|Med is the best seller for diapers, it always is because it is the size most kids are in for the longest, so Med is a good size to start with.
I just wanted to politely disagree with this. I think generally it's large size diapers that children are in the longest. Smaller babies will probably be in mediums longer, sure, but mine who were born at 8-4, 8-8 and 10 lbs and grew fast
would have been (and were, my youngest two I CD) out of mediums before they were three months. Liam has been able to wear a large fitted from about 2 months till current date, he's 9-1/2 mos old
One of my bigger CDing mistakes was taking my 100$ startup money and spending it on medium sized fitteds - that hardly got much use, fun as it was plus it got nme hooked on the wahm world - but soon I was scrambling to scrape up money to get a dozen cpf's that would fit (and I still have those
Happily I saved them and was able to use them on the third baby, for a month or so :LOL
And buyer's experience wise, it's of course more econimical to pay money on diapers that will be used the longest - me and ten other mommas for example will be watching and bidding on the large auction.
Now, what I look for:
-front snap/side snap or aplix or pinnable?
materials used - fleece or Malden Mills fleece? Absorbant soaker or 3 layer hemp fleece soaker? Knit outter or PRR outter?
-AIO? Pocket Style? Fitted? Quick-dry?
-Are the legs ruffely? Is the elastic encased, or foldover, etc...
-Turned and topstitched? Serged?
-General construction of diaper
-Pictures speak a thousand words
-Pricing, BINs, exact shipping costs, is it too high or just right?
-Lots of two or more for fitteds are great, saves on shipping
