Huggies / new huggies gold unisex nappies

1 Johannesburg, South Africa Review updated:

Good Day

My son has been reacting to the new unisex Huggies Gold nappies for 3 days in a row, he has been getting a new rash (pimples) from his lower back to his bum and inner thighs - next to his genitals ever since I started using this product. I even tried using the older pull-ups for boys that I had and the rash is not going away. It is extremely painful and itchy and very irritating for him and myself as his mother who's sleep has been disturbed for the past few nights.

    I'm not too happy with the new huggies gold unisex either. I have been using the one for girls since a few months after my baby was born as I found it to be better than every other brand of nappies. Now she is just over a year old and I find that the material in the 'new and improved' nappies are very much stiffer and plastic, and I can feel the shaped part around her thighs of the nappy to be too short with a deeper inward shape and is always messed when she goes number 2 and is wettish to the touch when number 1. This is leaking through the sides onto her tights. Very disappointing. And yes, the size is correct and is not loose fitting. The previous Huggies gold for girls was perfect. No idea why it was changed. Frustrating... Need to find a new brand unfortunately.

    New huggies unisex not good at baby gets wet fast the old huggies gold for girls were supergood I used them for 4 years without any complaints my baby stayed dry the whole night and even if the diaper was full the baby will be dry underneath.

    Please bring back the old huggies gold because there seems to be no improvement instead the quality is poor, I used to recommend huggies gold to other moms but now i need to find a new better brand.

    To Whom It May Concern

    After quite a bit of deliberation i decided to forge ahead with this e-mail. I've always been a 'Huggies mom' and have exclusively purchased Huggies Gold for both my sons (eldest just turned 8 and youngest 18 months). I've also always recommended Huggies to other (new and seasoned) parents however since Huggies Gold reverted back to unisex nappies I've not had one good / dry day with my baby. ☹️
    I find that long before the nappie is saturated my boy is wet around his middle. It is not just leaking at the top but the whole nappy seems to get wet. We now go through twice as manny clothes, not to mention nappies, as he just does not seem to stay dry anymore. The nights are especially bothersome as I now need to change him at least once around midnight and then he STILL wakes up wet.
    He is 'n big baby and currently already on nr 5 hence I can not even try a bigger size.
    Very unhappy with this situation as I am now forced to try a bunch of other nappies. This is not only an expensive exercise but extremely inconvenient. I dont know what you did but whatever it is; it is NOT working for me.

    Unfortunately I do not have of a choice as but to change brands as the new Huggies Gold just dont seem cut it.

    Very unhappy mom
