Loveybums Review/Giveaway!!!

As a devoted cloth diaper user, I felt like I’d tried just about every style and every brand out there, until I discovered the wonderful world of small, family owned and wahm-based diaper companies.  I first found Loveybums while looking for wool.  They are a family owned and operated business in Massachusetts, and all of their products are made in New England with eco-friendly fabrics produced in the US.  They make incredible wool wraps, that are exceptionally trim under clothing.  I decided to give the jersey and crepe covers a try, and I was not disappointed.  After receiving my first package, I quickly realized that the only thing that topped my love for Loveybums wool wraps was my love for their velour fitted diapers.  After trying multiple brands, these had everything I had been looking for!  I was so in love, in fact, that I volunteered to write the review based on my experience with the products I’ve previously purchased. 

[*Note: All photos are of my personal washed and worn Loveybums diaper, and unfortunately I was unable to fully capture the vibrant color, or the squishiness!]


The velour fitteds are constructed of the softest, squishiest organic velour, with hidden layers of organic interlock and fleece.  But don’t let the squish fool you – they are also one of the trimmest fitteds I own.  There is no sacrifice in absorbency though, as they are also crowned as my favorite in that department as well!  They are so beautifully made in vibrant, hand-dyed organic velour, and the fit is outstanding.  Three snaps on each side prevent wing droop, and the stretchy, well crafted elastic gussets offer the snuggest of fits.  My daughter is 33 inches and 27 lbs and still fits into her larges on the smallest settings (without using the crossover snap).  The rise fits her beautifully without any lower belly sagging.  My first ones have been in heavy use for four months and show little signs of wear.


There is a snap in soaker that generally stays completely attached in the wash, that goes right up to the edge of the gussets.  I particularly like this feature when it comes to poop.  As many of you may have experienced, some diapers have skinnier inserts where poop can get trapped beneath them, or in the case of multiple layer soakers - sandwiched throughout, and it can be difficult to track it all down if you use a diaper sprayer as I do.  These are by far the easiest fitteds I own to spray clean, and the stretchy gussets hold in the biggest of messes.  The simple one piece, hourglass-shaped soaker is fully absorbent and does the job in spades.   There are doublers available if you’re looking for more holding power.  In fact, I have found that a doubler paired with a fleece topped hemp doubler was all I needed to make my loveybums fitted last 12 hours through the night!

In all, my only tiniest of tiny desire for something more with these diapers would be a stay-dry option.  I fully understand the need for many mamas to keep their fibers natural, but some of us have little ones with tender, sensitive tushies, and I get awfully tired of dealing with skimpy stay-dry fleece liners.  In my fantasy dream world I wish there were a stay-dry option so I would have one less piece of diaper laundry to tangle with.

Overall, Loveybums offers many beautifully crafted products that are worth consideration.  Some are periodically offered at deep discounts to facebook fans, and with coupon offers as well as seconds and overstock sales, there are always great deals to be had.  But these products are worth every penny.  And certainly, one of the best aspects of the company is not only its commitment to selling products manufactured entirely in the US, but Pam of Loveybums has always given stellar customer service.  She promptly answered all of my questions prior to purchases and has been a pleasure to deal with.  I am always happy to give my business to amazing companies such as this. 

For your chance to win your very own Loveybums Velour Fitted in the gorgeous Aquamarine color with your choice of size make sure to leave a comment on the blog post with your choice of diaper size and tell us your favorite loveybums product!

My favorite are the organic wool covers. I need to order a couple of larges! She would probably get the most use out of a large diaper. Maybe medium, though.

nathaliemejias said... [Reply to comment]

OMG! Im new to CD so I could really benefit from this! A medium for sure:)Loooove wool covers!

heartnut said... [Reply to comment]

I have two Loveybums mediums--one is Sherpa, the other is Organic Cotton. I bought them used with my Wool Soakers, and use them for overnight for my 10 week old. They are WONDERFUL, and fit her so well.

I have heard they also have wool covers, and they look spectacular on their website. I have a friend that just ordered some for her 8 mo old baby.

Based on your review, I am going to keep my eye out for more Loveybums, and try to save up for purchasing more from them. I love Swaddlebees bc they are American-made, Loveybums needs to be added to that list. :o)

I love all of their products! Just received a few organic fitted diapers today and they are great! I also have a few of their wool covers. Hoping to acquire many more for the babe on the way ;) as we're expecting a new baby in June I'd be happy with any size!
