Top-Best-Baby-DiapersThe 20 Best Baby Diapers of 2017

 

KOKOPAX TOP PICK

After more than 3 months of testing, we are happy to announce that our top baby diaper is the Pampers Cruisers Diaper.

Though the race was really too close to call, we chose to give this bestselling infant diaper 1st place because of the extremely high level of praise that our parents heaped on it.

Definitely one of the most absorbent and durable nappies on the market today, we found that it did everything it claimed to do on the box. It uses absorption channels to draw away moisture from your baby’s skin, and by distributing it evenly throughout the material, the nappy is able to absorb a much greater amount of liquid.

The diapers also fit extremely well thanks to the designs 3 way fit system. This system allows the diapers to constantly adjust at the legs, waist and on the bottom while baby moves around to maintain a comfortable fit at all times.

Our parents loved these diapers almost as much as our infants seemed to love wearing them. If you are looking for an excellent diaper for infants with normal skin, these are the ones you should buy.

What do I need to know before I buy diapers for my baby?

So the time has finally come for you to start changing messy diapers. Well, we can’t promise you that this chore will ever be a pleasant one, but we can help you find the best diaper for your baby.

Choosing the right diaper for your baby will save you a lot of time and leaking mess, not to mention make your baby’s life much more comfortable too. Diapers that are well padded absorb more baby mess while also generally being more comfortable to wear. Trust us, you want to try to avoid diapers that don’t fit properly for reasons you will discover the first time your child goes to the bathroom when wearing them.

So what things should you look out for when buying a baby diaper?

Good Fit

The most important thing about a diaper is that they fit tightly to your child without causing discomfort. Though it might be the best diaper in the world, if it doesn’t fit your infant properly, then it won’t do a very good job at catching all its mess.

To ensure that you are getting a nappy that has the best chance of fitting well, we recommend that you read the product information carefully to see what kind of support aids it has.

Nearly all diapers will have elastic waistbands, but you should make sure that the product emphasizes how well they fit and what kind of system they use to prevent leaks. Pampers for example, have a patented Leak Lock system on some of its diapers, which is designed to overcome this problem.

Absorbent

This might seem too obvious to mention, but it is worth checking out exactly how the diaper deals with the problem of baby mess. You should look out for diapers that have absorption systems that channel the babies’ liquids away from the skin to other parts of the nappy. This is vital as it helps to prevent baby feeling uncomfortable, as well as preventing rashes also.

Breathable

This might sound strange, but good quality baby diapers now come with a breathable outer layer that helps let air in and out to prevent your baby from sweating. These materials don’t let liquids through and so prevent unwanted leakage.

Designed for Sensitive Skin

If your baby suffers with sensitive skin or eczema, then it is vital to make sure that you buy a nappy that has been specifically designed for its skin.

Baby diapers for sensitive skin will be hypoallergenic, meaning that they won’t cause any allergic reactions that might trigger skin rashes. They will also only contain chemicals that are gentle on your baby’s skin, rather than ones which would cause irritation. Alcohol for example, is used as a disinfectant, but strips the skin of vital oils and therefore makes it more vulnerable.

Organic or Made with Natural Products

More and more parents are turning to diapers that have been made only with natural, plant based products.

The reason behind this is simple, since most products these days contain artificial chemicals that are largely petroleum based. It is still unclear of the long term effect of some of these chemicals, several of which are only decades old.

Many parents feel that exposing their newborn to all these unnatural chemicals is a risk they don’t want to take. As a result, they choose to buy products that are made from natural products only. This choice carries with it a few problems, firstly these natural nappy’s cost more, and secondly they are often less effective than petroleum based ones.

How we review

We are online review site that specializes in baby products. Though we employ a full time team of experts in the field of baby care, we leave the vast majority of our testing to real life parents and their babies.

Our team of experts start by selecting a range of products for each review, which they think have a chance to be the best in their class. After they have done so, we set our parents and babies loose on them and monitor their progress and feedback.

