I guess I could just ask the seller, but I wanted a second opinion. Does the waist look small and does the center seam run to the right - or is it just me? I'm dead tired and I'm not sure if I'm just going

Uhh, the waist looks VERY small. All the other pics of CBs I've seen do not look that way. I can't see the seam on my screen.
turquoise's Avatar turquoise 09:27 PM 09-07-2003
You know the seam I'm talking about though right? The one that runs down the center of the crotch of the diaper holding the soaker and other innards in place. Kinda looks like it goes toward the Left leg of the diaper (right side of the picture).

The wings aren't even crossed over... could you get a finger in there if they were? Wow! I think the "ruffles" look really big too. I guess everyone makes them different.

That diaper looks really strange. :
AnitaAddict's Avatar AnitaAddict 09:59 PM 09-07-2003
Looking at it I can't decide if the waist is very tiny or the crotch is very bulky. I'm leaning toward both. All three of the dipes in her logo had that same tiny waist huge puffy crotch look though. :
Jenb's Avatar Jenb 10:05 PM 09-07-2003
Well...
As a recent purchasee of one of her dipes, I would say that the picture is indeed accurate.

If anyone has a child (human or alien) that this will fit, I will happily forward this to you.
blazfglori's Avatar blazfglori 10:33 PM 09-07-2003
Definitely strange-looking!
The waist is indeed quite small and the seam does run off to the side.

I would think that all Cuddlebuns would have a specific pattern to be used, right?

I think it is for babies who wear corsets.

:LOL That picture :LOL

I was going to say it had to just be a strange angle on the pic but then read Jenb's post...

You gotta explain the diaper in real life. Like how big is the waist?
mommy2boys's Avatar mommy2boys 11:07 PM 09-07-2003
I thought it was hard to get to be a certified cuddlebuns making mama? I don't know that just doesn't look like the normal quality.
DreamingMama's Avatar DreamingMama 11:08 PM 09-07-2003
then any of my cuddlebuns.

: What a strange looking diaper. It reminds me of a bottle.

If anyone receives a diaper, and not just CuddleBuns, that they are concerned about the quality, they should certainly let the WAHM know.

As for the "approval" process for CuddleWahms or any other BBY wahm for that matter, is this:
Approved means they have purchased the license and can legallyl make the product

Customer Approved means the WAHM has received a certian number of postitive feedbacks, showing a a track record of good business

Gold Approved, means another level of positive feedbacks has been acheived and a product has been sent to Susan of BBY for inspection and approval.

That diaper don't look right...

If someone can sell a diaper that looks like that, maybe I should re-consider being a re-seller and start selling y'all my very own dipes :LOL

And she so can NOT have a banner ad on her e-bay listing. She better watch out for getting booted off e-bay if she keeps doing that.
willowsmama's Avatar willowsmama 01:24 AM 09-08-2003
WHOA! That is by far the worst lookinh diaper I have ever seen!
I'm not trying to be cruel and ruin someone's biz but no way can that be up to CB standards!

My dd is 17 lbs, 28 inches and almost 15mos. old. Tha waist would NOT fit her(even with a corset!) and if, by some miracle, it did she wouldn't be able to walk due to the crotch.

Don't CB's have a screening process? I wouldn't think this person could stick their name on this product.
sspmhm's Avatar sspmhm 01:40 AM 09-08-2003
You know, it kind of looks like maybe she used the pattern for seged diapers and instead of serging it, turned and topstitched it. I haven't seen a cuddlebuns pattern before, but serging or t&t would not be the same pattern because you lose fabric t&t. Maybe that's what happened?

nope.. see carla's post above... anyone and their mother can buy a license and sell whatever they want, LOL... no diaper is inspected until you "apply" for gold status.. even gold status is only based on appearances .
Jenb's Avatar Jenb 01:44 AM 09-08-2003
I will take pictures if you like on my 9 month old...
It is on the last snaps, the wings are extremely short and disporportionate. The legs are as shown, extremely ummm large...and the rise comes to midchest.
It is also very "chunky" in the soaker region.

This was my one and only Cuddlebun ( I have about 30) purchase that was completely off pattern.

Good idea about Emailing Cuddlebuns.
famousmockngbrd's Avatar famousmockngbrd 01:55 AM 09-08-2003
Have you guys clicked on the link to her home page? They are a lot cheaper than most CBs.
EmmaJean's Avatar EmmaJean 02:01 AM 09-08-2003
My son is super skinny, and that pattern would never fit him! So sorry Jenb that you had to waste your money on that.

I just wonder what she's thinking with that pattern? Does it fit her kids or does she just think it's cute that way?

Actually emailing Susan (who owns CuddleBuns) really wont do any good.. she doesnt guarantee quality in anyway.... my best suggestion would be to email the WAHM herself and politely let her know that you have some other Cuddlebuns and that hers are different and in what ways. As a former CuddleWAHM i would rather hear it from my customer than it get around to me or find it on a forum More than likely she doesnt realize she is doing something wrong and if know one said anything..... she would never know and people would keep buying them and being unhappy with them.. kwim? I am always appreciative of feedback whether it be positive or constructive criticism!

where? The only ones i saw cheaper were the bargin bins.. which are probably seconds But all other diapers were at or above MSRP ... but they dont include doublers.

T I was just reading the guest book on her website and this guy Howard Smith signed it. What is with this guy? I have seen him in other diapering website guest books and he gives me the creeps.

I agree. Or maybe the front and back are switched?
canadiyank's Avatar canadiyank 04:35 AM 09-08-2003
I agree that there's something odd going on - also appears she doesn't own a double needle to make the lines perfectly parallel. It's too bad, b/c she has some REALLY cute prints and is obviously trying to make a go of it. Being a small-business owner myself I can respect that. Has someone emailed her? I'd hate to see her go out of business b/c we were all too chicken to email...

I think i can answer that one. He is loading guestbooks so Google and other search engines will find links to his site on other peoples web pages. It increases his relevancy in search listings. By relevancy I mean what the search engine thinks is relevant... :

ETA: Or he could just be their goofy friend
