Help the snaps on my diapes are falling off like crazy! It's not just one either, three diapers lost a snap this week and they are not even the same kind of diaper either. Could it be because I've been lazy and I've dried my diapers in the dryer the past two times? Does anyone have any suggestions on putting the snaps back together again? Or does anyone know where I can buy new snaps? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> Someone save my sweet diapes!!

Your snaps shouldn't fall off just because you used the dryer. (That said, the place I have lost defective snaps has been in the dryer). Maybe you have a few defective snaps?

email the wahm(s) you bought the diapers from. some wahms have a policy that they will replace snaps that fall off or break. or you can find someone that has a snap press that can replace the snap for you. here's the list of wahms/mama's that will replace snaps for you for a small fee <a href="http://home.att.net/~tjatsdehart/Snapservice.html" target="_blank">http://home.att.net/~tjatsdehart/Snapservice.html</a><br><br>

hmmm ... are they breaking or just workin their way out of the fabric? plastic can break if dryed on high heat over time ive found, but its usually not a problem <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Very unusual for snaps to fall off 3 different types off dipes. I remember someone on a board a couple of years ago (Amity's? CD reviews?) who's dryer was "hard" on snaps.<br><br>

A couple of WAHM's I know just had a major issues with a new kind of snap they were using. I got two soakers with snaps that fell off after only one wash/dry. The snaps were defective and both WAHM's are fixing the problem. It happens, but usually the WAHM knows pretty quickly and alerts her customers.

Definately talk to the wahms, this happened to me a few months ago, and they were more than happy to fix them for free, and Liz(liz's cloth) even paid for the shipping both ways!!
