I really hope they're just older! I'm doing diaper laundry today, so I'll see if the color lightens!

It will lighten with time- like 50 washes - at least that's been my experience.

Re: Fake BGE?

FWIW - I don't think it's a fake. I've had some with darker interiors. I don't think these are the organics though as, if I'm not mistaken, they only had h/l closure for the first while.

Re: Fake BGE?

I really don't think they are fake. I had a whole stash of organics when they first came out and used them on my now 5 yo. They had darker fabric on the inside, definitely not white. I thought it was wierd the first time I got a white one. Also, none of mine had that second tag in them either. I really wouldn't worry about it but if it is bothering you that much I would send an email to CB asking if the tags look ok before jumping to filing INAD with ebay.

Looks like a NWOT BG organic (before elemental) to me. My first ones looked exactly like that

Why do you think these are not NWOT?

Yes, they do look very similar to the old organics. Are the diapers 2 different sizes? That's an easy way to tell because I swear they made them larger as 4.0, but who knows I might be confused! Though I swear it b/c I remember being relieved the 4.0 would fit my oldest.

Yep. Washing and sunning noticeably lightens the fabric over time.

I bought organic seconds at the cotton babies store several years back, maybe 3? and they were more that color and have no cotton babies tag, only the bum genius one.
