Ordering diapers from Mexico?

Anyone here order CD's from the US to Mexico? How much did you have to pay for duty / tax? a friend told me it was like 400 pesos per diaper which seems crazy.

My DD has almost outgrown her NB diapers, and the 3 mexican brands I've tried don't fit her well and leak, so I want to order some Blueberry pockets and some Tot Bots eay fit, since those fit her really well. I have my son's BG 3.0's but the BGs are also not the best fit for her, she's a slim baby.

Hola! ¿Qué marcas tienes? ¿En qué ciudad estás? Yo feliz de conseguir los pañales aqui.

Probé muchas marcas con mi hija de 3 meses, y lo que mejor que le queda es Tots Bots y los Blueberry (Los Swaddlebees Simplex también ya le quedan bien, antes estaba muy chiquita). De las marcas mexicanas probamos Ecopipo, Rorobebe y Mamiplanet, todos se chorrean. Tengo los Bumgenius y Happy Heiny's que use con mi hijo pero le quedan grandes de las piernitas porque es mas delgada que el.

Re: Ordering diapers from Mexico?

So I finally decided to take the leap and ordered 5 Blueberries from Nurtured Family in Houston. The package arrived today and I didn't have to pay duty / taxes! I paid $31 for shipping, but no sales tax, or duties at the border. My guess is it depends on where the diapers are made, since until recently there was an extra tax for items made in China coming into Mexico.

Anyhow I just wanted to let everyone know that it won't break the bank to order diapers from the US.

Yikes man international shipping is a killer. I paid 45 once for flip inserts and it was still cheaper then buying in Germany.

Joys of expat living right...

Glad you got your diapers

Yeah, and you'd think that since Mexico is right next to the US it would be cheaper. Heck Mexico City is closer to Houston than NYC is. But at least I get to hire help (i.e. housecleaning) for a lot less $!

Free trade agreement between North American countries lets products made in North America cross NA borders with no duty.

Not all of them, there are some exceptions. But I got lucky and the diapers apparently fall in that category, even though the Tots Bots are not made in North America. In fact the invoice did not state where the diapers where made and the package seemed intact, so I don't know how they would know at the border where the diapers where made.
