lotus bumz vs. alva
i just was on the lotus bumz website per a friends suggestion and noticed that the PUL designs are exactly the same as Alvla diapers. does anyone have both and know if they are made by the same company, just sold under different names? i'd love to hear from mamas that use lotus bumz!

I don't know for a fact, but I would agree, they look like another china made cheapo similar to Alvas.

Yeah they were on Eco Baby Buys the other day and I posted a thread on here asking the question. I think someone replied with a similar answer to what I just said.

Re: lotus bumz vs. alva
Alva/Lotus Bums are both made from same factory. They will put whatever label you want on them, so yes one and the same.... It sucks because Zulily also has "Blossom" cloth diapers today for "50%" off retail once again just another Alva.

Don't get me wrong though we LOVE our Alva diapers great workhorse diaper for great price..

Re: lotus bumz vs. alva
oops I wanted to add that's only @ the Alva $3 price :). Unfortunately there are a lot of new to cloth mamas thinking they are getting something else and thats not right.

Re: lotus bumz vs. alva
Yeah, I bought some on Zulily a while back and was bummed to find that they were Alvas (I had been away from CDing for a while and had missed the super influx of Alvas; it was still just Coolababys and Sunbabys, and Kawaiis were brand new my first time around.)

They are fine. But I would never knowingly pay more than $5 or so apiece.
