Diapers

As a parent of a new baby, you will stock your home, car, and bags with many baby products and gear. Diapers will be the one that you will use most of all. Walking down the diaper aisle for the first time can be one of the most overwhelming experiences of your entire pregnancy.

Even if this baby is not your first, new diaper products and manufacturers line the shelves. Maybe you want to include a good brand for your baby registry. Maybe you want to be prepared for potential late night diaper shopping when your supply is uncomfortably low. When it comes to diapers, there are so many choices! Where do you begin?

At Stork Advisor®, we understand the need for unbiased information.  Allow us to reduce the pressure that you might feel.  Before you start a list, it is important to decide what your family values most. We’ve narrowed the list to 5 categories of diapers.

1. Most economical

Up&Up

Buying Options:

Amazon will be the only link at this time for Best Overall.

Why We Recommend:

These diapers provide the leak protection you’re looking for without the use of any synthetic fragrances, latex, or lotions. They’ve also got a wetness indicator line that turns blue when wet to help you avoid any unnecessary hassle. Best of all, Up&Up diapers cost a fraction of the price of other brands. 

One mom said, “Finally!!! A brand that fits my children and keeps them dry! Just to give a bit of background information, my kiddos have sensitive skin and are solidly built, so it has been challenging finding diapers that will work for both. Well, I’m so happy the search is over!”

2. Most absorbent

Pampers Swaddlers

Buying Options:

Amazon will be the only link at this time for Best Overall.

Why We Recommend:

Listen parents, there is a reason that most hospitals hand your newborn baby to you in a Pampers Swaddler diaper. This diaper has a reputation backed by over 90,000 5-star reviews. The Pampers Swaddler is ultra-soft, absorbent, and hypoallergenic. It’s safe to say, you’ll be so satisfied with its performance that you’ll be happy to keep using them.

One mom said, “Pampers are the only brand we have used and continue to use! We tried others in the very beginning, and nothing kept baby comfortable and dry as good as Pampers. They are so soft for our little one, and we don’t have to worry about leaks.”

3. Most clean conscious

The Honest Company Diapers

Buying Options:

Why We Recommend:

The Honest Company is known for being plant based, cruelty free, and sustainably sourced. These diapers will keep your baby dry with a quilted liner to draw away wetness. These diapers have a wetness indicator to alert the parent that their baby needs a change! There are no toxic chemicals. The diapers are cute with many adorable patterns.   

One mom said, “This is the only brand of diapers that all four of my little ones have never reacted to! The glue in the straps and lining material from other “clean” brands always irritated their skin or caused massive rashes that would blister and bleed. This brand also has breathability whereas others made my kids itchy from just body heat and contact. We are an honest diaper fan for life! From cute to clean, they treat my kid’s skin right!”

4. Most creative

Hello Bello

Buying Options:

Why We Recommend:

You may prefer to make a single decision about diapers so that you don’t have to think about another brand again. Hello Bello is a newer brand that came onto the diaper scene with a grand entrance and a quick following. They are affordable, eco-friendly, and hypoallergenic. These diapers come in many different designs.

One mom said, “Hands down the very BEST and most affordable diapers ever! The prints are adorable. The quality is fantastic and very gentle on baby sensitive skin. Most important…no leaks!!”

5. Most eco friendly

bumGenius Freetime

Buying Options:

Why We Recommend:

It is amazing that 20-billion dirty disposable diapers will be placed into landfills each year. If that fact is upsetting to you, reusable diapers may be best. This type of diaper is better for our environment. It is more economical and can save you thousands of dollars over time. Sure, reusable diapers can be more work and messier.

If you’re looking for a reliable product that will hold up through all your diapering years, bumGenius is your diapering answer. They dry quickly without the hassle of inserts. BumGenius cloth diapers have a simple snap system so you can adjust the fit to prevent leaks.

One mom said, “These are my absolute favorites, and bumgenius does not disappoint. I also love that they are so trim! They are much less bulky than refolds, and the colors are so cute. We have never had a leak or a blowout with this style either. If I could start my stash all over again I would definitely buy a few more of these.”
