How to determine elasticity health?

Wasn't sure how to word that, lol. I bought a bunch of Alva's used and some of them don't seem as "springy" as others...is there any way to know in advance if they are ok or if they need repair?

If they are crackly they are bad. If some are proably stretched out but not necessarily bad. Are the OS? Be aware if the leg elastic is stretched out they may not work on skinny infant legs as soon as new elastic.

They aren't crackly, just stretched. They are OS!

Thanks a bunch!!!

Yup, crackle means they are on the verge of not working at all. Stretched out just means larger babies will fit better and sooner than slender babies. My babies were chunks. Looser elastic helped prevent marks.
