So I read this and thought you were talking about doublers...but are you actually talking about prefolds?

Let me know if you find it! I might be interested in buying it.

Worth a shot, for that price.
So...turns out that Osocozy diaper doublers are $2.50 EACH at wonderfulandwild.com. Not $2.50/dozen, as I thought. They're not labeled very clearly and I am asking them for a refund, but wanted to let you know so you don't make the same mistake I did. Very disappointing. I also ordered some preemie prefolds from Cotton Babies, I think those are what we will actually be using with our Sandies.

Thanks for the input ladies!

Wowza. It's crazy that they are as much or more than prefolds.

I know! I was kind of shocked. Contacted them about a refund, so we'll see what happens.

Re: Help me make this work!

Update: they refunded it. I had to pay shipping. But it was okay.

I think my real issue with the diapers and covers was...I just don't really like snaps. So snap diapers + snap covers got old really fast. I also don't really like bamboo for diapers. So I switched to small cotton sandies and prefolds, and that helped a lot, plus I got some thirsties hook & loop wraps, and I have a few soakers/longies that work well too. I still have some snap covers, but it's not such a big deal when they aren't ALL snap...and when I'm not super sleep-deprived/hormonal from just having a baby. Thanks for the tips and advice!

Re: Help me make this work!

I don't use snap covers at all. I do tolerate snap fitteds. Once I started using wool and fleece I got spoiled to it because it was like the diaper was an AIO and the cover was just their pants.

I'm glad they refunded! That still seems insane to me.

Re: Help me make this work!

There was a mistake on the listing. There was supposed to be a drop-down menu with different options for how many to order, but it wasn't working. The price seemed a little too good to be true for a dozen...but it was expensive for one. So it was confusing.
