I’m pretty sure that my Bum Geniuses have become delaminated- the insides of the pockets are all rough and the pee goes right through them. it’s there anything that can be done, other than buying new ones?
My condolences to you for your diapers. A moment of silence for the poor fellas. I have dealt with delamination where you can actually see the plastic-y layer peeling away from the fabric. I haven’t dealt with the issue you’re having, but it almost sounds as though the lamination has somehow been removed if you are feeling the roughness of the outer layer & not the slick laminated layer.
If the diapers are less than a year old, contact Cottonbabies to see if they are covered under warranty. If not, you could donate them, use them with a cover, or attempt to re-waterproof them. I have not tried this myself and cannot vouch for the safety or efficacy however, other families have used waterproofing spray purchased at a camping store to restore the water resistance of their diapers.
I’m curious how old the diapers are, if it was only this brand, and whether you used bleach, high heat, sanitize cycles etc.
Have you successfully repaired a delaminated diaper?
