Do you ever feel like you bought a lemon?

I bought a dozen AIOs at Black Friday. Two of them needed to go back right away because the stitching was wonky, one of them was me being picky but the other was a diaper that really should have been a seconds, it just looked awful. Since they didn't agree with me that they were faulty I had to pay for shipping. Fine, my choice, I just didn't want to deal with them later having issues if I could avoid it before they'd even been washed or used.

In late January one of the diapers had a snap pop off. As it was after 30 days since purchase I had to pay to send it back for repair. In the process of "repairing" they tore it, and had to send me a different print to replace it.

Today I noticed another of the diapers has holes forming around the snaps and runs in the PUL surrounding the snaps. So now I'll get to spend even more of my money to mail back another faulty product, and be down a diaper for another 2-3 weeks because they are slow like that

Seriously, the rate at which I am dealing with problems on these diapers makes me never want to buy from them again. Which I won't anyway because the product recently saw a 30% price hike.

I know, e-mail CS, they will replace it under warranty. But I'm pretty sick and tired of having to do that! I've been CDing for 4 years, and have never had this many lemons in one batch

I got a cover like that once, but on its smallest rise you can't tell there is an issue, once I started sizing up I realized the inner was cut really wonky and it pulls down on the outer top panel. It drives me nuts and really should have been a seconds quality cover. However dh told me since it still works fine, just leave it be. I just reach for it last. Luckily, I bought it at a going out of business sale so didn't pay full price or I probably would have sent it back!

Can't say I have ever had that many issues with diapers I have bought. That really stinks. What diapers are they? After that many issues with them I would think they would do more than just repair them. After all black Friday was only 3 1/2 months ago.

OP: Sounds like maybe a bad batch. We rarely get complains about the diapers you purchased (I'm pretty sure I know which ones you are talking about).

I bought some Thirsties covers off Amazon a few years ago and the rise snaps just didn't work. Thirsties was kind enough to replace them for me.

too frustrating! I would probably be inclined not to use the brand at all.
