I know better now!
I remember you posting about that before.

When I wanted to get started CDing, but I knew nothing about it, I spent about 11.00 on 12 pairs of gerber plastic pants Later, I bought two AWESOME covers from blurberrybuzz, then a pocket that the insert was too big for and that was sized wrong, and then an AI2 that either wasn't sewn correctly, or that just fit DS wrong, BC, when DS wore it, the aplix rubbed his belly and it almost made him bleed.

WTH Vinyl? And they werent even all the same length. Just like scraps. I paid alot of money for vinyl. LOL I guess I got bitten. Thats why from now on I am going to stick with buying from here. I have gotten 3 from here and was soo jealous when I received them. One, AmyWa, I think is her screen name, even tied it up with a matching ribbon and put a sucker on top. I thought that was the sweetest thing! So, anyone else have a funny/odd story about some CD they have recvd?

so sorry mama. I've been there.

Re: WTH I can't believe what she put in here!

Yeah I have two 'unworthy' AIO's from a EBay seller who actually sold quite a bit before I purchased and had good reviews. I went with her due to her being near me but decided later on that wasn't a good decision.
They are cute, but super thin, leave marks too easily and just aren't good at all for over 1/2 hour.

I've wondered how her reviews were so good but figure people post them before trying the diaper out. Cause these just aren't up to par for the $ spent on them.

Re: WTH I can't believe what she put in here!

I wonder if we have all dealt with the same mama? I bought 4 AIO's, a wet bag, and a wipe bag. 1 AIO had what appeared to be a bleach spot, 1 AIO, wet bag, and wipe bag were not the print that I ordered. So I sent them back at my cost and she did replace them. BUT the whole transaction took well over 2 months and the quality was aweful. Good thing I only bought them for the cuteness factor cause I don't even use AIO's. But the first time I washed them 2 of the insides practically fell apart and when I received the wetbag/wipe bags there were instructions to hand wash only......and yeah its so vinyl in the inside. I left HONEST neg feedback and she reciprocated with neg fb and was rude/nasty/lies!!!

BTW if it is the same mama I'm talking about she no longer sells on Ebay. She is selling elsewhere under a different name though......

Re: WTH I can't believe what she put in here!

I wonder why all these shoddy diaper makers are flocking to Ebay? I feel so bad for cloth newbies who don't know where else to look and wind up getting stuck with that kind of crap, since that's all there is to choose from now that used dipes are not allowed. My very first dipes were from Ebay...I don't know who made them, they were not name brands, just a bunch of used WAHM fitteds, but for a poor mama like myself who didn't know jack about cloth, they were great!

Re: WTH I can't believe what she put in here!

(((hugs)))

Mine was inserts for heavy wetters I was so excited to find them. They were so cute (like it matters) and they were the perfect width unlike the loopydo's So I get them and they are slightly thinner then a piece of paper. I think maybe they plump when you prep them. After 10 cycles and no plumping I try them out. yeah waste of money.

My one from fost was when I first started and I bought a BB OS cover every time I used it wet would go right through. It no longer had water proofing to it. I didn't know that at first oh well live and learn.

Re: WTH I can't believe what she put in here!

I just got 2 off Ebay...only wanted one but paypal sent the payment twice so instead of giving me the extra back of course she asked if she could just send an extra dipe. Cute print (I picked it) but you can tell that the inside is two folded in half MF towels from Sams club and the velcro isnt the kind that should be on dipes its hard and scratchy. They work ok but not ones I reach for. If you can imagine a huge over night pad with a piece of cloth in the shape of a diper over it thats what I got. no body to it except where the MF towels are. Take FOREVER to dry as well.

Re: WTH I can't believe what she put in here!

I bought some eBay dipes that I discovered were lined w/ a vinyl SHOWER CURTAIN LINER !!! I filed a PP dispute & won, AND the mama got thrown off of eBay because she ended up scamming lots of people out of money . She was in Desert Hot Springs, CA... can't remember the user ID right yet. I know her name was Dawn. She was also busted for setting up eBay accounts under aliases... GRR!!!
