I’m getting down to the wire to purchase my cloth diapers and thought I’d see if anyone had bought cloth diapers from China? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lots-of-20-Diapers-20-cloth-inserts-Good-Condition-100-microfiberFree-Shipping-/160785241620?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item256f8c1614. The price was great, so I thought even if I just used them for covers? I’m assuming the inserts aren’t the most absorbent.
Bees with cloth diapering experience…should I risk it or just stop being cheap and buy some Thirsties/BumGenius/other name brand?

I’ve never done that, I have always bought from trusted sellers. For me it wasn’t a place to cut corners in.

I’m intrigued! I just placed a bid on some from china. If I win I will let you know! Heck I may even just buy 1 for $2.99 with free shipping to try it out and then buy more if it’s good. Sounds too good to be true though!

I haven’t bought from China on eBay but have bought from China, Sunbaby dipes to be exact. I didn’t have an issues with payment or receiving them, but haven’t been able to try them yet as DD is far from fitting in a OS dipe. Lol I’ve heard only good things about them though 🙂

Thanks ladies!! I think it’s probably worth a try 🙂
@Lolasmomma: That’s a great idea– to just buy one to try out and order more if they work well. Thanks!
@runsyellowlites: I’ll have to check out Sunbaby dipes. Thanks for the advice!

I don’t think I would buy random diapers from China because the quality and consistency could be really poor. I would stick to a more popular brand, like Sunbaby or Kawaii.
Also, check out diaperswappers.com They have a great For Sale or Trade board and I’ve gotten some great deals there.

I only buy from stores I know of. If you want a cheap diaper, but not messed up, Diaper Junction has Diaper Rites. They are $10 and they even have seconds for $7. (seconds aren’t used, but they have 8 snaps instead of 10)

I plan on cloth diapering and started my collection by using craigslist. I found some really great condition bum genius 3.0’s, elementals, and newborn sizes without paying more than $8 a diaper. Just an idea. And if you look in other cities, some people are willing to ship if you just ask.
