New Luvs Super Absorbent Diapers #TheClueIsInTheBlue


Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks & Luvs diapers. The opinion expressed here is based on our experience with the product.

Let's face it diapers are expensive. Unless you go the cloth diaper route, diapers may be one of the largest baby expenses over time. When SheSpeaks and Luvs offered to send me a package of the new Luvs Super Absorbent diapers with Night Lock (look for that blue label), I was happy to give them a try.

The claims on the back of the package:

  • Helps Lock Wetness Away - Even Overnight
  • Cottony Soft on Baby's Skin
  • Leak Barrier Leg Gathers
  • Refastenable Stretch Tabs
  • Great Fitting Contoured Shape
Here is our experience:

The Luvs diapers fit Victoria well. She is currently on the edge of moving from a size 3 up to size 4 based more on height than weight. I think the Luvs diapers are slightly longer than the brand we are currently using which gives her a bit more time to grow. The diapers fastened well and were easy to adjust if her wiggling prevented me from getting them fastened securely on the first attempt. Victoria seemed to be comfortable and the diapers didn't appear to hamper her climbing in any way.

I think the outside layer of the diaper feels a bit more like plastic than the brand we currently use. I didn't notice a plastic scent when opening the package however. Victoria's skin is quite sensitive and she still occasionally breaks out in an eczema rash. We did not experience any irritation from switching the diapers to Luvs.

Although we didn't have any leaks down the legs, Victoria is an extremely heavy sleeper and we did have wet sheets on a few mornings. This happens with our current brand of diapers as well and I don't think we had any more wet mornings with Luvs than we were already having. The only solution for this appears to be limiting Victoria's liquids after dinner. The new Luvs Super Absorbent diapers (sold exclusively at Wal-Mart) claim to be 15% more absorbent than regular Luvs.

The Verdict:

Luvs Super Absorbent diapers are definitely worth a try! Especially since Luvs offers a money back guarantee if you contact them within 60 days of purchase. Remember the clue is in the blue on the label so you know you are getting Luvs most absorbent diaper.
