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?

I use Luvs I bought a box about 2 weeks ago that had 108 and I went back this weekend and bought more and I only got 78 diapers. The price I paid 2 weeks ago was 19.99 and I payed like 16.99 this time. I like luvs because they are reasonable and they are of good quality.

After a weekend of searching for WC in the 4 walmarts closest to me and not a single manager at any of the stores being ANY help as to why they didn't sell them anymore, I'm glad I found this to explain why they're gone.  It's a real shme because that's what we switched to from Huggies.  I will be trying the Member's Mark brand Parent's Choice ALWAYS leaked, and Luvs hang down to my sons ankles as soon as he's peed in them twice, not to mention the scent gives him a rash.

I'm a stay at home dad and also found that WC was the best diaper, not only for the money but in quality also. We were given Pampers as a gift and couldn't wait until they were gone they leaked so much. I can't remember the price difference but I did compare the price of the WC to the prices of the different diapers at Sam's Club and found the, per diaper, Sam's Club was more expensive (actually, I've found this about quite a few of S.C. prices). I'm glad to see on here many like the Target brand. I guess I'll give those a try. Good thing my wife works next to a Target. Another thing; if WC and Parent's Choice are made by the same company, why on earth did they NOT get rid of PC and keep WC?!?!?!?!?

We tried them all. My son, now two, has a "linebacker" physique. From birth until about a year, he was very sensitive to the offbrands, so he wore Huggies or Pampers. Eventually, we moved on to try other brands; however, the Cruiser were too expensive and many tabs broke. Regular Pampers were exactly the same as Luvs, but more expensive and stinky. Huggies are great because they absorb well, have stretchy sides, and are cinched in the back. Luvs & Pampers aren't cinched, which allows soft poopies to exit out of the top as well as show a little plumber's crack when bending over. PC not only has an uncinched back, but doesn't even have stretchy sides, and absorbtion is extremely lacking. WC was the best all around, stretchy sides, cinched back, great absorbtion, no funky smell, and an AWESOME price. I can't believe Walmart did this!!! I will check out the Target brand, and even if they aren't WC worthy, I will buy Huggies at a Target or another store...Walmart will no longer get my diaper money.

That stinks! I LOVE WC diapers. But I will switch to the Target brand. They are comparable in price and quality.

Just a nasty little heads up on the Huggies diapers - as was stated in the article, I bought a couple boxes of Huggies out of despiration until I could go to Target; however, more than half of each box has diapers with hard spots in them.  They are between the legs, in the front, and on the waistband.  And I'm not talking like they just need to be fluffed a little - they are hard and really stiff - so bad that I wouldn't think about putting that on my kids.  So, I called Huggies, and apparently that lot has had a lot of complaints about this.  So if you end up buying the 70 count boxes and have hard spots in the diapers, call Huggies, give them the lot number from packaging and they'll send you a coupon for a free box. 


And they said they had to remove diapers to keep the same quality.  I think not.  Shame, shame Huggies.

My 20 month old so far has been allerigic to every diaper except WC now this really stinks b/c I dont like the parents choice brand they leak.. and break her out. I'll have to try members mark and hope for the best. Why is this happening??
