Disposables = Leaks and Diaper Rash (for us)

Disclaimer: This is my experience only. No need to defend your diapers to me!

We're using disposables for our 12 day trip, mostly because it'd cost about $75 to check the diapers through the airport in all, which seems ridiculous. Though I have been pleased during the daytime with them (besides the smell - gross!) we've had two nights of pee-throughs. And that's with Pampers nighttime diapers! I guess they aren't made for little guys who nurse all night long!

The other problem is that Joseph developed a diaper rash. I'm going to try the Huggies we brought today to see if that solves the problem (along with some diaper cream). I'm hoping it's just because of the fragrance of the Pampers.

Can't wait to get back to our Green Mountain Prefolds!

Same here. We decided to bring some leftover disposables on a week trip with us. My daughter had SIX poop explosions.

Disposables work better for some people than others. We are glad that cloth diapers are able to hold all our messes in!

Hopefully the cream helps. Have you ever thought about bringing the disposable version of cloth diapers (GroBaby has a good one)?? They are way out of our price range but I know that some people like them.

Odd. His diapers are full alright, but, we've never had a leak even when Andrew has slept 14.5 hours, and usually at least 11 hours...and also no issues with diaper rash.

Every kid is different, I guess!

see if you can find some tushies. they're closest to cloth for sposies.

We have the same issues when we have had to use disposables-- they wreak and they leak. Barf.

What kind of diaper cream are you using? Triple paste is the best!

ugh ugh ugh - we have the same problems whenever we have to use sposies. She's leaked every time we've had to use them overnight since she was like six months old. And, she's not drinking at night past dinner time so I don't think it has anything to do with him nursing at night.

I've found Huggies to smell less than Pampers, but they still stink. And Burts Bees is great for rash, plus works with the GMDs so you can still use it if you get any rash at home.

I love your disclaimer. Me and pampers are bestest of friends. :)

my little Siri with the sensitive skin hates Pampers- the perfume in them kills her skin- hope the Huggies worked
