I use cloth most of the time, but I still use a disposable or two at night. I have a bone to pick with the diaper companies, and it is this: stop plastering baby versions of cartoon characters on your stupid disposables. My baby is only three months old and I guarantee you that a fat pastel baby Elmo printed on a paper diaper is about as exciting to him as a Don Draper themed diaper would be. But then, I might actually be interested in a Don Draper diaper whereas the sight of baby Mickey and friends hurts my teeth.
Diapers are expensive enough but you have to tack on licensing those obnoxious patronizing characters too? I mean if we were talking about big boy training britches, then maybe I can see the appeal of not soaking Dora the Explorer absorbent undies. But these are diapers intended for humans so young they wouldn’t really be able to visually perceive a circus in their own living room.
I guarantee you there is not a parent alive who is like “oh these diapers have Baby Disney characters on them. I want to buy them more than plain diapers because they’re so cute.” Cartoon characters on clothing is a little 90’s middle school. But to baby-ify it? Grooooosss.
You know what I like? Cute patterns. Cool solids. Plain, pure un bleached white.
In short, these characters are not enhancing my diapering experience.
