As a parent, finding a diaper that worked well and was priced right was key for our family. Rascal + Friends asked me to review their diapers to see if they could help prevent leaks at a reasonable price.
Who is Rascal + Friends?
Rascal + Friends is a line of diapers, training pants, and wipes founded by a mom of four kids in New Zealand. They are made for littles ones to play in by day, sleep through the night without leaks, that are made without any harsh chemicals, fit snuggly, and cost a fair price.
What should I look for when buying diapers?
I have a check list of things I look for when trying to choose a disposable diaper brand over another. Here are the main items I look at:
- Softness and fit
- Environmental footprint
Knowing leaks will be at a minimum is a key factor when choosing a diaper for my son. An absorbent diaper takes one less item off the long list of things parents worry about for their child.
A comfy diaper is vital for my guy because he is wearing it all day. I would like for it to feel soft against his skin. It should also fit to allow him to move without worrying about the diaper harming his baby soft skin.
I like knowing what I am putting on my son’s delicate skin is not harming him or the environment. I want to make sure his diaper is not harming his skin.
Cost is one of the most important factors I look at when buying diapers. I want to know that the diapers I am buying is worth what I am spending on them.
What Sets Rascal + Friends Apart from Other Diapers
Rascal + Friends want parents to know they have you covered for life’s messier moments with a little one. Their products do not contain any harsh chemicals, latex, lotions, or fragrances. Instead, these diapers use water-based inks, soft materials, and are dermatologically certified. This is so they are safe and gentle to your child’s sensitive skin and to the environment.
For comfort, these diapers also offer numerous features to make rest and play fun for young ones. Each one has the following:
- A stretchy high back waist
- Soft legs cuffs
- A breathable outer-layer
- 3 layers of protection
- A wetness indicator (available only in Size 1 and 2 diapers)
- An absorbent 3D Core
- Unique Deep Pockets
- Double leak guards
- Strong Grip Tabs
The price for these diapers is also a positive reason to consider buying this brand. My son is currently wearing a Size 4 diaper. For the value, I have the Super Value Pack of this brand that holds 180 diapers. My son took about three weeks to use all of these diapers. I do not have to think about buying as many diapers as I once had.
Rascal + Friends – CoCoMelon Partnership
One of the next steps my son will taking soon will be transitioning from diapers to using a potty. A tool I used to help my other children complete this task is a training pant.
A tip I discovered when making the transition from diapers to the potty is that learning should be fun. Rascal + Friends teamed up with CoCoMeleon to help kids at this stage make potty training a more fun experience. Rascal + Friends now features training pants with JJ and his friends! Little ones can now see these cute characters while learning to become more independent.
These Rascal + Friends training pants are made to allow young children to move with ease during the day and make it through the night without leaking. Feather-soft material, a low cost, and the limited edition CoCoMelon print make them an idea choice for parents to consider when buying training pants for your child.
I also downloaded this helpful potty training chart from Rascal + Friends to help my little guy get through this part of toddlerhood.
Rascal + Friends Diapers Review
I am very happy with the Rascal + Friends size 4 diapers my son took for a test drive. They checked off the items I look for when choosing a diaper for him to wear.
These diapers are very absorbent. I checked a few times if he was wet after a few hours of play. This was because the diaper trapped the liquid he deposited into them and not becoming bigger. The tabs that keep the diaper closed do not seem very strong, but they have stayed closed each time my son wore them until it was time to change him.
This feature also helped him in the comfort department. Since these diapers keep liquid in so well, they also allow for my guy to move around easily. I also liked that Rascal + Friends diapers fit a bit bigger around the waist. They allow a bit more give for my son when he is bent over at the waist.
I am happy that Rascal + Friends does not use harsh chemicals and fragrances in their premium diapers. These items could harm my child’s skin or the environment.
One thing I would change about these diapers is the leak liner inside the diaper. When you open it, the liner folds outwards. I found I would have to adjust the liner so it faces inwards to make sure it protects against any potential accidents.
Rascal + Friends Wipes Review
Rascal + Friends takes care of babies in another way. They also help parents care for their little ones with their sensitive baby wipes.
These Rascal + Friends baby wipes are strong to help give a hand to wipe away rascally messes. They are also dermatologically certified, ph balanced, and fragrance free. This allows for a gentle clean without worrying about irritating your young one’s sensitive skin.
