Diaper Review: sustainablebabyish | sloomb OBF fitted

My love for these diapers started recently as I was chatting with Mami about my (then) 2 month old heavy wetter.  She asked if I'd ever tried sustainablebabyish | sloomb products, and I said that I had not.  She had the snapless multi in stock, so I bought one of those along with a interlock wool cover.  I was in love... Then Mami told me about the organic bamboo fleece sized fitted.  She mentioned something about it being a "magic" diaper and said the word "overnight" - I had to know more about this diaper, because I was struggling for overnight solutions, and my baby was still close to being a newborn!!  So she sent one to try...

I was honestly a little confused about the name - organic bamboo fleece fitted (OBF fitted). When I heard "fleece" I was thinking of poly-fleece or polar fleece, and was also thinking "how can this be absorbent"?  The diaper is made of bamboo/cotton fleece, but the jersey side is facing out. The first thing that struck me after reveling in it's fluffiness was just that it was pure, simple, and beautiful. The OBF fitted comes with a snap-in soaker as well as an extra doubler, both made from deliciously soft material!  It's pictured here with the snap-in soaker folded back.

Little J was almost 14 pounds when Mami and I were talking about which size to go with. She was right at 50th % for height, and mid-60th % for weight. Mami suggested the size medium, and it was a perfect fit with plenty of room to go. According to sloomb's size charts, the medium fit her a little early.

This is a fitted diaper, so needs to be paired with a generous cover. I use the sloomb knit wool cover, but did not want to picture that here since the one I currently use is her 18 month old sister's, and it's a size too large.  I didn't want to post a photograph of the too-large cover which might give you a poor impression, but it's an absolutely unbeatable combination!  (More on this knit wool cover and lanolizing in another post!) I can relax when she's in this combo - mamas of heavy wetters know what it means to be able to say that I can relax! In fact, by the end of this mini-photo session, she had fallen asleep without a cover.  I had a wild idea in me to just put her in her crib without waking her to put on a cover, and the diaper was still dry to the touch on the outside when she woke up! Wow.

Trying to get an unimpeded shot, but she wants you to see her DBW booties, I guess!

And apparently she wanted you to see the back, since she kept rolling over...

Finally! Diaper testing is hard work...
I'd also like to share a little about the company. Mami shared with me that Erin from sloomb went out of her way to get these diapers to Mami so they could get one in my hands - talk about customer service! In the "ethos" section of their website, they explain what's behind the company, and it rocks!  Most of the products are also handmade in the USA (that's local!). As I mentioned, I have one of their knit wool covers, and the wool covers and longies come with a tag with seeds implanted in it that you can grow!  I LOVE this - it was a fun little project to do with our two oldest.  I don't have a green thumb as I tend to over- or under-water, but I do have a few sprouts!  Even if the seed tag doesn't work out, for every diaper purchased, sloomb ensures that a tree is planted!

If there's one thing I would change, it would be Nothing about this diaper, but that the new interlock knit colors would be available NOW!  Oh, but they're soooo worth the wait!

"Prima is Practicing" Giveaway

I have wanted some flannel and organic bamboo velour (OBV) cloth wipes since I have known they existed!  I can I ordered some fabric....actually LOADS of it!!  I found one of Mami's favorite prints (think DBW Paradise Garden) in flannel, and decided to make some wipes for her Alejandro. :) I knew the OBV could be a little tricky to work with while I was getting used to it, and planned to have some "seconds". Guess what - a lucky blog follower can cash in on a set of four of these cloth wipes!

I'm giving away a set of four cloth wipes that most WAHMS would consider "seconds".  They are totally luscious and functional, but might have some minor cosmetic issues since I'm not a professional :) The bamboo velour is organic, but the flannel is not, and the fabrics were pre-washed to help control shrinkage.

I will leave this giveway open through Sunday, and will choose the winner!  The only requirements to enter are:
1) Become a public follower of this blog and
2) Realize these are "seconds".
The winner can choose the "girlie" print on the left, or the "boyish" option on the right. Leave a comment below after you've become a follower (unless you already are!) with your choice of girlie or boyish and a way to contact you if you win!

Good luck!

MISSING: one wool dryer ball. Approximately 3 inches in height. Last seen Wednesday, October 6, 2010 with female - brown hair and eyes, 32 inches in height.  This female has arms and is dangerous when approached to retrieve said ball. Missing ball is considered to be in extreme danger, as female has been known to try to consume spherical objects. Use extreme caution.

I think we should talk Mami into a "toddler pack" option for dryer balls - it would have at least one more than you think you need in your dryer at any given time...what do you think?
