Yes... I hated that smell for the first month... I wanted to puke every time I smelled them.
Try washing them with your diapers... I think that helped me. Maybe someone else has a better suggestion.
A year later they don't smell as bad, and I wash them with our clothes.
The world would be so boring if everyone were the same...
