Before my son was born....My son is now about 13.5 month old... I did my research... purchased about (20) AIO's... Some Bum Genious 4.0's and Fuzzi Bunz...
I prewashed ALL of them about twice to strip them.. Bought the special detergent and the wet bags... liners... typed up the washing instructions for my front loader washer for DH to help out...
I had that committed thought that "why try out a few to see if I'll like it... Just go all in"...
The diapers were set and ready to go... Then don't you know it.. I must have used it for about 2 weekends when he was about 2 months old and then never touched them since.....

Now they sit in the drawers...
I talked to my DH about using them on Baby #2 (on the way 02.20.14 ish)
Then we both looked at each other .... like "who are we kidding"...

So I think I'm on the verge of selling these practically new AIO diapers... Never poo-ed in...
Anyone have any success selling cloths diapers?

(I'm going to post this on my DDC and Playroom too.. Hopefully I get some insight of what to do with them...)

Advertise them as EUC and describe like you did here. Take pictures. I would try craigslist first if you live in a large metro area but otherwise I'd try diaperswappers, spot's corner, or a FB CD swap group. You need a PayPal account so people can send you money.

Gently used diapers should sell well I'd imagine.

Yep, they actually do sell quite well. I see them posted on Craigslist, Ebay, and many FB Buy/Sell groups. You gave an excellent description above! Bum Genius and Fuzzi Bunz are both very popular brands. I don't know how much you invested in all, but the only thing I would be concerned about is you most likely will not get that amount back. Even though they are barely used, they're still used which means people are going to want a great deal. Still, it's worth the effort rather than them collecting dust!

If you have any Bum Genius Elementals, those should go possibly for more than what you paid, since they changed the design and many people prefer the old design. You can't buy them new anymore so they are more valuable than before.
