Stupid Luvs!

We've had kids in diapers for almost 5 years now...Jeffery actually still uses diapers at night and during nap time...we used Pampers at first because that's what the hospital started us with...then Jeffery got into Blue's Clues and we got Luvs because that's the character on them and they were cheaper for more diapers in a box, come to find out the tabs didn't stretch and didn't fit him good, so we switched back to Pampers (all of this is when he was quite young) Then I saw a commercial where Luvs switched to stretchy tabs so we switched back for awhile. THEY LEAK! We went BACK to Pampers quickly...then money got tight and we needed to save some money...at $3 cheaper for a box, we had to switch back to Luvs (it adds up when you have 2 in the same size diaper) I swear, I cussed those diapers like there was no tomorrow!!!! They leaked, the tabs broke off, and it was irritating me beyond belief...well I know they have this "leak proof guarantee" I called the number, they expected me to mail them the RECEIPT and a diaper to them...uhm, I don't keep receipts for diapers...so I couldn't take part of that! I was pissed! Jeff kept saying "maybe it's just this box" so we got box after box...I finally got fed up, I told him "We're getting Pampers...no ifs, ands, or buts about it! I'm tired of cleaning up poop off the floor when it falls out of a diaper when the tab breaks!"



That was a few months ago....recently we ran out of diapers when we didn't realize we were low, I was forced to go to the Dollar Store to get diapers, they only have Luvs, Huggies and an off brand...well my kids are allergic to something in Huggies (I was too as a baby) and I don't like off brand....so again I was forced to get a small pack of Luvs this past week. I'm pissed again! They seem to get worse, weaker tabs or something....shoot we just went to the city the other night and by the time we got home, Jaylin's diaper had broke and she hadn't even peed in it!!! I'm sick of Luvs....they SUCK!!! We're a Pampers family from now on, I don't care how far we have to drive...we will NOT get another pack of Luvs! I'm not cleaning up another mess because Luvs are junk! They should have to come over here and clean my kid's rooms carpets because of their dumb diapers, they were soaked with pee and poop when the tabs broke, also replace some of my kids' wardrobe when the tabs broke while they were sleeping and soaked their clothes, bedsheets and mattress!

Awhh... I'm sorry you had a hard time with the Luvs. We've never had a problem with them, except when either one of the kids were ready to move up a size. And to think that (I'm pretty sure) Luvs and Pampers are both made by P & G... odd.

That stinks!! I used Luv's when my first was born because of the price and quality. Then I tried using them when Gabs was born (3 years ago) and they were so awful that I ended up stopping. I had better luck with the cheaper CVS brand diapers than with any of the major brands. CVS was the only one I could buy and pay a good price and not have to worry about leaking.

I'm sorry you've been through such a rough time with them!

Ugh. I totally agree. I have totally given up on LUVS after giving them NUMEROUS chances. When not using cloth diapers at night we use pampers swaddlers for the little babies and Huggies from about 4 months up. Thank GOD my huge babies are not allergic to Huggies because the pampers fit them weird! Found you on MBC. Now following!

When we use disposables {typically when we're out and about} we use whatever Costco/Kirkland brand dipes or Pampers. Nothing else!

I'm sorry Luvs have given you such grief, that's no bueno!

Luvs leaked for us too and my youngest is going to be 8 in a few months. I used Huggies, Pampers or the Walmart brand. That brand was actually cheaper than Luvs and worked great.

We hate Luvs they also claim to be hypoallergenic on their commercials and my daughter broke out in blisters from them. I wrote the company and they sent me a coupon for free Luvs you dingbat what makes you think I am going to get them to break her out again. This was like 5 years ago and from what I hear they aren't getting any better

Heather M said...

I too Hate Luvs and Have the same problems! And who saves the Receipt for $20 diapers when they can't be returned to the store anyway??
Yeah and Pampers and Luvs are made by the same Company P&G! ridiculous isn't it?

hmmm, I love Luvs. I really think it depends on the shap of your kiddo. When Aud was a newborn we only used pampers but once he turned about 9 months old, they started leaking and Luvs was the only thing that worked.

Luvs suck! Pampers all the way, no matter what.

I’m surprised to hear about your experiences with Luvs. I work in P&G Consumer Care where we make both Luvs and Pampers. I’ve alerted our Quality Team of the issues you’ve had with the diaper tearing and leaking. To help with leaks, your might want to move up a size; our sizes overlap. With each increase in size, you also gain extra absorbency. We’d love to get additional information about the diapers your bought. Please call us at 1-866-678-6428. Nat
