Naturally, this would happen just as we're getting traction again on the toilet training.
One of the things that bugged about Pampers is the needless decoration, which would hang out of the kid's pants and show through when she'd wear white.
When I emailed P&G early on in my diaperbuying to see if they couldn't offer premium, all-white diapers that, you know, didn't look so tacky, I got a canned response about how Pampers really likes to offer features that enhance its customer's experience, and I'm like "But this isn't a feature, it's an annoyance."
Last week, when the purple Cruisers we normally buy were out, we grabbed the greenish Stay-Dry, and I was stoked. There were easily 50% less Muppets, and no scattered decorations. The whole seat was just plain white. Like the clouds in heaven.
Of course, if your whole diaper routine is built around Elmospotting, you might be in trouble. From ""Here’s the story of how Pampers dissed Elmo, made my baby cry and insulted my intelligence.":
I decided to call Pampers and get an answer to that question. On Friday, I called the toll-free customer service line and asked what was up with the missing Elmo. (I didn’t identify myself as a newspaper reporter, just as a concerned mom.) The customer service representative told me this was a new change. She said they try new features from time to time. I said, “This isn’t a new feature, this is removing a feature.” She said that was the feature.Like Taking Elmo From A Baby [lohudblogs.com]
