Re: BG 2.0 & 3.0 Pic Comparison - Visibly Different!

What an awesome comparison!!! Thanks so much mama! I have been curious as to what changes they really did make. Thank you!

good comparison! I am glad we have 2.0's now as they had fit my preschooler and he outgrew them right before he turned 3 years old or about 36 pounds.

This is very helpful! If I ever buy these for a future baby I would get 3.0 since I don't really have chunksters.

When I stretched the elastic on my 2.0 and compared to the 3.0, they were the same length. The initial diaper cut was the same length, but the elastic scrunches up the 3.0 to be shorter.

The elastic is different. You're right. Stretched, the two diapers should be the same.

The tabs are intended to stretch to the exact same distance. The reach around the baby is the same.

The rise is also supposed to be identical.

To prevent major differences, we actually changed the finishing process in a way that will almost guarantee that every diaper identical. 2.0s that appear larger than the 3.0s were actually finished improperly. The slight difference in rise was a production issue that we're actually addressing now with our factory... It certainly is not intended.

Ah, makes sense. To me, it's good, my kids have skinny legs and I love how the new elastic hugs their legs. So my "larger" 2.0's are imperfect then... well i like them anyways
Wondering then, since elastic does loosen over time, would the diaper actually have more of a rise by the time a baby was on the largest snap setting...

That's funny, I just bought the exact same two diapers, even the colors the other day and did my own comparssion (w/out pics)

do you mind me asking where you found them and how much you spent?

I bought the Butternut 3.0 from teenibanini, and paid full price, $17.95, and the White 2.0 came from Cottonbabies, and was $14.95. Both were purchased at the end of December, not sure of the exact date. Is your white 2.0 bigger than your butternut 3.0 too then or are they the same?
Here's mine on my 35lber - not a huge difference on but you can see it. It is true the elastic stretches and once on the rise is similar, but the 3.0 does fit him smaller around than the 2.0, he is not really comfortable in the 3.0, it seems too tight and he wants it off, but he will wear the 2.0. I think the 2.0 fits a 35lb kiddo better around, whether intentionally or not:

very interesting. I'll be receiving some 3.0s soon. I'll be making a comparison!

Thanks for posting this for us.
