    Yeah, I agree with State Chick that it's totally a boy thing. I mean it seems that the boys pee out of them at night. NOt sure why that is. Keeran never overpeed a diaper. Weird. I vote Target brand too...my faves for ALL three of my kiddos.

    I too LOVE how you are posting things like this....so awesome!!! LOL

    I agree with the ladies, seems it all depends on the child. We tend to go with Pampers though and Luvs.

    Definitely once u figure out what brand works for you Pampers, Luvs, Huggies...and going up a size makes a huge difference too. My kids are skinny ones but bc they are very tall we always are the next size up. Definitely do the amazon mom subscription and then subscribe and save. Great deals on diapers. I just purchased size 1 pampers for baby for under 7 cents a diaper. If you don't have any of the codes from american baby etc to stack with the subscribe and save let me know I'll track some down for you.

    Here's the link of all the steps to do the Amazon mom deals over and over.

    We used Pampers Swaddlers with Mason when he was an infant, and up until size 2-3. We also used the Luvs that were given to us, but mostly Pampers. I used the cruisers for a while too once, although I started having to use the Huggies Overnights at night because he was leaking EVERY night. After they changed the Pampers to the DryMax, I started buying Huggies Little Movers, not because they affected him, they didn't, but just because I had heard of so many people having issues.

    Now we are in training pants/underwear except for naptime/nighttime!

    Brittany, I have only been able to use an extra coupon besides the subscribe & save and amazon mom discounts the very first time I did it. Now I have 20% off codes from my Parents mag occasionally and I can't use them w/all the deals I'm already getting. Am I missing something, or did it only work for you the first time too?

    I think it's a trial and error thing. I prefer Huggies these days, but Luvs are also pretty good. I remember using Pampers with Andrew, but I find that they leave more residue than others (the beaded gel stuff). Store brands are usually pretty good, and I use them too. For me, it depends on what's on sale and what I have a coupon for. Jack's in cloth diapers about half of the time (I need to buy more for him since he's outgrown a lot of his), so I'm trying to be economical for the rest of the time he's in disposables.

    Ashley-
    As long as u do the following you should be able to repeat:
    1. cancel the subscribe and save subscription you have after you receive the shipment.
    2. as long as the amazon diaper 20% off codes are of different exp date

    So far I've used coupons with 11/30 12/31 1/31 and now there just were 2/28 ones in the american baby mag.

    Hope that helps. If u have any other questions just ask and I'll try to answer them as best as I can.

    With my experience with all of my kids (yup lots of diapers) it didn't seem to matter with my kids what gender they were, that they all worked best with Huggies. It was with the twins that we didn't even bother diaper testing anymore. When they went to size 2 diapers, we added the size 3 nighttime Huggies for all of them (yeah, three kids were even wearing the same sizes at the same time, still could if Journi weren't mostly trained, so that made it a bit easier!) and bumped it up a size when they outgrew their daytime size. Rarely has it been a problem with leaking. When we tried the swaddlers on Journi, they literally fell apart. The tabs fell off, the outer layer was separating - it was awful. We usually buy our diapers and wipes in bulk at Sam's Club, especially when we don't have coupons.

    We loved the swaddlers that the hospital sent us home with...but did not love the price. We too used the White Cloud ones from Walmart...but before Xavier was completely out of diapers they quit selling them. So I tried a bunch of different store brands....and didn't like any. The Target brand were okay (and a couple close friends loved them for their kids) but Xavier's pee reacted funny with them and as soon as he peed they smelled horrible! We settled on Luvs. They worked great at a great price for a non-store brand diaper.
