My diaper is better than yours *vent not brag* PIC OF DIPE ON PG12

So I took Syrus to the park up the road and he was crawling around on the grass playing with his toys and another mom comes in and, since her baby is around Syrus’ age, she put her daughter down next to him. I was like 5 feet away, if that far, and she came over to me to watch them interact. It was really cute, truly it was, but then I noticed her daughter had fleece shorties and I asked “is she cloth diapered?” and the lady, I’ll call her Mary, looked at me shocked and said “why yes, she is, how did you know?” and I told her that Syrus is too. Upon hearing this she looks at him more closely and realizes his camo “shorts” are really a camo dipe and she goes “oh, what kind of diaper is that, it’s darling!” I said “oh, it’s home-made.” Now I would take that to mean that the diaper was made at home, but Mary looks at me puzzled and said “I’ve never heard of that company, are they any good?” I stifled my laughter and explain that I make all his diapers and showed her the others in the diaper bag. She looks at me even more confused and says “why do you make them? don’t you know Good Mama’s are the best?” Now it was my turn for a puzzled look. I asked “are all ur DD dipes good mama’s?” and Mary, thinking she was sounding smart I guess, said “yes, and I think every CD’ing mom should have a whole stash of GM’s”. I just let that roll off my shoulder and we walked over to the kids to make sure there weren’t any bugs on them and as we sat down I said “well I prefer my home made ones, though I haven’t tried anything besides them and prefolds, but they haven’t leaked yet :goodvibes: ” and Mary says “well they will GM’s are just better” I was about to pick up Syrus and leave, but instead I, trying to play nice, said “well that may be the case for you, but some diapers just don’t work for some babies” and Mary, in all her glory, turns and says “well you sound a little jealous that my diapers are better than yours”. At this point I want to smack her, but I looked down at the kids and laughed and said “well if GM’s are so great, why did ur DD just take hers off” :giggle2: . Mary looks at me all annoyed and says “well it could just have easily been your son to take off his diaper” and I know she’s right, but then she decides to just put a new dipe on her DD and she pulls disposable wipes out of her diaper bag and I said “wait, you CD, but with disposable wipes???” and she said “well yeah, how do you clean him, ur hand” and I said “no, cloth wipes with a spray bottle of water (with a drop of soap)” and Mary looked at me like I was from Mars and says “well that’s gross, now you have poop on 2 things to wash” I really did want to smack her, but as she was closing up her DD dipe she says to me “Face it, GM’s are just better, plus, they are waaaaaaaaaaay prettier than the thing on your son”. I didn’t let her get the last word in though. As I picked up Syrus to leave I said “well yours may cost more, but at least his are made with love.”

Have any of you ever encountered such narrow minded stupidity??? I know that GM’s are supposed to be amazing, but they are waaaaaaaaay too pricey for me. I also know that some CDing mama’s do use disposable wipes, but this lady had no idea cloth wipes even existed.

PS~ I am not knocking GM’s, that lady was just getting on my last nerve

This thread became much more interesting after GMlovah! created her account.  And much more amusing too. Kudos to you, GMlovah! Too bad she’s been banned for trolling.

Re: My diaper is better than yours *vent not brag* PIC OF DIPE ON PG12

OMG! That was you at the park???
How embarassing for me to be outed like this. But, you know… GM’s are da’ bomb, yo. SRSLY. For realz.

Oh, and I know EXACTLY who you are talking about in the bathroom at ‘da Walmarts. She confronted me TOO! Except she wasn’t so friendly and didn’t offer to “quickly” go buy me some sposies. She grabbed my huge, lucious stack of GM’s out of my Petunia Picklebottom bag, and told me that I was a TERRIBLE mother for using cloth diapers. Then she goes into this outrageous story about how I am hurting the economy because Proctor & Gamble and Kimberly Clark, like, have employees that have families to feed. And I’m all like “Seriously, lady? I spent like a gazillion bucks on those diapers! I could feed a small third world nation on what those cost!” And then she SNIFFED my diapers, and said “Well, at least they seem clean, I’ve seen some real smelly ones in this here bathroom” (I think she must have saw you first, yk?) And I was all like, “Um okay…well I AM a GoodMama, so my dipes are clean”.
With that she sneered at me, the most evil sneer. And she had a bit of puppy fur stuck in her teeth…so I knew I was messing with a quite menacing CD hater. Then I noticed that my baby (she’s 9 mos BTW) had crawled away during this whole convo- would you believe she was under a stall, practicing her advanced calculus on the toilet paper? I won’t tell you WHAT she was writing with *shudder* but yeah…you noticed her mad dexterious skillz when she got that diaper off. Totally MENSA material. Or stripper or both! teehee

