I am also wondering this. I would also like to know HONESTLY..........are these prices too good to be true??? I think I would order a ton of these if I could know that the quality was as good as the price.

Well I'm definitely ordering as soon as I hear back from her on sizing so I'll let you know if a week or so. They look so nice I can't wait to try them.

Janessa, Heidi will answer your questions, I'm sure. She got back to me within just a couple of hours of my email. I wish I could help more, but I haven't measured Ty recently.

I've got my first one on order, but a good friend of mine (allformyboys here) has some of her sherpa and hemp diapers and just RAVES about them. And I know her ds is a pretty heavy wetter, too.

Heidi's shipping is very reasonable, too, so it won't break the bank to just order one or two to try out and then place a larger order later when you decide if you really like them.

thanks. I had found her site a few days ago and then lost it so I was so glad to see you link it for me earlier. I can't wait to try them.

I have a PUL side snap cover from Heidi. size large fits my 22lb toddler in the tightest snap settings, but has lots and lots of stretch. Seems like it would fit just about any shape baby! If I needed more covers, I'd definitely get them from SugarBums!

Update: I got an e-mail and apparently her dd is the same size as mine how convenient!!!! So she said to go with the mediums since Shiah's older and not going to grow as much.
hope that helps anyone else drooling over these diapers

Holy cow, it's here already! I ordered it on the 8th - a medium but with special snap placement, so I know it's not just a stock diaper. She made it and sent it on the 9th and it arrived today! WOW!

And it's already diapering my little darling's bum. It fits PERFECT! He's only on the 2nd snaps, so there's plenty of growing room, too. Lucky for me, this is his heavy wetting time of day, so I'll come back and edit this post after I get an idea of how it holds. Keep in mind that I couldn't even wait to wash it, so it'll probably do better next time.

As of right now, I couldn't be more pleased.

Lisa

edited to add: I posted under another thread, but the diaper performed magnificently during his heaviest wetting time of day; I couldn't be more pleased. I'm sure it would even be a great nightime dipe with an extra doubler. I've already placed another order with her for another dipe and a wool cover.

I got my SB this afternoon too! I also ordered it on the 9th so that was pretty amazing! I guess I am used to the typical WAHM turnaround of 2-3 weeks, but how lovely not to have to wait! (Yes, I'm impatient! LOL!) Now I *do* have to wait though--my baby isn't here to try it out on yet! LOL! I am very impressed by the CS though and the dipe (hemp fitted) looks perfect!

I bought a couple for my friend - an all organic one and a hemp print one. They are too cute! Don't know their performance, since they're for my friend, but they do look great, very reasonably priced, and *very* quick turnaround! I've got another order with her right now.

Has anyone tried the wool cover? It looks great and is not very expensive at all, plus there are a ton of colors! Hmm, I just might need another cover!

I ordered from sugarbums last night and she is soooo nice. I was very confusing about what I wanted but she talked it out with me and we got it figured out. I ordered mediums with the snaps placed specially for large thighs. So my experience so far has been wonderful.

Ummm, sorry. Ty's helping me type this morning.

Anyway - the purpose of this little note is to let you know how my sherpa Sugarbums performed overnight. I included a small trifolded hemp jersey soaker under the included doubler. Ty went to bed at 6:30 last night and got up at 6am this morning. The outer of the diaper was only *very slightly* damp to the touch. I think it's a resounding success!

Holy cow!?!? I ordered my package on Friday late afternoon, she mailed it Sat. and I got it yesterday (mon) Ugh I hate to say this but these are fabulous not a stitch out of place so incredibly soft. You have to try these diapers just don't try to many cause I want more lol I got 4 hemp diapers and 1 wool cover for 53 dollars what an incredible deal. I haven't had a chance to use them yet since they are in the wash so I'll update after Shiah gives them a work out

Just tried it on dd (she is 24lbs) I got a medium cover it fits her on the tightest snap setting and it fits her like a glove. Its two layers of wool but still very trim I think she could easily fit into jeans with this cover on. I would say it is as trim as her bumpy and Kangaroo Korner covers.
Janessa
edit to add that I got the side snap cover in a gorgeous kelly green

That's cool! My dd is about the same weight as your dd's. I may just have to buy some from sugarbums!
