A bunch of my diapers have holes. 3 Motherease and one other. Both are next to the soaker at seamline but now spreading. I guess I shouldn't use until repairing. Can I do it by hand with some old clothes? I miss using them!

I heard not to sew b/c it could make it worse.And to use them as normal without any issues of stuff getting stuck inside the holes. Still interested if others agree with that. It'll do for now.

No. Some of the holes are bigger than others. It seems they will keep ripping.

Okay, well if it is the fabric that is wearing down and not just a seam that has come loose then I am not sure that you can fix it. I would just continue to use them until they aren't working anymore.

Putting a little patch from an old tshirt couldnt hurt. Just make sure the fabric has been through the dryer already.
