How Do Different Brands of Baby Diapers Stack Up Against Each Other?

Disposable diapers can be a great convenience to busy parents. They allow parents to remove a soiled diaper and dispose of it in the trash. Cloth diapers require parents to rinse away the mess first, then machine-wash the diaper. There are many types of disposable diapers on the market, and selecting the right one for your baby can be confusing. With a little research, though, choosing the perfect diaper for your baby is easy.

Pampers Baby Dry

Pampers Baby Dry diapers are trusted by many parents. They feature three layers of high-absorbency materials that prevents leaks, even overnight. Pampers Baby Dry diapers have stretchy sides and Velcro tabs that allow for a comfortable fit. These diapers have a fun Sesame Street design and come in sizes one through six. They have a retail price ranging from $17.99 to $40.99, depending on the quantity you select.

In my own personal experience, Pampers Baby Dry is my favorite diaper to use for infants ages 0-6 months. These diapers hold up especially well during the night time when there tends to be less changes. While Pampers is one of the most expensive diapers on the market, but they do back up their promise to keep your baby dry and contain leaks.

Huggies Snug & Dry

Huggies Snug & Dry are a good choice for many parents. The Huggies Snug and Dry diapers features a “Leak Lock System” that keeps baby skin dry and prevents diapers leaks. This diaper has a colorful Mickey Mouse design and comes in six different sizes. Huggies Snug & Dry diapers have flexible side panels and strong Velcro tabs, allowing a comfortable fit. An 84-pack of diapers can be purchased for $16.99, while a 192-count can cost $30.99.

Personally, I thought Huggies Snug & Dry diapers worked very well as I encountered very few leaks. This diaper works well for all ages, but I was especially pleased with Huggies during the age range of 6 months to 18 months when my babies were very active and on the go. The elastic sides moved well with both of my children and provided a comfortable fit.

Luvs Ultra Leakguard

Luvs Ultra Leakguard disposable diapers are popular among many parents of babies and toddlers. Luvs Ultra Leakguard diapers promise a leak-free diaper, or they refund will refund your money. Features of Luvs Ultra Leakguard diapers include flexible side panels, Velcro fasteners and a leak-guard core. Luvs have a colorful design and come in six sizes. The retail price varies depending upon the size box you purchase. A package of 50 diapers costs $9.99, while a package of 264 count costs $34.99.

Luvs Ultra Leakguard is my favorite diaper at the moment. I use Luvs Ultra Leakguard religiously for my nearly two year old son. Logan is a highly active toddler and Luvs keeps up with him while providing a secure fit and good leak control. Luvs is also one of the most reasonable diapers on the market. If you are looking to cut costs on diapers even more, a comparable diaper to Luvs Ultra Leakguard is the Target Up Brand diaper. The Target Up Brand diaper is highly effective, absorbent, and best of all, easy on the pocket book.

Earth’s Best Diapers

Earth’s Best Diapers are a viable option for the Eco-conscious parent. These diapers are biodegradable, made of recyclable materials and are chlorine-free. Other features of Earth’s Best Diapers include an ultra-absorbent core, stretchy side panel and Velcro tabs. Earth’s Best Diapers come in seven sizes and retail prices vary. A package of 40 diapers costs $10.99 while a count of 176 diapers costs $45.99.

I’ve only used Earth’s Best Diapers once. I wasn’t a huge fan of how thin the diaper felt. I was, however, pleasantly surprised when I seen how effective this brand of diapers is at controlling leaks. Earth’s Best Diapers cost a bit more than most other diapers because they are made out of biodegradable materials, but for the Eco-conscious parent, a few bucks here and there is a small price to pay to ensure the health of the earth.
