    We use cloth (BumGenius), but when we travel we use Huggies.

    We’ve used Pampers before too, but I found that the weights listed on the packages were more accurate with Huggies than Pampers. (For example, when Pampers NB size were too small, Huggies NB size still fit.)

    I have a boy. I’ve heard Huggies are better for boys and Pampers better for girls; I have no idea if that’s true or not though.

    @abbyful:  I found that Pampers was better than Huggies and I have little boy. Huggies for me tend to leak.

    I think this truly varies baby by baby. One friend swears by huggies and another loves the target store brand. you won’t know til baby is here 🙂

    I think it actually depends on your baby. Which I know doesn’t help you at all. Some work good for girls, while others work better for boys. Looking at what

    @abbyful:  and  @Sassygrn: have said, it varies from baby to baby. I believe pampers worked good for us in the beginning but then we switched to the wal-mart brand and then we swithced to Huggies in the end. Alos tried a bunch of other brands in between as well.

    @Izzy81:  Yep I agree, we tried quite a few diapers and for us it seems like Pampers work the best. Though we do the Huggie over nights since little boy goes a lot and have heard the Pamper overnights tend to explode and burn little bums.

    @cbee:  Another option is the Honest Diaper company. They don’t fit my guy right, but they will send you a 10-diaper trial pack. 

    We stocked up on diapers from a variety of sources–pampers, costco diapers, target, and the above-mentioned Honest diapers. We’ve had success with pampers and costco diapers. We have a package of Huggies to try when he gets to size 2. i think it definitely depends on the baby.

    @Sassygrn:  Now that I think about it we had different diapers for daytime and night time use as well, Can’t remember the brands but it certainly was trial and error.

     

    OP another thing is that not all babies fit the same diaper size for very long. In our case DS was in size 5 and 6 very early on as he grew very quickly. So I would not stock pile too many in the same size.

    OP I agree with Izzy81 they tend to out grow diapers so fast though size 3 and size 4 diapers have a good weight range and also depends on how fast your little one grows. We have been in size 3 diapers for the longest amount of time since little boy was born.  He was a premie so his weight he is smaller than babies his own age (he is 16 months now).  I also like for Pampers their Cruizers better than their Baby Dry ones. 

    I do know we are trying out a small pack of Target brand right now to see if they hold up (since they run cheaper for price wise).  We usually buy the big economy packs and for Pampers you are looking at anywhere from 35 to 45 dollars a box (about 100 some to 200 some diapers depending on kind and size for Pampers). 

    We tried the cloth diaper route and I really didn’t like and didn’t work out for us.

    I did a science fair project in school about this. It was about absorbency. Grant it, that was several years ago but the best brand was actually Luvs!

    @cbee:  Check out The Honest Company (Jessica Alba is one of the founders)! They’re free of all of these toxic chemicals and are eco-friendly. They’re also not tested on animals.

    We’re currently TTC so I can’t say first-hand that they’re awesome, but one of our friend’s SIL just switched to this and LOVES them. They have super cute prints and deliver to your house. According to her SIL, it’s just a little more expensive than shopping in bulk at Costco or Amazon. She has one child.

    We used Pampers all the way to size 5 then went with parents choice in size 5 and 6 for about 3 months then she was potty trained.
