I think there the best thing out there in terms of quality, however they are charging too much considering we are in this global recession, what do you think?

:bunny:perhaps you meant to say "Bambinos Too Expensive?" in the title of your thread?

So now for the rest of this thread those that have had even a modicum of business economics in college will rant on about the supply and demand ratio, (WE are the demand side of this equation). Next they'll drivel on about cost to manufacture and distribute the product, et-cetera, et-cetera, et-cetera.

Then ones who live in L.A. that make $100 per hour will talk of relatives who sew for a living and they'll ask you if you could live on less than $40 per hour? (I live on $1237 a month, you do the math).

Those that Just Love Bambinos will go on and on about how no other diaper comes close and that they would buy Bambinos before buying food for their family or at least purchasing a decent micro-brew. So just see if it isn't so. - The Cynical Diapered Rabbit:bunny:

There actually not that much more expensive than say Abena X-Plus or whatever. That is if you got a somewhat decent job. I live on $10/hr working random hours so I get paid a random amount every two weeks. Try living on $300 to $700 every two weeks and not knowing how much you're gonna get paid. Try paying for a car payment, insurance, rent, etc on something you don't really know and I still have left over cash to uy my diapers and 5 WoW accounts.

I'm with Bryce on this one. Bambinos are no more pricey than any of the other "super absorbant" diapers... like Dry 24/7, Abri X-plus, Molicare Super Plus, or Secure X-plus.

Besides, Bambinos are without a doubt the most comfortable diaper I have ever worn... and they actually lowered their prices a few months ago.

Let's face it, Bambinos are a niche product... and dispite their success they are still only purchased by a minority of folks. Fact of the matter is you are going to pay more for a niche product...

Combine that with the fact that they are made in the USA and imported to the UK will make them quite expensive... you figure at least $50 a box just to ship them over... and that's if it is done in bulk with a reasonable discount... it all has to be factored in.

I really don't see where you have room to gripe. If I paid to have european Tena Slip Maxis brought over to the US they would be just as expensive.

Though I'm laid off, I typically make around $5,600 a month here in Chicago, and my girl makes $800 a month (until she graduates next year; then she'll make around $4,000 a month).

So no, they don't charge too much. lol

I understand the plight of younger people who typically make less money, but do what I did: suffer with the crappy diapers until you make more money. That's just the way of the world. Do you think it didn't kill me to hear about how awesome Molicares were while I was duct taping Depends to my butt? lol

I think they are expensive. Hell I have found a case of 96 diapers online that are cheaper or cost a little more so I see that as saving money when I go for the other diapers than bambinos.

Joey, I think you really need to think about the qualities you want in a diaper.

For me, the bambino only satisfied one and that was absorbency. For others it failed miserably: crinkle, softness, look, overall babyish appearance.

Try with other brands to find what you want out of a diaper and I'm sure it'll be at the right price, which if I stuck with more bambino's, I'd have made a mistake.

Bambinos are amazing. I'd say they're well worth the price. It takes a swimming pool for them to leak, and they're so adorable to boot.

I just ordered Bambinos Bianco for the first time yesterday. I ordered from B4NS.com in Canada and they just started carrying them. They were quite expensive at about $95 for 48 diapers. Now I found a place in Calgary that sells Abena x-plus case for $55 so for the cost difference they will probably remain my main diaper.

I am looking forward to when they arrive!

I never considered these traits before. Lack of, perhaps.

Bambinos for comfort, absorbency, and a certain amount of discreetness. Durable too, with plastic and tabs that don't rip half-way through the day. Great side leak protection.

Too expensive? Not when it takes two changes of the typical brand in the same time as one bambino will comfortably hold.

For 24/7 use they are my top choice. No worries about leaks at all and that's important piece of mind that is priceless.

I don't think so. At all. Diapers aren't cheap. If you don't need them, and you can't afford them comfortably, then don't buy them.

I'm sleeping in a Bambino tonight as part of a week long crusade through multiple brands. I bought some long ago and liked them, but I never bought more because of the price. I had saved one in my collection, which I recently decided to raid. I think Bambinos may well be my favorite. You get what you pay for...

i am a bambino fan... not too much into the baby print on the front anymore. when you have... its not that big of a deal anymore. however, as a large guy, they are super soft. and the other brand from abuniverse... doesent quite fit me that well. and then adding smell... for extra charge. come on...
on the weekend i put on a bambino and usually sit here all day wetting. to truly enjoy a bambino... wear it till its ready to explode. the soft, and mushy feeling it it... omg... bliss!

I couldn't believe how well these diapers were. From the look and feel, to how much they held and how the stuffing felt when wet. It felt just like a real baby diaper. I completely belive they are worth the price

The way I see it is that, yes they are expensive for what they are.

That could just be me as I live in the UK, so the only way for me to order some would import at an expensive price or buy from ebay which would probally cost even more.
