So, yesterday, I followed through with ordering my cloth diaper covers with a selection of both Bummis Super Whispers in white and 1 print, and 1 Bumkins cover as well as a Bumkins "dirty duds" bag. I ordered the Bumkins and Bag from www.softclothbunz.com which is a site previously unreviewed from Diaper Decision Day, but when it came to DPD - Diaper Purchase Day, I found this option to be better than the others. Bumkins print diaper covers are 14.95, $2 more than Diaper Safari or Babyworks, but there was only $1.71 of shipping and the Dirty Duds bag at 11.95 was $1 less. On the Soft Cloth Bunz site you can select the specific prints you want, whereas on the other sites, they choose from what is available and send it to you. Normally I'm not all that picky, but if I'm making an investment and I have to see it on my kids behind for a few months, I'd like to like it. And...getting to the picture above - when they sent the shipping confirmation, at the end was information about a "Feed Your Stash Friday" contest EVERY Friday on the blog associated with this site. I'm a sucker for freebies and if you win, it's a great way to try out different cloth diaperng options to form a real opinion without breaking the bank. So, if you're interested in cloth diapering, go to Feed Your Stash Friday Blog Contest, read the post, and make a comment on the question. I wish I had known about this earlier in my pregnancy - perhaps I could have won diapers! Perhaps I still can. Either way, if this is something that interests you, check it out.
I did end up purchasing from two different sites - I got the Bummis Super Whisper Wrap from Baby Bunz and Co. They had the Bummis Super Whisper Wrap at a savings of a quarter a piece if you got four or more for a cost of 10.75 each when I got 4 white covers as opposed to 11.00 each if I had gotten them on Soft Cloth Bunz. The print cover was 12.25 for one or 12.00 for 4 or more. I only needed one, but the same item on Soft Cloth Bunz was again a quarter more at 12.50 and if I had gone for the bulk discount, it would have come out to .50 more per cover. Shipping at this site was 6.95, but that was for a bigger order - however, maybe it would have worked out cheaper at Soft Cloth Bunz factoring in the shipping - eh, what's done is done :) In closing, I'm just happy that these items are on the way as I feel like that was one of the last "necessities" still to get. We have GDiapers to try and disposables that others got for us to get us started, but I'd like to use cloth as soon as possible, so I'm happy to have all the pieces in place now.
