Organic Caboose Review and Giveaway

Today I want to tell you all a little bit about Organic Caboose.

Organic Caboose carries a few different organic products such as fitted diapers, wool covers, sleep sacks, and blankets.  There is many different things that you can find there that is all organic.  Organic items are great for your children because, well, they are organic and there is no processing or anything done to the fabrics that is used.  Here is what they have to say about themselves on their About Us page:

Company HistoryIn 2004, after the birth of her son, a young mother soon realized that the love she had for her son was too great to create a daily leave of absence from her home to the local hospital where she worked in the CCU.  
 She had a vision of creating an organic diapering line that would promote "the health of our future."  One problem arose, --she didn't know how to sew!  She enlisted the expertise of her mother and quickly they were off sewing side by side.  
As the business grew, she found more women interested in sewing the products from their homes.  So, she cut the fabrics and delivered the cut pieces to the local women.  Upon completion, the products were inspected for quality and shipped to eager new moms.
The product line has diversified upon customer requests through the years, and the Organic Caboose® line continues to grow and evolve.  Organic Caboose today upholds the legacy of the highest quality organic and eco-friendly products for baby and parents.  
All Organic Caboose products are manufactured in the U.S., creating employment for American families.  Organic Caboose believes in supporting each other locally.  "Supporting one another creates a domino effect that can resound around the world.  It's difficult to help others if we aren't well enough to help ourselves."

After reading this, I know that I was even more interested in Organic Caboose.  After contacting them to do a review and giveaway with Nicki, The Eval Gal, they decided to do a review and giveaway of an Organic Fleece Sleep Sack.

My first impression of this sleep sack was that it was SOOO soft!!!  I was so excited to try this on my son.  They sent me a size 6/9 month sleep sack.  When I opened it all they way I realized how large it was.  This would totally fit for a while with my son.  He is a bit smaller than normal babies, even though he is 8 months, you can see it he has a lot of room to grow in it, which is wonderful!  

Another thing that I loved about this is that the zipper actually zips down instead of up like all those other sleep sacks that you can get at WalMart and so on.  This keeps the zipper away from your babies face and doesn't actually scratch you baby up or anything like that.  

I also love that this keeps your babies arms uncovered.  Babies like to move around with their hands and always grabbing for everything.  When their hands are tied up, a lot of babies get upset which is why before this sleep sack I only used crocheted sleep sacks because those too can be arm free.  Definitely an awesome thing to have around the house!!!  Check it out!

Also, thanks to to Organic Caboose, you get a chance to WIN one too!!!!
