Random question: :-) what fitteds do you use under your bumby?

We still have some Sbish, but I like Lilylouhoo, Tangerine Baby, and Twinkie Tush. LLH and TB are both hybrid fitteds (so a layer of polyfleece in them to spread some of the moisture throughout the diaper instead of in one spot). All of them use cotton velour, which is UH-MAY-ZING!

Omg I cracked up so hard I woke the baby currently sleeping on me, hahahahaha!

I wasn't aware that agreeing to sell for a company meant that they could give you a laundry list of do's and don'ts that pertain to your personal life. That's pretty crazy!

I guess it was considered bashing, which is against the rules.

How many of us think that these comments will be mysteriously deleted or have a locked thread?

I'm glad I read this. After I saw the craze, I was thinking of becoming a retailer for sloomb. I don't need to have to deal with problems. I already have had some issues with CB which were resolved. I don't want to go through that again.

Re: Why are retailers dropping Sloomb?

Along with posts being deleted on her FB, I find it kind of ironic that Erin has a DS account and comes on periodically to promote sbish, but never (that I've seen) gets involved when the thread is about issues they're having regarding products or CS.

ETA: That's what I love about other retailers with DS accounts like grovia or Karen from GMD - they aren't afraid to come on a clear the air or help someone out with a problem with their product.

Rockabilly Baby, Dolce Baby and LilyLouHoo make AWESOME fitteds. Rockabilly and LLH are on Hyenacart and Dolce Baby is on bigcartel, if I recall correctly.

ETA - these are all Work at Home Moms, and I feel great about supporting them. Their diapers are all fantastically soft and squishy and I just like giving my money to moms who appreciate their customers.

There seems to be some questions as to why threads like this disappear.

Here is the link and applicable section of rules that all members agree to.

http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/rules.php

"Bashing of WAHMs or businesses is not acceptable. There is NO way to review both sides of a story and criticisms in threads can permanently ruin a business - which is the way many members make a living. We have never allowed these types of threads on Diaper Swappers therefore we are now applying the rule to ANY business that is outed or called out. If you post the business name the thread will be deleted."

No mystery or conspiracy just enforcement of rules.

This thread probably did not get yanked right away because it started with a legitimate question. Whether it has strayed from its original intent will be decided by an admin.

Thanks for clarifying. I honestly thought it just applied to wahm's.
