Don't you just wish

There was a store you could go to that had all cd's available for your viewing & touching pleasure?? I'm getting sick of trying to stare at pics and imagine what they fit like or how soft or stretchy they are. Plus, it runs into $$ trying something out to see if you like it. Just my vent for the day mamas!!

Re: Don't you just wish

I totally feel you! We live in Germany and so I have never been to a cloth diaper store. I had to rely on reviews and pictures to make my decisions, and I wasn't always happy with what I ended up with. That's why I decided to make my cloth diaper blog a PHOTO review one, so other mamas in my situation would at least have LOTS of GOOD pictures to look at. I probably should have done a cloth diaper trial too. It would have saved me a lot of time and headache.

I was lucky with DD that we lived in Boulder and had a couple different stores to choose from. I was worried that I wouldn't have one in Tulsa with this one but I just found it last week and it was awesome!! Are there none anywhere around you at all?

Re: Don't you just wish

i have a store here.....but they only carry a few brands and NEVER have exactly what I want in stock. So I still end up buying "blind" online.

Re: Don't you just wish

YES! I can't wait until the day where cloth is so mainstream that there are cloth diapers (the good ones) in every major store you enter! Like a section devoted to cloth. Many different brands. ahhh... one can dream. I also want cloth diaper commercials on tv! if its so expensive, like wouldn't it be cool if every diaper manufacturer donated maybe 50c off of each diaper to the commercial fund? I have all these ideas LOL

Re: Don't you just wish

I have a store near me with a huge inventory. There's still some things I can't get there though. They stock Flip but not the organic inserts for example. But there's a lot to look at and a lot to choose from. I'm so lucky to have that store near me.

Def. Wish there was a cloth diaper store around here. It's hard buying blind. I like to touch before I buy.

I'm glad I'm not alone! It's just that every baby has such a different shape/size then the next. I wish there was a store with every brand of cd- like walmart size . Okay, I'm dreaming a little but it would just save so much time & $$. I'm a very hands on person- like I want to know the softness or the stretchyness( is that a word?) factor! I want to play with the aplix & hook/loop. Commercials would be awesome! Someday when we are all gramdmas we will say, "I remember when..."
