I saw on the Diaperswappers site that Target is carrying Bumgenius in the store (they are also selling Bumkins online)! I don't really need any, but I am going to buy a couple just to let Target know there is a demand. I would love to see cloth diapers go more mainstream ( I prefer to support WAHM's, but still I think Target selling Bumgenius is awesome). What do you mamas think?
I am going to check my local Target today.

see now there is going to be trouble with DH. having them at my fingertips rather than having to order them is going to be a bad bad thing.
practicing restraint is going to be very very hard.

Wow! I know ours only carry Gerber prefolds at the moment. Maybe I'll call and see if they will carry bG too.

A couple people have mentioned that when they went to Target to look, there weren't any BG on the shelves, but when they asked if someone would go look in the back they had them, just hadn't stocked them on the shelves yet.

Well, each year has it's hot diaper. Too bad Target is falling into the hot diaper pick of the year but I guess they have to go with demand.

I'll have to see if my store has any. They are probably doing testing.

Does anyone know if there is some "list" available that shows what Targets will carry them? We live near several Targets, and I would like to buy a few just to show there is an interest, but I don't want to drive around to every store around us.

Hmmm Bummer.
My Target doesn't carry them, the Target in Keizer doesn't carry them.
I hit two Targets in the Portland area, and no dice.

I saw them last time I was there and was surprised.

They look very pretty on the shelves and all but I generally don't like one sizes and wow, expensive. I haven't compared, how much do they usually cost? Cause they seemed expensive at the Target to me!

They're normally $17.95, with discounts if you buy 3, 6, or 12 at a time. Is that what they were at Target?

I called my Target and they said they didn't have them, but I'm tempted to check next time I'm in there anyway.

Now, why couldn't they carry bumgenius 4 months ago when my baby was born and everyone was giving me Target gift cards? : Still, I think it's very cool they are carrying them. We use alot of BG's but we like to keep a little variety too and will still be ordering other brands as well.

Like pp's have said, dh will kill me if I buy more diapers. And I go to Target all the time. This could be dangerous

I think its cool that such a mainstream store has bG's. It might not be the best cd out there, but a lot of people really like them. Maybe it'll get some people to try cd'ing, who otherwise wouldn't have. Then they might be prompted to research what else is out there. I think it really helps to be able to see something in person. I know I definitely would have started sooner if I could have touched and felt and seen in person before buying.
I will buy some if my Target has them. I think I'm going to call to find out.
I've never used anything other than pf's and nylon or wool covers. But if my Target gets bG's I'll try them if I can buy just 1 as opposed to a dozen.
