So, I do not like the new diaper design. The first thing I noticed is that when I bought the most recent package of Stage 2 diapers the quantity went from 48 to 40 yet the price was basically the same. I was really irritated but went ahead with the purchase since I didn't have a good alternative at the time.
Then I noticed the tabs are wider upon the first use. The other changes were less apparent. But in this package of new diapers I have had DAILY leaks. Both from the legs and up the back. My little girl is not the kind who frequently has blowouts so I was surprised. And the amount of poo in the diapers has not increased over the past few weeks. But the number of stains on her clothes and mine have. So I pulled one of the old style diapers that was in my diaper bag out so I could compare. The other visible differences are that the new diapers are more narrow and taller than the old style. I am guessing that maybe the elastic or something else has changed because you would think with a taller diaper there would be less opportunity for leaks up the back... but not this time. I have had leaks occasionally and have been accepting of this because it was as I said, occasionally. But now it's daily and I am having to stain treat most everything my daughter wears as well as some of my clothes too. I am mostly complaining about the poo leaks, but we have had about as many wet leaks too. I am really disappointed in this product now and am looking at alternatives because this level of performance is unacceptable.
I have been a loyal 7th Gen customer of many products over the past several years, and I didn't even look into any other diaper alternatives other than cloth before my daughter was born. Is there any chance that you will bring the old style and quantity back? I am sure I am not the only consumer having real issues with the new diapers.
