Best Diaper on the Market?
So far, I think it's Luvs. They have consistently not leaked (except for on long overnights, when they all leak). The worst so far are the generics (in the green packaging). I learned pretty quickly that paying a little extra might actually save money if your child can wear one brand a little longer than the others. We've had a consistent problem with the overnight leakage. I've tried getting a size larger, and also the Huggies Overnights, but both those remedies still leak overnight. Part of the problem is she insists on a bottle before bed, and one overnight. That's a lot of liquid. I'm toying with diluting formula, and also with smaller bottles to start weaning her off this habit that they taught her in the orphanage. But until then, there's a lot of laundry being done from the wet sheets every morning.
I'm thinking about doing a scientific experiment comparing Luvs, Huggies, Pampers and the generics. Just so I know for myself, for sure. Perhaps I'll post the results if anyone is interested. I'm thinking of doing an experiment like they do on the commercials for sanitary napkins with the blue liquid. Except Ill make mine yellow liquid, to be more realistic and less PC. Anyone interested in the results? If so, I'll post what I find. In fact, perhaps I'll post the whole experiment. Stay tuned! This is exciting blogging here!!!
What are your favorites brands, moms? Which seem to hold the most liquid? Any suggestions for the overnight leakage problem? What about inserts? I have yet to see them in a store, but I can buy them online. Has anyone tried inserts? Disposable or cloth inserts?
