Where to Get Them
I have purchased from the following places and most have shipped to my US address where I have picked them up when I went home. You could also request shipping to Taiwan since most are WAHMS (work-at-home-moms) and will accommodate yor needs, but it will take a long time or cost a lot in shipping.
www.earthbaby.com They have great “sets” and can supply a beginning cloth diaper home. I purchased my first “set” of newborn sized diapers and covers from them and used the diapers until a few weeks ago (my son just turned 8 months) when Declan out grew them. The covers were outgrown after about 5 months.
www.babybellebottoms.com Mary is a great WAHM and she has connections with Jennifer Chau (they are on a list together). Mary is great and has awesome customer service! She stocks all sorts of diapering supplies.
www.cutest-cloth-diapers.com Jennifer at Little Lambs Diapers makes some really cute diapers (and Mama pads too if you are ready) and she has shipped to Taiwan. You can fit 3 diapers into a global priority envelope. I really like her fitted diapers.
Here are some sources that I have not personally used, but have heard good things about:
www.wahmall.com Check out the auctions for Honeyboys diapers. They are really cute, but they retail for about US seventy-five dollars each.
www.babykicks.com Krista sells Fuzzybunz and Hemp Inserts (Joey Buns).
If you really get the bug and want to sew your own, here are a few pattern links:
Jody at Honeyboys (the ones that sell for $$$) has created a home pattern. I have tried it and they work great! Plus, Jody has also created a list-serv to ask questions while sewing the diapers.
For a fitted diaper pattern, visit www.poopockets.com.
For a good tutorial on making your own diapers, see www.diapersewing.com.
And if you are more interested in a bargain, check out these swap/fsot boards. Some are moms who bought a diaper that did not work for their child; others are wahms who are trying to drum up business by selling on these swap boards.
Amity’s World at www.amitysworld.com has a very popular swap board.
Or visit the swap boards on Oxygen.com. Look for the swap meet board under Freebies & Bargains.
If you are seriously considering cloth, you might want to consider joining a cloth diaper board for a while. I found that many of the mothers were able to give me great suggestions and very useful insights. I can recommend a few sites if you want.
Here are a couple of useful links for more information on the cloth diaper scene.
Finally, I have not bothered to describe all of the types of diapers that are available (trust me--there are a lot) but I would be happy to answer any questions you have. Post to me on the message board and I will be happy to email you or call you and answer any of your questions in detail.
