My toddler and his Pampers Baby-Dry Pants
Hi everyone! I’m Frances and I’m a Pampers Mommy. I’ve been one since 2010 when my first child was born. I was also a Pampers Mom Ambassador twice—that’s how much my family and I love Pampers. Now (six years going strong!), I’m still a Pampers Mommy because I still have one baby in diapers, my third and youngest son, Piero. He’s always used Pampers but this is the first time we tried pants. Why? Because we’re hoping it will help him with toilet-training!
But first, let me tell you what Pampers Baby-Dry Pants is. It’s a Pampers diaper with all the characteristics I love in a dependable diaper:
- It has Magic Gel that instantly traps wetness and turns it into a dry gel. Wetness can’t escape at all so my baby stays completely dry. For up to 12 hours! I’ve tested this. It’s true!
- The diaper isn’t made of plastic, allowing for air to circulate. My baby’s skin breathes, remains cool, and doesn’t get hot and sweaty.
- It is super soft! It’s even infused with lotion! All the materials are comfy to my baby’s tender skin—no scratchy, bulky, sharp anything. My kid’s skin won’t get irritated hooray!
- The waistband is soft and flexible so even if my baby is super active, his diaper won’t constrict his movements or snap open.
Speaking of waistbands, the Pampers Baby-Dry Pants is everything I love about the regular Pampers diapers except the Pants version doesn’t use sticky tape. In fact, it doesn’t have tape at all. It’s a pair of pants! Well, short pants. High-waist briefs.
So now that I’ve established that the Baby-Dry Pants is just like any Pampers diaper, I want to share why we switched. My Piero is 2 years old and I figured we can nudge him towards toilet-training. There are a list of signs that point to potty readiness (see BabyCenter.com for the complete list [http://www.babycenter.com/0_potty-training-readiness-checklist_4384.bc]). One of the signs is the baby can pull up and pull down his own pants. Piero has started doing this at bath time—he pulls down his pants. But he can’t pull down his diaper because the Pampers Baby-Dry Diaper that we used uses tape. So we chose the Baby-Dry Pants to help him along!
At first, Piero disliked the Baby-Dry Pants. He couldn’t understand why he had to put his feet into the leg holes, like with real pants. So we had a bit of a battle for about a week. But he soon got used to it, especially since the Pants seems to suit his super active toddler lifestyle best. Whatever he does, that Pants will stay put. No matter what!
As for taking them off, it’s pretty easy. Just remove like you’d do with pants. However, if there’s poop in the diaper, the stretchy sides have seams that you can easily tear apart. It’s crazy! This Pants diaper is so strong, it can withstand a toddler’s kalikutan, but the seams make tearing it apart quick and easy.
The only thing I found that I didn’t like about the Pampers Baby-Dry Pants is I can’t seal a soiled diaper, which I do conveniently with the tapes of the regular diaper. Other than that, Piero and I are really happy with the pants version of the best diaper in the world! Try it, mommies!
