Cheap Diapers

This is a total rant about cheap diapers.

I am not against using the generic brand for most products, but there are a few exceptions.  One of those exceptions is diapers.  The generic ones are NOT the same quality of the name brand ones.

If you know me, you know that I watch kids during the week.  Well, one of the girls is 7 months old.  Usually, her parents bring the generic brand diapers for me to use.  Once, they did bring actual Pampers.  Out of that package of name brand diapers she had 2 blowouts--out of the whole package.  With the generic diapers, typically she has 2 a DAY!  It is so frustrating!  I change her diaper frequently to avoid the diaper getting too full to hold up.  For example, this morning, I put a new diaper on her before putting her down for her nap.  When she woke up, 30 minutes later, she had poop all up her back!  In 30 minutes that diaper did not fill up, it just does not hold what it needs to!

I guess the reason for buying name brand diapers is for the parents to not have to deal with the mess of a generic brand.  The baby doesn't care one way or another.  I just wish her parents would be kind enough to splurge on the name brand diapers so I wouldn't have to deal with this problem every day!  (Not to mention having to wash her poopie clothes too!)

I totally agree! Dawson got way bad rashes that we could not get rid of when using generic. I am officially a Huggies person and have yet to see a blowout :)

Ugh! And dealing with poopy diapers and blowouts for a child who's not yours is so GROSS! I'm with you on the diaper issue.

gross!

i totally agree, not sure why parents buy cheap diapers, you just end up using more of them throughout the day cause they just don't hold up, so really are you saving any money? noooo! we only use pampers over here! get a clue parents!

Im am SOOO with you on this one!! I would not use anything but Huggies all through the 18 months with MayCee wearing them and then when Ryker came along my mom talked me into trying Kirkland (the Costco brand) and I LOVE THEM!! They are just like Huggies with a little more stretch to them and you get more for your money...so if you have not tried them I HIGHLY recommend them!!!!

i couldnt agree more! i tried every brand of diapers with trey and decided diapers is one of the few things worth spending more on for the name brand. i am a huggies mom! that is gross though that you have to change that many blowouts on a kid that isn't yours. you should say something... in a nice way, i would. oh ya, one more thing we found it is best to spend more for the name brand... pop tarts :)

I hate cheap diapers. Pampers are the best! Maybe you shouldn't wash her clothes. Rinse them out and put them in a ziplock bag and let them deal with it when they get home. Maybe they'll get the idea after getting poopy clothes every day.

I hate cheap diapers too, I thought what could really be the difference? SO I bought a Ton of walmart kind. Oh my gosh, terrible. I took the res back and upgraded to papmpers. I like them best. Cheapo diapers just cause more poo leakage and its worth the extra money on the diapers to not have to clean that mess.
