Is it possible to replace velcro on BGv2?

Postby cvdbout » Thu Sep 24, 2009 1:53 pm

We have about 15 bumgenius v2 which we are planning on using on our next child (due in 3 weeks). we still use them on our son, and have done for about a year and a half now, and the velcro is starting to look a little bit worse for wear, some nappies not even staying on (he is an active 2 year old).

is it possible to replace the velcro on them? I really dont want to have to buy more, but they are the simplest nappies for DH to stuff and easy for everyone else who use them.

might be a stupid question, but the obvious way of replacing would mean sewing through the PUL

I knew they did a popper replacement service, but never saw anything for velcro. I might email them.