It is from all this feedback and testing, that we then choose the top products for our reviews. Though many didn’t make it to this article, it is not to say they aren’t good products in themselves, it is simply that we felt they weren’t the best ones.

Pampers Baby Dry Newborn Diapers Size 1

Pampers Baby Dry Newborn Diapers Size 1 ReviewIf you have just had a baby and want a superb all round diaper for use at night as well as day, then Pampers Baby Dry Newborn Diapers are the ones we recommend.

These diapers are designed to be X3 drier than most other ordinary diapers. As a result, they are great for nighttime as they will absorb more liquids and so prevent your baby from waking up due to discomfort. As any parent will tell you, any extra undisturbed sleep time is a real godsend.

The reason for this extra comfort is the 3 layers of absorbent material that Pampers have somehow crammed into these baby diapers. This layer system is designed to give up to 12 hours of protection, making them ideal for sleeping and for day trips where you might not want to have to change a nappy while out and about.

Despite this, these diapers are really wearable, which thanks to their flex design really fit nice and snugly. Once you have seen how well they perform on your baby, it will come as no surprise to discover that these are the number 1 choice of nappy for hospitals throughout the US.

If you have just had a baby and want a superb all round diaper for use at night as well as day, then Pampers Baby Dry Newborn Diapers are the ones we recommend.

This ultra-absorbent nappy features their patented GentleAbsorb* Liner, which absorbs your baby’s mess away from its skin to help prevent as much discomfort as possible. Not only that, this soft material also makes the diaper nice and comfortable for your little one too.

Our parents all stated that they want a wetness indicator in the diaper, and this one changes color to show just how wet the nappy is. This diaper fits really well and gives your baby plenty of flexibility to move around with.

It is also hypoallergenic and so is good for babies that suffer from sensitive skin, something that is helped by the fact that they are made from a breathable material that helps to prevent sweating and therefore skin rashes.

Made from high quality natural materials such as bamboo, they do not contain any harmful chemicals like alcohol, chlorine, phylates or perfumes. They use natural aloe vera to keep your baby’s skin healthy, while containing antibacterial qualities to help prevent nasty bacteria from getting at your baby’s skin.

Luvs Ultra Leakguards Diapers

Luvs Ultra Leakguards Diapers Review

If you are looking for a really good diaper but one that is not going to break the bank then these are ones to seriously consider.

To be honest, we were a little shocked that these performed so well, despite the fact that one of our team already uses these at home. They are really absorbent and seem to fit very well also. None of our babies ever showed any sign of discomfort from the moment we put them on until we took them off again.

They come in 7 different sizes, from NB to size 6 and have cute animal designs on them to help your little one look even cuter. We found this diaper’s Leakguard Core system to be really effective at preventing much in the way of leaks and felt that they have onf of the best fastening systems too.

Huggies Overnites Diapers

Huggies Overnites Diapers ReviewThese diapers have been specifically designed to use on sleeping babies. What is the difference we hear you ask? Well they are made to be more absorbent than other diapers so can stand a night of your baby doing its business without leaking all over the place.

Huggies claim that they are 25% more absorbent than other diapers and though we couldn’t substantiate that claim precisely, we can say that they certainly seemed to absorb more liquid than most other diapers we tested.

The way they manage this is by making the diaper from thicker material at the expense of flexibly. Since your baby doesn’t need to move around at night this is not a problem. They allow plenty of flex for normal sleep and have a great double fastener to prevent them coming undone at night.

Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive Newborn Diapers

Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive Newborn Diapers ReviewThese nappies are another great option for those parents with a baby that suffers from sensitive skin and the number 1 choice for those loyal Pampers fans.

They are hypoallergenic and very soft on your baby’s skin. We found these diapers didn’t cause any rashes or irritation whatsoever. The really effective absorb away liner works really well, while the wetness indicator quickly tells you when it’s time for a nappy change.

