Let me tell you about diapers

I’m not a diaper snob, but I am. I am a frugal spender and will pay less for something if I can. However, sometimes quality trumps quantity and diapers is one of those products. Over the course of almost three years I have used Pampers, Huggies, Luvs, Target, and CVS brand diapers. I’m pretty sure Huggies were developed by a female because I have only heard success stories from mothers of girls. Maybe girls tinkle while boys stream? I don’t know. What I do know is that both of my sons have leaks when they wear Huggies. It’s not like they’re thin diapers, they can handle a lot of liquid. It just seems the extra absorbent areas are not where boys need it and therefor they leak. I have tired Luvs and found them to be time consuming. They are time consuming because you need to change a diaper like a newborn, every hour. My sons can fill up a Luvs diaper in less than an hour and when you change them, a Luvs diaper feels like a sponge dripping with liquid as you lift it to the diaper pail. Gross! Target was basically the same, super thin and doesn’t last long. I was pleasantly surprised by the CVS overnight diapers but because they are overnights, you get less diapers and it’s like paying for a premium brand. So last but not least, Pampers. I have never had an issue with Pampers. My favorite Pampers are the baby dry. These diapers are universal. They last during the day, through the night, a long drive, and it doesn’t matter if you are a boy or girl, I’ve never heard a mom complain about a Pamper baby dry diaper. They are simply, hands down the best diaper. Now, these diapers are not cheap. They cost up to 5 cents more a diaper compared to the cheaper brands mentioned above. However, are they really more expansive in the long tun? They last longer than the other diapers so you use less of them in a day. They do not leak so you are saving yourself detergent and hot water with laundry. Plus, you are saving time! Saving time from changing diapers and doing laundry. It’s totally worth it in my opinion. I used to buy my diapers at CVS with coupons and extracare bucks but when you add in the time and effort, I find Amazon family to be the way to go.

With Amazon Family you get an extra 20% off diapers. Right now you can get 180 size 4 baby dry for $28. That’s a good deal when you compare to Target at $46 and Walmart at $35. It took me a while to sign up for Amazon family because I was in denial and thought I could get a better deal with coupons, giftcards, and whatever other promotion I could find, but trust me, this is a great deal for diapers with no strings attached.
