WE DON'T ALLOW REQUESTS FOR FREE DIAPERS

We are sorry that we cannot accommodate requests for free diapers. Unfortunately, if we allowed these types of requests we would be flooded with them. These type of requests will be edited or removed.

There are many threads available that provide great information on how to cloth diaper for very little money.

Here is a blog post that might help.
http://www.diaperswappers.com/diaper...-have-no-money

Please feel free to ask for advice about economic diapering solutions. We have many parents here who have had the experience of cloth diapering on a very limited budget.

Don't be discouraged. There are many cloth diapers available with fancy prints and expensive fabrics but they are absolutely not necessary if you are truly determined to cloth diaper.

There's a FFS board? Right? I thought you could find diapers there sometimes, or has that changed?

I've been wanting to make this stickie for a long time because I know the mod team has to deal with these type of requests frequently. I had a few minutes and finally got it done.

Now anyone can link new members with free requests this thread.

I have had financial struggles so this is not about making people feel bad about their requests. It's about informing members that are unaware of our policy and explaining a bit about or reasons for not allowing requests for free items.

Good point. We do have a FFS board where kind hearted members offer items up for only the price of shipping. Requests for free items are also not allowed there.

FFS can be found here:

I understand not wanting people to feel bad about being poor. I know what it is to be dirt poor. Been there myself. It is the feeling that so many come here for the sole purpose of getting free diapers that bugs me.


I feel like so many are like 'Hi, nice to meet you. I am poor. Do you have anything you can give me free?' It is a major turn off.

Anyway, links to the thread you provided will hopefully help people. Isn't there also a thread about doing cloth for really cheap? I will have to look for it later.

I know there have been really good threads about it before.

I agree that some of the posts about free diapers are worded in a way that are very off-putting. Some have mentioned being sent here by others which confuses me since this rule has been in place for a while.

Maybe those who only frequent the ffs forum. I swear when I look on it I don't recognize some of the posters.

While I know some mamas on here are comfortable financially many cloth diaper because of lack of funds not an excess of funds.

Maybe it is time to start another cloth diaper on the cheap thread. Then either link it or sticky it.
