I’ve seen the commercial a few times now and every time I see it I feel gross. In case you’ve been living under a rock with no TV, here it is:

Now I will give Huggies points for creativity, but really it is just weird for a baby boy to be garnering those looks from adults, especially adult women. More importantly, though, those diaper jeans are just tacky. I mean, really, moms? Are you sending your baby out anywhere with just a diaper on? If not, what’s wrong with Sesame Street characters?

Really, I feel like these diaper jeans just give moms reason to send their little one out Lady Gaga-style (pants-free, that is) and that is one of my personal pet peeves. You don’t come out of the house without your pants, so why send your kid out like that?

And when there are so many really cute denim options available for babies, do we really need a diaper that looks like an ugly pair of acid wash jeans? NO! These are so much cuter, please buy them instead of those horrendous diaper jeans.

If you do insist on sending your little one out with just a diaper on, please at least rub down his/her legs with one of the best sunscreens for kids to keep burns at bay. And throw on a pair of the best kids’ sunglasses while you’re at it.

  • These diapers are totally a waste of dye. Their marketing ploy make work for some parents. cleverlychanging.com

  • I think its cute. and I was able to get a few packs for as little as 5.99 each from CVS. It’s all in how you look at them. Take it for what its worth.

  • I hate them as well. We are just now potty trained but even if we were not I would never let my child walk around sans pants. Just a diaper, no matter what the color of diaper, screams trashy.

  • Um, please see my website. I send my baby out in her diaper all the time. It’s a cloth diaper. (Actual cloth; not dyed to LOOK like cloth.) You are right, though, I cover up her legs, I put on shoes and her dress. But, most people think that she’s wearing a diaper cover, and don’t realize that it’s her actual diaper.

  • This is quite a strong reaction for a diaper? Has anyone even seen any kids out in public wearing these diapers? I haven’t. I don’t see what the big deal is, it’s a diaper. Why do you have a pet peeve at all about what other kids wear anyway? Seems to me, you could be spending your energy on something more positive than than critiquing what diapers children wear.

  • I have to say, we’re smitten with these and for one reason: they are totally invisible when sticking out the back of my daughter’s jeans/denim shorts/denim skirts/etc. (We don’t use them without something over them.) It’s actually nice to not see her diaper sticking out of everything all the time…these are totally camouflaged with denim over them. Super cute! And since my baby wears Huggies Supreme anyway, why not?
