Product Review: Tushies Gel-free Diapers

I hate to say this, but Tushies Gel-free Diapers are the worst diaper we have ever used.

They seem awesome on paper. They are gel-free (which they point out is only a bell/whistle), dye- and perfume-free, made from non-chlorine bleached materials, and have a nice soft exterior. Instead of gel, the diapers employ a cotton/wood pulp blend. The wood pulp is made from Scandinavian-grown trees in a sustainable fashion. With exception to the wood pulp, all materials used in manufacturing the diapers are made in the U.S.

It is not hard to say how annoyed we were that the diapers leaked 80% of the time. Granted, our wee one is a heavy wetter, but still! The diapers would become heavy after only an hour or so, and if you left E in them for 3 hours… it was bad news. We even had to wash his bouncy chair cover once because the pee had soaked it through.

TGD begs you to avoid them unless you have stock in a laundry detergent or related company.

Sorry Tushies! We really liked where you were headed. Maybe future versions will be better…
