Does anyone else have trouble with the elastic on their Fuzzi Bunz? Mine get so slack that the diaper no longer gives a tight fit around my babe's legs.<br><br>
I have never put them into the dryer, so I am not sure what causes it. I even made sure the thermostat on the water heater wasn't higher than normal. Any suggestions on what I can do to prevent this in the future?

No, but if you have had them for not too long I would write to the makers. They may replace the elastic for you for a nominal fee and address behaviour that could cause the elastic to give up. Worth a try?

I haven't used fb's, but that sounds really wierd and not normal to me!<br><br>
Especially after you have gone as far as not using a dryer, you deserve good elastic, I think. I would definately contact the manufactuer.<br><br>
Good luck!

hmm... that's very odd. How old are they? Did you purchase them new or used?

I bought them new. They are about 3.5 months old. I know that the elastic has gone because I compared them to some new ones, and the elastic on mine is much less gathered. The legs have gaping holes now where before there were none regardless of which snap setting I use.

I would definitly contact Mother of Eden. I had a FB that was about 4- 5 months old and the stitching was coming undone around the waist in the back. I called them about it and they sent me a new one! I did'nt even have to return the defective one, I ended up fixing the stitching myself and now I have an extra!

I called MOE. The woman I spoke to said to send in the diapers and they would look at them. Now, I have to figure out what to use in the meantime... maybe I will send half at a time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">.<br><br>
I will let you all know what happens. Thanks for your help!
