What are on your babe's bums?? Do they mostly wear your creations or do you get stuff from all over?

Just curious
I have it in my head that your babes must have the best dressed bums around

He is sleeping/nursing in my lap right now wearing one of my own AIOs with no clothes. He looks cute indeed! LOL

But no he doesn't always wear my own. He wears mother-ease, Berry Patch (my fav.), pocket diapers like happy heinys, fuzzi bunz, wonderoos (my fav. pocket), ecobaby (not so great), Nanipoos, fern & faerie, aristocrats, and sometimes under the nile (terrible diaper in my opinion!).

And I wish I had more from different WAHMs!

The only diapers I make are contours for nb/infants so Maxi hasnt worn those in a while. But most of what I make is accessories so we only use our own. Since we use only pocket diapers for preschool we use only our own inserts. And of course doublers and liners and wool liners.

Mostly Maxi only uses other WAHM stuff now -- fun stuff!

I like to have a mix. Right now Em is in a Daisy Doodle (cause they really fit her nice!) I use my own too but I like having the mix. Also I don't have a snap press and side snap diapers are really working the best for us right now because she pulls the velcro off! LOL!

I wish I had more Berry Bottoms for dd, but I don't have time to make her dipes and make them for my biz. I use mostly all WAHM products though.

I have a lot of dipes.
Buckeye Bottoms, love them!
FLAGS, good fitting dipes.
Recyclebees, love these!
Freshies! dh's favorite
KHW, not bad for front snap
Lots of SP front snap, but I don't like the front snaps.. I got em cuz I needed dipes desperately and these were readily available.
Have a few SP side snaps, love these!
Liz's Cloth, bulky, but a great reliable work horse.
Just got some Elbees yesterday!
FMBG, Knickernappies (best pocket IMO! need Disposanot to try!!), Cloud9, Fireflies, Fuzbaby, TootSweet, Divine Coverings, Hidden Pearl, FCB, Pin Heads (best one-size IMO!), Country Cuttins, Mosaic Moon soakers (my fav), Bottom Bumpers...

I know I am forgetting some...

Let me see, Brittani has seriously only 1 of my diapers. The rest are mostly wahm dipes from others.

Starbunz
Fern and Faerie
Hippobottomus
Kissaluvs
Wonderoos
MuttaQin Baby - MY ABSOLUTE FAVE diaper
Ok, some mommy made poo-pockets, but they're not my design
some hand dyed prefolds

Right now she is wearing a trimmed premium prefold hand dyed bright orange.

Right now my daughter is squeezed into an infant prefold with a snappi :LOL . Sometimes, the basics are great for a hot day, kwim? I've been grovin on FCBs lately and some of my own AIOs I've been spinning up. I have a ton of other wahm dipes in our stash too.

Ok, get ready to gasp! I really love my cpf's and Bummis! I also use my own ultimate AIO's a lot because I know they won't wick when we're out and they are cute. I use some of my own fitteds and lots of my own doublers. I also love the other WAHM's I have although I love them so much I hate using them because then they will be dirty!
Aaron seems to have an overwhelming affinity for puddles and mud so I like the Bummis because he can't really damage them very much.

I don't make dipes, but as far as covers go, I would love to have Camden in all soaker shorts. But, I never have time to make them. He has two of my soakers right now. He wears one at night and one during the day at home. I rotate a couple of WAHM PUL covers and nylon pullons in there, too.

My idea soaker stash would be lots of soaker shorts to wear with tees, 3 or 4 soakers for under clothing, and a couple of pairs of pants for night. Who knows when I will get around to making them all though. And, I always look at other soakers, but I just cannot justify spending the $s when I can make them myself and I already know that they fit him just right. So, I guess until I do make them, I am stuck with a meager stash!

For dipes, I am boring, I use a lot of ME and cpfs. I buy other stuff, but usually use it a while and then sell it. I love to try WAHM AIOs, though.

I don't make diapers, but she's in CPFs all the time (its all I have right now). As for covers, she's either in the wool I've knitted for her (none of my more recent designs, they're all either from free patterns around the web or earlier versions of my newer designs) or I just put her in a nylon pul up cover from Babies R Us.

My daughter is like the shoemakers children....

OH I just had to point out the irony. Just a few months ago, the Berry Mama herself posted that Buckeye Bottoms were her favorite fitted, and I pressed her to explain why, etc, because you had just opened for customs! So...within a few weeks I got my package of 3 gorgeous diapers from you and I got a chance to see for myself why Buckeye Bottoms are her favorite fitted (I do so love mine too)! NOW I read that Berry Patch is YOUR favorite? That's so sweet and adorable and WHAT A COINCIDENCE! You two have gotta start trading diapers, obviously!!!!!

YOU MUST share stash pics. Like as soon as you get a chance to pick up a camera. I have to see this.

I have mostly beccabottoms for my girls although my youngest uses Euro prefolds (with my covers and pockets though).
My toddler wears almost all Ultra Trim AIO's with lay in soakers and a few UT
Pockets too with QD inserts. She wears BB Windpro Pockets and BB Microsnugglers for nightime with hemp trifolds.
My little one does have 2 ME Rikki wraps I LOVE and use for night (as well as a BB Windpro cover).
I usually keep the seconds for my girls as well. LOL!

Ds tends to get my "rejects" :LOL although he has two all cotton jersey that I made for him specifically while waiting for a hemp shipment. And I made him a really cool flatfold-prefold and some cute fitted prefolds. But otherwise we have some SP's, 2 LC, and a bunch of cpfs and ipfs. (there's others but they don't get much rotation)

They mostly wear my stuff since it is the most economical to me. (and yeah, mostly seconds!!)

Pretty much the only way I get to try other stuff is to trade with other wahms. I try to purchase one diaper a month though.

ohhhh, it's a new month!!!

Emily wears mostly my own made diapers, cause it's so much cheaper to make them myself, but...

I love other wahm diapers too. I have a Happy Heiny's, Buckeye Bottoms, Berry Patch, fmbg that I purchased too small...oops, Liz's Cloth, Ecobaby Organics - I love them, Devine Coverings (just got it in the other day and totally love it!), a few Celestial Baby and Bee-Bo's, a LilyBottoms, and a few more that I am probably not listing. I love them all. Oh, and she is wearing her Fuz right now.


I have a fondness for retro and vintage prints, so when I see those, I have to have them.

I was totally drooling over a Hidden Pearl Creations wool in one... she has/had one up that has dots... it's inspired by her grandmothers wall paper... awsome... a must have! I have to save for it!!! I really want to try some others too, like Pinhead and Valor Kids. Freshies! are high on the "must try" list as well. If I had a bigger paypal account, I would have one of each wahm diaper... would go down the list of wahms and order one of each.

Oh... and we also wear dyed prefolds often. I actually pin them

Its a case of the cobblers kids having no shoes
. Abigail has grown so far out of all of her wool its funny. I have a special pair I am knitting for her only at nursing time, which at this rate will be ready for Xmas .


She is wearing a quickly serged together cover that is too narrow through the crotch. It looks OK, but it works, but it is all windpro and we are so desperatly in need of medium covers....need to search out some WAHM's . Now, if onlly my DH would stop getting tickets
