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).
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.
