Miny Moe Sampler - Our Results
For those not yet in the know, Miny Moe has multibrand diaper and nursing pad samplers, letting new moms (and dads) try out all the top brands in one go to find which works best for their family. In regard to diapers, each baby has a different shape and sensitivities. What works great on one baby will leak or blowout or cause diaper rash on another, so you really don't know what's going to work til you've tried it! Whats more? Perhaps you have one brand of diaper you like and have been using since birth, but are intrigued by cheaper or greener brands. Miny Moe Samplers are a great way to try out other brands before investing in the economy packs at the store or the online subscription services!
I finally got to try one on my lil' guy and who knew I could be so excited about a box of diapers? hahaha!! We tried the size 3 sampler. Here's our diapers fresh out of Miny Moe packaging (each brand's pack of 5 diapers comes individually sealed and labeled) and ready to go on the changing table! Interesting to see them all stacked up together - such varying lengths! I totally went for it, feeling them (some super soft, others very stiff), and smelling them (some wreak of chemicals, some smell yummy, and some have no smell).
As we worked our way through the sampler, which includes 5 diapers from 6 brands (Pampers Cruisers, Huggies Little Movers, Honest, Luvs, Target Up & Up, and Walmart Parent's Choice), I tried to really test out their strength and absorbancy letting diaper changes go much fewer and farther between than usual. I was pretty impressed with how much they all actually held, of course some were better than others...
As you can see the Parent's Choice diaper had a major leak on my lil' guy, but that's not to say it's a terrible diaper and wouldn't work on your baby. It was probably a mixture of not fitting my man's legs well and possibly not great absorbancy and probably he was sitting/laying at a bad angle at the time of expulsion, haha!! FYI in case you're like me and don't have a Walmart near you, they ship diapers for $0.97, so don't let that be a factor in your decision!
I kept track on the handy dandy score card, which pre-scores the diapers in the categories of eco-friendliness and price, and lets you score on the other categories of softness/irritation, fit/absorbancy, and cuteness/design. I personally felt price was the #1 consideration, so I doubled those points before tallying up my scores. You can see Pampers, Luvs, and Target all scored equally high for us, so then I went back and compared how they rated in each category. Softness didn't really matter to me, so I went with Target as the winner based on their bargain pricing. Just for fun I went ahead and ranked them: #1 Target, #2 Luvs, #3 Pampers, #4 Huggies, #5 Honest, #6 Walmart. I was really surprised that Huggies did as well as they did. They were horrendous on my little guy as a newborn - seriously there was poo EVERYWHERE we laid him down! They just didn't seal around his skinny little legs! But now the size 3 did great. Just goes to show you, as your baby grows and changes, his best diaper brand might also change! They're always keeping us on our toes...
Keep in mind this is just how they worked on MY baby and with my own personal preferences in mind! Your baby might be longer and leaner, or shorter and chubbier, so diapers will fit him or her differently. Also, you might think some categories are more important than others. For example, if you feel eco-friendliness is more important and you would double or triple that score, whereas for me it was all about a diaper that is cheap and doesn't leak. Period. Softness and cuteness is just a bonus.
And finally, here's my lil' guy modeling all of the brands, how cute is he?! haha I'm a bit biased...
Go ahead, you know you want to give Miny Moe Diaper Samplers a go!! They have size Newborn, Size 1, and Size 3 available in packs of 5 of each brand (30ct), 1 of each brand (6ct), a NB/Size 1 combo sampler (36ct), and also you can make your own custom pack!! 10 diapers in any combo of brands!
