Thread: A little unhappy with snuggies diapers.

  1. #1

    Default A little unhappy with snuggies diapers.

    I'm going to go against the grain on what vibe I was getting about snuggies overnights and say that I'm a little disappointed with this diaper.

    On the positive note, it is super cute, and I like that it has water fading stars and such, and it does hold water ok, but...

    First, it claims that it can hold 135 oz of water, while xpmedical claims that a dry 24/7 can hold 95 oz. I was expecting a thicker diaper than the dry 24/7, but looking at them right now next to each other, they are about the same and I'm still favoring the 24/7 to maybe be thicker. Also, on use, I feel like the dry 24/7 does better at holding fluid still.

    Second, the tapes on the snuggies overnights do not hold up for more than probably 4 hours, certainly not the length of a night. Most of the time, one or two of the tapes break from the back end, they still hold to the front landing zone of the diaper, but the back end where the tape starts, just falls off.

    I still think it is a fun diaper, but I feel like the next time I am going to get a all over print diaper, I'm just going to get a cloth cushies, and those are more of a play diaper anyway, but I still trust them more strangely. Or I will stick with the dry 24/7 for when I need a better diaper than my boosted certainties makeshift.

    Well hopefully I don't ruin your experience. They are still a cool diaper, I guess I was just expecting a little more.

    For me, they work significantly better than the Dry 24-7s. The Snuggies actually wick, unlike the Dry 24-7s, and the tapes always stick to the front of the Snuggies, and I lose a tape from the Dry 24-7s about 3/4 of the time. I have had about a 10% failure rate overall on one of the 4 tapes on the Snuggies overnights, but it's not like they weren't soaked to capacity when the tapes ripped...and that's simply not been the case with the last case of Dry 24-7s that I bought...

    Interesting, that is a bit of a different experience than mine, maybe I just got a bad batch of tapes.

    I've shared my (similar) experience here: https://www.adisc.org/forum/showthre...cused-feedback

    TLDR - Rub the tapes on the snuggies until they get hot from friction, that seems to help "activate" the adhesive.

    I am reporting back like I said I would. I really like them. They are comparably thick to the bambinos, hold a similar amount and have a better design. I have been wearing them for a week straight 24/7.

    I agree that this claim is realistically bogus. I suspect they measured (if they did any kind of testing whatsoever) by pouring fluid on an outstretched sample over the entire area of the diaper to achieve a rating. Unfortunately, people simply don't use diapers like doggie mats, and that's before any press-out. I also agree that this diaper is unbelievably comfortable.

    I'm going to have to disagree with you there. While multiple people have resonated this statement, I seem to be one of the more fortunate customers that haven't had this problem yet. It is possible it just doesn't fit you correctly. I suppose the correct stance is 'Your Mix May Vary'.
