Innovation gone wrong!
Reviewed in Canada on December 7, 2021
I saw these come on to the market, and being the pioneers we are, we decided to try them. First off, these diapers are your standard cruisers that we all know, love and trust… but with one little quirk. No tape! And while I can see the appeal to quickly slide busy body toddlers and newly mobile infants into diapers, there are a few drawbacks to this type of diaper that makes it less desirable in some instances.
- Pros -
* Easy to slide onto busy body babies, no taping required.
* Same absorbency and reliability of standard Pampers cruisers.
- Cons -
* Not easy to apply butt paste with diapers already on.
* Must remove pants/shoes to put diapers on.
* No tape to wrap up diaper securely, especially after a [wet] poop.
- Conclusion -
The thing that should make this diapers great and easy to use is also it’s Achilles heal. Since there’s no tape there’s no easy way to secure this diaper after a change, especially a wet poop… It’s messy! And also because it’s a pull up style diaper you cannot change these diapers on the go when your LOs are wearing shoes and pants. Everything comes off, so road trips, mall days or just being out, is not a treat to change em. Another challenge I have is putting on butt paste, it’s quite a hassle! you either have to stick your hand into the diaper to apply the paste after it’s on or put the paste on the baby then try sliding them into the diaper without making a mess especially on the waistband and eventually on the clothes.
- Recommendation -
I wouldn’t rush to buy pull up style until my kid is closer to potty training and if he no longer needs butt paste or had fairly solid poops. Until then I’ll switch back to regular good old tape style diapers. They may be a little more tedious to put on. But they do have their benefits.
