I have always used either pampers snugglers, walmarts brand (parents choice), or targets brand (up & up) for my son (8 months ols). recently i was given a box of huggies lil snugglers, so i decided to try them. i noticed they were not very absorbent, the lining always busted and my son frequently had gel on his diaper area. one morning i had enough when i changed his diaper first thing from waking, and noticed his clothes were wet. when i took them off, he was covered from his bottom to his shoulders, front to back, in the gel. i was disgusted and immediately bathed my child.
the biggest issue, though, is that around the same time i started using the huggies and having this issue, my son started to get a diaper rash. i treated it with different ointments as instructed by his pediatrician, but nothing worked. we eventually came to the conlusion that it was a yeast rash, and by this time it was so bad that it hurt for him to potty. he would only go a little bit and cry to have his diaper changed, and after i changed his diaper, would immediately go a little more, and repeat the process till he was done. i eventually got the rash to clear up, but now his father and i are battling it out for custody now claiming i am neglectful. it infuriates me that these diapers have not only caused my son to suffer with this ongoing rash, but also for the legal battle he is now being drug through.
i made a report with kimberly clark, and they offered me a voucher for more diapers! i refused, and accepted some vouchers for whipes instead, but the damage is irreparable and detrimental.
i want to know, has anyone had a problem with the gel bursting out and/or a yeast rash?
