Re: Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

I just read on some stranger's blog (which came up in a google search) that several people have bought sunbaby diapers. They say that they are obviously lower quality than name brands such as fb and bg, but they *are* worth the money that they pay and they have no complaints about their function (except they might not be so good at night...which obviously would depend on what their stuffed with.)


As I was looking on ebay the first time, at all of these huge lots of low-priced diapers, I didn't even notice the names of brands, so this discussion has been super helpful.

I'm more of a diaper-hoarder. Once a diaper comes into my house, it doesn't go out. I use them until they are too worn out to even give away :-)

Re: Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

I love Coolababys! You do need a second insert but we just pair the Coolababy insert with a BG newborn doubler. It holds well though not as well as a Bum Genius. Also, they do not have laundry tabs for the washer. Even still though, if you are on a budget and willing to use a doubler or change a little more often, then they are perfectly usable. Cute prints too!

I think the Babyland are usable but not as good as Coolababy. You will need a doubler as well and the material and stiching is not as sturdy imo. I bought one for a friend to try so got to see myself how it feels. Just not as nice as Coolababy. My friend said it worked fine...not great but usable.

Have not tried Sunbaby or Alvababy.

On a side note, we have used the Coolababys for awhile now...at least 6 months. Wash every 3 days usually. They look brand new.

Re: Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

I'm loving this thread! I have been wanting to try out all different kinds, its so much fun. So I love hearing about all of the brands you have used. Its helpful in what to order or how many. I have to admit I think I am a little bit of a hoarder as well. I have prefolds and covers from my 6 year old daughter. Now I love the idea of resale but right now we have 2 in diapers and who knows of the plans God has for our family size so....


although I did put the fb on here I just bought only because I didn't like the fit.

Re: Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

I got some Yucky Ducks ones...they were not good. I don't know if they have those anymore. I also got some from China that were OS pockets. I forget the name but they were very surpirsingly compareable to BGs. They did run a bit bigger--wouldn't fit until 10-12 pounds but fit longer than BGs do too. I used them for one kid and they held up just fine...I was really impressed. DD2 couldn't have MF so we sold all of them so I don't know how they'd hold up for the long haul.

Re: Anyone buy cheap diapers on ebay?

We have a bububibi and really like it I'm getting another one to use since its the only OS diaper I've found that fits my son good still he's 29lbs but has outgrown the rise in all other OS I've got. I have some coolababy and alva on the way for baby girl
