That sucks, what did you order? I ordered prefolds that were supposed to be back ordered for 2wks or so but I got them a few days later. That was the only order I ever made through them though.

Not that issue, but I have nothing but issues with Cotton Babies.

Lol. Mine too... But my econobum covers were "backordered for 5 days" and it took them 2 weeks. Plus they don't send shipping emails. I only knew it shipped because I checked the site.

I really want to try a RaR pocket diaper. So, I need to sell some stuff that I have. Anyone interested in some really cute wool longies? They fit my 11 month old a little big. I have no idea how much I would want for them. They're hand-knit. I also have an econobum cover that laura wanted at one point but then she bought other stuff so I dont know if you still want that? Anyway.

they don't?? I just now ordered one cover from them and it said they would send me an email with my tracking number........these gerber pants are already falling apart and it hasn't even been a week! My hubby spent $5 on some stupid xbox credits to get a superman suit for his character so I was like "screw it! I am buying a new diaper cover, then!" I hope it doesn't get delayed.

You can just log back in to check. :) The ones we ordered were from their seconds sale... I think the amount of orders they got that week during that sale (on not perfect items) makes them take longer. My regular (non seconds stuff) didn't take long.

They were given to me from a member on here, so I'd kinda like to pay it forward and possibly give them to someone.

That's actually a good idea. Do you know of any? I'm only in the Squishy, and an Alva one on fb.

I use a little coconut oil and witch hazel diluted in water. But you can use just water.
