I am a mom of a 19 month old and a 6 month old. My two sons have been Huggies babies since they were born. I am always looking to save on expences such as diapers, so I always use coupons. I noticed the price difference between the Huggies and the Target brand, and was interested in trying them, however I dont want to waste the money on them if it turns out they dont work as well. I have seen the Target brand diapers up close and they seem like they were pretty good quality. I would love to hear from some moms who have tried them and whether or not they would reccommend them. Thanks in advance!

I go in between targets brand and Luvs... which ever is cheaper and more quantity at the same time. But lately Targets brand is all I go with. My daughter never really gets rashes and yes they are a decent quality. My daughter doesn't walk funny after she has it on unlike some of those other diapers. So all in all, Targets brand is just as good as huggies.

I was not a fan, my son pee's A LOT. And they just didn't hold up very well. And the tabs to put them on were weird. Idk if they have changed their style or what nots since I've used them. But just cause they didn't work for me doesn't mean they won't for you. I use pampers and or costco brand. Good luck!

We tried many store brand diapers and the only ones we found worked best was Costco's brand Kirkland.

I have tried and used Target brand diaper (and wipes) for my 2 children and they work just as good if not better than the national brand. When you have 2 children in diapers at the same time you learn to economize. But I did start out using Huggies. I was so very glad that I discovered the Target brand. Good luck to you. Hope this helps.

I switched when my son hit size 4 diapers. I kick myself for not using them from newborn on... they are great diapers for such a low price. I only buy them in the large quantity for the best savings.

I LOVE Target Brand diapers. They are just as good as the expensive brands. My son loves to drink and there pees ALOT. We had very little leaking issues with the diapers and plan on using them with baby #2.

My kids are both finally out of diapers :-), but for my second child I used nothing but Target diapers, wipes, and diaper cream. They were all excellent products! I've since moved on to Target brand toddler wipes and Target brand pull ups, both excellent too!!!!!

I used Target brand diapers, and then the training pants. I had no problems with them! I believe Target will let you return them, even an open pack, if you are not happy with them.

Not to sound like a broken record, since you already have tons of replies praising the Target brand...but they are THAT GOOD! Same quality as Huggies, but a much cheaper price. You can even go to Target's website and they usually have coupons there too! One more way that I save money is with the Target debit card. It is not a credit card, so you don't have to worry about adding another one to the list, it is actually your own debit card for your own bank, Target just gives you 5% off on EVERY transaction for using their Red one that they mail to you. That might sound a bit confusing, and I may not have described it correctly, so you should definitely go to their website to check it out and get more info if your interested.
On a side note, I also use the up and up brand formula. It is great as well! When you compare the label to the other top brand it as all the same stuff, again, just half the price. And there are always coupons for it on Target.com that you can print off. Ok- there's my two cents on it all.
Good luck figuring out what works best for your family! :)

Never used them but I used BJ's brand up until my son turned 2 and switched back to Huggies. Saved a lot of money.

My daughter used them and the grandchild got a rash from them. They are a little bit cheaper than the others, but just didn't work for her.

I used Target on my daughters and they worked great. However, not so great on my son. My kids sitter swears by Huggies for boys and they seem to be okay. I find that Pampers also works great for girls. No Parent's Choice though, they stink.

after having 5 kids and using Pampers on all of them I recently switched to Target diapers. They are comparable. I can say this... I would not spend that kind of money on Pampers again.

I hate to be the person that does this, but have you thought about cloth diapers? They will save you tons and tons of money in the long run, and really only require that you run a load of laundry every other day.

We use the target brand on our 2 and 3 year old when we are between trips to sams club, if we go to sams club we get the members mark. both work good though the up and up target brand seems to be a little more roomy then the members mark diapers

Target is something I wonder abt, we tried COSTCO brand and they seemed to do a good job and be squishy..

I would definately recommend trying them. Again, it depends on your baby's bottom shape :) Some are flat and some are round, if you know what I mean. But you can sometimes get better deals on namebrands with coupons and double coupons. I recently figured with the pampers diapers and wipe coupons and Target coupons I would save $11.50 on pampers and nothing on Target brand so it's not all about the brand, it's about the sale...

I had been using the Target diapers for my 15 month old daughter for almost a year, they work great and a definitly a great deal. However if you're really looking for a deal I recommend trying Amazon. I just got my first order but if you get Parents or Parenting magazine and maybe American Baby there is a coupon for $10 off purchases at the baby store. Plus if you do the subscribe and save you get like another 30% off. I ended up paying like $15 for a box of 176 sized 3 Pampers (regularly $40) shipped! And 8 also got threeof the big bag of huggies wipes for just over $2! Crazy cheap and worth checking out! Good luck!

