Well, I don't think I could ever find this out for sure, but if there were a way to know, it would certainly be important to me that the mom was respectful to her children. One of the reasons I like to support WAHM's is that I feel I'm helping moms take care of their kids. I agree with your take on not wanting to buy from a mom that was completely ignoring her babe.
There are a lot of quality products out there. There are lots of quality clothes - I try when possible to buy those made with fair labor practices. I'd try and do the same for my dipes.
