I thought we had tried them all. I really had.
With four kids in diapers, I couldn't think of any brands we hadn't tried....but guess what?? I found another one, and wanted to share it with you!
Safeway has a great diaper brand called, Mom to Mom.
I was thrilled to get my hands on a package to run through our strict quality control testing process. In other words, I lined our quadruplets up, and changed each of them into a size 4 Mom to Mom diaper.
Have you ever been in a house with four 3-year-olds? Yeah, it's chaos. My kids rarely sit down, so my number one diaper need is no leaks. I need a diaper that keeps poop in and the sandbox out. I need a diaper that fits my kids well, and absorbs everything it comes in contact with. I need a diaper that doesn't create more laundry for me. Please, no more laundry.
So we did a little experiment. I thought it would be fun to do one of those absorbency tests in our own personal lab (a.k.a. our preschool table). Just how much liquid will these diapers hold?
And, of course, I had my four assistants help me with our experiment.

The average three-year-old's bladder can hold 5 oz/150 ml, so that was the absorbency that I was hoping for even though people tend to void way before they reach full capacity. But still, assuming one of my kids *did* try to meet full capacity, I wanted to know that these diapers could handle it.
(If you are wondering, I totally researched how much urine a three-year-old can hold. Hey, you can't argue the scientific facts, right?)
I filled a small measuring cup with water and green food coloring, which I kept firmly in my control. I then poured 1 oz of tinted water at a time into a medicine cup, and let the kids take turns pouring it onto the diaper. They loved helping me with this!
Happily, the diaper easily held 5 oz/150 ml!
No water pooling on top of the diaper at 5 oz!
For kicks, I kept pouring. At 7 oz, the diaper was very full and heavy, and at 8 oz, every bit of it was saturated. Then I just let it sit there for awhile to see if it would leak through to the other side with that much water in it. Not a leak in sight! Even though it was very full and heavy at 8 oz, I was still impressed that it could hold that much water.
Of course, dumping food-coloring tinted water in a diaper isn't as accurate as putting the diaper on a preschooler's rump. So when we were finished with our experiment, had eaten dinner, cleaned up the living room twice, and watched our new VeggieTales movie, I checked our four test subjects for leakage and absorbency.
Our experiment was a success! Everyone still had on dry pants, and no one had created more laundry for me to do. In true scientific form, two of my kids even went #2 for testing purposes. It (very, very thankfully!) held that without any problems as well!
In all seriousness though, I like having the Safeway Mom to Mom brand diapers as an option. They are more affordable than other brands, have great leak protection, and as a bonus, the diaper liners are hypoallergenic with vitamin E and aloe.
Plus, my kids think it's really cool to dump water on a diaper and watch it soak right up!
Have you heard of or tried Safeway's Mom to Mom brand diapers? Let me know your experience in the comments!
