Is it just me or are wahm diaper prices on the rise?
 
It seems like many wahm os fitteds are at least $27 EACH?? Are diaper materials going up *that* much:headscratch:?

Curious to what other ppl are finding.

yes, materials are really high, and difficult to find- I know a WAHM who spend a month looking for bamboo fleece and had to close her shop because she had nothing to sew with!

OS use a lot of fabric:thumbsup: and fabric prices have gone up a lot over the last year or so. i know i had to raise the prices of my nb diapers and training pants bc i was loosing money after buying the materials. so its probably right. most WAHMs dont buy materials in the wuantity that huge manufacturers do(BG, FB, etc) so the fabric costs are higher.

Yep. Materials are pricey and these WAHMs have little children to feed, too, kwim? They have to make a good profit at the end of the day.

I've noticed this even with the "bigger" WAHM stores like Knickernappies. The first time I bought their one size microfiber pocket I bought it for $19.95 now they sell for $21.95.

I bought a pocket from a WAHM here for like $18 (which was a splurge for me) and now she has them listed for over $30 each. I wanted to continue to buy WAHM and USA-made but the price gouging is just insane.
