Has this Happened to your Kid's Diaper?
Lately, some of Sidekicks nighttime diapers seem to fall apart in the morning when I take them off. (I think perhaps "fall apart" is a bit of understatement!) As soon as I undid the tabs, Sidekick was covered in the "gel" and it just all fell out of the sides. I've always kind of blown this off, but today I decided to take a picture and make a phone call to the company. (I hadn't moved anything except Sidekick):
When I called the company, I was reassured this is something that is not acceptable by company standards (no shit!) and that the "gel" has been tested and is not harmful to my child (that's good to know!). Interestingly enough, the person with whom I spoke didn't seem shocked that I was telling her this. To be nice, the company will mail me some coupons. I appreciate that. I really do as we all know how expensive diapers are.
Of course I went on with my day and never threw the diaper away until I got Sidekick ready for his bath tonight. Oops! It was quite a mess to clean up because this "gel" is like a wet powder that kind of clumps together and seems to just spread everywhere. I'm still pretty amazed this happened!
