Have you ever come across a concept and thought, "Now that is brilliant! Why didn't I think of that?" I pretty much said just that when I saw a review possibility for Diaper Dabbler. Even though I didn't qualify for the review, numbers wise, I sent the biz a message saying, "Great idea!" and we got to chatting back and forth.
In the end, I was offered the chance to review, and since this is a service that I can totally see a market for, I was happy to do it.
So what is Diaper Dabbler? It's a sample pack of a variety of diaper brands. Instead of buying a whole case of Brand X and then finding out they make Junior break out in a rash, you get a nice package containing 3 diapers in several different brands, plus a handy little card to keep on the changing table, where you can write down the brand name, and how well you liked it or didn't. (You know, not that new parents are forgetful or anything...!)
I've had a lot of babies over the years, and I've dealt with sensitive skin, rashes, super soakers, and just plain leaky dipes. It's very frustrated to have 3/4 of a case of diapers sitting by the changing table that you can't use. Bulk buying is not a good deal when the product doesn't work for you.
I can easily see how this would be a great baby shower gift. Let the parents determine which diapers work best for their new baby, and then they can buy that brand in bulk.
Diaper Dabbler offers regular brand names like Huggies and Pampers, and store generics, such as Target, Costco, and CVS, and they also offer the eco-friendly brands, such as Honest Company, Seventh Generation, and Earth's Best! Prices start at just $18 for a nice assortment of options.
What I also like about Diaper Dabbler is that they go up to size 3 currently. (I hope that if interest is there, they'll offer 4 eventually.) You know what this means? This is a brilliant idea for adoptive families, as well. Internationally adopted children are usually toddlers when they come home, not newborns. Having an assortment of size 3 diapers would be nice to take for overseas travel, or to have waiting when you arrive home with your new child. It would also be convenient for foster parents who take babies to keep a variety of brands on hand to see what works with a new placement in the early days when you don't want to be running out to the store for a different brand of diapers when your usual brand doesn't work. And you can print the comparison chart for each child.
Diaper Dabblers also sells training pants packs! Talk about an inspired idea! Potty training is a huge transition for a toddler, and it means starting all over again, brand wise, for parents. Disposable trainers fit a little differently than diapers do. Since Katie is out of size 3 diapers now (although she wore them when we first got home from China), I opted to try the training pants. A standard pack contains a total of 30 trainers, from 5 different brands. For review purposes, I received a total of 9 trainers from 3 different brands. When it's time to potty train Katie, I'll be able to figure out what's a good fit for her, what she can get up and down by herself the easiest. I also received the BumBoosa sample wipe they include with most orders. I was curious about the idea of bamboo wipes, and I liked it.
Diaper Dabbler is a great service for new parents. Their customer service is friendly. I would recommend them as the perfect baby shower present or welcome home gift for an adoptive family. You can connect with Diaper Dabbler on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
