I’m not a diaper snob. I’ve changed enough diapers to know that if you can put one on properly, they all do the same thing. Maybe I should clarify. I’ve changed enough kids’ diapers…cleaning adults’ diapers is something for people with bigger hearts and stronger stomachs than mine. Anyways, my favorite brand is whatever’s on sale. Because there’s no use in spending a ton of money on something that someone is going to poop in. Really.
The last pack of diapers I bought contradict my diaper ethos. I do like Huggies a lot, but I won’t buy them unless they are on sale and Huggies has mailed me coupons. That was my plan when I went into Rite Aid. Then I saw the Rite Aid Brand, Tugaboos, on sale. Two packages of 42 diapers for $15. They were the cheapest. So I bought them.
They suck. Not that they leak. I know how to put a diaper on, so my diapers don’t leak. But they don’t absorb anything. Not even pee. When the pee doesn’t get absorbed, you get diaper rashes galore. And you spend more money on the Desitin you have to apply than you would have just buying…any other brand of diapers. Regretting my purchase.
The only other diapers I won’t buy are Pampers Dry Max because of the huge scandal that happened about last year that they still refuse happened. Babies were getting chemical burns on their bums and other areas because of whatever formula they used to make their diapers. And Pampers is still incredibly unapologetic.
Are you a diaper snob? What are your favorites/least favorites? Or are you like me and generally don’t care?
