Re: UPDATE with pics and review! New Diaper Safari cover!

I am going to buy one of these DS covers and inserts and see how they compare to the Happy Flute covers that I get. They might be the same product in different colors, but I am happy to support a US company that is working hard to provide great customer service and affordable cloth diapering products. Plus I'll get the DS cover like a month or more before I get my Happy Flutes!
I've actually heard of many people buying a new diaper to try, only when they got it, it ended up being just like one they already had. Especially people new to cloth diapering that don't know about re-branding. They expect a different brand of diaper to actually be different. And not everyone who sells re-branded diapers has good pictures of the inside or offers the same colors or patterns.

Mass produced in China does not mean a product is crappy or dangerous. Most products we use daily in the US were mass produced in China.
I'm not sure if this was directed at me but I don't think it's "stupid" of me not to use a previously loved cover if I find out its not safe for my daughter...

Like I said, I don't mind the fact that its made in China. The Alva thread just got me thinking about them. I'm not saying these are Alvas though.

I've put in a call and an email to customer service at DS. They have been very helpful to me in the past so hopefully ill get the answers I need.
