As a mom of three girls, I’ve had some diaper experiences. In fact, from the first daughter to the last (who is 11 months old today), I’ve used 7 different diapers.

Here’s the good, bad + the ugly on all 7 of them.

Pampers

The hospital where I gave birth to my first daughter used Pampers. We also attended Baby Bootcamp + a Baby Bundles class (both taught by nurses) + both classes suggested Pampers so we went with it.

We used Pampers in the hospital + when we first brought her home. We had several leaks + blowouts. Especially when she started sleeping through the night at about five months, Pampers just couldn’t hold all that pee overnight. It caused wet sheets + a wet, unhappy baby (sometimes at 3 am) + two unhappy parents fumbling with sheets + baby PJs in the middle of the night.

Then, there were the blowouts. My daughter had quite a few incidents where she explosively blew poop out of her diaper–a few times without catching any in the diaper at all but all over me. I still don’t know how she managed to do that.

I also found Pampers to be on the more expensive side than the other brands on the market. If I’m going to pay more, I certainly don’t want all of the incidents + wind up wearing poop.

Talking with a pediatrician (who is also a mom) in later years, she agreed with my assessment, also mentioning she thought Pampers had a chemical smell to them that she didn’t like.

Huggies

From Pampers, we switched to Huggies Snug ‘N Dry. I never had any major problems with Huggies. There was no chemical smell.

We had a leak or blowout here + there but it was usually due to user error–me or my husband not putting the diaper on 100% right.

Huggies seemed to hold a lot more pee + poop than Pampers did. We had a few accidents, but again, it was far + few between.

Overall, we were extremely happy with Huggies + used them until my first daughter was out of diapers. We also used them for my second + third daughters until we switched to Honest for my third.

Luvs

I gave Luvs a try once or twice. They are by far one of the least expensive diapers on the market.

I didn’t love them but I didn’t hate them either. They are really thin + lightweight so I wouldn’t let them go too long without a changing. Overnights were pretty much out of the question. They weren’t heavy enough to hold a large amount of pee.

Mom to Mom

Mom to Mom is the Safeway grocery store brand of diapers. I found it is at a similar price point to Luvs but a step or two above as far as thickness + quality.

I would buy + use this brand if I ran out of diapers in between Amazon subscription shipments of Huggies.

I never had any leaks or problems with them but I did only use them here + there + not really on a regular basis.

Side note: I used this brand of pull-ups for my two older girls–again, when there was a shortage in between shipments. No complaints with the pull-ups either.

Target Brand

I had a similar experience with the Target brand diapers.

I would buy + use this brand if I ran out of diapers in between Amazon subscription shipments.

I never had any leaks or problems with them but I did only use them here + there + not really on a regular basis.

Side note: I also used this brand of pull-ups for my two older girls–again, when there was a shortage in between shipments. No complaints with the pull-ups either.

Honest

Honest diapers + wipes are by far my favorite brand. There are no harmful or questionable chemicals in the making of the products.

The quality is above all of the other brands that I have used. The diapers are thick + soft. The baby can sleep for 10+ hours + the diapers do not leak. The wipes are sturdy but soft + do not have a funny smell or leave any kind of film after using the wipes (They recently updated the wipes so they are 99% water now).

I subscribe to the bundle so the pricing is comparable to Huggies. The bundle includes 7 packages of diapers + 4 packages of wipes + they show up at my door on a schedule that I set.

Aldi Brand

I adore Aldi so I thought I would give their diapers + wipes a try. The pricing is about half the cost of the Honest brand diapers + wipes.

Sorry, Aldi, but your diapers + wipes just don’t hold up to the test. We had several leaks during the day + never even used them at night because we knew there’d definitely be a problem.

They are extremely thin + lightweight so just don’t seem nearly as durable as the Honest brand.

I am waiting on my shipment of Honest diapers + wipes today but am running short on diapers so I almost added Aldi diapers to my Instacart–just as a fill-in until my subscription arrives.

Phew. My Honest box is out for delivery so I don’t have to 🙂
