Basically someone creates a group on facebook & everyone interested in getting items for a discounted price joins. Everyone puts down what they want on the spreadsheet & the host does a bulk order from the items site. All of the items are sent to the host & the host sends them to the buyers

All of the co-ops that I'm a part of do more than diapers though too. They do baby leg warmers, backpacks, feminine items, wipes, wetbags, cloth diaper detergent, etc. Each co-op is a specific brand though too(there's the group & then the group does several co-ops at the same time so that all members have access)

People all purchase things from one retailer to recieve wholesale prices. You put your choices on a spreadsheet, and when the host (person running the co-op) closes it, you pay an invoice for your share and usually $1-$5 co-op fee depending on what you ordered. The host then orders the goods and the manufactuer sends the goods to her house. She then seperates everyones order and you pay her to ship it to you. :)

I like prefolds average like 2$ each, but I'm not sure. Some people snappi them, some don''t. You can just trifold them and lay them in a cover, but it won't keep poop off the cover that way.

They could stand to be a little more snug in the waist, but crossed over they didn't fit right. They finally don't gap in the legs so he can wear them. He's exactly 15 lb and 27-1/2 in long.
