I don't know the specifics or inside scoop just what happened here.

You started hearing about quality issues here and there. The kids of true collectors aged out of cloth diapers. The group think that fueled the diaper lust started fading and other brands filled the niche.

It's pretty amazing to those of us that saw the craze in it's heyday.

That is for sure. The days of $300+ diapers to sit in the plastic bag to the lady who used them on her incontinent dog.

It doesn't feel that long ago that we were still seeing used rare going for ridiculous amounts at auction but it must have been a few years ago.

I wonder if this seller wished they had sold sooner:

Back in the day she would have had couple thousand dollars worth of diapers. Not so much now.

I'm curious to know what she will get. Younger moms won't even know what those names mean.

Re: Goodmama closed?!!

Are these diapers worth hunting down? I'm new- why the fuss?

Yes and no.

They were made in the US by moms who sewed for the owner.(that's how they were promoted.)
The prints were adorable. They were soft and very fluffy (con if you like trim.)

There were quality control issues as they grew. Snaps were exposed if I remember correctly. The amount a drama around the brand was insane. For example, just pointing some of the cons out would have caused a blitz attack by devotees.

But if you can get a great condition fitted at a great price I'd say try one. I do think lots of moms genuinely loved them.

Yes the snaps were exposed that is what I hated about them. They were also out during the height of the wool movement. Everyone wanted cute, soft fitted for under they wool longies.
