It might have been. I was looking for cheap pockets because I need a bigger stash of pockets because i'm getting rid of most of my prefolds(prefolds make up 2/3rds of my stash. 18 prefolds, 11 pockets, 3 covers)

I've been doing bamboo behind MF. Payday I need to get hemp. I don't have any fitteds are they better for night? I was thinking of getting a few I have tons of covers I don't use.

Sometimes for some babies. It's worth a try. Fitteds weren't doable for Adrien at night but the hemp behind mf worked like a charm.

I did my research before setting a price. I looked at comparably made and materials major brands and WAHMs first and then kind of averaged them out.



I really don't understand how some WAHMs set their prices, let alone how people price used. I'd prefer to buy new over used and I'll pay more for WAHMs if I know the quality is good because a lot of time and energy goes into making a good diaper. Some are just clearly not worth the prices I see on them.

So true!



Im trying to steer clear from bigger brand - mass produced.



The few WAHM's ive purchased from are amazing.. i was SO shocked when i got my first WAHM diaper, totally impeccable (squishy butt)



The stretch in the elastic was even nicer then my big brand names - hence why im in love with them lol!

I think some WAHMs start off as high as they think people will go for, not what they think would be reasonable.

This too... The only new stuff I own is wahm stuff... I'd buy more of it and try more if it weren't so expensive but I'm willing to pay... I just don't want to pay $40 for one diaper. :(

I did the same thing... looked at etsy and compared products until I got ones that looked similar to my quality and priced like that.



I know some ladies do it by price of materials, then add time invested... which I understand you don't want to be paid "slave labor" prices... but just because you're a novice and take 2hrs to do a 20min project doesn't mean it's worth 2hrs of work. :/

I think some are just plain high LOL



Etsy is always good for a laugh... some of those things are so basic and easy yet they charge so much (not talking about diapers in particular on this comment)

I got some off etsy once.. it arrived and the elastic snapped as soon as i stretched it GENTLY.



The workman ship wasnt the greatest either.. but she only charged about $17 from memory.

I try to stay away from Etsy and Hyena Cart unless I'm looking for new WAHMs to pitch. I LOVE doing reviews/giveaways for WAHMs, I'd rather do it for them than big companies. But I can't take too much of it Some WAHMs not only charge too much for bad work, but they are rude, ungrateful and entitled. I hate when WAHMs say, "I don't understand why people buy from big companies. Support WAHMs. It took me hours to make that diaper and you should pay 50$ for it even though you're cloth diapering to SAVE money, or you're (not supportive, unamerican, selfish, rude, etc). There are some great WAHMs out there and also some rotten ones.
