They have snaps on them. Only selling smalls and a few mediums. I know nothing about them, but they looked so soft and pretty

With smalls do you still do diaper changes at night? like for newborns? or would you just do 1 diaper?

Well, my son started sleeping through the night without pooping, which is when we stopped changing him during the night. He was still in smalls.

I think it's a good deal especially if new. They shrink a lot while they gain absorbency.

Re: Sloomb cloth diapers .... Questions

Why are some people not a fan of this company? I'm just getting in to this brand and am falling in love and wanting to try all of them!! The wool is so expensive but SO PRETTY!! I want I want I want! Lol. Well if anyone has any snapless mini's or any sized OBFs or wool for cheap let me know! That's my other prob, husband just lost his job and got a new lower paying job so now my diaper buying has got to get cut back

$18.00 is a stellar deal. I'd get a couple to try, maybe even a medium for down the road. I agree you probably don't need a whole set at that age. Especially if you are changing at every feed. When mine stopped pooping at night I stop changing. We went from smalls to large by seven months, but my three year old can still wear the larges also. That's when you need a few. They are great diapers.

Their customer service is beyond awful and all of the employees are mean. If you have criticism or a question about inconsistencies, you are wrong. The fb groups are "mean girl" clubs. They actually banned people from their pages that talk openly about issues with their products. Wool can be different from batch to batch, sizing is very inconsistent. The wool is of amazing quality though, gorgeous colors, but they are easily snagged and felted. I, personally will never, ever, use their products again due to their horrible communication and customer service.

Re: Sloomb cloth diapers .... Questions

Only nighttime solution that ever worked for us, is the OBF's and we use them every night for my one year old and my two year old! Definitely bullet proof paired with wool. I also have never had stink issues with them, everything comes clean! I LOVE THEM!!
