This thread is dangerous. I just ordered 2 AIOs from Dreamboat diapers. I couldn't help it, she has laminated PRR prints! Plus they're front aplix so DH can use them!

Oh-OH-OH I have a couple of these but they are my best kept secrets!!!!!<br><br>
Well, I will share because I have quite a few of their dipes--I just LOVE-LOVE-LOVE working with these mamas!!!!<br><br>
First of all--Dana of Hidden Pearl Creations....She makes really nice diapers and for those of you who cannot (or do not want to) spend alot on your diapers (most are under $10--I've picked some up in the $5. to $6. range!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> ) These diapers just cannot be beat!!!! <a href="http://www.hiddenpearlcreations.com" target="_blank">http://www.hiddenpearlcreations.com</a> Plus Dana has a full range of cloth products, awesome mama cloth, "shell wipes" (the tp alternative!) for the whole family and little ones for kids (BTW I understand these are a great boon to toilet training!!!), doublers, covers, wipes, nursing pads, AIOs.....and she adding more to her store all the time....she also sells herbals...and she is one of the sweetest WAHMs I ever bought from <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Second of all, Melissa of PoshPunkins...<a href="http://www.poshpunkins.com" target="_blank">http://www.poshpunkins.com</a> Melissa makes a full line of Cuddlebuns and she is so nice to work with.....<br><br>
Last but not least, Sandra of Cheeky Monkey, another absolute sweetie to work with and I LOVE her prints!!! (She is a print fabric addict!!!!) and she makes matching pull-on covers for most of her aplix style diapers. These are currently the only aplix diapers I collect. Also Sandra makes really nice diaper bags and will take custom orders.<br><a href="http://www.cheekymonkey.wahmart.com" target="_blank">http://www.cheekymonkey.wahmart.com</a><br><br>
So those are my current faves even though they are not really popular *yet*..... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;"><i>Originally posted by Lea</i><br><b>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.</b></td>
</tr></table></div>
I got my order today! That's just 5 short days from when I placed it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/yikes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="EEK!"> They are adorable. They're so natural looking. Warm, earthy colors and yummy natural fabrics. I'd post a pic, but my camera is chargining atm.<br><br>
dd wore the garden knit one without a cover (mainky because I washed all the wool today and Hello Kitty fleece just didn;t <i>feel</i> right with these <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> )and it did really well, even without washing the hemp soaker first. It was lined in organic, unbleached cotton. This isn't that really soft organic cotton, this is a little thicker and more texture to it. Still I really like this diaper.<br><br>
The all hemp was cute, fuzzy side out, with the cotton pastel serging and matching blue snaps. The ribbed goldfish knit is really attractive. Its lined in hemp fleece, fuzzy side out.<br><br>
Tabitha threw in 3 organic wipes, too.<br><br>
The sizing is similar to the large Bizzy B Hive fitteds. BBH says their large fit 20-30lbs, but I do not think these dipes would go much beyond 25lbs at the most. This diaper runs small in the rise, but the thighs were ok on dd on the 2nd snap (she's 14lbs and has chunky thighs)<br><br>
Overall I am pleased so far. My only worry is that the cotton sergining may not last as long as wooly nylon, but Tabitha doesn't use any synthetic materials aside from her snaps.

Here is another one--the new site is not up yet but she has some really nice batiks, celestial prints and 60's retro prints---<br><a href="http://www.sugarplumbaby.com" target="_blank">http://www.sugarplumbaby.com</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">

I had to order an orange PUL cover from <a href="http://www.sugarbums.com/" target="_blank">http://www.sugarbums.com/</a> yesterday (Saturday).<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> It's DD's favorite color, and the price was right! She had good reviews on wahmall, so I thought I'd give her a try.<br>
Heidi very promptly emailed me (like while I was still online looking/drooling over other diapers) to let me know it will be going out on Monday.<br><br>
And I forgot. I placed an order with <a href="http://www.flutterbyegarden.com/baby.htm" target="_blank">http://www.flutterbyegarden.com/baby.htm</a> a while back. She doesn't make diapers (I don't think?), but is a MDC regular. Still waiting for my cpfs to arrive, but Chris did email me about them and asked if I wanted them dropshipped from Green Earth.

