Diapers. An item many parents quickly find a preferred brand. Once that diaper you find works for both your baby and your wallet it is hard to be swayed. Pampers, a brand synonymous with diapers have come up with a new line that focuses on "thoughtfully-selected materials".
Disclosure: I received this product free for sampling. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The Pure Difference
0% Chlorine Bleaching
Pampers Pure diapers are made from "premium cotton, soft plant-based and other thoughtfully-selected materials".
Even the packaging is made from more than 33% recycled materials.
You may or may not know this about me (though I think at this point you might) I am not one to seek out "all natural" or "organic" items 100% of the time. I think the benefits to these items are great but often times the price points make them more of a luxury than an every day use.
Review: Pampers Pure Protection Diapers
These Pampers Pure Protection diapers are not as soft as I would have expected them to be. They are made of a better material than their regular line of diapers however, to my finger tips they feel rougher. Also, the tabs are ripping on them easier than any diaper I have ever had.
The designs on these diapers are super cute (I love otters!) and the sizing seems to run larger than other size 3s I have put on my baby.
Let's talk price. For comparison sake, I searched online and found the following:
Pampers Pure: 92 count $34.99 from Target (size 3)
Pampers Swaddlers: 78 count $24.99 from Target (size 3)
Pampers Swaddlers: 136 count $39.99 from Target (size 3)
To break it down the Pure costs $0.38 a diaper and the Swaddlers costs $0.32 and $0.29 respectively. That is quite a difference in price per diaper.
While I can appreciate the finer fibers and the sustainable ways this product is made, the price per diaper paired with how broken tads I've encountered just do not add up to me purchasing these diapers in the future.
