When I was pregnant I did a ton of research and read lots of mommy blogs and reviews about diapers. After all this reading I knew that I was 100% going to use Pamper’s Swaddlers, but consider other options when my daughter outgrew Swaddlers because I wanted to avoid Pamper’s Dry Max product.
When G was born we used Pamper’s Swaddlers in the Newborn size for about a month and we LOVED them! I knew my choice had been correct! Then came the time to switch to size 1s and boy were we in trouble! The Pampers Swaddlers size 1s were huge on G! You could see straight through the leg holes! Its almost like they were 1 1/2s…lol. Pampers just weren’t going to work for us anymore.
We used Huggies Little Snugglers for awhile and during the time we were using them, they had a product change. I noticed the inside of the newer huggies seemed kind of quilted. I like the newer version of the Huggies much better than the old ones.
(I meant to take a picture comparing diaper sizes by brand, but in the craziness that is new motherhood, I never made the time. I look a bit around the web and couldn’t really find a picture that really showed the size differences in the diaper brands.)
At one point I had Pamper’s Swaddlers, Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive, Up and Up (Target), Huggies Little Snugglers, and Honest Company diapers in Size one. This would have made a great photo, so I am sorry I didnt take the time to make one.
Since I dont have a photo, I will do my best with a description.
Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive are slightly larger than regular Pamper’s Swaddlers. Up and Up, Huggies, and Honest Company are similar in size, but are different in shape. The Up and Up brand are more rounded in the bottom area, almost U shapped, while Huggies and Honest Company diapers are more rectangular. Up and Up are fluffier feeling, Huggies are the softest, and Honest Company seem kind of stiff.
(**Oh look I did find a picture. This picture is from the miny-moe.com website. I am not endorsing the site, because I have never used them, but I want to give them credit for the picture.)

Choosing a new diaper:
- If you subtract the cost of the wipes $4.99 each (same price as target) then you are looking at a base price of $59.99 which is 25 cents per diaper.
