Considering changing diaper brands - any recommendations?

Hmmm lets see.....when my twin girls were newborns we used Pampers Swaddlers. When they got to about 5 months or so I tried Pampers Criusers and they leaked plus they felt like crepe paper (lol). I tried Huggies but they sagged so badly even after the first or second pee. Parents Choice (Walmart brand) are horrible in every way. I tried Luv's and they were the BEST plus they are cheaper than Pampers and Huggies which is great!

I live in Miami, Florida (U.S). I absolutely love huggies. Unlike Pampers,they dont break easily, they last longer... i mean my son can go and it holds. Same thing goes with the wipes. I cant stand pampers wipes either, they are thin... i have to use like 100 wipes to clean 1 poop mess. No way. Huggies all the way! LOL

I love Luvs, but we have had a lot of luck with Target and Toys R Us brands. I do not like the White Cloud diapers.
I will always try a small package of whatever is least expensive and just work my way up the price ladder until I find what I like.

huggies little movers are great. they are softer and not as stiff as the snug and dry. I also use pampers, fisher price happy days diapers and from time to time i will use parents choice from wal-mart. In Canada our pampers and huggies diapers run at the same price, and our parents choice diapers are awesome very soft, and very absorbent. that's all I really used for my daughter till she was about 8 months old. I have heard from friends in the US that their parents choice diapers are different than here but i know i loved them. Now that potty training has started we are using huggies slip on diapers during the day and huggies overnights and pampers extra protection for bedtime.

Im in australia so our nappy varieties differ from your some what, we do get huggies and pampers, target do their own but would be different to yours..
For me i love huggies,pampers and coles and snugglers when i am using disposables but by far cloth wins hands down..
I love my itti bitti dlish sio and tutto's and love bambooty's as well and baby beehinds also work great, they work well are absorbent and save you heaps in the long run, we just use disposables at night and now cos we move so my daughter is only in them for a few weeks whilst we move then shes back to having a cloth bum...
Cloth nappies by far in my opinion work better and save you alot of money and the work load isnt hard either...

I started out using Pampers for my daughter but I ended up going to Luvs. They are just as good as Pampers and a lot cheaper! Huggies leaked way too much for me and were too pricey! Walmart brand was horrible! They leaked all the time. I highly recommend Luvs. I buy them for all my friends and family who are having babies

WOW....here in australia Huggies are the best brand.....they never if rarely leak (not the ones here anyway) and they are the most expensive nappy here. we have only just started seeing pampers they are probably the next most expensive but i have never tried them... Snugglers, baby love, black and gold, etc all suck. they arent worth the pkt they come in but over here the coles or if you want to pay more for no difference the woolworths brand nappies are really good, i changed from huggies to woolies and then to coles...never had a leak and my boy CAN pee.... plus they are cheap...

Pampers all the way!!!! I have tried Luvs, Huggies, and Pampers are the best! They do not leak and I think they fit my son 5mos old the best! I use Pamper Swaddlers and Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive! As for wipes, though, I definitely prefer huggies! Yhey are thicker and stay moist! Good Luck!

I use pampers. I have tried many other brands and she leaks out EVERYTHING right through them all but pampers. The pampers swaddlers have never left a rash. I really think that all babies have a little differant body styles though, weight verses height, you should buy a small amount of a few differant kinds and see what works the best. If a cheaper brand works then go for it.

I love the huggies. and and Denise Robenolt was right when she said they were bigger in size when the baby is smaller but after they get into around a size 2 or 3 the huggies are really comperable in size to the others. The luvs brand is reallly good too. With that brand you get less of the urine smell.

We are TOTALLY a Luvs home!! I have a boy & a girl & even though all the different diaper brands that were given to us...always went back to Luvs! They are cheaper & hold up better to leaks. At about a year old we did use the Huggies "good nights" just for sleeping, they did hold more overnight. Good luck!

We swear by Huggies. We have tried Pampers and Luvs. I didn't really care for Luvs because of the more plastic type bottom they have. Pampers were good except for at night with us. My daughter sleeps almost 12 hours every night so we needed something that would hold a lot! Pampers seemed to always leak on her. We don't seem to have that problem with Huggies.

I do cloth diapers at home and during the day time hours. If i a m going out for a short period of time ill use cloth out but for the most part we stick to using them at home. At night we have used pampers, huggies and luvs and I dont seem to notice much difference between them. I love using the cloth at home though!!!! it saves so much money and are very easy to use!!! i was a little unsure of using them at first but my aunt makes them so i promised her id give them a try and i think they are great. she sells them too if you are intersted in trying them. her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. she cheaper then most places ive seen!

we have used both and love pampers. Huggies worked at first too .. but I find the stage 3 are too big around the bum and leak out the sides. Pampers just seem to fit my daughter better. I haven't tried costco brand but would like to. Good luck

pampers are cheaper and they do the job for the most part! they hold through the night for my boys but they aren't the greatest in texture when they ARE wet. Huggies are good for comfort when they are wet and they do seem to hold pretty well & none of my kids were allergic to them or luvs. but pampers is a good brand too it's just that my first 2 always got a rash around the entire diaper area. not a "diper rash" but a bumpy kind. they were allergic to them. but my youngest is in luvs now :) they do pretty well for having to buy diapers for 2 boys right now lol.
we originally did pampers, but the chemicals gave our little girl a rash. We switched to Huggies and have been completely happy since, but I am switching her to cotton nappies now that all the drama is over.
PS - my Doula informed me that they change the ingredients to nappies every few months or so, so what works now may not in the future and vice versa.

as crazy as it seems i like th e parents choice brand from wallmart..the regular ones gave my little one a rach but the scooters( for active babies) do the trick and we havn'et had a problem since and they are way more affordable on our income than brand name diapers..

Pampers all the way! I tried the Huggies and my son kept leaking. I went through so many clothing changes with Huggies I stopped using them. My husband wants to go back to the Huggies just because they are cheap and you can get them at Costco - but I would rather spend a couple of extra dollars on the diapers than the extra laundry detergent. Go Pampers!

I use earth's best. No chlorine, no dyes, no purfume and leave no gel on her! I love them! Just a thought if you wanted to go the natural route. You can get them online at diapers.com and they have free delivery on any order over $49.

I use both Pampers and Huggies, this time around I appreciate the extra elastic at the top in the back to catch most poop squirts. Three years ago I tried the Target ones and didn't use more than 1 diaper before giving them to the ped doc as they were so hard and stiff. I have also tried the Costco ones with free samples and thought they were really nice, like huggies...
Its never too late to start cloth diapering. Have you seen all the cool contemporary cloth diapers available!?!
If cloth isn't for you (though its so much easier than one would think), Walgreens has their own brand diaper. Its awesome. So much cheaper than those name brands, yet as dependable, and often on sale. We used those for two years before making the switch.

With my first I used Pampers because I found that they don't leave the jellies but with my second who is 5 months I use Huggies because you can get them at costco and it is cheaper by 2 cents per diaper! lol I find that sometimes the jellies are on him though. I haven't found any other brands that I am willing to use though...

We are Pampers people. We received a HUGE box of Huggies as a shower gift, and didn't care for them. I think once my son is bigger, they might work, but they are just too large in size compared to Pampers. LOL. I'd like to try LUVs at some point too, but for now, we love the Pampers! I've also heard that the Target brand diapers are good too, but I haven't tried them, so I can't give my personal opinion on that! Good Luck!
