I take it back!

Monday, August 10th, 2009 by by

I’m sure you remember my review on Up & Up (Target brand) diapers from last month. If you haven’t read it, click here. I take it all, well most of it, back!

I bought a box of them (biggest box of size 3 contains 96 diapers) and I’ve used almost 3/4 of the box and had to throw out 10 so far. Why, you ask? Due to missing, half-attached and semi-attached tabs which make the diapers useless and I end up throwing my money away before it even gets pooped or peed on. I realize that things like this are certainly possible, even when purchasing named brand diapers. However, the difference I’ve learned is at least the named brand companies will reimburse you for their faulty product with (more…)

My husband just came downstairs after changing the baby’s diaper.

“You are not going to believe what is in this dipe,” he said, thrusting it at me.

My mind raced with possibilities, none of them particularly palatable, and I shrunk away from my husband’s offering.

He opened it up and presented it to me ceremoniously, a wide grin (more…)

From Pampers to Up & Up – a review

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009 by by

We have been a Pampers using family since  my son’s birth and they’ve always worked well for him. I have thought about trying store brand diapers, but I’ve been too afraid to try anything else in fear of other diapers not meeting expectations and ending up being a waste of money. The truth is that even with coupons and “sale” prices, it is near impossible to find great stockpile prices for Pampers these days. So, I finally bit the bullet this weekend and purchased a Jumbo pack of Up & Up (Target brand) diapers. The smaller packs are more money per diaper, but DH and I figured if things didn’t work out, we didn’t invest too much into them. For a quick price comparison, Pampers Jumbo packs have been on “sale” lately for $8.99-$9.99 and the packs have also downsized from 40 diapers for size 3, to 36 diapers. Add FL’s 6% sales tax to that and the price per Pampers diaper is $0.27-$0.29 for the new 36 size packs and $0.24-$0.27 per diaper for the old 40 size packs. Those prices make my skin crawl because, as a coupon freak, I know they are nowhere near a good deal. Even with the use of coupons, I still don’t consider it a good deal. Now, the Up & Up Jumbo pack has 40 diapers in it and is $6.29 (not a sale price). Once again, add FL’s 6% sales tax to that and the price per Up & Up diaper is $0.17. That’s $0.10+ cheaper than Pampers and a price I consider to be a good deal!

Now that your heads are spinning (more…)

My son is lacking a fluffy bum :(

I, the Queen of Cloth, have my son is disposables for the time being.  I came to the hard decision to use disposables on our quick trip to Tampa, FL.  We leave tomorrow morning but I am not willing to leave my diapers dirty in the pail so I recently changed him from his last cloth diaper to his first disposable for a few days.

We decided to buy Huggies Pure and Natural.  They are made with organic cotton and (more…)
