    I have several friends that swore Pampers are the best brand of disposable diapers for kids; however, after I had my own children I found out otherwise. They worked fine for one daughter, but the other would become soaked within an hour and I would have to change her constantly. Pampers didn't work me so when they came out with Dry Max, I wasn't about to be fooled by their advertising. cleverlychanging(dot)com

    I loved Pampers for 4+ years. Even when we used cloth diapers during the day, we used Pampers at night. I gave all my friends Pampers when they had new babies. I swore by them.

    Then, my 2 year old got a rash. That was over 6 months ago, and we are still dealing with it. I have felt a range of emotions from anger to frustration to guilt for not figuring out the cause of the rash sooner. I think if Pampers would just own up to their choices, I would be done with them and move on. It's the way that they treat their customers and the insinuations they make along with the blog articles they pass along that confirm my decision to stop buying Pampers and not consider Luvs. I won't buy from a company that treats its customers the way Pampers has treated many moms over the past year.

    As a mom who's son now has scars on his diaper area (and not just his bum) I wish I had never tried the cruisers. I thought I was getting a deal by buying the package of diapers that I did... you see it came with a fancy cloth diaper pouch... I only bought ONE PACKAGE of these diapers...and sadly I used almost the entire package of diapers before I realized what it was doing to my son. It is my fault that he will have scars from the chemical burns that he suffered from the diapers. It is my fault that I did not realize that his rash was not because of anything else... I will have to live with that....
    Shame on you Pampers.... my own mommy blog on this subject is coming soon....
    Thank yo

    As a registered dietitian, I’d say the comparison of diapers to high fructose corn syrup is inappropriate. Aside from the obvious, a sugar is a sugar, whether it’s honey, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), table sugar, or fruit juice. All contain 4 calories per gram.
    Food manufacturers removed HFCS because of consumer pressure. Consumers who, unfortunately, didn’t know sugars are quite similar. Reformulated products now have sugar, honey or some other caloric sweetener. From a nutritional or health point of view there’s no benefit to the new items.
    Let’s stick with the facts. My work as a consultant to the food industry (like the Corn Refiners Association), and a college professor uses facts to support messages. Facts like those above are one illustration. There is no reason to demonize high fructose corn syrup. In 2008, the American Medical Association concluded “high fructose corn syrup does not appear to contribute to obesity more than other caloric sweeteners.” You shouldn’t
