I’ve seen the commercial a few times now and every time I see it I feel gross. In case you’ve been living under a rock with no TV, here it is:
Now I will give Huggies points for creativity, but really it is just weird for a baby boy to be garnering those looks from adults, especially adult women. More importantly, though, those diaper jeans are just tacky. I mean, really, moms? Are you sending your baby out anywhere with just a diaper on? If not, what’s wrong with Sesame Street characters?
Really, I feel like these diaper jeans just give moms reason to send their little one out Lady Gaga-style (pants-free, that is) and that is one of my personal pet peeves. You don’t come out of the house without your pants, so why send your kid out like that?
And when there are so many really cute denim options available for babies, do we really need a diaper that looks like an ugly pair of acid wash jeans? NO! These are so much cuter, please buy them instead of those horrendous diaper jeans.
If you do insist on sending your little one out with just a diaper on, please at least rub down his/her legs with one of the best sunscreens for kids to keep burns at bay. And throw on a pair of the best kids’ sunglasses while you’re at it.
