*another* Goodmama question, who has had theirs for a year?

So ds is outgrowing his wonderful Crickett's, which means I need to replace them. I'd get more, but DH is adamant that both DS and DD wear the same type diaper, so that means ALL OS (we use all OS anyway, except for about 9 Crickett's and 2 FB I couldn't part with). So I was going to get some GMs (today hopefully!) but wanted to know if anyone has had their GMs for nearly a year or more? How have they held up? Holes in fabric? Elastic wearing out? I use mostly MEOS and a few Cuddlebuns and Pampered Cheeks. PC I can't really get anymore and MEOS (while I LOVE them) are huge on a nb (we ARE having more kiddos), but the GM seem not *so* huge. I saw the other threads about GMs and their snap/serging/cs issues, so these have all been answering some questions I had, save this one. TIA!

I haven't had mine for over a year, but almost 9 months. They have held up great. I don't have any issues with holes, although one developed a hole after a month or two and GM replaced it free of charge. No serging issues. I have had to send a few in to get snaps repaired, but that is rare.

This not the norm. Did you buy them new or used mama? and did you contact goodmama about the issues. They are great about fixing any faulty dipes.

I have had mine for a couple of months with absolutely no issues with the dipes or DS wearing them. (DS has eczema and sensitive skin if that helps answer one question) and there are several mamas in the "Extra Fluffy" forum who have had GM's for along time that could answer your ? in detail I'm sure.

I bought one off of fsot and 1 new and the same things happened. It's actually NOT rare to have snap issues or serging issues. There have been lots of mamas with these problems and some don't have problems but there ARE problems with these more then other dipes. EVen if you go on diaperpin.com others have complained about the same things. Not worth the money imo
