A Safe Place to Buy Used Cloth Diapers

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

There are a number of different venues available for you to purchase used cloth diapers.

All of these require you to take a sometimes substantial risk.  You don’t know the buyer, you don’t know the quality, you don’t know if the pictures are even current or real and the search is often cumbersome finding what you’re looking for.

Many online cloth diaper stores offer a small used section but what’s really needed in the industry is a site dedicated just to the sale of used cloth diapers…

In August 2010, re-diaper.com was launched.  I innocently stumbled upon re-diaper while visiting diaperswappers.  I saw a small ad that caught my eye, it seemed interesting to see an ad for a used cloth diaper site on a used cloth diaper site.  Once I clicked I was so happy.

Happy not necessarily for myself but for the hundreds and thousands of families this site will help.  I am always asked where someone can purchase used diapers that isn’t so confusing.

The whole concept of re-diaper is fabulous.  I love that you can go to one store and shop for all different kinds of diapers in a clean, organized layout.  I love that all the products are inspected by one mom (creating a baseline for all ratings) and that the selection is varied.

But, buying the used inventory isn’t the only option available to you on re-diaper.com.  You can also join The Fluff Club and trade in your stash for diapers that will work for you!

This is an excellent opportunity when sizing up or for those times when you mess up and buy an entire stash of one diaper…that ends up not working for your child!

Re-diaper isn’t just in the business of selling and trading.  They have a mission to help ALL families cloth diaper.  Whether this be through their limited space Diaper Loan Program or through donations to The Cloth Diaper Foundation.

If you have diapers sitting around that you aren’t using and aren’t wanting to go through the trouble of selling, you can donate them to re-diaper.com to sell to other families and re-diaper will in turn donate all profits to The Cloth Diaper Foundation.

Re-diaper alleviates the need to check feedback.  No longer will you hold your breath waiting to see if you’ll actually get your diapers.  You may call me cynical and untrusting but I’ve been lied to and I’ve been scammed.  When you’re on a tight budget, you especially feel the pain when you discover that you’ve been had.

I welcome with open, supporting arms Re-diaper.com to the cloth diaper community.  I pray they will be a blessing to you.

    I love Re-Diaper.com! Though I haven’t actually gotten to use the products yet (I’m due in 6 weeks), I have had 2 great experiences ordering from this site. As a newbie to the cloth diapering world, I found myself overwhelmed at some of the sites I visited. Re-Diaper.com is very simple to navigate and understand. I feel like Kristin’s prices are fair, and the ratings she places on the condition of the products have been accurate. Another great thing is that she offers FREE shipping on any order over $50. I would highly recommend Re-Diaper.com to anyone!

    That site is perfect! So much easier than looking through the other sites, I find my style, brand and the prices are fantastic! Thanks so much! I just wish they had a section for high end prefolds, I’m trying to find some bamboo prefolds to try with out spending an arm and leg.

    We offer cloth diaper swaps at our B&M stores in Canada — they are a huge hit! Customers come and sell their used diapers, they pocket 100% of the cash if they do it themselves (it’s a 1-hour affair, it is fast and furious!), if they want ot consign through us, they still get 100% of the proceeds, but as store credit (great if they need to switch systems, or buy the next size up). Doing in in-person enables buyers to look at the diapers IRL, and we help both buyers and sellers with price questions… We’ve been holding swaps for over a year now, I figured if we’re going to sell customer on the idea of selling used diapers to save $$$, we should put our money where our mouth is!

    Hi Mamas – Thanks for your comments and thoughts about Re-Diaper.com and buying used cloth diapers. You all are right that Craigslist and Diaperswappers can be great places to find super bargains for diapers! But there is a lot of work that is involved using those sites – scouring for the right diaper, meeting up with people, posting and bumping, etc… I have used them myself to great success AND a few scams and bad diapers. Re-Diaper.com is not going to be for everyone for sure, but…. if you want a guaranteed safe transaction, guarantee on the quality of your diapers, a quick and easy format to see what’s on stock, quick and easy quote for selling diapers, and an easy way to trade then Re-Diaper.com might be just what you are looking for! I was hoping to simplify the search for quality used diapers when I created the site. Hope you all like it and happy cloth diapering!

      I could not agree more with Kristin here that it is hassle free. I have a lot to do in my busy ife with 5 kids and a daycare…I like getting a fair price for my barley loved diapers and not having to go through a ton of work to get it. If I had to jump through hoops I would just rather give them away, ya know. (and now I can pay for my hand knit longies a local lady is making me :) )

      Plus anywhere that you can get Goodmama’s in good shape for $15 each and no worry is a winner in my book.

      I think this site is GENIUS and I love it!

    While I DID successfully sell/trade my entire pocket stash on diaperswappers, I totally wish I had found this beforehand.

    I just wanted to add for those moms who are not in the US that I had excellent luck on Craigslist! I live in Costa Rica and through Craigslist I was able to find someone local selling off an incredible stash – including three absolutely beautiful handmade wool diapers, which I’m sure would have fetched as much alone as I paid for the entire stash! I know I lucked out, but I highly recommend checking your local Craigslist because that way you can meet with the person and see the items before you make the exchange. I’ve been using the site since I lived in Louisville, KY and I’ve bought and sold everything from exercise equipment to antique cameras, all in face-to-face transactions.

    I love Re-Diaper! Kristin is great to work with and the diapers I received were in excellent condition. I joined the fluff club for one month to try it out and I was able to trade 6 diapers as well as purchase a few different types that I had wanted to try but didn’t want to pay full price for.
    I would definitely recommend using Re-Diaper if you’re looking to trade or add to your stash. I haven’t actually sold anything to Kristin but the prices that she pays are listed on her website and seem reasonable.

    I have seen that site, and I think it’s a great idea… still I LOVE diaperswappers… I’ve gotten so much stuff from mamas on that site, and never had a problem. You can get GREAT deals on sites like the others mentioned above, plus you can negotiate with mamas when you order from them… with re-diaper, the price is set… and although a still a good deal, I’d rather pay less. ;) Diaperswappers has mods to deal with negative situations plus you can file with paypal if something goes wrong, so you’re usually safe buying from there as well. If you want an absolutely no risk situation though, re-diaper sounds like a good choice.

      Paypal couldn’t do anything to recover my $100+ transaction. A lot of mamas were burned by this scammer.

    This would be an excellent place for grandma’s and other extended family members to buy cloth diapers to have on hand for little visitors :) Saves time and money! It should be relatively easy to buy this way, just like buying clothing you would just need sizes and style preferences.
