Question Here I go again...Swaddlebees hemp inserts??

I just bought 9 new ones, after the first wash 3 of them have 1-1.5" sections of serging coming undone - I contacted the WAHM store I got them from who gave me Swaddlebees addy to send them to. OK -

Then I washed the other 6 - trying to prep my hemp. They've now been washed 8 times. Well, I notice small holes in ALL of them & then I look at my other 3 hemp inserts that I've had longer, but they've only been washed about 15 times and they have holes too!! Now the holes are small, they are right along the serging line on the smaller insert topper piece. So the serging isn't coming undone, but there are holes beside the serging. (did that make sense?) Each insert has 4-15 small holes.

I think they'll work ok with the little holes, but should they be doing that already? They look like I've been using them a lot more than I have been. Should I contact Swaddlebees about the holes, or just forget it and send the other 3 with major serging issues back & keep the rest?

I'm SO frustrated. I really want to CD my son, but it's just getting nuts! I've gone through so much $$$ trying to find the perfect diapers for him and I think I've finally found it but, now $66 worth of inserts look like junk after one month! The hemp isn't even fully prepped yet!

hmmm... I had some SB hemp inserts that did that after 6 months or more of use but certainly not right away! It won't affect the use and they most likely won't get any worse. Hemp doesn't fray so you don't have to worry about that. So I guess it's up to you whether you want to go thru the trouble and time of getting them replaced. What a pain!!

Yes, I have a top loader; until our tax return NEXT year anyway! I washed them on hot. I usually run a cycle of just hot water (maybe vinegar if really stinky) and then wash them on hot with a touch of All, Free and Clear.


Thanks also Sherri - It's good to know that they'll hold up anyway.

I have some tha are older and have been used a lot more than what you are describing and they do not look like that... I'd tell SB about all of them.

I personally do not like hemp as well as other stuffers cause it can get stinky and I just dont have the best of luck with it. Maybe see if she will replace them with the micro ones and give you a refund of the difference.

Good Luck!
