We all know what diapers are top notch as Abena, Bambino, Drycare, and so on.Well I've been wondering for a little while is beside the top tier of diapers that we all love, what are some of the diapers out there that are on the cheap side that also performs well.
We all know what Depend is like, they are readily bought everywhere and don't need a discussion about those.
This discussion is to find a hidden treasure that no one really raves about. If you see a review that needs to be posted, (no large retail store brands such as Walgreens or etc.) Try giving your best impressions of them including pros and cons.
Please also post about brands that you dislike and give descriptions about why you don't like them. I'd like to make this a resource guide.
I'll start out with Absorbs by Medline.
They are a cloth backed diaper with a unique blue color that I like, but that pretty much is probably the best attribute that I like about these diapers.
The capacity is rather low and it feels soupy when it is wet. Also when sitting I can feel the urine being pressed out and can actually feel a rather large amount of urine being squeezed out kind of like when you wring out a towel. Even when not at capacity it feels wet and you can pinch the padding and see liquid coming from the padding.
There are leg gatherers and they make a decent fit. The Velcro tabs are ok but they have sharp corners that actually broke my skin. I notice with a small void that it does eventually wick to a rather large area over time but the press out its still noticeable.
They are thin and for a cloth backed diaper, they are pretty noisy. Another thing that I noticed is that they leak when rolled up. They just don't actually hold the urine it seems like.
Overall they are made to be worn for a couple of hours and I don't really like these beyond the color. The wet feeling after a small void just makes it terrible. You think it would be able to hold at least 10 oz without leaking our feeling wet, but it doesn't.
Absorbs by Medline final grades:
