Well Beginings Diapers from Walgreens

Full disclosure: For this review, I was selected to try out the diapers and blog about it. This meant I got a pack for free. Walgreens even threw in some baby wash and wipes as an added bonus.

Ratings (out of 10)
Overall: 7
Design: 9
Softness: 8
Leak protection: 8
Fit: 9
Sagging: 5
Absorbent pad breakage: 3
Thickness: 9
Recommend: Yes

The first thing I noticed was that these diapers are cute with little elephants on them (M2's favorite!) They have no scent at all to them even with the natural botanicals, vitamin E and aloe on the absorbent pad. Soft and fairly thin sums up the texture and weight.

Cute elephant
M2 liked the elephants when I showed them to her when trying them the first time. The fit was good, the sticky tabs are thick and there's an extra bit of material between the leg elastic and the edge of the diaper to catch leaking poo (some don't have this which leads to poo explosions). Since the diapers aren't very thick, M2 didn't have diaper sticking out the bottom of her shorts and skirts, which was great. You also can't see the design very well through light-weight clothing which is a plus in my book! They're easy to put on and the tabs didn't rip off (I hate when diapers do that!)

M2 approved

In-use the diapers scored pretty well. M2 got no rash. They're very absorbent and poo stayed in well also. The band didn't roll up, sides didn't stick out the top after wear. The two negatives were 1. As soon as they get more than just a tiny bit wet, they sag. Because of the sag, the fit was then much looser. 2. The absorbent pad breaks while wearing, making the sagging worse and leaving a good-size area without as much absorbency. Plus it looked weird. Not horrible negatives and I still used them all without getting frustrated and damning their existence, as has happened with other brands. Overall, I liked the diapers, as did M2 and A. I would use them again and suggest them to others if you've got a Walgreens nearby.

On a non-diaper related note, things have been super crazy and busy lately, including a car accident. Hence, I haven't been posting as much. I promise an update post is coming soon!
