So you carry reusable bags, drive a hybrid and your compost is the fullest on the block, but are you doing the whole cloth diaper thing? We’ve talked to lots of moms who say they were set on cloth until the whole baby-who-doesn’t-want-to-leave-mommy’s-arms thing happened and laundry, subsequently, fell by the wayside. So, while we advocate cloth for any mom with the willpower, we think new Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers with Dry Max offer a very reasonable solution for mommies with a little less gumption. They contain 10 percent less material by weight than the traditional Pampers and are 20 percent thinner, meaning more room in the diaper bag and less bulk on babe’s behind.
Dry Max Swaddlers and Cruisers, starting at $10, Pampers.
UPDATE: There have been complaints that these diapers have caused rashes, and a Health Canada investigation was launched in May. Procter & Gamble has dismissed the claims, but there have been no additional details form Health Canada. We have a call in to Health Canada at the moment, and will post when we hear back. In the mean time, the public can contact Health Canada at 1-866 225-0709.
