Uproar Over New Pampers Dry Max Swaddlers and Cruisers

Pampers Swaddlers Diapers with DryMax for your New Baby
If you're diapering a little one, you've probably heard that Pampers has come out with a new line of "Dry Max" Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers, replacing all of their regular Swaddlers and Cruisers with these "new and improved" products. I was pretty annoyed to find that I couldn't purchase the old product at all anymore--we just figured out that normal Swaddlers fit our baby best! And what's more troubling is that the new Pampers have been arriving in the old boxes, so many parents weren't aware they were purchasing a new product.

Well, here's more to perhaps be troubled about: a page has popped up on Facebook calling for the return of the old Pampers, with one of the reasons being a high incidence of severe diaper rash (check this blog for a photo if you're not squeamish; the Facebook discussion about rash is HERE.)

If you hang around the discussion boards of the FB page, you'll read a lot of interesting info about the switch, including a response from Pampers North America VP Jodi Allen which does not seem to be satisfying many mamas.

However, the ladies at Chatter Scene have a discussion going right now, though, and many are having no problems at all with the new product. I've got a HUGE box of Pampers Swaddlers due to be delivered to my door any day now, so I'll be sure to tell you my experience with the new product... even though I'm not certain if its worth taking the chance with Andrew's precious bottom!

Let me know what you think of this new Pampers too!
