    @discokitty:  LOL WTF

    But that ruffle butt thing is CUUUUUUUUUUTE. I always squee when I see ruffle butt pants and stuff at Target. But $130? For a diaper cover? Like, these people realize you can get the same damn thing that slips on for like $4 at Target, right?

    @mepayne:  I work at a daycare, too!

    I think Pampers are a little softer, but AMEN to name brand wipes!

    I have a family that uses 89 cent wipes (I work at a $550/WEEK infant care program in Boston). They smell SO BAD! They’re so heavily perfumed that the other kids’ diapers smell like them! And their kid is CONSTANTLY covered with a diaper rash!

    I’ve had two kids and I always use the Walmart brand. I’ve never had an issue and they are cheap. They don’t make a newborn size so I used huggies.

    @gpsp2B:  It’s not that one’s baby is necessarily going to be sitting in a diaper for a long length of time when the parents are up and about; it’s more for when the baby is sleeping that “powerhouse” diapers come in handy.

    Pampers swaddlers for NB-2 and Pampers baby dry for size 3 (that’s DS’ current size).

    I read your post title with interest…

    And came in here to see if the Poll would be reflective of the move in the last decade(s) to cloth…

    Lol, it wasn’t… which is ok.

    But rather it was specifically aimed at those who use disposibles.

    I still read it with interest.

    So it turns out as an Oldtimer (my kids are all adults now)

    I may actually have some info that I can share just the same.

    Diaper Brands and Sizes can be quite different… and as somone else mentioned you may see better results with one brand over another if you have a Baby Boy or a Baby Girl (due to anatomy reasons, and which diapers work better for your child)

    So it makes sense to buy more than one brand and try them out

    BUT your post also talked about buying 1-2-3 sizes, and some Newborn Packs.

    Based on my experience… you might want to buy some ahead of time for sure… but hold off on going crazy


    Until the Baby actually gets here, you won’t know EXACTLY what size to buy (same problem Moms have with baby clothes… too much in one size, not enough in another)


    Huggies run…

    Newborn = up to 10 Lbs

    Size 1 = up to 14 Lbs

    Size 2 = 12 to 18 Lbs

    Size 3 = 16 to 28 Lbs

    So altho your Baby might not be long in the Newborn Size (say you have a 9 Lb baby)… he might be quite awhile in a Size 1 Diaper (up ot 14 Lbs)… and even tho the Size 2 overlaps in sizing (12 to 18 Lbs), it is also made for a bigger baby so won’t fit a smaller baby nearly as snuggly (gaps at the leg openings = accidents)

    On the otherhand, you could have a 7 Lb baby, and they would spend a lot of time wearing the Newborn Size… and the Size 1 and Size 2 Diapers altho not going to waste won’t be useful for months (money invested… on something for later… when what you truly need is something else NOW)

    All stuff to take into consideration… as outfitting a baby and maintaining them in the items they require can be quite expensive.  Diapers especially.

    (Way back when, when I had my babies, once I determined WHICH brand of Diaper I & Baby Preferred I’d watch for coupons and sales, and try to get the best bang for my buck in regards to buying the larger packages)

    Anyhow, I hope I’ve explained this clearly enough…

    Just saying that diapers are like so many other things when it comes to babies, as much as you want to plan ahead, sometimes it isn’t always a good idea to go too hog wild in that… because babies are extremely individualistic, and things can change for even the best laid plans.

    (Including baby to baby… as any Mother who’s had more than one can also tell you)

    Hope this helps (some)…

    … and I’d love to read feedback from recent Moms to see if their experiences are similar today to the ones I had sooo long ago in regards to diaper sizes / fit / and baby growth.

    We plan to switch to cloth when DD is big enough, but for now we use Pampers Swaddlers and we’ve been happy with them. We tried Huggies but didn’t like them as much.

    You should buy a few before, but not a ton.. I started with huggies for my first kid, and she peed through them all the time. So, we switched to Pampers and they were wonderful. At night she used Huggies overnights. Well, fast forward to 5 years later, had my son. We did the same with him. Well, pampers leaked with him big time. We tried Huggies overnights once he reached the starting size, those leaked bad too. We switched to Huggies snug-n-dry. Those were wonderful. They last through 13 hour nights and everything! So, in my opinion, it can vary by child. Honestly.. Especially girls and boys.


    Good luck!

    I voted pampers.  They’re my favorite.  But the Luvs work just as well and are so much cheaper.  The material of the pampers feels a little nicer, though.

    I loved pampers swaddlers when she was an infant. But once dd got bigger & mobile huggies were my preference.

    @gpsp2B:  The only kind I really didn’t like for any of the 3 girls was Luvs. They leaked. Target was good until one of the twins developed a sensitivity to them and got rashes After only wearing one for a short period of time. Pampers has a smell which was pleasent but made me sneeze. 

    Huggies wipes were my fav or Sams Club brand.
