Okay, hear the music in your head ?<br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">(Adjusted for the diapering communities to 'bums' and 'doos.')</span><br><br>
Your objective.<br>
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.<br><br>
Keep the thread alive.<br><br>

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.<br><a href="http://www.phunkymama.com" target="_blank">www.phunkymama.com</a>

Can I start with the order I placed on saturday night?<br><br>
I ordered from Toot Sweet. <a href="http://www.omelay.com/Diapering/customdiaperstore.html" target="_blank">http://www.omelay.com/Diapering/customdiaperstore.html</a> This is one of our MDC regulars, Tabitha, who just opened her WAHM business.<br><br>
I placed an order for 3 custom diapers. 2 of the custom order print (Organic Goldfish Knit- Green and this one <a href="http://www.omelay.com/images/diapers/diaperswatches/garderknitsmall.jpg" target="_blank">garden knit</a>) and 1 custom hemp.<br><br>
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).<br><br>
But about Toot Suite ... I just got my Chinese silk sling today, and we all adore it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> 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. <a href="http://www.girlwomangoddess.com" target="_blank">www.girlwomangoddess.com</a> Her new website is really pretty! She has custom slots open.<br><br>
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..

Yes, puhlease leave links! This could just give another WAHM that 'edge' that she needs to get into our hearts! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb">

stepping in to update mission . . .<br><br>
further challenge . . . to find a non-aforementioned diaper WAHM from the expansive www to bring into the commune. I'll be doing my search this evening. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

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 <a href="http://" target="_blank">http://doodlebottoms.com/</a><br><br>
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).<br><br><span style="color:#FF0000;">*edited to fix link</span>

I remeber a while back people talked about BoDinks <a href="http:" target="_blank">www.bodinks.com,</a> 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).<br><br>
I know this doesn't totally fulfill the mission, I just wanted to cheat! LOL. OK, now off to find some unknown WAHM...<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hippie.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hippie">

I have two wool covers from Toot Sweet! They are gorgeous and have been keeping Meara's clothing dry for several days now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I'm really happy with my purchase there.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> 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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
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.<br><br>
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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> But once again, personal preference...I had a thing about that upside down llama, too <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
Tabitha also gifted me with two wonderfully huge wipes! I love them, very loopy, soft terry. Those WAHM gives such nice extras.<br><br>
Tabitha was very quick on the custom orders! I paid one day and got the notice the <i>next day</i> that my order had been shipped. Wow! I don't think that's ever happened before.<br><br>
I've had to email the Country Cuttin's lady because I hadn't heard anything and it's been over 2 weeks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"><br><br>
I would defintely order from Toot Sweet again <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

She doesn't seem to have any more instock, but I liked the Fire Engine print on one of her pages, so I thought "What the heck . . . I'd ask." So, I emailed to see if she did custom orders.<br><br>
We'll see <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"></b></td>

Toadies is now sold at SuperDupas <a href="http://superdupas.com/store/" target="_blank">http://superdupas.com/store/</a> 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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> 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 <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> 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..<br><br>
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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

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 <a href="http://thecucumberseed.com/" target="_blank">The Cucumber Seed</a> 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.<br><br>
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 <i>much</i> 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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
