Huggies newborn diapers suck

We had bought the huggies newborn diapers with the low spot for the umbilical cord as our DS's first diapers and he leaks through them constantly. We knows it's the diapers and not our new parent changing skills because he didn't leak through any of the diapers at the hospital or the samples we got. Has anyone else had problems with these diapers?

  • Yes actually I am not crazy about Huggies for ANY age, much less new borns. I have always been a pampers kind of girl.. or I have even found that Luvs is better for my 1 year old now. Some people love them, some people hate them..but your def not alone!

  • We had that problem with them as well. Then not only did they leak, my little girl broke out. So we went back to pampers. My sister had the same problem with huggies, and pampers breaking out her little one. She is actually lucky enough to be able to wear the Walmart brand.

  • I hated huggies and pampers. I think I tried every brand of diaper made and I liked Luvs the most. When both babies were in diapers, we used close to 100 diapers a week. We change a lot. :) When they got old enough to be small niagra falls I'd use an over night on them or if they woke up for something I'd go ahead and change them just in case. On a quick note...I cloth diapered with the AIO's and loved it better than any disposable. Disposables have a certain smell to them that stinks to me then when it's soiled it stinks even worse. There was no odor with my cloths. I stopped simply because I can't keep up with all our normal laundry let alone diapers on top.

  • I also did not like them. they would get wet and break open and all the gel would go everywhere. and it wasn't because I waited to long to change him. I change him way too much I think. I do however like the larger sizes of huggies. but so far pampers are my favorite. and Huggies wipes are my favorite.

  • Renta- I'm doing laundry every day as it is to have clothes to change him into when he soaks them, I can't imagine using cloth diapers, I'm all for people going green, but I'm exhausted enough without the extra work lol.

  • I also do cloth diapers and love it!! Not that much extra work then everyone thinks. I started out using pampers and huggies, I always dislikes huggies though....

  • Huggies Suck - PERIOD!

    Use cloth, or Parents Choice, I never found anything else worth using...
