Re: So disappointed in my BumGenius seconds!!!

yup... what they said...

I had laundry tabs like that and was uber disappointed just as you.. but after a few washes they softened right up and cause not even the slightest irritation on DD. Don't give up on them yet! (or give up and rip them out, still usable!)

I agree that they soften up a lot... I also make sure I tuck the front sides around my little girl before I fasten them and that actually covers most of the tab so it doesn't even touch her skin.

my phone thinks it's smart. pardon the typos.

I'd try one or two on your baby and if they cause a problem then just remove them.

I woud not remove them they are there for a reason I may cover them up until they get softer. You can laid a small fleece strip on top of them so they dont irritate your baby skin

Re: So disappointed in my BumGenius seconds!!!

Yea, that is just how they make them now. Most of my stash is the old style fabric laundry tabs and they just don't work that well. That's why they changed them over to the new loop style laundry tabs. All the newer ones that I have ordered have the loop laundry tabs and they really do work much better. They do soften up and it really doesn't bother my ds at all. They really are fantastic diapers. If it bothers you so much, follow some of the pp's sugestions and take them off or cover them up when you use them.

If you don't want them I will gladly take them off your hands, lol. However, I bet once you start using them they will be great

Re: So disappointed in my BumGenius seconds!!!

The comments on the listing about the scratchy laundry tabs is why I didn't buy any.
