this is actually a pretty common practice across many markets, not just diapers

Hmmm these are on zulily again and I almost got a few to check them out... But at 9.99 I guess that's not happening... Sad because the patterns are sooooo cute! I'm glad I checked here first! Figured I would bump this up in case anyone else was wondering as well!

Re: Lotus Bumz

Yeah I just found out AFTER I ordered one lol. I couldn't help it the print was too cute to pass up lol. Definitely an impulse buy! We have Alvas and it looks like the ones up there are rebranded color snaps and I hear those are nicer than the regular Alvas so we'll see.

Does anyone know if these ones have the double gussets like the color snaps? I mean the outer appearance looks like them but even on the LB site I don't see any photos of the inside so I'm not completely sure if this style is the same as the Alva.

It's not legal; they're not CPSIA-compliant.

Aw boo! Lol, hopefully it works for us. Just ordered one since I wasn't too familiar with the 'brand'.

Aren't any diapers with double gussets violating Kangacare's patent?

I think there's some kind of variation... But it probably does.... There are a few diapers that still have them though
