"Newborns AND Cloth" Sloomb Sustainablebabyish review and $50 GC #GIVEAWAY {Open world wide}

I am totally in love with Sloomb (aka Sustainablebabyish)!
I have tried their organic fitted diapers and their wool covers (knit covers and longies) on both of my boys! You can read my review of the knit cover here, and my review of the organic fitted diaper and wool longies here!
I was super excited when Erin told me she was going to sponsor this event! I really wanted to see how Sloomb would fit on Ezra and how well it works for newborns!
Erin graciously sent my sister a pair of xs wool longies in 'squash' and a snapless multi fitted diaper for review!
This is what she received:
The order arrived at my sister's house when I had already flown home, so I was not able to try these out on Ezra myself... but that was okay with me because I can tell you first hand how awesome Sloomb products are and that they are VERY well made!
Another thing I can say about Sloomb is that Erin really values her customers and she goes above and beyond to help them get what they need want! Erin stands behind her products 100% and works very hard to keep the Sloomb brand untarnished!
The snapless diaper was a tad bit big on Ezra, but after all, he is a newborn baby. The snapless multi diapers are made to fit babies from 10-35 lbs! My sister told me that she had no problems getting it on him (though it was a bit big, and requires a pin or snappi).
Notice that the longies are a bit long, but the top could be folded down and the longies pulled up to remedy that!
These longies are so soft and cozy! Especially for the winter months!
Here is a bit more information about the snapless-multi fitted diaper (taken from Sloomb's website):

"The first multi-size cloth diaper from sustainablebabyish. heavy organic bamboo|cotton terry body with turned and topstitched leg elastic. includes two 3-layer organic bamboo fleece doublers for adjustable absorbency & one diaper pin. add more doublers for additional layers.

Pin or Snappi® friendly. Snappi® fasteners are now available under Accessories. Snapless-multi fitteds work very well with either option.

the sustainablebabyish snapless-multi is based on the pattern for our best selling bamboo fleece night time fitteds. slightly trimmer body & longer wings allow securing with one pin & fast diaper changes. the same fit you have come to love, now in a multi-size, snapless version, with adjustable absorbency & comfortable T&T leg casings. fold the front down for a shorter rise.

weight range approximately 10-35 lbs

This fitted cloth diaper requires a cover. pair with sustainablebabyish wool for a leak free combination."

The wool longies fit Ezra perfectly! Here is a bit more information about Sloomb longies (taken from Sloomb's website):

"soft, stretchy, durable, & ultra absorbent.

a year-round, day & night essential for cloth diapering.

sustainablebabyish longies are made from öko-tex certified wool yarns and are double-layer knit, making them breathable, soft, and comfortable–perfect for cloth diapered children from newborns to toddlers. sustainablebabyish knit wool longies work well with one-size diapers, prefolds, and all sustainablebabyish fitteds, flats, and snapless-multi diapers.

What makes Sloomb wool different?
•Sustainablebabyish knits are the softest machine knit wool in the industry
•All knits are double layer throughout for a natural, breathable, and bulletproof solution for year-round use
•Wool is an economical choice - only 3-4 wool covers are needed to successfully cloth diaper and generally need to be washed once every few weeks
•Longies keep little legs legs protected and are extremely durable for everyday use by active children
•Longies are used as both a diaper cover and pants, no extra cover is needed, making cloth diapering easy and convenient
•Beautiful and rich colors from environmentally friendly dyes and dyeing methods that meet the industry's highest standards, thereby ensuring the correct criteria for color stability, color fastness and the use of non-toxic additives
•Our commitment to using wool that is farmed practicing ecologically sustainable methods

•Our wool is spun and dyed in GOTS, Öko-Tex, and ISO 9001:2000 certified facilities that meet the highest standards of quality, environmental protection and cultural and social commitment
•Plantable hangtags = no waste packaging"

I really really love sloomb! I can tell you from experience that if you have a heavy wetter then using a fitted diaper and wool cover will keep him/her dry at night!
This is the only combination I could use on my 3 yo (when he was still in diapers, just before being potty trained) that would keep him dry at night!
Longies need to be lanolized before use... Sloomb has a great section on their website that goes into great detail explaining how to care for all Sloomb products!
