Has Tranquility changed their ATNs? I just got 2 packs and they are definitely thinner than the last ones I had and the plastic is certainly not as robust. They used to be a lot thicker than the Slimlines (for obvious reasons) but now they seem to be about the same. Maybe there is more SAP than before but I don't normally wet them so I can't really compare the absorbency or how much they swell vs the old ones.
I know that the plastic can vary from batch to batch but it's definitely thinner and softer than before and I've already torn a few while taping up and have had to resort to making a packing tape landing strip. They seem to fit more comfortably and are much easier to conceal but I guess I just don't like when something I love changes. The Slimlines are the same as before and I didn't notice any changes in them, same plastic and thickness.
This seems to be a trend across all the diaper manufacturers and although I like soft, 'discreet' plastic and a more comfortable fit, I'm not sure I trust thinner. I'm just now getting to the point where I want to start wetting and this is certainly making me a little more apprehensive about it. I think I've already heard that the Bambinos and Abenas have been changed too.
My wife works tonight so I'll try to get some pictures to compare the ATNs with the Slimlines.
