I have been looking at diapers in the store and there are SOOO many! Which kind do you use and which don't you recommend and why. I plan on breast feeding so I need a good absorbancy diaper! Thanks so much for you advise and help!

I used Pamper's swaddlers for my daughter when she was little.  They were great and I never had a leaking problem with them.  I am having a boy this time around and many of my friends have said the Wal-mart brand White Cloud works great for boys.  They must have more absorbency in the front area where a boy would pee.

A lot of this will come down to personal preference.  I use Pampers Swaddlers wiht the pampers sensitive wipes.  To me they are both the softest that I can find.  My sister liked swaddlers with her daughter but loved huggies with her son.  My SIL loved huggies for her son.

They have diapers out for you to touch inside the market and I felt the pampers swadlers and then huggies and luvs.  The huggies felt like they were a little more thicker?? Unless this was just cause multiple people had touched them before.?

i used Huggies with my son because he had issues where he would pee a lot and leak. They worked the best for us. I didn't like the Huggies wipes though, we used pampers wipes.

Pampers for sure. I have tried a few other brands and these work the best overall for my LO.

I have used pampers swaddlers and then the baby dry and now cruisers for my son. Never had a problem what so ever. He has only had wet clothes when I let daddy change his diapers when he was little. He didn't put them on tight enough so he would pee out of them. Other than that I LOVE pampers. But, I use huggies wipes. Go figure.

I like luvs the best! Next to that is huggies. It all depends on your preference and baby. I used huggies for the first 8 weeks, then pampers (only one pack because I didn't like them) and then luvs and that's what I've stuck with. My mom swear by luvs and she's had 8 kids!

I am only pregnant with my first, so I have no personal experience. But my sisters, cousins, and mom is all saying the same thing these women are saying...Pamper's Swaddlers!
