Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

So i bought six of the XS BG AIOs in the seconds sale. i've NEVER had any issues with buying seconds before, but i'd never done it from cotton babies. 3 of my diapers are fine, but the other three have the scratchy hook and loop on the INSIDE for the laundry tab. that would mean a baby would have to have that scratchy stuff rubbing on their little backs. i do not really feel like that is a "useable" option. i mean, they were a great deal, so i probably shouldn't be complaining, but ugh! i now have 3 scratchy back diapers that i won't use and i don't feel comfortable selling...Did anyone else get diapers like that?

That's the new 4.0 velcro-- it softens up with washings. Though, I removed mine and I just stick the tabs on there when I put it in the pail. It would bug me to have that on my butt!

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

that really sucks...you'd think that they'd tell you what the second issue was. ...is there any way you can just remove it so it's at least usable?

I'd contact them about it. Maybe they would let you return them or something. I agree that they arent really useable.

Thats nothing to do with 2nds. Apprantly they had a batch if firsts like this. After enough complaints they changed it.

Just take a stitch ripper and rip it out if you hate it. Or sell them and recoup your $

go to the store, but a bit of the soft applix/velcro, cut a small piece to match the scratch part, and stick in on there.

if not, send to me. theyre still useable!

that's the way they do the 4.0's. it's suppose to be an upgrade from the way it was. it is not a defect.

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

so all the new 4.0s have that for the laundry tabs? that is horrible! i can't imagine having that touching any baby parts! i was looking at it and i think i will just seam rip it off, looks pretty easy, and i love the suggestion about going to the store and getting some of the soft velcro and just keeping it in my laundry room to attach when i wash, even though it's an extra step, at least it'll keep the velcro from snagging on things. i really don't like velcro!!! thanks for the tips ladies.

I bought a lot of the XS and half had these tabs. But I read that it was normal and the moms that have used them said they were totally fine
