Local Mom Finds Glass in Baby’s Diaper – Shards of Glass in Wipes Too

SPRING HILL – Angela Baker and her Sister Heather Talmadge are both young mothers with children still in the diaper stage. Last week Angela contacted RNRF, after she says a piece of glass was found on her nephew’s testicles while changing his diaper. Shocked at the alarming discovery, Angela says they contacted Huggies to complain. In response, Huggies asked that the piece of glass be sent to their lab so they could determine how it might have made it into the packaging. Meanwhile, Huggies sent Angela a prepaid Visa card, refunding the cost of a box of diapers. However, the “glass” concern didn’t end there.


While using Huggies Wipes on their children, Heather and Angela both noticed what appeared to be glass shards embedded in the wipes. We asked Angela if any of the children experienced rashes after using the wipes and she said “Yes, my kids have rashes from the wipes but we never thought anything of it, until we stopped using them on my niece and the rash went away… When we started using them again the rash came back.”

Huggies made national headlines in recent months, after several concerned parents complained about possible glass shards found in Huggies Baby Wipes.

Micah Lanae Kurtenbach of Lincoln, Nebraska, wrote “These are cuts on my son’s bottom. I at first thought it was a weird rash but when I checked I found large shards of glass that I was able to pick out with my fingers!” Kurtenback provided a picture of her child’s rash that appears to be small cuts.


Melinda Kerr of Kaneohe, Hawaii, wrote “I found glass in my natural care wipes!” Kerr provided a photograph of what she says is a piece of glass.


In a statement on their Facebook page, Huggies replied “As some of you may have heard, a concern about our wipes was raised recently on Facebook. We take any concerns about our products very seriously and we are working directly with this parent to learn more about what happened and how we can help. Nothing is more important than the safety of the little ones who use our products.

Angela and Heather trust that Huggies will resolve the problem but for now they’ve stopped using Huggies products.

  • Yeah this sounds sketchy.

  • Here’s a thought: if a particular brand of diaper or wipe causes a rash, try a different one. Just some advice from a Mom of 4, former foster mother of 25 and grandma of one. Smh.

  • I’m sorry but I knew both those girls and wouldn’t trust them as far as I could throw them. They even lied about being sisters so why wouldn’t they lie about this?

  • Just say in, good question. The same thought entered my mind as well. Kind of a quinkydink.

  • I have my doubts about this Spring Hill incident. A story just like this one broke on the news either last night or this morning. Did these girls contact Huggies or Tom first? My inquiring mind wants to know.

  • There goes Huggies….

  • I think its the diapers too. Around the same time my son started experiencing the same thing , except from the diapers. . When i took the diapers off n let him run around in shorts, it cleared up. So i stopped using them after a few times going through this, n moved to some spare diapers i had. now hes cleared up. (:
    The day after taking the huggie diapers completely away, i started seeing fb post. So im just saying it might be a concern for parents too. It looks like tiny scratches irrated pretty bad, and is a good possibility. . .