So, anyways. It was nice meeting you- we should plan a playdate. Hey maybe we could show each other our stash, make sure you bring your hoemade dipes. I really thought they were so…well, industrious. Good on you. Sorry if I seemed snobby. TOTALLY not my intention. I was still just a little rattled from my experience in the WM bathroom earlier in the day. I hope I never run into HER again!
She was like…pathological, or something!
Anywho! Shoot me a PM, my friend! We can get together and talk “fluff”!!!!!!!

No, this is totally a true story. I’m the “snobby” Goodmama that she met at the park. I posted the whole story, feel free to search my posts.

And, anyways…you guys who say I am horrible don’t even know me in real life!!!!!!!!! Maybe lay off a little bit!!!!!!!!! Just because I can buy whatever I want whenever I want and have a baby with higher than average intelligence, does not mean I am not a GOODMAMA!

I am sensing some serious jealousy here.

PS thanks to those of you who sent me the pm’s in support . Still waiting for Ashley to pm me though.

I saw a sig from a mama the other day that said she worked out of home and was a AP mama, can you do both? I saw it and it caught my attention. Can you believe in attachment parenting and work full time out of the home? Just wondering what the thoughts are from other AP moms

Re: Attn: AP mamas
I think this is a ridiculous statement. Can you parent your children and work outside the home?! For many of us, staying home is not an option. My daughter attends daycare with a very gentle likeminded Mama while I am working or at class and every other waking hour– we are together. Quantity DOES NOT equal quality time with your children.

YES. Just because I have to work outside the home to feed us and keep our house doesn’t mean I don’t parent lovingly attached-ly(?:giggle:) when I am home. I bf on demand, babywear, cosleep, etc, when I am home, and pump at work. Dh and I work opposite shifts so he watches them while I’m away, and while he can’t quite bf himself :giggle: he does a pretty good job, too.

Absolutely. AP is a mindset, not a checklist.
Treehugger 07-26-2008 10:39 AM

Re: Attn: AP mamas
I sort of understand what you are saying. I think of AP as constantly wearing the baby throughout the day, breastfeeding on demand, co-sleeping, etc. So I understand where you are coming from. I think moms that work outside of the home are still wonderful parents. I guess it depends ones definition of AP.

BTW I don’t think she was saying that moms who work outside of the home are bad or that they can’t parent lovingly.

ambersrose 07-26-2008 10:43 AM

Re: Attn: AP mamas
It is an honest question and one that a lot of AP parents probably ask themselves. The OP didnt say anything about being a “good” parent or a “loving” parent because you can be good and loving and not AP, she just was asking if working away from your child would fall into the AP standards. In my opinion it does not in a strict sense. I think very few of us can follow all the AP rules to a tee especially as our children get older, as parents we do the best we can and take what we can from what ever methods we favor.
JonsMommy 07-26-2008 11:55 AM

Re: Attn: AP mamas
In a family where the father works and the mother stays home, do you think that the father can practice AP when he is home? Dr Sears himself works, so can you consider him AP? Why is the standard different for a woman?

Anyway I don’t consider myself AP because there are parts of it that haven’t worked for us, but I don’t see why someone couldn’t be AP and WOH.

yep. i FF and still consider myself an AP parent so why can’t a working mama be AP? to me, its parenting from the heart and doing whats best for you and your child, therefore making them feel as secure as possible. :thumbsup:

Re: Attn: AP mamas
That is the most rude and insulting thing I have ever heard. I work, not by choice, but because I need to provide a place to live and food to eat for my child. I also still bf him at 17mos, bw him every d*mn place, gently discipline/parent, and my son is more attached to me than I could have ever dreamed possible. And I am more attached to him than I could have ever dreamed possible. I’m sorry that some of us aren’t independently wealthy, don’t have a dh with an amazingly good paying job, or whatever the h*ll else allows some people to be able to SAH, but just because I work doesn’t mean I love my child less. How dare you suggest otherwise.
mamakaty 07-26-2008 05:20 PM

Re: Attn: AP mamas
AP is an approach, rather than a strict set of rules THis is from the Dr. Sears site. I wholeheartedly agree. I would also like to c&p this:

Attachment parenting implies first opening your mind and heart to the individual needs of your baby, and eventually you will develop the wisdom on how to make on-the-spot decisions on what works best for both you and your baby. Do the best you can with the resources you have – that’s all your child will ever expect of you.

