Old fb os vs new fb elite

How do you tell them apart? I got some in a trade and know nothing about them. They have button elastic leg adjuster thingies and came with extra replacement elastics and 2 inserts each.

I think the Elites say Elite on the tag. I don't have any, but I thought I had heard that before. Hopefully someone who has them chimes in for you :-/

Re: Old fb os vs new fb elite

The quickest way to tell from the front is the snap placement. Look at your thigh snaps: are there three or four? Three = Elites, four = old-style OS. The elastic adjustment/button is inside the pocket on Elites whereas it's accessible from the outside on the old-style OS. Elites have absorbent minky inserts; old-style OS have microfiber terry inserts. And the Elite is cut slightly narrower through the crotch.

Most of my Elites say "One-Size Elite" on the tag, but the one I got from the very first batch of them just has a "One-Size" tag.

Elites you have to turn the diaper inside out to adjust the elastics.

Re: Old fb os vs new fb elite

The elites are more narrow on the inside and yes, the adjustable elastic is on the inside of the diaper and has a slot to insert the elastic. They are pretty narrow and my husband sometimes has trouble stuffing them - although I do not because I have small hands. They work really well but the pocket is small.

Re: Old fb os vs new fb elite

The old OS have the buttons where they are against your child, the elites they are now hidden.
