Dad's warning as son's nappy 'explodes' overnight after leaving baby in 'hysterics'.

When you put your child to bed at night, you probably feel comforted by the knowledge that there's little trouble they can cause from inside their bed or cot. But it turns out they can still find themselves in some pretty worrying situations just ask, Eran Eitan, a 36-year-old father from Randwick in Sydney, who awoke to the sounds of his 23-month-old son Dov hysterically crying in bed. After going to investigate he discovered that the youngster's Huggies nappy had 'exploded' overnight.
The dad, who works as a graphic designer, was shocked to see that the nappy had burst open, covering his son in gelatine crystals after just seven hours of wear. Taking to social media, the father-of-two, shared his concerns about the new Mickey Mouse Ultra Dry range - which Huggies claim should last up to 12 hours. He said: "It was very upsetting to find my kid like this. It just exploded with crystals all over him, he was wet up to his chest inside his onesie and very stressed."It's totally unacceptable that he had to experience this - not to mention dangerous. Who knows what they put in those crystals?"
The parent went on to reveal that he doesn't normally use these particular nappies, but has instead been purchasing Huggies Winnie The Pooh range for years. However, he decided to try something new when his regular purchase was discontinued. He claims he contacted Huggies to ask if their new product was of a lower quality following the incident, but they denied they were any different. He now hopes to shed some light on the situation and make other parents aware of potential risks.
Huggies told me the crystals are kid friendly and not a safety hazard but said if he swallows them to take him to the hospital, which is a bit of a contradiction and a bit concerning."Now other parents are coming forward on social media to say they are having the same problem. They are clearly not the same quality."A spokesperson for Huggies said: "We recently launched an updated version of our Huggies Ultra Dry range - featuring a new Mickey and Minnie outer-cover, which replaced the previous Winnie the Pooh graphics.
"This was purely a change to the outer-cover and importantly, no changes were made to the existing absorbency specifications."They added: "We have received some calls and social media posts from parents asking questions about the recent changes. We take product quality matters very seriously and have been dealing with these consumers directly to discuss their individual queries."As part of this process, consumers are sending back samples so that our quality control team can review these, in addition to all new products manufactured at our local facility."To date, we have not identified any manufacturing or quality concerns associated with the updated range.
