White Cloud Diapers Discontinued

117

White Cloud diapers, a favorite brand of many CafeMoms for the price, design and function, are being discontinued.

"Man! Thats the ONLY kind of diapers that works for my kids!!" says amanda803, one of several moms venting in the Stay at Home Moms group. "Maybe I'll convert to cloth."

I put in a call to Walmart, where the diapers are sold exclusively, to get the scoop, but they didn't get back to me before the craziness of the weekend took over. But Steph1499 got through to the White Cloud people. Here's what a consumer service person emailed to her:

"Unfortunately, the White Cloud diaper line has been discontinued; however the Parent's Choice brand will still be available.

The White Cloud diapers were a brand that was exclusive to the Walmart retailers; therefore they are not available at any other retailer. If you're looking for something comparable to the White Cloud diaper, we manufacture the Member's Mark diapers for Sam's Club."

I also talked to CafeMom's super saver, ReesesPieces, also a White Cloud fan, who's been working the phones, too.

"The White Cloud company explained that Member's Mark diapers from Sam's are as comparable to White Cloud as you can get," ReesesPieces says. "They manufactuer both those and the Parent's Choice diapers for Walmart, but she agreed that Parent's Choice diapers are of a lesser quality."

Out of despiration, ReesesPieces bought a box of Huggies (with a coupon) but noticed they reduced their 80-count box of diaper (size 5) a couple months ago to 70-count for the same price!

"I called Huggies about this," ReesesPieces says, "and they said that they now cost more for them to make. She did offer to send me some coupons; however, the price for the lower quantity is certainly beginning to outweigh the quality. I have yet to get down to Target (a 30-minute drive) to see if perhaps they have changed their price or quantity. If they have not, then I will most likely stick with them."

The good news is that you can still find White Cloud diapers on the shelves at some stores, according to moms, and many are on clearance, so it might be time to stock up.

Has anyone tried Member's Mark diapers? Are they really comparable to White Cloud?

What brand will you be subsitituting for White Cloud?

White Cloud, Parent's Choice, and pretty much all other "generic" diapers gave my children rashes. Huggies always leaked..probably because they seem to fit long/lean babies and mine were always short/chubby. We have done well with Cloth Diapering at home and Pampers in the diaper bag!

I usually buy my diapers at Costco.  When they have a coupon I get Huggies, but most of the time I buy the Kirkland Signature brand.  I really like them.  I bought Parents Choice once and was very disapointed.  Both of my boys seem to have very large bladders and the PC did not have the same absorbtion as what I am used to.  I have noticed that the store packages have gone down in quantity, but Costco's quantities seem to be staying stable.

My daughter is 18 months old and ever since she was in a size one diaper, we have used White Cloud. The Parent's Choice ones at Walmart are really bad. Your baby might as well be nakie! We are using Luvs now. They are cheaper than Huggies and seem to work well.

Well this would explain why I couldn't find the White Cloud diapers last week at Walmart!  I really liked those diapers.  The price was right and my dd didn't leak through them.

When we were using diapers, we were MAJOR Member's Mark fans!  Huggies leaked, Pampers were too expensive, and I liked WC, but the Member's Mark were just as good and cheaper than WC.  I strongly recommend them!

when i found out wc diapers were gone i was so upset. They are the only diapers that my littke one could where. They were latex free. I called Sams and they said they dont know if theres are latex free or not. That they would find out. For right now we are wearing cloth.
