Sometimes treasures unbury themselves from the most unexpected of places. This treasure was unearthed in an inbox.
“Hi there. My boyfriend and I live on a sailboat and we’re expecting our first child in Mexico at the end of July. We’re both British but have clocked up nearly 11,000 miles on our boat since leaving the UK in October 2011.

Taking Amtrak was particularly enjoyable with our 2 month-old, Zeke. We discovered that the velcro on the outer cover of the gDiaper system stuck well to the carpeted train walls, aiding in drying damp diapers.
