WWYD? BG OS 2.0's or BG 3.0's??

Today I just bought 6 BG OS 2.0 clearance pockets for Abby (19 months) and they will also be used for the new baby as well in March. They have the newest version of non-pill lycra stretchy tabs, and non-wicking tabs... but they have the softer older velcro vs the 3.0 stronger velcro.
So I can't decide if I should save the $36 now and buy a dozen more, to use for the new baby from size small through pt'ing (I'm buying a stash of newborn covers too).... or wait and get a dozen of the 3.0's later.

FWIW we use them as COVERS not pockets. At first with snappi'd prefolds for the nb/sm explosive stages, and then starting at med. size/6mo. or so we start just trifolding the prefolds and laying them inside. I just prefer the cotton on their bottoms, and mostly I like being able to reuse the cover instead of one use pockets, and I also don't have to mess with stuffing them.

What would you do?

I'm not buying any until the 3.0's are out. Even with the non-pilly tabs, they're still ruined if any of the velcro tabs gets loose.

Do you mean if the tabs wear out and don't stick anymore, or do you mean the stitching comes out? I wonder if they will offer replacement tabs for ruined 2.0's (that are like the 3.0's tabs)? Hmmmm

Should have said "in the wash", sorry, tired and sick with cold.

No, what happened to mine is that when you washed a bunch together and the tab didn't stick to the laundry tab thingy that the vecro grabbed anything else it could, usually the stretchy part of the tab which is much like bathing suit material, it fuzzes up and then pills. I've never had it happen, but some have said that their PUL has been ruined by a tab too.

No one knows the changes or when they will come out. I wish there was atleast a DATE.

We need a few more and I think I'll probably buy 6 more or so of the ones on sale right now. The ones I have are they same and they still look great after months. Good enough for me

I vote for you to wait until the 3.0's come out and buy the 2.0's that will be up FSOT.

We love the 2.0's. Rarely ever have a problem with them wicking. We've tried soooo many different diaper combinations. I'm at the point of selling off my stash as my youngest is PLing. These are the ONLY diapers I'm going to hold on to, and I'm not even sure we're having any more babies. I just loved them.

That being said, I'm sure they'll only get better. If you can afford to wait, then go for it.

I got a 5% off coupon from abbyslane for making a purchase (I just bought 6 yesterday from them) and they have free shipping too, so I bought 6 more!
They were only $14.20 each ppd.
Depending on if Abby is potty trained or not when the baby is born, I'll get 6 more 3.0's if needed at that point.

Thanks mamas!
