Stocking Up on Diapers!
Fri, 03-15-2013 - 7:47am

We've decided that we'll be using disposable diapers for baby.  I want to start building up a stockpile, buying a few packs here and there.  However, I'm so torn on brands!  I really don't know which is best.  Which brands do you like/dislike?  Any recommendations on how many of each size we should pick up?

I buy whatever brand I can get on sale and  with a coupon. So I use whatever. I really like LUVS. They are cheap and work fine. I do like Pampers and they have the Gift to Grow codes which are fun. Have you signed up for that yet?  I am eh about Huggies. I think the sizes are weird and a bit saggy when wet. I stockpiled on the diapers with my last baby and ended up with too many #2. I had read advice that they would be in #2s the longest. I ended up donating about 4 packs. My DD is almost 2 1/2 and has no interest in potty training. I hope she is trained before the babyb arrives.

I love Pampers Swaddlers for newborns. They're so soft. After that I'll use anything that doesn't have Dry Max. You can google the issues with that. I started using cloth for my 2 year old when she was about 9 months. This one will go into cloth as soon as he/she is big enough to fit in them. If you decide to go that route, I can help you out.
