I was first introduced to Pampers Swaddlers Diapers in the hospital after giving birth to Michael. The very first thing that became my favorite part was how wonderful these diapers smell. It's a mommie mood enhancer. The nurses at my hospital where quite cleaver too...they make ice packs out of these diapers for you after giving birth if you have to recover from tearing and having stiches. I was completely impressed because it was so soft and worked so well for something it was not even intended for! They worked great.

I got to take the rest of the used diapers home for Michael (as they usually do). I bought one package when I ran out after being home but they are a bit pricey so I didn't keep buying them. Anyhow--I bought one package of these yummy diapers to await little Madison when we bring her home. I have already opened them, put them in the diaper stacker, and in the diaper caddy that I am in love with.

Well...in the process of doing laundry one of these diapers somehow ended up in the wash. However, I didn't know how durable these diapers are until I went to put the laundry in the dryer. I could not believe my eyes when I found the diaper! It was still in ONE piece. It was completely soaked but dry and never tore anywhere. Grant it, I wash most our clothing on the gentle cycle-however, most diapers would have been in pieces everywhere in the wash machine, or so I think, and I really don't want to test it out if you can imagine what that would be like. So, I had to take pictures and these pictures are worth showing and it didn't even wet my hard Wood flooring while taking pictures so I know it will protect clothing from getting wet etc..

Pros--They are the most soft diapers I have ever used. They hold so much better than other diapers I have used with no worries of leakage etc... They smell so good and when they do soil the gel does not crystallize leaving anything behind on your babies skin. If you are like me you soak up every penny you can out of a diaper. Even though I love these diapers, I can't say they are going to be an ongoing purchase. You get less diapers than other packages but they are yummy to start out with :)

Just look at these pictures after going through the wash. I am so impressed.

    Interesting. I do like them but too cheap to buy them. You know I used cloth diapers for a while when Millie was born. I used them on Lizzie and Millie. A lot of work but saved A LOT of money and really good for their skin.

    I used Pampers on all my newborns for one of the very reasons you stated...the "Baby" scent! I loved it and with my heightened sense of smell during pregnancy it did do my heart good as I anticipated their arrival. Of course, I too was too cheap to keep putting Pampers on them as they grew! :) Luvs were always the best for mine...cheap and they weren't leaky! :) That is amazing about their endurance in the washer!

    Swaddlers have been my favorite too. I just snagged a bunch off of Craig's List from a mom who couldn't use them due to her baby's reactions.

    I have found that by waiting for sales and adding coupons, I can get the Pampers for cheap enough to make them worth it.

    For that reason, everyone keeps asking me why I want to use cloth for Babin when I know how to buy diapers so cheaply!

    yeah, they were great for Azi when he was little bitty those first few weeks. Then he got FAT. :) So, having tried almost every brand there is, the P'Swaddlers are best for smaller curvier tushies. when we started buying on our own (we were extremely blessed by others giving us a long supply) we did Luv's and then went to Parent's Choice. Yep....that's how cheap we are. :)
