Pampers or Huggies

Christina - posted on 05/06/2010 ( 16 moms have responded )




I have been switching back and forth between Huggies and Pampers but still have not descided on what is the best. What do you think? I am also interested in hearing about any other brands that work especially, with leaks : )

I like the pampers swaddlers, and the huggies pure and natural. I've also used 7th generation when they are the same price as the name brands or I have a coupon...they are pretty great too. I used G diapers with my son (they are a hybrid diaper) I liked them as well, and wish I could use something like that with my daughter, but they are very expensive and, like many folks these days, we are facing a budget crunch...

Soo... I have been using Huggies Little Movers for almost a week and not one incedent of poop out the back!! I'm so happy right now : ) Before the switch I had a day with 3 outfit changes and the next with 4 - all poopie messes.

We only used Huggies forever, Until I found that the Target brand of diapers is just the same for 1/2 the cost! I would give them a try we used those for the last year and a half before my daughter was potty trained!

I like son has never had a diaper rash with them and they keep him dry...and they are the cheapest most of the time.

I've used pampers for all four of mine, I never liked huggies - they always leaked and the babies never felt as dry!

I find that they are on sale opposite weeks of each other at Walgreens. Plus, you can usually get a good coupon online or in the Sunday circulars for both brands. So I just buy what's on sale and use a coupon and get diapers for pretty cheap. My record so far has been $2.85 for a jumbo pack of Huggies. I don't think either is better than the other. If you haven't discovered what you like best, then chances are both brands are good for you kid too.

Ha ha, I was just coming on this forum to ask the exact same question!!

I like Huggies the best, I also don't mind snugglers (not sure if they sell them anywhere else but Australia.)

Hey Christina.

I find that huggies are the best nappy. I have tried to same different nappy brands and huggies beats them all! I havent had a single problem with them and they are a nice snug fit around the waist and legs.
Im currently trying out treasures giggles and they are okay, still not as snug though

Neither.....although they're both good brands I couldn't stand the smell of Pampers with pee in them, and Huggies fit Roxanne too big so major leakage problems.....poop constantly up the back....gross!! Someone recommended I try the Kirkland Signature brand from Costco and we absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them and they're cheaper as well! Super heavy duty, cute and inexpensive.....can't go wrong!

I use Huggies Little Movers for day and Huggies Pull-ups for nighttime. I used to use the Huggies Overnights, but my son started leaking out of those after the month or so. Not any problems with the others though. I LOVE the Little Movers.

We tried Pampers when my son was born b/c we were given umpteen zillion packs of them.. They leaked all the time for him. And then when my son was almost a year old b/c all the Huggies were gone in HI (not the whole state, but we had gone to like 3 or 4 different stores and just sucked it up and bought the Pampers Cruisers). I hated the Cruisers. The sides stretched so much that the diaper was starting to turn around instead of staying put.

We tried the Exchange brand (military Shoppette and BX/PX brand) and they were horrible. They leaked all the time.

Thanks! It is good to know that the store brands are good. I have been afread to try anything else. My daughter gets poop out the back of her diaper almost everyday : ( She has ruined so many cute outfits. Does anyone else have this problem?

I buy whichever are on sale or cheapest, I'm not loyal to either but the store brands are just as good, if not better sometimes!

Kristin - posted on 05/06/2010




Either or all of them on the market seem pretty okay. I really only had issues with leakage when they were getting to the upper end of the weight limits or if I flaked and hadn't changed them lately. Stupid disposables are almost too absorbant until all of a sudden they aren't at all. My go to for day is Luv or generic, and I really like the Huggies Overnights for, well, overnight. I do get Huggies or Pampers if there is a good sale and I've got a coupon though.

Most of the time when we are home, it's cloth. hope this helps.
