This. Seam ripper and then stick the tabs on for washing. To me, not worth the hassle to sell

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

Wow - these are actually an improvement from the 3.0s

I'm surprised so many are complaining - after a wash or two they will definitely soften up. They hold up MUCH better than the 3.0 laundry tabs that don't hold squat.

If you don't want them on there I would use a seam ripper and just use them as laundry tabs.

I had the same problem with my 4.0's. I returned them for snaps. With these I'm just removing the laundry tabs and using them to wash.

yep i seam ripped mine out. Im not due till jan but for 6.00 each and free ship it wasnt worth it to sell. They will be devalued but prob not any less then with it since they were only 6 i got 9 and about half were like this.

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

I called about this since it was turning Asher's skin red. They said it wasn't why it was seconds because this is their new 4.0 version.

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

I see so many complaints about this. People are blowing it way out of proportion. My newborn somehow survived 7 weeks (so far) of the new laundry tabs on almost every single diaper. It is a complete non issue. Man, I feel so bad for Cottonbabies. D*amned if you do and d*amned if you don't. If your baby has normal skin, it will be just fine FOR SURE!! I am actually very, very sad about my AIO's that have the old laundry tabs. They will crap out in no time for sure. I absolutely love the new ones.

Mine are softer already. No problem on DS2's skin so far.

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

I used 3.0's with the new tabs for a long time, they never bothered my little ones. I can understand if your particular child is having an issue, like a pp (redness, etc), but in that case you can remove the tabs. Or have them converted to snaps.

Re: Sooo bummed about my CB seconds!

They irritate my 3 month old's back too. We've been folding it up when we put them on him (which sometimes causes a leak) , i definitely don't consider laundry tabs that turn his back bright red an upgrade. We've been using some of the 4.0 seconds for about a month and they still aren't very soft.

I noticed that too but I've heard the suede cloth on these doesnt absorb fast enough for tiny NB's so I plan to put doublers on top of the SC which will cover up the scratchy velcro!
