Testing a nighttime diaper. *Added Pictures*

Hi!
I have made a nighttime diaper, fitted or with PUL. There is a hidden layer if OBF and the inner liner is OBV which also helps with preventing wicking. I was wondering how many testers do you send out inorder to gather enough feedback to start selling them! I think they will work very well, I have been trying it out on my own LO but ready to send out testers! Do you think $17 is a fair testers price?
This is the diaper I came up with, I will post the soaker after I make it. It will be a pedal style with top soft layer against baby's skin, zorb 2, OBF with a second set of layers, knit to cordinate and 2 more layers of heavyweight OBF. What do you think?




Thanks!

Re: When asking for testers

Depends on how many rounds of testing you are planning on doing, IMO. I think for the first round of testing, it should be the cost of materials + shipping. This would give you a base line...maybe do just a few testers. Get a few different sizes, maybe a newborn, a toddler and a heavy wetter? this is where I think people would get the answers to how well the diaper was made, did it work, how long was it worn..etc. That way you are covering your bases.

If doing a second round of testing, after addressing anything that comes up during the first round, the diaper should be essentially ready to sell, but now you are collecting feedback on odds and ends, like how fast shipping was, customer service experience..etc. At this point I would just take 10-20% off your retail price.
eta: and I would probably say maybe 5-10 testers in this round
Of course this is all IMO! Let me know if you are going to do testers, I may be interest

Have you decided if you need testers and your price. Would love to try it out! Looking for something for my 35 lb ds and then can use in when this newbie gets here in July.
