I was given the opportunity to test out Well Beginnings diapers and wipes through the Massive Sway sampling campaign. Well Beginnings is a line of products for babies and toddlers that are exclusive to Walgreens. They claim to display the same quality as the more popular baby product brands, but at a fraction of the cost.
I used the size 5 diapers on my very active almost-2-year-old son. He wore them throughout the day and during the night. I was surprised at well these held up! As far as thickness and quality, I would say they are a step-up from the Huggies Snug & Dry…but not as thick and durable as the Huggies Little Movers. We also didn’t encounter any rashes or irritation. The designs are pretty simple – just some giraffes doing yoga or something. Designs on diapers are not a big deal to me or my kids, so this really isn’t even a factor when it comes to diaper buying decisions.
The wipes also held up well. I didn’t have any rips or tears during my review and the scent is very subtle. I really liked the packaging on the wipes, too. Instead of just a lift-up flap, you can press the button and the lid flings up on its own. Fancy.
The pricing is very reasonable compared to other brands. A standard pack of wipes goes for $1.99 and a box goes for $8.79. A box of 70 diapers (size 5) goes for $16.99.
Overall, I was pleased with this product and surprised that I had good results from a drugstore brand. The only negative is that I don’t really live close to a Walgreens. I live much closer to Costco and Target and would probably shop there first before travelling out of my way to a Walgreens. But I’m glad to know that this brand works in case I am travelling and happen to be near a Walgreens. You can learn more about this brand and shop here.
What do you think? Would you try a drugstore brand of diapers/wipes?
