Diaper Review

We started putting Hyrum in Luvs and they were alright - "better than store brand." But when we tried out some Pampers, they held better and we had fewer blow-outs for the same size. So we spent a few cents extra per diaper.

The next diaper brand "up" the pole was supposed to be Huggies, but we were pretty happy with Pampers. When we went to Sam's Club for the first time last December, though, they were selling Huggies for about the same price, so we thought it was time to try it out.

We are greatly disappointed. Lots of blow outs, they don't hold on right, and the other day the diaper let some escape - which he promptly decided to throw out of the crib around the room.

So looks like Pampers wins for us. And Hooray for diapers.com. I am also informed that they are marketing to mothers by donating vaccines for each diaper purchased. If only they didn't have Elmo on the diaper!

The Powers That Are Too Full Of Themselves decree that we must tell you: no, we do not have a financial interest in any of these companies.

We actually use Luvs during the day for Emma; we were never too pleased with Pampers. However, we recently had to start using the Huggies overnight diapers because Emma was waking up in the middle of the night with a completely soaked diapers. The overnight ones are the only Huggies we'll use; the others are not worth the price you pay for them, for sure!!!
