Japaneese diapers -Where to buy/order?

Hello, moms.
I'm searching for a place where I can order Japaneese diapers - Moony, Merries, Goon or Genki.
Pampers are horrible and smell disgusting. May be somewhere in Germany.

Re: Japaneese diapers -Where to buy/order?

ebay or amazon? but looks like they are horribly expensive. i agree about pampers but have you tried other brands? i really like moltex. some of the in-house brands are ok, too.

Amazon de sells these diapers, ship to an address in constance or jestetten and pick up by your next visit over the border.

Amazon FR has them as well (might be the same sellers as the DE site suggested above).

Try Japaneese and you will know. Anlike Pampers they do not smell either before and after use. They pleasant to the touch. The pants don't fall off. They have indicator line so you see when they are full.

My child asks now before going to bed what it is that smells. Funny, yeah.

Bearing in mind that urine after it leaves the body heats up, I`d be wary of allowing a child to continue lugging around litres of old urine in a nappy.
Especially not healthy for little boys, as can cause sterility.

A nappy should be regularly changed - not waiting to reach an "indicator" line!
If the nappy smells so bad, then its not the nappy, its what`s inside!
And the skin is a "breathing" organ - so again - not healthy at all.

Did you know you can use old urine to bleach leather? It gets very strong with age.

Re: Japaneese diapers -Where to buy/order?

I just discovered this Japanese website:

http://global.rakuten.com/en/

I don't have any experience with them. I saw it on WSJ (http://www.wsj.com/articles/rakuten-...55942?mod=e2tw), so it seems legit, but I think it also work with sellers (like amazon), so be careful.

Maybe the prices are nice but the shipment may be too expensive or take too long to arrive... Just check and if you end up using it, report back

Japanese disposable nappies shipped to Switzerland: quite expensive.

The fact that someone thinks this is necessary: priceless.



OP: do you get your water bottled from Fiji too?

Re: Japaneese diapers -Where to buy/order?

im sure you have thought of this.... But have you thought about switching to reusable nappies?
The modern ones don't need pins, they fasten with Velcro. It is also possible to buy flushable liners. So the solid waste can be flushed down the toilet. Then the nappy goes in the bucket. I used Tots Bots when my children were little and I loved them.
Time wise it's probably more practical if you are not working because of the extra washing but they work out cheaper and can be used by later children.
I have also heard good things about Lidl own brand nappies but I'm not sure a out the smell.

I don't know how it relates to the topic, but thank you for enlightenment.

Re: Japaneese diapers -Where to buy/order?

I have 3 kids, the last one still in nappied, and I've nerver, as in never ever, notcied that Pampers had a smell!

Obviously, after my baby went n2, it smells like a long dead rodent in there, but it's actually a good indicator that he needs to be changed before his bum gets all irritated in there...

Oh, we left a pile of washable at home. Didn't work for us. They don't last through the night and leak. And you need to wash them immediately, it's a kind of inconvenience even with washing machine at home. Here I can't find one with the dryer that will fit a spare room in my bathroom (545x450mm), thus I have to use the laundry room in the basement.

come over, smell the difference) I have one japaneese left.
A new Pampers does have a very intense chemical smell. And that's the stuff that contacts baby's skin 24/7.

I appreciate your concerns and of course every parent will have a preferred choice of diapers , but I have been using Pampers for my two boys for years without any side effects. There is no "chemical stuff" touching skin. My child is still normal and has not turned into a mutant yet

Some info on the materials used in Pampers in case you wonder

Importing diapers from Japan is just a step too far for me, really.

Re: Japaneese diapers -Where to buy/order?

Must say I agree Don P. Hopefully, with Spring, warm weather and sunshine- you will soon be able to get little one out of nappies -problem solved. My kids grew up in the days of the big terry nappies- kept in a smelly Napisan bucket until the trip to the launderette... we did potty train early, and for good reasons

In independent tests done by Bon ŕ Savoir consumer association in Switzerland, Pampers did come out best all round though.

Really? I used all sorts of disposable nappies, pampers included, and never ever noticed a chemical smell. Must admit I never tried the Japanese ones though. I have no idea why anyone would think of importing nappies all the way from Japan. It's not really environmentally friendly and is a pretty expensive option too.

Millions of babies have pampers or similar touching their skin every day and I've not seen any reports of widespread problems caused by it.

Huggies was our preferred brand because the fit worked best for the shape of our son but we did use washable nappies in the daytime during the summer and loved them. Winter baby and no dryer made us choose disposables for the first few months.

I used to love Pampers as a baby, I never had nappy rash. Ever.
