Did my title get your attention? Good. Please keep reading. This isn’t going to be a typical, light-hearted post. I hate that the introduction of my brand new nephew is going to be marred with what I write below, but I know that many of the readers of this blog are parents of young children – children who are still wearing diapers, children who may or may not be affected by the latest Pampers technology.
Earlier this year, Pampers came out with a new technology that supposedly keeps babies dryer and mommies happier. This new “Dry Max” formula, found in the Swaddlers and Cruisers styles, has done everything but keep babies dry and mommies happy. This new formula is causing chemical burns, blisters, rashes and wounds. Why are these diapers still on the shelves? Don’t ask Procter and Gamble – they’ll just tell you it’s a normal, run-of-the-mill diaper rash.
My sister has given me permission to post these photos and write about this issue. The best way to get the word out and prevent this from happening to other innocent children is to spread the word. I ask that you please tell everyone in your circle of friends, your Facebook/Twitter accounts, your blog followers, your email address book, family, etc. The more heat that Procter and Gamble feels, the better the chances are that they’ll actually, I don’t know, PULL THE DIAPERS FROM THE SHELVES!
Does this look normal to you? (Warning: The photos below are pretty hard to digest. This is my 1 week old nephew, the latest little victim of the chemicals used in the Dry Max Swaddlers.)
This is only after a few days of wearing the diapers. Imagine if we’d let him wear the diapers for longer.
If your child has been having more rashes than usual or sudden changes in his/her skin, please check to see if the diapers you’re using have the Dry Max technology. Whatever chemical they are using in those diapers is having an adverse reaction to some children’s skin. There are tens of thousands of parents in the same situation with their children. We just want P&G to own up to this issue and pull the products, that’s all. Many other products are pulled for far less, why are they dragging their feet on this? There is VISIBLE proof that these diapers are causing major problems. Spread the word!
