Baby Food Coupon Discount Giveaway Natural and Organic Food Retailers Review

EcoMom Review, Giveaway and discount/coupon code CLOSED

I was given the opportunity to try some yummy, organic snacks from EcoMom.  They’re also sponsoring a giveaway and offering a 15% discount on my readers first purchase.  Enter code SBBL287 at checkout to get 15% off your first order.  (valid through 5/31/10)

Formerly Sprout baby, they’re now Eco-Friendly Baby Products – Eco Mom.
 
Eco-Mom sent me Revolution Foods Jammy Sammies in blueberry flavor and Plum Tots fiddlesticks in apple carrot flavor.
 
Someone wise recently told me that a company’s true customer service is measured by how they handle problems.  EcoMom and I got off to a rocky start when I was sent the wrong blogger’s package and caught them in the middle of their website redesign.  Jody at EcoMom responded to me immediately and was very apologetic for the mix-up.  I received my replacement package in the mail just a few days later.  (EcoMom sent me the blueberry flavor, the others pictured are flavors I purchased myself.)
 

The Jammy Sammies come in lots of different flavors.  We had actually just discovered them a few weeks earlier at our local organic market.

My daughter loves them and I think they’re pretty tasty too, I ate an Apple Sammy as I was typing this!
 

I had never had anything from Plum Organics, the Fiddlesticks were the first.

They look like little breadsticks, but they are softer.  I tried one and they weren’t bad.
 

They make great Cheerio picker-uppers.
 

My son really enjoyed it.  🙂
 

My son is 11 months old, but I don’t think he’s quite ready for these yet.  He likes to shovel things in his mouth, and he was breaking pieces off that were a bit big for him to handle.  My daughter ended up eating the whole rest of the box the same day!

EcoMom sells tons of other organic baby food and snacks, but they sell a whole lot more too.  They have a few cloth diapers, they have bath & body products, toys and books, even green cleaning products.
 
One thing that makes EcoMom unique is their EcoPass.  A one-year membership costs $99 and gets you 15% off everything they sell and free shipping on every order.  That includes expensive and oversized items like the Boon Flair Pedestal High Chair and organic crib sets.
 
The 15% off would pay for the membership if you spent $660 over the course of your 1-year membership.  That’s $55 per month, which is not hard to spend! 
 
It’s definitely a good idea to check their prices on any items you may be interested in.  Their price on the Sammies is higher than my local store, but I’m blessed to have a store with such low prices.  However, my store only has three flavors while EcoMom has a lot more.
 
I didn’t price compare anything else, since I’m not really in the market for anything right now.  As a savvy shopper though, I’d always recommend doing that, since $100 less a 15% discount one place is the same $85 elsewhere.  Just make sure you are including shipping charges and sales tax when you do so!
 
EcoMom is offering a 15% discount to my readers.  It’s good through May 31st, 2010 and is good only on your first order.  Just enter code SBBL287 at checkout.
 
You can also sign up for EcoMom’s Newsletter if you want to know about new products and events.
 

EcoMom is also giving one lucky winner $20 worth of Plum and / or Revolution Foods!

All In One Diapers Coupon Retailers Review Sized Diapers

Bumgenius AIO

>

I received this BumGenius All-in-one diaper free with my BumGenius coupon and flip purchase from Abby’s Lane.
The size medium I chose fits from 15-22 pounds.  My little guy is about 16.5 lbs as of the day I took this photo.
It fits him wonderfully with plenty of room to grow.
These are a lot like the BG 3.0 O/S diapers.  They have a stay dry inner.
A stuffable pocket to add additional inserts.
They have the same waterproof outer with front PUL “stopper,” the “poop scoop,” aplix closures, rear elastic…all the same great features except it has a sewn in microfiber soaker.
This is a photo of the diaper turned inside out, which helps it dry a bit faster.
These diapers are sized, with the XS fitting from 6-12 pounds (no stuffable pocket on this one), S fitting 8-16 lbs, M fitting 15-22 lbs and L 22-30 lbs.  This makes them even trimmer than the one sized diapers, and they are just as leak proof.
They are priced at $15.95 each, which is $2.00 less than a Bumgenius 3.0 one-size pocket diaper.  If money were no object, I would gladly exclusively use these.  Since money IS an object for us, (a very scarce one at that) I would prefer the one size diapers.
Aside from the cost issue, they would experience the same velcro wear over time (the organic AIOs come with snaps but not these, with the stay-dry inner).  You’d also be unable to separately treat the microfiber insert if it needed some extra stink treatment, which would limit your options (bleach and other treatments can damage PUL).  One person told me she actually removed the soaker from the diaper, which would “save” it, but then it would be a pocket diaper!
The XS/newborn size diapers are priced at $3.00 less.  I would definitely get a few of these to diaper a newborn! But for now, I’ll stick with my 3.0’s, though I’m so glad I got to try this!
Edit August 2010: I still like this diaper; it is very trim and absorbent.  However, it is getting a little stinky.  If I turn it inside out to dry and sniff the microfiber, it doesn’t smell clean.  I’ve had to re-wash it turned inside out several times.

All In Two Diapers Cloth Diapers Coupon Diaper Covers Hybrid Diapers One Size Diapers PUL Retailers

Flip Diaper Cover w/Stay Dry Insert

>

I had been wanting to try a Flip for a while.  When I found out Abby’s Lane was not only honoring the Bumgenius Coupon for a free AIO, but they actually had the coupons for me, I couldn’t resist. 

The only catch was that they asked a buyer to spend $25 on Bumgenius, Flip or Econobum products if you wanted Abby’s Lane to clip the coupon for you, rather than the $10 stated on the coupon.  Not a big deal since they weren’t charging for the coupon (other sites were charging for the magazine/coupon, then crediting you a bit if you didn’t want the magazine) and shipping is always free at Abby’s lane.  Basically, I got a lot more from them for just a couple bucks more than $10 in product, shipping and the coupon cost would have been from somewhere else.  For the record, no, I don’t work for Abby’s Lane, just love them!

Anyhoo, my order came at the speed of light at usual.

The packaging had a sticker saying to wash the cover separately 6 times.  I was a little confused, since I didn’t think this needed to be “prepped.”  I called cottonbabies and it turns out that they had some issues with the covers running.  So, I dutifully washed just the cover 6 times!  You do have to hang the cover to dry.

The Flip cover has an easy snap closure.

The inside is PUL, easy to wipe clean during changes.

The Flip has the same snap down rise that the Bumgenius 3.0 one size diapers have.

Same leg casings and outer too.

The insert is one size and has wonderful seams and markings to make the folding super easy.

They make inserts in organic cotton and disposable too.  The price per disposable insert seems similar to disposables, but instead of chemicals, fragrance and gel, they contain Non-woven bamboo viscose, Wood Pulp and SAP fillers, and starch based glue.  They would be a nice compromise for road trips and such, since you could really just wipe out the covers and even hand wash them if they really needed it.

I prefer a stay dry liner, so I chose the stay dry insert, which has 3 layers of microfiber, and has stay dry suede on the side that touches baby’s bottom.  Very soft.

There are no awkward snap attachments, the insert just slips inside.  The little envelope like thingie at each end helps hold it in place and keeps it from wicking onto clothing.

The snap closure was very easy, and this seemed as trim as the Bumgenius 3.0.

He fit wonderfully in the medium setting. 

We had no problems, no leaks.  This was great! 

I’d like to get one more cover and a few more inserts.  I think this would be excellent for being out and about.  One extra cover and a few extra inserts would take up a lot less space than several pocket diapers for sure!
