I have mostly Bum Genius 4.0 One Size pockets, and EasyFit OS pockets. Seriously... are these really going to last through to potty training? They apparently go to 35lbs, but I find it hard to believe that the velcro/snaps and elastics will really last over 3 years of continual use, even with careful washing.

I also have some lower end Kawai OS pockets that will definitely not make it that long - the velcro is already destroyed on the velcro ones but the snaps are doing ok.

Anyone had their One Size diapers make it through to potty training?

Oh and yes they will last even with continuous use. I had three in them for a full year and before that two in them for a year. They lasted and held up well

A daycare child i care for is almost 2years. They use bum genius and they are doing well. The child has had a few blowouts lately (nearly ready to potty train, holding pee and going all at once) and they are going to try and strip them? not sure and see if they can up the absorbancy. They have a newborn and said they have the kind that snap vs the velcro this time..

I used OS diapers with ds and they fit him well from approx. 10 mths until potty-training. I did have the elastics on many of my cloth diapers go, but it may have been just the brand that I was using that was a problem.

Well my BG"s are on their 2nd owner and Miss N will likely be starting to train in the next 6 months. Still lots of room and life left in them. They aren't the prettiest, but totally usable.
