BTW, what have you potty-training or post-potty-training moms found to be the most convenient form of cloth diapering?

Blessings!

Yeah, you found us!

Other than trials, does anybody know if she keeps a stock of used diapers for sale individually? I'm trying to buy CDs locally, so I can save on shipping and and actually SEE and TOUCH before I buy, but CDs on Craigslist are few and far between, and usually far away from where I live (which ironically is not too far from this store).

That sounds great. Diana said that Saturday (16 of Feb) would work for her. She will be open from 10am - 4pm. If I can give her a head count she would have some refreshments for us . Great idea Cheryl

Well, I live near Bree's Bums so I asked her about that for a my then 3YO. Different brands fit differently and are thicker/thinner. I wound up getting 3 pairs of Imse Vimse training pants, which are something like $12. They work fairly well, although like all training pants if you have a super soaker it's going to leak. I use it on my 2.5YO now, and if she goes through all 3 in a day, I switch to the cheaper Gerber ones you can get at Walmart (or if I know she's due for a poop) I don't put it on her overnight, but I've heard from others that do they always use a doubler. My 4YO is still mastering potty training and has occasional accidents, so I just use the Gerbers on her. Her main issue is getting to the potty in time, so Gerber is fine for catching the drips but is not good for learning that wet feels icky, because it doesn't hold much at all.

BTW, I have noticed that Bree's and Babies Bottoms have some overlap in the products they carry, but there seems to be a big difference in what brands they carry. Maybe it's a branding license thing or whatever, but it seems like it would really be worth it to go to both stores if you are still trying to figure out what you might use. At least we have the option to see/feel it in DFW, many people have to buy online and pray they get what they need.

I'm a maybe, but I would be there late if at all. We have lunch plans that day with another family, so it depends how quickly I get done with that. And as you know, when both families have multiple kids the risk of cancel is 50/50 so if that happens then I can be there earlier.

Re: DFW mamas

Yeah if you looking to get diffrent dipers an don't know what type you want, i totally agree with the pp to go to BOTH stores. BB7M dosn't carry thirsties fitteds, or Bum Genius, and Brees has both of em! Pluss Brees has alot of other stuff like baby legs and Zutano and stuff.

Heidi, if you find anyplace to buy Aplix or PUL locally, please let me know. Or if you find someplace online that it's cheaper to buy in bulk from, let me know and maybe we can go into together on a purchase. I'm also interested in making my own diapers, but I'm just starting so I've only used Velcro for my prototypes. Thanks!
