BumGenious Tab issues?

I was thinking of getting some BumGenious but have read several posts about tabs fraying with these. I would love to have them if they work, I plan to stuf them with hemp prefolds. Please share your bumGenious experience with me.

Re: BumGenious Tab issues?

I had some for a lil while, didn't use them often, so I can't really be a judge I guess, but from the few washes we had, there were no probs.
The only thing I'd think right now is that they might be too narrow for a PF...

I don't think a prefold would fit in them very well at all.

Re: BumGenious Tab issues?

we used ours with a premium sized prefold with no issues

I was one of the posters with a tab fraying issue, that said... I have heard that she yet again improved the design. I love the fact that they keep making them better. If you order directly from cotton babies you should get one of the new run ones with reinforced tabs and dual crossover tabs (someone here posted info about it)

I will order more despite my tab fraying issue because a) it's an easy fix and cottonbabies would replace it if I would send it back to them, b)they are just awesome diapers

I have even sold my best friend on them as well... now we just have to find a way to buy them haha

I think that was my post. See here: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...ad.php?t=35951

The picts of the new fleece-lined BGs with the reinforced tab style is in that post. Looks like there ain't no way these will fray!

So far, so good. The fleece is still nice and soft.

Is Cotton Babies replacing dipes with frayed tabs like they did with other issues? I have a few that are fraying bad.
