As some of you may know... Tena has recently made some changes to their US marketted diapers. They used to have nice sturdy tapes and a tape "landing zone" on the front. This has been done away with and replaced with velcro-like fasteners that will hook anywhere on the diaper.
The problem I'm having is that the new velcro fasteners aren't attached very well to the wings. On a good percentage of the diapers one or 2 of the fasteners will pull right off without much effort at all. I find this extremely frustrating.
Having to rely on them 24/7 as I do it's tough when I don't know whether or not the diaper I brought along for a change is going to fasten properly. I've sorted through most of the case I got on friday and ended up tossing a large number of the diapers b/c of the tape issue. This makes me quite angry b/c it's money that I'm throwing away... and the Tenas aren't cheap.
This being said... I am going to be writing Tena a nice letter this afternoon... let them know exactly what I think of their new changes. I definately don't plan on buying any more. I advise the rest of you here in the US to avoid Tena as well... atleast until they get enough complaints and get the problem straightened out.
Why does it always seem that when a US diaper manufacturer goes to a "new and improved" product... it is always worse than the old version?
