Does anybody NOT have a problem with Little Lambs? - Page 2

post #21 of 56
I hate to say it but yes, I've started having problems with wicking during naps, so now I don't even let him sleep in a LL at all. (Never tried solid, only print.)
post #22 of 56
I'm still somewhat of a "beginner" to CDing, but I'm also a fan of the "frugal stash". THat's what "lured" me to buy the LLs. I was able to purchase 4 OS AIO's on ebay for about $23 (included shipping). They are doing their job so far! We've never had a leak, but I've never tried them on an outing (where he would pee more than once in it.) They do fit a little weird and are a little "frilly" for my ds, but the way I look at it, if I can get average use out of these for both my toddler and baby on the way (w/o buying two sizes) and pay less than $6 a dipe, then I'm satisfied!!

I liked them ok, but I've found a lot of other diapers I like more.
Ditto - the print outer ones we had wicked EVERY single time and that was when Maxi was about 6 months old and not a super heavy wetter during the day (which is when we used them). But the non-print outers never did.

It seems so odd to me that there have been oh, 49 or so threads about this exact topic. Why start another one?

Because it is difficult and time-consuming searching through all of the old threads, and there are always old or even new members out there that have new valuable info to share. Truthfully, I have been stalking this board for months and it is to the point that every question I see is a complete repeat.

But luckily there are so many incredibly sweet, intelligent, goodlooking mamas out there who will patiently answer the same question time and time again. After all, there are no dumb questions. I have been a newbie on many boards and I did my share of asking those time-tested questions.

Newbies, ask away! I think these mamas love new members and absolutely love to help. Jmunch, I know you did not intend to sound , but I think when senior members make those off-handed comments it scares new members and they are afraid to ask questions. After all, you have surely seen 49 threads on every question out there.

I would have to agree with that. I know the search button is great but there are so many posts by now that if we all did that every time we had a question there would BE no more posts :LOL!!

But on another level I think it's important to keep critisism tactful, which I am happy to see in this thread it has remained that way. I hate to see bashing and that sort of thing of a WAHM product.

I think that this topic in particular is a well known entity. It is an inflamatory one, often brought up for the sake of argument itself. I completely disagree with the above and that is what the diapering reviews and the search button is there for. At least that's what it was for when I first came here. But then again, it's very different here now.

ITA w/the first part of this. LL has quite a lengthy history. I admit I want to scream every time I see a laundry thread b/c I think "Do a search!! This question has been asked 100 million times!" or any other topic that has been hashed over a ton, but what if people are innocently asking about something? If it's clear that a post was started just to open old wounds then that's not cool, but I don't think that was the intention of this thread.
post #29 of 56
I was just talking about innocently asking something, not for argumentative purposes, hwich I'm sure was not the intent.
post #30 of 56
I just wanted to add that I do agree people should use the serach button, BUT, I personally didn't even realize it was there for a while. We could politely direct people to do that, or make some kind of sticky announcement if it really bothers people that much. I am just wondering if people don't realize it's there which is why there are a million posts on laundry questions, why fussybutts costs so much, that sort of thing.

And I also do agree that any time you bring up a question critisizing a WAHM product it's kind of asking for flames. Even if it's not an MDC well known mama, it could still bother some. WHich is why the diapering reviews are there too.

What is PWG? :

I think I will try a thincker insert on my printed ones and see what happens.

The OP's title had a negative spin on it from the start. She is saying that she knows they wick for almost everyone. It's like asking to hear negative comments. And then, as usual on this exact thread, people with 3 posts pop up and say "oooohhhh, I just LOVE LL. My DC pees 17 quarts or liquid 12 times a day and he/she can wear a print AIO for 48 hours with NO WICKING". And then around and around we go. I know I sound super cynical, but I am just being honest. It seems to me that everytime this board has an influx of new members, there is the ole' push to have them buy some LL from someone who makes the aformentioned comment. I don't know, it is all just way too obvious to me.

Do you mean like no one likes them but people are trying to say good things about them so that newbies will buy them? I don't personally like to see threads asking for critisism of WAHM dipes either, but I just don't know about questioning the integrity of the post. It could have been for the wrong reason, but it also could have not been. I get really annoyed when I see posts that are just asking for it, but sometimes I think maybe they jsut don't know .

The true beauty of a forum like this one is that every member has the right to read (or ignore) any post they want. If you don't like the topic, simply ignore it. If you don't like a post because it is rude or a repeat, just don't read or respond to it. If the poster who started the new thread doesn't get a response they will figure it out.

