Bringing the Bzz... Kroger Comforts for Baby

Over the next couple of posts, I am going to be writing some reviews of products that I got to try by being a Bzzagent. To read more about Bzzagent, click here. These are my own opinions, I did not have to say anything nice about them if I didn't want to.

Long ago, in a lifetime far, far away... I used to have spare time. And in that spare time I did things like product reviews, mainly for a website called Bzzagent. I loved it... Sharing my opinion and getting free stuff? Winning!

But then life happened, and things like being a Bzzagent went on the back burner. I wanted to contribute, but just didn't have the time to do a decent job at it. So I stopped. I was sad.

Then, the other day, I received an email from them asking if I wanted to try out the Kroger Comfort brand of baby products.

Ha! Finally, something right up my alley! Baby products have invaded a large portion of my life, and I was going to be able to try the Kroger Comfort diapers, wipes and sippy cups, as well as receive a bunch of coupons that I could use towards other Kroger Comforts products.

For today, I will be writing about the Kroger Comforts for Baby diapers.

Let me start by saying that I am very leery of store brand products, especially when it comes to diapers. For most of us, cheaper usually means lesser quality. Because let's face it, changing a diaper is not the most fun thing in the world, and changing a diaper that has leaked (whether it be # 1 or 2) does nothing to endear us to the task.

But I was pleasantly surprised with the Kroger Comforts for Baby diapers... they don't feel all that different from the Pampers brand (maybe a wee bit thinner and a bit stiffer), and have a very cute design of bees on them. You know, if you care about that stuff.

Their shape was a little more square than any of the leading brands, but it didn't have any effect on containing any of the liquids or solids that my son emitted.

In fact, we had no leakage, or any other issues at all, and with the price of these diapers running around $14 for a box of 96 (size 3), that is an awesome deal. That makes each diaper .145 cents.

I only buy diapers when I can get them for .16 or under per diaper, and I usually have to get a great deal and use coupons the get that. If you have a Kroger card, you can electronically add coupons to it, and more often than not, they have $1 off coupons for the Kroger brand diapers on their site.

My rating? I'd give these diapers 4 out of 5 poops. They lose one poop because I haven't yet tried the overnight test yet... I'm working up my nerves, it's just that changing crib sheets makes me violent.

Yeah for diapers that don't leak! That is a definite plus in my book.
