Diaper Challenge

Have you wanted to try some cheap diapers but have been afraid to, just in case they didn't work? Well, I tried some. I bought the Wal-Mart brand Parent's Choice and Luvs. I bought small packages, which does not save money because they are still 20 cents/diaper, but I didn't want too many in case they were awful. Well, the Paren't Choice is not worth it. They are shaped like a brick and would leave that gel all over Whitney's bottom. The Luvs were pretty decent. They are made by the same company as Pamper's and are extremely similar to the Pamper's Baby Dry. The Luvs are just slightly thinner and a little crinkly on the exterior of the diaper. I never had any leaks with either diaper. I would go with the Luvs if you want to save a little money, which may be about $5 or a little more per month. If anyone has tried the Target brand I'm curious what those are like. I think I will be sticking to the Baby Dry's.

I also tried the Parent's Choice wipes and I stupidly bought a 3-pack. I don't like them as well as the Pamper's Thick Care. They are not as moist either. I may have to come up with more uses for them than just wiping Whitney's hiney to get through them!

If you're looking for a good sippy cup, the Gerber cups are AWESOME. They have easy grip handles and a valve that prevents leaking. They are so great we have four of them!


  1. LUVS are considered cheap generic diapers? Thats all Abby has EVER worn. I scored and didnt even know it:-) They were the only ones that would fit her when she was born, and we tried Huggies, but they leaked out the sides. I Love LUVS! But if you have wet wipes left over, you can use them to clean computer monitors, tv screens, telephones, etc... And I keep extra in the kitchen for wiping hands and mouth after meals, as well as some in the car for wiping carts, and her hands after we shop. The generic wipes from the commissary are $5 for a three-pack and they work great too!

  2. I love the Target brand. We just converted about a month again and I've been happy with them.

  3. I have heard good things about Target brand, too... Most of my friends that use them use the Target brand during the day and pampers at night. Target Wipes are okay, but I perfer the Pampers or Huggies Wipes.

  4. Grant: used Luvs almost exclusively. Tried WalMart brand, did not like them. HyVee brand was actually decent, never tried Target.
    Brynna: using Pampers now b/c they are cheapest at Costco. Costco brand is good too. Haven't tried anything else.
    Have always used Target wipes with both of them.

    I like the Nuby cups when first introducing a cup, it has a soft spout and made the transition easier for Grant, so I just used it for B too.

  5. I never tried the Target diapers, however do use the Target brand pullups....they are less absorbent and I find leak easily compared to national brand, but I just use them for nightime and naps now because my little one is almost fully they don't really have time to fill up as much! I wouldn't have used them for a fully untrained child though..way too messy and leaky!
