Top 11 Baby Diapers

By

Newborn babies go through about 8-12 diapers a day. That means that as a new parent, diapers are a big part of your life. You don't need leaks slowing you down, you need reliable diapers for your baby.

1. Huggies Supreme

Huggies Supreme diapers come in sizes newborn to toddler. I've never had a problem with leaking with these diapers. The outside feels more cloth like and moisture is wicked away from your baby's skin allowing them to feel more dry. Newborn size does have a cut out for the umbilical cord.

2. Huggies

This disposable diaper is a popular one. Though, unlike it's Supreme counterpart, it does not come in newborn size. The first size available is a 1. No leaking or other problems associated with this diaper.

3. Huggies Pure and Natural Diapers

The Huggies Pure and Natural Diapers are a really nice disposable diaper. They did not smell, even when wet, they didn't leak and they didn't cause a diaper rash. What more could a mom ask for in a disposable diaper? They are hypoallergenic, use organic cotton with a touch of aloe and vitamin E.

4. Seventh Generation Diaper

I really wanted to like the Seventh Generation Diapers. I mean, no chlorine and no gel on baby's bottom. But the fact that they leaked made it a real bummer.

5. Pampers

Pampers has a variety of different diapers for each stage from newborn Swaddlers to toddler Cruisers. These are designed to help prevent leaking. While I've never had a leaking issue with these diapers, the newborn variety seem to had an odd smell to them. Despite that these are very popular diapers.

6. Bumkins Diapers

Bumkins Cloth Diapers are all-in-one diapers that really do the trick. They are cloth diapers that do not require plastic pants. The material next to baby is soft and there are few problems with leaks when sized correctly.

7. G Diapers

These are supposed to combine cloth with disposable, but in the end they fail. You take a cloth outer part and affix a pad like diaper inside it. Then when it's dirty and wet you are supposed to remove it and flush it. Many moms love it - I don't get it.

8. Kissaluvs Fitted

If cloth diapering is up your alley, I highly recommend the Kissaluvs fitted diapers. The snaps make finding the right size for your baby easy and the newborn sizes come with top snap downs to protect baby's sensitive umbilical cord area. These are not all-in-one diapers (AIO), you must use them with covers to make them water proof. These diapers are also cute, particularly the colored diapers.

9. Kissaluvs Contour Diapers

The Kissaluvs Contour diaper give you a bit more bang for you buck by allowing the diapers to not be fitted. These cloth diapers simply sit inside your cover. Can be used with or without doublers.

10. Bummis Super Whisper Wraps (SWW)

The Bummis Super Whisper Wrap is an easy to use cover for any cloth diaper. You simply attach to the front of the pant using Velcro attachments to tighten and loosen as needed. You can use a wrap for multiple diapers, so you will not need as many wraps. It is important to remember to close the Velcro closures prior to washing.

11. Luvs

Luvs are nice diapers at a very competitive price over the top contenders. They are a bit harder to find.
