Swaddlebees & blueberry price increase

Abby's lane just posted this on Facebook that all SB & BB diapers are increasing in price! I'm so bummed... We love the sized simplex but they are going to be over $22 after January 16th!

ETA: "We wanted to announce a few price increases coming up shortly so you can "buy early" if you are eyeing these goodies
Swaddlebees/Blueberry has announced the following changes effective on January 16th:
Newborn Basix $17.95, sized Basix $21.95, Newborn Simplex $18.95 and sized Simplex $22.95. These are fantastic diapers, made ethically in the USA with great warranties, unfortunately manufacturing has forced a few of these increases to keep them in good supply~"

I'm guessing it's all about supply and demand.

Good thing I have all I need for DS and little lady on the way. I wouldn't pay that much for them (and I love them). Now everyone has an excuse to buy WAHM diapers

They are probably raising for inflation or will use that as the reason. I'm completely against this. If they are going to raise the price they should come out with as new diaper or at least generation of diaper... These aren't like a dollar more but a few which is a total turn off IMO.

Booooooooo!

I love these diapers. Good thing I bought what I did, when I did. I don't know if I love them enough to spend $22 on a sized diaper though. Hum....
