Econobums Jules and Other Rumors

Everyone is still obsessed with Jules.  There have been memes about it.  There have been flame wars, there have been Facebook threads deleted, and there have been tantrums.  And rumors.  Oh, yes, there have most definitely been rumors.  The latest rumor that I’ve heard has been that there will be an Econobums Jules kit released.

Buyer Beware – Cloth Diapers on eBay

This morning, I was perusing eBay.  Sometimes I go through to see if there are any hard to find cloth diapers on eBay.  Maybe it’s something that I’m looking for (like an AMP Very Cherry) or it’s something I already have and I’m curious what I could realistically sell it for when the time comes.  Or, you know, maybe it’s just because I’m cloth diaper obsessed and have too much time on my hands.  Whatever.

Recommending China Cheapies Makes Me Cringe

Without fail, I see people post frequently about wanting to start cloth diapers, but not being able to afford the “expensive brands” like bumGenius.  (Bonus points for seeing this come up on the Cotton Babies Flash Mob, where people are slightly rabid over their bumGenius diapers.)  Sometimes people will recommend ways to get cloth diapers without paying retail price.  Then there are the comments that make me cringe: I see people recommending China Cheapies.

Don’t get me wrong; it’s not about snobbishness and elitism.  I do have some China Cheapies in my stash.  However, when I’m speaking with people who are new to cloth diapers, I don’t feel comfortable recommending China Cheapies at all.  There are a few simple reasons for this. [Read more…]

Since hanging out on the Cotton Babies Flash Mob Facebook group, I’ve learned that there’s a lot of interest in the Genius Series diapers… as well as some questions about what diapers are, in fact, part of the Genius Series and a whole lot of other questions.  So with that in mind, I bring you the Comprehensive Guide to the bumGenius Genius Series Diapers.

bumGenius Jules? It’ll Cost You a Kidney.

The bumGenius Jules diaper has just flown off the shelves.  People were so amazed (and maybe a bit disappointed) that when the bumGenius Audrey came out, people decided to buy it if they could get it, even if they weren’t sure they really liked it.

bumGenius Jules? It'll Cost You a Kidney (Cloth Diaper Addicts)There’s also been a lot of hard feelings among those who don’t have a bumGenius Jules or Audrey.  There’s been more than a tiny bit of anger at Cotton Babies for making such limited runs… and at the moms who are essentially flipping them for more than double the retail price.

I get it.  It’s frustrating to have a diaper sell out insanely fast and to have retailers have to put limits so one person can’t buy an entire case of them to mark up.  It’s frustrating to be in Canada since our Audrey diapers are just now starting to filter in. [Read more…]
