Smile Should I sale or keep?

I caved to the GM craze and keep buying diapers that just dont work that well for us (the longer soakers work well before washing but they seem to shrink a little too much for my liking too and the exposed snaps bug me) I keep buying more with the thought that maybe they will work this time. I just bought 4 old style print GMs with short soaker just for the print knowing that the only way they kind of work is if I snap the soaker in the front and then it hangs out and the rear snaps leave marks on my little mans tush. Anyone else hang onto diapers that dont work well just because they are popular and HTF?
Please no negativity, I was just wondering if there are others like me. After reading this I feel bad for even considering keeping diapers that so many other mamas really want just because...
For those with boys, does your little boys "package" stay above the older soaker and pee right to the outside? any recommendations to make these GMs work for us
Also, Besides the soaker being a little to short, the fit is perfect on DS.

No help for ya mama... But I say good luck! I'm in the same boat- Debating whether to keep the 3 NIP we have, or use them.... Darn darn darn.

Isn't it ridiculous how hard we think about diapers?! LOL it should be easy, but gosh darn it they're squishy deliciousness!

I've done the same thing with other diapers... "maybe it will work this time"... If they don't work for you sell them. If you are thinking about another kid and you want to keep them for them, then keep them... I hate having stuff taking up space that doesnot work for me so I sell immediately and then move on.

I never thought about saving them for another kid, do diapers do well stored for a long time, it may be a couple years til we try again.

Mama, if you decide to sell (and they have the new longer soakers), please PM me! I do not discriminate against what is "boyish" vs. what is "girly", either, so any colors are fine! TIA!

I have heard that dipes sometimes have elastic issues after being stored... the elastic can get brittle... have not tried it myself though; HTH!
