As a cloth AND disposable diapering mom, I hear on the playground all sorts of crazy tips about diapers, where to get them, who has the best ones AND even how to get the stinkies out of my cloth diapers!
Since switching my toddler (almost TWO!) from cloth to disposable during my pregnancy (I’m a whimp and couldn’t handle the poo), I’ve run into leaks and blowouts and puddles. Problems I didn’t have with the cloth. I use the AmazonMoms site and get our diapers sent to our home on a monthly basis (can you say FREE SHIPPING?). HOWEVER, this act of laziness (or brilliance) doesn’t help to support our local economy AND I can’t get the brands that I totally LOVE! Here are my 3 favorite disposable diapers (that I’ve tried so far):
3rd Place: Target brand diapers – Pros: I LOVE the little polka dots on the bum (wish they had pink ones too). Not too many problems with leaking or fit with these. $0.17 per diaper (cheaper than Costco’s bulk deals) Don’t have the weird diaper smell (that I hate, hate, hate.) Cons: Don’t work for overnight.
2nd Place: Walmart brand diapers – Pros: Cheap $0.17 per diaper and effective. I think they hold up better than Target brand diapers. They are pretty sturdy. Cons: Ugly. (I don’t need poorly drawn cartoons on my kiddos bum. White please.)
1st Place: Safeway brand diapers – Pros: AWESOME closure – I mean this Velcro sticks SUPER tight 🙂 Great leak protection and great fit. Also a great price at $0.17 Cons: Ugly. These aren’t terrible, but I think I just have a thing against teddy bears.
Alright ladies, do you think I’m CRAZY? Have you tried other brands that YOU swear by? Let me know WHERE you buy them and HOW MUCH!
