All I know is I wish I'd written something this controversial/disputed/response-triggering when I was blogging! Haha.

Re: How to Ruin a Cloth Diaper - blog

The pocket was rarely used as I hated the fit and the Lil'Joey was hardly used since my babies grow super fast.

I have had way over 100 diapers come through my stash and besides an ALVA, these are the only diapers that have had the elastic and the laminate die on them with very minimal use. My BG 2.0s have been through the wringer and the PUL is still good and the elastic, although quite relaxed, is still stretchy.
Me too! The only 2 kangacare diapers I have ever owned, one completely delaminated in a matter of months, and both diapers' elastic was shot in 6 months. Meanwhile, I was washing them right along with my $5 sunbabys and those held up perfectly for over a year and looked like new when I sold them

Yeah, that is what my diaper looked like when it delaminated, and was even that same print.

I don't take much stock in most of this info. I have been cloth diapering for the better part of 6 years, and have used everything from prefolds to fitteds, to pockets, to AIO's. I've never changed my wash routine (Tide on hot with bleach, hot dry) and these were pretty much the only brand I've had issues with. Seems more like a CYA post than anything.
