I have been a fairy for quite a few mammas who I have felt needed a pick me up, but after posting some stuff on the TP ffs, I realized that there are some among us who are truly in NEED of diapering supplies. I have a few things here that we aren't using (mostly really UGLY stuff I made re: wonky serging or misplaced snaps) and I would LOVE to give it to a mamma who would use them. I don't want to embarrass anyone, but if you are in NEED of some diapers, please PM me or feel free to post and I will see what I can do to help.
I don't have any $$ either, but I do have some dipes that are in great shape that just need another home!

If this needs to be moved, please feel free to move it! I just thought it might get more views here than in the TP because mammas with no $$ might not go to the TP. Thanks!

I am still building my stash and my baby is a supersoaker. If either of you have some doublers or fleece liners you don't need I am in need!

I have 4 covers, 24 cpf's and two fitteds coming in the mail. (todzwife I think I bought the clifford fitted from you)


There may be mamas more in need than myself, but if I am the neediest feel free to lend a dipe! lol (cheesy I know)

Thanks for thinking of those in need

I have a friend whos 5 wk old outgrew his newborn and is almost out of his small covers! She uses cpf's and one pocket. (I bought the cpf and covers and pocket for her baby shower) They are really using cloth to save money. He fits into my sons Med bumkins already. He is 11 lbs. She will use anything, covers, aio, pockets, fitteds, wool. Seconds, homemade and used are all fine. If needed I can help with shipping.

Thanks! This is such a great group of Moms!

That is a great idea. I have some dipes that would fit in that pantry nicely!

I feel the need.
:
Don't know if this counts as being really needy but I certainly feel the stress of needing MORE. I have 13 dipes right now. I live in an apartment complex and it's very expensive to wash every day and a half!!!
I do prefer AIO's (cheapy ones don't work for us...they leak) but am willing to try fitteds with covers again. I don't have a cover that works right now so I would definitely need those if i were to use fitteds again. (Lrg Lana's and Crats are too small for ds!!)

I'd also be happy with covers that I could use over disposables at night. Yes, I have to use disposables at times for two reasons...1) I just don't have enough dipes to cd full time, 2) Haven't found a dipe that can stand up to ds's massive overnight pees.

Ds wears an XL AIO. I have no idea what size he'd be in for fitteds. He's 27 lbs but is TALL and has very thick thighs.

So, if you think our need fits, we'd love some help!
Thank you, mama's!

I really want to try Cding but don't have the money to switch. I would love to get one or two dipes to try. I can't buy them and sposies and what if a particular one doesn't work for us. I have a 17 month old girl who weighs 22 lbs.. My preschooler (also a girl) is 28 lbs and still wears a dipe at night. I put them both in size 4 sposies. I'm also expecting in Sept., but if I can get an idea of what we like I'll use baby gifts to buy the little guy a stash.

I don't know if I qualify or not since I don't CD already. If something didn't work out I'd be happy to pass it on.

That's such a great idea! I'd love to help. I'm fairly new here, but I have references (Pam? Shandelle?
)

I'm trying to switch and don't really have the money. Even one dipe would be greatly appreciated. My ds is 19 lbs, pretty skinny legs. Doesn't gain weight very fast (not even a whole lb in 5 months)

I too feel a bit cheesy asking for help.
:

Right now I have a dozen prefolds & 2 (maybe 4! if TP works
) especially for baby covers for my one year old. I'm working on learning to sew, but its harder then I though.

right now I NEED x-large fitteds, covers, and/or aio's...he is about to outgrow everything we own...and i am not entirely sure how we are going to get the next size up. I've been trying to sell some of his baby clothes for funds...but so far no luck...however i hardly ever post over here so i wouldn't really expect anyone to give us anything. I think it is soo awsome how giving you mamas are over here. IT makes me smile watching you drool over stuff, fairy each other the thing they would love...what loving mamas you are

I haven't been here the TP required amount of time, but my SIL is in DIRE need! They're expecting their 3rd (under 4) any day now and I've been scouring Ebay for her, but stuff keeps going up and out of our monetary reach. My brother is a seasonal worker and is laid off through the winter, so they have to put back every extra penny during the summer months for that too. I'd be willing to pay for shipping....PM me! Thanks!

Hi mamas, This is such a sweet group of mamas. It would be great to organize this somehow.

I know that it helped me when a few mommas posted things FFS (free for shipping.) I got diapering supplies that I could use without financially burdening another momma.
