Okay, hear the music in your head ?
(Adjusted for the diapering communities to 'bums' and 'doos.')

Your objective.
Find a NEW or OLD non-popular diaper WAHM that you wish to 'try' out. Peruse their inventory/fabric/selection and report back once you find one. Take a leap . . . be it shallow or steep. Buy a diaper . . . and report back.

Keep the thread alive.

You must not as your computer will self-destruct in 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 seconds . . .







Are you still here?

Well I just ordered a Phunkymama wool cover last night. I don't know if she is unpopular or new but I have never heard of her until last week. I think links are needed here as well.

Can I start with the order I placed on saturday night?

I ordered from Toot Sweet. http://www.omelay.com/Diapering/customdiaperstore.html This is one of our MDC regulars, Tabitha, who just opened her WAHM business.

I placed an order for 3 custom diapers. 2 of the custom order print (Organic Goldfish Knit- Green and this one garden knit) and 1 custom hemp.

These dipes are already finished and currently on their way to me! I expect them tomorrow or saturday. I will report back! I am excited about these. Tabitha uses only natural fibers and organic materials.

I've got orders in with Phunkymama, GirlWomanGoddess and Freshies! right now. They're not exactly unknowns, but you don't hear much about them right now (except for all the woolie-heads who hit Phunkymama).

But about Toot Suite ... I just got my Chinese silk sling today, and we all adore it! DD demands to be carried in it now whenever she sees it or hears me say the words "sling," "back" or "sit." I'm going to have to try some of her fitteds, too, and indulge my weakness for Asian fitteds!

I also have a custom order in at GirlWomanGoddess. Tiffany(mama2kyla) is very sweet and can embroider almost anything. I can't wait to get it. www.girlwomangoddess.com Her new website is really pretty! She has custom slots open.

I guess I don't really know who isn't popular yet. For example, someone added Sugarpeas to their list. They are popular in my mind..

I was just hitting the "submit order" button moments before seeing this thread. I ordered a front aplix and a side aplix pocket dipe (both with gussets) from http://doodlebottoms.com/

The prices seemed very nice ($13.50 each for size medium), and while the fabric selection was not tremendous, it was certainly adequate. I'm excited to try a new, less-popular WAHM's wares! (and I will report back).

I remeber a while back people talked about BoDinks www.bodinks.com, but she has been totally offf the MDC radar screen for a while. I ordered some of her diapers a while back and they seem awesome (since I haven't actualy been able to use my diapers yet, I can't profess to know how well they will actually work LOL). (darn, I just checked and she is closed for orders).

I know this doesn't totally fulfill the mission, I just wanted to cheat! LOL. OK, now off to find some unknown WAHM...

I have two wool covers from Toot Sweet! They are gorgeous and have been keeping Meara's clothing dry for several days now. I'm really happy with my purchase there.

I would say the sizes run small though so order accordingly. I got the 15-25 pd covers and Meara is on the second snap at about 14 pounds.

Okay...two weeks ago I ordered a Country Cuttin's diaper in a Hello Kitty print. It should arrive any time now. I'll report back.

I also ordered a Toot Sweet diaper a few weeks back and Finn has worn it twice. Just a warning: THEY RUN SMALL!! I ordered a large since Finn is 20# (the large suggest up to 25#) It's on the last snap setting I'm not too happy with that. 5# is a lot for a baby...I expected her to fit in it on the first to middle snaps at least. I should have gone with the toddler which fits 22# up. She fits in a medium on pretty much every other WAHM dipe and I was comfortable ordering a large. I really wished I had sized up to the toddler

The high front is a bit odd...I'm not used to that. It bunches up under her belly. I would also like a longer soaker...the soaker snaps in and only goes half way up the diaper. I like the soaker to be the full length of the diaper. Just personal preference.

