Truth: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rite Aid Tugaboos diapers.
More truth: If I didn’t like these diapers, I would not have written about them.
Listen, I am a diaper snob. It’s true. When I had my son in 2009, I firmly believed that cash-money beget dry bottoms; only the most expensive disposable diaper would do. Then when my little lady made her appearance 22 months later, I was still all she shall have only the best!
And then my bank account cried.
So when I got the chance to try Rite Aid’s Tugaboos, I was excited to get free diapers, but I didn’t expect to like them. Like, really like them.
I immediately noticed that Tugaboos are longer than the diapers we had been using, which is great because my gal has her Mama’s badonkadonk so the extra length and stretchy sides come in handy! Another thing my daughter inherited from me? Sensitive skin. If the wind whips my hair into my face, it fo’ reals leaves a welt. I’m talkin’ serious sensitive skin. The Tugaboos are soft AND hypoallergenic so I’m pretty much the best mother ever to have swathed my precious girl’s behind in such amazing diapers. You know, 24-months after her debut diaper-wearing…
What really surprised me about the Tugaboos was how absorbent they are. My daughter fell asleep one evening before I had the chance to change her into an overnight diaper. I was worried, but not so worried that I was willing to risk waking a sleeping toddler. Are you crazy?!
So I crossed my fingers and whaddya know?! The next morning she was dry. I never in a million years expected a store-brand diaper to take one for the team for that amount of time. Or pee. I was thoroughly impressed.
Not that this is relevant to the reliability or comfort of the diaper, but it makes my gal happy so it’s worth mentioning: she loves the “kitties” on the Tugaboos; she gives her best roar when she sees them (super adorable), and she enjoys having a choice between the “tiger in the grass” or the “tiger ready to pounce.”
And what do I love most about Tugaboos? The important life lesson they have taught me:
I do not have to spend a lot of money for good diapers.

Now you tell me?!!! I finally got Ana out of diapers, and I spent a small fortune during those years! Well, at least I can pass this on to my cousin who has a tight budget and a three month old. Thanks!
Thanks for reading and commenting, Kim! Good luck to your cousin 🙂

I always bought the pampers, would have been great to know I didn’t have to spend $20 bucks just to catch my kids stuff. Who woulda thought? Love the tiger Roar BTW 🙂
RIGHT?! I’m all about saving money so I can drink more Starbucks 😉

Yup, seriously so could have used this information when my girls were still in diapers. Seriously, I spent an arm and a leg on Huggies and Pampers brands. I swear I was single handedly supporting them for over 3 years. Wonderful post though and great information for all those mamas of babies and toddlers still in diapers. Thanks for sharing!! 🙂
Thank YOU for reading!!

Ohhhh so cute! Never understood why people thought they had to buy the most expensive diaper. It’s holding POOP!!! i always started with the store brand and only switched if I had an issue. It didn’t hurt that one of my daughters actually WAS allergic to that super expensive brand. Frugal is in her genes. I too tried out that tugaboos and they were fantastic!! I loved how light and thin they actually were. And unfortunately so did my daughter. #nopottytraininginsite
RIGHT?!! Why do I care what brand holds poop?!
Kathy Radigan says
I feel like a fool to admit this but in my almost 10 years of having kids in diapers I never tried a store brand,. I have to say you changed my mind with your review, plus I know this sounds silly but I wouldn’t have expected a store brand to look so cute! I will be sure to tell my friends who still have little ones about Rite Aid Diapers! Thanks!!
Kathy, I totally agree about the appearance of these things! I don’t know what I was expecting: cardboard?! Hahaha!
Thanks so much for reading and commenting 😉
Good find! Rite-Aid, here we come! 🙂
I would not lead you astray, friend!

I wish this post was around 4 years ago – I shudder at how much I spent on brand-name diapers. Sigh. GREAT review!!!
I appreciate you stopping by, JD! You’re swell!! xo

I was a fan of store brand diapers, because I was pleased with their performance, and because I prefered spending my money on Oreos.
You always know what to say. I love that about you.
Wish we had a Rite Aid in AZ!
Thanks for reading, Kylee! Lemme know if I need to ship you some tigers!! 😉
