A banal question on a dreary Wednesday. Seriously, really banal. Ready?
Do you have a particular recommendation for disposable diapers?
(I DID warn you.)
We have been big fans of the Target Up & Up ones: cheap, not hideous, delivered by mail, fit the Bean’s tiny little butt well, leak only under extreme duress. Sadly, Target is a moron and has changed their design. (I have expressed this opinion to corporate, in scientific detail, and have been presented with a gift card I guess I will use on wipes, which remain very good.) We encountered the new ones, recognizable by their star pattern that has replaced the old dots, at my parents’ house over the holidays. I spent the whole time trying to figure out what we were doing differently that was resulting in 3-4 dramatic diaper failures each day — had the Bean grown? Was he drinking more? Were we forgetting to change him? — only to discover via the internet that the problem was a massive brand suicide on Target’s part.
So. Anything you like? We have in the past used Pampers (okay but weirdly puffy and somewhat leaky), Huggies (an expensive disaster, including multiple interior failures ending with silicon beads all over the Bean’s Business), 365 (almost as bad as the new Target ones, much pricier), and Luvs (okay, if ugly and plastic-y). Do I sound hard to please? I wasn’t, until Target decided to throw our love away.
P.S. First person to crow about cloth diapers gets to wash them, wash my tub after our tiny washer drains into it, and find somewhere to hang them dry that is not our apartment, ’cause there is no room at the inn, honey.
