So, this will be a boring post to most people probably, but I would like to take a minute and talk about diapers. Josh and I were given a lot of diapers at baby showers, and Josh hoarded up on diapers before the girls arrived. We have tried almost all diaper brands and off brands to find what works best for our mobile skinny girls. *My affiliate links are used in this post.*
Huggies Snug and Dry Diapers:
Pros: Cheaper, coupons widely available, rewards program
Cons: Leaks, bulky, wrong fit on my girls
Pampers Swaddlers Diapers:
Pros: Thin, soft, smell good, great fit, Dry Max, rewards program
Cons: More expensive and coupons not as good or as available. Lisa gets a rash.
Kirkland Signature Supreme Baby Diapers:
Pros: Large box, decent price. Fit well, cute design. Soft.
Cons: Costco membership needed, no coupons.
Parent’s Choice (Wal-mart):
Pros: Cheap, fit well
Cons: Don’t breath well, not soft
Up and Up (Target Brand) Diapers:
Pros: Best priced diapers, cute dot-design
Cons: Hard, bulky, plastic-like, don’t breath, see design through clothes.
Babies R Us Brand Diapers:
Pros: Don’t leak, cheap, sales
Cons: Stiff and a little bulky
Luvs Ultra Leakguards Diapers:
Pros: Cheaper, money-back guarantee, smell good
Cons: I don’t know yet!
I am a member of both Pampers and Huggies Reward Programs, and I recently won a $10 Visa Prepaid Card from Huggies’ Enjoy the Ride Program! It was one of their Instant Win Games, and I won! I just received it in the mail. However, I am generally very unimpressed with the Huggies’ Reward Program. There are very few items in the rewards catalog, and everything else is either instant win or sweepstakes. Not really worth earning the points for the most part, especially considering one package of diaper is not worth a lot of points, and their wipes worth even less. I really don’t like their wipes: often too dry and I don’t like that they are perforated together.
The Pampers “Gifts to Grow” program is a much better program. There’s a considerable reward catalog, with things you actually want, along with sweepstakes and instant win games. Plus, Pampers gives you more points for one package of diapers or wipes, meaning you earn more points faster. Their wipes are good, though too expensive. However, both of these rewards programs are on their last year of their programs, and will end December 31, 2011.
So, I think we’re going to become a Luvs family, though I love Pampers. Cost and comfort and fit are all there with the Luvs, and my sensitive skinned Lisa won’t get diaper rash.
What have you found to be the best diapers for you kids and why?
