Is Ebay ok to buy from?

I'm still a littler newer to CDing & can't really afford to buy tons of new stuff but I was wondering if Ebay is safe or ok to buy from? I saw some actions but I don't know what is good prices. I am trying to CD my older child but she is almost done potty training so it's only at night she wears a diaper but I have a baby due in just over a month and I am trying to get ready. I heard prefolded ones are cheapest but I don't know if they are too hard. I have some pull on ones that you stuff that my friend gave me for my older kid but I don't really like the stuffing aspect.

Like is this too much?

Or what would be too much?

These auctions are a couple towns over from me & the girl said she'd let me get them instead of shipping so I don't need to worry about that.

For newborns (mine were 8 lbs.) I used infant prefolds and newborn prorap covers.

I don't think I would get the first auction of preemie proraps but I would for sure bid on the 32 prefolds. I wonder why no one is bidding on them though...

Maybe they aren't bidding b/c shipping is higher or something? I dunno. The girl tells me that prefolds are heavy but I dunno because they are just material? She said I can pickup though so then I don't have to pay the shipping.

I think the shipping is SUPER cheap so it can't be that. The option to pick them up is EXCELLENT. Oh the auction does have a reserve though...wonder how high she has it at.

Since I already have 60 <hiding> infant prefolds I won't bid on that auction.

I highly recommend granitesmith diapers on ebay if you're looking for prefolds. Brand new and very reasonably priced!

yes, that is so sad about the owner. But yep, they're selling like crazy. I just bought some toddler pfs last week.
