From age 0, I have always loved the look of Honest Company diapers. They have the cutest patterns of all time and of course, I am into them being eco-friendly and baby friendly. It’s a secret shame of mine that we don’t use organic diapers. But what has stopped me from trying them is that when you were a newborn, we bought some, tried them and experienced poo explosions every single time. It was enough to sway me to Pampers which, to date, have never ever failed me.
With all that being said, I was wanting to try HC again now that you are obviously not a newborn anymore and have a totally different body and totally different poos so I was delighted to find a rogue diaper (with a super cute balloon print) hanging around at my in-laws.
Literally, not since 1 month have you ever had a poo explosion out of a diaper but lo and behold, we put on this Honest diaper, take you out to brunch and our brunch companion (who just announced that she’s pregnant so it would be fitting that this would happen) left the meal with a poo stain on her pant courtesy of you. This would be one thing if you happened to have extraordinarily crazy poos that day but it was a regular turd of regular size and consistency so I have to look to what was holding that shit in. Honestly.
What the fuck.
I feel like if you are going to charge more than any other diaper out there, you’d better be a poo poo fortress.
So with that comes my lesson for today: just because something is expensive, doesn’t mean it is good and sometimes you have to sacrifice your ideals (like having organic diapers) for realistic things (like having non organic diapers that hold in a crap.)
Sure, in an ideal world, you’d be walking around with your butt covered in hearts and rainbows but in this world, that butt just needs some coverage. Period.
So Baby, try before you assume that things are going to be good. what works for others may not work for you and vice versa and what seems like the best thing ever might just turn out to be a perfect shit-storm.
Oh, and Honest Company, your diapers suck.
