Can you please recommend some affordable diapers for my friend who is starting her stash? Her are the specs:<br>
36 diapers<br>
One dozen each kind<br><br>
She is looking for:<br><br>
Pocket dipes<br>
AIOs<br>
Fitteds with Covers (Cover + fitted = one dipe in this equation)<br><br>
Here are her preferences:<br><br>
Snaps<br>
Side Snapping<br>
Cute! Not too boring<br><br>
(These are not deal breakers<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">)<br><br>
She is using service and wants to stop it asap. She's trying to get together an instant stash that she will be happy with.<br>
Thanks, all!<br>

Well for price, you can't beat Little Lambs. Extremely economical, side snapping, and cute.<br><br>
Is she opposed to getting package deals, like from any of the retailers? Babies in the sun, natural babies, etc?

So many choices, and everyone has their favorites.<br><br>
An instant stash might be difficult w/wahm products since so many are in limited supply.<br><br>
I like chumbas supertrim aio's a lot. There are a few instock now. Babysoftwraps are great but in short supply.<br><br>
FB are always a favorite of ours, and are readily available. Stuff size med. w/green stitching prefold for a light wetter. I like the hemp fleece stuffers at babynaturale.com. Hemparoo prefolds make great stuffers too, esp. night time.<br><br>
I have not tried butterflykisses, but she has some instock right now.<br><br>
My favorite fitteds are bodinks, but I don't think they are available now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Liz'sCloth has some prints and are side snapping.<br><br>
Covers - Rikkis fits over many types of fitteds, Bumpys too. Bummis siww comes in velcro and snaps. I don't have any wahm covers.<br><br>
There is always a variety of things on the TP.<br><br>
HTH a wee bit.

I love Apron Strings Baby Things! They are snaps, and soooo cute! Aldo, Ellas Diapers are very nice, however they are aplix. Fb work well for us, but I know other people don't think they fit as well. I know Ellas and FB can be ordered pretty easily, but AS is not taking orders right now.<br><br>

For fitteds she ought to try Sugarbums print diapers. They're hemp and a cute outter print for a great price. Heidi also sells covers of all sorts, she even sells AIOs too. I know there's a link up in the review section. Her prices are very affordable and her products are very absorbent and fit great. Her turn around time is usually less than a week for custom orders, at least when I ordered.

not a WAHM-made dipe, but <a href="http://www.tinytush.com/snug_to_fit_cloth_diapers.htm" target="_blank">Snug-To-Fit Supremes</a> are great one-size fitteds, especially for the price, and <a href="http://www.cottontailsdiapers.com/covers.html#DPO" target="_blank">Dappi nylon covers</a> are durable and affordable as well. To combat the unending whiteness of it all, both could be dyed in funky colors... i just tonight dyed two nylon covers in lovely shades of burgundy and green using kool-aid.

feebee- she has dappi covers (w/ babies r us label) in them right now. That's why she wants snaps- the aplix is chafing her ds. I had the same problem with my dappis. Anyway, she has sworn off all aplix at least in covers, b/c it's not worth getting any more that doesn't work for her, kwim? I am not afraid to try new aplix closures b/c I have some that are awesome- like my honey boysm but she is a new CDing mama and scared to get a bunch of something that will hurt her ds like the last time.<br><br>
I AM, however going to dye my old dappis now though!<br>
Thanks for the info, everyone- Liz, we are looking at some Liz's Cloth, I am going to email you for suggestions. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>

I second the Sugarbums and Liz's cloth. I also want to mention <a href="http://www.lucyshopechest.com" target="_blank">www.lucyshopechest.com</a> She has nice fitteds, aio's, covers, and a HUGE fabric selection for the cuteness factor. It is all custom order, and her turn around time is REALLY fast(ships in like 2 days after order is placed!)<br>
I have a chubby ds, and cannot stand aplix as well. I just started using the *SO SIMPLE* cover by Stacinator(all other stacinator covers leave red marks on ds's legs), and a *BEARBOTTOMS* fleece soaker which is thick yet trim imo.<br>
Got the bearbottoms at <a href="http://www.snuggleroo.com" target="_blank">www.snuggleroo.com</a> and the so simple at <a href="http://www.naturalebaby.com." target="_blank">www.naturalebaby.com.</a><br>
Wool soakers are awesome for chubby babies as well. An organic wool soaker from <a href="http://www.tinytush.com" target="_blank">www.tinytush.com</a> is my favorite for night. I also like my aristocrats.<br>

I love Lucy's Hope Chest also for fitteds, AIOs and fast turnaround time. (I am also a side snaps gal and that's what she sells.) I second (third?) the recommendation for Apron Strings for pocket diapering but she is not making anything right now. Maybe some can be found on the TP?<br><br>

Just got home and saw the replies... I need to clarify; I was referring to Dappi nylon pull-on pants, not a velcro or aplix wrap. The Dappi pull-ons are made of nylon taffeta and have no closures whatsoever as they simply pull-on.<br><br>
Sorry I wasn't more clear! I hate the Dappi velcro wraps too!

Liz's Cloth AIO's are great and come in cute prints- and as a bonus just add a doubler (fleece topped for us) and it's perfect for overnight.<br><br><br>
I also second the snug to fit supremes for a good economical fitted- not the cutest (they're white) or the most awesome, but they are good diapers and have lasted us a year so far (they are one size). I do add a doubler if I'm going out or don't want to change him after 1 1/2.<br><br>
Luke's Drawers also makes nice fitteds and AIO's- I just got some used and like them.<br><br>

As far as side-snapping covers go, I *love* my PUL covers from <a href="http://www.countrycuttins.com" target="_blank">www.countrycuttins.com</a><br><br>
They're cute, I don't have any wicking issues and they're super affordable. She also makes fleece covers, but I don't know if they're side-snapping.
