Resources for Adorable, Affordable Fluff

Since closing Super Stash, many people have contacted me, asking if I still have any inventory they could purchase from me. I actually donated all my remaining inventory to The Rebecca Foundation's Cloth Diaper Closet (www.clothforall.com). However, I'd be happy to tell you where you can still buy some adorable, affordable cloth diapers!

To purchase Alva diapers, go to www.alvababy.com. They also sell on Amazon, but the prices are higher. Their items mostly ship from China (unless you buy from the "USA Section") but shipping is free, and if your order is large, they send it through international express (usually DHL, but sometimes FedEx or a different carrier). I ordered many times during the years I ran my business, and my shipments were only held for customs once - so you probably won't have a problem in that area.

To purchase Kawaii diapers, you could either purchase directly from Kawaii at www.theluvyourbaby.com, or through a retailer (search for one at www.clothdiaperretailers.com ). For the best selection, buying direct is your best option - but shipping will be somewhat pricey unless your order is large.

To purchase CJ's, you can search for an authorized retailer at www.clothdiaperretailers.com - look for one with free shipping, or shop around for the best deal. Some retailers offer free shipping but charge more for their products.

To purchase a diaper sprayer - you can get one from Alva (see above) - or you could purchase one from www.diapersprayer.com. I personally don't recommend buying a generic one from Amazon, simply because they're usually sold through a third-party seller, and the product you receive may be inconsistent with the description.

Other stores carry additional brands that I love but was not able to carry in my store due to lack of space and funding. Some great affordable brands include:

Sweet Pea Diapers (I'm in love with their Newborn AIO and One-Size cover)
Imagine (lots of retailers carry this brand, but it was created by the owner of Nicki's Diapers, who also created Planet Wise, Best Bottom, and the Nicki's Diapers brand)
Nicki's Diapers brand diapers are affordable and darling
Prefolds with Boingos and Covers are another affordable way to go. If you're extra-brave, you can try flats (they're actually not that hard either, especially if you just pad-fold them).

Retailers that I like:

www.nickisdiapers.com - great prices (they don't jack up their prices), freebies, tons of selection :)
www.sweetbottomsbaby.com - free shipping and wonderful customer service
and of course... www.amazon.com - pricing is often a bit higher, but they do have some hard-to-find items, and if you have gift card codes or credit card rewards, you can use it to get some free fluff!
