Quoting I'm His Amy He's My Rory:" Perfectly said. If you are a sell out, expect to get ripped off, pretty much."


Exactly. These diaper companies are out sourcing to China to get diapers cheaper than Alva's, then turn around and sell them to diaper retailers for a huge mark up, then the retailers mark them up a tad bit more. If they were to keep everything USA made, they may have a bit less of a profit, but they would have more security. And to call us sell outs for buying Alva's is further insulting considering a majority of the diaper companies do the exact same thing, essentially. They are getting their shit from China to sell to us. Just because it has an "American" label on it doesn't change that fact.

I think it's ridiculous that they are making them in China for dirt cheap and selling them for 3x as much as Alvas.

Quoting The Rachel:" lol i sold mine off awhile ago. Kinda sad but I don't need it. I did order a lovelace though...from Alva. lol"

I thought about it, lol. But I prefer covers so I ordered a lovelace in a Flip instead. But I'm totally considering buying an Alva with penguins on it because it's the only place I can find penguins that aren't Christmas-y

Or 4 times. Or more. These companies are outsourcing, they are made for less than we get Alva's. Most likely the wholesale price. Then the diaper ends up to $20-$25 by the time it reaches us. I mean, it's a whole "system" of getting diapers that are STILL from China no matter how you look at it.

Corporate greed at it's finest.

Right. I can understand why WAHM diapers are so expensive, but if you're making shit in China, chill the f**k out with the prices.

I have absolutely no problem paying the price for say, AMP's. Their diapers are made in Canada, but still. Same with WAHMs, I don't mind paying that price. But I have a really hard time paying it for say, Fuzzibunz, or Grovia who outsoure to China. Same with Rumparooz, unfortunately, they now have out sourced to China as well.