I got that Sugarbums cover today! That was super FAST! (placed order on Saturday, package rec'd Weds) And the cover is fabulous! I've never seen a PUL cover with this much stretch. Looks like it will fit any shape baby, for a very long time.<br>
I LOVE IT!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Will definitely have to buy some more of these!

I took the challenge! I ordered a lilybottoms AIO with a burley knit terry soaker (haven't tried bkt yet either) this morning. She emailed me maybe 2 hours later to say it was being shipped today! Woohoo! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Will let you know how I like it when I get it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

The hemp dipes are here...they are looking good! Very well made, I think. The jeweled thread is really pretty. There are cute "United Colors" patches and size labels on the dipes, which I appreciate (since i have some diapers w/no identifying marks and i have no idea who made them!)<br><br>
These are sort of neat in that they should last for a range of sizes....the medium dipe snaps down into a small, and the large snaps down into a medium. You fold the diaper fron down and use the soaker snaps to snap the diaper down to a smaller size. Except on the large, there are 2 extra snaps so you can use it as a medium AND have the soaker in there.<br><br>
As if that made any sense. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
Anyway, I wish the soakers were fleece-topped and a bit thicker...I think they are just a layer of hemp fleece and a layer of I-don't-know-but-it's-hemp. Not sure that will contain supersoaker DD. The sewn-in soaker seems pretty substantial though. These are prewashed enough that I feel okay trying one without washing it first....which I am doing tomorrow. I will report back.<br><br>
PS. $ from these dipe sales helps support kids in Haiti....which is a good thing. And I got a card w/a "secret discount code" to use for my next order.

OK, I ordered a diper from someone I've never heard of. I don't even remember the name but as soon as it gets here I will know :LOL I never hear anything about them so I'm afraid they suck or something. Um, so if we don't like something are we allowed to say? It seems like stuff like that is off limits now <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> I dunno. Hopefully I like it so I can share.

I loved my lilybottoms. I took a chance and ordered d diaper months and months ago...an all velour diaper, so scrumtious! Finn has now out grown it and I listed it on ebay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
I think you'll be pleased with Lillybottoms <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I'm pretty satisfied with the diapers I have, but I've been getting into wool so I've been trying different covers to see what works best for us.<br><br>
I recently got 2 wool covers from <a href="http://www.hunnybuns.com/" target="_blank">Hunny Buns</a> and so far I really like them. I think she's been mentioned on the board before, but I didn't see her in this thread. I got one pull up style and one side snap. Her turnaround time was as promised (about 2 weeks), communication was good, and her prices are awesome both for wool and PUL covers, especially considering she makes them custom to your baby's measurements. Both covers fit over my big ol' nighttime diapers and are dry in the morning. The pictures on her site show tags on the covers, but mine came with a nice embroidered "HunnyBuns" in script writing.<br><br>
I have another wool cover from<a href="http://www.monsterbabydiapers.com/home.htm" target="_blank">Monster Baby</a> . It's not my favorite cover, but it works well for the price and Priscilla was great to work with. I think it would probably be best suited for chunky thigh babies or over prefolds/trim diapers. She also makes diapers, hemp prefolds, AIOs and clothing.<br><br>
I also have a tester wool cover from Patchwork Pixie, which was mentioned earlier. The wool is gorgeous and so incredibly trim, soft and stretchy and it fits great over my diapers. She has a unique snap design that helps to eliminate wing droop.<br><br>
And I have a wool soaker tester on the way from The Cucumber Seed as well, looking forward to that!

It is a sickness, this buying of diapers!!<br><br>
I now have coming THREE fitteds from Aunt B's diapers (they are side/back aplix, which I am excited about!) and 2 AIOs and a fitted from Cloth Baby (ebay auction).<br><br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">And 4 quick-dry AIOs from Little Lambs because I couldn't help myself.</span><br><br>
I already know Little Lambs rocks...I'll let you know about the other two when they get here!<br><br>
the kindhearted women dipes are in the wash....I couldn't put them on DD w/o washing them even though the card I got said the fabric was washed several times already. So I will report back on those later too!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>

I also just won an auction from Clothbaby I really look forward to trying them out. I also have some diapers from Mylittlehaven who sells on ebay. I love them. They are fantastic hemp fitted diapers. Great size, fit, and absorbency for our heavy wetting DD.

Okay Heather, I did it, I ordered one of the $10 AIO's fron Snugglebugs. I figured for that price, might as well try them out! I order a Veggietales, with a lay in soaker in sherpa.
