Pros: Very Few Leaks, Timeless Disney Characters On Diapers, Holds Wetness Away From Baby Very Well
Cons: Still Leak Sometimes With Larger Messes
When my wife and I had our first child, we were determined to be smart parents. Why spend $22 for a box of Huggies when we can buy generic for $16 a box? We saved a lot of money on generic disposable diapers, but at what cost? When we were using the generic, I honestly though messes coming out of diapers was part of raising a child, I thought that if it happened with the cheap diapers it would happen with the more expensive ones too. Every day I was scrubbing another outfit to get the mess off. Sometimes just the wet would soak through, sometimes "stuff" would come out the edges... it was a nightmare, but we were saving some money.
With our second child we received a bag of Huggies as a baby present, great I thought, I can finally see if these hold out better for the extra money. I was amazed!
You could really tell the difference between the generic and the Huggies. The elastic around the leg was better fitted to keep things in, and the waist went a little higher. They were more absorbent than the generic, which meant fewer cases of diaper rash, which meant a happier, quieter baby, everybody wins.
Needless to say, we became a Huggies family immediately, and have never regretted it. We spend a few more dollars per box, but we find we use fewer diapers because they hold out so much better, so that helps close the cost gap.
We have conducted tests to see if more expensive brands performed better still, the results indicate a performance plateau. They don't get much better as they get more expensive past Huggies.
Overall I give Huggies a big thumbs up. They hold in what needs to be held in, and protect my babies skin better than lower cost diapers, what more could I ask? If your a parent who has been going the generic route, think about trying Huggies, you'll be glad you did.
