Bummis prefolds? Or Kawaiis?

Postby Beegee » Tue Nov 01, 2011 6:48 pm

Hey ladies,

I hear so much greatness about Green Mountain products, but they don't ship to Canada. The only prefolds I've found in stores in my city are Bummis. Other than that, I could order some generic 'chinese prefolds' online I guess.

Anyone use Bummis before? Thoughts? Or what other PF brand would you "yay" or "nay"?

ETA: Just noticed reasonable prices on both the prefolds and shipping for Kawaiis dipes. Anyone try these?

Thanks, Sisrea. I just checked out Little Lions, thanks for the tip. Their shipping rates to Canada are quite extreme... I guess the weight of shipping cloth is quite high for these diaper distributors! (this was the main complaint of GMD too, that to ship to us here is too pricey for the worth of the diapers)

As a side note, it looks like Little Lions are shutting down their business. They ask on their home page if anyone is interested in buying it from them!

Yea from what i understand from diaperswappers that the reason the shipping is so expensive is because the weight of the cotton in the PF is heavy which makes shipping expensive.

oh and I heard that kawaiis aren't great for chunky leg babies, leaving red marks.. I haven't actually tried them.

I really am a fan of just the "name" brand diapers simply because they are more expensive but the quality is there and there is the warranty as well... But that is just me.

I use Kawaii pocket diapers, and they definitely have tight leg holes. But it works fine for my little guy because he's long and thin and his legs are not very chubby.

I use GMD PFs and am not sure which other brands are decent... so I can't be of much help. Sorry!

I've heard great things about Bummis pfs. I love my generic ones too. They have held up really well.
