I bought the walmart's brand of diapers once and my little guy's poo would leak out every time and so we have stuck with Pampers. My father -in-law can get them from a direct connection for a great deal but, it will only last through size 2 and then we are on our own for finding good deals on the Pampers. If anyone knows where I can get discounts on diapers I would love to know. :)

I LOVE pampers swaddlers but he just outgrew them. I wish they made them in bigger sizes. I tried the organice huggies ones but they leaked and a friend of mine who uses luvs had me try them and he leaked out every single night. I just switched him to size 3's and bought the target brand cause I hear they were good and so far I havent had a leak but they must run a little bigger than pampers cause they are too big!

I use Huggies for my daughter. I have tried pampers and LUVS also, but Pampers don't soak up as much, so I don't like them for night and Luvs run way to small and you dont get as many in the bigger pack so I am sticking with Huggies.

I find Huggies is my brand (with all 3 of my kids), since they were all born just over 5 pounds and stayed on the tiny side (my 5 month old is probably 13-15 lbs. now).Pampers brand is just a little too big for him, but great for bigger babies,and my sister-in-law has tried cheaper diapers and found her son was always soaking through them.

We use normal cloth squares , that i fold and then we put a cover over, during the day, but now she is sleeping for longer at night I tend to put her in disposables for then. I have tried all the different types on the market, I have two kids, boy and girl, and have foound that huggies, aldi, and pampers are great but my favourite is babylove and she loves looking at the wiggles pictures whilst i change her.

Ive tried EVERY kind of disposable diaper and none of them work. My son still leaks at night and has to have a bath in the morning. We just use Huggies because that's what we got at the baby shower. 6 months old and Ive still never had to buy anything for him but formula a few times. lol. Thank god for baby showers

I have tried huggies, parents choice, pampers, and luvs. I didn't like how huggies were made. Parents choice were good but to me seemed to have bad smell when wet. Pampers were ok but at the time i used them my baby slept on her stomach and leaked during the night. I prefer the Luvs myself. They seem thin but they hold well for my daughter and she wears size 3.

We uses pampers swaddlers until I switched him to the size 3 diapers and Huggies seemed to work alot better with him starting to crawl around and roll all over the place! (He can wear a size 2 but It leaves marks on his chunky little legs) :)

Also cloth! I have mostly Bum Genius 3.0's, one size blueberry pocket, and tomorrow I'm getting my first flip! It is so nice to ENJOY diapering. Despite the extra work, it is my favourite laundry to do and I love stuffing all of them and having all the pretty colours. I certainly don't miss all of the garbage that the disposables made, or the stink! We use pampers baby dry when she has a rash and needs to be loaded up with diaper cream. Or any other time when cloth isn't a good idea. I can't wait to use the flip disposable inserts when we travel 17 hours to let Charlotte meet all of Daddy's family!

CLOTH!! They're better than you think! Fuzzi Bunz are what we use. But Happy Hieney's and Good Mama's are great too!

I used nothing but pampers for the first 5 months (I hate huggies) but I just switched to Luvs because they are just the same to me as pampers but less expensive.

I got both Pampers Swaddlers and Huggies as gifts from various people & I have switched back and forth between the two. I think my favorite is the Pampers Swaddlers...they just seem softer to me. But, Huggies are okay too. My son just recently started getting a little bit of a rash, but we've been putting Desitin on it and it's not all that bad anymore.

I use BabyLove and Aldi brand. My son's bum is a little big for Huggies so we needed to find a wider diaper.

I also use cloth, BumGenius 3.0's for home, and Pampers babydry when we're away. Tried Luvs and they were HORRIBLE! Didn't fit well, leaked, and gave DS a bad rash. Will never use them again!

I have tried Huggies, Pampers (I forget which type-sensitive or soemthing like that), Luvs, Parent's Choice and Up and Up. When my son was a newborn, he leaked through everything when he was laying down. However, he has stopped doing that, and I find the Target brand (UP and Up) and the WalMart brand (Parent's Choice) to work wonderfully and at a fraction of the cost of the name brand diapers. I had the worst time with Pampers. I have even tried the Costco brand (Kirkland), and those were fine too!

We love the seventh generation diapers. I print off coupons on line and they help with the price.

We were using Huggies for a time but I noticed a lot of leaks, especially overnight. Now we use Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers 12 hour, which are nice because they hold more, and are extra long, which helps with those up-the-back leaks.

We used Swaddlers Sensitive until a few weeks ago when we bumped her up to Size 3. We then decided to experiment: Pampers Cruisers (apparently the ones with "mesh") were just fine; Pampers Baby Dry at night, then during the day when we ran out of Cruisers (also fine); Target brand Up and Up (NOT fine - I'm 99% certain these are giving her a bad diaper rash, which is such a bummer, plus she's had several blowouts in them). Last week I bought a case of Size 2-3 Swaddlers and will go back to those until we run out. After that...who knows?

We use Target brand. I use swaddlers when he was newborn for the cord thing then switched to Target brand when the cord fell off. We tried Luvs, Huggies, Wal-Mart brand and Pamers. Liked Pampers best, baby pooped through the rest. Then a friend turned me on to Target brand because they're very similar to Pampers.

We use cloth as well.

Mostly Kissaluvs fitteds and occasionally some prefolds. If we absolutely have to, meaning the little man stays at the child care center on base, we use Luvs. BUT without fail he always gets a horrid rash from them and any other disposables that we've tried

We have used the Babies R Us brand, Huggies (Little Snugglers & SnugNDry), Luvs, and Costco brand. I was a little aprehensive about the Babies R Us brand because they weren't as soft, but they actually worked really well. I have been very fortunate that my daughter can switch between any diaper brand. She is in size 2's and is 5 1/2 months.

We have tried every brand! We were using the Walmart Parent's Choice brand for a while til suddently he started peeing through about 4 diapers a day and get's soaked at night. So I guess it's back to the more expensive brands. We've used the Pampers Swaddlers and really liked those. We just starting use size 4s yesterday. He's a big boy :) Before whenever a diaper started leaking that meant we needed a bigger size.

we've also been using pampers swaddlers, they're wonderful! we tried huggies and hated them, they leak a lot! someone had given me some teddy brand diapers (the store brand at superstore/loblaws) at my baby shower....we just tried those and they're actually really good! AND they're almost half the price of pampers, so we've switched :)

i use huggies during the day because i can get them in bulk at cosco but i buy pampers baby dry for night. My daughter sleeps through the night and has on several occasions leaked through the huggies. She has never once leaked through the baby dry. I have also used luvs which were good but not for nights.
