Huggies diapers: good for newborns and infants

Jan 7, 2005
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Mickey and Minnie Mouse design, many coupons recieved in newspaper

Cons:saggy, price, tabs, cover, low- rise, smell, LEAK!!

The Bottom Line: Stay away from these diapers if you have a toddler.


Of all the diapers I have tried, I believe Huggies are the worst ever. I don't think I have ever tried out a diaper that leaked and ripped as much as Huggies.

I believe when I went out to buy these diapers, I only had one reason to try them. That reason was because I had a coupon from the Sunday circular in the newspaper. I was going to buy the usual Luvs for my daughter, but the store was out the kind I buy. So I was stuck with the Huggies.

Now when I had been thinking of buying the Huggies I remembered all the problems I had with them. The tabs ripped and the diaper sagged. The cover felt like cardboard and they smelled awful. I figured they would have been remodeled because the packaging was different.

When I got home to see what features the Huggies had, I thought for a second I bought the wrong size diaper. But no, the Huggies size 6 diapers were smaller than the Pampers or Luvs size 6.

The Huggies diapers features:

Cloth cover-

I have no idea who thoght of the cloth cover for Huggies, but they mus thave been real dumb. The diaper felt like a piece of corrugated cardboard wrapped in copier paper for crying out loud. If I knew that I could have made a diaper like that at work. The cover for some reason is quite stiff. I have no idea how a baby could move in one of these diapers.

Velcro tabs-
Huggies was one of the first diaper companies to have the velcro tabs. Now all diapers have them today. Huggies are far more worse than Pampers or Luvs tabs. I have also had problems getting the tabs to hold to the diaper. These tabs can pull right off very easily.

Low-Rise-
These diapers are low rise. What that means is that you have a greater chance for having leaks and blowouts with these diapers. Note why I said "good for infants and newborns", you have worse chances with leaks if you have an older child.

Mickey and Minnie Mouse design- I believe this is the only good thing about these diapers. I must say the design is cute, but it doesn't really serve any major purpose on these diapers. It's really just there for the child to look at. But, if you think about it, your child will probably have pants on most of the day and won't be able to see it.

After observing the diapers for a while, I decided to change my daughter in to one. Even she complained about the sagging of this diaper. I could tell because she was waddling around the house in these diapers. It got worse though.

Now my daughter is a heavy wetter. Most children at the age of four are. This is what I was afraid of with Huggies. I knew there would be at least one leak. My daughter wet so much she made the cover on the diaper turn yellow AND make it leak. Plus I could smell the pungent smell of urine. So I had to change my daughter, clean her bottom, clean the carpet, and spray Febreze in the living room to get rid of the odor of pee.

I didn't even want to try these diapers at night. I was lucky enough to find some Luvs in my daughter's dresser and had her wear one of those for the night. That is our peferred brand anyways.

So what I do think of these diapers. Let me just say Mickay and Minnie and coupons don't persuade me to buy these diapers again. If you have a young baby, you might want to give these diapers a shot. If you have a toddler like me, you may want to avoid Huggies diapers.
