Talking Dear wonderful mamas, I need a little help/advice.

Hi there Mamas,

I am just getting my fledgeling business Bee Froggy Baby off of the ground. (trying to at least) I am so excited about the diapers I have made so far and look forward to diapering some little tushes. Right now I sell my own design of AI2s/Pocket hybrid. I plan to also start selling cloth wipes, but I want to start off a little slow and expand as I go along. This is my dream and I hope I can make it come true with hard work and determination. I am betting though that I will also need a lot of good advice along the way.

I was wondering what the impression everyone gets of my diapers and if they like them and if I listed them well. I would like impressions on everything from look to materials used. Anything you can think of would be so appreciated.

Also for those WAHMs who are now successful or are on their way to success, What do you do to get noticed and where do you sell?

Here is my current post: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/....php?t=1585999

Thank you all so much for any help in advance!

Re: Dear wonderful mamas, I need a little help/advice.

I plan to eventually offer both snaps and aplix. I like both! I really want to make other mamas happy and solve a couple problems I had.

I have an etsy for when I used to sell handspun yarn (I stopped because my spinning is so much more fun as a hobby) and I likely will revamp that (though with a combination of etsy and paypal almost 10% is lost) I am probably going to create a fb page. I also plan to offer tons of cute prints!

Re: Dear wonderful mamas, I need a little help/advice.

From my point as an active buyer I'm going to be honest....
The good:
Photos are great...appealing, right lighting, overall great presentation
Love the business name
Materials look high quality
Cute fabric options
Unique closure tabs...I Looooove that they do not look like any other diaper on the market
Unique concept and design!

The Bad:
I associate things better with a logo...i.e. I see a swirl seashell and I immediately recall Ergo. I see Soooooo many diaper brands and makers online, often I forget who, what, when, where, how...a unique logo is a visual reminder for me.

The one thing that puts me off the most from buying these diapers is the colored stitching on the tabs...not that I mind color, but the stitching around the curves of the tabs is a bit wonky...maybe not a steady hand, or tension on the machine needs to be adjusted. When it is white you can not see that, the colored thread makes it stand out. I work in sales, and I may be a bit picky...but I look for quality. With so many other diaper makers out there I want something that really stands out.

Re: Dear wonderful mamas, I need a little help/advice.

Thank you so much for your advice.

I am really looking for this kind of advice and take it to heart.

I have been working on my logo this week. Trying to design it and put it onto my etsy. I also fixed the tension problems (which was only on the decorative top stitching and not on the seals of the diapers) but I also took your advice about the color of the stitching and tried it out and love the result. I use my diapers for my baby and love them very much but I know it is a competitive market and I am looking to make a quality product so I am tweaking things as I go which is why I plan to sell on the lower end of the spectrum.

I also just changed some prices and offered my diapers for testing. I have had them tested before with great results but am still looking for advice. I am willing to do things the slow and steady way because in the end I want every mama to want more of my diapers!

I agree about the colored stitching on the tabs. I am not a fan of it and would rather it match the tabs. I only bought diapers with snaps too (both my boys would rip Velcro off in 2 seconds flat). I also like to see pics of the diapers in action. I know they don't fit every baby/child the same, but it always gave me a better idea of how they actually looked when worn. The prints are super cute though! If either of mine were still in diapers I would try them out!

Re: Dear wonderful mamas, I need a little help/advice.

I am awaiting my supplies because I am starting to offer snaps. I like snaps best. I am super excited about it! I am trying to get action shots but my baby is just now learning to walk and is a blur in all pictures! That is next though!
