Love the diaper, don’t love the blowouts
February 5, 2019
I really really wanted to love these diapers. I switched over to these from pampers swaddlers sensitive because I found those to have an artificial smell that really bothered me. I tried most natural brands of diapers and found that they didn’t absorb quite as well as conventional diapers, so I was super excited to try pampers pure.
These fit a little bigger than the other natural brands I tried. They come in really cute designs (although I keep getting boxes of the same design, it looks like each size has two different designs). They are really thin and soft and surprisingly absorbent. They don’t get hard like other natural diapers when they’re full- it more of the gel feeling you get from conventional diapers.
When they are wet, I find they do emit a very distinct smell- the smell is really hard to describe but I know right away when my baby’s diaper is wet because of the smell when he’s wearing these diapers. It’s not the usual urine smell you get with natural diapers.
The real reason I can’t wholeheartedly recommend these diapers is because of the blowouts I’ve had. The back of the diaper doesn’t have any elastic, pocket, or anything to catch baby poop- so until baby’s stool is more solid, there is a high risk of blowouts up the back. I tried sizing up to prevent this problem but it’s more of a design issue- maybe it’s the shape of my baby’s body but the back was always gaping open when he leaned over.
Because I love the diaper so much, I use them when I’m home with the baby and can deal with blowouts! I switch to another diaper when we’re going out and I can’t take the risk.
Other than that, the diaper is really absorbent and I’ve never had any issues with leaks or poop escaping from the legs.
