New at Bum Covered Diapers: Featured WAHM products

Are you a WAHM that lives in the United States and runs a small business?  Are you looking for more places to sell your handmade or handsewn baby and toddler products? If I've peaked your interest, keep reading to find out how we might help you!

As our business and facebook fan base has grown, I have had the pleasure of seeing some excellent products sold by other WAHM's like myself.  Because I am a full-time graduate student with another part-time job outside of the diaper business I have little time left for sewing or crafting.  However, I would love to offer more variety of handmade products like wool dryer balls, longies and covers, baby clothes, doll clothes and toys  to our customers.  The solution I have come up with will hopefully satisfy myself, customers, and other retailers.

I have decided to open another product category listing on our web store entitled "Featured Handmade WAHM Items."  Products in this category will be listed for only a limited time and will offer special sales for the customers at Bum Covered Diapers.  Small WAHM retailers will be able to apply to feature their products for 1-2 months in this category.  There will be no fee to retailers for listing items in this category.  All I ask is that you offer the items at a discount to our customers and that you take care of shipping your items.  

Are you interested in being featured?  Do you have questions?  Send me an email at to apply or to get more information.

Sales's March Madness!

Sorry I've been a little absent lately from the blogging world.  I promise there is another fun post in the works.  In the meantime, I just had to spread the word about some great sales happening right now at Bum Covered Diapers!

Bum Genius

Artist Series 4.0 One Size diapers are on sale all of March:  buy 2 for $33.99 or buy 5 for $76.99

Regular 4.0 One Size diapers are on sale March 17-20:  15% off individual diapers and packages

Save 10% on any AppleCheeks products you purchase from now until April 14th!  We just restocked and have a full line of envelope covers, inserts, flushable liners, storage sacs, and swim diapers.

Planet Wise

Save 15% off your entire order in March or April if you include any Planet Wise products in your purchase!  For this discount, you must use code PW15CDC  (Have I mentioned that our most recent shipment included some super cute reusable sandwich bags?)

 Bum Covered Diapers

For our own handmade items, I also want to make sure to mention that the price of our fitted diaper is going up in April.  Currently you can build your own fitted for as little as $6.00 (price range from $6-$9, depending on soaker and lining materials).  Now that we have perfected our design, prices will most likely raise to a starting cost of about $9.00 and range up to $13 for the most "fancy" version.  We're pretty proud that our "fancy" fitted diaper built with a microfiber soaker and microfleece liner has been rated an A+ and is on the list of best overnight diapers at Biehl Adventures.  Click the link to read her list of nighttime diapering solutions.

Also, this Saturday (March 19) will be another one-day sale for us as we host our first diaper party.  Online customers can also reap the benefits of the party on that day.  

Happy shopping, and enjoy the madness of March!
