We started off on Parent's Choice by Walmart. But we moved to Loves after about a month and I swear by them.

Just a few weeks ago I went to Walgreen's to get diapers and they didn't have any Loves diapers so I grabbed up some Pampers. They said super absorbent and holds up to 12 hours so I figured they would be ok. My daughter wears size 4 in Loves brand. And so I got size 4 in Pampers. They are NOT the same. The pampers where not as big as the size 4 Loves and because I couldn't afford to buy a different type until payday we had to deal with it for about 2 weeks. My daughter now has a diaper rash/infection. I hate Pampers! Loves are super absorbent and fit great and are perfect, as long as your child doesn't have super sensitive skin (because they are scented, but it doesn't irritate my daughter)

What is everyone else's opinions on diaper brands?

I love Pampers Cruisers. and The Huggies overnight. Tried Luvs they leak overnight. Pampers are great. Using a a two different types for day and night have been working fine for us.

pampers baby dry work the best for us...target brand works well too, they are very similar. we tried huggies in the early days and they are the only diapers that we had blow outs with. we also tried walmart brand but they fit too snug and gave my daugther diaper rash. it really depends on your babies shape....my daughter has a bit of a booty so we need a diaper that accomodates that. i do use huggies overnights for overnight but i think i would use pampers if anyone carried them around my house.

I swear by Pampers all the way! When our first daughter was born, we got quite a variety of diapers from the baby shower. Huggies leaked big time, Luvs made her break out in a rash, and the wal-mart brand just got so saggy and weighed her down! We have used Pampers Swaddlers until they were 7 months and then switched to the Cruisers right after. Great absorbency, no leaks, and they fit all 3 of my girls like a glove. The Huggies leaked every night for 5 nights, so i finally donated them.

I use Luvs during the day & Huggies Overnites during the night to prevent leaks.

We started with Huggies when he was really little. He leaked out of every one. Then we tried Target brand. Same thing. Pampers were the only ones he didn't leak out of. So we were using Pampers until about a month ago when we tried Target again because they were cheaper. They don't leak, but I've noticed he has gotten diaper rash a few times. I also started him on milk so I thought it was that. Now I'm wondering if it's the Target diapers. We're going to use the rest of the pack we have and try a different brand and see if the rash comes back.

I like Wegmans.....They are really good....My daughter has been teething so sometimes she has loose movements....thay are very absorbent and fit to size. I switch back and forth between huggies and wegmans. I get coupons in the mail for Huggie diapers.

all diapers are different. I used huggies when my son was little because they fit his bigger bum better than the other brands. My daughter breaks out with any diaper that has a scent so huggies naturals work. We actally just buy wal-mart brand...no scent and very absorbant and $13 for 96 diapers. Most other brands are $5-$10 more. I have been staying away from pampers because she was allergic to the absorbant chemical formula they use in the fluff...and now that it is sprayed on the diaper instead of just being in the fluff there is no way she would be able to use pampers.

My son was a Huggies baby since birth. Now at almost 13 months old, I use Luvs.They fit him much better than Huggies. He has a little butt, but a Buddha belly. The Luvs stretch better around his tummy, while not being saggy in the butt. No leaks during the day, yet, and my kid pees a lot. I still use Huggies Overnight for the nights.

I use Pampers for my son, since he has very sensitive skin, as well, and breaks out when he uses Huggies. I tried cloth (what I truly wanted to use), but he ended up with such horrible diaper rash that he went without diapers at all for a week, and had to use meds to get back to normal. I think that it really depends on your child's skin.Every child is different.

we tried huggies newborn at first as these were bought for us but stopped using them after crystals leaked onto our babies bum. We now use pampers baby dry at night and if out and about. when at home we use cloth nappies - bumgenius and blueberry minkys. love using cloth nappies as we hardly ever have to buy disposables and are able to get them when they are on offer so buying pampers ends up costing about the same as the cheaper ones!

Pampers have been great for my sensitive bummed boys. They have the super absorbent kind that aren't any more expensive and depending on the color (teal or purple) the sizes are different so best to go with the weight measurements on the box. I find the Purple boxes to be most absorbent, largest in size and softest on the outside for comfort on their legs. :-)
Good luck!

we use pampers baby dry diapers during the day and pampers "overnight" diapers at night time to avoid leaks during my daughter's long 11 hour bedtime. we have tried luvs, and she had a bad reaction to them. i tend to stick to what i know works best for us, despite the cost. but for someone looking for less expensive diapers, i hear up and up by target is great!

I use Kirkland brand diapers from Costco because it is very absorbent, inexpensive and it comes in bulk. YAY! I have used pampers and Huggies, but none worked as good as Costco. I highly recommend them.

We have tried Huggies, but my daughter breaks out very easily with them. We've also tried the Fisher-Price brand, but they didn't seem as absorbent and she leaked through every day. Our go-to is Up and Up (Target brand). They are about half price compared to Pampers (which we also used for a while and liked- but they are expensive) and are really absorbent- no leaks with them yet. And they're cute little polka-dots!

I love Huggies in my eyes nothing is better. She is able to sleep threw the night without being wet. They fit nice and snug and there is barely any leaks. I tried Luvs but as soon as she peed, she was soaked. I hated Luvs. I swear by Huggies aka Lil Movers. Has anyone tried the new jeans that Huggies has?

Actually pampers work great for us. The regular ones always leaked and I like that they aren't as thick as the huggies and I like the way that they fit my son who is also in a size 4. It depends on the baby I guess. I love them

modern cloth nappies! (if you can afford to start using them) they're great. fit well, no irritations, easy to clean, great for the environment and saves $$$ in the long run. start with one and slowly build up. i started using them last year and they are wonderful.

I use the Fisher-Price brand from Babies R Us. I love them! They are super absorbent and have colors for the tabs so you know if you're placing them on too tight or too loose. And the packs come with overnight diapers as well that have extra absorbency so you don't have to worry about leaks during the night.

I've used Huggies (Little Movers/Snugglers) for my son since he was born.. Since he started walking, friends have recommended Pampers Cruisers, and I totally dislike them! It seems like I'm constantly changing his diaper because he always feels soaked! I mean, he hasn't leaked, but like I can feel a squishy-ness from his diaper if I hold him. I've heard great things about Luvs, but have yet to try them..

Huggies is are our favorite. Pampers aren't as absorbent and I had more pooexplosions with them when he was younger. I use little movers and they don't sag like the Pampers do. I'm never changing brands again!

Huggies all the way...no leaks or accidents..switched from Pampers at about 8 months and will never go back! but I do hear good things about the Costco Kirkland brand as well, but I am scared to switch because I love my Huggies so much!

I use Luvs during the day and Pampers Baby Dry at night. For my daughter, the Luvs have a tendency to leak overnight. And the Pampers Baby Dry have a tendency to sag during the day (in my experience, the Pampers are BIGGER than the Luvs... interesting). So, one for night and one for day has worked great for her for at least 6 months.
