Lesley Warren, who lives in Toronto, has been a loyal Pampers customer right since her daughter birth and used Pampers Baby Dry diapers for both of her children until that moment when she saw a terrible rash on her baby boy’s body.
Earlier this summer, when Warren picked up her son from daycare she noticed a painful rash on his bottom. The red mark looked just like a burn ran the length of the diaper liner.
Only then the woman noticed that diapers look way more different than before. When she went to Facebook to look for similar situations, she came across a post from another woman whose baby had also suffered a terrible reaction after using Pampers diapers.
She also attached a picture of the rush and it looked the same as the rush that Warren’s son had suffered.
Natalie, the author of that Facebook post, revealed later that her 8-months old twins had developed the rash after using Pampers diapers. “It was like a burn. There was a clear outline where the skin had broken out and started bleeding,” said woman.
The rash appeared when she started using diapers of a larger size for one of her twin daughters. That’s why she decided to change the brand and after she did her baby’s skin improved, though it took about two weeks to clear up completely.
One more mom from Toronto, Christina Couto, added that the new Pampers design was the reason for all those problems.
Sarah Pasquinucci, a spokesperson for P&G Baby Care, replied that there was no new material used in new diapers, though there still was one little change:
“Rather, we have improved the diaper with Extra Absorb Channels, which has been the design in our Pampers Swaddlers and Cruisers diapers used and trusted by millions of families around the world, including Canada. The channels change the shape of the absorbent layer to help lock wetness away from baby’s skin and distribute wetness more evenly, which keeps baby drier.”
