Diapers

I want to know if anyone else has experienced this or if I am just plain crazy. I use a certain brand of diapers and have purchased them at 3 different stores in different quantities. I have noticed that when I purchase them from my usual store they work extremely well and we never have leaks or disasters. Now when I purchase the same brand in another store, they seem different, a bit thinner and the design on the front is not the same. Also, they don't work as well. Has this ever happened to anyone before?? I know that the diaper companies package their product in different quantities for particular stores but shouldn't they be the same thing? Just wondering. Hope I don't find out that I'm crazy. Please share with me if you have encountered this same problem. Thanks in advance :)

  1. This is true, I have seen it because I work with diapers. I think they might package them in different factories and they don't all have the same standards. I read something about this awhile ago but I can't remember where.

  4. I honestly can't remember, it's been so long since I have had to buy diapers. And I don't want to go through that again. But I can say I always purchased diapers at Wally World.

  5. Wow. I used to notice them being a little different, but not that much. I didn't know the diaper companies that made them could do that. I would be pissed, spending the same amount on the same brand and getting lower quality. I would take them back (I've done that before)

  6. I haven't noticed them with diapers in particular, but I do know that manufacturers stock different stores with different quality items of the same brand. i.e. the Panasonic tv stocked at Wal-Mart is different than the one stocked at Best Buy...maybe they do the same with diapers?

    PS
    Have you tried Diapers.com? It's supposed to be fabulous and you'll never go back to buying in the store.

  7. I'm piggybacking on Justice Fergie's comment. I though I was crazy when the Stouffer's Mac & Cheese that I bought at Wal-Mart tasted completely different (i.e. in a bad way) from the same product that I usually got in the supermarket.

    Apparently manufacturer's either cut back on certain ingredients to offer a lower cost or they are giving another company permission to use their name and packaging. If they can do it with food, they can definitely do it with diapers.

    You are not crazy.

    Hold me. Thanks.

  9. No I've never experienced that before. I've never had differences in the same brand of diapers for different stores. They are usually all in the same quantity too.

    I'm shocked at the other's comments. I didn't think they could do that.
