I have several diapers that DS is/has grown out of- I think...they are leaving red marks that don't seem to bother him at all. Does this mean I need to retire them for the next baby? They are all my favorites from a lullabydiaper custom order, and I'm SO bummed! Oh and 2 nearly new medium patty naps, he's on the LAST snaps already. I think he's officially in larges now, which I never thought would happen.

When do you retire diapers? When they leave red marks? When they can no longer be snapped? Butt crack showing? :LOL

We have a LONG rise here, so diapers get retired when they're getting too short (which is before crack is seen...) When we have poop escape out the back- it's time for a bigger size... We've never made it anywhere close to the last snaps.

sigh.

red marks or butt crack. Usually butt crack happens first.

Crack here. We don't use fitteds, I only have a couple, and he usually only wears them at night so we don't usually get a chance to see if he's having blowouts in them. But crack always happens for us first. We've never gotten anywhere near the last snaps either (well, except that one time I made him try on my NB Mutt for the new baby )...

when i can't snap them anymore. last snap setting is fine, but when it's a reach then it's time to put them away.

My babies have juicy thighs! We get red marks before we get crack.

Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.)0(
