Pros: Inexpensive in price; cute John Lennon designs.
Cons: Sizes run smaller than name brands do; only available at Wal-Mart.
Since my almost three year old son has no desire whatsoever to start potty training any time soon, I am still buying disposable diapers almost every week. A few weeks ago, I was shopping in the baby department at my local Wal-Mart and quickly discovered that the major name brands (Pampers, Luvs, and Huggies) had downsized their packaging sizes yet again! Arggg....but of course the smaller bags of diapers were still selling for the same price those with more diapers in them did. Too sneaky!! Tristan wears a size 6, and the jumbo packages noticeably have went from containing 32 diapers each to just 26! I was SO mad that I vowed never to buy their diapers again (yeah, I know that's going a bit overboard, but I was serious at the time). Anyway, I then decided to pick up a package of these generic store brand White Cloud Disposable Diapers with the cute John Lennon designs instead as the size 6 (over 35 pounds) still contained 32 diapers each (for now!). Read on to find out about our experience with these particular diapers.
White Cloud Disposable Diapers are advertised to provide ultra leak protection with the soft touch and can only be found exclusively in Wal-Mart stores for about $8 for each jumbo package. They are primarily white in color and feature the popular John Lennon designs featured across the front, which include drawings of several different animals featured on baby clothing and other layette items. These diapers have a cloth-like cover, which is pretty much standard these days for disposable diapers as the plastic cover is rarely used anymore. The waistband stretches for a better fit and contains wide velcro grip tabs that allow the diaper to be opened and closed during wear as needed without losing their stickiness. The elastic legs encourage a more custom fit, which in turn decreases leaks. According to product advertising, these generic store brand diapers are snuggly soft and moisture proof with breathable sides. Hypoallergenic--perfume and dye free. Specially formulated for baby's sensitive skin. So since these White Cloud Disposable Diapers contain many of the features the more expensive brands have, they are certainly a great money-saving choice for parents on a strict budget.
~~~Packaging and Sizes~~~
Available in both jumbo and super mega packages, these White Cloud Disposable Diapers cost much less than the big name brands do, even when coupons for Pampers, Huggies, and Luvs are used. They offer the same standard sizing as most other diapers do (Newborn to Size 6), yet I've noticed from our experience that the Size 6 in these White Cloud diapers definitely run small when compared to Pampers. Of course the smaller sizes contain more diapers while the larger sizes contain less for the same price, but this is true for all disposable diapers in general. Since downsizing occurs quite frequently as I mentioned in my introduction, I won't even bother to list how many diapers come in each size. But I will breakdown the size ranges available when purchasing these White Cloud Disposable Diapers (remember, they run small):
Newborn........Up to 10 lbs (5 kg)
Size 1.........Up to 14 pounds (6 kg)
Size 2.........12 to 18 lbs (5 to 8 kg)
Size 3.........16 to 28 lbs (7 to 13 kg)
Size 4.........22 to 37 lbs (10 to 17 kg)
Size 5.........27 pounds & over (12 kg & over)
Size 6.........35 pounds & over (Over 16 kg)
***This generic diaper company also offers White Cloud Training Pants available in three sizes that I HOPE we'll be trying out very soon!
Over the last 34 months of my youngest child's life, I've had the opportunity to try just about every diaper out there, from the most expensive to the cheaper store brands, including these White Cloud Disposable Diapers. While I most often purchase whatever I happen to have a coupon for (thankfully my son's skin is not super sensitive and we can easily switch from one brand to the next with no problem), I'm far from being a diaper snob and will usually buy the least expensive brand I can. For I've noticed ALL diapers will leak at some point in time, even the most expensive, and one brand doesn't leak any more or less than another in our experience. I've always adored the John Lennon designs, which are actually much more attractive in my opinion than the Little People designs printed on the Pampers Baby Dry currently. We've had no major blowouts with the White Cloud diapers so far, and they contain leaks just as well as the many others we've used in the past. So the only improvement I'd suggest would be making the sizes a tad bigger to compare with the name brands. Other than that, I have no complaints whatsoever when using these White Cloud Disposable Diapers on my son.
Look for these White Cloud Disposable Diapers with the adorable John Lennon designs the next time you are shopping at your local Wal-Mart. They offer many of same features the more popular name brands do without charging the higher prices that you'll pay otherwise. Just pay close attention to the sizing as leaks are more likely to occur when you've bought the wrong size verses buying a particular brand itself. They are unscented for those of you who do not care for that distinct Pampers smell (I actually like it, myself!), and the stretchy velcro tabs make it easy to custom fit each diaper to your child's bottom. So in conclusion, I hope you give these White Cloud Disposable Diapers a try just once. For they may just become your favorite all while saving lots of money along the way as well. Good luck and happy diapering :-)