If not for the questions and vents/raves of WAHMs why would this board be here? Maybe there needs to be a sticky that says "Warning all new members, please do a complete search and read all of the diaper reviews for if you post anything that the older members consider a repeat or seems to insult any WAHM (even if she has earned the right to be insulted by a bad product or horrible customer service) we will gripe about it. You ARE allowed to ask completely unique questions that we have never seen (such as, Do aliens in Mars use FBs or they prefer the look of Fussybutts, or How do you wash diapers in a top loader washer on the space shuttle) or post photos of your babies in cute diapers (but please, only one photo of each child, we don't want to see the same child in future photos, it must be a different child). Please tread carefully because the older members are very determined that you use the search button which is to the right of the screen. Not using this search button to the fullest will entitle you to being gently reprimanded, possibly losing your membership to the diapering forum, and even possible death. Enter with care for even though we say we are a friendly board and ARE 99% of the time, don't test us for we do get PMS some days!"

I think such sarcasm is really not needed. I am unsubscribing to this thread. WHat a shame we cannot all speak as adults!

ANd you are wrong about one thing. It is NOT ok to post vents/bashing of WAHM products. Whether or not you'd get a thread like that pulled I don't know, but I think that everyone will agree that WAHM bashing is NOT cool!!!
post #37 of 56
Actually, I was not being sarcastic but trying to be funny. Great, I will never make it in Vegas... I honestly did not mean to offend you 425lisamarie.

And I have seen valid threads with honest questions from nice mamas asking if other people have had a certain negative experience from a WAHM or a WAHM's product. I personally want to be warned if a WAHM does not deliver her product as intended or ignores emails from frantic customers. Just like Big Bad Business there are WAHMs out there that scam customers or provide subpar products for whatever reasons, and it is great when mamas report those scams. Isn't that allowed?

And before I buy a diaper I want to know whether people out there have used it and think it is a good. Every diaper is different with every baby, so it is not bashing any WAHM to say that "so and so diaper does not work for me for so and so reasons". I have read some real rants about WAHMs over on the diaperpin directory reviews and it has directed my business to honest good WAHMs that I want to keep in business.

And maybe you think we should just report the raves but not say anything about the rants with the theory that WAHMs Gone Bad won't have any advertising. But what happens when YOU find a WAHM site with some cute diapers and you honestly want to know if people have liked them but you can't find anything searching through this board? Do you want someone to tell you what they really think about the diaper? Or would you rather they say it is ok and you buy it and it stinks or you never get it.

WAHMs are people just like us and some are good and some are bad and it helps having open forums where people can discuss (like adults) pros and cons. Being a WAHM does not make you untouchable. To be a successful WAHM it is not enough to be a working Mom who needs to support her children. Hell, most of us are Moms who need to support our kids. A successful WAHM has to also be a good business woman with above average products to survive.

I buy all of my baby stuff from WAHMs and I have been fortunate to only have excellent experiences in both customer service and products. But that is because I have listened with an open ear to both rants and raves I have found on this site and other diapering sites. I would be clueless if not for the great women of these various boards and their collective wisdom and undying patience. I want to personally thank the mamas would will answer the "Which is better, CPF or IPF" question graciously time and time again. And maybe their answer will change with time so the question needed to be asked once more. Don't you ever find something you like better?

I really thought most members of this board embraced every honest question and really attempt to support the hard-working good WAHMs out there and help weed out WAHMs that should NOT be in business.

nak. I have used LL a couple of times. My latest experiences with them arre my ultra heavy wetting 8 week old. I have big babies so we skipped the nb alltogether. Her size chart says 10-18lbs for med, and I have found it pretty accurate so far. My son is probably 17lbs and they are getting small. Oh, I should add that I made a couple of banners and traded Jennifer for these about a year and a half ago. When I used LL with my oldest, the sizing on the larges was way off-- dunno if they still are or not.

As far as leaking/absorbency, we do need a good thick doubler with them. We have the hemp soaker, and IMO it just isnt thick enough. If I add a doubler he can wear them 2-3 hrs without leakage. I do like the prints, the price, and even the fit of the mediums. They are a good diaper bag diaper IMO. Just throw a nice thirsty doubler in with them!

I see nothing negative with the OP.

Different dipes work for different babies.....no biggie!!!
post #40 of 56
we used LL and loved them. had some wicking sometimes and othertimes not. never had wicking with the laminated pul ones, the solid color ones. i found when i had her in them i just had to be a little quicker at changing her and that was fine. they were nice and trim on her and worked great. loved all the cute prints and great prices.

i did use permanent water guard though, yikes. oh well, can't undo things, just have to live and learn. it did help them not to wick but yuck.

love the hemp soakers. i even passed some on to another local mama and she used them for awhile. i didn't have a super soaker though, so my experience might be influenced by that. i never used them as a night time dipe though. loved my happy heinys for that.