I actually don’t usually call myself AP, but I believe and follow most of the principles. But I think we should all have that open mind and heart mentioned above. I worked full time after ds#1 was born, and I don’t think that affected our attached-ness one bit!!

Re: Attn: AP mamas
I work FT, i did FF, I used disp diapers for a year, i only wore my baby in a snuggli sometimes, i never cosleep… some would say i am not AP at all, but I consider myself VERY attached to my child. I would die for him.

without reading everyone’s responses that’s the biggest insult i’ve heard in a LONG while

we do a lot of ‘ap’ practices and mindsets if that’s what you call them. I almost despise the use of certain terms. because some of us WOH does that mean we wouldn’t dare be able to meet the needs of our LOs and HEAVEN FORBID THEY WOULDN”T BE ATTACHED TO US????? GIVE ME A FREAKING BREAK I CAN”T BELIEVE I READ THAT!!!!

there’s not one thing in those 8 principles that can not be accomplished whether you are at home or not. that’s pretty darn hurtful

I wasn’t aware that you needed to spend 24 hours a day with your child to practice attachment parenting. As someone else pointed out, Dr. Sears himself realizes that not every parent can do ever single AP thing.

I thought attachment parenting was “how” you raised your child (meaning the methods you employed and philosophy you followed) not when/how often. I BF and babywear (we chose not to co-sleep because DH is a very heavy/thrashy sleeper and we felt it wouldn’t be safe). DS is in his sling whenever I’m home… we baby dance and I nurse on demand. If I’m at work DH supplies milk on demand.

My husband is a SAHD, but even if he weren’t we would still be AP/PET parents. Since my husband can’t BF does that mean he can’t attachment parent?

I think you owe a lot of mamas an apology… and you might want to consider rewording your post, because whether you intended to or not it comes off as belittling and insulting.

DH and I consider ourselves lucky that I make enough for him to stay home… not everyone has that option. People are doing the best they can and trying to raise their children in the best way possible. AP is not a rigid doctrine, but rather a positive philosophy on child-rearing.

I think Weezy summed it up!

princemelissas 07-27-2008 01:21 PM

Re: Attn: AP mamas
This is one thing that bothers me about DS sometimes, people assume I was mean in my question. I agree 100% that you can do both. My mom worked full time and was the best mom ever. However I know from talking to some moms that AP means being with your child 24/7 so I was wondering what other peoples opinions were. I agree the APing is a mindset, and I also believe it means different things to different people.

Ok, this thread wasn’t that interesting or blog worthy until the responses from the store owner were posted… I just had to blog it so people could see what an ass she/he makes of themself…

I was looking for some lap tees to go with my wool for fall….and found some cute ones on etsy. But they want 6.00 to ship one shirt from the US to the US, and one state over I might add, not that that matters…and for Canadians, shipping is 10.00 for one shirt!!!!!!!!

Cute, cute stuff, but there’s just no way I am paying that.

Any recommendations on other places to buy?

Nice….got a reply from the etsy seller.

All I said to her was that her shirts were cute, but that the shipping was outrageous….and this was her reply just now:

Lets see – you joined today and the first thing you do is start complaining. Have you checked recently what it costs to ship stuff.
Everything is shipped by USPS priority mail – perhaps you should talk to them before sending me rude emails.

Yeah, I said that I do the majority of my shopping as a cd’ing mom on HC…but that a friend recommend etsy for lap tees. I mentioned using FCM too….I mean, even shipping in a flat rate envelope is 4.80…and you can get the postman to pick those up, and the envelopes are free!!

I wish I could post the name of the store, just so that nobody buys from them. So annoying.

