I was one of the 50 or so parent bloggers that were contacted on behalf of Proctor and Gamble to try the new Pampers Dry Max diapers. They sent me a bag of diapers to try for a week so that I could write a review and then host a giveaway for them. I did that and had no problems with the diapers. I even liked them enough to switch from using Huggies Supreme, and I’ve been using Huggies for three years without interruption.
The diapers smell great and work well for us. We haven’t had any issues with diaper rashes or leaking. The only issue I had was that those little gell pellets were on my son once, but my husband said that happened because I left the diaper on my son too long. We used to have the problem with Huggies too, so of course I believe that it’s my error. It’s certainly not a new diaper issue and neither are diaper rashes for that matter. We all know diapers do cause diaper rashes, it’s the nature of the beast. We have had diaper rashes off and on no matter what brand we are using, sometimes if I give the kids too much juice they get a diaper rash. The acidity in the juice makes them more sensitive. It is usually a sign that I need to change the diaper more often. We were also told by our doctor that when they are sick, they are more likely to get a diaper rash. I’m not a doctor, but I am interested to see what really is behind all of the uproar over these new diapers. I almost feel like moms are upset over the initial reaction from Proctor & Gamble, and not the fact that their children have diaper rashes.
Pampers Dry Max diapers are not dangerous to use,they are made of the same “tried and tested ingredients” (Proctor & Gamble Press Release). I was contacted again on behalf of Proctor and Gamble to share with you the statistics and facts about how rigorously they were tested before they were released; but it’s just numbers. It’s not as personal as me telling you. I USE THEM. I have no problems with them. I do however, have to pay more attention to when my child goes potty. It is easy not to notice that they went because the diapers are so thin. I’m one of those parents that pats their child down to see if they went potty. If I can’t feel it that must mean they didn’t go right. No, with Pampers new Dry Max, they might have gone, so just changing them every few hours is better than taking the chance that they didn’t go. I also find that sometimes I have to really look into the diaper to see if my son went poo poo because the diapers smell so good.
Proctor & Gamble are standing behind their product because they did test it. They are standing behind their product because they believe it works and as far as my family is concerned it does work.
I did receive on bag of diapers free, but I have purchased the rest I’ve used myself.
