Rascal + Friends vs. All Good Diapers
I was recently talking to a friend who just had a baby and we were trying to narrow down some "must have" baby items. Of course diapers were on the top of the list. I have gone through my fair share of diaper brands since my son was born. He's currently 2.5 years old and we're in the middle of potty training. I remember being so overwhelmed buying diapers when he was first born. I had no idea there were so many brands on the market and they all claimed to be the most premium, comfortable, absorbent, etc. We've tried it all! Every single brand from Pampers, Huggies, Hello Bello, Coterie, Dyper, Millie Moon, Rascal + Friends, and more.
Today I wanted to do a side-by-side comparison on two very popular brands that are available at Walmart. Let's put them to the test and see their quality, comfort, absorbency and price!
A look inside the diaper
You can see the diapers main different right off the bat! The inside of Rascal + Friends are significantly softer than the All Good Diapers. The All Good Diapers are also significantly thinner. Rascal + Friends uses a unique 3D core Technology and liquid dispersion to prevent sneaky leeks. I searched everywhere on Walmart and the All Good Diapers website but couldn't really see what their difference on absorbency claim was other than, "cushy soft and crazy absorbent." So let's see how absorbent they were in comparison to each other!
How many cups of water can each diaper brand hold before it started to leak?
The most important aspect to diapers is the absorbency! Every diaper brand claims to have the most absorbent diaper or premium and their prices can be so expensive. So I decided to compare each brand to a pour test! I mixed a gallon of water into a pitcher with blue food coloring so we could see the results clearly. Then I poured a cup of water into a measuring cup before pouring it into the diaper. I poured the water back and forth to see how it would absorb.
Rascal + Friends: A whopping 4 cups of water! I could have pushed it to 5 cups if I let it sit for a few minutes. After about two minutes at 4 cups of water, it was fully absorbed and barely damp! I moved the diaper around back and forth and nothing budged out of it. It's great to see how dry and absorbent it was. I can see how our son can sleep seamlessly throughout the night.
All Good Diapers: It struggled to hold about 2 cups of water. It took about five to six minutes before it absorbed into the diaper. It was still very damp. It did leak quite a bit after I shook and moved it around back and forth. I remember having to change our son more frequently and having leaks throughout the nighttime.
SIzing, fitting & comfort
Rascal + Friends diapers were a little thicker and longer. One thing I did notice was that the absorbency length on the Rascal + Friends diaper goes from the front where the tabs secure all the way to his back which makes practically the full length of the diaper. I can see how helpful that is to containing the nasties until the next diaper change. The All Good Diapers were significantly more thin and the absorbency inside was the front where the tabs secure and ends at his tailbone which is probably why he leaked out of them so much before. Both brands had very strong and comparable tabs.
Overall we have used both brands for a long time. We used All Good Diapers for about six months. We made the switch to Rascal + Friends a little over a year ago. I will have to say in the entire time our son has been in diapers, we have been the most happy with Rascal + Friends. There hasn't been any issues with leaks, blow outs or discomfort. Hands down, I would continue to use Rascal + Friends because of the affordability and absorbency!
Although Rascal + Friends diapers can absorb 4 cups of liquid, I never leave him in them for that long. It gives us a peace of mind to know that we didn't have to purchase "nighttime" diapers or worry about leaks and blow outs. Hands down, we recommend Rascal + Friends over All Good Diapers based on the reasons stated above! Feel free to drop us a comment if you have any questions!
Purchase Rascal + Friends diapers and training pants at most local Walmart stores or Walmart.com
This post was made in partnership with Rascal + Friends but contains 100% of my honest opinion. Although we partner with Rascal + Friends, we do purchase a good amount of their diapers/training pants for friends and family.
