Pampers Cruisers with DryMax

How many of you have tried the new Pampers Cruisers with DryMax technology? I received a sample from Vocalpoint recently, so I have tried them and wanted to share my thoughts on them with all of you.

They are more expensive than other diapers which is a huge drawback for me. When Sydney was a newborn, I splurged for Pampers because they held in messes better than other diapers, but now that she's older I can use almost any type of diaper. I use cloth diapers during the day when we are home because they are easy and save us a lot of money. Here lately Huggies has been giving out a lot of $3 off coupons, which makes for really cheap diapers when paired with the CVS deals over the last month or so. So, what I'm saying is that I'd rather save the money than splurge on diapers. Not everyone agrees with this, and I understand that, but I wanted to put it out there.

Yes, they are thin enough to fit in your purse, but how many of you carry diapers in your purse? I pretty much always carry my diaper bag. Sometimes, I throw my keys and wallet in the diaper bag and leave my purse...but I rarely leave the diaper bag. You never know when you're going to need a snack, cup, wipe, etc. If you do leave your diaper bag a lot, then you will probably love these diapers! They are extremely thin.

Durability and Use
They are very soft diapers-probably not as soft as swaddlers, but pretty close. They fit pretty snug, but still seem to sag just like other diapers. The sagging doesn't bother me, but I know it does bother some parents. They held a lot without getting very bulky, which was nice. I do worry that this may cause some parents may forget to change their child as often (it didn't look or feel wet until it was VERY wet) which may result in diaper rashes in some kids.

Overall, I did really like these diapers. I think they are setting a new standard. I just don't like the price, but I'm a very frugal mom, so what can I say? If you've tried these, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
