besides ebay and orangestarfish, where can I get used cloth diapers inexpensively? I've started using cloth on my 7 month old, but don't have a lot and would like to add to them. Also, we are expecting another baby in August and having a nice supply would really help out! TIA for your help!

You need to meet those criteria to post, but not necessarily to buy. I believe you can send people a private message right away when you are new. Just click on the seller's user name in blue on the left side of the post to send them a pm.

Edit: oops--when I started at MDC you could view the TP when you were new but not post, but it looks like that has changed.

There are also a couple yahoogroups where people post. Mamabarter, BBB-swap, clothdiapertalk.

I have had very good luck with mamabarter. BBB-swap is great but I think you need a minimum # of posts on the www.babybargains.com messageboards to post/see messages. Clothdiapertalk is sometimes slow but I've had pretty good luck there as well.

Did anyone mention Mamaswapandshop? (or something like that).

On Wednesdays, the babycenter diapering board has a sell/swap thread.

Babycenter is being buggy for me right now, I'll post a link later.

Yep the TP rule changed on Mon I think that newbies can't even see TP now. It was a bummer because no way I can afford Cloth Diapers if I buy new. I have been since I found out about this rule change. I have enough post but have to wait for 60 days.

Thanks frogger for all those link, I had no idea there are so many other places to buy used dipe
