we go back to the hospital to pick up prescription and race home before anything else could go wrong! I don't think I left home for at least a week after that!

  4. Hehe, these have been so funny to read over! Good luck to the entrants!
