Diaper review...

We got a free pack Fisher Price Diapers for buying something at Babies R Us. I have tried a lot of diapers: Pampers, Huggies, Stop and Shop store brand and now Fisher Price.

Elle is just on the cusp between 1-2 size pampers and being a full 2 in all the brands.

I was excited to try the Fisher Price diapers because there are a lot of coupons out there and they seem inexpensive. For the good news first, they are great with pee. No leaks.

For the bad news: Poop goes right up the back of the diaper and out the top as if a special channel was built to direct it straight to the back of Elle's neck. Gross. The first time this happened, I thought I had misapplied the diaper. The second time I thought it was a particularly large or violent poop. The third time I had no one to blame but the diaper.

Because I am not one to waste diapers (cheap isn't even a strong enough word for me), I now fold over the back of the diaper facing in towards her little butt and tighten the sides extra tight. This will work for now.

  1. Never heard of them... do you guys have Costco out there? :) Kirkland diapers work well. We prefer Pampers here because they smell nice and they keep all potty where it should be. :) But Kirkland is a cheaper (read: inexpensive) and reliable brand. Poop up the neck is no fun; for mom or baby. :/
