Re: Beware of Babyland & other "China" eBay nappies

THey have to pass customs, etc. The China eBay nappies are sometimes the "same" factories doing "night shift" production with cheaper quality materials. By selling through eBay they don't have to deal with materials testing, quality control, etc since eBay lets anyone sell just anything, right?

Just thought I'd put that out there!

I couldn't agree with these lovely ladies more. There was an extensive thread last week on this very topic, it can get quite heated.

I am not bothered by supporting US based companies who have manufacturing in China, as they play by the rules regarding customs, taxes, and safety standards. The others though have far too many questions for my dollar to go to them.
