One of the most expensive items a parent needs to buy is diapers. Before a child is out of them, you could end up using a couple thousand. If the diapers are a poor quality, you use more and have to account for leaks that can ruin bedding and furniture. The most expensive diapers aren’t always the best choice either. What matters when you are buying diapers is that they are absorbent, keep your child comfortable and rash free, and don’t end up seeing you spend your food budget to make sure you have enough. These three diaper brands have proven themselves to be the best on the market.

Best Baby Diaper Brands

  • Pampers Swaddlers
  • Huggies Little Movers
  • Luvs Ultra Leakguard

Pampers Swaddlers

Pampers was the first to come out with a disposable diaper and they have never stopped improving on their original design. There is a leak core that holds wetness away from babies sensitive skin and inside the diaper. The swaddling design fits snuggly without binding and a wetness indicator helps parents know when the diaper needs to be changed. Walmart sells a box of 216 diapers for $46.99. That is less than a quarter a diaper.


  • Each diaper can last up to twelve hours if necessary
  • Material is made to be “blankie” soft against delicate skin
  • Come in sizes from Newborn up to 6 for toddlers

Huggies Little Movers

These were created with active crawlers and toddlers in mind. The adjustable tabs on these make sure they fit snuggly to prevent leaks for little ones in constant motion. The absorbency will keep your baby dry all night, preventing middle of the night wakings and diaper rash. These diapers have the distinction of being one of the most economical of the major brands. You can purchase 192 for $31.66 at Jet. That is less than twenty cents a diaper.


  • Comes in fun Disney designs
  • Has an improved moisture lock system to keep your baby drier longer
  • Leak resistant legs are soft and don’t gap or bind little legs

Luvs Ultra Leakguard

This is by far the least expensive diaper on the list but that doesn’t make it less in the area of quality. The inner moisture core quickly wicks wetness away from delicate skin, keeping baby dry and happy throughout the night. The manufacturer is so confident in their product they offer a full money back guarantee if you aren’t completely satisfied with the performance. Fastening tabs are wider than most other diapers, making it easier to get a snug fit in less time, even with a squirming little one. You can buy these for as little as eleven cents each at Walmart. They sell a 252 count box for $26.99.


  • Satisfaction is guaranteed
  • Soft material is also super absorbent
