why don't you see a lot of used wahm diapers on the swap?

Why don't you see a lot of used wahm diapers on the swap? Just curious as I'm building my stash...

Do you mean on the fsot?

I see wahm diapers very often.

I'm new at this, but from what I've seen they're more expensive than commercial brands.

I think they tend to be pretty well-made, so mamas probably hang onto them for future babies My entire stash of GADs (fleece pockets and OS semi-fitteds) is secondhand and it took me several months to find them all on FSOT, and they are still in great shape. One fleece pocket needed a new snap, which I replaced, and the leg elastic was a bit loose so I replaced that as well. I also have a secondhand Preston's that seemed pretty old, it was an older style w/fewer snaps across the front, and it's still great as well. I ended up buying the rest of my Preston's new b/c I couldn't find what I was ISO (breathable fleece) on FSOT!

ETA -- > I will probably save at least one Preston's for my son's memory box. They are his fav diapers and I think it will be cute to keep!

Yes they generally are more expensive, but generally only by a few dollars per item. You often have more fabric selection from a WAHM as well There are some "commercial" brands I really like though, Imse Vimse OS terry contours are really nice and I don't see them pop up as much on FSOT, also Hemp Babies flats are nice and not as common.

I think because they are not mass produced, but in general WAHM diapers are better quality than their mass produced China counterparts. People tend to try the mass produced brands and hate them, and then fall in love with the WAHM brands and never let them go.

yeah I meant for sale not the swap.

okay good! I have about half name brand and half wahm. Since you mainly see like 90% name brand I was worried that they didn't have a good resale value. I'll continue spending way too much time and money looking at all the cute diapers. At least I'll have a newborn soon to spend time on instead! Looking forward to being too tired to buy something daily! (or at least buying less!)