I concur with these wise ladies. Target brand is tops! We are Huggies peeps, but prefer Target because of the price, and honestly, they are only just a teensy bit less cushy than Huggies. Now, the Walmart brand, Parents' Choice, didn't work for us at ALL. Too wimpy. If you're military, try the AAFES brand, too. :)

Regarding whether or not the diapers leak; I think that has more to do with the shape of the baby's butt rather than the brand. I did well with Huggies, Costco, etc. but not well with Babies-r-us or Safeway... It's all about the shape so try them all. I will have to say that sometimes namebrands are cheaper when you are using coupons and double coupons.

I've tried them and was impressed with how much better they are than some of the other store brands. Can't stand Kroger, though.

i've used target brand diapers and i absolutely HATE them. they are the worst. they leak really bad, even fall aprt easily. a few times the tabs even tore off with no reason. i have quite a few friends who say the same thing because they've made the same mistake buying those cheaply made diapers. i wouldnt waste my money if i were you.

Unfortunately, I was just dumb enough to stick with Huggies until we were at the pullup stage. Once I tried the target brand pullups though, I never went back! They are great!!

My 6 month olds been wearing target brand diapers since she was 3 weeks old. We have tried Luvs which she was allergic to and pampers which leaked like crazy. We've never had any problems and they ate sport easy to tell when she's wet. In comparing prices on them if you want to save more if its size newborn or 1 or 2 buy the bags because they cost less per diaper about 12cents compared to 15 cents per diaper if you buy the box. However when you get to size 3 and larger the club box is the way to go you save about 2 cents per diaper. seems silly but every penny helps! they are worth a try. goodluck

We loved Target diapers when my daughter was in diapers! We used them during the day and Huggies at night. At night she needed a more heavy duty one.

I have 5 kids and used target for all of them. They were.bb the only ones my kids didn't leak through. And they are very affordable.

I used them and did not like them. They leaked and didn't seem to hold much....and huggies aren't that great either...they leak as well.

I really don't like them. The stickers tend to pull off if you're not careful. I tried huggies but they're expensive and I'm not a fan of the purfume on the Pampers. I liked the costco brand. Really well made, unperfumed, and no leaks.

My sister inlaw used them for her son and hated them. She lives right next door to her and I witnessed several leaks when he was wearing them. She never bought more after her first package. My favorite are Pampers, but they are so much more expensive that unless I have a great coupon in combination with a great sale, I buy Luvs. They work well, are much less expensive than Huggies and Pampers and I almost always also have a coupon.
Good luck! At least with the 19 month old he will be out of diapers soon! That is always SO wonderful!!! =)

I LOVE Target diapers...I've tried all kinds, as I have a four year old, two year old, and 7 month old and I love anything Target. I've never had a single problem with Target diapers, they are a great deal. They also make great pull up's as well. I even use Target formula, baby snacks, and wipes. Love Target!

I have a 22 month old and 6 month old and my husband and I LOVE the target brand diapers. They're durable and can hold quite a bit without leaking or tearing. We've tried Walmart, Huggies, and Luvs and have not liked any of them,especially Luvs. Plus, they're cute:) I hope this helps. We won't put our girls in any other brand. We actually shop at two different stores for groceries so we can buy diapers at Target. I'd also recommend their formula. It's cheap and good quality. My oldest had to drink nutramigen so when my oldest went to formula we tried target's milk-based forumla for gassy babies (the purple label) and have been using it for several months now.

Up and Up wipes are great, too! Inexpensive, but not "cheap". I like the size and thickness of them.

I have used the Target brand diapers many times. They work just as well as Huggies, for me. The only diapers that don't work for me, because they leak easily and the tabs tear easily, are the Safeway Mom to Mom diapers.

I have had the best experience with Kirkland (Costco) diapers. I have tried using Huggies in the past, but they gave my daughter a rash. The Kirkland babywipes are great too.

Everyone has different experiences with different diapers, personally I had problems with Huggies, leaks and rashes. I typically used Pampers, but I've used the Target brand and thought they worked very well. They aren't as stiff as other store brand diapers!

Target brand is great and cheap. We use them and also sometimes when I get a chance to go we use the BJ's brand (Berkely and Jensen)which are very inexpensive. My son has had allergic reactions to some of the "fancy" brands but both of these seem to be sensitive enough for him and hold up pretty well.

We use cloth (bum genius and fuzzibuns) on our twin boys, but use target when we go out and overnight. We actually like them BETTER than huggies and pampers. Have had to buy them a couple times when target ones were out. definitely recommend them!
