I have a lot of diapers that have basically fallen apart. I really don't know why this happens. I feel like I have a lot of diapers in my rotation. I haven't had the problem w/ fuzzibunz, motherease, or kissaluvs, but most of the others eventually start getting holes. It just continues until the soaker is hanging out and the elastic is exposed. My grandma sews for me so I gave them to her to repair. Most of them she said are beyond repair. She did fix some but then only a short time later they started getting more holes. I don't bleach my diapers and I usually use natural detergent. Does anyone have any ideas why this would happen? Can they be repaired or recycled? They get washed 1-2x a week. Some diapers last a few months, some last a few years. How long should a diaper last? Also, I do dry them in the dryer every time.