Wowzers….it continues. Just got a reply to my last email:

Ok $4.60 for shipping (cost at post office) – 40 cents to cover cost of printing label, tape, postage machine rental, etc and $1.00 to cover gas to the post office and back (5.5 miles) and you decide that’s “outrageous”. I think perhaps you might want to check yourself before throwing insults around.
If you don’t want to buy my stuff that’s great with me – however if you just want to try and through your weight around, I suggest going somewhere else. Check my feedback – no one else seems to be complaining and they are certainly are buying. Did I not clearly state my shipping and handling charges? – I think I did – you could have just looked for another store – but no, you decided to insult me. Just because you are have a bad day is no reason to try and take it out on everyone else, I have noticed that the people that complain the most, buy the least, so I guess you are no great loss.

I’ll be watching your store to see what you make – so far you just seem to be a consumer.

Have a better one.

I’m not going to say anything else to this person.

I am just going to spread the word far and wide…not to shop there. I wonder if there’s anyway to complain to the person that runs etsy? Or if that would even matter at all.

I’m done with this idiot.

Okay…so I just had someone else contact her to ask if she would ship first class, to save on shipping, and this was the reply on that one:

Sure – if you go out and buy the packing supplies and bring them around here + line up at the post office to have it weighed – I’d be happy to send it first class – I doubt you would want is sent in a tatty old envelope – otherwise my shipping and handling charge is $6.00 – as stated. I guess I could always increase my prices to $23 and include free shipping – that would still be less than the stores I sell to, charge for my stuff.

Cheers

This is just BAD CS. And I agree with a lot of the posters, word gets around… so the real question is… who knows who this store is?

So what the hell? Cotton Babies can send out poop-stained Bum Genius diapers and call them seconds now? We aren’t talking a mix up with one mom, there were at least 5 on the thread this AM before it was pulled…

Oh hell no; I would be PISSED if it were me. I went through and checked the “Terms” that these moms agreed to, and NOWHERE was it disclosed that they would be receiving used diapers. Who in their right mind would pay $12+ for used seconds? I also had 2 moms email me their order confirmations and such. Used was not disclosed on those either.

Here are the “Terms” Taken from Cotton Babies Web Site Yesterday: http://www.cottonbabies.com/index.php?cPath=51

Clearance

By purchasing products from this category, you agree to the following terms (please read):

  • You acknowledge that you are purchasing second quality merchandise that is non-returnable and not covered by any warranty.
  • To be fair to all customers, there is a limit of twenty-four total sale diapers (regardless of version purchased) per customer and/or delivery address. Orders for more than twenty-four total sale diapers will be cancelled.
  • Insert is not included.
  • Please be sure that you order exactly what you want. Due to extremely high order volumes, we are unable to accomodate order changes on sale orders.
  • Seconds will sell out very, very quickly so please be prepared to check out immediately.
  • Your sale is guaranteed when you successfully check out AND complete payment for your order using a credit card.
  • We cannot guarantee inventory for PayPal orders during heavy load times on the system. For best results and the fastest possible checkout process, we strongly suggest checking out with a credit card instead of PayPal. If do you happen to choose PayPal as your method of payment, please remember to click that very last button to return to our website for your final order confirmation.

DS Pulled the thread this morning just a bit ago, I didn’t get a chance to grab the last of it or the photos of the used diapers. Cotton Babies was not “outted”. The photos were just of the velcro, no tags etc.

Here is what I got of it before I pulled it. And to the mom that posted the pics, I didn’t get to screen shot those, but YES YOURS ARE USED!!!!

I just got some second quality diapers from a major retailer (please notice how I am not naming any names)….one if them looks as if it has been POOPED IN. Whats the scoop here? Has anyone else received any USED STAINED diapers from any and every major retailer offering seconds recently????

And I know they are used cause the part of said diaper that is used for fastening is very pilly (way more than any of said diaper I have owned for many months) and the laundry tabs are extremely fuzzy. I was not aware of any part of the listing that stated I might receive a POOP STAINED dipe. :yuck:

And they should let you keep those and send you new ones.
That is just horrible.

Just for clarification: you bought a second quality diaper and it came as used?
Or did you buy a repairable diaper? I think those do come as used?

That is just horrible.

Just for clarification: you bought a second quality diaper and it came as used?
Or did you buy a repairable diaper? I think those do come as used?

Nope – I even checked my invoice to be sure that I hadn’t accidentally bought a ‘repairable’ dipe…it was a SECONDS so says the invoice anyway. And ew on the repairable ones too…its one thing to be used…I buy used a lot from here, but I rarely if ever will agree to buy stained. I love the ‘never been pooped in’ listings myself :giggle:

And I know they are used cause the part of said diaper that is used for fastening is very pilly (way more than any of said diaper I have owned for many months) and the laundry tabs are extremely fuzzy. I was not aware of any part of the listing that stated I might receive a POOP STAINED dipe. :yuck:

On two of the eight I ordered the tabs look like that too, though the rest of the diaper looks brand new.

