I heard the diapers at toys r us are sometimes cheaper. You buy 9 & get the 10th free, but is it really cheaper. I normally get mine at walmart & use coupons

My son always leaks through Huggies brand. He likes the Pampers, and Walgreens has a store brand that is also very affordable. I really recommend the rewards program for Toys R Us/Babies R Us because for every 9th box you get the 10th free. Also, they give you money back. I recommend it.

I found that my daughter poops out of huggies but not pampers. We also tried playskool ones we bought at CVS. They worked well and store brand from weis works well. We also had to make sure we were getting the right size. That's why we dried playskool.

Go to diapers.com They have every brand you can think of, plus they deliver for free with an order over $50. I'm a little partial to Nature Baby. Eco-Friendly and doesn't leak, my best friend uses them with her son, and LOVES them.

we buy them by the case from amazon we save a bunch of money that way and don't pay for shipping and you have about a months worth at a time so no running to the store

You don't necessarily use more diapers when you buy the cheaper ones. I actually use less of the Parent's Choice than I did on Pampers.

hey, i dont know what brands you guys have there, except for pampers.

i use pampers active baby for my son, i know its expensive its like R210 for 54 diapers, but its worth it. when you use cheaper ones you buy more, because they leak etc. i have learned that pamper fills up alot. my son has a pampers on from after bath time at about 18:00pm and i only change him the next morning. Pampers is the better one i think, i have also tried huggies gold, dont know if you have it, its works well too. wipes that are great are the pigeon brand! i'd say stick to pampers, they are expensive but work better!

I used the Pampers that I was given at my baby shower at first. When those ran out, I tried several different ones. Someone gave us a box of Maker's Mark, don't even bother, he peed through at least one a day. Although some people don't think the off brands won't work, the Parent's Choice one s from Wal-Mart are as good if not better than the Pampers, and they are so much easier on the wallet. You get 104 for about $13 here. Also, their wipes are about $7 for 480. Only complaint I have on the wipes is that they don't pull the next up, so you have to open the entire lid of your wipes container, but it's totally worth it, and they are hypoallergenic.

My son leaked through all the diapers besides Huggies...We tried to use the Walmart brand but after 2 hours he leaked through..I went through three times as many diapers..It was just as expensive as if I were buying Huggies because he went through them so fast...

[deleted account]

I used Pampers with my first daughter, I loved the cruisers and easy ups and never had any problems with her. My second daughter who is now 5 months old I use mostly Luvs and I love them...not one leak yet :) I would have tried them earlier but didn't sell them where I lived in Canada.

I find that only Huggies work for us. I buy them at costco and save a ton. I also love costco's brand of wipes they are super cheap and so soft. I find Huggies were the only ones that didn't leak for us. A trick for nightime that I read about is to put baby in a size larger and we never leak at night.

I think it depends on the child. I've noticed that also as my daughter grows, she fits in different diapers differently. For example, I thought that Pampers Swaddlers were so much better than Pampers Baby Dry, but then it came a time when the Baby Drys were so much better, since her body changed.

also forgot to mention sign up for their rewards program you get points in every pack you buy, that is that green and white, or all white sticker with a code on it.
they currently are running a gift card thing, so maybe you could get dinner for you and your significant other on pampers, that would be a great money saver

pampers are the only ones i can use so i can not say as to that, but sign up for their mailings on their website and have all your family too so you can get as many coupons as possible, also buy only the cases as they are cheaper, and watch for them to go on sale

White Cloud and Luvs are great. I only have a girl, but that's the brand the boys I know use. I recently had to switch to Huggies because my daughter has inherited my skin, it seems. Luvs breaks her out. =( Huggies can be filled up a lot, though. I change her way less than I used to, but the gell comes out sometimes. I don't like that too much.

Ya you have to remember all babies are different we use parent's choice and so does my sister and my brother in law but my cousin could not use parent's choice or any store brand with her daughter because she pee'd very heavy she had to use Huggies (only!) With the store brand or even other name brands she was buying more so also paying more.

My children all used (and use) parent's choice my baby is in size 3 now and we buy the value pk. has give or take 180 diapers costs $13.00 and that lasts us a month so we pay less than $200 on diapers a year we were paying at least double that when our first daugther was born because we bought a more expensive brand - We also buy parent's choice wipes value pk. has i think 8 refill pks. we pay less than $9.00 and they last 4 to 5 months for us.. (and I use wipes for everything - including whiping down dirty children after an afternoon at the park! LOL)

No one diaper is the same for every baby and you'll have to do the math and try different brands and see for yourself what works best for you and your baby.



BTW Kirkland diapers are a really good brand for less and they also have the cut out cord slot! because I like that too!

I have tried all brands and do not recommend store brand. You think you are saving money but you will use twice as many diapers. My suggestion, buy them at costco. A membership is only 50bucks a year and will pay for itself with the money you will save with diapers. Plus they have wipes too.

I have a girl and love pampers so far, I have not tried huggies since she left new born size (i liked the cord being cut out!) We buy our diapers at Sams or on Diapers.com. I tried Luvs and she kept pooping out of them, go figure!

with my son I'm sorry to say Pampers is the only thing that worked. If you have a Kroger they usually have really good sales and give you in-store coupons. Also at Toys R Us if you get the free card every 9 boxes of diapers you buy you get the 10th free.

I haven't had much luck with name brand diapers I have a 12 month old son I was using White Cloud (from wal-mart) NEVER leaked. now that they don't carry it where I live ( Wisconsin) I went to Parents choice. As long as you change your son every 3-4 hours you'll be ok. Even at night time !!!! you get 100 diapers for 12$$

With my son I tried everything and the only thing he wouldn't leak through was Huggies Supreme. With my daughter I'm able to use Luvs.
