Diaper Review

I read up on quite a few reviews on diapers, so I just thought I'll share my thoughts with mummies, current, new and future hehe.

1-The first diaper we tried was Drypers newborn. OKlah. Not bad at all. The price was reasonable, around 50 sen per piece I think. Why Drypers? Ntah ek. Mungkin pasal itu saja pampers newborn yang kami jumpa kot? But only bought one newborn pack and one size S. I hated the plastic tapes. Woke Emma up at every diaper change. And Emma had severe rashes at her diaper area. So we changed to...

2-Huggies Ultra. Its clinically proven (they claim) to help prevent diaper rash, and prevent it did! Emma's rashes cleared up almost immediately, also with the help of Dr.Siva. Haha see, I told you I like him. But Huggies Ultra ni sangatlah mahalnya, sekeping hampir RM1.00. I think it's more expensive than Mamy Poko, but only by a few sen. So at this time, we alternated between this and...

3-Mamy Poko. The first time I tried Mamy Poko, I hated it because I felt that it was so thin compared to Huggies Ultra! But after a few tries, I thought they were OK. And their sizes were a bit bigger than Huggies Ultra. Tapi lama-lama rasa macam mahal sangat kedua-dua diapers ni, so we tried...

4-Pampers All Night. Why Pampers? Because everyone seemed to call diapers Pampers kan, so I felt that it had a good reputation, hehe. Butttt I hated Pampers because of their plastic cover. The other diapers had cloth like outer covers. And they had plastic tapes just like drypers. Otherwise I felt that they did just fine. And they're not so expensive, macam harga Drypers kot? One packet was enough. Then we tried..

5-Huggies Dry Comfort. Ahhh... this one I love. And Emma's butt seems to love this as well. And Zufri's pocket. Hahaha. They can be quite pricey if you don't know where to look. At GiAnt its RM47.90, carre4 is RM51.00 but at lovable Tesco its only RM35.00! Banyak OK beza! Jadi harganya hanya plus minus 58 sen sekeping (compared to 73 sen in Giant!). These little-little expenditures really add up eh. Oh but that's not the end of our diaper experiments. We then tried..

6-Huggies Dry. This one's much cheaper than No.5, and much thinner too. I didn't like this as much. Rasa macam bontot Emma terkepam. Hehe. Then we tried..

7-Tesco Value Diapers! Yup. Generic brand, huh? Tapi pelekat dia plastik. At least outer layer dia breathable cloth. Tapi pelakt dia plastik. Haha. Sangat mementingkan pelekat. Jadi kami kembali ke..

No. 5, Huggies Dry Comfort. Good, in my humble opinion. But I have to say, everytime I go back to JB or SP, I will surprisingly forget to bring Emma's diapers so we always end up buying Mamy Poko Pull Up Pants. Tak tahu kenapa.

But that's all in the past. Emma's a partially green baby, because she wears mostly cloth diapers now. I'll post a review on cloth diapers some other day, OK?

Going off tangent now, Kak Peachy's 37 weeks yesterday! Woot! (I never say woot in real life. I wonder why I use it in my writings? Hmm..) Tak sabar menunggu kelahiran anak buah yang ketiga.

Tomorrow we're going swimming! Yay! Will post pictures tomorrow.

hmm.. tasneem pakai sume brand huggies (not a green baby huhuh). utk jalan pakai huggies ungu, tido malam pakai huggies merah. pemakaian harian/sianh huggies biru. kitorg senang je, ikut kaler cover dia. cuma, baru2 utk jalan pakai huggie pull up pants. senang nk tukar, tp kalau dia berak susah la sikit nak tukar. heheheheheh
next baby nak tukar pakai cloth diaper, cuma dok pk boleh ke bbsitter dia nak guna cloth diaper tu sbb kalau boleh xmo nak susahkan dia byk2.
