I liked Pampers best for newborns, and until they reach about size 3.
With my experience, it really depends on the shape of the baby. Everyone I know used huggies and gave me them fo rmy baby shower etc. Then when I had the girls huggies just leaked everywhere so I used the pampers because thats what they had in the hospital and never had another leak. But like both my sister and dh's sisters kids leaked bad with pampers.
With DS, I used Pampers Swaddlers and then Cruisers. Eventually we had to go to Huggies Overnights with a Diaper Doubler for night time. He would leak if we did anything less at night time!
