New Pampers are no good ... we have switched to Huggies and all is good now!

I've patched together a composite pair - Huggies for my left cheek, New Pampers for the right - and honestly, I can't tell the difference.

Pampers Dry max put my beautiful 2 year old in the hospital for 3 days. The hospital could not figure out what was causing the redness, swelling, rash, etc. After intense treatment, she was discharged, but she still continues with the redness and pain. It was not until I read a newspaper article this morning about D...ry Max that I realized that her problems began right after I began using this product. Never again!!!! I'm going to stop on my way home and buy new diapers. Neither of my children will ever wear Dry max again!!

Okay, so the "Jessica Pero" that they "quoted" (and I use this term VERY loosely), was me. They have their "facts" wrong. It did not clear up when I switched her to cloth. I put her in Huggies Pure and naturals, and after 6 WEEKS of misery, she was finally "cleared up", but left with large scars. I love how they take two lines out of a 45 minute interview, and somehow skew this to look like it's the parents who are wrong...because a huge corporation could NEVER be wrong, right??? That must be why there are nearly 8500 parents on the facebook page who are all experiencing the same thing. I DID switch to cloth diapers, but only after it cleared up. I figured if they can put chemicals in their diapers that can cause my baby burns, well then I don't want anything to do with disposables, PERIOD. So my baby is wearing gdiapers. The thing is, if ONE baby is injured by a crib, or from a toy, it is immediately recalled. Pampers has had thousands of complaints about the same thing, a lot of which were diagnosed by doctors as chemical burns. I no longer trust Pampers, period. The way they have handled this is despicable.

Kids today are so sensitive. I raised mine in sandpaper diapers, and now they're raising theirs in sandpaper too!

I'm so glad to hear you switched to cloth diapers. Too bad you don't have a cotton cloth diaper service near you. I know so many mothers who love that!
