Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway Hop (Sponsor Highlight): Gnome’s Naturals

The third sponsor for our Summer Cloth Diaper Giveaway package that I get to share with you is Gnome’s Naturals. Be sure to read our other sponsor highlights here and here.

Gnome’s Natural’s is run by Lori, one of the first mommas and bloggers that we connected with when we started Sisters ‘N Cloth. She was a regular at the weekly #clothdiapers chat, at the various Twitter parties that came along, and a participant in the weekly breastfeeding blog hop we link up with each week. I mention all that to say that this is a momma who knows her stuff! Here is what she has to say about starting Gnome’s Naturals:

As a mom of a toddler, I am always searching for great natural products for myself and my son. When I find products that I love, I stick with them. I created Gnome’s Naturals to share those products with you.

In addition to some well known brands that I love, I will also stock work at home mom (WAHM) made items in my store. Make sure you check out the WAHM Spotlight section for products that are handmade by moms in North America. I’m a huge proponent of moms supporting moms and I hope that by retailing some mom-made items, I can help support them financially as well.

When you shop at Gnome’s Naturals, you know that you are getting products that have been tested out by another fluff loving momma, and if you have any issues, you have the benefit of Lori’s experience to help you troubleshoot! Gnome’s Naturals doesn’t just carry a wide variety of cloth diapers and accessories. You’ll also find several styles of baby carriers, breastfeeding products, Baltic amber, and more!

Be sure to keep up to date with Gnome’s Naturals by following them on Twitter and liking them on Facebook. You can also keep up with Lori as The Gnome’s Mom on Facebook and her blog.

Lori is offering our readers free shipping through August 1st with the code SISTERS, so now is a great time to check out all that Gnome’s Naturals has to offer! If you click through the button at the top of this post, you will be supporting Sisters ‘N Cloth, too.

Gnome’s Naturals has generously donated a Ones&Twos diaper to our package, in the winner’s choice of color! I LOVE this diaper, which is really saying something since I am typically a snap girl all the way. I received a green diaper to review, and the color is so bright and adorable!

Nehemiah was excited about his new fluff!

 

Ones&Twos is a super easy to use one-size diaper. They can be used as an all-in-one, as they feature a sewn-in soaker pad. But they can also be used as all all-in-two or pocket, as they come with an additional soaker pad that can be stuffed into the pocket, or laid in the diaper and tucked under the front flap. The soaker pad features the same soft, stay-dry lining as the diaper itself, so either way your baby stays dry!

The pictures below show the additional soaker pad laid in the diaper, which was my preferred way to use it. I think that if I were leaving the diaper with someone unfamiliar with cloth, I would stuff the pocket instead. You can see the pocket opening in the far right picture.

Another feature of the Ones&Twos that I really like is that the laundry tabs are not aplix (shown in the 3rd picture), so I don’t worry about them rubbing against Nehemiah’s skin.

The fit is wonderful on Nehemiah. It’s trim, but still very absorbent, and we haven’t had any issues with red marks. One of the major reasons I like this diaper over other aplix diapers I’ve tried is that the top doesn’t roll in on him, which means that we don’t have aplix rubbing against his tummy.

I think the only thing I would like to see changed about this diaper is the option to choose snap closures for those who really prefer them. Still, I’m a snaps girl to the core, and this diaper is a favorite!

You can order a Ones&Twos from Gnome’s Naturals for $16.95, and don’t forget to use the code SISTERS for free shipping! You can also come back tomorrow to enter to win our package, featuring a Ones&Twos in your choice of color, along with several other fun things!

 

I received a Ones&Twos diaper in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation.

Gnomes Naturals Twitter Party!

So, no giveaway this week. But we do have a pretty big announcement for Sisters ‘N Cloth!

One of the many blessings in this blogging adventure has been to meet people from all over the United States (and sometimes the world). And one of those people is Lori from The Gnomes Mom. And Lori is opening up an online cloth diaper and natural products store, Gnomes Naturals. (Go ahead and click the link. You know you want to!)

Gnomes Naturals will officially open its doors after the Grand Opening on April 2. That Grand Opening? It’s a Twitter party!! It will be on a Monday night after the weekly hour-long #clothdiapers chat, hosted by Cotton Babies at 8 PM CST.

Why is this a big announcement for Sisters ‘N Cloth? We will be co-hosting the party with The Gnomes Mom and The Slacker Mom!! You definitely don’t want to miss out on the great prizes! It’s also a great time to get your cloth diapering questions answered by tons of cloth diapering veterans as well as meet more cloth-loving mamas. And of course it’s a great time to hang out with us for a bit!

You can RSVP for the Twitter party here (and, yes, you’ll want to RSVP! Prizes, people!!) We hope to see you there!

If you’re unfamiliar with Twitter parties, check out these great pots on using TweetChat and TweetGrid for Twitter parties. I usually prefer TweetChat for the weekly #clothdiapers chat and TweetGrid for any parties, but the important thing is to find what works for you!
