Well we went away for a week up to the mountians and we went to a laundry mat to wash Ryans diapers and when we came back they were gone... :cry It was a load of 13 medium happy heinys and the stuffers... Mostly solids but a few prints in there........... now i am out a ton of diapers......... Why would some one do that.............. I ask the lady who worked there and she said she didnt know what happened to them....... they were not left any where or thrown away or in a dryer they were just GONE...............I do not have the money to replace these diapers right now............. So some one stole 10 solid color happy heinys and 3 prints....... and all the happy heiny stuffers to go in them...........we were only gone 45 minutes........... GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrr : where is the :cop:

I had a young looking lady maybe in her early 20's ask me what they were when I was putting them in the wash and i am now wondering if was her........ I just said cloth diapers........I didnt explain them to her or tell her any thing about them.......... this is like taking a kids cloths.......... I am still just in shock.........First he stopped fitting in all his large diapers so i had to replace them with mediums and now i am out 13 dipes..... OMG.........

I agree that it must be someone that knew exactly what they were stealing. Maybe keep your eyes peeled for them in large lots on eBay?! I'm planning on using a laundromat when we take a vacation in a week or so and you can be sure I won't be leaving them there unattended after hearing your story!

My SO and I just had this conversation. We are moving to NYC where there is laundry is the building rather than in our apt. We debated being able to leave clothes and diapers and time it. Now I will leave my clothes--who cares if they steal em. But not my dipes. And of course I am saddened by the fact that I will have to sit and watch my dipes wash and dry now. SOme people are classless--they will steal anything. Does not matter if they need it. However it seems someone knew what they were stealing--it seems odd to steal dirty old diapers (not to you of course but to someone else).

I am SOOOO sorry. I have no HH but if there was something else you could use, maybe I could send you something. That stinks. That person's karma is RUINED

That is terrible! Did you leave your name/number with the laundromat just in case they turn up?

I'm so sorry...that is just an absolutely rotten thing to do! I can't believe they even knew what they were. I wonder if it was the girl you spoke to. Definitely watch eBay...

Noooooooo that's so wrong!
I've always been worried about that happening to my clothes. When I had to deal with laundromats I never left my laundry. I was always to scared of mean people stealing.

Pm me your addy too. I've got a few white med FBs that I don't really use. I've got a couple colors and lots of wonderoos, so the whites sit at the bottom of the pile.

Send me your addy and I'll send you 1 or 2 plus stuffers
