Huggies diapers, especially the Little Snugglers, during baby's first months. And you may read about why I prefer disposable diapers to cloth diapers here.
#1: Keeping baby dry and comfortable
Baby's comfort always takes priority when I shop for baby stuff. Baby's skin is soft and sensitive, so one of the key criteria for high quality diapers is whether they are absorbent enough to keep baby dry and protect baby's skin from irritants in their urine or stool. The material also needs to be breathable enough to keep baby comfortable.
Huggies Little Snugglers use the GentleAbsorb* Liner (sizes N-2) or the DryTouch Liner (sizes 3-5) to provide fast and high capacity fluid absorption. I'm amazed to find that both my baby's bottom and the inner surface of the diaper remain dry even when the diaper is already fully loaded with fluid. The Little Snugglers also feature a soft, breathable outer cover that helps protect baby's gentle skin.
#2: Long-lasting leakage prevention
Diaper leakage or blowout could be a messy nightmare because you will have to wash not only the baby, but also the sleepwear, the crib sheets, and even the mattress protector, if you get "lucky". Huggies's Leak Lock® System provides as long as 12 hours of protection so that you can have the peace of mind that no leakage is likely to bother you or your baby when baby finally starts to sleep through the night. The smartly designed pocketed-back waistband helps prevent blowouts, which is particularly useful for breastfed babies.
#3: Designed with both baby and parents in mind
Besides powerful moisture absorption and reliable leakage protection, I really love the Wetness Indicator of Huggies Little Snugglers. The indicator will turn from yellow to blue when baby pees. It's very helpful for monitoring baby's output during the first few weeks, when it's sometimes hard to tell if baby needs a diaper change or has gotten enough to eat. The Little Snugglers also feature an umbilical cord cut-out (preemie and newborn sizes) to avoid contact with baby's healing belly-buttons. All these unique designs make life so much easier for both babies and their parents.
#4: Great value
Huggies diapers are a smart choice for new parents also because they offer great value for the money. They are certainly not the cheapest diapers on the market, but they are highly affordable and of premium quality. It's fairly easy to find ways to save on Huggies diapers, such as manufacturer coupons, digital coupons, store sales, and additional savings for buying multiples or signing up for a subscription or auto-delivery program.
#5: Huggies Rewards
Better yet, Huggies rewards you for being a loyal customer. Every package of Huggies product you purchase earns you reward points that can be redeemed at Huggies.com for baby gear, gift cards, or sweepstakes entries for chances to win bigger prizes. The more you buy, the faster your rewards will accrue!
All these great features make Huggies Little Snugglers the best diapers for newborns and younger babies. Please feel free to share your experience with Huggies diapers or your favorite diaper shopping tips in the comment section.
