Right now I'm using Huggies because someone gave them to me as a gift...and they sort of work...sometimes...They definitely leak more often and they don't fit as good. My daughter is well over seven pounds and the preemie diapers are too big on her. The pack says they're for up to six pounds. I definitely prefer Pampers. But, I ABSOLUTELY HATE COMPLIMENTS DIAPERS!!! My daughter despises them with a passion!

i absolutely HATE huggies & luvs.

we didn't put my son in anything other than Pamper Swaddlers for P-S, newborn, 1, 1-2 & 2's.

when he was ready to move into size 3's we discovered diapers that Fisher Price makes and they are freegin awesome!!!!

my son's "theme" is Precious Planet... and the fisher price diapers have his jungle animals on them SO CUTE but not why we switched lol. they have "happy days & happy night" diapers. so you use the happy days during the day and then right before you put your baby to bed put a night time diaper on them. we have NEVER had a leak with these diapers, nor any diaper rash, etc. and they even have a "size right" strip on the front so you can tell when your baby is ready for the next size :)

Huggies always leaked on me...and my daugher ended up being allergic to them (it took forever to figure this out, even the pediatrician thought it was a bad diaper rash that we just couldn't get to go away. Felt really stupid after I figured it out.) We use pampers now, but I hate how saggy they can be, even when they are clean and dry.

I use cloth! Love them! I have been using the Happy Heinys One Size Snap diapers. They are so much cheaper than using disposables, and my daughter loves them! They arent gross at all, you dont even have to touch the part the pee on when you wash them! I would highly recommend going cloth!

I used Huggies with my daughter a few times because I had gotten them at my baby shower and they gave her a horrible rash I took her to the dr and she was allergic to something they used in the diaper so I use Pampers. I like Pampers better anyways though I loved the Pampers Swaddlers when she was little and now the cruisers they are just softer and more flexible i think

I use huggies and pampers and they both work for my daughter with no leaks. Next child though, I won't be using diapers at all. I will be using Natural Infant Hygiene (no diapers from the beginning) next time around.

i love pampers diapers, they have the least leaks. I have tried them all, and with a boy, its hard for any diaper not to have leaks. But huggies have leaks the worst. Hate them!

[deleted account]

ive tried both and i dont like neither one of them...i would perfer parents better. They are more thicker and my daughter has a little belly. Her Huggies diapers never wonts to stay on versus when i use Parent's Choice and they are cheaper too!!

I love Huggies! Pampers just couldn't hold up to the messes my son was making in them. Plus they now have that Max Dry or Dry Max stuff that's giving babies rashes and HUGE blisters. What makes me the most angry about the rashes and blisters is that Pampers pretty much came out and said "we know all of your children are getting bad rashes and big blisters but we tested these on thousands of babies so you're all full of shit" (more or less in a nutshell). I will NEVER use Pampers because that is how they are choosing to conduct themselves and their business.

you also have to keep in mind that every baby is different. my daughter can go through diff brand of diapers and not have a reaction, but its not always the same for everyone, id try the cheaper brands first, and if those dont work out for the baby than find a brand that does and stick w that, pamper luvs and huggies are all 3 good brands but you can also find good cheap ones i.e parents choice or the meijer brand

I have never seen pampers in nz...i use huggies but only as a standby if we are out of cloth. (he seems to have reactions to the cheaper brands) and use sensitive wipes if we are not a home and flannels at home.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Huggies little snugglers/little movers.They are absolutly wonderful, I have never had a problem with leaky diapers. I have tried many kinds, and nothing comes close. I also love huggies wipes. They are the best, and I never have a problem getting them out of the container. Pampers sag really bad and get squishy very fast, and i find that their wipes are useless.

I personally LOVE both huggies and pampers we have a 2.5yr old that wears pampers and has since she was a newborn huggies never worked for her.... but we have a 13 month old that has only been a huggie baby pampers always leak for her it may be because she has such a tiny bum lol but they have never worked well so i have to buy both

I like pampers cruisers for my toddler and parents choice wipes. They prevent him from getting rashes cause they keep him really dry and don't rub him while he runs around. So far so good. i'm hoping to potty train him soon and not have to use any!

I loved Pampers but I don't like how once he pees it smells so strongly after one little pee. I just started trying Luvs and I was iffy at first but I really like them =) Still a Paper lover though, soon to be a Luv lover haha! The main reason I don't like Huggies is because I went on Vaca with the hubby and we ran out of diapers so we went to buy some and all the had were Huggies or generic convenience store brand so we bought the Huggies on the 30 minute drive home from the last diaper change he peed straight through it >=(

I like both personally. The Pampers Swaddlers are decent. The Huggies are better for boys since they have the elastic around the top. They keep in the wetness and the poop more. The Pampers he actually leaked from a few times.

I asked a friend this question when I was pregnant and she said Pampers were better so I've never used Huggies! Don't like Pampers wipes though. I find they're too slippery and don't grip. Huggies wipes are great, though they do have a hard time coming apart. What I do when I'm expecting to need a few wipes is take them out and seperate them before taking the diaper off. It makes life so much easier, and they can handle the mess!

How is it using cloth diapers. I hate the fact that diapers are such a burden on the enviroment but no one ever told me how to use cloth ones.

Despise Huggies... My cousin loved them for her baby boy but I despised them for my baby girl. As for wipes, I use the Member's Mark from Sam's Club. I use 3 wipes when she poops regardless of brand, so i might as well buy the most economical one. They're actually pretty soft and they get the job done.

I like Pampers better! They hold more than Huggies do. When i tried the Huggies on my son tehy leaked every time he peed. I hate Pampers wipes, but I love Huggies wipes. Pampers wipes arent as thick as Huggies and they work better for when he poops.

I like pampers. They hold more. The only part I don't like is that they sag. But it doesn't bother my daughter so it's not that bad!

I know how you feel. The wipes never come out of the container...they come out like 4 wipes at a time and your trying to hold there legs so the don't stick there foot in there poop and trying to pull out a wipe. Ugh. And huggies leak all the time. Pampers rock!

Neither! I use cloth diapers and save about 60-75 dollars a month in wipes and diapers as well as help out the environment by reusing instead of disposing. I've been doing it for 4 years and 3 kids (soon to be 4 kids). Give it a try!
