Pampers has Cynthia Rowley designed diapers and Huggies has diapers that look like blue jeans. Â I have to ask if designer diapers are really necessary for parents and for the babies themselves. Â As a mother of two teenage boys, which means diapers were used between 1992 and 1996, the only thing I cared about was the ability to absorb what needed to be absorbed and keep a rash from developing. Â Huggies had come out with cloth-like diapers with velcro and that was wonderful. Â But I do not remember my child ever caring if there was or was not a character on his diaper.
When potty training, character undies were exciting to pick out for the new big boy to wear, but diapers were always under the clothes that the boys were wearing. Â Which brings me to another point. Â Do we really want to see a bunch of babies with wet soggy and lumpy diapers with denim designs or floral designs? Â Do we really want to know the condition of the pretty diaper by sight through the designer labels?
Who are these designer diapers for anyway? Â I believe it is more for the designer and not for the parent who after paying for diapers every week for 2-3+ years per child could really care less about what they look like but rather what they cost. Â The price for these designer diapers will be a whopping $6 more per package at Target. Maybe we should just be satisfied with a good diaper that absorbs really well!
