So my fuzzibunz frog prints (3.5 months old) all are starting to peel on the inside. THey actually MELTED on 3 of them. I have 12 solids and 12 frogs, all bought the same day. The solids are all fine.<br><br>
SEe picture:<br><a href="http://pic7.picturetrail.com/VOL192/1281226/5588273/76617833.jpg" target="_blank">http://pic7.picturetrail.com/VOL192/...3/76617833.jpg</a><br><br>
I have to mail them back to MOE, where they "may" replace them. That stinks. That's 60% of Katie's diapers and 30% of Libby's! HELLO!?! I can't just NOT have those diapers! And especially if I have no guarantee of getting a replacement.<br><br>
This just stinks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
3.5 months of use and they freaking MELT???????????<br><br>
I've had other FB that NEVER did anything of the sort.<br><br>

They "may" replace them??? I don't think so! If they are in that bad a shape, they BETTER replace them.<br>
Sorry you're having to deal with this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I've definitely heard around that the froggies were made from a different PUL than the solids, and I've also heard that this problem is being remedied, but I don't know if it is yet. But everyone I know has had no problem getting their dipes replaced.

I'm sorry<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I hope they replace them. Do you have prefolds & covers for in the mean time?

You'll get them replaced I"m sure. I think the "may" was just to cover their own behind .. Like, say they told you "yeah! we'll replace them right away!" then they get them and something else is going on, like you were some kidn of nutcase and held them over a candle flame because you thought it would "help seal the needle holes" (trust me.. I've personally heard this before). They just want to make sure the problem you are having is the problem with the fabric.<br><br>
I know it's frustrating, but there was no way for MOE to know their fabric was flawed..it's the fault of the company that laminates the fabric. And that company is really awful to work with (personal experience again) but there aren't a lot of choices when it comes to fabric lamination. I'm sure MOE is handling it the best way they know how and will take care of their customers. It's a tough situation all the way around.<br><br>
In the meantime, there are some really inexpensive options out there to get you buy if you need a handful more of diapers. diaperjunction.com is going out of business and everything is on sale and has free shipping so you might see what is left over there. Or, maybe a mama reading this might have some diapers to spare to get you through until the new ones come.<br><br>
Good luck! sorry you are caught up in this situation.. MOE will take care of you though, I'm sure of it.<br><br>

I think FB should give up on the prints.:LOL Seems like they've had nothing but problems with their prints. Printed backwards bugs and now peeling froggies. Thats just too bad because they are cute.<br>
I hope that they send out replacements speedily.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

UGH! I had that happen to one of my bug prints not long after I got it and it made me so MAD! It didn't actually peel up, but it did bubble and pucker in. How frustrating! I hope you get some decent replacements easily enough!

ITA with everything Amber said. Unless you have done something funky to them, which I seriously doubt, they will replace them.

I don't like the inconsistency in quality with FB's. I had mediums when my son was an infant that only were worn about 3-4 months and all wicked horribly! At first I emailed MOE and got no response. Then I tried again several months later and they *did* replace them all. I have had no trouble with the replacements.<br><br>
So I bet they will replace them. However, I understand- what are you supposed to do in the meantime?!<br><br>
There are just so many reasons I am not a pocket/AIO fan!

Are these seconds or first quality? Do they replace the seconds? I have 4 of the froggy seconds. So far they're fine, but I never put them in the dryer.

MOE was not happy with the turnout of the prints so they are not made anymore anyways. I am sure they will replace your dipes though!

My froggyprints aren't holding up very well either, but my solids are still fine. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I hope they replace them for you!

so, did they replace them? I was wondering because one of my snaps is not working right because the fabric is surrounding it and it is a pain to use.

I haven't had any problems with mine, yet! I have 3 that I'm using now and 1 for the new baby 2 are SQ. Maybe it was just a bad batch <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
