    Posted: 14 Dec 2011 at 12:26am

I decided to gamble and purchaed a grab bag last week and it arrived yesterday. For $47.81 I received:

3 Fuzzibunz: one made in Turkey and two made in China...what was the controversy on that again?
1 Charlie Banana
2 Bottom Bumpers AIOs
and I added a Grovia shell for 10 bucks.
I have the feeling I got jacked.  What do you think?  Has anyone every used Bottombumpers? Did you like them?

47.81 for 6 diapers is $7.97 each. So, that sounds like you did pretty good to me!

I have not used bottom bumpers, but I know a lot of mama's rave about them. They are usually $20/each so 2 + all the others seems like a great deal to me!

Were all the diapers new?  If so that is a great deal.  Even if they are gently used $7.97 each is still a really good deal.  That is 50% less than retail.  I love my FB

I can't recall hearing anything but great things about bottom bumpers! And those things are crazy expensive. I'd bet if you don't like them you could even resell them and recoup most of what you spent. Thumbs Up

I've heard great things about Bottombumpers and you got them at a fantastic price. I think you got a great deal.

Yes they were all new. I guess I hadn't heard great things about FB as of late. I feel better thanks everyone!

I have a decent stash of FB for the baby, the ones that were made in China and some in Turkey. I really like them, too. I had a problem with the slackening of elastics in one out of probably 12 diapers, and FuzziBunz replaced it and then some. The other brands I have not tried, but I have been hearing raves about Charlie Banana from people who use pockets.

The 2 bottom bumpers alone would be a bit over $40.  Nice deal!

I didn't read all the posts, but I really like my bottoms bumpers. They aren't a night time diapers but they wash well, and are an excellent day time AIO, very absorbent.

That was a great deal.  AIOs are usually $20-$25 each.
