New Designer Diapers for the Discriminating Derriere

Julie Ryan Evans

Designer DiapersWell, thank goodness for Cynthia Rowley and Target. Now babies will no longer have to be subjected to doing their business in any plain old diapers. Come July, all the hippest heinies can don designer diapers.

Choose from 11 styles, including madras, stripes, or ruffles -- "the perfect blend of utility and aesthetics." And such a bargain at just $6 more than a package of Pampers for something your baby is literally going to poo poo in!

Forget the recession; this is about fashion for your baby's fanny from none other than Cynthia Rowley, designer extraordinaire.

"As a mom, I wanted other moms and dads to have more options in every part of their lives -- even diapers," Rowley said. "It's the first piece of clothing your baby will ever wear, and it should be special."

How ever will parents choose between these and the abomination of denim diapers (aka baby daisy dukes)?

Listen, I'm more than a little guilty of spending way too much on designer baby clothes on occasion (that little Lily Pulitzer stuff is so cute!), but for diapers? That are disposable? No thanks.

And like my problem with the denim ones, I actually think babies should wear clothing when in public. And I know more than a few people will consider these as double-duty pants, which is just not fashionable or even fine as far as I'm concerned.  

Will you buy the new designer diapers?