These nappies come with an umbilical cord notch for use with newborn babies, and can be used for both day and nighttime use. We found them to be a great all round diaper that never seemed to leak. The only issue we found was that they are strongly scented, something that shouldn’t be the case if they are designed for kids with sensitive skin.

Bambo Nature Premium Baby Diapers

Bambo Nature Premium Baby Diapers Review

Ok so we need to be honest, these diapers are definitely not meant for anyone who spends more than two seconds looking at their bank statement. They are however a really great ecofriendly diaper that is both comfortable and extremely absorbent.

Our parents really loved just how rugged these nappies really are. They are one of the best absorbing diapers we tested, while at the same time being extremely gentle on your baby’s skin. They are free of all harmful chemicals and allergens and are made from sustainably produced products that give the earth a real heaping hand too.

Seventh Generation Baby Diapers

Seventh Generation Baby Diapers Review

Most new parents will never have heard of Seventh Generation, but we can promise that they will certainly be impressed when they try out these diapers that are made from sustainably sourced and FSC® certified materials.

For those parents wanting peace of mind that they are taking as much care for the environment as they are for their baby, these are the diapers we would definitely recommend.

They are really absorbent, hypoallergenic and contain no artificial chemicals or fragrances, meaning you get complete peace of mind when using these nappies.

We did find that these diapers suffered occasionally from blowouts, which is where the diaper literally comes undone and if there is any mess inside lets it spill out everywhere. Otherwise these are a really great ecofriendly diaper.

Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers

Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers Review

These bestselling diapers from Huggies would have been fighting for the top place on this list, but thanks to a recent redesign that has made them thinner, they are sadly no longer quite as good as they used to be.

That said they are still a really great diaper that beats most of the competition hands down. They do all the things that diapers are meant to do and they do them really well. They are not specifically formulated for babies with sensitive skin, though they didn’t seem to cause much in the way of irritation or rashes in our babies that do suffer from it either.

Were it not for their redesign that we do feel has led to a performance drop off, these diapers would certainly be much higher on this list.

Conclusion

You will have guessed from this list just how much there is in the way of choice when it comes to baby diapers.

We are sure from the feedback that we got from our parents that no matter which of the baby nappies you choose from this list they will be more than up to the task. We do though however, need to remind you that choosing the best baby product for your infant is never an exact science.

Provided your baby is not suffering with sensitive skin and providing that you are not looking for ecofriendly baby diapers then we definitely recommend starting out by trying Pampers Cruisers Diapers.

They give unbeatable levels of absorption and comfort at a really reasonable cost. If you need further persuading, we suggest that you start reading some of the really impressive feedback these diapers are getting from their legions of satisfied customers.

What nappy for my baby should I buy?

Buying a baby nappy can be a really complicated task. There are so many on the market for you to choose from, all of which do slightly different things. You will need to decide on your budget, whether you want a nappy for sensitive skin and whether you want an ecofriendly diaper before you begin.

We definitely would suggest reading a good quality review to get you started. After you have found a good product, then we recommend that you read plenty of customer driven reviews before you make your final decision. .

Are the best baby diapers always the bestselling ones?

No. As with anything, cost doesn’t necessarily indicate level of quality. Rather than worrying about price vs. quality, we recommend you start out by deciding on a maximum budget and then going from there.

This way you can search diapers without worrying about the cost and focus on what exactly they do and how happy previous customers have been with the results. This the best way to make sure you are going to end up with the best diaper for your baby.

What is the best way to find the best baby diaper?

We recommend that you take 10 minutes of your time to read a really well researched article such as this one. We tested all the diapers we reviewed, so got to see firsthand how good they really were.

We also recommend making sure to read a lot of customer driven feedback to get an accurate picture of what other people who have bought the product think about it. Though this does need some investment in terms of time, it will save you a lot of wasted time and energy further down the road.
