I'm sure you'll be one of the first to sue instead of just changing brands.
I do not agree with sueing, however I beieve that a company has the right to know if there is an issue. Knowledge is how we make advancements, with ignorance we become stagnant.

Ya know, I used pampers on my child and he had a diaper rash about every week. I honestly think they need to change their diapers. Pampers are going to be out of some money, like me I switched brands and havent had problems with my childs diaper rash anymore. most parents will most likely do the same which means pampers will lose sales. i spend atleast 40 a month on diapers.

ok...you make no sense. if some kids can't wear pampers because they break out then the parents should switch to luvs or some other brand. some kids can't wear luvs because they break out but they do fine with pampers. i believe it's finding the right diaper for the kid and...CHANGE THEM ON A RIGOROUS BASIS. pretty simple solutions. we had some issues but we tried different brands until we found what worked for our kids.

Luckily, I took all the pampers with dry max back to the store before I put them on my son. I did not want to take the chance. This is not a few moms...This is alot of babies having trouble with these diapers. I'm insulted by pampers as a nurse and a mom, that it's just sensitive skin. There are too many babies having trouble with these diapers, just to be a diaper rash. Pampers needs to do the right thin

I read all these posts and LOLOLOL. How stupid, this much time spent on diapers. Change brands. My daughter couldn't wear any disposables, switched to cloth. Quit being lazy and use them. You save a fortune and no rash. Get a life, quit whining.

Don't let your babies wear diapers at all. Just put some plastic down and let them roam free. Or better yet, put up some temporary fencing out in the yard and let them get some fresh air and sunshine.

To the serious doubters (who attack rather than just argue a point)... I have seen pictures, edited for modesty, of some of the rashes that have been claimed to be caused by the Pampers Dry Max diapers. Most of the pictures I have seen are very obviously far beyond any typical diaper rash (though I have seen some claims that were obviously typical diaper rash). Any diaper that can cause such severe rash (or possible burn of any type) should not be on the market. Yes, parents can switch brands - but that it the simple half of it. The difficult half is doctor appointments, various medications, caring for a child who cannot sit or urinate without extreme pain.

Are there some parents crying wolf? Undoubtedly! But that doesn't mean that all of the claims are exaggerated or false, either. Pampers claims it has had on a "handful" of complaints. But they've also offered more specific figures - about 2 complaints per million diapers from 2 billion diapers sold (not including diapers gone unused or diapers returned). That's 4000 complaints. That's a lot of complaints in the 2 months that these diapers have been available. It's only fair to expect an investigation over this.

I happen to have had experience with Dry Max years ago - but, by law, I am not allowed to speak of what I experienced. But trust me, this is an issue that is, at very least, worth examining.

I really think that pampers should switch back to the normal cloth diapers because the fact that that baby had a chemical reaction to a diaper is really weird and it has to do with the diapers and I think that and I'm only 10!!

What kind of fool buys Pampers, anyway? They're the priciest on the market.
Why spend so much on something that is already detrimental to your child, for him/her to dump in?
I suppose, if we all cared more about our babies and our womanly bodies, we'd demand organic alternatives.

My daughter has always used pampers - and these new drymax ones for several months now. She has had skin sensitivities on other parts of her body, but nothing like this ever <knock on wood>. I'm happy with the new diapers so far. If she was to have a problem with them, I would just switch to another diaper. I would certainly complain to the proper authorities if the reaction was severe. The best way to let a company know you don't like or approve of their product - just don't use it.

Blisters and blood huh? I think if I could prove the diaper was the cause I would contact a lawyer
Prove it isn't an acid burn caused by loose stool. My son had an acid burn on his bottom caused by diarhea and it blistered and bled like this article is describing.

I took him to the doc and we got a steroid cream, and to use a warm, non-soapy washcloth instead of wipes until he was completely healed.

If your kid has a rash THAT bad take them to the doc to rule out yeast infection or acid burns before you blame the diaper based on somebody's facebook posting. Also, don't use wipes when the kid has a rash... that makes it worse.

If your doc indicates an allergic reaction, then you can blame the diaper.

Try changing your child more often and as soon as you notice. Especially if the diaper has more than just urine. Pretty simple concept.
Parents are too busy to use that kind of common sense.

I used Pampers on my daughter from the day she was born. She RARELY had diaper rashes with the old version. Once the new Pampers came out she started getting bad diaper rashes. Fortunately we are now potty training, so I don't have to worry about it anymore.

Nobody cares what diapers your kid uses. It's like religion, everyone has their own preference. If the new diapers are giving your kid a rash, switch!

I have a six week old and have only used pampers diapers and he has had a diaper rash that we can't get rid of. I am a nurse and have tried everything! I'm starting to wonder if I should try a different brand.

so small group of parents whose kids are obviously allergic to something in Pampers, why don't you switch to another brand or try cloth diapers. This is why I hate people!
That isn't a very nice thing to say. I have a 6 wk old and have a bunch of pampers from my baby shower. It didn't occur to me until now that it could be the diapers..but thanks for the understanding "butt man"!
