I have several WAHM diapers (fitteds and AIOs) that I'm having snap problems with. First, one of the AIOs had a snap fall off. I contacted her and she offered to put it back on. Then, my dh was changing daughter and couldn't get the snap to go in; we looked at it and the snap looks melted on the edge. However, I've never heard that you can't dry diapers with (plastic) snaps, and besides, they're worthless if they can't be dried (been drying on high) because they would take forever and a day to air dry. Anyone else have this kind of problem? Could it be the brand of snap she's using is just not very sturdy? I do notice a difference between the snaps on the diapers that have had problems and some earlier ones I ordered from her (the older snaps seem better).<br><br>

I would definitely contact her - I think she would want to know if there is a problem with the new snaps. I had this happen with a particular type of snap (not the plastic ones, but some sort of resin I think) on a new diapers, but not with the older plastic snaps. HTH!

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: there are lots of differnet snaps out there... but in general plastic snaps are weaker than resin snaps.... plastic snaps can be affected by hot and cold.. tho i dont know at what temperature .... tho sounds like the melted one must have gotten stuck some place for it to get hot enough to melt. As for drying temperatures, i always dry on medium ... the only thing i dry on high is my towels. IMO diapers.. regardless of materials used, arent really made for drying on high heat.. really has nothing to do with snaps, but elastics.... i think high heat contributes to failure in both braided and non braided elastic ... and i want mine to last longer <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Perhaps the older ones are resin. (I'm not sure how to tell.) They are definitely sturdier and thicker than the new ones. My husband wrote her a letter telling her how much we loved the diapers (cute and great fit) and asking her if she could replace the snaps. Hopefully, she'll go back to the old snaps.<br><br>
I'm drying a load on low heat now; hopefully, they won't take too long. Unfortunately, my dryer only has high or low, no medium heat.
