won't buy again
on September 25, 2010
The material in these Pampers are supposed to make them thinner but more absorbent. It seems to good to be true, and I think it is. The diapers are indeed thinner and more flexible than the older Pampers and other brands. They are less bulky on baby, which is nice aesthetically and probably comfort-wise for baby. But I have not been impressed by these diapers' absorbency or leak prevention. Since I started using these, my baby has woken up from naps with pee leaks on her tummy (she sleeps on her stomach). This did not used to happen. With these diapers, I have to be sure to change them very frequently or she will have a leak. Not that I advocate leaving wet diapers on babies for long periods of time, but these diapers just don't seem to cut you any slack on forgetting to watch the clock. I wouldn't dare use these overnight, I'm sure my daughter would be swimming in pee in the morning if I did. I use the Huggies Overnights for bedtime and they keep it all in for 11 hours at a time.
I've also found that this thinner design just feels flimsy to me. I've felt like the diapers feel wet on the outside much much sooner than they should. And I guess this is a good thing- but it is very hard to tell when there is liquid in them because they don't seem to "change" much when they get wet, like some other diapers. I think I actually prefer a little diaper swelling just so I know by touch that is is time to change.
I guess I don't see that these diapers offer any advantage over other brands, unless you really hate how bulky other diapers are. I, for one, just want my diapers to hold in baby waste effectively, and I feel that these don't do as good of a job of that as others. I'm going to go back to using Huggies.
