I'm the kind of mother who cannot resist a diaper fad (Here's proof!) So when I got a chance to buy the Huggies Slip-On diapers, I jumped at the opportunity because changing Sugar's diaper is now a 5 minute physical struggle that I often lose. Add that to one international flight and the Slip-Ons sounded like a good idea for diaper changes in transit.
So I packed a few slip-on diapers in my bag to use. Now Sugar had been having diarrhea - like 5 times daily for the last few days - and I relished the idea of being able to change her standing up in the plane lavatory. We put on the first Huggies Slip-On diaper and headed for the airport. It did not feel quite as snug around the waist and legs but I shrugged it off. When the flight was ready to board, I went to the restroom to change the girls' diapers. Mr Slip-On was also Mr Leak-On (as in leaked on the back and legs, leak through corduroy pants, big leak on the car seat.)
To say I was disappointed is putting it mildly. I did the best I could to clean up the mess but unfortunately did not have a back-up pair of pants on hand. So my baby started her new life in Canada practically nekkid, wearing only a onesie and mommy's scarf. It sorta felt like deja vu because this is the same baby that left the hospital after birth in - yes you guessed right - a kimono shirt and a blanket due to poop issues. I guess I should wise up right?!
My final word is this: Unless you're planning on some very early potty training, I'd say skip the slip-on diapers. They're not ready for the magic babies can do just yet.
