Wanna Trade?

>Something common is people trading.

People can trade their good condition diapers for a larger size, or another brand that worked better.  Sometimes people trade new items they bought that didn’t work out for them.

Sometimes it actually reminds me more of bartering.  For example, someone who makes diaper detergent might send some to a mom who makes stuffed animals, in exchange for a handmade gift for her child.

Unfortunately I can’t think of anything to offer up right now, but it sounds like the perfect solution for me.  I need so many things like pail liners, wet bags etc.  I’m not picky about what they are or what they look like as long as they work for me.

I’m trying to only spend our money on the most important things that just can’t wait, and of course, that is diapers right now!

Like anything though, trade at your own risk & make sure to check out the person’s reputation and trading history, ask detailed questions and for detailed photos of the items and make sure all parties understand all terms of the trade!

Free For Shipping!

>More beautiful words were never typed.

Lots of the moms in my cd groups make an sell dipes.  When they are tweaking or trying something new, they often look for people to test the diapers.  Usually they will charge the tester only for the materials & shipping, leading to a very inexpensive diaper and an excellent deal for the tester.

I’ve also discovered hyenacart, which is a site similar to etsy, where women (and men too I guess) can sell their handmade goods.

Some diaper companies have offered their tester diapers “FFS” or free for shipping.  The diaper is free, you just pay a reasonable shipping charge.  Other sellers offer items in this manner to promote their store & products.

Helloooooo new addiction (stalking for FFS) LOL.

My goal is to find the type/brand I really like of course, but I am really anxious to have enough diapers to CD full time, and some free for shipping diapers would sure make that possible faster!

Eventually I’d love to have enough to have a day’s worth washing/drying and another day’s worth ready to use.  Ideally I’d also have a few extras so I could keep some upstairs & some downstairs, have a few extra for those poops-in-it-as-soon-as-I-put-it-on days, or even to not have to wash every day!  But now I’m just dreaming!

There are worse addictions, right? Right?

>Ok, maybe I have an addictive personailty.  I obsess over things and totally immerse myself in things I am interested in, turning everything into a project.  But holy crap are cloth diapers ever addictive!!

Cute prints, soft fabrics…I joined a group for sewing diapers, but I’m afraid to start, lest I get addicted to that too!

People make “baby legs” which are essentially leg warmers for babies.  At first I thought it was strange, but now I totally get it.  They put their baby in just a diaper & tshirt for comfort, easy diaper changes & to see that cute cloth booty.  But legs can get cold, knees need padding and *squee* you can coordinate the legs to the diaper!!

Must resist urge to coordinate clothing with diapers.