Well that is comforting…maybe it is just rust or something, then, right? Except for the tiny amount of lint in the tabs as well. But I can get past the fuzzy tabs (most of us know I am just going to rip out the aplix and add snaps anyway :giggle: )…

Thats funny. You know I bet if I kept a tally of all the diapers LO poops in, I would find out that I could list some as never been pooped in. He probably wears some diapers but never atually poops in them.

I didnt buy any of the ones that said used but I saw them. Here is what it said … REPAIRABLE: xxxxxxxx One-Size Cloth Diapers

Description: *_These diapers are used._* They exhibit some type of defect (elastic or tab failure). The diapers are usable with repair. We’re putting these out knowing that there are plenty of parents out there who can sew who might appreciate an inexpensive boost to their diaper stash. We hope these can help you!!

I hope the store you bought the diaper from works with you. That is totally unacceptable, even if it were a used diaper. I can’t imagine a major retailer selling it like that.

So gross. So at least 3 people on here bought seconds and got not only used, but also poopy stained diapers?

Even if you did order “repairable” – elastic and snaps are repairable… I wouldn’t really consider poop stains repairable! I would think the stains should be disclosed no matter what. ICK! So sorry, that’s really icky.

I’d be ticked if I got a diaper in that condition, for sure. I bought 10 inserts, though and 2 of the 10 are unmistakeably used – the tags are wrinkled and faded and they’re not soft like brand-new microfiber. And both had huge yellow stains right down the middles. I wasn’t terribly impressed, but I was getting ready to bleach all my inserts anyway, so I tossed them all in with the rest, bleached, washed, and stripped them and hung them outside. No stains left and I feel okay with using them now, but still. Blech.

If you bought the repairable seconds, it did say that they where used. Still an ick about the staining :yuck:

ETA- Didn’t read all the replies before posting. If they weren’t marked as used, I’d be doing return to sender and sending them back on their way.

I got my seconds today and while the diaper was fine the insert was definately used. It had a light stain and the tag was soft and faded and wrinkled like it had been washed several times. I don’t plan to use this insert anyways but still didn’t make me very happy.

I didn’t read the whole post :blush: Yeah, $12 and they weren’t supposed to be used? I’d be pretty darn ticked. Even $8.50 I would be, I hate stains :giggle:

I hope everything works out and you don’t have to spend the $$ to ship them back (IMO they should reimburse that too 😉 ) :hugs:

Thats what I’m thinking – they do have stellar CS so I’m not worried, just peeved a little and wanting to ‘get the word out’ to check ’em over. I’ll make sure I update when they get back to me.

That happened to me, too. Two of mine came as pockets instead of AIO’s, but they are sending the right thing out along with a return envelope to send the wrong ones back.

That happened the last time I bought at one of their seconds sales, too.


Got an email today with a rather interesting tale.

Thought you might find this interesting (but I could be wrong)

I had a transaction with a mama where she used HER mother’s paypal account without asking. I get an email from the mother asking what the transaction was for because her daughter is using her paypal account without permission.

So I PM’d a mod asking if I leave feedback and Harmony96 told me that I don’t (even though money exchanged hands) because the buyer obviously is having buyers remorse. I asked her why since she STOLE money from a family member to pay for a diaper and shouldn’t other mama’s know especially if she’s done this to other mamas. I haven’t heard back from her but how insane is it that I’m just supposed to refund the mother (thank GOD I didn’t send the diaper out) and not let anyone know about this other mama.

And, I found a link to the T&F thread:

http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/showthread.php?t=496477

Not quite enough info to play “Guess the Scammer,” but let’s give it a go anyway. 🙂


OK, so this isn’t the first time that DS has pulled pregnancy photos from their site. Apparently it is ok with them to have a nipple covered by a baby’s head but not by a mom’s hand in pregnancy photos.

This happened a few months ago with another mom who emailed us about it. That time we didn’t get a cashe/screenshot. This time we did.

Cowmommy pulled the entire thread, and then pulled the thread where it was reported/talked about.

NICE.
