Pampers Swaddlers- Moms love Pampers! These diapers are very soft and thin, and many moms like this along with the snug fit. While all diapers will have leakage for young babies, most moms feel that the Swaddlers do the best job in containing messes, and are ultra absorbent. This is especially impressive given the lighter weight of the diaper. All in all a good choice, but a little more expensive than most diapers.
Huggies Little Snugglers- Designed for babies from Newborn through the first year, Little Snugglers diapers are a soft, absorbent product. While more affordable than their Pampers counterpart, more moms experience leaking with these as well- specifically with taller or leaner legged babies. Still, it is a great product and worth a try especially if your baby is in the normal height/ weight range.

Luvs Premium Stretch- A well known national brand and a much more affordable product, Luvs are a good product on which to start your newborn. While not as soft as Huggies Little Snugglers or Pampers Swaddlers, these diapers are very absorbent. They have a nice elastic fit around the legs and rise up high enough on the back to prevent frequent blow outs. Most moms choose Luvs because they feel they work as well as the leading brands at a fraction of the price.
Huggies Lil Movers- Huggies' competitor to the Cruisers, Lil Movers diapers are contoured to fit a moving child's body. Moms report that while bulkier and sometimes looser than the Pampers, they very rarely leak and hold up very well- even through the night. These diapers are also more expensive than other brands, but if they work for your child, it may be worth the extra money to avoid leaks.

Pampers Baby Dry- This is the less expensive version of Pampers diapers, and it is still a favorite for many moms. The diapers tend to be more absorbent than generic brands and provide a nice fit. Some moms do complain, however, that they run a bit small compared to other brands, so you might need to buy a size larger than normal. It is definitely worth the try if you are a Pampers mom and would like to save a little money compared to Cruisers.
Seventh Generation- Seventh Generation has long been known for its environmentally friendly products. Diapers are by nature, not environmentally friendly however, and here is where Seventh Generation faces a conundrum. Their recent line of diapers, Free and Clear, is a thinner, lighter and supposedly more eco conscious diaper. However, moms of toddlers with thinner legs complain that the fit causes leakage, so this is not a great bet for some long and lean children. And these diapers still have to use chemicals in order to absorb. These diapers are very pricey, so trying to be more eco conscious comes at a cost.

FuzziBunz- One of the most well known brands of cloth diapers, FuzziBunz comes with a 'one size fits all' package to really help you get more bang for your buck. The diapers come with various snaps to help ensure the right fit for your child no matter the age. You also choose the degree of absorbancy pads to insert so that there are fewer issues with leaks. All in all, moms who choose cloth diapers love this brand and the convenience, but many complain that as the baby ages, cloth diapers may cause more leakage at night.
Kirklands- This is a popular generic brand choice with a much lower price tag than its name brand counterparts. Like most diapers on the market today, Kirklands does a very good job absorbing liquid, and fits around a toddler's body relatively well. Some moms reported that these diapers fit more like a Huggies diaper and are best when the edges are flared out. If you are looking for a well made, well fitting diaper that is less expensive than most, then Kirklands may be the diaper brand for you.

Earth's Best- Another eco friendly brand on our list, Earths Best is developing a strong following due to the number of moms who felt the diapers helped with rashes. Many moms felt they needed to switch after their children developed blisters or rashes, and this brand seems to help ease some of these issues. In addition, while not biodegradable, this diaper uses far fewer chemicals for absorption. Finally, moms felt that within the eco friendly lines this diaper did the best in preventing leaks.
bumGenius- A second choice if you use cloth diapers, bumGenius is known to be a very absorbing cloth diaper. They recently came out with the 4.0 system which includes snap closures like that of the FuzziBunz. Many moms prefer this system, and feel that this diaper is now one of the best on the market. Most moms feel that it is very easy to use and clean, and that they are leakproof through the night.
