Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

I'm looking at diapers for sale on ebay. I see a lot of listings, shipping from China, for pockets, all in ones, and one sizes. They are CHEAP! 10 for $30, 10 for $50 with free shipping....
Does anyone have any experience with them at all? Are they decent diapers, or do we get what we pay for? Are the all in ones actually waterproof or is the PUL too thin to hold? Does anyone know??

Re: Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

eBay dipes were actually some of my faovrite pockets for DD!
They come with a cheapy microfiber insert, but you can always use a prefold or a hemp insert or soemthing in place of it, but I've found that they hold up quite well!
And are great starter diapers.

The first dipe I bought was off of eBay. It had no name, and was a sized one. After the first wash, I found a straight pin inside of it!

i have a few from the seller grape-apple. They are not my favorite but they get the job done. I prefer alvababy and sunbaby because they have hipsnaps and they cost the same as the ebay no names.

It's very helpful to know names of the brands that work and the ones that do not. I tried to find reviews of some of the brands online, but couldn't find the namebrands that I was looking for.

I am expecting my first baby. I bought over a dozen, mostly from grape-apple. We'll see how they do. I've heard great things about them more lately, not as much a year ago.

There's Alva Baby, Giggle Life, Bamboo baby, and Rainbow BB at the higher priced end of the "generics", but there are lots and lots of lower priced ones that don't seem to have a name... I'm wondering about those, too.
