Red face Have the Boingo problems been resolved?

Remember the ripping and tearing of the boingos? Have those problems been resolved? I'd like to order some but I'm afraid of running into those problems.

Re: Have the Boingo problems been resolved?

I don't know if they have yet but I read on a post a few days ago that they were coming out with a new silicone version soon. Maybe someone who knows more will chime in for you soon...

Re: Have the Boingo problems been resolved?

I've also read that it happened to less than 5%, which IMHO is well withing a reasonable margin of error in production, and they were replaced readily. I would be confident buying again if I ever used what I have, but I have not been using my PFs or flats much with DS like I did with DD.

my original boingos did not rip. The new ones are made of a completely different material, silicone, which is much stronger.

Re: Have the Boingo problems been resolved?

What were the old ones made of? I have a pair of what I presume are old ones - but not used yet since baby isn't here yet. It seems somewhat like silicone - but perhaps less strechy.
