  • While I prefered Luvs first, then Huggies, Pampers has the best for newborns for the belly button. They have a little notch cut out of the top of the waistband so it wont rub on their belly buttons. GL w/ the new baby :)

  • I used cloth diapers, but at the hospital, they put my little one in the pampers swaddlers. Being a first time parent, I really liked them because it had a little yellow line that turned blue whenever they messed, so that you knew to change them. Eventually we figured out what to look for, but when they're newborn and just a little pee comes out, it's helpful to know. It was also great to keep track of wet vs. dirty diapers for his first checkup. In my case, I noticed a really low number of wet diapers, which was a good thing-- he was dehydrated and had jaundice! I do credit those diapers with helping me realize just how little he was peeing.

  • It depends, some diapers will make baby's break out with a rash. I started with the huggies that have the spot for the umbilical cord, then after a while huggies started to break my son out so I switched to pampers and used them until he was potty trained. I have friends who bought store brand diapers because they were cheaper, and there isn't anything wrong with that, they just also broke my son out.

  • Pampers, hands down! Hospitals use them so you will see for yourself firsthand soon. Not only do they have a notch for the belly button but they have a mesh lining that keeps liquidy poop away from their skin. I never had a rash using those kinds. For older babies I switch to Luvs, but for newborns... Definitely Pampers

  • I preferred Huggies, I think, and second choice was the Pampers Swaddlers.

  • With Huggies we'd have blowouts that would go clear up to the shoulder blades with both of our kids. We had the best luck with Pampers. I LOVED the swaddlers when my kids were small. I'm not so sure about the new drimax weave stuff that pampers has come out with. We got out of diapers right before it took over.

    It really depends on your baby. and what works best though. Some parents say Pampers is awful, some (like me) used nothing BUT Pampers. Some moms try to use all natural/eco-friendly diapers, some do cloth.
