Barely used BG starting to look not so great, is it just me?
 
Ok, I have 1 bumGenious and I love it because it fits DD (9 months) and DS (27 months). We haven't had any problems with leaking or wicking, even overnight. But lately it isn't looking so great. It has only been washed 5 times and worn 4 (twice by DD, twice by DS). Already I have had lots of "hanging" thread and the strechy part of the tabs has snags in it. IS it just me??? I don't see how this diaper is supposed to hold up for both DD and DS to use it if is already doing this. Did I do something wrong? I wash it with the rest of my dipes, cold prewash with 1/2 cup baking soda, hot wash with 1/2 scoop allen's, cold rinse w/1 cup vinegar. Is anyone else having this happen to their bumGenious?

I bought four and had two that had problems like that. Contact Cotton Babies. They exchanged mine, no problem.

Yeah, I already exchanged one once. But the second one has been worn twice and the velcro tab is already starting to fray and is hard to grab now. It's already a $20 diaper with the additional return shipping costs. I'm not willing to up the price again. :cry:

That said, I also love the fit.

I have 13. I have two (one is an older style...the only older style I have) where I've noticed the velcro tab starting to come apart. I have a couple where the rise snaps don't snap as tight as I'd like (they tend to come undone while I put the dipe on DS. There are snags in the stretchy part pretty much across the board but they are pretty minor, are in the inside, and are just cosmetic in nature...also, the new ones are better then the old one about it. In general, though, they're in pretty good shape.

Bummer! I have 3 with one more on the way and mone are all holding up great. My white one is an older style, too, and it's fine, just the normal pilling ny the stretchy tabs. Call CottonBabies and ask them about an exchange. It shouldn't be doing that. I LOVE my BG!'s and I'd be so sad if mine were already breaking down.

My old style BG definitely looks like it's been run over, but my new style BGs still look good. The pulls on the stretchy tabs are from the Aplix, sometimes I accidentally snag it and I hate it when that happens! But I've washed mine with all my other dipes. I think I prefer snaps right now, but I wouldn't trade my BGs for anything!

I would call the company. Some diapers that go out are maybe from a bad batch. Also do you have a top loader washer. They are a bit harsher on diapers then front loaders.

Mine are holding up great - but I do a warm water wash and dry them low for 15 min before hang-drying. Cottonbabies is great about returns ...

Good luck!
