I know I’ve talked about the *Attachment Parenting International online auction fund-raiser before, but here I go again. This time, with pictures! 😉
As I type this, 28% of the items on the auction (of over 200 total items) have yet to be bid on. Which means there’s a WHOLE lot of stuff to be had for well under retail value.
Now to further tempt you to click over and start bidding, I want to take a few minutes to show off some of the cute and cool items currently open for bidding.
First off, there are these two adorable dresses that my mom made…
These two “pillow case” dresses were made by my mom specifically for the auction. The citrus one is a size 2T and the flowered one is a 4T. Ava has three of these dresses made by grandma and she gets compliments on them wherever we go. They are adorable and are truly one-of-a-kind. Click the pics above to bid on them at the auction. My mom also made a couple of “taggies” toys/blankets (like this one) that are listed in the “Children” section.
And now I’d like to feature a few more items (as well as their generous donors) that I helped round up…
This super cute strawberry circle dress with matching shorts is a size 12-18 months and was donated by Baby Bonkin. It currently has no bids on it, and bidding starts at $7, so you could get this dress for well below retail value. Click on the picture to place your bid now. Baby Bonkin also has a few other cute clothing items open for bidding on the auction.
This adorable Signature Smock Set is size 12-18 month and beyond. The set includes matching handmade smock dress and drawstring pants made from modern fabric in a fun pink and floral print. It was donated by Urban Baby Runway, and is currently sitting at well below retail value. Click the picture to place a bid.
It’s not just cutesie little girl clothes though. These Rosie Toesies are beautiful handmade slippers (for women) and will keep you feeling cute & comfy all day long. Great for the spa or lounging around the house. Donated by BellaBella Designs. Bidding has yet to get started (and starts at only $11!) on these slippers, which would make a great gift. Click the picture to bid.
The all Organic Nesting pillow is a wonderful nursing pillow and is very comfortable for both Momma and baby. The pillow is also great for pregnant mamas to use to sleep with before baby is born. It was donated by Blessed Nest. This pillow retails for $84, and is currently sitting at only $35, so you could potentially get it for well below retail value! Click the picture to place a bid.
Elizabeth Pantley generously donated two signed copies of each of her “No-Cry…Solution” books. API is offering all 6 books in one set, and the other books each separately. Click the picture above to bid on all 6 signed books. I’m currently reading “The No-Cry Discipline Solution” myself and have found a lot of useful techniques in it.
In addition, there is a set of 11 signed books from the Dr. Sears library in the book category (as well as many other books) open for bidding.
There are 49 books and/or magazine subscriptions (!) available for bidding in the auction. Several are signed by the author.
And this one, Mama Knows Breast, donated by author Andi Silverman, too!
There are currently 25 items in the baby wearing category – slings, mei tais, Moby wraps, pouches and Ergos all included, and even some children’s size carriers. This beautiful espresso brown ring sling above was donated by Eesti Slings. Click the picture to bid on it.
This cute “imagine peace” onesie is size 6-12 months and was donated by Sassy Onesies. Click the picture to place your bid.
Four Peek-a-Boo B Nursing Covers were donated by Peek-a-boo B Covers. The cover allows you to nurse your baby discreetly anywhere, if you choose to nurse away from prying eyes. Made of baby-soft lightweight and breathable poly knit, mom and baby stay cool and comfy. Click the picture to place your bid. 4 different colors are listed on the auction.
Hand knit by Dawn, this beautiful newborn to 3mo hat and booties set is perfect for a baby girl. This set was made in very, very soft 100% pure wool, shades of pink and lavender yarn. The booties feature ties at the ankles to help keep them on wiggly feet. The hat features a picot edge and pretty eyelets. Click the picture to be the first to bid on this adorable set!
And now, just to help display how diverse the items in this auction are (it really isn’t all AP-related items), here are some other things open for bidding.
This is a twelve inch wheeled beginner bike with training wheels and was donated by Trail Kids. It is Royal Blue with hand print graphics to add color and style. It is recommended for children ages 2-4 and fits a 15-18″ inseam. Click the picture to place your bid.

In addition to all of the cool stuff above, there are also collectibles, health/beauty products, jewelry, cloth diapers, art, yoga sessions, a photography session, and much, much more.
