Has Anyone Noticed The Difference Between Huggies and Pampers?

I have been using Pampers Swaddlers on my daughter but they always seem to run a little smaller, so I bought Huggies and they seem to fit better and she'll have a little more room in the size I bought her....but has anyone noticed that Huggies fit better around the legs whereas Pampers always run small....maybe it's me but it's what I've noticed lol!!

  • i do not like huggies at all!!!!! They dont seem to hold as much as pampers. Rory wears the pampers cruisers now and i love them they hold alot more than huggies

  • I don't like Huggies as much b/c they seem too stiff. Have you tried Luvs? I like Luvs the best... they're very similar to Pampers now, but lots cheaper.

  • I would have to agree with nicole. I have always used Pampers, but bought huggies once because they were on sale, and i had to change her diaper like every 30 min! it was insane! They dont hold very much at all!

  • I have to agree with Nicole--- I don't like Huggies, either. They just seem so rough compared to the Pampers. But in answer to your question, yes, the Huggies do run a little larger than the Pampers.

  • I hated Huggies and Luvs, they leaked like crazy!!! I liked Pampers but once the freebies ran out, they got to be too expensive, even with coupons. I found that the Target brand and Giant Eagle( that's our local grocery store)brand worked just as well and they were alot cheaper!!

  • I dislike Huggies altogether. I had problems with all 3 of my kids wetting right threw them. Pampers runs a little smaller in the legs you are right but overall they hold up well.

  • I don't like either. Both fit my daughter horribly and make her leak. Oddly, the best for my daughter have been the Member's Mark brand from Sam's Club.

  • Yep. Everything shoots out of Huggies; I stopped using them when Jill was still tiny because I got tired of cleaning poopy clothes every day. Pampers are wonderful, but they break my girls out in a rash. I've uses Luvs for years now, and it's definitely my favorite.

  • Er, I didn't even answer you question. Sorry. I think I've noticed that the leg holes in Pampers are smaller, but I never minded buying a size up. Then again, Huggies is the brand that say they're specifically shaped for babies' legs, so that may be why.

  • i think if your baby has thicker legs, then huggies are for them. my dd's legs arent as chunky as some babies her age and she wears pampers. with the huggies everything leaked through them..
    we also always bought the sizes 1-2 and 2-3...they fit my DD great
