  • I've switched around with no problem As long as they don't irritate your baby's skin it should be fine.

  • I have always bought whatever was on special and if I didn't like the diaper then I never bought it again but my son never had any rashes or problems.

  • Sometimes different brands fit differently - even if they are the same size. I tended to stick with one brand if I found they were reasonable and didn't leak. We didn't find any that caused rashes.

  • Of course you can use different brands! Find out which ones you like..
    I liked the daytime Pampers, and the nighttime Huggies. As long as they dont irritate babys skin, use whatever works!

  • You can generally switch amongst diapers without problem, unless your baby has very sensitive skin and reacts to things easily. That said, the only issue may be is if you find a crappy diaper and don't change baby often enough... diaper rash may be more likely. So if I am using a cheap brand I've never tried before, I am more careful about checking him often since it's hard to know how much each brand can actually hold before moisture will be against baby's skin. With Pampers he can last all night and sometimes still doesn't max the thing out (although we DO change him every morning anyway!). Some cheaper brands, not so much...and he will wake up red. Aside from that tid bit... it's fine to switch. Diapers aren't like formula in that way. lol.

  • I've always kept the brand the same (pampers) for the first 6 months or so and then went with cheapies.
