Seems like BBH are a bit hit and miss. I'll just have to try a few different brands and see how they hold up in a few years time.

The person from BBH who I spoke with about the issues insinuated that my washing machine or care of nappies or my sons wee was the reason behind their elasticity issues, despite the fact that other nappies that we have used constantly over the years are still working fine (both BBH and other brands). They refused to be held accountable.
It's obvious that this particular batch had elasticity issues, but they won't acknowledge it.

I have 2 bbh that I have had since my son was 6months, the elastic is gone but they still work the pul is good, honestly though. I think all the things that pp mentioned eg sons wee washing machine how you wash ect do have a baring on how long they last, the elastic in my itti's were still ok after 1 baby but I don't think they would last 2
My bamboo flats however are still going great and I use the for all sorts of things now. Also I think if you are having babies one after the other, then sure they will last better then if they are stuck in storage
Also pending on when your children toilet train too eg my boys were tt at 20m and 14m so my nappies only had to last me 3 years technically where as some children are not toilet trained until 3 so to last 2x children that would be 6 years and twice as many washes

So based on the variables it's unreasonable to think that a cloth nappy business should replace nappies that have out lasted one child, in the whole scheme of things if you are using cloth nappies you will save money weather you have to buy more for a second child or have some fixed which is always possible if you can track down someone with seeing skills.
Most companies have at least a one year warrantee, it's not like it's Tupperware that lasts forever coz it's plastic and will never biodegrade.
Sorry for my rant I know with my nappies I only used rockin green and I was very particular about line hanging and they occasionally saw the dryer, still after daily hardcore wear and constant washing They held up pretty amazingly

I agree with Maximum, other than my BumGenius nappies bamboo flats certainly go the distance! Covers are pretty cheap to replace, and u certainly would get more than a few years of use out of a set of bamboo flats. They dry quickly too!
I love my Bumboo bamboo flats, regular size is all u need! (though I use toddler size for nights on my 23 month old). The Bumboo wipes are also great, as apart from wipes I also use them for a bit of extra boosting for nights/long car rides etc.

I don't use cloth nappies for financial reasons though - my reasons are environmental. But I did have to a factor in choosing *which* cloth nappies (MCN's vs flats). It seems that flats are not only cheaper up front, they really go the distance too!

Flats really are wonderful, I think they have a bad rep and can be really daunting for cloth newbies but the bamboo ones are so absorbent and dry so fast and realistically they take all of 2 seconds to fold I used to. 'prefold' my flats in the same amount of time it took to find what snapped I insert goes with what and snap it in

Yep they are definitely daunting for first timers. I was given some flats & prefolds but didn't use them for ages, it was all too confusing

I've just been googling bamboo flats and prefolds art least for home. Don't know how I'll go getting them on my very wriggly boy. Lol. Please tell me they stop wriggling. Please?

Yep when they start toilet training once the nappy is folded provided you have a snappi on hand it's super easy to pop them on.
