  • NO! When we had my oldest we tried everything we could. And we preferred Parents Choice more than anything. They fit well, were soft and never leaked. That said, I prefer cloth to anything, that's all my daughter uses, I wish I would have done cloth with my oldest.

  • Some people seem to find generics that they love, I didn't. I tried a few, including other name brands, and they never fit my daughter anywhere near as well as the Huggies did.

  • I have found that Pampers even leak sometimes.. and squish poop out. I haven't ever used a generic brand diaper, but I heard they leak.

  • They were in our case. Huggies was the only diaper my DD could wear. Every other brand either leaked or broke her out.

  • White Cloud diapers suck! the rest are all the same imo except Huggies...ive rarely ever had a Huggies leak.

  • Huggies are great. We also have luck with the babies r us brand. They are cheaper but work well.

  • love generic...way cheaper...all they hold is pee and poo... i also love the parents choice... they are the best we have found... but at night we use huggies nightime because they hold in the best... they don thave a generic night time diaper so huggies is it... but other than that we like generic the best

  • Not necessarily. Every baby is different. What works on 1 of your children, may not work on his or her twin. Find what works best for each child and use it. Remember diaper services too. Cloth diapers have changed a lot, and sometimes they are the only ones that work well.

  • The only diapers I have ever had a problem with are the walmart parents choice. I used 3 diapers and all 3 times as soon as she peed her pants were wet

  • It really depends on your kid, different diapers fit differently on different bodies. A lot of people love huggies...they do not work for my son every single one leaked and they just seem small to me. I'm also not a fan of parent's choice not as bad but just didnt seem like good quality to me. The off brand that works really well for us is target's brand Up & Up. They are a decent price and we have never had a problem.
