Is your LO in Pampers?

Is your baby in Pampers Dry Max? Do you know of anyone whose babies are experiencing rash and in Pampers?

If anyone is having their baby in Pampers and baby is experiencing a very bad rash it is highly likely a chemical burn caused by Pampers Dry Max. Thought I'd alert you moms before more babies get hurt. This Dry Max feature is new from Pampers and can be found on all sizes of Swaddlers and Cruisers, if you have been using Swaddlers/Cruisers on your older kids years ago, these are not the same. Unfortunately the manufacturer P&G is not taking this seriously and will put the blame on teething, wrong size diaper, diet, and a whole lot of unrelated causes, and may offer you coupons to buy even more Pampers. Please do not take the bait, discontinue use immediately.

If this sounds incredible please take a moment to view this non-profit facebook group:

it has graphic images of how rashes look like and tips on what you could do to ease your precious little one's suffering. Read actual correspondences between Pampers officials, P&G CEO and moms like you and me. Read their responses. If they sound familiar you're not alone. Learn how Pampers is erasing negative comments and complaints on their own website and on their major retailers websites. Discover how it is suspected that Pampers staff are writing most of the positive reviews to counter the hundreds of negative reviews DAILY.

I spoke with a mom today and she had NO IDEA her baby's red welts were due to chemical burns from Pampers Dry Max, the pediatrician has prescribed strong and expensive medication. Since switching brands she noticed the redness has been subsiding. These rashes are not regular diaper rashes they are far more widespread, bright red, sometimes blisters weeping with pus or blood and causing intense pain.

I'm not here to hijack this group. I'm not here to promote another diaper brand. I'm here to forewarn you moms, nobody in their right mind should want to put a diaper that has caused so much agony other babies on their own baby. Don't get me wrong I am not bashing Pampers for a lousy quality diaper. If at all I was a fan when I bought Swaddlers for my newborn and loved how it performed, but their diapers are different now, no more mesh liner and no longer soft.

I have 10 month old b/g twins and used swaddlers when they were first born, thats what they started out in the hospital, then we started baby dry and now we use the new dry max cruisers. neither one of them have ever had a diaper rash.

Wow!!! We used Pampers swaddlers for the first two months of my daughter's life. She had horrid rashes and issues. We were on the medicated ointment for the whole time. I then tried cloth and it went away. We now only have issues when she has a secret poop (one that is very small and not very smelly so it goes un-noticed for over a half hour. It is also ton's cheaper and easier than dragging those huge boxes around.

Thanks for the heads up..This makes daughter has been in pampers since day 1 and we didn't have any problems until recently. Her rash isn't as bad as some of the pictures, but it does look like one of them. I ran out of pampers and I am using some huggies right now, so we will see if that helps.

Pampers is the only brand my son can wear. Huggies breaks him out in welts. I just switched to Dry Max, so I'll be keeping an eye on him, but the other Pampers diapers have never broken him out.

Actually my daughter is 2.5 and has been in Pampers all along. When we have tried a different brand is when she ends up with a rash (Huggies, Kirkland, Walmart brand) so I have stuck with Pampers. Maybe I just have a very hardy little girl?!

I just read that article. That's interesting. We haven't had any problems with burning, but the moisture has been an issue. I wonder if something got into a select amount of diapers and that's why they didn't show up as problems during testing.

You're welcome Sufia! Please also inform your child's doctor so s/he'll know better when another child who wears Pampers sees him for a similar condition.

Thankyou. My baby got the same rash as the others using drymax. I had no idea why was she having those rashes. Thankyou very much for sharing this with us. I am so greatful.