That said, this is a trim fit diaper; no puffy bum! Maybe it's that half soaker, but I like the way this diaper is cut on the bum. It's very similar to Fuz from the backside. Very absorbant diaper, Finn wore it without a cover today for over an hour before I felt any dampness. Sewing is first rate and of course (if you know me this will be a "well, of course" moment), I got the maroon Asian print and I love the fabric. I do wish the print were right side up on the front and upside down in the back instead of vice versa But once again, personal preference...I had a thing about that upside down llama, too :

Tabitha also gifted me with two wonderfully huge wipes! I love them, very loopy, soft terry. Those WAHM gives such nice extras.

Tabitha was very quick on the custom orders! I paid one day and got the notice the next day that my order had been shipped. Wow! I don't think that's ever happened before.

I've had to email the Country Cuttin's lady because I hadn't heard anything and it's been over 2 weeks

I would defintely order from Toot Sweet again

We'll see
Toadies is now sold at SuperDupas http://superdupas.com/store/ There's a Karen and a Julie ( I think) one does aplix only and the other does snap versions. I was going to place an custom order for the snap version, but the one who does those has been quite busy all of June and couldn't take any cutom orders I ordered one from the instock store (which is all messed up) apparently that dipe wasn;t really instock, but only appeared to be. Long story short I ended up with a diaper in an old fashioned airplane boyish print. Awesome diaper, I really like it, but I dislike the print I'd order more, but it doesn't look like there's much going on with the website lately and I have heard nothing from her yahoo list..

Now if you want aplix, that WAHM (I think she was the original Toadies WAHM) was more than happy to take my custom order. Good luck with those Heather. I can't wait to hear how you like them.

Dina is an absolute sweetheart. I have orered from her 3 times. I have a custom order with her atm. I just got an email sunday.. she is/was having a possible miscarriage and had a doc appointment monday. She said my order may be delayed a few days.. understandably. i really hope she is doing alright, but I haven't heard from her.

I just bought a tester slot on Sunday for wool knitted soakers at The Cucumber Seed thats the only "non-hyena" place I have ordered from lately. If my paypal stays in my paypal and not get itself all spent on ebay auctions for PUL tonight I think I will go shopping again to see if I can find any other newer wahms to buy from.

I'll report about my wool tester soaker in a few weeks.

The diapers are the same way. My ds is 12lb 8oz and the large fits much better! In fact, today when I tried to put the size small on it wouldn't fit, so we're only using our large now! We have the cool orange print and the green jawbreaker print.

Well..I got them before I left, they were so cute and the colors were great. One lime green with rrainbow serging. The other was natural with rainbow and then I got some Hemp fleece doublers. Is this person popular WAHM? I really don't know. I also tried darling diapers, which I cannot wait to get some more of. After trying and trying to get some SOS I reached out for that consolation diaper. I also have a whole box of snugabyes that I won off ebay that I plan on trying as soon as I return home. I am on the great search for the greatest AIO.

Hi heather!
I had fun today. I am so impressed with that snappi!

Ooooh! I wanna play!

I'm dying to try one of the Bearbums AIOs from ebay. I'm such a sucker for vibrant colors... However, she doesn't take Paypal and I don't even know what Bidpay is.

I saw this site earlier today (nice retro wovens and batiks):
http://nessasnappies.wahmweb.com/store/index.asp

I'm curious about this site below. I thought the only place you could get Mother-Ease was from Canada????

OK - this link will fail if too many of you try to hit it at once (only so many hits allowed per hour or something), so try to pace yourself ladies.

www.sugarbums.com

editted to show new link that you can click as much as you want!

Oooh oh oh I can contribute to the thread! Ok they aren't AIO's but I have 2 bearbum dipes from ebay! I haven't diapered a babe yet but the construction is nice and they are soft if that helps!

Bidpay is easy to use if you have a check card or credit card. All you're doing is buying a money order online and they charge you like 2$ (I think) to send it to the seller (or whomever you wanted to send to of course).

Aside from that I can't really play the game right now... I'm waiting to get a sum of $ that'd been due to me for awhile from the insurance co, and going to get another angelwrap and button up shirt with a little of that (flame print to match Dh's button up shirt, should be cutttte!), but don't have the funds to buy anything else at this moment...

But I am having fun drooling at everything!!
