As an avid user of Pampers Swaddlers and an admitted diaper snob, I was very upset when my little boy grew out of this particular type of diaper (swaddlers only go to size 2). I naturally thought I would graduate to Pampers Cruisers regardless of the expense involved and had blind faith that they would be the best diaper out there. However, in an effort save money, I decided to try a few different brands of size 3's to see if my" Pampers premium diapers are best" theory held up. I decided to try both Huggies "Snug & Dry" and Pampers lower-end brand "Baby Dry." I am SO glad I did! The Huggies were not a hit from the get-go. They felt papery and cheap to me and the tabs were not very stretchy at all. I was very excited to get back to Pampers even if it was the lesser model. I wasn't expecting a lot from the Baby Dry and was pleasantly surprised after opening the package. The diapers are teal blue and white which is non-offensive to my little guy. They had "caterpillar stretch tabs" which make them fit well around baby's tummy. The legs holes also had a good fit without being so tight as to leave red marks. The diapers also had that familiar Pampers smell (like baby powder) that you either love or hate. I happen to love it! They were more "papery" than the Swaddlers though. After getting through my first pack, my most major complaint was that I like plain white diapers and not colored ones. However, I had no complaints at all about effectiveness. No leaks and no blow-outs, even overnight! Still believing that the Cruisers would be better (they were more expensive...how could they not be?) I purchased the Pampers Cruiser next. They were good diapers....the stretchy tab was stretchier than the Baby Dry version and they had the soft mesh liner. But for the price difference I was actually less than enthused about the Cruisers. Not to mention they are also papery and a bright purple. I am slightly uncomfortable with seeing my boy in all purple (picky...I know!) My conclusion: the difference in Pampers Baby Dry vs. Pampers Cruisers is minimal and does not justify the price difference. I'm sticking with Baby Dry!
