  • There's a chemical in them that is causing the rashes. They have been recalled due to this reason.

  • Really? I didn't know they were being recalled... My DS has been using them, and he's notorious for rashes, and hasn't once gotten them. He's been using it for a few months now. I personally love them.

  • They didn't cause a rash in my little ones (I've heard that whole recall thing was an urban legend), but I hate them. I think they are flimsy and crunchy and don't work as well as Target's Up & Up, Walgreens generic, or the Sam's Club Member Mark. Pampers really messed up in my opinion.

  • All I use are Pampers, but we used the Pampers Sensitive when my son was really little and then switched to Pampers Cruisers. We did use the Dry Max once when they were out of Cruisers in his size - no rashes, no problems - and they worked great for us.

  • HORRIBLE DIAPERS!! They leak like crazy. Especially if you baby is breasfed, the poo is runny and blows out EVERYTIME! Worst diaper ever!

  • I love the new Pampers Dry Max. And know that Pampers investigated these rashes with top pediatricians. And also know that people at Pampers use Pampers Dry max on their own babies, so they want to protect their kids and would not do anything to harm their own kids.
    There are so many reasons for Diaper Rash, and lots of people want to blame the diaper, but it's not the case. If you liked the old Pampers, the same ingrediants are in the new ones, so if your baby was allergic to something in Pampers, then they would have had that reaction with the Pampers without Dry Max.
    We use them and have no problems with them, no leaks and no rash.
