Re: Class Project: Why do/don't you buy WAHM diapers?
I do have a small WAHM business, so I wasn't sure if it was okay to answer but I'm pretty sure my answers would be the same, either way
How much of your stash is WAHM made?
2/3 of the stash is WAHM
How did you decide to buy those brands (reputation, just fell in love, etc)?
Reputation, ability to get custom in exactly the fabrics my son needed (he needed stay-dry inners but breathable fleece covers/outers), the price for WAHM was not that much more than if I were to buy what he needed from a non-WAHM business, and our budget allowed me to go ahead and spend the little bit extra (comparable, non-WAHM product would maybe be $3-8 less per item, at most).
With some WAHM diapers, I tried a used one off FSOT to see if it would be acceptable, and then, when it was great, I went ahead and ordered more of them.
How pleased have you been with your WAHM purchases (and why?)
Very pleased; even things I purchased secondhand, that needed new elastics, have really been great construction/quality.
Why don't you buy more (or any) WAHM diapers?
My son is PLing and moving out of diapers during the daytime. He has plenty of nighttime diapers. I sewed his trainers, but we don't really use them much right now.
If money were no object, but all other situations were the same (WAHM stocking schedules, uncertainty about brands) would you have a fully WAHM stash?
