Diapers and Wipes

Okay, everyone, I need your feedback.

Chuck and I were given a ton of diapers and wipes, and we've finally gone through them all. Well, we didn't go through all the baby's diapers, but I had to return his because they leaked. They were Walgreen's brand. I had heard good things about Walgreen's diapers, but Tristan just blows out the sides of them almost every single diaper.

I'm wondering what your favorite diapers and wipes are and why. I also want to know where you buy them and where you get the best deals. I used to belong to BJ's and Sam's Club and I'm wondering if I should join again and buy my diapers there.

Here's what I know about what works and doesn't work and what I like and don't like. Luv's work for the twins. Where's the best place to buy them? At night I use Huggies Overnights and they work great. Again, where can I buy these cheapest? Target diapers also work for them, but I'm wondering if I can get Luv's cheaper elsewhere. It's my goal to get the boys potty trained soon, but with the language barrier that may take some time. I'm sure I'll be using the Overnights for a while.

For the baby I LOVE Pampers. I don't love how much they cost, even with coupons. When he was first born I used Huggies and I think those worked well for him, too. I just haven't bought them in size 2 yet (yes, he's in a size 2 already...). I haven't tried any other diapers on him.

In wipes I've been using Huggies Natural Care Unscented. I've been buying these at the commissary (military grocery store) and Walmart. I usually have a coupon. I like Pampers wipes, too, but find the Huggies cheaper. I don't like Target wipes because they leave behind lint. I also tried the Chub's brand at Babies R Us and I don't like how they smell.

So please, if you have kids in diapers, let me know what you like and don't like and how to get the best deal. I would love to go out on my own and price diapers and wipes, but it's not going to happen anytime soon.

Hey Juli,
If it helps, you can check online for the price at costco, sams and BJ's I think. I checked Sams at and typed in pampers and a bunch of choices came up - can't offer any other advice....yet.

I am all about Huggies diapers and pampers wipes. as for price...i dunno. they are just expensive.

OK, here's my feedback ..... We use Pampers Baby Dry. The cheapest I've found is at BJ's.

We're right now trying Luvs to see if they work for Luke. They're definitely cheaper than Pampers.

For night .... we used to use a fabulous invention called Diaper Doublers. They're like maxi-pads without the sticky stuff. I have a ton left that we're not using if you'd like them. You could put them in the regular Luvs and not have to use Huggies Overnights. They might also be cheaper than using the Huggies Overnights.

Wipes .... we use the Huggies Natural Care ones and we get them at BJs.

The great thing about BJs is that you can use manufacturer's coupons and they send you coupons in the mail!!!

I used Pampers when Charis was a little baby. Nothing else fit well. I moved to Huggies later. Tried Luvs again and they leaked. I used generic Sam's Club wipes.

Juli, I am using Luvs right now and they work well. With Luke I think I used to use Kroger brand but then had problems when he got bigger. He would leak out the top of his diaper at night. (Make sure his little boy parts are pointing down at night!)
For wipes I usually store brand, either Kroger or Target. As for cheapest place to get them, I think the big places like Walmart or Target are probabably best, but I don't belong to Sam's or BJ's so they may be better.

Hi Juli,
We use the regular Huggies diapers from Sam's. We tried the Members Mark diapers, but they gave Hannah a rash. She has really sensitive skin, so we figured we'd go with what we know works. I've heard Luvs are good, but have never tried them. We use Pampers wipes (I buy the big box at Walmart that has several packages in it). With Will we used Pampers diapers and Huggies wipes--go figure! Denny used Target wipes for the triplets, Huggies for the boys, and Pampers for Rebecca (had to do with how they fit).

I would NOT suggest cloth dipes for Haitian poo. LOL.

I have found that Pampers Baby Dry or Huggies Supreme work well. I have also used the Wal Mart diapers, Parent's Choice- they work well and are fairly inexpensive, like $13-14 for a box of 80-100. I also do well with the Parent's Choice diaper wipes. You can buy a box with like 450 in it for about $7.50. These are IN prices so it may be different where you live. Angie
