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?

gear, potty training

Ack, I didn't know they were discontinuing!!  I kept checking wal mart because they always ran out of Size Fours-ALWAYS!  Now that they're gone out of size fours, the rest are soon to follow I suppose.  Mostly I liked WC because they didn't leak overnight, but I use Huggies Overnight's and they have NEVER leaked.  My dd is two though and potty training so it may be different.

I always ended up with my kids in either Huggies or the Target brand. White Cloud was ok, but the parent's choice one sucked.

I have used the Member's Mark diapers and Sam's used to have a brand called Smiles that was the same thing. I am as pleased with them as the White Cloud. They are pretty much the same thing. I tried the Parent's Choice and they gave my daughter and awful rash and are a lesser quality.

I hate it that WC is leaving Wal-Mart.  WC is my back up brand when I can't get my preferred brand, LUVS.  I'm gonna stock up since Gaffney, SC & Shelby, NC Wal-Mart.

I switched to Kroger brand very much comparable to White Cloud. I actually have not had a leak at night with this brand and did once in a while with White Cloud.

Man, this stinks! I really like WC! I got a box of Parents Choice. Not big fans of it but it will have to do for now. I'm hoping that Kroger will have something comparable to it. Sams Club is too far from where I live and wouldn't be worth saving $5 or so for it.

I always used Luvs, they are cheap in price and of good quality. I started using WC when they were out of Luvs. I noticed they were about $1 less for the same amount and still good quality so I switched (in this economy every penny counts) I HATE PARENTS CHOICE! Leaks, just plain poor quality. I've also used Target brand which are similar in price and quality as

WC. I stay away from pampers and huggies not only are they expensive but they have a chemical that made both my daughters break out in a rash. The cheaper ones not only typically come with more per box but, they don't put dyes or perfumes in there.
