I asked my friend who works at Target in North Texas if they have started carrying BG's. She asked and told me no, just Gerber. I don't know if she inquired to the right people but thats the news here from N. Texas.

I haven't seen them at our target yet, but they are selling compostable 'sposies, baby legs, and of course, hot slings

I called 3 local Targets. None had the bg's just the Gerber. I want to buy 1 too just to check it out. I may call back later since I called on Mon. and maybe they hadn't gotten them yet.

This is a summary of what I read on diaperswappers:

Call the Target customer service number and ask them to give you a list of targets in your area (give a zip code) that sell either Bum Genius or reusable diapers. It might not be listed as bum genius, so ask for reusable diapers or Parent Inventors. If that does not work, you may have to ask for the specific DPCI number, which is possibly:

wetbag (found by searching for "wet bag"): 030 00 2235
reuseable diapers: 030 00 2126

Once they give you the list, take that number with you to the store, since that could be the only way they'll be able to find the diapers for you. If they're already out on the floor, look on the endcaps.

Happy hunting!

They're prices are the highest I've seen for individual or sets of 3 bumkins wraps

I like the idea of mainstreaming cloth diapering...

However, will this affect business for a lot of WAHM diaper online retailers???

I think it's great that they're selling CDs of any sort! When I first started CDing, no one around here was doing it. Now it's becoming way more mainstream. Sweet!

No sign of them at our Target. They were restocking an end cap with new stuff, but I read all the tags, no diapers they did have wetbags though

I've had some issues with Target in the past, but I would buy the BG cloth diapers from them.....it would be great if cloth diapers were in the store (other than those cheap pre-folds, of course).

One irritation I have is my local PX (I'm miliary). They sell the white gerber pre-folds, but not the plastic cover!!???They have those plastic pull on training pants, but that isn't really practical.They need the ones that you can form fit with velcro. Those plastic pants they sell are one size and are for an older child. Not meant for pre-folds in my opinion. I suppose I should make the suggestion....

thats neat. my brother just offered to buy me some nice CD's last night (i use prefolds and covers) and if we can just go to target and get them that would be cool.

I was leaning towards BG because of the adjustable size and stretchy tabs. Everyone says they are "not the best" though. Then what is?

I am so excited! I called the customer service # and used the code posted in the above post to help find the product. My Target DOES carry them!! WOW! I can't wait to go check it out later.

Like the PP I am wondering why everyone is saying it is not the best diaper. And if it is not, what is?

I have only tried BG 2.0, FB, Blueberry, and CPFs. I did order 2 GADs but they haven't arrived yet.

Bumgenius are awesome diapers. I think the reason people don't like them is because they are mass produced so they aren't made of the finest quality materials. The velcro wears out for a lot of people, the elastic goes out. I haven't had any problems! Nobody I personally know has had any problems. They are very dependable diapers for me that never leak, fit well, dry quickly, are reasonably priced and are easy to get.

I love that cotton babies has a 1 yr warranty on the Bum Genius. So if it does wear out before then they'll replace it no problems. I don't know though if cotton babies will warranty bum genius diapers ordered through other retailers?

I went to my Target to see if they carried them, but they don't. I have one BG and I don't really care for it, so I guess it is no big loss. My Target did have Baby Legs and Wet Bags though, bought a few of them.

My problem with bum genius is that the velcro is terrible... at least in the 2.0s that I have, the velcro is all coming apart. I've heard that it's just because they got a bad batch of velcro, though... and maybe if I just air-dried the covers it'd be better? My kids just take them off, though. I need snaps. I like swaddlebees for bigger kids (newborns pee too much for them ime), and I use a lot of fitteds these days...

That said, I'd totally buy a BG from target if ours has one. I've been meaning to check out the 3.0s anyway...

too bad those are your only option. the ones i buy at wal-mart work better than almost all of our other covers (and just as well as BSWW and Thirsties)! they're gerber but they're sized pull-on pants, not one-size. i haven't tried them with prefolds though; that might be tougher. i like them with Motherease and i'm sure i will use them with my other fitteds.
