I feel like I've been a bit absent again for a few days. There is a good reason. I was away at Creation where my daughter was learning to rock out with Christian bands like Switchfoot, David Crowder, Tenth Avenue North, and Skillet! I know, I'm away a lot! When this summer is over, we will have gone away a total of 6 times. That's what happens when your husband is both the youth pastor and the young adult pastor. Lots of retreats, conferences, and missions trips :-)
Anyway, while I was in and out of my house, I was able to get more things up in my shop AND I was able to join the Etsy Cloth Diaper Team! It's pretty sweet, actually! Check it out here.
Also, since I've been on Etsy, I've gotten a chance to really look around at what others are selling and man, guys, let me tell you, if you want to cloth diaper for less, there's nothing like buying it directly from the source! Some of these WAHMs sell their diapers for about the same as big brands like bumGenius and Fuzzi Bunz, but others sell them for half the price!
For instance, check out HippieMade. She sells newborn AIO diapers for $7. THat's pretty good for a diaper you might not get lots of use out of. I'm interested in her NB AIOs because I'm always trying to fill other people's stashes. Currently, a friend of mine is expecting and we're throwing her a baby shower and I've asked everyone to bring her a cloth diaper OR to give me the money and I'll buy them (since lots of people aren't comfortable shopping online). I look forward to buying some of HippieMade's diapers. They're so cute!
Then, there's Austin's Mom who has some of her pockets on sale for as low as $13!
Bum Joy sells her pocket diapers for around $14 apiece.
The thing about Etsy is, that if you're going there to find cloth diapers, you often come up with lots of things that may or may not be related to cloth diapers but aren't and you end up sorting through lots of other things to find only a few cloth diapers among thousands of burp cloths and bibs. If you want to find quality cloth diapers on Etsy, just search under this tag "etsyclothdiaper" and you will find everyone who is on the team! It's that easy!
Of course, while you're browsing Etsy, you can always check out Clothdiapermommy. I've heard she sells her T shirt fitted diapers for $7-$8 and she has awesome knit wool soakers ;-D
So, happy Etsy shopping guys! I know you won't be disappointed with what you find :-D
