We just had our first child, so we are learning a lot about diapers!
While in the hospital, we were stocked up with Pampers Swaddlers, specialized hospital product. We did not intend to exclusively use this brand of diapers to be honest. At home we had an assortment of diapers, Huggies, Luvs, Parents Choice, and also Pure and Natural to test and discover by trial and error which ones worked best for our little guy.
After trying Pampers Swaddlers, we were impressd, but not sold immediately. After trying out other brands as mentioned earlier, we quickly discovered this is the best brand for our new baby. The diapers fit him well, they do not leak, knock on wood, they are soft and flexible, and the baby sesame street characters are so darned cute!
At Wal-mart you can currently purchase Pampers Swaddlers in the newborn size, for less than $9 for 36 diapers. Sure this is several dollars more expensive than the store brand. However, it is an expense I feel is justified after living and learning. With this brand of diapers we have less leaky diapers and the need to change his onesies and outfits has decreased dramatically. Pampers Swaddlers just leak less. Plain and Simple!
I will continue to use this brand of diapers and would be happy to recommend them to other parents.
