I came across For the Monster online store while researching cloth diapers. First and for most the name stuck and was so cute! I was excited they agreed to be a sponsor in the upcoming giveaway!

For the Monster and Softbums Omni Review
As I mentioned above the For the Monster site literally has just about everything you need to get started cloth diapering or for any natural parenting need.
• Aden + Anais
• Hooter Hiders
• Healing Amber
• and so much more!
That is just to name a few items that popped out at me. That doesn't include the many different cloth diaper brands and other items as well. If your looking for a good site to get started or do some research for the best on the block, look no further than For the Monster!
I had the opportunity to review and test out the Softbums Omni One Size Pocket Diaper in the limited edition Cowies print. With so many optiona on the market these days, how can one really know what will work best for their baby? I wish I had found Softbums sooner or had an opportunity like this to try one out when I first started cloth diapering. The Softbums Omni is amazing and just like it's name, it is so soft!
The Softbums Omni is a one size diaper. But this one size fit is unique to all others. It has the patent pending Slide2Size for a super fit. Instead of having a snap down rise to fit different sized babies, you have leg elastics and a toggle adjustment. You choose the size that best fits your baby, not a set rise setting. It will fit all leg widths from 4" to 14". You can get a fit that truly fits a newborn with this diaper or that will fit a 25 pounder like Little Brother.
With the Slide2Size elastics you find the best fit for your baby and with this you will never get red elastic marks on your babies legs, EVER! And this is truly the case. The soft fleece lining and adjusting the fit to our liking, Little Brother has never had any pinch marks from this diaper.
Each Omni diaper comes with 2 Dry Touch Pods. One Large and one mini. The large is 4 layers of absorbent microfiber and topped with soft microfleece. The small are composed of 3 layers of microfiber terry and topped with a soft layer of microfleece. The small is perfect for newborn and small babies and then for use as a doubler as your child grows. I love their are no extra purchases with this diaper. You get everything you need in one package.
I also absolutely love that this diaper can be customized to fit your diaper style. You can snap in the pod and wear it over the fleece lining like an AI2, you can stuff it and use it as a pocket diaper or you can use it as a cover to a prefold, flat or fitted. So many options no matter your preference.
I personally like to snap in my pod and wear it over the fleece as a All In 2. This makes it easy to snap off and put in the diaper pail. I also like this diaper at nap time and stuff the small pod in the pocket while wearing the large pod over the fleece.
We have had zero leaks with this diaper and it is the softest diaper in our entire stash. Little Brother also loves to pick out the cow diaper and so do I because it is so darn cute!
The Softbums Omni is $24.95, one of the higher price range on cloth diapers. However I think once you try them and see the options they offer and the quality it will make up for the price tag.
We love our Softbums Omni and have enjoyed working with For the Monster as well!
