Best Bottom Diaper Lives Up to the Name

Last weekend, we introduced prunes to Eudora’s diet.  We put her to bed that night in a disposable diaper so that we could put some Boudreaux’s Butt Paste on a rash spot… and I woke up to a disgusting blow out.  I threw out a pair of pajamas because I knew that I’d never get them back to white.  And besides, she’d nearly outgrown then anyway.

I remember thinking that I wouldn’t have had that awful mess if I’d used a cloth diaper for overnight.  I certainly wouldn’t have had to throw out a pair of jammies and strip the crib bedding.  It turns out that I was right.  Eudora had another absolutely disgusting diaper, and this time we had better results.

Would you believe that sweet, smiling face was producing something not so sweet?

I picked up my daughter, who was happy and smiling on the floor.  When I gave her a sniff, I stopped smiling.  My husband, remembering the disastrous diaper blow out of this morning, went with me to help change her.  I was trying to be optimistic.  I’d fed her apples and apricots, so maybe it would be better.  And she was wearing a Best Bottom diaper.

As soon as I put her on her changing pad on the floor and opened her diaper, I knew that it was not, in fact, going to be a kinder, gentler diaper change.  It was absolutely vile and disgusting… so vile and disgusting that I will not go into details.  Suffice it to say that if it wasn’t for the fact that I have a strong stomach and she’s my kid, I probably would have lost my dinner.  It was an absolutely impressive level of vile, particularly considering she poops up the back of her diaper.

But as disgusting as it was, the Best Bottom diaper contained it.  Don’t get me wrong; the diaper desperately needed to be rinsed and the shell was far too soiled to be reused.  But it was all inside the diaper.  The double gussets and the back elastic kept all of the mess contained.  In fact, it somehow managed to even contain the majority of the smell.  I was able to put her pretty purple outfit back on her with no difficulties.  (Granted, I wished that I had a diaper sprayer  with me at my mother-in-law’s house, but that’s another blog post.)

I liked my Best Bottom diapers before, but now?  Well, there’s no doubt in my mind that they are called “Best” for a reason.

  1. I have never tried Best Bottoms. But, they must be goo diapers if they contained a Prune blow out lol

  2. Next time you have to use a disposable put a cloth diaper cover over top of it. That way you still get the leak protection that cloth provides:)

  3. Best bottoms really don’t live up to their name. I used them and all they did was leak, they didn’t even fit my four month old on the largest setting, just left horrid red marks everywhere and her bum crack hanging out. I can’t believe the good reviews these diapers get, my friends also had the same problem.

    • Wow, I’m amazed. I’ve never heard of this issue before. If you’d like, you could try to put the diaper on your baby, take pictures, and send them to me. I’d be more than happy to help you troubleshoot your fit.

  4. Love love love my best bottoms! They work for my 2 year old and almost 8 month old and is my first choice diaper during the day 🙂

  5. Wow that is great, I definately think that cloth contains more poo than a disposable.
