My son (1 month old @ the time) wore these diapers within 24 hrs-he broke out bloody blisters/rashes. I've been using (discontinued now) the New Baby Swaddlers diapers in the first month, but he's been staying at my inlaws. My motherinlaw had the max dry diapers there and used them on him. I was out running errands and got back and heard him screamming. She panicked as she was wiping his bottom. The wiping hurt him so much that his face was red and tears were streamming down his cheeks-it was awful. She said the only different thing Im doing different are the diapers but she thought I've used too. I told her I had them stocked in his closet but haven't opened them yet. So after we got home, my husband emailed a complaint to the Proctor Gamble regarding this. This wasn't a typical diaper rash. After 48 hrs, using regular diapers-it got better with lots of diaper rash ointment to prevent more redness. That was unreal and what was freaky about it that we weren't the only ones complaining.
These diapers have chemicals in it to handle wetness more and made thinner to make more room. I was outraged when I heard that April of this year was the last month of discontinuing the New Baby Swaddlers b/c more moms are buying the Max Dry ones. Plus, Sensitive compares to the New Baby but only has it in Size 1 and 2. My son @ almost 6 mos. of age wears a size 3 now so I have to get the Baby Dry that feels like paper. Apparently, the Max Dry doesn't affect all babies. I just wished they wouldnt' discontinue the Swaddlers New Baby and let the parents decide what is right for the babies not the comapany.
