Goodmama tell me abot them?
 
I'm so out of the loop. I see a lot of these on Spot's NIP, tons all the time it seems, is the "store front" on Spot's? I don't get it why are there so many new on there?

The fact that there are so many makes you think they must have issues or something but the asking prices tells a different story. Is it people snatching them up then jacking up the prices like people do with ebay and concert tickets etc. :headscratch:

BTW are they that amazing that they are worth $43? Am I missing out on something.

I am not a big fan. I'd much rather buy a Poppy Fields diaper!

Because people buy them, don't use them & sell them to buy more they don't use. Addiction, collection, hoarding etc. They are sold like before from the goodmama store. But they have these "designer" diapers where people buy the fabric & have them made into the diapers, like SYOF on steroids because it is all the time. Then there are fussy cuts where you have better chances at getting the cut of xyz on the bum you want. Because nobody wants upside-down stuff or half of that cute slutty Alice.

The VOLUME has nothing to do wiht the QUALITY.

They are a pretty nice diaper. SUPER soft on the bum of baby. I have an INSANE stash of diapers, and about 1/3 are Goodmamas.

Personally, I find Sbish EASIER to launder, but the GMs stay SOFTER. For nighttime, sbish hold more. But GMs are perfect for day-use.

They aren't absorbent enough for day or night use for us, but not much other than sbish is.

This is a whole other language to me. :giggle: You lost me at Fussy Cuts. LOL

So basically people buying them just to buy them and say they got one and then not actually planning on using them. What is the regular price on them?

The Fussy Cuts are where you get a certain part of the fabric, you get to choose IIRC. Some fabric tells a story, so to speak. Has different things on it and say it is Alice in wonderland and you really want Alice on the bum. Then you can get that. Or you love the cute little Batman not Wonderwoman. You pick.

I can't say exactly about why they buy them. Some get caught up in it. Some find another they have to buy before their diaper is even made since lots are pre-order. Some have loads of money. It always seemed like a popularity contest.

I don't think all buy them planning to not use them. But in my case, it was too hard to actually let my kid poop in a diaper I paid 3 times retail for. So they sat there. Then I sold them.

Retail varies depending on if it is a designer diaper or just a regular diaper. The rules have changed since when I was in deep. I was an addict back in '09. Then you paid $39.xx for 1 diaper and you had to stalk and pray you got it. Feelings got hurt because I wasn't a "cool kid" didn't know the tricks to score one as fast as the other"in the know" mamas. Right about the time I sold them off, I was "let in on the secret". Since then they went down to $28 in price when they went through a slow period & now I have seen them more than $50 just from GM headquarters. Those are "special" Hard to find fabrics I have been told.

Wow. Speaking of Alice it's like going through the rabbit hole it seems.

I haven't been looking for that long at them, a couple months, but I haven't seen a print I thought was amazing honestly. IDK.

I think I'll stay far away I don't need another addiction. LOL At $50 a diaper though I would want it to wash itself. :giggle2:

It is another world! Not for me. My addiction caused much strain to my marriage. So not worth it.


I do have a few printed fitteds. I got a blue cranky clouds from Poppy Fields Shop half price when I won a coupon on Facebook & it is beautiful. C/S is amazing. DiaperSwappers own *Peanut* is the WAHM that makes them & I just love it. It is so absorbant, I am in :wub:
