i see you can buy a one size fits all in bulk for a good price but they are from china. has anyone dealt with buying them overseas like this? i know it takes forever for then to arrive but i would hate to get ripped off. anyone have any comments or opinions? i want to buy some but i dont want to pay over 3 dollars a diaper and they can be used.

Hmm, I haven't--seems a little sketchy to me.  I've gotten some pretty good deals on my local Craigslist, though.


Have you seen the updated user agreement yet?

I would recommend doing some research on the brand before you buy them.  Some of the names are well-known and generally liked (Sunbaby, Kawaii) while the real no-name brands can be quite unpredictable.  I've heard of quality problems and very different sizing in the same batch of one-size diapers.

I recently bought two cloth diapers (aio) from ebay. They were from China, and were not any name brand. They came within a couple weeks and seem to be of good quality. They each came with one super soft micro fiber insert. I paid $5 each for them and even got to pick from a huge selection of cute prints. I think it's always important to check a sellers rating before buying. I was initially afraid I may end up with something of poor quality, but I was pleasently suprised. I may buy the bulk 10 pack of diapers off of ebay now.

Kawaii and Sunbaby diapers can be bought through SAHM distributors in the states. I was more comfortable with that, especially since I wanted to check the quality without waiting for weeks. I got some lightly used Sunbaby AIO's, and they're pretty good quality. I haven't tried Kawaii yet, but I've heard that they're pretty good quality as well.

I've bought from "china sellers" on eBay before and haven't been disappointed yet. I just make sure to take a glance at their feedback first. Make sure it's at least, say, 95% or higher. Good luck mama!

I have bought some diapers on ebay and I think you just have to spend some time looking at the seller's description and feedback. It is same for any other type of products. On ebay you can fund the best and the worst.

Some of the diapers you find there are great and some are low quality. I bought with Grape-apple or 97kgallery and their diapers are GREAT.

I have tried before another brand named b******d from another ebay seller and I have been quite disappointed.
