They are breathable and easy to use. You will admire the way your baby sleeps soundly when in this diapers. They never leak and stay dry for the benefit of your baby.
- Best 10 Choices
These are fantastic though, and by far the softest and most flexible ones we’ve ever used. They’re not kidding about them being absorbent too – I feel like her wet diapers are much harder to spot because they just don’t get poochy and bulky like other diapers do when they’re wet!
- Sweet Miles
These diapers are also stylish…as stylish as diapers go. I get sick of seeing Elmo and Grover staring at me as I am changing my son 10 times a day. It was refreshing to have a different pattern to look at.Parasol Co offers a couple different diaper themes that you can pick from, which offer different designs. Kind of cool.
- Dadly Reviews
They're not a "bulky" appearing diaper which is great aesthetically because gosh do I hate to see a baby in clothes and a noticeably huge bulge often referred to as the "diaper butt".
- Petite Plus One
Ideal for sensitive skin. So soft, and chemical free. These diapers put diapers to shame!
- Mommy On The Mound
They are made with high-absorbency materials and printed with baby-safe inks. I happen to think they’re also super cute.
- Wholesome Children
These are also free from harsh chemicals and are made with wood pulp from sustainable forests. Despite the soft, lightweight, and thin material, Parasol diapers are very absorbent and are leak-free. A lot of moms rave about how this snugly fits their active toddler and hasn’t had a blowout with this diaper yet.
- Baby Dot Dot
These diapers are perfectly safe for sensitive skin and are also really ultra-soft. They have something called Drylock Technology, which makes them super-absorbent.
- Best Diaper Reviews
What experts didn't like
These are little pricier than other brands and some parents saw occasional leaking or sagging.
- BestReviews
On the downside, this diaper didn't perform well in our tests for absorption which means there is a potential for skin irritation and diaper rash from contact with excess moisture. The absorption problem coupled with the average leak performance means this diaper is potentially going to disappoint and leave more than one person feeling wet.
- Baby Gear Lab
The only downside to this diaper was that I find the outside of them to show "wear" after being worn two-hours or more, especially if baby has on denim or a dark bottom. It seems as if it easily absorbs inks from other fabrics, so if baby has on blue jeans let's say, and has on a this diaper, you will notice slight hues of ink transfer on the diaper.
- Petite Plus One
Even though they’re made with unsustainable petroleum-based ingredients, Parasol diapers are yet another contender to consider if you’re looking for some of the safest disposable diapers for your baby in terms of problematic chemical exposure.

An Overview On Diapers

When it comes to disposable diapers, parents will appreciate their many benefits. Not only does this type of diaper reduce leakage, and thus the required amount of weekly laundry, but it’s also extremely convenient. Since there are several different varieties of disposable diapers on the market, there are a few things you’ll want to consider before choosing a brand.

Start by examining how well the diaper absorbs liquid. Huggies Little Movers Active Baby Diapers feature a DryTouch Liner that is designed to absorb wetness on contact. In addition, their special Leak Lock System keeps babies dry for as long as 12 hours.

Next, make sure that the diaper is soft on skin and has a comfortable fit. Remember, your baby is going to be wearing diapers for long periods of time. Luvs Ultra Leakguards Disposable Baby Diapers are made with refastenable tabs that are bigger than traditional diapers. This allows for a better fit, which will leave your little one feeling cozier.

Verify that the diapers are free of parabens, chlorine and bleach. You don’t want any of those chemicals, which can cause irritation, rubbing up against your baby’s skin day and night. If your baby has sensitive skin, look for the word “hypoallergenic” on the product packaging.

Look to see if the disposable diapers have a way to let you know when you’re infant has wet the diaper. For example, Pampers Swaddlers Diapers has a wetness indicator that shows you it’s time for a change. The indicator strip will turn colors when moisture enters the diaper, which eliminates the need for you to physically open the diaper to check for wetness.

You’ll also want to verify that the company making the disposable diapers cares about its customers. Mama Bear Diapers does just that by offering users a satisfaction guarantee with the ability to request a refund within a year of purchasing their diapers (should you find they don’t meet your expectations).

DYWM Fun Fact

Before disposable diapers were invented, parents around the globe used a variety of methods to keep their babies clean. Chinese mothers carried their infants in bags of sand, which absorbed the urine, while Russian moms used bags filled with moss that could be replaced when soiled. In America, babies wore diapers made of cloth.

Today, disposable diapers are much more common than cloth. It is believed that the shortage of cotton during World War II led to the need for disposable diapers. With the average baby using 10 diapers per day, it’s no wonder why the majority of parents have stuck with disposable diapers since they were first invented.

The Diaper Buying Guide

  • Check to see if the company selling the diapers has a rewards program. These programs provide you with points for every product you purchase, and since most babies use diapers for at least two years, that’s a lot of possible points on the table. The points can then be exchanged for gifts or coupons for discounted products.
  • Diapers can quickly stink up a house, so it’s a good idea to purchase a diaper garbage pail and set it next to your baby’s changing table. Most diaper pails work by having you place the soiled diaper in the bag, and then twisting the bag to seal in the odor after. Once the pail is full, you simply replace the specially designed bag and start over.
  • Consider purchasing a few square or rectangular bins to keep under or next to your changing table. Use the bins to store diapers, wipes, baby powder and diaper cream so that they are within arms reach. They make plain bins as well as decorative bins, and most styles are sold at affordable prices.
  • Once your baby grows out of a size, you’ll need to decide what to do with the diapers you didn’t use. If you only have a few, you can give them to your child for pretend play. When whole packs remain, consider donating them to your local pregnancy or family planning center.
  • When comparing disposable diaper prices, you need to look at both the diaper size and the number of diapers in each pack. For example, Pampers Swaddlers Diapers have a 216-count package of Size 1 diapers for around $55, while Luvs Ultra Leakguards Disposable Baby Diapers come in much cheaper at 252 Size 1 diapers for just under $30. Mama Bear Diapers Size 3 are available in a 160-count package for approximately $35, and Huggies Little Movers Active Baby Diapers run around $55 for 152 Size 4 diapers.
