Our daughter was running low on diapers and we intended on buying her a pack of our regular brand (Pampers) when we were at the store later in the day.
However, my mom mentioned she had a coupon for the Huggies Pure & Natural diapers so we found ourselves giving that brand a try instead.
I will admit I had some doubts about buying a different brand of diapers. There are a number of reasons why we like the Pampers brand and one of the main ones is, the last time we tried Huggies, we had an issue with them leaking all the time; usually around the legs. But, the coupon was for $3 off and you don’t get a chance to buy a package of name brand diapers for under $6 very often so I figured it was worth giving them a chance.
For the most part, the Pure & Natural diapers turned out to be better than expected.
We started using these diapers yesterday evening, when she ran out of her regular brand (yes, I know we probably should have started using them while we still had some of the Pampers left, just in case). One of the first things we noticed about these is how soft they were compared to other diapers. The Pampers brand isn’t terrible when it comes to this, but they feel a bit more paper-like when compared to these. The Huggies Pure & Natural were definitely more cloth-like and I think our daughter thought they were slightly more comfortable, too.
Of course, the ultimate test of these diapers came last night, when my daughter fell asleep. She is sleeping for several hours at a time now and, while she sleeps soundly, does move around quite a bit in her sleep (my parents usually don’t get much sleep when they watch her because it’s easy to think she’s awake and fussing).
I don’t like waking her when she’s asleep so her diapers are usually pretty soaked by the time I end up changing her. Despite this, the Huggies Pure & Natural brand did manage to hold. She didn’t leak once during the night, even when I had one of the diapers on her a bit crooked (I have issues in the middle of the night when I’m not fully awake and forget to put on my glasses). And, judging by the fact she was facing a different direction than when I put her down, I know she gave them a workout in her sleep.
I don’t know if I saw enough from this brand to justify switching away from our preferred Pampers brand. But, I would be comfortable buying this kind of diaper again if I couldn’t find the Pampers (which has happened) or if I had another coupon. If you are a new parent who is undecided on your brand, they are worth trying.
