Re: My Flips are shot

Newbie question: Do all cover wear out so quickly or is it this specific model? Thanks!

Re: My Flips are shot

Wow this is an old thread. Havent used Flips since. I think Flips had some quality issues. I know a lot of people had issues with the elastics wearing out. I have always had great luck with any cover from Blueberry. They are my favs. I know there are more affordable OS options now like Imagine covers. Havent tried them, maybe other could chime in

Re: My Flips are shot

My covers lasted pretty well throughout diapering my son. He stopped wearing diapers around 27 or 28 months. The waist elastics are fine. The covers I have are from when they first came out too, when they only had 3 colors. I think considering he wore 3-4 of them every day, and with washing them every other day, the elastic did pretty well. I think 5 out of my 8 covers really need new elastic. They still work on a bigger baby, but will be loose on a new baby.

It's normal for elastic to wear out over time. If you think about clothes that have elastic in them, we don't necessarily wear those clothes every other day and wash them with hot water every other day, and those things naturally wear out fabrics quicker than handwashing, washing with cold water, or wearing something only once a week or so. I love my Flips and have been very happy with their quality and wear. I just got some more because I need girl colors this time . Those are just my thoughts
