Swaddlebees?!

Postby flutterby » Thu Aug 21, 2008 8:05 am

Well I just received my Swaddlebees, they are most certainly not OV, they seem to be just normal terry and hemp, I'm a little confused, as I didn't know swaddlebees did any other fitteds? Anyone know what they are? Think I'm going to sell them, I'll get more for them whilst they're new, and can list them on ebay, unless anyone here wants them?? Anyway, my main question is what are they?

Where did you get them from? Sounds like they could be these ones http://www.babykind.co.uk/swaddlebeesovpockets.htm which can be terry and hemp combo. I would send them back and get what you ordered.

I found out what they are, unfortunately silly me, did not read the listing properly on ebay, it actually say cotton terry and hemp, they were from the US, don't think you can get them here, hence me not knowing what they are! http://www.diaperware.com/productpage/s ... itteds.htm

Didn't know they did plain terry and hemp. Disapponting for you but at least the listing was right.

Exactly, I've put them on ebay, along with 2 fuzzis and 2 QFs that people didnt want to buy here, so will get some swaddlebee OV OS when they're sold, yum yum!!

I've actually tried both (OV and organic terry), and I prefer the terry! I've gotten both from the States. Believe it or not, the terry dipes I have have actually stayed softer than the velour (or at least as soft)... velour never seems to live up to its early promise. They're a little bulkier, but consequently a little more absorbent, and they're more generously cut, so they fit waaaaay longer. I had a medium in each style, and I had to stop using the OV one on dd about 6 weeks ago but she still fits into the terry, and not even on the last set of snaps. Her large OV nappies are already looking pretty snug (she's 9 months), but there's a huuuuge amount of room in the terries, so I'm sure they'll last her til potty training.

I'll have a blue medium organic terry to sell in the not too distant future, if anyone's tempted now. :mrgreen: I think they're lovely!
