Pros:Cheaper, removable tapes (sometimes)
Cons:Leakage factor, removable tapes (sometimes)
The Bottom Line: I would recommend these to someone who has a newborn but not to anyone who has an older infant.
I, like most others, look for a bargain and thought that all diapers would basically be the same. I bought the name brands such as Huggies and Pampers at first and subsequently, whatever was on sale. Since most of the diapers I already tried appeared to be just like the others, I thought the generic versions would follow suit. I bought Drypers due to the price. They are very inexpensive and the size range are typical of the name brands. They have the reattachable tapes although they are tough at times to remove and sometimes will not seal back up pending on where it was stuck originally on the diaper. The diapers do not hold a lot of liquid and don't seem to go up high enough in the back. I suffered through many leakages in which I had to change my daughter's clothes just from one single incidence of urination. There were many times in which I had additional messes to clean up due to a bowel movement.
The diapers are nearly as "cute" as the name brand one's with their characters or designs in the front but overall, I would prefer a plain white diaper that holds its contents over price and appearance.
Drypers is good if you can change your baby every half an hour and never miss a changing. Drypers would probably be good for a newborn but not for a growing infant that consumes a lot of formula.
I noticed the size range tends to be a little smaller than the name brands so be careful of the weight to size proportion when purchasing these for your child and do not assume the numbered sizes are the same as the name brands.
