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!

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.
