4th child and very satisfied with this brand so far
January 27, 2019
So far our experience is with size Newborn and size 1. This is the fourth child, and there is a lot of diaper changing experience in our household- from old school cloth diapering to all brands of diapers. We're surprised by the negative reviews, and this prompted us to share our thoughts. We will update as we move through sizes.
Full disclosure, we used Huggies the first couple weeks due a medical issue keeping us in and out of the doctor's office and hospital with our little one. Having the pee notification line on the Huggies helped with the constant tracking of how many wet/soiled diapers our newborn had each day, but as soon as we could, we started using 7th Gen. We have been quite happy with performance. They certainly were no worse or better than the Huggies for leaks (both were much better than the other brands we sampled here and there), but we saw far fewer onsets of rashes once we switched.
We called newborn size "newborn and a half" because they were slightly larger than the other brands, but still smaller than all brands of size 1. (Maybe this is where an issue arises for some people.)
We did grab a pack from Target and ended up with the older design. Those were smaller- comparable to the other brands. We like the new design much more.
The inked designs are cute, but we buy these for performance, baby skin health, and environment. Honestly, we'd probably still buy them if they were an ugly brown. We do understand why they make them look cute for aesthetics and marketing purposes, but that is not necessarily a "bonus" for us.
