Anyone ever have a snappi actually break???

I just opened a 2 pack of snappi's yesterday to start w/ a fresh one since the one Peyton was wearing was getting old. Today before bedtime her Aristocrats soaker fell off (it's a bit big on her) and her snappi just broke. She was walking down the hall saying "uh oh" because her diaper was falling off. I know that they say to replace them every 6 months so they don't break on you, but this was a new one. Oh well!

I had one break while I was changing her the little white piece just fell out. I threw it away and moved on b/c I bought mine used so I wasn't TOO heartbroken. I REALLY need to buy a bunch for when ds is born.

I'm not too heart broken b/c the person I bought them from gave me 4 of them for free. The first four I ordered had gotten lost in the mail, so she sent me more. A couple of weeks later, I got the first set she sent and she told me to keep them.

Hmmm. I've not had a new one break but I have had a couple of old ones break...and well past the 6 month timeframe they give.

Must have just been from a bad batch or something.

Mine never break. They just get super stretchy and don't "snap" back. That lets me know it's time to toss them.

I had one of the "loops" break off, but not the actually snappi part. We always wear covers when using a snappi just incase though.

We had a loop break this morning on one I've only been using a week.

I'm using snappis that are 3 or more years old. I've never had one break. I have had the claw part come out when I pulled them too hard but it's an easy fix.

I had one snap once, but I think it was because I accidentally washed it.

Yes, I also opened a package of new ones not too long ago. I stretched them out about 15 times. Then when I went to use the bottom claw as I was pulling, it popped right off.
