Best Toddler and Newborn Diapers

Kokopax Top Choice

Well, the race was very tight, but after our test parents drummed up more than 1000 total nappy changes, we award our gold prize for the best toddler diaper of 2017 to Pampers Baby Dry Newborn Diapers. This diaper came out top in the 3 most important categories, absorbability, comfort and the overall protection that it offers your child.

Designed as a general use nappy, these Pampers diapers for toddlers are great value for money, costing a very reasonable $0.16 per diaper. Our babies seemed to find no discomfort while wearing these, even after they had relieved themselves as they continued to do all the things that babies love to do without seeming to notice.

Our parents all said how impressed they were with these diapers, particularly at how soft and effective they were. They all said that they were one of the best at ensuring no unwanted leaks, while they also gave these top marks in terms of being able to get them on and off very easily. Our team of experts was also equally as impressed.

They found the nappies unique Absorb Away Liner to work really well alongside the inbuilt absorption channels, to pull away any liquids from your child’s skin and prevent discomfort. The diapers wetness indicator works really well also, making these diapers our top all round choice baby nappies for your infant.

Baby diapers explained – Everything You Need to Know About Choosing the Right Brand

As with everything in the modern world, baby diapers are a lot more complicated than they might seem. The diaper industry is a multi-million dollar a year industry that employs scientists and large research & development teams. Each diaper company is working round the clock to better the other ones in an effort to make the best possible diaper for your infant.

As a result, there are a vast range of infant diapers that are specifically designed to cater to different demands. There are general use diapers, nappies designed for sensitive skin, diapers that are ecofriendly, non GMO diapers and sustainably produced diapers, to name but a few.

Finding the best diaper for your child therefore becomes a science. You will need to balance your own personal choices against the overall cost. General use diapers are petrochemical based and contain a series of chemicals such as chlorine that many parents don’t want coming into contact with their child’s skin.

However, if you are looking for cheaper baby diapers that perform the best, then these are the ones people will choose. This fact is the reason that these are by far the best selling nappies on the market.

For those parents that want to abstain from exposing their children to as many chemicals as possible, whether it is for a moral reason or because their baby might suffer from delicate skin, they can choose to buy natural diapers, as these will be made from sustainable and renewable sources such as corn or wheat etc.

The problem with these is cost. A natural diaper will make a much larger dent in your pocket book that a non-natural one. Generally it has to be said; that they are also a little less effective than normal diapers as sadly, oil based products always seem to outclass the rest.

How we review

In order to find you the best baby diaper of 2017, we tested a huge range of different infant nappies, from general use ones, all the way through to the most expensive organic natural diaper available.

We conducted months of testing on all our diapers, which involved more unpleasant diaper changes than we care to remember. You will be happy to know that we didn’t cut any rather appealing corners that would have saved many of our team from being put off eating their lunch that day, but rather put all our diapers through the same rigorous testing.

As an independent baby product review site, we take our job very seriously since we understand how important it is to offer parents reliable and honest information from which they can make their decisions.

We don’t accept any financial rewards for offering any particular products favorable reviews and though most of the products we review did not make it to this list we don’t mean to suggest that those products are not worth considering should you want to.

Huggies Little Snugglers Baby Diapers

Huggies Little Snugglers Baby Diapers ReviewWell, as with any race there has to be a runner up. Sadly we had to award bump these diapers back to second place. The only reason we chose to do so is that we understand how much the cost of diapers can add up over the year, and sadly these diapers are quite a bit more expensive than the Pampers ones, costing $0.26 to the Pampers $0.16.

Otherwise there really is nothing in it. Both the diapers are super absorbent, feature a really effective wetness indicator, and are super soft and comfortable for babies to wear.

These diapers are available in a very handy, 7 different sizes meaning that no matter what your babies size there will be a diaper to fit it. Our parents were particularly impressed with these diapers breathability, which dramatically reduced the amount their child sweated when wearing them.

They are made from sustainably produced bamboo, so are much better on the environment both in terms of being renewable and also 100% biodegradable after you throw them away.

Our parents loved these diapers, which preformed nearly as well as the non-natural ones above. The only drawback is that they cost $0.38 per diaper, which is quite a leap in price, but one that will give you peace of mind knowing that you’re infant is not being exposed to any harmful chemicals and that you are doing the environment a great favor too.

Cons

  • At $0.38 a diaper, more than double the price of the Pampers brand.

Bambo Nature Premium Baby Diapers, Maxi, Size 4, 30 Count (Pack of 6) (One Month Supply) Review

Another superb ecofriendly diaper, these really absorbent nappies won the hearts of our parents and babies for their super comfortable design. They are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic for your baby’s skin.

We found them to be really effective at reducing rashes on our babies with sensitive skin and felt happy knowing that each time we threw one away we weren’t doing much harm to the environment.

Another superb ecofriendly diaper, these really absorbent nappies won the hearts of our parents and babies for their super comfortable design. They are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic for your baby’s skin.

We found these to leak ever so slightly on smaller babies so put them in second place to the Andy Pandy diaper. However, if the Andy Pandy diaper is a little out of your price range then these might just make it, as at $0.32 a diaper they are more affordable.

Cons:

  • Leak on smaller babies when they might not seal as tight as other designs.

Our Final Thoughts 

We are 100% positive that should you decide to choose any of the baby diapers on this list, you will be more than happy with the results.

Which one you chose is entirely down to whichever one suits you best. If you are looking for a low cost, best all round diaper then we recommend the Pamper baby diaper.

On the other hand, if you are concerned about the environmental impact or have a baby with sensitive skin, then we recommend that you put cost aside and buy the superb Andy Pandy baby diaper.

What is the best baby diaper for my child?

Finding a good diaper for your baby might be a bit of a lottery, but with plenty of research it is a gamble that can really pay off. With so many diapers out there, you want to make sure that you are not buying one of the bad ones instead of the really good ones.

We recommend that you spend your valuable time reading review articles from reputable sites such as our own, as well as plenty of customer feedback on sites such as Amazon. Reputable sites such as these insist on any incentive driven feedback declared as being so, which means that you will be getting honest, first hand options from parents such as you, who actually are using the product with their child.

Do baby diapers for sensitive skin really work?

If your infant suffers with sensitive skin then you will be looking for solutions to help reduce skin rashes and other skin disorders like eczema. All the major baby care companies realized that there was a real need for nappies that did more to project your child’s skin.

This spurred the development of diapers that have been specifically tailored for sensitive skin. These nappies are made with materials that are hypoallergenic, meaning that they don’t cause allergic reactions that lead to rashes.

These diapers are also usually made with completely natural ingredients and so don’t contain any harmful chemicals such as chlorine, alcohol, PVC, latex or perfumes, all of which can trigger reactions in your babies skin.

Are natural baby diapers better than petroleum based ones?

Though there is as yet, not solid evidence regarding the health effects of synthetic chemicals on the human body, it makes sense that before we have definitive proof that you take care to avoid as many of these chemicals as possible.

We strongly recommend that whenever possible, that you try to use diapers that are made from natural products that come from plant based sources, rather than oil based ones.

Any diaper brand that goes through the trouble to make sure that their materials are all naturally sourced will be taking extra care to make sure that their diapers contain the minimum amount of chemicals possible, so as to reduce your child’s exposure to them.

Nappies that are made from natural materials will also be much kinder to the environment, provided that those materials are sustainably sourced. Be sure to check to see whether these products are farmed sustainably and wherever possibly organically too, as this will also help to cut down on the amount of non-renewable petro chemicals in manufacturing the diaper.
