seconds?

My first post - ahhh.... I have bought almost my entire stash through here - with one trip to the co-op, one at babycottonbottoms, and another through craigslist....

Anyway...
I saw that one mama has bought seconds of FB. Has anyone else? What do you think of them. $10 is a great price... but not worth it if they don't work.

Input?

Re: seconds?

Yes, the ones from the FB factory store are perfectly functionable. They just have very minor, usually unnoticeable cosmetic flaws.

Re: seconds?

Well, I was going to purchase some FB seconds...I own one already (purchased used) and it's totally fine, but then I heard of some mamas complaining that the seconds they got had long/short elastic issues, making the FBs either too big or too small for the size they got. It would have sucked to end up with FBs that my son couldn't wear, so I decided not to chance it and bought used instead.

Re: seconds?

I totally think they are fine I bought 17 at all at different times BUT I highly recommend it. they are great and if you get one that is not a good fit you could sell it here as new and tell the mommas it is for a chunkier baby!

BTW was I the momma who you saw bought the 2nd? I am always raving about them!

Re: seconds?

I bought some FB seconds and they are great - can't even tell that they are seconds myself. For $10 a piece its a great deal

Re: seconds?

I bought some seconds last month (4) one DID have no snaps on one wing but when I emailed them, they sent me a new one right away, like it arrived within days! One has elastic a bit longer but they all still fit dd really well (i bought petites BTW for my 24# dd)
