Discuss: Four photos and a video

Translated Dutch: “Mommy, (I want) that one, that one, that one. Please.”

Question: Any bets on where the diapers were manufactured?

    I know that pampers has diaper manufacturing plants in the US (my dad is an engineer at one). So I would guess that they are actually made in the USA.

    Hmm, I’ve not noticed a ‘made in the USA’ label before, but perhaps it’s there. I googled the phrases “made in America” and “made in the USA” for pampers.com and came up with nothing. Does anyone know if everything that goes into a diaper (chemicals, materials, etc.) are from US sources? I’m surprised the news release about the diaper’s tie-in to the US Olympic team didn’t mention its American manufacturing. It’s a huge issue because America has outsourced so many of its manufacturing jobs.

    Here’s the link to find out where each of their products are manufactured in the US. You can also click through the various links to see what they manufacture in other countries.

    I’m probably a terrible person but I laughed at that video. Especially when the kid really got stuck. He sounds exactly like my 3 year old.

    Dutch: funny

    Kiducation: needs parenthesis to clarify what exactly they’re doing

    Dino: Oh, poor Admiral Akbar! “It’s a trap!”

    Diapers: China

    Video: mildly disturbing, but situational, I suppose. If it were the tenth time the kid jammed himself in behind the couch, I might be filming it too.

    Man… the video made me feel really bad for the kid!

    Procter & Gamble may have some manufacturing here in the US but the majority of it is outside of the US. They are in more than 80 countries. Also, P&G makes a tremendous variety of products so without additional research, it would be tough so say where those diapers are made. My guess it outside of the US. Did you realize they make Aussie shampoos and Braun razors, pantene, Olay, Vidal Sassoon, pregnancy tests, dog food, toothpaste, contact lenses, over the counter medications, anything and everything having to do with laundry,feminine hygiene products and of course, Pampers. They have a lot going on.

    The video was funny.

    Oh, as far as US sourced supplies and chemicals…most of the manufaturing materials are sourced from outside of the US.

    I think my favorite part of the video was when the boy said he didn’t want to tell how he got back there. That is SO like something my 3 year old would do. Tell me she doesn’t want to tell me and then when she does tell me, not a detail is missed!

    Iam a teenager and my mother still makes me wear thick cloth diapers and rubber panties and I am not allowed to change myself. I do sometimes wet my bed, but she says I need to wear them 24/7 in case I have an accident . Also she says it prevents me from playing with myself,and that is very importent .
