Guest blogger Ronda Kaysen: A federal investigation into Pampers Dry Max diapers did not find a link between the new line of diapers and diaper rash, investigators said today.

When Proctor and Gamble unveiled its new diapers last spring, they unleashed the wrath of angry parents who complained that the new, slimmer diapers caused diaper rash so severe that some compared it to chemical burns. Outraged parents called for a Dry Max boycott on a Facebook fan pagethat is now 11,400 members strong. From April through August 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission received nearly 4,700 complaints about diaper rash, thus sparking an official investigation. Nearly 85 percent of the complaints came in May; after that, they dropped off significantly.

Investigators reviewed clinical and toxicological data, the results of an irritation-patch study that P&G had conducted and chemistry, toxicology and pediatric-medicine information provided by Health Canada.

In the end, the investigators found no clear link between diaper rash and Dry Max. But the CPSC did note that some babies may have sensitive skin or develop a rash from close contact with the materials in Dry Max or another brand of diapers. The agency suggests that any parent who thinks that a specific brand of diaper is causing a rash should switch brands.

I was wondering if you ever considered adjusting the design of your site? Its well written; I really like what youve got to state. But maybe you can add a a bit more in the way of written content so people might connect with it better. Youve got a great deal of text for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?
