Dear Huggies size 1-2: I hate you with the fury of 1000 suns

Huggies Snug & Dry Size 1-2

After purchasing these diapers disappointment set in. Our Costco 1-2 diapers had done the job, but after our friend Chris changed Maggie out we discovered shortly thereafter there was a couch now soaked in hot baby lava.

Were Huggies Size 1-2 to blame?

We thought at first perhaps Chris didn’t know what he was doing, but two days later in a mostly empty diaper we had another containment failure in which pee streamed up Maggie’s back like some vaguely horrible Japanese fetish video. At least this time it wasn’t brown baby jelly.

Still the thought was that the diaper was on incorrectly as, well, we’ve been a bit tired lately and prone to make mistakes.

This morning I was wide awake, changed Maggie from a somewhat wet d-dipe into a fresh and clean one. For some reason it didn’t exactly go on right on the first try, so I re-worked it and checked the seals and made sure it was perfect before I was going to leave Maggie with itMomma Kim to go to work.

The answer is yes. Huggies size 1-2 were to blame

Laying around with the crib convict pre-work, I smelled something foul, fouler, (I usually wait for a face as this carpet ripper can fart up a storm,) and finally heard a drop.

She was on a baby-containment towel on the bed, but as with any liquid sound it sent a bit of a chill down my spine with the prospect of having to clean up for the next hour to minimize baby fluid intrusion.

Sure enough, she had a brown baby blowout. This time I decided I was going to poovestigate and find out what the hell was going wrong as usually I have to be completely reactionary and get things cleaned up asa pee.

Digging through baby’s splatter platter, the diaper was on and secure and as tight as it should have been, but the leak lock technology they claim to have simply wasn’t working.  While I thought it might be due to her being too small for this 1-2 and perfect size for the Costco 1-2 that works, and investigation on her moo-shu poo-drenched leg showed that the diaper was pressed against her skin tight enough to leave a small indent.

So yeah, saddled with ~200 remaining bad diapers that don’t indicate wetness except by streaming it out the leg.

So yeah, there was my morning.

They’re unavailable on Amazon, and rocking a 3.1 rating on Babies R Us with basically the same complaints I list here being the standard. Evidently the size 1-2 and the size 4 are the only Huggies that get a lot of complaints, so it’s probably not brand-wide.

on a side note, if you like the poocano onesie, you can find that here. Also for the love of your eyes, do not search the internet for “poocano.”

So yeah, these diapers are useless as far as I can tell. I’ll try Huggies again later on, but these claim to do a lot and just don’t seem to cover it.
