“Pampers were my favorite brand of diapers when my kids were babies and toddlers,” says Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH, a mom of three sons, a family physician, and coauthor of The Mommy MD Guide to the Toddler Years. “The cheaper brands just weren’t the same. They leaked, and they were scratchy. Instead of saving money buying cheaper diapers, I usually ended up wasting the money I had spent on them. I’m perfectly happy to buy generic versions of some items, but it just didn’t pay to scrimp on diapers.”
A toddler on the move can’t be encumbered by a bulky, restrictive diaper. Pampers Cruisers have a three-way fit that allows for optimal movement while keeping the diaper leak free for up to 12 hours. A 27-pack of size 4 Cruisers costs around $10 at drugstores, supermarkets, and discount stores. Visit Pampers.com for more information.
